Divoom Bluetune-Solo v3 review
Divoom Bluetune-Solo v3


In today's review we will take a look at one of the best sellers in the portable Bluetooth speaker segment with short consumer test, product specifications and of course price of the Divoom Bluetune-Solo v3.

This compact wireless speaker produces very nice and clear sound and it is particularly loud, especially for a speaker of this size and price. And mentioning price reminded me that the Divoom Bluetune-Solo v3 is also quite affordable as it costs around $35-40 which is quite good for the performance features it has.
The speaker itself comes very well packaged in a nice plastic presentation box and it really adds to the good impression that we already have from this little sound device. You also get a nice protective sleeve for the Bluetune-Solo v3.


Here are couple more images of the speaker, the box and the sleeve:

Asus WT465 wireless mouse - full specifications and consumer review

Price, specifications and full consumer review of the affordable wireless mouse Asus WT465

Asus WT465 mouse review
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.

Asus WT465 specifications

First of all lets start with Asus WT465 specs which are quite short and not that impressive but still important in case you intend to purchase it any time soon:
Wireless technology: 2.4 GHz
System requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Sensor: Optical
DPI: 800/1200/1600 (adjustable)
Dongle interface: USB
Weight: 70g (without battery) 
Dongle weight: 1.8g

Build quality

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.

Performance

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.

Price

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. 


Verdict

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.
