Switch from one device to another with ease with just a click of a button.

Rapoo MT550

Multitasking has been one of the best ways to get ahead, both at work and at home. Switching from one device to another with the least time possible is also very crucial and having a mouse that can seamlessly switch between devices can help boost productivity and make multitasking easier.

For someone like me who works on both my desktop and laptop, having the capabilities to switch devices with a touch of a button can really help speed up my productivity. The Rapoo MT550 can connect to up to 4 devices (2.4G device and 3 bluetooth devices). It also comes with an adjustable real-time DPI level, with a range of 600-1600 DPI. The battery life is really impressive and reaches up to 12 months of regular use on a single set of AA batteries that you can get anywhere.

Unboxing/Accessories

The Rapoo MT550 arrived with a rather standard packaging with the Rapoo logo on the upper right corner of the box, with a magnetic flap that opens to reveal the mouse. Inside the box contains the Rapoo MT 550 wireless mouse, USB receiver, quick start guide, and (2) AA alkaline batteries.

Design

In the front, the mouse features a typical layout with left and right buttons and a scroll wheel in between them. Additionally, Rapoo also added a button for changing the mouse DPI and an operation LED. At the side of the mouse are three more LED that indicate which device is currently active and an additional forward and back button.
