I just have to second this. 'Really good' trackballs are quite
I don't know the Kensington models, but I use various ITAC mouse-traks
for more than 5 years now. I'm more than satisfied with them.
They are expensive, ... but my 5 year old serial version of the
Mouse-Trak Professional works and feels like brand new.

All models are featuring balls like this.

The Mouse-Trak Personal/Professional has three (configurable) buttons,
the 'Evolution' has 6(sic!) buttons. Three on the left and three on
the right site of the 'big ball'.
I have it configured like this (for right-hand use):
The buttons on the right are regulary pressed by the thumb, with the
thumb resting on the 'second' one.
- first button : programmed to switch between linear speed and
- second button: 'left button' / 'button 1'
- third button: programmed to 'left button' double-click
The buttons on the right side:
- sixth button: since the 'little finger' usually rests on it,
this button serves as a regular
'right button' / 'button 3'
- fifth button: the ring finger rests on it.
=> 'middle button' / 'button 2'
- fourth button: mostly used with the middle finger,
it's programmed to 'click and hold'
