Logitech Wireless Desktop MK250
Advantages: Very user friendly and convenient
Disadvantages: Caps and No. locks
I'm not the type to fuss about whether my keyboard is wireless or not. However, I have this bad habit of eating and using my computer at the same time, which as you might have guessed led to spilling of drink on my old keyboard. As a result, the keys became very sticky and impossible to type some alphabets. This ultimately had me looking around shops and online for keyboards. The product I ended up buying is the Logitech wireless desktop MK250 keyboard.
I have to say I'm not well versed in technical details about various bits and pieces that come with using computers and the reason I ended up buying this product is because the price is very reasonable and I've used Logitech products before and they seem reliable. This product is retailed for around £ 25.00 but it can be bought for £20.00 online, which I've done.
The design is like any other keyboards for desktop computers. The colour is black with the keys written in white for the keyboard. It also comes with a mouse and it is also similar in design to all other mouses with two buttons with a roller in between. The installation is very easy, just plug in the USB into the port on your desktop and you're good to go. The keyboard needs 2 smaller AAA batteries and the mouse needs one AA battery, and they come free when you buy the product. The batteries do last for quite a while, as I have been using this product for about 2 months now and the responsiveness of the keyboard and the mouse is still good. The keyboard has 2 flaps to support and adjust the height to your liking.
As for the performance of this product, the wireless range is about 1.5 - 2 metres I would say. However, since I tend to use the keyboard and mouse close to the monitor anyway, I have no problems from that perspective. I do type relatively fast, around 60 WPM on average, but so far I have no problems with the response and connection regarding the keyboard. I like the fact that going wireless gives me more freedom when it comes to working or eating as I can now have more space to put documents and whatnot, and don't have to worry about wires.
However, one flaw in the design is that the keyboard doesn't have indicator lights for Caps and number locks. This doesn't really bother me as I rarely use the number lock and Caps lock is only used when I'm typing names and such. It isn't a big flaw and it rarely affects how I used this keyboard, but if anyone's thinking about buying this product, they might want to take this into consideration depending on how they use their keyboards.
Overall, I'm glad I've decided to purchase this product because it just makes life easier not have to deal with wires, especially since I tend to work with piles of paper and my desk looks like it's been through hell and back. So far, I've got no problems with this wireless keyboard and mouse and I do feel that I get my money's worth with this product.
Thank you for reading. :) x
