One major flaw with the keyboard - it's a US layout, which I wasn't expecting when, living in the UK, I ordered a wireless desktop from a UK seller, I didn't even realise at first, as I'm a touch typist and wasn't paying attention to what was written on the keys. Until I needed to type a backslash, and the key was not only in the wrong place but didn't work (it typed the # symbol instead). I've found a workaround, setting up a hotkey to switch between UK and US input languages. But it's a pain to have to hit the left Alt key and the Shift key to tell the computer to change language so I can type a \ or a | and then having to hit that actual key in an unfamiliar place on the keyboard. It's also taking me some time to get used to the fact that the Enter key is smaller than usual, on UK keyboards it's a different shape extending upwards from the main key and I am still finding myself missing my target from time to time.

Other than that, I love this set. The keyboard feels nice to type on, the wrist rest is slightly squishy and very comfortable, and the mouse is lovely with the same slightly squishy rubberised material where your thumb and ring finger rest on it. Setting it up was easy, basically plug and play although I did take the trouble to install Logitech Setpoint so that I could assign certain functions to a few of the hotkeys.

Basically if you want a US keyboard layout, this is a great purchase! If you want a UK layout, you need to either pick something else or be aware that it won't quite behave as you expect. I imagine this would be more annoying for somebody who has to look at the keys to find the one they want, as in some cases the character you actually want won't be where you expect it to be.

SUMMARY
Ergonomic keyboards have been around for some time, but they’ve mostly curved upward to accommodate longer middle fingers. Logitech’s new Wave keyboard does the opposite, curving downward to cradle your hands as you type. Whether it’s innovative is debatable, but it’s certainly comfortable. The package is rounded out by a slick, ambidextrous mouse and a host of features that are quite useful, especially if you’re running Windows Vista.
Features and Design
The Keyboard
The keyboard is certainly the star of the show here, as it features an unusual wave design that runs contrary to the established ergonomic keyboard design philosophy. Most other ergonomic keyboards are either flat, raised in the center, or have the left or right sides pointing toward one another in order to compensate for the way our arms naturally rest on the keyboard. The Wave, however, takes a different tack by using a straightforward orientation of the keys, but including a gentle down slope on both sides of the keyboard to compensate for the fact that our middle fingers are longer than our index and pinky fingers. It’s not just that some buttons are shorter than others, though. The keys are all specifically designed to curve smoothly up and down, and if you look at the keyboard from a profile view, you can see the difference in key size
The keyboard features three tilt options, which is fantastic. You can lay it down flat or choose to flip down one or both of the stands behind the keyboard, which raise it up a bit — whatever you desire.
Like any Logitech keyboard, it’s ringed with special function buttons, and some of them are enhanced when used in Windows vista. The far left side of the keyboard features just two buttons.

My last comfort Keyboard and Mouse died unexpectedly, and I was horrified to discover that comfort versions are no longer widely available - they make a huge difference to someone who spends hours at a computer! This arrived very quickly, an I am again happy in spending large amounts of time at my computer.

This was a while coming and then has a US keyboard layout. So I now have to remember touch typing skills.

Excellent product for cost, useability and power consumption.
Keyboard and mouse can be switched of as each has a switch.
Feels nice to use the solid feeling key board and good sized comfortable mouse
