Y-Adapter for Mouse and Trackball Question

I want to have both a PS2 mouse and a PS2 Trackball hooked up to the same PS2 port. I have seen Y-adapters for as little as
5 bucks and some mouse "splitters" for 30 to 50 bucks.

Is there a difference? Will the "cheap" adapter not work well or something?

I can't imagine what the problem would be with a cheap one. I know what you're talking about, I've seen an IBM one for over $40! I don't think it is anything more than some wires connected together.
