This touchpad supports several gestures even on windows 7 and uses AA batteries.

Good trackpad. I've been using one of these for the last month on my Linux machine at work.

I would stay away from Buy it Love it, their customer service is appalling.
I bought three of these from them a while back, two had already been opened with visible signs of use (the battery isolator strip removed & fingermarks etc). They wanted me to cover return costs when the goods were not as described, suggesting they were sealed when they were dispatched. Fortunately, Amazon stepped in and fixed things.

They were £12.99 when I bought them, good bit of kit though.

Yep, buttons at the bottom.

I didn't really get on with mine - I was maybe a bit spoiled as I had a Macbook Pro in work and it's trackpad is in another league.

Have one of these and works really well with Windows 8/8.1 and is pretty good with 7 as well.

Careful - don't be conned into buying this thinking it will transform your use of Windows 8's touch interface. This is an old and obsolete model which has a very small touch area (within the etched corners if you look closely at the picture) and it does not support the full set of Windows 8 swipes and gestures. You'll find it very annoying to use as your main control device. Logitech didn't update the drivers for Windows 8 because they want you to buy the newer T650 which has a much larger trackpad and was specifically designed for Win 8 touch gestures. That's why these are being sold off cheap by end of line clearance houses.

It's pretty good for other versions of Windows though. I have both this and the newer trackpad and even though the newer one is much better quality, has larger surface area and supports Win8 gestures (and is a lot more expensive), this one is actually very good with XP and Win7 - arguably better.

The gesture set that it supports is actually pretty well thought out and I prefer it to the Win8 one, though obviously the Win8 gestures will be the standard going onwards.

Gotta agree with Northerner here..

These are utter garbage if you use Windows 8. I sent both the ones I bought back. I thought the first was faulty.. But it turns out they just don't support windows 8 gestures.

Might be OK if you never used a device as Microsoft intended, but if you are used to the proper gestures from using a w8 tablet or touch screen, it will drive you mad.

The T650 is much better in Win 8.
