Logitech Wireless Wave Combo
Mk550 Keyboard Review
briefly mentioned in our introduction, many people find that the
keyboard on their laptop is too small and crammed together. Many folks
also tend to find the laptop's touch pad to be difficult to use as
well, especially true during extended use.
why we are pleased that the Logitech Wireless Wave Combo Mk550
ergonomic laptop keyboard combo includes a quality laser mouse, in
addition to a fantastic full featured ergo keyboard. Via a tiny
wireless adapter that plugs into your laptop, both the keyboard and
mouse can be connected with ease, and the adapter is also so small that
you won't even remember you plugged it in.
users raving about a comfortable ergo key layout, the keyboard also
features a slew of multimedia keys, making it perfect for those of you
who like to watch a lot of movies or listen to music. Having key
multimedia controls right at your fingertips is always a nice bonus
despite being nothing new, especially with a keyboard combo of its
class, but the button layout on the Mk550 appears well thought out
compared to many competing keyboards.
only complaints we could find weren't necessarily valid complaints, but
instead appeared to be related to fluke products that made it into the
market. It seems that there may have been a small batch of keyboards
with some wireless issues, as a few complaints agreed that after a few
weeks the wireless adapter couldn't find the keyboard or mouse. It does however look this problem batch has vanished so no worries here.
in all, we conclude that the Logitech Wireless Wave Mk550 looks to be a
fantastic ergo keyboard and mouse combo. If you're in the
for a user approved and highly rated ergonomic laptop keyboard, we
highly recommend you check it out.

awesome ergonomic laptop keyboard. We were surprised by its funky look

positive across the board, showing to us the users of this keyboard are
more than happy to recommend it.
minor complaint that comes to mind was from an Excel power user who
didn't like the way the keyboard worked when using hot keys to navigate
a spreadsheet. We hardly feel this is something most users would suffer
through, unless you happen to live in Excel, so we can't quite knock
the keyboard based off one users feedback.
keyboard doesn't come with a mouse, which is the one downside we could
really identify, especially when you compare it to other keyboards
on this list. But since our focus is the keyboard and not the mouse, we
can' t really ding it even though it would have been a nice bonus if
one was included.
But with a great
ergonomic angle and a 16 character buffer, this keyboard is well suited
for those suffering from RSI injuries as well as really fast typists.
The keyboard also includes standard multimedia touch buttons and one
touch Internet access .
If you are looking
for a highly rated ergonomic laptop keyboard, the Fellowes 98915 should
definitely be on your keyboard research list.
