I was so disappointed I was about to return it. The issue was clearly a 'clearance' issue inside the tray along the bottom edge of the tray on the TrackPad side. So I was confident I could fix it. I just took out my exacto knife and carefully trimmed plastic away inside the tray until the TrackPad had the space to click and return to the non-clicked position. It took a few trims and tries but it works every time now and you would have to look very close to see the trim work.
I'm NOT saying this makes the accessory acceptable. It should not be up to the customer to modify a product that should work out of the box. Had they put more time into testing and had tighter controls on manufacturing with maybe a less tight fix for the TrackPad it would be an awesome product. For now it is just acceptable if you want to go to the effort to make it work.
Hope this helps some of you that kept the product.
Let me explain...
The idea is a great one, but the problem is the click functionality of the Magic trackpad base, it does not work when sitting in the Clique. Or rather it works once and then is stuck in that position. Maybe I am missing something, like a set of instructions that address this issue, but sadly there were none in the wonderful packaging that this item came in.
Unfortunately, looks are not able to overcome this design flaw and I will be returning said item unless I can get a major assist from the good people at Henge Docks.
Changing to the tap function is not useful as the other functions change and dragging and dropping is easiest with the click feature of the trackpad. Love the trackpad the way it is, why should I change my habits to conform to a poorly designed product.... Work-arounds are not what most people are looking for, and being up front would hurt sales. This is not an expensive item and most people will not return because it is inconvenient. I don't have a vendetta against the Henge Docks, but I do read reviews when shopping and like them to be accurate.
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT based on the review of someone that works for the company with cheery things to say about everything the company does, especially when the reviewer discredits the other reviewers that have had real experiences that were less than rosy.
Just keeping things real, I wanted to love this product but it did not live up to expectations
When the trackpad is inserted, it will get stuck in the down-clicked state, which means you have to remove it and put it back in. It will work for about 8 clicks before getting stuck again.
When I finally broke down and e-mailed support, they e-mailed me a PDF document advising me to rub the inside edges of the trackpad tray with a hard tool. The idea is that the sloppy mold lines left on the plastic will be removed or rubbed down, preventing the trackpad from getting trapped. This works to a degree, but not very well.
I really need to bust out my dremel and remove the extra plastic if I want to continue using it. Which is pretty crazy.
Henge Docks is very aware of this issue, so I'm really surprised that they're not taking steps to ensure new Cliques aren't shipping to customers in this condition.
I'm not sure if it's the poor fit, or another issue entirely, but my trackpad will also randomly lose its bluetooth connection to my computer while in the Clique, and only while it's in the Clique. I've checked to make sure the battery port is screwed all the way shut, but I suspect the plastic that contacts the trackpad power button is also made with a poor tolerance, and it's holding the power button in enough to cause it to turn on and off while I type or use the trackpad.
As it ships, the Clique is worse than disappointing, it makes using your trackpad unreliable or at worst impossible. There's no reason to ship them to customers with these defects.
