Logitech Cordless Keyboard Review
By Anne Ahira
The latest thing in computer technology is losing the wires. Wireless internet, keyboards and other peripheral devices are all becoming wildly popular.
The early edition wireless keyboard and mouse combinations had a few bugs, and the number one problem seemed to be battery life.
Thankfully, however technology has improved and the Logitech cordless keyboard combination is an excellent product.

The first thing you will notice about the Logitech cordless keyboard is the wave design. The keyboard itself looks like it is in a gently wave motion with elevated wrist wrest and keys that are positioned in a gentle U shaped arc.
This places the keys at a more ergonomically correct position for comfort and typing ease. Just to look at this keyboard you might not think these changes would make a huge difference but after a typing session, you will wonder how you lived without it!
Two common typing errors have also been addressed with the Logitech wireless keyboard. The delete key has been elongated and placed in a vertical position while the insert key has been moved completely.
Anyone who has spent time typing has found the insert key to be very frustrating as you hit it repeatedly instead of the delete key.
The caps lock is an often-struck key and most of the time you do not know you have depressed it until you begin typing in all caps, the Logitech wireless keyboard will display the caps lock on screen so you can quickly fix the problem and keep moving.
Along with being more comfortable for your hands and wrist, the Logitech wireless keyboard offers you a full multimedia experience. There are several programmable short cut keys as well as Vista specific keys.
Some people may find the changes in layout a bit frustrating, while others will be delighted. This will definitely be a personal preference issue; however, you may want to handle a display model before choosing to make the purchase.
Some people who have used ergonomically correct keyboards have been exposed to the split keyboard and will prefer it to this model Logitech cordless keyboard. Again, this is a matter of personal preference, but is important to note.
The only real integral problem with this keyboard is the fact that the Logitech software can be a bit buggy. Most of the time the company will have fixes available online for these issues.
This Logitech wireless keyboard is a nice ergonomic keyboard at a reasonable price. The wireless technology offers users a full six-foot range with included extender.
For the price, you could do far worse than this wireless keyboard and once you have tried the ergonomic design you will never go back to a straight keyboard.
