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! Thankfully it does live up to that impression.
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
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. For those unfamiliar with Windows 8, the traditional desktop experience you know and love is still present — a comforting crutch — but it’s buried underneath a new navigation layer akin to the tiles found on the sibling Windows...
Conclusion: Windows 8 works really well without the touch stuff, but if you feel like you're missing out, the T650 is just about the best solution we've seen. Better than all the touch mice that have started to appear on the market and very nearly as good as a touchscreen. The price is arguably a bit steep. We aren't that impressed by the scroll speed either and the clicking can be a little laboured too - especially right click, which can take an age to find.
Pros: Rechargeable, stylish, great touch surface,
Cons: You will waste time doing things you didn't want to, expensive, not fast enough at scrolling,

Excerpt: Logitech is under no illusions about its place in the world of technology. Windows 8 has caused a shift in the computer landscape and there's a new experience ready for the right peripherals to augment it. There are two new conundrums to address. The first is the existence of a dual interface system with the traditional Windows 8 desktop at loggerheads with the Modern UI, both in terms of look and functionality.
