Thought I would pass on some info about these trac

Summary: I have been using Adesso ProCat 4 button touch-pad for about 26 years. I have the 4 button one and it has a Serial connection! If they ever stop putting a Serial connection on mother boards, I'm in trouble. Try the 2 button one 1st, then get you a 4 button with the larger pad area.
Summary: Obviously you are not getting an Apple touch pad for $30, so expectations should be checked. However, the touch pad is more sensitive than other Adesso pads on keyboards I have used and the buttons have a great feel to them.
Pros: Good sensitivity, up/down scroll works well, button click feel is excellent- not too hard or soft, pad responds well to tap-click on the pad and is not overly sensitive to accidental taps.
Cons: Device is thicker than it needs to be, the touch pad feels slightly grainy, the buttons are too close to the touch pad and can make hands cramp over time, no side/side scrolling.
Summary: Purchased this to replace a very old touchpad. New is smaller and more features. Only real downside is it is much lighter and whole touchpad tends to move while using it. I don't care for the standard mouse due to the amount of area they need to operate, therefore I use touchpads or trackballs.
Summary: This is my second Glidepoint touch pad and its just as nice as the first. For constant computer users the touch pad technology is a must, it provides much hand, finger and wrist relief. Navigating the device does take a little while but the learning curve is small and worthwhile.
Summary: I bought this with the intent of trying to give my 'mouse hand' a break. The shape of the mouse leaves my fingers in an unnatural angle after a while and my arthritis is certainly letting me know. I bought this pad as an attemps to make it better... and it works well.
Summary: I returned the Item because the buttons on the touch pad were dead and the install disk with the 'drivers' on it was Blank - Pad still did not work (dead buttons) even after I downloaded the drivers from adesso's web site - I've used Cirque touch pads for years and have never had any problems - I...
