Logitech Wireless Desktop MK710 product reviews

Comfort and productivity go hand-in-hand thanks to concave keys, a cushioned palm rest and a hyper-fast scrolling mouse.

Three-year battery life
The batteries in both the keyboard and mouse last up to three full years, so you can forget the hassle, expense and waste of frequent battery changes.*

Logitech Incurve keys
Concave keys with softly-rounded edges position your fingers properly and invite your fingertips to glide from key to key - keeping you comfortable for hours.

Low profile, longer key travel
Not easily found on many low-profile and laptop keyboards, longer key travel improves comfort and your overall typing experience.

Cushioned palm rest
Your hands can relax - the cushioned palm rest feels so much better than hard plastic.

Sculpted mouse
It positions your hand and fingers comfortably and naturally.

Hyper-fast scrolling
You'll fly through long documents and Web pages with just a flick of the nearly frictionless scroll wheel.

LCD dashboard
It gives you at-a-glance icon status of your battery, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock and Num Lock, so you won't skip a beat while typing.

Logitech Unifying receiver
The tiny receiver stays in your laptop. Plus, you can easily add another compatible wireless mouse or keyboard - without the hassle of multiple USB receivers.

Logitech Advanced 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity
You can confidently work and play where you please. Encrypted, secure cordless technology ensures you a reliable connection with virtually no lags or dropouts.**

* Keyboard battery life calculation based on an estimated two million keystrokes/year in an office environment. User experience may vary. Mouse battery life may vary based on user and computing conditions.
** Compared to conventional 27 MHz wireless technologies.

So first up, this is a wireless keyboard and mouse combo from Logitech. It's been around for a while now but has plenty to offer. A quick look online puts the price around $150 - $170 NZD.

The keyboard and mouse come with a nano USB "Unifying" dongle which hides away nicely, and an extension cable is provided for those of you with hard to access USB ports. All running wirelessly at 2.4GHz. You'll need a windows based PC running XP, Vista, 7 or 8, and an internet connection for software and driver downloads. Right, let's go!

The Keyboard:
First impressions are good, it looks great and appears quite sturdy with decent build quality. I do fear though that the high gloss finish will in time become a grubby blur of finger prints. It has a padded wrist rest and the buttons are contoured which gives a nice soft touch feel. Along the top is a small LCD display that shows battery life, caps lock, num lock etc. I am used to having a small led on the caps lock but this seems to work just as well and being placed centrally it's easy to see at a glance while typing.

The keyboard also offers multimedia controls such as volume up/down and mute as well as a bunch of programmable shortcut keys which you can set to open programs, launch your browser or email and depending on how lazy you are a multitude of other functions. My favorite is a button to quickly open the calculator which I use a lot and find very handy (wow, how sad am I). I'm not much of a typist but the keys are a bit awkward. The travel in the keys is slightly more than I would like, you almost have to make an effort to press them right down and they are a bit noisy because of this. Having said that I'm getting used to the feel now and can put some blame on the very flat keys of my laptop that I'm accustomed to.

The Mouse:
Now the mouse that comes with this bundle is a lot better than you may expect. It has 6 programmable buttons, a 'hyper-fast' scrolling wheel and also offers side scrolling which is pretty nice. The hyper-fast scroll feature is very cool. There is a button above the wheel that locks and unlocks the wheel. This means you can have the common 'clicky' scroll or you can unlock it and it will 'free-wheel' so with a flick of your finger you can scroll ridiculously fast through long documents. Anything that offers me fast spinning wheels is a winner! I do have quite large hands and found the mouse to be verging on being too small for me for any extended use but I'm sure the average person would have no problems at all.

Both devices take 2 x AA Batteries (included) and the life span is claimed to be very good. Reportedly 36 months in fact! I will have to wait and see how that pans out.

With regard to the wireless aspect there appears to be no evident lag and all keystrokes and mouse clicks are immediately represented accurately on screen. Another feature worth mentioning is the 'unifying'. This enables up to 6 devices to connect wirelessly with the USB dongle. You will need to download the software free from Logitech.

Overall:
Yes I like it. If you are looking for a decent quality wireless desktop combo that would work just as well in the office as it would at home then don't overlook this one. Notable points would have to be the multitude of customisation available and battery life. The mouse is great and would be worth looking at on its own, if your current keyboard already does the trick.
