No two-finger-tap to right-click. Bloatware required.

Summary: No two-finger-tap to right-click. Bloatware required. I hear it doesn't do Windows 8 gesture support (and probably won't because Logitech wouldn't release a software update - prove me wrong). An improvement to the physical device would be a way to hold the touchpad surface at a slant to the left or right, for ergonomic comfort. This touchpad is fine for general computing, but for fine control the gesture recognition can get confused and drag when you didn't mean to drag.
Summary: I got this because I have wrist and thumb issues from an injury and thought the touchpad would be a more comfortable alternative to using a mouse all day. Unfortunately I don't think I'll be keeping this. The size and shape are convenient and comfortable, but the plastic surface is almost sticky when sliding your fingers across it, definitely not the same surface smoothness as my Microsoft touch mouse for swiping.
Do not listen to reviews on here saying it works in windows 8!!

Summary: this is REALLY bad advice. this touchpad is completely useless for windows 8 as it doesn't even support standard windows gestures. It certainly doesn't work with win8 other than basic logitech specific functionality. If you buy this expecting to be able to use it as a replacement for the gestures you could do with a touchscreen tablet, then seriously, don't bother. This has to be one of the worst logitech products ever, you cant even customize anything in the software.
Only Logitech Product That Has Been A Headache For Me
22 July 2012
Summary: This is the only Logitech product I've ever bottom that has been a complete headache. I own Logitech keyboards, mice and speakers and have never had a problem with any of them. This thing worked just long enough that I can now not send it back. All the drivers and software are up to date but the cursor will suddenly stop working for a few seconds, will lag or jump across the screen or the whole touchpad will not work at all.
Summary: This review is 60% for product, 40% for Amazon's service. I have orders this 2x and both times Amazon has sent me refurbished touchpads; they arrived with batteries already in them and the power switch in ON position. The first one was missing a transceiver! The products are obviously refurbished but being sold as new (Beware). Products are also being mailed from 'returns' center-sending me returns from others?!?.
Summary: Pros: - You can touch it, it will do things Cons: - Shares the same movement and scroll speed as your Logitech mouse - Rough feel to plastic - Few gestures recognized - Extremely limited (non-existent) customization (you can turn certain gestures off) - Impossible to feel edges of sensitive area Summary: I bought this as left-hand input device to increase my productivity as a software developer. It was not helpful.
Not fully Mac compatible, and the features for windows use are sub-par
14 March 2012
Summary: I bought this thinking I would use it as a track pad for when I'm using my external monitor on my Macbook Pro. Unfortunately this does not have the capabilities of being used separate of Logitech's own driver software which is not nearly as multi-touch capable as Apple's. Even on a windows PC the touchpad is very lack-luster offering very few multi-touch capabilities.
Summary: I should have seen this before buying it, but that doesn't take fault away from Logitech. BOTTOM LINE: There's a HUGE design blunder - there's no raised ridge around the Sensitive area of the Touchpad. So you won't feel when your finger goes past the sensitive area, causing you to lose your Drag, or Scroll, or whatever else you may be doing.
Summary: Logitech almost hit the mark. Great shape, great feel, well built and easy setup. Unfortunately, like most PC touchpads, they didn't get the surface right. I own a Macbook Pro and love the touchpad with its smooth, gliding surface. I have to use a PC laptop for work though, thus why I bought this, to try and mimic the Mac touchpad. The surface on this is textured, requiring a very light touch with ultra dry fingers.
