3.0 out of 5 stars Gestures are handy on Windows 7, Works Great, But Needs A Few Tweaks.
By J. T. on April 1, 2012
I really do like this track pad. The gestures for Windows 7 work accurately and consistently for me. It took me a few days to get used to it, but once I did I really enjoy using it and find it highly functional. So much so that I returned the [[ASIN:B006MBP7T0 Logitech Touch Mouse (910-002666)]] I reviewed a few days ago. This Touchpad is cheaper, has a more advanced slew of touch motions and doesn't move around my small work space like the M600 did. That mouse is nice as well, but as of this writing it is twice as much as the Touchpad with only two real gestures. The Touchpad is more dynamic and cost effective. There was a definite difference in feel between the touch motions between the mouse and touch pad: the Touchpad feels more precise when scrolling up and down, and seems to translate the touch commands to the screen slightly better than the M600 did.

The device, while being plastic, looks nice and modern. The touch surface is a slightly textured plastic, but my fingers slide across it with no problems at all. By contrast, the M600 had a clear plastic touch surface that, after some usage, built up a sticky feeling to it, causing 'finger drag'. The Touchpad has two large piano-black buttons at the bottom that gather fingerprints quite easily, though I only use the right-click. In between the two buttons is an LED power/low battery light that turns off in just a few seconds of turning the unit on. The touch responses are accurate in the applications I have used them in: I can highlight sections of a paper in Word and move it with ease (two taps, while holding the second tap and dragging the cursor along the text gets the job done). I have learned to make sure that I totally lift my finger up after a single tap before swiping with the same finger because if done too quickly, it thinks you want to highlight something when you don't. In writing that all sounds like it would be a deal breaker, but in practice, it is a very minimal effort to avoid this situation, and you quickly learn to do so unconsciously. The remedy sounds like one would really have to slow their motions down, but that isn't the case. I find I can still navigate quite quickly with the Touhpad.

Where it needs to be tweaked is in the software department. I'm no computer expert, but I would think that an update to either SetPoint or the Touchpad firmware would allow for more gestures to be used. I'd really like to see some type of right click enabled on this device; perhaps a tap with two fingers or something. It breaks the flow of things to have to move your hand (or as I do, curl your knuckle under) and tap the right-click button. It works, but seems odd given that most of your time on this is otherwise going to be spent on the track pad portion. Pinch and zoom don't interest me personally, but so many people wish it to be present on the Touchpad, Logitech would be wise to make it happen. Again, I can't imagine that would be a huge deal to give us in an update of some sort, but we'll see what happens down the line.

My only real and true grievance with this device is with the lack of delineation between touchable and non-touchable surface area. A mouse/trackball/trackpad should be a fairly unconscious extension of the user's arm. One shouldn't have to glance down to see where their fingers are placed. The experience should be intuitive. And here Logitech made a very, very simple mistake (its kind of mind-boggling actually): There is no difference in texture or level between the active 'usable' portion and the borders. It is all one piece of plastic that is the same texture, color, and level. There are four little 'L'-shaped hash marks where the corners of the touch area are, but even after using this a few days, I still find I run off of the touch area. My 'office' if you can call it that is kind of dark, so I can't even see the marks most of the time. Nor should I even be looking there. It would have been (I assume) simple for Logitech to, perhaps, lower the touch surface so the user would know by tactile feel where he or she was at.

But all said, that is truly my biggest gripe with this device. I can perform all functions and gestures with no problems, but it is odd; its like they focused on the big stuff, and ignored the small yet important details.

Would I recommend this? Absolutely. I really do like it, and find it exceptionally enjoyable to use. SetPoint doesn't allow too much in terms of customization, but I guess I wasn't looking for it on this device because the default option are useful and helpful to me. You can change your cursor speeds, left or right hand usage, turn off some gestures, etc. Other reviewers have probably said this, but go to Logitech's web site and download their FlowScroll software - it makes scrolling and browsing smoother.

I guess those are my feelings on this device.

Good luck!

P.S.: A day after I wrote this I was messing with various methods of elevating my wrist. The Wireless Touchpad is a joy for me to use, but one's hand is slightly canted at an upward angle at the wrist. I found my old wrist rest, [[ASIN:B00006B8IP Fellowes Gel Flex Transparent Mini Wrist Rest (Blue Crystal)]], and it worked great. Up until now, I hated that rest, thinking it was too hard. But when used with the Logitech Touchpad, there has been a noticeable reduction in wrist fatigue (Although I think I paid $10-$15 for the rest locally!).

Update 7/7/12:

I was getting tired of running 'out of bounds' with this track pad because of no concrete changes in texture to tell me (without looking) that I had veered too far away. I took two strips of black electrical tape and cut the strips down the middle. I laid the strips in such a way as to link the little 'L'-shaped markings. It certainly doesn't look the prettiest, but it is a simple and effective solution to a situation Logitech should have seen coming a mile away.

Update: 12/4/2012:

I downgraded the number of stars due to Logitech's unwillingness to support more gestures for Windows 8. It does work in Windows 8, but possess none of the gestures that the new iteration has that would make sense on this pad as well. And, still, no two finger tap for right click.
