Andy Bryant posted this hands-on review of the Logitech T650 Wireless Touch pad, which brings support for Windows 8 gestures to desktops and laptops which lack multi-touch touchpads.
The device appears to work very well, and is very responsive, but has a few issues, including some ergonomics issues and flaws in multi-monitor support.
If you’re used to using a touchpad on a laptop, and are migrating to Windows 8 on a single-screen non-touch PC, then I’d say unreservedly yes. The benefits you get from gestures under Win8 outweigh the complexity of right-click drag on the desktop.
If you’re using a multiple-monitor setup, it does work, but you just won’t gain quite as much primarily because Microsoft hasn’t quite optimized the interaction between the Win8 mode, and desktop mode across both screens. That said, it is quite usable – and I’m going to continue using mine on my home PC.
The wireless pad is $85.99 and can be found at Amazon here.
