Bad Points
Software is bugged,
Keyboard makes creaky sound when lifted,
Overpriced.

General Comments
The Logitech Cordless keyboard is satisfactory, the reception distance is about 2 metres and works fine. The battery life is very good for the keyboard - i have had the keyboard for over 6 months and have not changed it but the mouse battery will last about 4 months.



The software that comes with it is bugged! The program that allows you to use the 3 hot keys causes more problems than it's worth. It de-stabalises the OS ( i'm using W98 2nd edition), causing it to freeze and the most annoying is the 'secure mode wizard'which encrypts the data from the keyboard to the computer, which does not work and keeps popping up at random!!! I downloaded an updated version from logitechs website but the same thing keeps happening (you can't switch the damn thing off, or even specify not to install it from the cd). I even emailed their tech.support but they didn't even bother to reply. Without this program you can't use the hotkeys (unless you can find some third party software that can activate them).

The keyboard creaks alot when you pick it up, but when typing, it's silent.



Overall the keyboard and mouse are good but you'll have trouble using the hotkeys and i think that the package is overpriced by £10 (i bought it for £60).



Hope this helps

I've had this for over a year and never changed the batteries, since they're rechargable on the cradle that it comes with.

Some things just never change! (since 1995 or so anyway(:-)
<br>Buggy Logitech software, creaky keyboards, and mice that eat batteries.. A double-click that is like a machine gun and causes all sorts of problems. Amazing that they're still in business!
