Introduction, Specifications, and Pricing
Rapoo is a newer company that we have worked with once in the past, so we have little to go on. However, from what we have gathered thus far, Rapoo seems to be into smaller peripherals that are portable, stylish, easy to pack, and have so far functioned very well. To be honest, we clearly recall the last mouse and its vibrations feature, but we also recall that despite the quality device we received, it somehow passed quality control without any batteries inside of it, despite the package clearly stating batteries were included. Grabbing a pair of batteries is not a huge deal, but it has raised a flag, and we will be keeping our eyes peeled for such things this time around.
Rapoo must have liked what we said about the last mouse we looked at, because they came back to offer yet another wireless mouse. Yes, this latest mouse is compact, but there is more styling and functionality built into it. We were really drawn to this latest mouse by factors claimed in the literature. Rapoo not only takes the transmission to 5GHz to eliminate noise in the already filling 2.4GHz band, but they also state that on a single pair of AA batteries, this newest mouse will last twelve months. That's twelve months of battery life - not up to, not dependent on use, just a twelve month battery life, cut and dry. These things really grabbed our attention.
Rapoo has sent the 3920P wireless laser mouse for us to show you today. We have touched on the major features, and with many other mice fresh in our mind, we will see exactly what this 3920P is all about. Of course, we will be going over things with a fine-toothed comb, around the outside as well as on the inside, to see just what sort of device Rapoo has delivered.
If you have any inclination to own a portable wireless laser mouse with apparently amazing battery life, and would like it to fit in the pocket of a pair of skinny jeans, then continue reading. Of course, we will also have our minds trained to the functionality; when traveling, we do not like giving up things for the sake of space. Overall, we feel that Rapoo has put something together that may very well be worth your attention.
Rapoo does not provide a specifications chart; while there is a tab for one, there is nothing linked to that tab. For us, this is not such a big deal, but customers may want to know the specifications for the 3920P, so we made up a chart to go over for the Rapoo 3920P, and its components. The 3920P comes in one color option, which they address as black. Despite the fact the color is listed as black, this design also features gunmetal grey metallic, flat grey, and even metallic-like coatings on certain parts to dress up the aesthetic appeal of the plastic frame and body. On top of that, there are even little splashes of orange paint to help point out the mouse functionality.
On the inside of the Rapoo 3920P, you will find it is based on the Avago A8020, a low power draw laser sensor. In this instance, there are two DPI settings available via the DPI button on the top, and one setting offers 880DPI, while the second allows 1650DPI. Under the main buttons there are Kailh switches to offer a long usable lifespan, while other switches like the DPI and two side buttons use smaller pad style switches. The rest of the chart covers the dimensions, weight with and without the batteries, the included AA batteries, and a 5GHz nano receiver. It also mentions the one-year lifecycle on said batteries, and the two-year warranty on the mouse.
When we think of compact wireless mice for traveling with, we usually don't expect a high price tag. Rapoo sticks with the market average for this mouse, and as we look around, we do find a listing for it at Amazon.com for just $37.90, before shipping. We also found it at a few lesser-known e-tailers that show good ratings, and they do offer the 3920P for up to $15 less, but once shipping is incorporated into the deal, we are only talking a couple of dollars difference.
While there are some giants of the industry already killing it in this market, like Logitech for example, they are the go-to, off-the-shelf brand, and this time around, we think Rapoo may have the upper hand. Rapoo may have something to offer that will change your mind about where to go next when looking for interference free use, compact size, and real functionality, all-in-one discrete package.
