Touch Pad

Product Description

The black, USB, Cirque Easy Cat® touchpad makes it easier and more comfortable than ever to control your computer. To perform basic mouse functions, simply glide your finger over the smooth surface of the Cirque Easy Cat® to point, then tap on the pad or press on the buttons to click. Both 'left' and 'right' click functions can be activated by tapping on designated areas of the pad. It's easy to detect the 'right' click area of the pad thanks to the subtle change of pad texture and color. Double-tap and hold your finger on the pad, or hold the left button as your finger glides, to grab, drag and highlight any item on-screen. Activate vertical scroll by simply gliding a finger along the right edge of the touchpad. The GlideExtend® edge extending feature makes it easy to keep moving the cursor after you've run into the touchpad's edge. The Cirque Easy Cat® works 'out of the box' with all native Microsoft Windows® operating systems; no drivers required.

4.0 out of 5 stars little wonder 30 Aug 2011
(This review is similar to one I posted for the larger model, since the same concerns apply.)

I can remember when you could walk into a computer retailer and buy a touchpad. Now they are rarer than hen's teeth -- which is an enormous disservice to the millions of people who use computers. Why?

Mice will kill you.

A mouse puts the hand at a poor posture and requires fine motor movements that can result in tendinitis and repetitive strain injury. I know this from sad experience. Later I worked for a while as an adaptive devices consultant, in which capacity I learned exactly how poorly designed many devices we take for granted really are. Scissors. Can openers. Door handles. And, yes, computer keyboards and mice.

You might scoff or even laugh. Until it happens to you!

A touchpad on a laptop is also a horrible thing, since you have to bend your wrists, elbows and shoulders at awkward angles. But a touchpad on a cable you can move around is ideal. If you get tired of using it in one position, simply move it to another. Alternate hands. Use it in your lap. Tap to click or press the button to click - it's your choice. Use it standing up when giving a presentation -- you will get a lot of attention!

I own at least two at any given time -- one for home and one for when I am on the road. Sometimes a third to lend to a friend. Not everyone takes to them, but that is usually because they don't give themselves time to get acclimatised. Once I convert a friend to one of these they never look back. Spend what you have to, but replace your mouse. A touchpad lasts forever, or at least until a cat eats the cable. I have bought four in twenty years and only one has failed.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Tom has the beating of Jerry 14 Feb 2011
I bought this touchpad for my wife, who had been recommended it by a tutor because she has problems using a mouse. I attached it to our desk top pc and found that it was more or less instantly usable.

I had to practice for quite a while before I could use it satisfactorily. The main problem was that it is better than the touch pad on our HP laptop. Better in that the lightest touch performs the desired action. I spent a morning banging away on it before I learnt to be more delicate in my finger work.

Do I still have any problems with it? One or two small ones. The first is that when I use the touch pad to pull down the scroll bar I find that I haven't disengaged it when I move away from the bar and consequently send it shooting back to where it was before I started. I just have to remember to give it a final tap when I reach the destination and that problem will be solved. A second small difficulty is that I have some difficulty in putting the insertion point exactly where I want it. Easy enough to correct - I get it to within a letter or two of where I want it and fine tune using the arrow keys. I have the same problem in always hitting the correct key on a musical keyboard.... And, finally, using the touch pad, I can't yet quite reach my times using a mouse on Solitaire. But I'm getting there.

I am converted - it's better than a mouse, and it will be perfect when I become perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cirque Easy Cat Glidepoint Touchpad, Black, USB 22 Mar 2010
this works on the same principle as the touchpad on a laptop computer. the advantage is that it can be placed where you want or need it, this is especially useful for anyone with movement problems. as a disabled person myself i find it is so easy to use only requiring the movement of one finger.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works OK, but ... 17 Oct 2011
By Marian
I bought this product because I started having a bit of problem with hand when I use mouse for long period of time.

It works quite good even without drivers, which you have to download from the internet by the way. That's good because you can take it to your friend's PC, work or wherever. But, off course, you can't use all functions.

I have problem with two 2 fingers and 3 fingers gestures. Rotation using 2 fingers work, but with bit of a fight. It's not easy to use. Zoom works surprisingly fine. Rotation works too. But I don't have luck with pan/scroll using 2 fingers. However, you can still use areas allocated for that - right side and bottom, which works fine with a bit of practice. And I have absolutely no luck with 3 fingers flick gestures, even though I successfully minimised all programs one time.

Although it has some bugs, I would say that it is worth the money I paid. You can use touchpad and mouse at the same time. Worked even with old game I tried. I like adventure games so I think it will also work good with them.

I bought this for my work place, it is not bad but a little too small which makes it rather difficult to use. Arrived on time and well packed.

Good product. Reliable over time. Stable. Still function. I pathologist and I use with children who love. Maybe I'll try the greatest.
