2 out of 5 eggs Logitech has better alternatives. 02/24/2011

This review is from: Logitech Cordless Desktop LX 310 Laser

Pros:

Keyboard is fine to type on. Mouse has a good deal of weight to it.

Cons:

Uses a rather large receiver base with a long USB cable instead of a smaller USB dongle. You have to associate your keyboard and mouse to this occasionally, which is annoying. Other Logitech sets have one small dongle that is always associated.

Range is kinda abysmal, which is absurd compared to how big the base station is. I had this setup to a desktop under my TV, and it was about 2.0-2.5 meters between the coffee table and the couch where the set would be used. Both the keyboard and mouse would blink in and out of functioning at this distance. Holding down a button in a text window, and then slowly pulling the keyboard away from the base station confirmed that the reception is very poor.

The mouse also tracks very poorly for a laser mouse. Both my coffee table and desk have a wood top that is finished, and is somewhat shiny. The mouse works, but cursor position becomes erratic. The fabric of my couch also gives it problems.

I should have bought a second MK520 instea

Other Thoughts:

I own a Logitech MK520 keyboard/mouse combo with the "Nano" USB dongle. Being cheaper, it is far nicer than this combo. It suffers none of the problems of this set. I ultimately swapped the two, because the MK520 set was more capable of handling the radio distance and surfaces than the LX310. On my desk, the distance to the receiver is only about half a meter away, so there are no issues anymore with reception. The mouse still flakes out enough to require a mousepad.

The keyboard also uses AAs, while the mouse uses AAAs. I had to go out and buy a pack of AAA NiMHs, but that's about par for the course.
