Logitech T650 Wireless Touchpad Review
Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Logitech.
With the introduction of Windows 8, Microsoft had done its best to accommodate multiple forms of input. Along with the traditional keyboard and mouse, touch had finally become a "built-in" consideration rather than a tacked-on addition. Helped along by Apple, the rapidly growing mobile device market and proliferation of touch interfaces, touch became a far more commonplace method of interfacing with a computer. Logitech, well known for their peripherals, wasted no time in updating their line of devices with the T650 Wireless Touchpad which Benchmark Reviews will be taking a look at today.
There's a good chance if you're reading this, you can look down at your desk and see a Logitech branded device somewhere. Logitech has become a name almost synonymous with "computer peripheral," and for good reason. It shouldn't be that surprising as they've been at it for more than thirty years (about twenty years longer than most of the manufacturers of peripherals I've reviewed lately)! First starting with mice in 1981, they have since developed into a company that distributes products worldwide with offices in the US, Switzerland, China and Japan. Of course, computers (and the way we interact with them) have changed since 1981 and Logitech has been there every step of the way. Still, for thirty years the mouse and keyboard have been the primary way we interact with desktop and laptop computers. What does the T650 Wireless Touchpad accomplish that the mouse cannot? Will touch enabled devices become as mainstream as the mouse? Let's find out.
