Let's see how it performs in real life!

Build/Design

The Rapoo MT750S is made of a combination of polycarbonate and metal. These are a mix between matte and glossy textures of black and gray colored plastic.

On top are the main scroll wheel and all nine buttons of the mouse. In the middle of the mouse is the gray colored metal part that houses the main scroll wheel, dpi cycle button and device cycle button.

Around the gray metal part are the left and right-click mouse buttons. On the left side of the left-click are two additional buttons and the side-scroll wheel.

On the left side is the side-scroll wheel and a rubberized plastic with triangle patterns. This rubberized plastic with triangle patterns wrap all the way to the right side.

The MT750s shape may look weird at first but once you hold it on your right hand, it fits perfectly. The shape is ergonomic and makes you feel that the mouse is part of you.

Performance

125Hz polling rate

Above is the Polling rate of the Rapoo MT750. Polling rate is how often the mouse reports its position to a computer and is measured in Hz. This means that the 125Hz polling rate means that the mouse reports its position 125 times every second or every 8 milliseconds. Most gaming mice have a polling rate of 1000Hz.

At 125Hz, this polling rate is perfect for productivity-related task and it isn't recommended for fast-paced applications and games.

Below the main scroll wheel are the DPI cycle button and the Device cycle button. These are two of the best features of this mouse. The DPI cycle button allows users to quickly cycle between 600, 1200, 1600 and 3200 DPI while the device cycle button allows users to switch between the 2 to 4 different devices the MT750S is paired too. It switches between devices in under 1 second. It's crazy fast.

The optical sensor at the bottom is responsive and accurate and works well on different surfaces. Surfaces that we tested it on are wood, carpet, mouse pad, and glass. Basically, it works on almost all flat surface. It will struggle on uneven surfaces.

We charged the mouse after opening the box and we have not charged it since. We have been using the mouse daily for three weeks and the battery has yet to run out. It may actually reach the advertised 30-day battery life.
Software features when using the USB Dongle
Software features when using the USB Dongle

Users can download the companion software from Rapoo's website. This companion app allows users to re-map buttons and re-map both scroll wheels. This means users can remap the scroll wheel to increase and decrease the volume or can be used to zoom-in and zoom-out. Users have full control with this app but only if they connect to that device with the USB Dongle.
Bluetooth only connection loses most of the customization

You lose this customization option when you connect via Bluetooth. This is our biggest gripe with the mouse.

Pros - Ergonomic design, multiple scroll wheels, DPI and Device cycle buttons are easy to access, lightweight, long battery life
Cons - Mostly plastic build materials

Verdict

Side by side with the Logitech MX Master 3 for Mac


The Rapoo MT750S offers outstanding value for its PHP 1950 price tag. It can do 90 percent of the Logitech MX Master 3 but at one-third of the price. Both devices are ergonomic, lightweight and are precision tools with plenty of buttons. 

Our biggest gripe is that you lose button customization options when switching to Bluetooth mode.

If you want better build materials and a more polished overall experience, then go for the Logitech MX Master but if you want the best value for money, then get the Rapoo MT750S. Simply because the Rapoo MT750S can do nearly 85 percent of the Logitech MX Master but at one third the price.

It just works and at the fraction of the price of the competition.
