Adesso Easy Cat 2-Button USB Glidepoint Touchpad (Black)

You Pay: $38.24

The Easy Cat 2-Button USB Glidepoint Touchpad from Adesso is a USB trackpad that is compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems. The trackpad serves as an alternative to a traditional mouse for pointing operations. It is perfect for anyone who would like to use a notebook-style trackpad on a desktop computer.

Tap Zones
The trackpad features tap zones for left and right click operations. This allows you to right click via tapping, a feature that is not often found on trackpads.
File Dragging and Scrolling
You'll be able to double tap an item to select it for drag and drop operations. This allows you to drag files from one folder to another without giving your fingers an intense workout. The trackpad can also be used to scroll through documents via the vertical scrolling area on its right edge.
GlideExtend
The GlideExtend function allows you to continue moving the computer cursor after your finger has reached the edge of the trackpad.
USB Interface
The trackpad can be connected to any computer with the standard USB interface, making it easy to attach to almost any computer.

            Comments about Adesso Easy Cat 2-Button USB Glidepoint Touchpad (Black):

            I bought it to replace the use of a mouse at the office. I started to have a strange pain in the shoulder and every back and forth between keyboard and mouse was painful.
            I also replaced my keyboard with the Microsoft Natural Keyboard Elite. I glued the touchpad on the palm rest of the keyboard and I no longer need to lift my hands from the rest pad while tapping or using the touchpad.

            The combination Microsoft keyboard elite + this touchpad is just perfect for me - having both for 2 weeks now!!!

            The only complain I have is that the software of the Glidepoint doesn't work with my Windows 7. I tried everything and when the Adesso tech support answered "it does that from time to time on Win7" I understood that that I have to stop hopping to make it work.
            The glidepoint works just grate with no drivers but only the vertical scroll is available. You can adjust the sensitivity through the windows mouse settings.
            I don't really miss any extra functions from the unstable driver, it's just a little frustrating.

            Beware I tried first the nice-looking Tru-Form Pro Contoured Ergonomic Keyboard with Built-In Touchpad and Hot Keys from Adesso. The keyboard arrived dead. After reading some on-line reviews I understood that I'm not an exception.

            Comments about Adesso Easy Cat 2-Button USB Glidepoint Touchpad (Black):

            My nephew says that the Glidepoint Touchpad is easy to use, because of the newer smaller size he has to pick up the device to use it since he does not use a desk like the rest of us. The first Glidepoint Touchpad that we used was much larger and he did not have to pick it up in order to stabilize the unit while using it. I was a little taken back myself when I opened up the package and saw how small the unit was.

              This product is small, compact and takes no integration as you just plug it in. It is durable and we use this in a rugged environment which it has done well with no apparent problems in material or functionality.

                  I have polyneropathy. My hands have very little feeling. It is hard for me to use a mouse. This touchpad allows me to perform cursor manipulation equal to a mouse. One partulicar feature, double-click pad area, provides this pad equal operation to that of a mouse.

                  Windows XP allowed immediate connection.

                  touchpad sensing and scrolls are good.
                  But it's little bit small and sometimes it's moving when I dragging or scrolling on the touch pad..
                  I believe it need some sticky thing to fix it a place
