    Very Good Mouse - HORRIBLE keyboard

    Posted
    FLTechnogeek

    I purchased the MK710 mouse and keyboard combo locally from another store. I primarily needed a mouse but bought the combo with the unifying receiver. The keyboard had some nice features. I especially liked the LCD display that showed caps lock and num lock status. However that is about all I liked about it. The flat smooth keys made touch typing very difficult. I rarely look at a keyboard when typing, and typically just put my hands on the keyboard and type. Not with this keyboard, you really need to look just to get your hands in the right position. The low profile keys have very little spacing between them which makes it very easy to hit the wrong key and you don't get the tactile feedback of the edges of the keys as you type. It's really worse than it would seem. The function keys were small and had alternate functions for things other keyboards have dedicated alternate buttons for such as launching email. This was marginally annoying, but I could have lived with that. My daughter who normally doesn't use my computer used the keyboard for just a couple of minutes and immediately commented about the keyboard. I really don't see the need for the low profile desktop keyboard, other than to make it look cheap, and to make it cheap. The whole keyboard looks and feels cheap. On a laptop there is a reason to make low profile keyboards, but not for a desktop keyboard. The mouse on the other hand I liked, for the most part. The mouse is ergonomic and fits reasonably well in my hand. It is still a little smaller than the Microsoft Mouse it replaces, but works much better. The mouse movement is smooth and accurate and doesn't have any of the lags that the Microsoft Mouse had when left idle. The scroll wheel has two modes, a free wheeling flywheel mode, and another mode with the more typically click stop. There is a mechanical button to switch between the two modes. In the click mode it works fine and as expected. The flywheel mode is really nice but has some minor problems that seem to vary by mouse (more below). The flywheel works really well, and lets you scroll really quickly through web pages and documents. You can still easily control where you are, as long as your finger is on the scroll wheel. However when you let go of the scroll wheel, even if it was stopped, it moves, usually up and makes the web page or document move from where you selected. If you are extremely careful, and slowly remove your finger from the wheel it will do it a little less. It almost feels as if the wheel is unbalanced and if you let go with a "heavy" part up it will roll down. The mouse click is a little quieter than the Microsoft mouse, which I strongly prefer. It is easier to click and makes much less noise. The two side buttons (default forward and back buttons) are fairly well placed. They are a little small and tend to be slightly difficult to press, but overall they are fine. There is another almost hidden third button on the side that you can hit with your thumb. It defaults to displaying all open windows. I subsequently returned the keyboard and mouse combo and bought the mouse by itself from Best Buy. While it is the same model, it seems much better and doesn't seem to roll by itself after you let go. There is either slightly more friction (although it still spins very freely), or is better balanced. Whatever the case it is better than the same model that was bundled with the keyboard. It does have some jitter though. When you let go of the scroll wheel it will sometime jump one click back and forth for a few times and then settle down. So the summary is that I really didn't like the keyboard at all. While it had some nice features, the main feature of typing was in my opinion horrible. The mouse however I really like. Yes, the scroll wheel can be finicky and sometimes annoying, but overall the mouse is really good, and MUCH better than the Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 that it will be replacing.

