Great hardware, terrible software
7 August 2013
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 use a touchpad on my mac as well as the pad built in to my win8 machine. i much prefer them to mice. i figured this one would be the same except maybe a couple different gestures. first of all, it's really buggy. i should have known when it locked up my computer during install. twice. then, once it actually completed the install, several gestures simply didn't work. it reset / reorganized / changed my preferences on my browser settings, desktop and other apps.
Summary: I bought this to kinda emulate the feel of the macintosh touchpad on my windows 8 PC. For most of the task, like navigating the os and using internet explorer, it work just fine, but there is no scolling and zoom function in chrome and firefox, it work on the first page but as soon as you enter text or change tab, the scrolling and zooming stop working. Something to do with the touchpad being seen as a touchscreen instead of a mouse (so they say on some forums).
Summary: I purchased the T650 with high expectations after having used the Apple Magic Touchpad. While the specs on paper are similar, its functionality is not. In particular,the Logitech Touchpad is not sufficiently responsive to taps. I frequently have to resort to "clicks". This becomes ergonomically tiring by the end of the day. Without looking, too frequently I missed the right lower corner for the right mouse button response.
Summary: Installed fine and Windows 8 recognizes it. Extremely unresponsive and difficult to use. I printed a page from the help screens so I could begin to master the Windows 8 multi-finger touch commands. They are so context specific that I found myself stroking away at the pad and getting erroneous results. Another irritant is the errors that pile up in the Event-Viewer.
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.
Summary: Logitech is a great company but this Touchpad works sometimes and trying to copy and paste is almost impossible to do. I've never returned anything to Best Buy but I did this item. They need to upgrade the software and get the bugs out of it and once that is done I will buy another one.
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 pad is so bad that I returned it. I did my best to get used to it, but there was no way I could get over the inconvenience of needing to repeat gestures because it does not do what it was supposed to. Right click is a pain and so is left click when you haver to drag in Windows 8 from the top to the bottom of the screen in order to close an app. It only works on hard surfaces and cant be used with a padded mouse pad; this makes my hand fatigue.
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.
