First Look: Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 for Windows 8

1:56 /

Logitech's three-button mouse has a touch strip in the center for Windows 8 gestures.

Three-buttons mice are traditionally used by graphic designers and video editors. But the release of Windows 8 really gave Logitech an opportunity to use the center button as the touch-sensitive strip that really lets you navigate around your computer using simply swipes of your finger. I'm Justin Yu and this is the first look at the Logitech T400 mouse. Logitech offers the T400 in red, blue, purple, black in pattern colors to match your Windows 8 device. So this is really a logical buying decision if you recently purchased a Microsoft Surface 2 tablet. In terms of fit, we found that the low profile design is kind of comfortable to use for long periods of time and could be even worse if you have bigger hands. So the sides of the mouse are wrapped in rubber to give your fingers a place to rest while you hold on to it. And left-handed users will be happy to hear that the mouse actually works in either hand. Underneath you'll find a couple of tracking strips and a power button to help you save battery life. It uses two AA batteries and Logitech tells us it should last about 18 months of use even if you don't powered it off between uses. There's also a place inside the battery slot to store the USB receiver that you're gonna need to pair this with your computer. It's one of Logitech's unifying receivers that lets you connect up to six peripherals using a single dongle. But the most obvious difference between the T400 and other mice is this center button which is actually a glass touch strip that gives Windows 8 users a versatile shortcut to things like four-way directional scrolling, back and forth browser navigation taking you back to the start screen and more. That's obviously too small to use things like pinch to zoom so if you're into that feature a lot, you can check out a dedicated touch pad accessory like the Logitech T650 so you can check out all the details in my full review on CNET, but that's gonna do it for this video. I'm Justin Yu. You just took a first look at the Logitech T400 touch mouse for Windows 8. Thanks for watching.
