The Logitech T650 Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad was designed to convey touch to the millions upon millions of computers in the world that don’t have any touch abilities.
Costing, its a bit on the costly side, but for the money you do get one thing that appears as if care has been lavished on its design and, let’s be honest, it’s cheaper than a touchscreen monitor or new laptop.
Logitech T650 Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad: Design
It is pointless to pretend that the Logitech is not a little impressed by the Apple magic whatever it is called. But then, it’d be hard to design a touch interface and never have it look similar. There are some interesting differences though. The Logitech, for instance, has a built-in rechargeable battery that the company says will last about a month of normal use. That is tremendous, because it takes only an hour or so to charge from flat. You may also use it while it is charging, as long as it is not completely flat.
The only other things, beside the surface itself, that adorn the outside of the device are the USB charging port, and the on/off switch. If you are utilizing the touchpad, you will notice it “clicks” when you press it. That is kind of unnecessary because we expect individuals are used to laptop pads now, on which you can choose things by tapping the pad. It is interesting to note that this clicking comes from the 2 front feet, an attention-grabbing system, we’ve to admit!
Logitech T650 Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad: Performance
While performance is a factor which could be laid as easily to rest on the shoulders of Microsoft as Logitech, the excellent news is the Logitech T650 Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad works very effectively. Installation is a seamless experience with the Logitech T650 Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad paired and up and running without drivers while the optional Logitech Setpoint software is downloaded and installed automatically – so long as you give it the go-ahead. Given Setpoint permits you to create custom gestures it’s worth having though Windows 8 gestures are natively supported without it.
Logitech T650 Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad: Verdict
The Logitech T650 Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad is nearly the best answer we have seen. Better than all of the touch mice that have began to seem on the market and really nearly as good as a touchscreen.