    Love this Keyboard and Mouse

    I'd like to preface this review by saying that I bought this keyboard and mouse set nearly 8 years ago... and I STILL use them daily. One of the features I brag about this set for is the efficient battery life, since owning the set I think I've only replaced the batteries in the keyboard like 3 times and the mouse about 5, no joke.. I work in IT and am a heavy user and these batteries will easily last a year before needing to be replaced. When I bought this set it Logitech had recently released it and I already had another high-end logitich set that I used at home but wanted a more practical and simple set for the office. At the time this set was over $100 so seeing it available now for around $60 feels like a great deal. Keyboard I prefer the low profile keys and shorter keystroke that is not available from other high-end keyboards often used in my field, specifically the mechanical keyboards. Since I don't like any of the ergonomic keyboards that I feel actually are worse for your wrists and hands I tend to stick with the simpler flat keyboard layouts. This keyboard I find very comfortable to type with and rarely feel any fatigue even when typing most of my 8 hour day. The LCD display shows useful info such as battery life, CapsLock, NumLock, and Mute. The images on the LCD are an odd, almost copper color that are easy to quickly see, but are not distracting like they would be if the LCD was some bold bright color. The keyboard also features Fn buttons that can be programmable to just about what ever hotkey function you like with the Logitech SetPoint software. So repetitive tasks or launching specific apps can be done very quickly. If you take the time time identify actions that can be programmed you can really save a lot of time in be much more productive. I'd have to say one thing I did miss when switching to this keyboard from my other one though was the calculator function. My previous higher-end Logitech keyboard had a digital LCD display so instead of just displaying simple icons you could actually hit the calculator button and do your calculations right there on the keyboard. This was a surprisingly useful feature With the MK710 the calculator button simply launches calc.exe and then you need to select the app as it doesn't become the active window when launched. Maybe it's just me, but this has always kind of bugged me. But still, that is probably my only beef with the keyboard. Mouse The M705 mouse that is included in the MK710 pair is not the best mouse Logitich offers, especially considering it's age now, but for the price it is far an away better than anything else available. It is a Right-handed mouse (sorry Lefty's) that is very comfortable under your hand and has a good sold weight to it. There are actually 3 programmable buttons on the thumb side. By default they are Back, Forward, and Application Switcher. I'v found that changing the Back & Forward buttons to Copy & Paste is much more useful though, the application switcher I have left as default only because I haven't found a more useful hotkey function to set it to. My favorite feature of this mouse though is the wheel. There are two "speeds" available line scrolling where you can progress the page by a set number of lines programmable from the SetPoint software, or Speed scroll to quickly scroll to the bottom\top of a page\document. To toggle between the two simple click the "clutch" button just in from of the mouse. I have gotten so use to this functionality that it's to the point that I won't by another mouse without it. In line mode, the scroll wheel "bumps" to positions as you scroll, in speed mode the wheel is free to spin allowing. In addition to the dual mode wheel, the wheel also supports horizontal scrolling. This is especially useful for spreadsheets as you can just rock the mouse left or right to advance horizontally. While useful in other scenarios spreadsheets are where you will get the most use out of the side scrolling. Summary For the price being offered today I would buy it again, and maybe another one as a back up! I would like to see Logitech upgrade a few things, but for the most part this is a solid keyboard and a great mouse. As far as "would you recommend it" YES and I do often!

    Why Did I Wait So Long?

    This a high quality wireless desktop keyboard and mouse. Logitech’s wireless mice and keyboards are easy to use, no software installation or pairing is required. Setup was so simple. I literally just plugged in the Unifying Receiver into my Windows 8.1 PC, pulled the plastic battery tab from the keyboard, and installed the two Duracell batteries, yes Duracell batteries, into the mouse and I was up and running. The MK710 features Logitech Advanced 2.4 GHz technology. This technology includes 128-bit (AES) encryption between device and receiver which should eliminate interference from other cordless devices. The keyboard is low profile and the keys and cushioned palm rest make it feel very comfortable. The keyboard also has some nice features. You can control the volume of your PC from the keyboard and there are some added features using the Function (FN) keys (e.g. Launch Internet Browser, Launch e-mail application, Launch Document and Spreadsheet applications etc.). There are even quick launch keys for ejecting the DVD (Logitech SetPoint Software installation is required) and the calculator. There are indicators on the keyboard for battery status, capital lock, number lock etc.). Overall, this is a high quality keyboard. The mouse is very comfortable and works really well. As expected the mouse also offers several nice features including side to side scrolling, zoom, and hyper-fast scrolling. There is a battery indicator on the mouse and it stores the receiver. Logitech promises up to 3 years of battery life from both the keyboard and mouse. The MK710 keyboard and mouse go into sleep mode after you stop using them for a few minutes. This feature helps limit battery usage and eliminates the need to keep switching your devices on and off. Both your keyboard and mouse are up and running immediately once you begin using them again. Logitech's unifying software allows you to connect up to six Unifying or Unifying-ready devices to one receiver. One word of advice for the Unifying Software. When I first attempted to use it said it could not find the Unifying receiver. I found a post on Logitech forums which says you must right click and run the program as an administrator. Logitech's SetPoint Software allows you to do additional functions such as enabling some of the F-keys and customize up to 14 keys on the keyboard, enable the Mute icon on the LCD, enable the tilt wheel and customize up to 6 buttons on the mouse. While this keyboard and mouse desktop combo is priced a little higher than other combos it is well worth the money for the extra quality and features it offers. I highly recommend this combo for anyone wanting to cut the cords. My only complaint is of my own doing. Why did I wait so long to buy a wireless keyboard and mouse combo?

