Logitech Wireless Anywhere Mouse MX for PC and Mac
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs awesome mouse 05/22/2013

This review is from: Logitech Wireless Anywhere Mouse MX for PC and Mac

Pros: -really does work anywhere! Glass, uneven surfaces, wood, messy desks with paper and sticky notes!
-super easy setup. going in about 30 seconds with Windows on first use.
-LONG battery life. The two AA batteries last about 14 days without recharging
-nice weight and feel. slightly smaller than the generic corded mouse, but has overall good shape
-scroll button has two modes, one with click and one that is SUPER smooth like silk.
-can work in Linux with a few commands to get the unify receiver recognized by the OS.

Cons: -requires Logitech Unify and can only pair with one receiver at a time. If you use multiple computers, you have to either move the USB unify receiver, or re-associate with a second receiver.
-medium difficulty and annoying to get setup in Linux.

Logitech K810 Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard - Black
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs very nice and slick keyboard 05/21/2013

This review is from: Logitech K810 Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard - Black

Pros: -usb charging, no need to hunt down AA or AAA batteries
-very light weight
-responsiveness is excellent, and the keys feel very nice and natural
-lighted! fun! (can be dimmed or turned off)
-media keys!
-I use my personal and work laptop at the same desk. Now I just need 1 keyboard and can easily switch between them. I like this over KVM switches.
I can also sync it to my phone. Have only used it a few times, but really neat.
-does work with Linux. Following some guides online, you can get it to work. I have a script which I run to pair the device.

Keyboard does respond inside of VMware. This pairing and communication comes from the host OS. If Windows is running VirtualBox with Windows or Linux, it works just fine.

Cons: -by default the media and special keys are enabled. Function keys (F1, F2...) are enabled by either A) pressing the FN + F1 key or by switching the configuration around on the software side.
-no indication on the keyboard of low battery. After a few days of typing, if I do not put it over to charge then the keyboard no longer works. The indicator light is on, but no indication of low battery.

-does work with dual boot systems. The device can be paired to three UNIQUE Bluetooth addresses. My plan was to use the keyboard with my Windows 7 work laptop, personal laptop with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12. I setup the pairing in Windows with the #1 slot. Boot to Linux, run the pairing commands with slot #2 and it works. Finish my work in Linux, come back to Windows and hit the #1 button. no connectivity. Nada. I did this about six times before concluding that there is something with the way the keyboard is configured.

The random digit pairing is somehow associated with the remote Bluetooth MAC. If there was a way to specify the same digit pin with my Linux and Windows boots, then there would not be a problem. Have not found a way to do this.

Other Thoughts: gave 4 stars because it does not work with dual boot systems. Otherwise, 5.

Logitech K360 2.4GHz Wireless Keyboard - Black
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs basic wireless keyboard 05/21/2013

This review is from: Logitech K360 2.4GHz Wireless Keyboard - Black

Pros: -uses two (2) AA batteries. plentiful and easy to find
-description says mini, but there is a full keypad, function keys and media keys. Nice to have media keys!
-Logitech unify capable
-very light weight.

Cons: -connectivity is choppy. I paired it with the unify unit. You will be typing and then the cursor stops. A few seconds later the rest of my sentence is magically appearing out of the keyboard buffer. Happens very frequently. Can't hardly type a basic email without it happening.
