    Logitech Cordless Comfort Duo Mouse & Keyboard Review
    Author: Daniel Topler
    Date Posted: May 4th, 2003
    SLRating: SLRating: 9/10
    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 Functionality

    As long as you install the drivers for the keyboard, you will be able to use and customize the buttons on the top of the unit. However, you can use all the buttons even if you don't have the drivers installed. Here's a list of what each button does on the keyboard:

    Sleep Button - You can choose in the Windows Screensaver/Power setup to Shutdown, Sleep, or Hibernate your computer when pressed.

    Home Button - Clicking here will open your internet browser.

    Mail Button - Open's your e-mail client.

    Search Button - Open's Window's Search feature.

    Favorites Button - Launches your web browser as well as your Favorites (does not work if drivers are not installed)

    Mute Button - Mutes the volume

    Volume Control -Adjust volume of the computer.

    Playback controls - Playback controls for audio and DVD's.

    If you have the drivers installed, you can adjust four of the top buttons to whatever you like. Specifically, the Home, Mail, Search, and Favorites button, but I'll get into that later.

    There's nothing else on the keyboard that's too different then any other keyboard, with exception of the Logitech key on the top right of the keyboard. It won't work without drivers, but when they are installed, it'll go to a Quick Reference Guide. You can also select, through the drivers, to make it do whatever you want.

    While the keyboard has a lot of features and buttons, it's nothing too special. Most keyboards today offer these buttons, and Logitech fits right in with the crowd.

    Mouse Functionality

    As I said above, the mouse is very comfortable and stylish. But the question is this: Does it work well?

    It works well, but it depends on what you are doing. If you're a hardcore gamer, this mouse isn't for you. But while using the internet and word processing, and the like, this mouse was excellent. As long as it was on my Alienware mouse pad, the mouse never stalled or chugged, but was always smooth. The mouse even worked on my shiny wood desk like it would work with a mouse pad, which is great, but occasionally it chugged.

    You can use the third mouse button as long as the drivers are installed. I found this button to be extremely useful. You can set it to do dozens of options, but I found the most useful option to be the Back feature, in which clicking the button in your web browser equals clicking the back button. It's extremely convenient, and very smart.

    Overall, the mouse works great for the average user. If you are a gamer in search for a wireless mouse, you want a MX700. For everyone else, this is perfect.
