Epps, Brian W. (1987): A Comparison of Cursor Control Devices on a Graphics Editing Task. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 31st Annual Meeting 1987. pp. 442-446.

Six cursor control devices (absolute touchpad, mouse, trackball, relative touchpad, displacement joystick, and force joystick) were compared on seven graphics editing tasks. Analysis of subjects' performance data showed better task completion times (TCT) for the trackball and mouse than the remaining four devices. Preference rankings by subjects reflected the performance results.
