Customer Reviews

MediaLife software: Do not install this.
Jim McHammer
Keyboard always doubles the first letter when I first start typing (Happens every time the keyboard has sit for about a minute...extremely annoying!)
Jason Bea
If Logitech does not fix these issues, I suspect I will be very quickly tossing this keyboard in the trash and looking for a new one.

I've owned every top of the line Logitec cordless keyboard/mouse combo's since they began making them.. about 3 years ago. I'm not stating top of the line out of ego but more to let you know that I havent owned the more economical packages they have to offer and cannot comment on how they compare.

The previous version I owned was called the MX700. It was a cordless optical mouse and cordless keyboard that use FM to communicate to a base station/charging station for the mouse. They keyboards all use AA batteries. Funny thing was the first iteration of logitec keyboards took 6 batteries then they learned a little and the newer revisions only took 2.

The MX5000 brings in a few techie changes:

Laser tracking on the mouse

Added bells and whistles to the keyboard

Bluetooth communication and simpler interface to the computer

I just picked this up 4 days ago so I'm not really sure what all the extra stuff on the keyboard is for. But its back up to 4 batteries now. There is an on keyboard LCD display (non-color) that shows its status and other stuff. Lighted sliderbars and media player controls on the left side. This kit is pretty much the top of the line keyboard/mouse setup you can buy today.

Things I like:

Laser mouse tracking seems to have a higher DPI rate (accuracy) over the old MX700

Onboard mouse battery power meter

Bluetooth connection plug is much better than the old ps2/usb connectors.

Updated tilt/scroll mouse, back fwd browser nav thumb buttons.

I got this keyboard/mouse to accompany a new computer and I had generally had good luck with Logitech in the past. All luck was gone with this product - the bluetooth signal continually dropped out, leaving me with either just a mouse or just a keyboard or neither. If the product works for you, consider yourself fortunate, as worse than the lousy product is the customer service provided by the company. The support phone line is not toll free, they operate bankers' hours (Monday through Friday only), and after the usual 20 minute wait for a live person, I was asked to read off the serial numbers of all 5 pieces, necessitating crawling around with flashlight and phone to get this "critical" information to them. (I can understand the mouse and keyboard numbers, but do they really think I switched out a power cord on them and am trying to con them?)

Then, after a couple reboots, which failed to accomplish anything (I told them I had done that at least a dozen times, but they were not convinced, apparently), I was told that "probably" it was a bad USB plug on my computer, and the company could do nothing for me.

They did not stand behind this product even a little - it was as if they knew they had a lemon on the market and didn't want to get into replacing faulty equipment. For the record, I have a keyboard plugged into that suspect USB port and it works fine.

My $150 investment in this Logitech equipment? It is in a box gathering dust in the garage as it was so undependable and spotty I couldn't continue to use it. For what I paid for it, one would think some help troubleshooting, or some offer to replace faulty equipment, might come with the price.

Logitech has lost my faith and all goodwill I felt for the company.

Verified Purchase
Originally gave this product 3 stars, and now I wish I could lower it to 2. I wound up deciding I just couldn't deal with the keyboard's shortcomings (see below) and decided to return the item. Unfortunately, the uninstaller left some registry keys in Microsoft Outlook and now every time I launch my email, I get an error message saying Logitech software is missing. After 2 hours on the phone with Logitech (as some have mentioned, the email support is REALLY a joke), the support person gave up and said they would call me back with a solution within 24 hours--that was 4 days ago. Probably spent 10 hours troubleshooting my registry and whatnot and still haven't found the registry keys in Outlook that were left by the uninstaller. So even the software on this particular product seems half-baked.

I'm still very partial to Logitech mice, but I doubt I'll ever buy another keyboard from the company. Bought a corded Microsoft Natural keyboard and have been impressed. This bluetooth thing for keyboards and mice just hasn't been done to its potential yet. To that end, the touch sensitive controls on this board are nothing more than a gimmick. For instance, for volume, you have to run your hand over the slider over and over to get the volume down--and there's about a second pause in between each action. It's the most inefficient thing...useless and frustrating. The mute button, also, barely functions and is really tough to access. And that's a button you want to access quickly. Here it's out of position and you have to touch it very precisely for it to work. Really stupid.

For volume, the "wheel" in the center of the Elite keyboard, for instance, was an enormous step up above this mechanism and Logitech should have stuck with that.
