Thought I would pass on some info about these trac


I have been using Adesso ProCat 4 button touch-pad for about 26 years. I have the 4 button one and it has a Serial connection! If they ever stop putting a Serial connection on mother boards, I'm in trouble. Try the 2 button one 1st, then get you a 4...

Just as described


Purchased this to replace a very old touchpad. New is smaller and more features. Only real downside is it is much lighter and whole touchpad tends to move while using it. I don't care for the standard mouse due to the amount of area they need to...

WOW !!! -------I have to comment


This is the only computer appliance I've had and still use exclusively for over 9 years. The thing won't die or falter. It has a sequential connection which, as I upgraded my computer, I had to apply a ps2 interface cable. I use the mouse software that...
