Latest Logitech Wireless Ergonomic Keyboard and Mouse Combo With Comfort Wave
For buyers looking for a wireless ergonomic keyboard from Logitech, there is really only one option. This is not because Logitech does not make more ergonomically correct keyboards that allow for the proper alignment of your fingers, wrists, arms, and shoulders, but because, according to Logitech, all of their keyboards allow for the proper alignment.
If this seems odd after years of thinking that an ergonomic keyboard is one where the letter keys have been split apart and tilted outward, you aren't alone. Recent thinking in the realm of ergonomics has stopped blaming the keyboard for so much and started to look at the impact of things like keyboard height, keyboard placement, and even user error on ergonomics. The concept is that if you get the rest of your desk correct, you don't need an extreme keyboard layout to be ergonomically correct.
Logitech, however, understands that some companies, government agencies, and individual buyers will not be satisfied with anything less than a keyboard designated as the ergonomic keyboard. For Logitech, that role is filled by its Logitech Wave keyboards.
The Logitech Wireless Wave Combo MK550 is the company's current standard bearer in the world of wireless ergonomic keyboards. Instead of a space in the middle of the keys on the keyboard, the keys on the Logitech Wireless Comfort Wave Combo are both contoured toward the natural tendency of the fingers to reach further for outer keys and for the different lengths of fingers on the human hand. The result is proper finger alignment without an annoying gap between keys.
The wireless mouse is also contoured to fit the human hand without unusual or strained finger or wrist positioning, with or without a mouse wrist rest.
The best new feature of the Logitech cordless wave combo is it's long battery life. Logitech claims that its wireless keyboards can get up to three-years of battery life. That is so long that it's likely you'll only have to change them once, if ever, before a new keyboard comes your way.
As with other wireless combination kits, only a single USB receiver is required to use both the keyboard and the mouse without cords.
