The product:



Logitech also offers to encrypt the connection between keyboard and receiver, preventing others from ”hacking” the connection and see what you’re writing.



The test:
With the Wave keyboard, Logitech has tried to create a keyboard that follows the way our fingers work best without too much stress. You might not thing about it, but your fingers bend and twist a lot when typing on a regular keyboard and this should be minimized by lowering some buttons to create a wave like design.

But does it work? I’m used to writing on a Logitech UltraX flat keyboard, which as the name reveals uses flat keys like on a laptop. With that keyboard I’ve been able to write quickly and comfortably in my mind, but after trying the Wave keyboard I now truly know how comfortable writing feels like. When the keyboard was plugged in for the first time, and I tried writing a little on it, the outcome wasn’t too pretty, but that was expected since I was used to writing on flat keys and this new one was curved too. This has changed though, and writing is very easy. The palm cushion makes sure that the hands are comfortable when writing long texts, like this review.

The many shortcut keys make it easy to check e-mails, open internet browsers and listen to music.

The mouse is shaped to be used for either left or right hand, and sadly the buttons suffer from this in my opinion. The problem is that Logitech has placed the “forward” button on the right side and “back” on the left. If you use your right hand, then the “back” button is no problem, but the “forward” button isn’t so easy to use. It’s placed to high on the mouse and this makes it hard to hit it with the little finger etc. Of course the same problem would occur but the other way around if you use your left hand for the mouse. But in general the mouse is decent and the laser precision provides a stable mouse to work with.

Conclusion:
With the Cordless Desktop Wave combo, Logitech has without a doubt made a keyboard and mouse combo that will make long hours in front of the screen a bit more comfortable – especially if a lot of typing is going on. The wave shaped keyboard makes it easier to reach each key and the palm cushion is a nice support.

The only criticism I have for the keyboard is that the buttons can be a little hard to press down sometimes. This might not be true since I haven’t used a keyboard with”big keys” for several years, so it could just be a question of getting used to it again.

Logitech’s mouse choice, the LX8 laser mouse follows the keyboards style, but isn’t the ideal choice for a mouse designed for long hours of work. One reason for this is the side button placement which might be annoying for some people.

The shape of the mouse is great though, it feels nice in the hand, but not as good as the Logitech MX518 that I use daily. Also it must be noted that the LX8 mouse isn’t designed for gaming, but Logitech didn’t design it for this so that’s a minor issue.

With a price just under 400, - online, we’re dealing with a very good combo. For the 400, - DKK you get a very comfortable keyboard with lots of shortcuts that can be personalized, and a laser mouse.


Positive:

• Price
• The Wave keyboard shape
• Many shortcut buttons
• Wireless



Negative:

• Bad side button placement
• LX8 mouse is not good for gaming
• Keyboard keys can be a little hard


SCORE 85
