For Use By Your Second Hand


Even though I went to 3D Navigator for doing a lot of those mouse type functions, I still use this device a lot and never abandoned it altogether, and would feel a real loss if I didn't have it. I think it is especially useful where you need to press...

I got this a few years ago to relieve some strain on my right hand from overuse of the mouse in Sketchup doing repetitive work for hours at a stretch, by having a mouse type device that I could use with my left hand

I got away from the type of use I originally intended it for, which is scrolling, and it is mostly to do with it not being very compatible with SketchUp which is probably a bit finicky about a level of continuity in order to maintain a hold on a pointer

Long time user


Windows finally developed an OS that doesn't like my SERIAL Smart Cat... so time to replace with the USB version. Awesome device. Will continue to use.

BEWARE - Can Only Program 3 Buttons


Works great if you only need 3 buttons... I was really looking for four buttons so that I could program Page Up/Page Down for Powerpoint Operation.

The touchpad and three buttons work well

The device is advertised with 4 buttons, however you can only program 3 buttons with the utility/driver for this device

Great touch pad


As a person who likes a touch pad better than a mouse, I found this a good value. It works better than many laptop touch pads.

Save urslf from soreness.


all is A-OK...cannot go wrong in owning one. A little bit slower that a pc mouse...probable not a good unit for gaming. For photoshop work it is just fine. Turn it on the verticle & work in neutral pronation. WOW

Sensitive...does require some thought and subsequent practice

Grandmas favorite


Got this for my grandmother who has difficulty with her hands. She finds it easy to use and very responsive. The mouse has many almost to many settings but you can set it up to your liking.

Great for carpel tunnel sufferers


I have used all the ergonomic mouse products. They helped, however the touchpad is the best solution I have found todate. I combined it with the Allsop Comfort Beads Ergonomic Wrist rest. I would recommend this product highly.

Adesso SmartCat 4 Button USB Touchpad (Black)  GP-410UB


I have one of the first Cirque touch pads of this type. It is a wonderful device, and I think it should replace the mouse, in fact I do not know why it has not. The only reason I am in the market for a new one, is the fact that after 20 years with my...
