Pros: Very comfortable ergonomic hand rest and layout for keyboard and mouse. Keyboard is quiet, mouse has a ton of buttons and easily customizable. Scroll on mouse is awesome. Plug and play, worked in seconds.
Cons: I love this package but can not recommend it, I've tried everything and still run into connection issues constantly. Everything will be working fine, then out of the blue the keyboard and mouse will stop working. When this happens I have to do 1 of 2 things, either unplug and plug back in the rec...
Summary: I am using it for nearly a year and a half now but still can't get used to it. IMHO the worst combo I have ever had and way too overpriced. Also never install the Logitech software. they still can't get it to run properly.
Pros: Easy to handle and setup in different angles. But that is all positive.
Cons: Can't even plugin the receiver in the back of my computer without having lags and dropouts of mouse and keyboard., have to use the front USB port for it which is less than two feet away. Worst thing is,it has no control lights for capslock,numlock and scrollock. As a result I have locked myself o...
Summary: I don't recommend Logitech Wave Pro combo for office work, and especially not for gaming.
Pros: Wireless, ergonomic keyboard, useful & large media buttons, esp. sound up/down. Mouse in nice, one of the best i owned -- when wireless works properly (see below)
Cons: Keyboard hard to speed type on, keys are very sticky, especially the Ctrl and Space keys. Wireless reception is unreliable. My keyboard & mouse are only 2-3 feet away from the receptor yet more than once a day it loses reception for a few seconds - in middle of the typing something. It's frustrat...
Summary: I purchased one of these about 4 months ago. (not from newegg - sorry guys) The receiver failed recently. It took a while to make certain what the problem was and I used different machines and OS's to test.
Summary: Total disappointment. I suggest getting the wired one if you still must buy a logitech wave.
Cons: LAG! there is a known issue with mouse lag and this combo. I have my receiver less than a meter away. I've always been a logitech fan and i was about to dump $5k to buy some of their stock but a $130 keyboard mouse combo can't have lag this is just terrible for any company to leave without a fix.
Pros: Cordlees, Nice easy to customize controls, Very comfortable all around (mouse, keyboard and wrist support
Cons: Unforunatly dispite the excellent comfort and nice features the product it was a complete dissapointment. The mouse was was very jerky and never smoooth no matter what I tried and the keyboard kept losing connection/dropping out. I tried to get it rite for a little over a week. I also called Logi...
Summary: I don't recommend this combo for the price. You would be better off going for a wired combo than this lacking wireless. I am quite disappointed in Logitech because I have always found their products to be of high quality. Perhaps this is their bad stepchild.
Pros: It is wireless, comfortable keyboard, lots of buttons on mouse, software is good.
Cons: I have sent back this keyboard/mouse once because the mouse completely quit working with full batteries. The one I received has been extremely laggy aka typing and letters appear 5-10 seconds later. This makes gaming impossible. The mouse often drops signal. I have the receiver only 2 feet away f...
Summary: The Mouse has a "thumb button" which I set to Alt-Tab to switch fast between apps. It worked great but when you start playing games you always get to accidentally press the freakin button. You know what happens :( So i had to change that to "DO NOTHING"
Pros: The wave shape speeds up your typing after you get used to it. I love the Calculator and Sleep buttons on the upper right. The volume control is something that I've always been missing on my older KB. The mouse has enough buttons to play with.It comes with rechargeable battery and cable so you ca...
Cons: Not for work!!! I mean the F keys are grouped in 4 pairs of 3 Ex: [1-2-3] [4-5-6] [7-8-9] [10-11-12] I find myself pressing Alt+F3 instead of F4 f10 to render in 3dsmax insted of f9 Same in flash for the actionscript panel F4 to refresh instead of f5.... the list goes on and on... Not only that. ...
Pros: Nice physical layout. Worked nicely in the beginning.
Cons: After six months or so of ownership, the keys started to get stickier and harder to press. No, I haven't dumped anything on it. It just seems to have progressively more key friction as time goes by. Enough so that I'm considering replacing it after just over a year. This is after 6 years with a M...
