Hm, not bad. I just received the Logitech U650 for xmas (still haven't opened w/ gift receipt). I wonder which is better. I can't find a whole lot of reviews for this unit.

EDIT: Actually, I think I'll keep my Logitech. Reviews on Dell website ranges from poor to "meh": http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&...

Question, why does someone need this?

faw169 said:   Question, why does someone need this? For me, I want to minimize my mouse usage. I've been using it long enough that my wrist is definitely showing early signs of repetitive-stress injury. In the past, I've tried a number of alternatives: trackballs, vertical mouse, penclic mouse, regular laptop trackpads, etc. None of them gave me the comfort, ease-of-use and functionality of a multi-button mouse like my beloved Logitech Performance MX mouse.

At work, I use a mac and I started using the Apple MagicTrackpad. As much as I dislike most Apple products, that thing is amazing. Almost as accurate as a mouse and the multitouch gestures give you a lot of added functionality (scroll up/down/left right, forward/back page, zoom, etc.) and it's much easier on my wrist. I still keep a regular mouse around for when I need to do work that requires precision (mostly graphics creation), but I use the MagicTrackpad 95%+ of the time. I've been doing this for about 6 months and my wrist is so much happier.

At home, I have a windows machine and I've been wanting to get something similar to the MagicTrackpad but so far there hasn't been a good alternative. The magictrackpad isn't all that useful in windows because Apple won't make a driver for it and the multitouch gestures don't work. With the launch of Win8 and the introduction of multitouch gestures, a number of companies introduced the magictrackpad-alternatives for PC. This is one of them. I opted for the Logitech U650 - most of the reviews I've read has said that it's the closest thing to the magictrackpad. I hope they're right.

Did you mean T650? Or is it a different brand than Logitech? The U650 is a TV remote...

Thanks for sharing. I do have a cold finger problem. Maybe I should try it with company dollar.

Would I benefit from the multitouch gestures of T650 if I am on Windows 7? I bought a latpop and desktop this holiday, both of them came with Windows 8 but I downgraded them to Windows 7...

I haven't tried, but I think so: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/mice-pointers/articles/win7-t650-g...

They need to make one of these with a trackball component so you can get the benefits of the pad along with the precision and mobility of the trackball.
