Summary: I am making the transition to a touch pad to save the knuckle on my rt index finger. Doc said it would help with the pain. It plugged in and my XP running desktop recognized it and all was well. I am not as deft using the pad as I was the mouse and have to be careful not to accidentally move or delete something because of finger drag. That's just me but something to be aware of.
Summary: This is a very nice product. I was hoping the touch area was larger or had swipe abilitly. I have two monitors. The small size of the touch area has me lifting my finger often to span the two monitors. I love the scroll area on the right of the pad. The software loaded without interaction from me. I recommend this product.
Summary: Using this with k120 Logitech keyboard, works very well. I place the touchpad in front of my keyboard, but that's up to you. Simply plug and play (the glidepoint software in not needed and it seems to lock up the computer so I removed it.) Click and drag don't work as well as a laptop keyboard, but it is still a great device (slightly textured surface touchpad) Tapping works fine as well as mouse functions as on a laptop, you can adjust the speed of the pointer as well...
Summary: I've been using touchpads as an alternative to a mouse for a long time because it helps me avoid the stress of locking my shoulder and wrist into one position (I usually hold my touchpad much like a console gamepad). The Browser Cat is one of the best touchpads I've used. It's responsive, compact, and lightweight. It's got a convenient little stand in the back that flips down to create a slight angle if you place the touchpad on a flat surface.
Summary: The Touchpad works on both windows and mac. It is very responsive to the touch. I bought this due to shoulder and wrist problems, and I must say that after using the touchpad for 2 days, my shoulder has felt much better. I like it because my hand is not moving to the right to grab the mouse. Much quicker than grabbing a mouse and clicking. I would highly recommend the touchpad. Only thing I would change is the thickness of the unit.
Summary: My Adesso Browser Cat just arrived and it took less than a minute to set it up and start using it. This was just what the doctor ordered. It's easy to use and easy on my hand. Also quite inexpensive.
Summary: I bought the Adesso Browser Cat (USB) as a supplement to my mouse. Believe it or not, I've been working so much lately that my 'mouse finger' is swollen and sore from all the clicking and scrolling. My hope was to alleviate the problem by switching to a smoother gliding motion on a trackpad. For what it's worth, the Browser Cat was a step in the right direction. I experienced far less discomfort while using the trackpad.
