Wireless keyboard and mouse combos have become quite a rage these days. With most people trying to get the freedom from a wired keyboard and a wired mouse, a wireless combo seems to be the way to go. With most people getting larger displays for the PC, and using them more and more for viewing movies, a wireless keyboard is essential to operate the PC while sitting quite far away from it. Logitech has an awesome range of wireless combos available. Which is why, when I got my hands on the MK260, it was with a lot of hope that this one will perform well, while on a budget. Let’s find out if it actually does.
[RELATED_ARTICLE]The keyboard is dressed in plastic all through, and a matte black and grey finish. The build is quite okay, but feels a bit plasticky to hold and use. A bit of pressure from the two sides and you can even hear it creaking! However, the matte finish does ensure that it remains free from smudges and possible scratches. Maintaining glossy products is literally impossible, with the smudges, dust and scratches engulfing the product within minutes. Logitech says that the keys are specially coated to prevent the keys from fading with constant use.The mouse has the same matte black finish with a tinge of gray running along the edges of the top side. Matte finish again, which is a huge energy saver, if you like to clean up smudges, that is!
The unified receiver helps you connect the PC with both the keyboard and the mouse, with literally no installation required. The keyboard is powered by 2 AAA batteries and the mouse requires 1AA battery. It is surprising why the battery needs AA batteries and not the AAA type. AAA type would have reduced the weight of the mouse, making it even more comfortable to use. Installation of the combo drivers on the PC takes a couple of minutes. No manual installation is required, and neither is any additional software needed.
Read on to know more about the performance, our verdict and the price...
Once installed, you can start using the combo. The keyboard has the traditional Logitech feel- Big chunky keys which are adequately big enough. The key presses are a bit too soft in my opinion, yet very precise. The key travel is a bit more than I would like, but then again, it’s just about getting used to the new feel. This is a full-fledged keyboard, complete with a dedicated number pad and some “hot” keys- multimedia control, web access and email access. However, this one is slightly smaller, in terms of overall dimensions, than quite a few similar spec keyboards we have seen.
[RELATED_ARTICLE]The accompanying mouse is quite a performer as well. Not only is the size perfect for someone like me who has longish hands, but also has enough bulk in the dimensions for the hand to sit perfectly on it. The 100dpi optical tracking is quite precise. Also, did not need to tweak the default pointer sensitivity settings. The 1AA battery does add a bit of weight to the mouse, and would have loved to see it powered by the smaller and lighter AAA cousin. However, the tad bit more weight will not make too much of a difference, and I’ll be nit-picking of I go on about it any further!
At a price of Rs 1495, I really cannot hold anything against the MK260. It is a good deal on paper, and performs well when asked to. Yes, there will be some less expensive options out there, but the Logitech stamp does command a slightly premium price. If you are in the market for a basic no frills wireless keyboard and mouse combo, this is the one to check out.
