The keys on the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard are comfortable to use and emit a satisfying click, but it lacks convenient features we've come to expect from a PC keyboard. Nevertheless, we think this Logitech is a practical, affordable, and convenient keyboard that manages to look sexy at the same time.
Logitech Illuminated Keyboard is as simple as it gets, so do not get built-in USB ports, disc displacement or any of the other features of more expensive equipment, such as the Logitech G15. Instead of $ 80 offers a sexy, quiet keyboard with a very minimalist design that looks as good as it performs. If you are a night owl player or simply want an attractive, comfortable input device, Logitech Illuminated Keyboard is an excellent choice.
The keyboard has a very subtle, professional appearance, apart from the extremely thin 9.3mm profile, the entire keyboard is black with the edge of a small clear plastic does not serve a purpose other than to highlight the flat surface keys.
A built-in wrist rest fixed the keys are covered with a soft rubber material to prevent slippage of the hands while typing. After using the keyboard for a few days, did the natural oils on your hands small print on the wrist rest, creating blotches that marred the otherwise clean design.
Under the keyboard, find the two plastic feet that extend from the bottom, so you have a small keyboard angles forwards. Finally, as the title says, the keyboard comes with embedded micro-lens reflex reflectors under each key, which gives a bright blue backlight. You can adjust the brightness of the three predetermined settings, you can disable it if desired.
The keyboard is plug and play, so you do not install the drivers, but if you want to specify macros or customize any of the 12 shortcut keys, you must install the Logitech SetPoint software 4.6KB. The included CD lets you designate each key to perform a range of functions including opening a Web page that displays a custom menu, open a specific file, or launching a program. The SetPoint desktop software also contains a help function that contains tips on how to make the experience more comfortable out of the Logitech keyboard.
