Cheap Quality – Replacement TrackPoint Red Cap for IBM Laptops Reviews

posted by UpIn5mOk3 on 07/31/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
-Fits my Thinkpad -Iconic red color -Felt genuine as I was taking it out of the bag -Cheap
Cons:
I don't normally review items since I rarely have a problem with them. But I've been using this Trackpoint for ~2.5 days now, and 25% of the textured surface came off. I'm on my laptop a lot, but this is absurb. If you are a TrackPoint user, you know that when a cap gets old, he starts wearing down and becoming smooth. Not this one. It seems like the textured surface and the inner part are two pieces, causes the texture to literally peel off as I use it. This is going to bother me until I can source some OEM ones soon as I'm currently overseas.
Other:
I wouldn't bother buying this at all...
Bottomline:
Save your $1.22.
