Right click on Magic Trackpad
Hey guys. Just picked up a Magic Trackpad, and it's pretty good so far. My one problem is right clicks. Even though I enabled it in the preferences menu, pressing down on the bottom-right portion of the trackpad registers very rarely-- maybe 3 out of 10 times. I'm not a big fan of the "two finger secondary click" either, so that's not a legitimate solution for me. Do I have a faulty trackpad?

I was having a similar problem. I found that if I press very near to the very corner bottom right edge, I have less of a problem with the right-click.
If you look at the bottom of the trackpad, you'll notice the small white rubber encapsulated "bumps", That is actually where the trackpad "clicks", so if you get close to the bump on top, it will always work.
I think the right hand "clicker" may be less sensitive than the left one. No scientific proof, just my real world observations. Hope this helps.

I realise you've said that you're not a big fan of two finger secondary click, but I would still propose to give it a try. It is a very often used feature and taping the trackpad (NOT clicking - enable tap to click in settings) with two fingers is very easy.
I use the corners (click or tap) for other, less used functions. I noticed, that corner clicks can be hit-and-miss, while corner taps are more consistent.
Try installing the BTT (better touch tool) and playing with the settings.
These are my settings, if you need ideas:
