Product Description Logitech is touting an advancement in comfort and usability design with its ergonomic, cross-platform Cordless Wave keyboard. There might be some marketing hyperbole to this claim, but after a week of typing with the Wave, I'm not sure that I could live without it.

Like other ergonomic keyboards, the Wave includes an elevated palm rest, though not as extreme as the platforms of old. It's also covered in a lightly padded vinyl upholstery that feels soft yet firm under the wrist, as well as a Goldilocks amount of tackiness (i.e., not too slippery, not sticky, just right). The keys are also positioned in a gentle U-shaped arc that nearly escapes the eye, but is apparent once you set your wrists down and start typing.

Contoured, wave-shaped key design conforms naturally to your fingers.
But the biggest design innovation that the Wave introduces comes from its name--the keys undulate across the board in a wave-shaped contour that mimics the changing lengths in your own digits. The keys are at their highest on the outside at the A and Enter keys (which, if you're a touch typist, is where your little fingers are positioned), and the keys trough to their lowest point at D and K (where the longer middle finger resides) before rising slightly at the G and H keys. The keys have a maximum distance variation of 4mm, and the spacebar mimics the wave contour of the keyboard design.

As someone who writes for a living, my computer keyboard is one of the most important tools I have and one that I'm connected to for hours every day. I've gone through many models over the years to get just the right one, and I currently use the Matias Tactile Pro on my Mac as it provides some of the best keystroke feedback I've found (which is the polar opposite to the frustratingly squishy keyboards that came with my HP and Apple PCs).

While the rolling contour of the keyboard layout was barely perceptible, my fingertips took to the Wave easily. It felt like each key was indeed designed specifically to fit the finger that was mapped to tap it. And the keys combine a springy action with a final tap that's not too loud, but both tactile and audible enough for instant feedback. As my week of testing progressed and my fingers grew more accustomed to the Wave, I actually felt as if my typing was both more accurate than on the Tactile Pro as well as a touch faster.

From an ergonomic standpoint, the Wave's gradual curve isn't immediately noticeable, but after a few days I found my elbows weren't hunched next to my body as they were with the straight keyboard, freeing both wrists and shoulders from strain. That said, if you require more substantial ergonomics for your typing (such as the curve and height of the Microsoft Natural), you might be disappointed by the relative flatness of the Wave.

The Delete key has been elongated and the Insert/Help key moved above..
The Wave has a fairly standard extended keyboard design, with one change that I cheered but could easily be jeered by others. The Home/Delete/End/Page Up & Down keys is switched to a vertical orientation, and the bane of my typing life--the Insert key (also the Help key on the Mac), which I often hit mistakenly when hunting for the Delete key--has been moved up (moving into the Scroll Lock key position) and replaced by an elongated Delete key. Another handy feature is onscreen notification of when you hit the Caps Lock key (another one of my touch typing transgressions).

The keyboard is supplemented by a plethora of system-specific feature buttons--including Flip 3D, Gadgets and Media Center in Windows Vista (aka, Expose, Dashboard, and Front Row on the Mac)--as well as quick access to your selected audio program and full playback controls (including volume). All functions can be customized using the included Logitech Setpoint utility (or Control Center within the Mac's System Preferences).

When I began reviewing the Cordless Wave, I wasn't looking for a new keyboard. But thanks to its excellent typing action, unique comfort features--from the contoured design of the keys to the padded wrist rest--and the plethora of customizable functions right at the tip of the finger, it's time to part ways with my old keyboard. --Agen G.N.

Logitech's Wave is a unique keyboard that will be appreciated by many. It's a great new design for those who want something less extreme than full split designs but something more firm than the standard keyboard. With this product Logitech adds to it's line-up of high quality computer peripherals.

+ Integrated wrist cushion - comfy and convenient!
+ Keys are shaped to be closer to your smaller fingers - Less hand movement
+ Integrated number pad in a relatively sleek form factor
+ Quiet key action that seems smoother than others I've had
+ Vista key shortcuts work nice!
+ Programmable smart keys

- Corded design, unlike the Wireless Wave Combo set
- Key design takes some getting used to
- May not be enough separation for those who prefer full split ergonomic designs
- Somewhat buggy Logitech software with sleeper (spyware) processes

The design of the keyboard is nice and sturdy, and the additional number pad is a nice feature. The wave shape is REALLY nice, with nice sized keys and many extras. This is a great ambidextrous keyboard that can be used well by lefties and righties. The integrated keyboard wrist pad is nice and comfortable, and the design gives you one less thing you have to have on your desk.

I have actually come to prefer this to the split keyboard design after using it for a period of months. I can move my hands less and let my fingers touch the keys. As a result, my typing speed has actually improved slightly.

Many simply need the ergonomics of a split keyboard or other design. Try to test it out, but keep in mind it will take time to get used to. I've had mixed results with split keyboards in this price range, but there are some nice options.

I bought the Logitech Wave keyboard (as the name indicates, the overall key pattern goes up and down in waves) just yesterday from Staples, since that was the only place I could find the wired version without the mouse! I don't have much space on my REAL desktop for a regular mouse, so I use a trackball optical mouse (also good for gaming!), so I don't need the mouse. Plus, I don't much see the point of having a wireless keyboard unless you have a REALLY big screen, so you can see what you're doing form across the room. (Wireless mouse I can understand, so no wires get tangled or restrict movement, but a wireless keyboard?!)

My previous keyboard was a Microsoft Ergonomic 4000 which was pretty good, but after I saw this one, I decided it was time for a change. The 4000 has a rise in the middle at too high an angle where the letter keys seperate, which I got use to, but after awhile of having my fingers poised over the keys and wrists on the rest, my fingertips would get numb and wrists would start to ache. (That might happen to loads of people, but I can't remember it happening with other keyboards I had) Ergonomic means "efficient design to reduce discomfort", which I suppose some exceed while others fail.

This one, so far, has proven to be a winner! As seen from pictures, the keys don't rise and seperate at too high an angle, quite the opposite in fact! They dip down where the normal typing position is, the height complimenting the length of the fingers. (The "A" is highest, the "S" & "D" keys sloping down in height, then the "F" key rises in height just a bit; and vise-versa for the "J", "K", "L" & ";:" keys.) All the letter/number keys are also the same size in shape which keeps them all uniform.

I've used the split-keyboard style off and on for years, and going back and forth between split and non-split units I always feel that the former force my elbows outward and my hands into a crabbed position that isn't natural; the standard keyboards feel cramped and painful to use for extended periods. The Logitech Wave keyboard felt comfortable to me at once----no breaking in or adjusting, which always seemed to be the case with every other keyboard. The "wave" structure of the keys is a gentle effect that seems to keep my fingers in the right spot and my palms resting lightly on the palm rest. Other things I really like about the Logitech Wave: oversized and isolated Escape, Delete, Back keys; zoom function for browsers in a handy spot along the left edge (something I never knew I needed); a calculator button; a myriad of programmable function keys; a thoughtfully included and decent dust cover; an overall footprint that fits my keyboard holder.

Sad to say that although I originally ordered this from Amazon they changed the delivery date even though it was supposedly in stock--something they seem to do more often these days--so I ended up getting it from Newegg. Instead of waiting up to two months for delivery from Amazon I received the keyboard in two days for the same price.

All of those reviewers waxing passionately about this board, calling it "the best [they've] ever used," aren't exaggerating. I have spent the past several months seeking a keyboard that had everything I needed in terms of control and, most importantly, rendered a sublime typing experience. Up to this point the closest to ideal was the Microsoft Natural Desktop 7000, itself a fine setup.

Right off the bat, the Wave has a definite feel of quality to it. The keys have the typical travel of a desktop board, but none of that 'clackety clack' endemic in so many of them. The wrist/palm rest is not soft, but surprisingly supple and doesn't seem to retain too much heat (I'm assuming that the little holes are for venting and not just Logitech's idea of aesthetics). There are two height adjustments should you find yourself needing it.

The "wave" part of the board is a very happy medium between the extremes of a traditionally ergonomic keyboard (split) and a standard model. I can't articulate the feeling, but immediately upon resting your hands on the Wave you get a definite sensation of comfort, as though the board is molded specifically for you (I have average sized man hands). Typing was intuitive and ridiculously smooth, and despite some warning of an adjustment period for muscle memory, I found myself hauling along at my typical wpm right from the get go. Obviously, your mileage will vary, but no matter what, this keyboard does not require that you re-learn how to type. I also noticed that my elbows seem to fall naturally at my ribcage, as opposed them jutting out as I cramp my fingers on a standard keyboard. Additionally, the Wave seems to 'force' me into better posture.
