    Logitech Cordless Comfort Duo Mouse & Keyboard Review
    Author: Daniel Topler

    Bottom Line: Your keyboard and mouse are the main interface to your PC, but they don't last forever. If your going to replace them why not go wireless, the Logitech Cordless comfort Duo is sleek, comfortable and has a lot of hotkey's, also the mouse has 3 buttons. We believe they are good value but did we enjoy the hardware and is it worth the money? Read on to find out in our official review....

    Keyboard Design

    The keyboard in the Cordless Comfort Duo package is extremely nice and sleek. It's entirely black, and it's split between the middle for maximum comfort. On the top of the keyboard, you'll find twelve "one-touch" buttons, which do various things, from connecting to the internet to controlling music and DVD's. I'll go into each button's features later.

      

     

    Strangely enough, Logitech changed the design of the keys in between the numbers and the letters (where the Delete, Insert, and Home keys are). Instead of having two rows of three, Logitech has made three rows of two, which can be annoying and hard to adapt to.

    On the bottom of the keyboard, you'll find two clips that keep the keyboard angled. However, they aren't placed on the top like on most keyboards, but instead on the sides. This works well, but I didn't notice any difference between the standard location of the clips. Sometimes, though, (probably once or twice a week), the clips fell down, which was annoying, but probably my fault. On the bottom, you'll also find the "Connect" button, as well as the battery compartment.

      

     

    Other then those slight problems I stated above, the keyboard design was very nice, and very stylish. It should look great in anyone's home or office environment.

    Mouse Design

    The mouse in the Cordless Comfort Duo set is also very nice and stylish. It is mostly black, but in the center it features a section that's silver (with the Logitech logo), and the three mouse buttons are also silver. Unlike many wireless keyboards, Logitech does have three buttons on its mouse, one being on the left-hand side. While this doesn't work well at all for left-hand users, it's great for right-handers. You can set the button do to various actions, but I'll go into that later.

      

     

    You'll also find a wheel for scrolling in the middle of the two mouse buttons. Not a big surprise here. The wheel was comfortable, and moved very well.

    On the right-hand side of the mouse, you'll find a little grip area. It's basically a piece of rubber that makes the mouse even more comfortable to hold. This works very well for left-hand users.

    On the bottom of the mouse, you'll find five sliders to make the mouse move as smoothly as possible. You'll also see a small "Connect" button, which you'll need to press with a sharp point if the receiver and mouse connection is for some reason broken. You'll also find the optical sensor, as well as the battery compartment. The Cordless Comfort Duo mouse uses two AA batteries.

      

    Overall, the mouse's design was excellent, and extremely comfortable. Although lefties won't be able to use the third button conveniently, they should still have no problems using the mouse.

    Receiver Design

    The receiver in the Cordless Comfort Duo is a small, translucent blue device that connects to your PC via USB or PS/2. It is quite nice, and on it you'll find the Caps Lock light, Num Lock light, as well as the Scroll Lock light, instead of being on the keyboard. Although it is somewhat of a inconvenience, I didn't mind too much.
