Poor quality, does not hold up to daily use.

LARRY A., Newegg
11 October 2014
  • Summary: In short do not buy it, spend a bit more money and get a quality keyboard.
  • Pros: The touchpad is located in a good area where you can access it easily with your thumbs. It is not in a area that the palms would accidently hit it.
  • Cons: I have purchased two of these keyboards. Both have failed for the same reason. The touchpad switches fail after a period of time. The first keyboard failed just after a year and was out of warranty. The second failed after 10 months and I'm in the process of requesting an RMA.

User Review

Aunteenanny, Walmart

  • Summary: Just what I've been looking for in a keyboard. Very comfortable for someone with tendonitis and other repetitive hand strain injuries. This keyboard gives you the option of using a touch pad as well as using a mouse if you so choose.

Don't make the mistake I did

John E., Newegg
26 July 2012
  • Summary: I read reviews which said all that, and thought "Maybe they just got a bad unit" and order one anyway. Nope. Mine sucks too.
  • Pros: It fits the description accurately. The touchpad functions as expected.
  • Cons: The keyboard is terrible, as everyone else is saying. Some keys register inconsistently, the space bar rattles, and the whole thing feels mushy.

Terrible for typing

Robert S., Newegg
14 March 2012
  • Summary: The best keyboard/touchpad combo I have ever used was on a Dell inspiron notebook. Up/down and side/side scrolling on the touchpad, excellent key feel and spacing, and otherwise excellent ergonomics. The only equivalent stand alone keyboard I can find does not have track pad scrolling.
  • Pros: The touchpad is responsive and the up/down scroll feature works well. Multimedia buttons are useful.
  • Cons: I bought this keyboard to help with my chronic carpel tunnel that is inflamed by using a mouse too often. The touchpad helps with the CT, but the keys are so difficult to press that it actually brought about the CT in both hands instead of just my write. I type a lot during the day and the keyboa...

Good board, buggy pad

Guy T., Newegg
1 September 2011
  • Summary: As usual NewEgg customer service Rocks! I am considering the wireless ADESSO WKB-4400UB but because of the touchpad issue I am not sure about it. This was my first Adesso purchase.
  • Pros: Good board. Keys have good feel to them and are spaced properly. Touchpad has some great features using their software.
  • Cons: Media buttons are thin and have to be push down too far, I have big fingers and have a hard time with them. Touchpad is kinda buggy. It keeps randomly jumping to the bottom of the page and when hovering over something to view it the cursor keeps blinking and you have to keep it moving slightly to...

could be better

  • Summary: I bought this to replace a ps2 cirque keyboard/touchpad. I figured the adesso glidepoint would be the same as the cirque glidepoint. I was disappointed with the response of the touchpad. I just can't adjust it to respond as well as my old device.

OK for personal use. Not heavy duty!

  • Excerpt: I bought this keyboard for daily use in the office, because using the mouse was causing problems to my wrist. In general, I'm happy with it. Touch pad is great, better than the one on my laptop, keys are soft and quiet.
