After over two years of use... 08/19/2014
This review is from: Logitech MK550 2.4Ghz Wireless Wave Keyboard and Mouse Combo - Black
Well thought out keyboard. It can be comfortable to use. It has all the additional keys that most people need.
The keyboard is the stronger point but both mouse and keyboard have drawbacks...
Prior to this K&M combo I had the S510, which I used for about 6 years and played a lot of games on. It was a work horse. I abused the hell out of both the keyboard and mouse and despite being wireless I never felt at a significant disadvantage while playing and they are still working. I am actually typing this review on them rather than the MK550, why? The mouse has decided to give up on me, a capacitor on the board is loose and sometimes decides to stop working.
Now, I have been using this combo for a couple of years now, about 2.5, but I haven't been super hard on it and I never really got used to the keyboard after 2 years. I really couldn't fully adapt to the layout or the wave. I feel like it is one of those ideas that is good in theory but not in practice and it's not for everyone.
Be warned and I will repeat: This set is not for everyone and I wouldn't recommend it
I know there are people out there that scoff at wireless K&M for gaming but I don't care. It works, however, this isn't a strong set for that. I'd especially recommend against usage for faster paced gaming, especially FPSes.
That's just an opinion, others may be happy with it, but I have not been. YMMV.
