I bought this keyboard about 8 years ago, purely because of the style and looks of it and know that Logitech is a fairly good make for peripherals for pc's.
Installation was easy, basically plug and play on windows xp, vista and Windows 7 (these are the only three Operating Systems that I have checked it on ).
The design and layout of the keyboard is excellent with so many add-on keys that you would not normally find on a standard keyboard as well as multimedia buttons for volume control, skip, pause, play and stop.
I was pleasantly surprised with the wrist rest which made the keyboard much more pleasant to use whilst spending those hours online gaming.
Another major bonus for this keyboard is the fact it is so robust, approx 6 years ago I spilt a full cup of coffee over the keyboard and thought that that was it - the keyboard would be ruined. How wrong was I - after disconnecting the keyboard straight away and tipping it end up, the majority of the coffee came out. I did however open the keyboard up to check if there was any internal damage and mopped up the last few drops with some tissues, however after leaving it next to a radiator overnight I plugged it back in and away it went - still in fully working order - no keys sticking and no visable sign that the keyboard had been in an accident whatsoever.
They keyboard is still going now,so if your looking for a keyboard with longevity and good layout this is the keyboard for you.
This is Logitech's take on the Internet Keyboard and the first difference you see between this and the Microsoft offering is the design. It's still pretty basic, but the addition of a bit of grey and silver here and there makes it look a little sleaker.
Actually, the first thing you'll notice is probably the price. It's roughly twice as expensive as the Microsoft Internet Navigator, so is it truly worth it?
Well, it certainly is if you're a Mac user, the Logitech is compatible with Apple MacOS X, Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition, Microsoft Windows XP offering just about anyone the opportunity to get in on the act. Although, some OS X users have reported problems with the fact that it doesn't come out of the box ready-to-use for them, so a little peripheral trickery may be required.
So, what does it have going for it if we're not Mac users? Well, I'll try and find a few things.
Logitech use what they call iTouch buttons (there version of hotkeys, if you are more familiar with Microsoft terminology). The Internet Navigator has an absolute iBucket load of them, too.
As well as these it has a scroll wheel, for quicker document navigation whilst you're still typing. It also has a volume control on there.
The wrist rest goes some way to making your typing or gaming life that much easier. The keyboard itself is a touch bulkier than some other offerings but that really doesn't turn out to be a problem, being a very comfortable keyboard to use.
