Summary: At $170, the Logitech Cordless Desktop MX5500 Revolution is far from being a bargain basement offering. It’s probably more than what most people are willing to spend on a wireless desktop set, so you would think that Logitech would step it up a notch or three to justify the higher asking price.
Unfortunately, as nice as the MX5500 Revolution is, it’s hard for me to say that it’s worth the price of admission.
Pros: MX Revolution mouse is a pleasure to use, Bluetooth connection possibly eliminates need for USB dongle, Quiet keyboard, Always-on LCD display has handy calculator function, Bulletproof Logitech build quality
Cons: MX Revolution mouse is old news, Not worth the current MSRP, Keys can feel a little mushy to some users, Keyboard is nothing special, especially at this price, Bluetooth USB dongle doesn’t stow away into the mouse or keyboard
Summary: Before I get into my findings and such, I want to take a minute and show you the LCD screen and its functions.
The LCD screen has six preset programs. The first is date and time. The second one is media, which shows the current media playing and the length of the track. Next up is temperature, which can be displayed in both Fahrenheit and Celsius. Next we have favorites A - D, followed by a key counter and an inbox monitor.
Conclusion: Simply put, the Logitech MX5500 Revolution Cordless Desktop is a great product really does revolutionize the keyboard/mouse experience. Both the keyboard and the mouse have an innovative design that works well, and the cordless Bluetooth technology works flawlessly. At ~$169 USD, the combo isn’t the cheapest on the market, but the revolutionary features really do make it worth the price.
Summary: This is a near perfect mouse and
keyboard combination. The mouse is rechargeable and has Bluetooth technology.
The keyboard and the mouse have buttons that could never be thought of being on a
mouse or keyboard. The only significant downside to this combination is that is
very expensive. This combination is recommended to anyone who desires a high
quality keyboard and mouse combination with the latest technology.
