A shockingly horrible product
14 January 2014
Summary: I work professionally as an animator/video editor, and I bought this, because I am suffering from acute carpel tunnel/RSI. Believe it or not, this made my carpel tunnel twice as bad, after only one week of using it. 1: The battery life is laughably low. After a full night of charging, expect it to work for about four hours. 2: The surface of the pad is not as smooth as the description says.
Summary: I wanted to like this, I really did. My first complaint is that it requires a horrible driver package to get the full use from it. And like most stuff from Logitech, the drivers are horrible. The driver package was beating my SSD to death with millions of I/O ops per hour. Why in the world does a driver package need to make so many writes to disk???? Using the touchpad as not good. You have to press really hard to get the thing to "click".
Summary: This is a solid, compact piece of hardware; very well designed. It is just ruined by the quality of the software that makes it (barely) work. I have to manually launch the SetPoint software after boot to get the trackpad to work. Then, even when SetPoint is running and the device is paired, it constantly fails to work properly (tap-to-click, two-finger scroll, edge gestures, etc are not recognized) until I unpair, restart SetPoint, and re-pair the device.
Summary: I already returned this item once hoping that a replacement would work better. Unfortunately I ran into the same exact problems with a second unit. I cannot recommend this product to anyone. I am a software engineer and I spend 10-14 hours a day in front of a computer. I've had some trouble with pain in my right wrist, so I've been looking for a way to trade off between right and left handed controls.
Not a touch screen replacement and usb 3.0 problems
27 December 2012
Summary: I just received it today and I have to say this looks and feels like a quality product. Seems to work like a laptop touch pad. I kinda was hoping this would give me the touch screen feel not a touch pad feel. I connected it to my already installed Logitech Unified receiver with no problems at all. I gave it 4 stars because the price was to high. So far I really don't see this making the Windows 8 touch screen effects any better but time will tell.
Summary: This trackpad is so bad I went back to using my old mouse. Two finger scroll is nice but it scrolls on its own, all the time, with one finger. Even when barely touching the trackpad with one finger my browser windows start scrolling. So I end up chasing a button up/down the screen. Mouse movement is choppy for very fine detailed movements while using Photoshop or clicking a very a small icon. Forget trying to adjust the volume button in Youtube videos.
Summary: I have just purchased a WIN8 PC so I thought a Touchpad would help in navigating the WIN8 screen. How wrong can you be? For the first day it seems OK, not great, but I thought "It's just me, not used to it". But by the following day the screen pointer either malfunctioned or completely froze. First of all it would not activate menu buttons, or if it did so the drop down panel would not stay down long enough to select an item. Then the pointer froze competely.
