Logitech T650 Review – Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad for Windows
27 March 2013
Excerpt: I was pretty enthusiastic when I heard about Logitech’s T650 Wireless Touchpad for Windows a while back. I’ve been a PC user for years, but I freely admit, I’ve been a little jealous of the quality of Apple’s touchpads. Finally, I thought, a PC touchpad that looks like it rivals Apple’s!
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.
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
Excerpt: Windows 8 is coming, and if Microsoft has its way, PC users will be transitioning seamlessly back and forth between their desktop and tablets like they’re in some kind of Ridley Scott daydream; that is, as long as they own the right accessories.
