Smash the To-Do-List with Logitech
A few months ago, I reviewed Logitech’s K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard which is a multitasking superstar allowing you to connect to three devices and switch between your PC, tablet and then your phone to type a text. Taking it’s multi-device technology to a new level, Logitech has now released the MK850 Performance Wireless Keyboard and mouse combo designed for the serious multitasker, making it easier to conquer that to do list and quickly flick through multiple devices, screens, website, oh and respond to that super important text!
Designed with the workaholic in mind, the MK850 blends comfort and productivity and features a cushioned palm rest, a curved key frame providing support for all day typing, while the contoured mouse fits perfectly in the palm of the hand. The keyboard also features tilt legs allowing you to position it at either 4 or 8 degrees to achieve the perfect typing angle.
The MK850 also makes typing accuracy simpler with its large concave keys with 19mm spacing (similar to a full-sized keyboard) eliminating unintentional key strokes. Its scooped key caps also act as a guide leading your finger to the centre of the key for a clean keystroke. This product also features incredible battery life with the keyboard lasting up to 36 months and the mouse up to 24 months.
The list of features with this product just goes on, and every detail has been considered. A few of the features I love include:
Fast Scrolling – fly through web pages and documents using the scroll wheel. I love this feature especially when I see something half way down a website and need to get there quickly. It also comes in handy when your search page refreshes and you need to scroll through countless products – this usually happens when I’m online shopping.
Connectivity – the MK850 Keyboard and mouse can be connected via Bluetooth or by connecting the Unify USB connector to your PC or Laptop
Dual-Layout: Whether you’re using a MAC or PC, split key labels make it easy to identify the keys to use when working on different operating systems.
Easy Switch: Both the keyboard and mouse allow you to connect to three Bluetooth devices allowing you to switch between your computer, tablet and phone seamlessly.
Shortcuts: who doesn’t love one especially when you’re working. All your favourite hot keys, media keys and shortcuts are available and work across all operating systems.
If you couldn’t tell by review so far, I enjoyed using this keyboard and mouse combo. I noticed the keys felt super soft when pushed – almost like they had shock absorbers – which made for a pleasant typing experience. The mouse is incredibly comfortable and precise making it easy to scroll. I used my mouse heavily when designing the new Mr Neo Luxe website and actually sped up the process. The only comment I do have about the keyboard was it did take a little getting use to as I have shorter fingers; however, my partner had no problems e and pinched it for his office! What can I say? The MK850 was a hit in my home!
