Excerpt: I bought this because I like Windows 8 gestures but they're easier with a touchpad than with a mouse. It works well but not perfectly; sometimes it will not double click well without strong taps or taps at the lower left corner. However, it does works really well to click or right click by lightly tapping the pad. It's handy that it's wireless and that you can use it while it's charging.
Summary: I bought this on sale from Walmart for a little more than half the price it normally is and it's a great value. It hooked up with my Windows 8 computer just fine. My only problem is that sometime the touchpad doesn't register my click. However if I push down on the lower left corner for my click the whole thing resets and starts working fine.
Summary: I like this trackpad, it has a good solid feel to it. Strangely, it seems to need to be on a hard surface to feel the button press action (sometimes I would rather use it in my lap to reduce arm strain). I would like to see more gestures added as standard, and would love for Logitech to come up with a more natural way of handling click-to-highlight and similar actions. It's a bit hard to do that, and I often end up using the shift key to make that work.
Summary: I just started using this today, and I can finally stop searching for an alternative to the mouse. Using a mouse causes my hand to get stiff over time, so I've tried various alternatives, and they've all failed until now. I tried the joystick-shaped mouse from 3M, the Bamboo tablet, etc, and none of them had enough precision for productive work. This unit is very precise, and has the correct dynamics to allow me to quickly and precisely navigate two large screens.
Summary: I really like this touchpad. It has great gesture features designed specifically for Windows 8. I would say it is especially useful when you are using windows 8 without a touchscreen because the gestures make it easier to get around than a mouse would being that this OS is a more touch friendly OS. The design is really sleek and stylish but does tend to look stained from the oil/grease from your fingers after being lightly used.
Summary: The light touch taps & gestures take a little getting used to, but less strain than even the trackball I've been using for years. The only thing I don't love is running out of trackpad real estate dragging something across my monitor. I like to switch between right & left hands & there's no fuss changing the button configuration. It's very portable & really like the wireless for remote control & reducing [physical] desktop clutter.
Summary: Trackpad hardware is just great: right size, right feel, rechargeable battery. Synced with Unifying receiver on the first try without a hitch. And has better range than my (MS) wireless keyboard. The unifying software cost this review one star. It works as advertised for the gestures it claims to support, and that provides me enough functionality to get the most out of Windows 8. I was able to master it with a bit of practice.
