Rapoo 3300P Wireless Optical Mouse review


Rapoo-3300P-Mouse-01

Personally, I can’t get enough peripherals for my desktop or laptop.  I needed a mouse that was small enough to throw into my bag whenever I went out, but nothing clunky.  Since I’ve reviewed other Rapoo products before, I grabbed the chance to  review the Rapoo 3300p Wireless Optical Mouse.  Let’s take a look!

The mouse operates on the 5Ghz wireless channel, which is to avoid interference with the usual Bluetooth and Wi-Fi operation at 2.4Ghz wireless channel.

As for size, it measures roughly  2.87 in x 1.88in.  It’s super lightweight (about 1 oz) even with the required (but not included) one AAA battery.  You can see the size of it compared to my hand.  It’s super small but still comfortable to use.

The mouse has a smooth finish, which feels grippy on the top as well as sides.  The scroll in the middle has a bit of resistance which I like in a mouse, rather than it being too fast.

The nano USB receiver fits nicely into the mouse when you aren’t using it, so that it’s not lost when you throw in into your bag. Using the mouse on a Mac as well as a PC requires no software drivers, which is super convenient.  The Rapoo website states that the tracking is at 1000 DPI, making it’s use nice and smooth on any OS.  I really loved using this little guy, and recommend it if you need something super small and portable.

    If it ain’t got 5 buttons, it is NOT mine. If it ain’t big enough to fit my hand I CAN’T use it. so this mouse is the most useless mouse ever invented, EVER!

    Imjust received mine from Amazon. Plugged it into my macbook pro and it worked fine. Yes it is very small in my average sized hand, but I like the fact that the receiver stores in the mouse, and it was less rhan $20.00. I don’t do a lot of work on my laptop so size is not an issue for me .

    Bought one on sale for $18CDN. Just arrived today, and have to say I agree with your review. Tracks better than my old (wired) mouse. Fits my hand beautifully, despite them being ‘man-sized’ (I wear a size L men’s glove) and the shape is super comfortable. Mine even came with a battery, which is always a plus. Best wireless mouse I’ve used so far. May even buy another for my desktop.
