It is okay

FESTER, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: Great price in bundling up mouse and keyboard together. I had to plug in old keyboard and this keyboard to set up on my XP. After setting up, keyboard is recognized without any problem. Glidepoint software does not recognize integrated touchpad, so I could not customize the buttons, corner tap or gestures. There is no help on Adesso website for this problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled Glidepoint and then gave up.

Gives me what I need

  • Summary: I wanted both a numberpad and an off-centre touchpad for data entry on my laptop. This was the only keyboard offering both those. It has worked fine so far (2 weeks). Zero hassle instal. Ergonomics are not great, but that's partly because I am not used to it yet and I often switch back to the laptop keyboard. Works as promised.

  • Summary: hooked this up to a computer with the TV so the missus could have a computer with a 40" screen (Because that's what you need to use itunes and facebook, amirite?) anyhow, no fancy drivers, all plug and play with windows 7.
  • Pros: built in touch pad
  • Cons: none

  • Summary: the soft touch keys and the size were very nice. the touchpad however was erratic, would work backwards sometimes all on its own. sometimes it would skip all over the place. i returned it for a full refund.

Angry with Sale

Keyboard hunter, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I ordered this product under the impression that it was wireless. It arrived very quickly which is a plus, however I would not have bought the product had I known it was wired because there are multiple cheaper products on the market in a wired sense. I am very unhappy with the purchase as I feel the ad was misleading. But again, on a good note, there was no software or learning curve.
  • Pros: Highly Compatible, Reliable Performance
  • Cons: Not wireless

Touchpad issues

  • Summary: Used this keyboard with Windows 7 34 bit. The touchpad stops working constantly and you have to unplug and replug keyboard. Nice keyboard, but not worth the constant hassles.

Serviceable in Windows 7 - Permanent Vista users stay away!

  • Summary: The biggest issue for me was the huge flip-flop between Vista and Windows 7 the bad start leaving too bad a taste in my mouth to warm up to it just yet. In Vista, it was particularly awful trying to set up because you couldnt hot-swap it wouldnt respond if you tried and you could barely start Windows with it because the output initially was just plain randomized gibberish - I had to hook up my wireless mouse and open the on-screen keyboard just to log in and launch the...
  • Pros: Keyboard is fairly light, thin, and aesthetically neutral - nice looking, but not too flashy. I am still getting used to the arrow keys being displaced as a result beneath the right Shift key, but all in all, I am a huge fan of the placement of the touch-pad - this board knows/shows the value of being able to hit the Enter key while still mousing with the ring finger. Soft and quiet keys are a huge plus with this board - I am used to loud keys that need to be smacked ...
  • Cons: Touch-pad is definitely just a tad smaller than it really should be for this size of a keyboard. Also, the vertical scroll on the right side of it definitely takes a little more patience than the same feature on more modern laptop PC touch-pads - do not expect an HP / Altec Lansing equivalent because you simply dont get that here. Has a function key but has no display extender toggle key assigned, which is definitely one of the bigger inconveniences for me with my mul...

  • Summary: When I first used this on my 64 bit Version 7 system it worked well and the keys are well placed and the compact design works well on the desktop. However at times trying to step between open programs using the alt tab. At times my spreadsheet program could not be scrolled through, forcing me to exit program and unplug the keyboard.

  • Summary: I was tired of constantly reaching for my mouse and was actually getting a sore shoulder. After looking online for either a touchpad keyboard or a trackball keyboard, I decided on the Adesso SofTouch Keyboard. I ordered it one day and it arrived the next day from WalMart! It is more than I expected. The keys are so quiet and soft to press.
