Quit After 2 Months

LANG5TON, TigerDirect.com
6 January 2014
  • Summary: Like another user said, the keyboard conked out after two months. As expensive as it is, you'd think it'd last AtLeast a year. THEN Logitech made Me pay S&H to have it repaired under the 3-year warranty. I'll never buy another Logitech device again. This isn't my first bad Logitech experience. On the plus side, the design of the mouse and keyboard are neat,, when they work.

Keyboards stops working randomly

  • Summary: Easy install, nice features, but the keyboard stops working randomly. All the usual troubleshooting did not fix it. The Logitech forums show many others with this problem. I give up.

User Review

JFL, NCIX.com
25 September 2012
  • Summary: The keyboard is comfortable with the "wave", unfortunately the layout is not standard (or at least different from the keyboard I'm using at work). For example, I keep pressing F4 instead of F5. The mouse is ok, except that it is a bit small for my hand. Also the acceleration seemed different from my previous mouse (and I verified the settings to make sure they did not change), I needed a couple of weeks to get used to it... Maybe the Logitech software...??
  • Pros: Keyboard wave is comfortable, wireless.
  • Cons: Can't get used to the layout of the keyboard

Space bar misses taps

deskjockey828, officedepot.ugc.bazaarvoice.com
23 August 2012
  • Excerpt: I may have had a one-of-a-kind defective keyboard, so my experience hopefully is not typical because the space bar missed pretty much 50% of my thumb strokes, resulting in me having to backspace repeatedly to add in the space. Other than that defect, in general, all the keys were loud and it sounded like I was beating the keyboard vs just typing.

Not happy, returning

Geo Guy, Officemax
6 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Like the other 'dependability' review, I find that the mouse is 'jerky', sometimes it doesn't seem to communicate with the dongle about 3 feet away, and then will suddenly connect. Same with the keyboard, you can be typing along and then suddenly NOTHING is appearing on the screen. Then after a bit suddenly everything pours in from the buffer. Going back to Microsoft which worked well.
  • Pros: Style
  • Cons: Dependability

great for a while but not for heavy use

Anonymous, Newegg
21 February 2011
  • Summary: The problem is in the design. I thought perhaps over a years' worth of use had allowed it to collect dust/dirt/lint, whatever, so I took it apart and washed it out - which was very easy to do as the 'electronics' come out of the two halves of the physical keyboard quite easily, but I can see why there is a key sticking problem.
  • Pros: This was an awsome keyboard when it was new, very quiet and comfortable to type on, and nearly perfectly spaced keys from an ergo standpoint - I have tried and cannot stand to type on those split ergo keyboards so this was originally a perfect compromise. The mouse is decent, and the receiver is small and mine came with an extension cord so I can place the receiver in a wide range of locations.
  • Cons: The review by Dave is right on, some time ago keys began to stick, esp those on the far left and right of center. I have tested out at over 70 words/minute with 1 error on most keyboards but this one has me going less than 40 with numerous errors due to missed and double keypresses. Sometimes I litterally have to slam the key to get it to move. Typing has gone from being just irritating on this keyboar to downright painful at times. First logitech product I have owned...

Nice at First, But Eventually Fails

David H., Newegg
18 February 2011
  • Summary: I had a Logitech wave keyboard for about 8 months when the keys started "sticking" - that is, some of the more often used keys (like s,t,r,l) started hanging on the attempted keypress. Thinking that I had perhaps gotten a lemon, I purchased another one. Once again after about 7-8 months of use, it failed with the same key sticking issue. I got really p** and smashed it into a whole bunch of pieces. I'm still using the mouse though, and I like it.
  • Pros: Laid out nicely, keys are quiet. Mouse works great.
  • Cons: The durability of this keyboard is poor.

As much as I try...

RP, FutureShop
21 May 2013
  • Summary: I am a professional English to French translator - I translate over 3000 words per day and for me, a keyboard must become an extension of what my brain wants to direct to the screen (it is part of the concentration process). And after 2 months with this one, I still often lose my concentration because, no matter how much I try, I just can't get used to that keyboard.... I miss my Microsoft 4000 so much :( Nothing wrong with the quality; a Logitech is a Logitech...
