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

    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....

    DRIVERS NOTE: I did not test drivers using the drivers on the included CD. I downloaded the latest drivers from Logitech.com.

    Mouse Drivers

    While for the past pages I've been saying all the good things the drivers do for your system, I haven't mentioned that even with all these good things, I don't recommend them.

    For one thing, the drivers are not very compatible. Although it hasn't happened to me, many people have complained about stability issues and the like.

    Not only that, but the drivers use up a lot of memory and CPU processing power, so it slows down your PC. Considering this product is targeted toward the average user, who probably has a HP, E-Machines, or the like, they most likely don't have much processing power to spare.

    But, if you do install the drivers with no problems and you have a powerful enough computer, they aren't too shabby. They have quite a few things that you can change to personalize the keyboard and mouse to your tastes.

      

    Here's the main page of the mouse drivers. It's basically an overall look at your mouse and what each button does. You can set the mouse drivers to put a button in the taskbar (make sure you uncheck this), and you can do a Device Setup, which lets you choose actions for the third and fourth buttons in a wizard format.

      

    The pointers menu is the exact same as the Windows pointers menu, so we continue on to Buttons. Here, you can adjust button controls manually, as well as set the scrolling size.

      

    Next up is the Motion category. Here, you can set up various things, most importantly, the mouse speed. You can also turn on/off mouse acceleration. I found the best setting was Low, and Off in games. There's also SmartMove, which automatically moves the mouse cursor to the highlighted button whenever a dialog box pops up. Useful, but I don't like it. Finally, you can set up Cursor Trails, which makes a trail of cursors whenever you use the mouse. It looks cool, but it gets annoying.

      

    Second to last is the Cordless category. Here, you can see your battery level, as well as the channel the mouse is on. You can also reconnect your mouse in case it loses a connection for some reason.

      

    Lastly is the devices category. Here, you'll be able to see what mice are hooked up to your PC, as well as Logitech information. How interesting.
