Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 Review
17 April 2014
Summary: The T400 is Logitech's entry level touch zone mouse but it sure doesn't act that way. It makes the Windows 8 experience so much more bearable if you don't have a touch screen. The price isn't bad either, because you can find it online for around $50. The touch zone is definitely the highlight of the mouse as there is no longer a scroll wheel. As mentioned earlier, it is quiet, fluid, and accurate. We recommend this mouse for anyone with a Windows 8 laptop or desktop.
Pros: Installation:, Windows 8 Shortcut:, Quiet Scrolling:
Summary: If you’re really into everything that Windows 8 can do, apps included, the T400 isn’t the most robust option out there. But, if you use a few apps casually and mainly stick to the desktop, the T400 is just right – it spares you from unnecessary features that could potentially hinder you from doing what you want to do, as happens a lot of the time with Windows 8 touch pads or touch mice.
Pros: Well-tuned touch zone doesn’t do too much, but what it does, it does well. Comfortable to use most of the time. Lightweight and easy to pack. Smooth Scrolling is smooth.
Cons: Not too comfortable to use for extended periods. If you’re looking for a mouse with a full suite of Windows 8 touch controls, this isn’t it – no multi-touch functionality. Still uses AA batteries.
Excerpt: Having a mouse to suit your needs while working on a computer is paramount. Although there are many gesture-driven features being integrated deeply into both OS X 10.8 and Windows 8, many users still prefer to use a mouse.
Logitech T400 mouse lets you get touchy-feely with Windows 8
18 June 2013
Summary: The Zone Touch Mouse works as a traditional three-button mouse with the added benefit of the glass touch strip for select Windows 8 gestures. We just wish the touch features were a little more precise.
Pros: The Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 has a touch-compatible strip to take advantage of Windows 8 shortcuts, ambidextrous design, a Unifying Receiver which lets you use one USB dongle for up to six Logitech peripherals, and an 18-month battery life with a three-year warranty.
Cons: The imprecise touch strip makes scrolling an exercise in patience, its low-profile contour can be uncomfortable for bigger hands.
Conclusion: Although the Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 is a good all-around mouse with a handsomely minimalist and ambidextrous design, its low profile and somewhat basic gesture control functionality keep it from being the quintessential Windows 8 mouse.
Pros: Dongle can be stored in base of mouse. Supports Windows 8 gestures. Unifying receiver frees up USB ports. Soft grip is ergonomically sound. Ambidextrous.
Cons: Low profile. Non-rechargeable. No Bluetooth connectivity.
Conclusion: There isn't a lot to say about the left and right mouse buttons (they click when you press them, believe it or not), but the multi-function touch zone has a couple of tricks up its sleeve and proves useful during everyday use. And we must confess; nobody in the HEXUS office was particularly eager to sacrifice their tried-and-trusted scroll wheel in favour of a touch panel.
Excerpt: The Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 is the latest entry in what promises to be a burgeoning (and lucrative) market: peripherals designed to make Windows 8 more user friendly. While the T400 is a good all-around mouse with a handsomely minimalist appearance, its low profile and somewhat basic gesture control functionality limit its potential.
Logitech Zone Touch T400 Wireless Mouse for Windows 8 Review
12 November 2012
Summary: The Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 is a great entry level wireless mouse that supports gestures, but it left us wanting more Windows 8 navigation options. If gesture scrolling, tap zoom and one touch access to the Windows start menu is all you need then it works, but if you want more functionality you need to step up to a more expensive model.
