A4-Tech RP-649 Wireless Optical Mouse Full Control
review by David, 4 September 2003


Having a good mouse is part and parcel of any computer system nowadays. With the scope of computer usage ranging from surfing to gaming to graphics design and whatever else you may fancy, the plain old computer mouse is one device you'd be hard presses to live without.

End users are spoilt for choice when it comes to the variety of mice to choose from. You have wired, and wireless mice. You have optical mice, and the older ball-mice. You have big mice, and small mice. Whatever your fancy, you're sure to find a mouse out there which is just right for you. Of course, a major factor which influences choosing a mouse is often the feature set, quality of build as well as how much money the mouse is going to cost.

With my desktop being majorly cluttered, tugging the cord on my trusty Logitech Optical Mouse every now and then to make sure the mouse could move freely was becoming an irritating chore. The lure of going wireless was too hard to resist, though my wallet was hesitant at plunking down the dough for the kickass yet uber-pricey Logitech MX700. A little digging around, and I came upon the A4-Tech RP-649 Wireless Optical Mouse Full Control. Wireless mousing at an affordable price, its not a hard decision to make. Nevertheless, was it worth the money? Read on to find out!
