Summary: 1. Download the firmware file 2. Install Unifying software 3. Make sure the T650 is paired to computer by moving mouse 4. Run the firmware file (there is no confirmation of completion) 5. Charge the T650 until the green light stops blinking 6. DISCONNECT USB CABLE from the T650 and computer 7.
Pros: Large, with rechargeable battery, gestures. This is a great way to relieve pressure on your fingers from using a normal mouse. Also, if you're into Win 8 gestures.
Cons: You have to update the firmware to make it work like a normal trackpad, like on a laptop. That isn't so bad, the PROBLEM is that the LINK for "firmware update instructions" on the Logitech website is broken.
Pros: - Firmware and Logitech software will correct the absence of tap-to-click - Updates add 2finger-tap-to-right click - Rechargeable battery - Off switch to save battery life - Gestures are cool in win8
Cons: - Had to update right out of the box (feet buttons are inadequate.)
Excerpt: I bought the Touchpad T650 to use with my desktop PC at home, because heavy use of a conventional wireless mouse was tiring my arms and joints damaged due to arthritis. It radically reduces the small back-and-forth motions that aggravate my condition.
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.
Summary: i'd still buy it again... but fluidity was a big selling point, and this device seems to be more of a workaround in the sense that most of the gestures don't work as well as they do on my Surface RT.
Pros: -clean design -nice clicks -supports lots of functions in Windows 8/8.1 that standard mice don't -good battery life -descent price. found it on an auction site brand new for around $30.
Cons: -doesn't work exactly like a mac... -smooth scroll/zoom aren't utilized for all programs. ie. looks very fluent in Explorer but not in Chrome -limited customizability. user can only enable/disable preset gestures rather than create new ones.
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).
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.
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.
