I was in a well known PC store today and had the chance to play around with the Logitech T650 Wireless Touchpad. As it’s Logitech you know it’s going to be a well built quality device. I was using it on a Windows 8 desktop PC. It was not installed on the PC so I was starting from scratch, installing the software (had to download Win 8 from Logitech) and unifying receiver. Installation was very smooth and I was soon up and using the Touchpad.
The Logitech Wireless Touchpad is designed to work with Windows 7 and 8 thanks to intuitively designed touch gestures. With up to 13 touch gestures you will be impressed at the flexibility and interaction you can have with your Windows 8 laptop or desktop. Click, scroll in different directions, zoom and utilise Windows 8 specialised shortcuts for intuitive, speedy access.
The Logitech T650 Touchpad has embedded precision sensors and resistance to fingerprints and scratches with the space to match, something you would not get with any ordinary Touchpad.
The Logitech Wireless T650 Touchpad is rechargeable and has a battery life of up to a month. Recharging is simple; just plug the USB cable into your computer and you’re good to go once again with the battery status indicator informing you when it’s fully charged. On a full charge the Touchpad will last one month, similar to Logitech’s keyboards and mice. For fast, fluid and enjoyable navigation of your Windows device, try the Logitech T650 Wireless Touchpad.

Very quick scrolling, smooth navigation and pinch-to-zoom thrown in makes the Touchpad easy to use. With the 150×145 glass surface it’s very smooth feeling as you glide your fingers around. Although it comes with a £65 to £69:99 (depends where you shop) price tag, it does seem a tad expensive, I would have thought £40 was a better price point, if only to make more affordable to customers in this economic climate. While the device itself is excellent the price forced me to give it a score of 4.
