In practice the touch pad is frustrating to use, alternating between too twitchy and unresponsive. The clicker is denuded of most buttons, relegating the number pad to a kludgy onscreen version and eliminating the Menu key altogether. Lack of buttons also necessitated selecting from annoying onscreen mini menus for things as basic as Pause, Menu and Chapter Skip. In short, I'm not a fan, and defaulted to using the standard clicker when I could. For using the browser, the 'pad is better than gesture control, but not by much.