    Everything I could ask for

    TheRoth

    I bought this product to replace a competitors product that didn't work out. The drivers were easy to install with the included CD, and I was using the combo within minutes of getting it out of the box. The keyboard has it all: hot key combinations for 90% of what I use my computer for. The pad at the bottom is very comfortable and ergonomic. A dashboard at the top of the keyboard clearly displays which "Lock" keys you have enabled, as well as a battery monitor. Overall the keyboard is sleek, very user friendly, and I've had no problems with missing keystrokes (unlike my last wireless keyboard/mouse combination). Speaking of the mouse, it has a variety of functions that make navigation a breeze (i.e. a side button lets you easily switch between windows you are working on). Two scrolling speeds are available that can be switched by simply pressing a button up top. It's light, responsive, and also has a low battery indicator as well. One of the more creative features is a space by the batteries in the mouse to store the USB for when transporting the mouse and keyboard on the go. The USB by the way is tiny, but has no problem picking up commands from the keyboard and the mouse. I don't usually write reviews on products, but I was so happy with this keyboard/mouse combo that I felt compelled to.

    Great combo, slight tactile problems

    PROS: This combo has full product software support from Logitech (unlike the MK535 combo, which I originally purchased and then returned in order to purchase the MK710). Both keyboard and mouse work without noticeable interruption from the wireless connection, and the software sits in the Windows tray and even monitors the battery levels. PROS + CONS: The keyboard's wrist rest allows comfortable hand positioning, however the tactile press of the keys is somewhat gummy, i.e., it is not easy to tell if you have actually pressed the key or not. Also, the left Shift key has completely lost its gummy feel and instead gone over to a clackity-clack feel, after less than a month of use. The mouse is ergonomically balanced and has a good feel, but it is important to go into the software and turn off the tiny left-side button that sits near the bottom left of the mouse, otherwise it is extremely easy to accidentally press it and trigger whatever the software has it set up to do--by default this is to show all open windows, which is extremely annoying if you are, for example, in the middle of a game and moving the mouse rapidly and then accidentally squeeze the mouse at its base, which then causes you to press that button, which then causes the game to pause and all open windows to pop up in miniature across the screen so you can select from them.

    Great combo for productivity and gaming

    I picked this combo up on sale mainly because I needed it for a new build and because... well, it was on sale. I couldn't be happier with my purchase thus far. The keys are wonderfully silent although not as springy as I'm used to, but I like the feel of the keyboard and I'm adapting to it quickly. The LCD display is a nice touch for at-a-glance monitoring of the keyboard's various states, including battery level. The mouse included is the Marathon Mouse M705. It's a great mouse, albeit a bit small for my large-ish hand. I'll probably upgrade to a beefier Logitech mouse in the future (Unifying Technology will make that a breeze), but for now the M705 is fine for my purposes (which include marathon sessions with Starcraft II and Skyrim) . I had my worries about wireless, especially when gaming, but these units are just as reliable and responsive as any wired setup I've used in the past. I was planning on sinking a Benjamin into a "real" wired gaming mouse for increased performance, and I'm sure glad I didn't. I've been a fan of Logitech peripherals for many years, and they have yet to disappoint me. This combo is no different. Great buy at the retail price, and a steal if you can nab it on sale.

    Best KB&M Combo For The Price

    The Logitech MK710 is hands down one of the most comfortable keyboard and mouse combos I’ve used. I use lots of keyboard and mice as I am in IT. The battery life on these is amazing, you get 3 years of battery life in both the keyboard and mouse! I remember when keyboard and mice batteries had to be changed monthly or even more frequently. Logitech nearly owns the market on peripherals, and for good reason. The USB is the standard Unifying receiver which means you can connect or disconnect other compatible devices with that USB adapter. If you ever lose or damage your USB adapter you can easily order a new one and re-pair your devices to the new one. It’s why I almost always buy Logitech keyboards and mice for work as well. It makes keeping users up and running simple. For the price of $60.99 it is hard to find something better. The typing experience on the keyboard is nice. There is a good amount of travel and the keys are quiet. I also use Mechanical keyboards, but when I need a wireless keyboard this is my pick.

    Basic keyboard w/ all the essential features.

    The Keyboard has all the essential features and the padded wrist rest is comfortable. The LED readout for the battery and caps on and other functions is very nice but the color is hard to see in some lighting situations. Takes a bit of getting used to. The on/off switches are nice to have where you can turn off the keyboard and mouse when not in use for long periods of time (or perhaps for security reasons if someone does to realize they exist). I presume this saves the battery life. The mouse is comfortable and easy to use. I would prefer one that was at lest a little smaller in size but this is not an issue just a preference. The scrolling wheel works well although when you use it to scroll down the screen scrolls back up on its own when you let go of the wheel. This is somewhat irritating as it does not hold its position on the screen. That is the only negative though. I bought this over other products because the mouse had the forward and backward buttons on the side of the mouse which I had gotten used to and really liked on my previous mouse. Again as far as comfort, I might have moved these button slightly forward on the mouse from where they are located currently, again not an issue just a personal preference. All in all the keyboard and mouse work well together and have a very fast and accurate response speed given they are wireless. Good solid overall quality and product.
