Price, specifications and full consumer review of the affordable wireless mouse Asus WT465
Recently I came upon a great offer for a wireless mouse and even though I didn't need one I decided to check it out and share my impressions from the Asus WT465 with you. In today's review we will take a look at this budget wireless mouse and soon I will also add a short video presentation of that same cheap mouse.

The build quality of the Asus WT465 is actually pretty good. The mouse feels solid in the hand without any rattles or other strange noise from poor design and construction. The mouse itself is entirely made of black plastics which despite of the low price feels high quality and durable.
Asus WT465 will basically do what it is designed for - good for everyday use, pretty accurate on most surfaces (not all though) and comfortable. This mouse is actually pretty big and I think it would better work with desktop computers rather than laptops. For your mobile computing purposes I would recommend the Logitech M175 wireless mouse which much more compact and easier to carry around. Also I think it the WT465 is not accurate on some surfaces that you may put your laptop on and that's why it's definitely not a great choice if you are looking for a wireless mouse for your notebook.

Asus WT465 is powered by 1.5V battery which comes included in the package and will last for quite some time before it needs to be replaced. It is stored in a bottom compartment right next to the optical sensor. The power on/off button is also located on the bottom of the mouse.
The buttons and scroll work pretty well and they all have good feedback so really nothing to complain here.
In most stores Asus WT465 costs around $15-20 but you can find it on sale just like I did and buy it for less than 10 Euros (yes, that's like $12) which was just and amazing deal.
Asus WT465 is a pretty good mouse for the money, well build and comfy to use. If you mange to find it under $20 you should definitely consider this as your next desktop mouse.
