Summary: Logitech's Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 helps you wield Windows 8 like a boss, even if you don't have a touchscreen monitor. In fact, it can save you from purchasing one or having to upgrade your PC (if, for example, you own an all-in-one with a non-touch display) by giving you access to the same gestures and swipe controls regardless of whether you own a touch-capable monitor or not.
Pros: Silky Smooth Operation:, Size Matters:, Resists Fingerprints:, It's All About the Gestures:
Summary: Logitech has brought to the market the Touchpad T650, as a means of providing relief to users of Windows 8 who do not have touchscreens. We got ourselves a unit to see whether it actually does provide any relief or if it falls short like almost every other touchpad found on laptops.
Pros: Extremely well designed, Easy to use, Works flawlessly with gestures
Cons: Hard to select lines of text using the touchpad
Summary: The Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 makes it easy to add a standalone touch pad to your Windows 8 tablet or desktop, but mimicking touch-screen gestures is still an imperfect experience.
Cons: The charging cable and USB receiver are extra parts to deal with, and Mac functionality is severely limited.
Summary: The Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 ($59.59) is an excellent pointing device, whether you own a laptop or desktop PC. This peripheral's large dimensions and glass surface make it very comfortable to use, and the gesture support works well. Overall, the T650 is a terrific companion for Windows 8 users.
Pros: Significantly larger than the average touchpad, Smooth comfortable surface, Easy setup, Most gestures work very well
Conclusion: I was impressed with the performance of the T650 Wireless Touchpad. From the precision of the tracking to the range of the wireless connection and lack of interference, Logitech certainly brings their thirty years of expertise to this peripheral as well. All of the gestures I tried on both Windows 8 and 7 detected and executed without a problem. It's hard to comment about the appearance of a touchpad.
Pros: Allows you to perform many Windows shortcuts from one device, Increases ability to navigate through the Windows desktop over a regular pointing device, Good build quality, pleasing touch surface, Great tracking/sensitivity, battery life, wireless range
Cons: Clicking and dragging still a difficult operation to perform on a touchpad, Can't program gestures to perform custom functions, Won't completely replace a mouse for precise work
