Logitech MX5000 Cordless Laser Desktop - Keyboard and Mouse,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logitech MX5000 Wireless Laser Desktop - Keyboard and Mouse (Electronics)
I ordered this of off Amazon as they were the cheapest by a long way as they offer free delivery!
As for the product, it's brilliant, it's quite weighty but not overly so and that's nice. The keyboard uses 4xAA batteries (supplied), the mouse uses a rechargeable one (non replacable!) and it sits on a charging cradle when your not using it for long periods.
There's a USB Bluetooth dongle to plug in to your PC, so please make sure that you have a spare USB port available or buy a USB hub so you do have one.
The keyboard is a dream, it's whisper quiet to use yet has a nice positive feel the keys, is also has a LCD display which has day/date/time, temperature and a menu for your smart key options + others which i haven't yet explored.
The media controls on the left are touch sensitive and take a little getting used to but are good and respond to a firm but gentle touch.
A Wrist rest is included, but it isn't of a very good quality, this is the only let down.
The mouse is nicely weighted again but is mainly for right handed people like myself, the software that drives the whole setup allows you to configure all of the buttons as you so wish.
The mouse also goes into standby mode if you leave it for a couple of minutes to extend battery life, but comes back to life the instant that you move it, so no worries there!
I would recommend if you buy this package, that you charge the mouse for at least an hour before setting up to ensure that the setup goes smoothly, also you should be aware that you will need your internet connection available during setup as the software does an automatic update (broadband recommended!) during the software setup process, it takes about 10-15mins to setup the whole thing depending on the speed of your computer.
All in all it's expensive, but very nice! Go on treat yourself!
