Stop struggling with cords that catch and tangle. This cordless mouse and keyboard give you more flexibility to arrange your desk without having to point them at the computer or requiring a clear path. They provide reliable performance even on crowded desks where cups, piles of paper, books, and other obstructions come between them and the computer.
The mouse's contoured shape and use of soft-touch material provide maximum comfort and control. The easy scrolling wheel speeds browsing the Web and navigating Windows documents. You can also click the wheel as a fourth, customizable mouse button.

I was skeptical of the radio technology which makes the keyboard portable. I thought it would work, but with occasional glitches. Yet I honestly can't tell a performance difference between this technology and having a plug-in keyboard. If anything, I've noticed that the included mouse is more accurate than my old Logitech First Mouse Plus. And, as with the keyboard, it just *feels* better.
As an ergonomic keyboard, this board's chief competitor is the Microsoft Natural Keyboard Pro. I really wanted to like that keyboard. It was a good deal cheaper, had more function keys and even a couple of USB ports. But there's something about the curve of the board that's just awkward. The slope is not as subtle as this one, and those severe angles make typing harder somehow. Worse, the keys are very much noisier.
And the MS Pro's apparent advantages largely disappear on closer examination. The MS Pro seems to have more special function keys than the Logitech. In particular there are a number of web exploration keys that the Logitech seems not to have. But Logitech has put additional web surfing help into the mouse. Press down on the mouse wheel, and a convenient palate of web surfing tools sprouts up. Also, the MS Pro's USB ports aren't that much of an advantage. Because you have to plug the keyboard into an existing USB port, you expand your total ports only by one. That leaves only price and a single USB port as the net advantage of the MS Pro.
To me, that means Logitech wins hands down.
The things I like best are the programable buttons for the internet (hence iTouch) and for your media playing program (such as WinAmp, RealAudio, Windows Media Player, whatever, lots supported).
Another thing I liked about my kit was the weight of the mouse. The broadcasting equipment and the two AAA batteries in it ad weight, and I REALLY like how that feels. It sounds wired I know, but it is very nice. You feel like you have control over the thing. It is also a very percise mouse.
I haven't used the mouse that comes with this kit, but I know it is very ergonimoc. It compliments the ergonomic keyboard nicely.
Another nice thing is the RF wireless, not infrared. I keep the reciever behind my desk. When I am not using the computer, I place the mouse and keyboard in the desk. It works out great!
I have heard that Logitech sells their other designs they don't use to Microsoft, but I don't know if that is true. I do believe that their equipment is far supperior to Microsofts' equipment.
If you have the money and think it would be cool to have a nice wireless keyboard, go for it. You will be surprised how much nicer your desk looks without the extra wires. Again, sounds wired and petty, but it really makes a differnece. If you have the cash, get this or the Wireless iTouch (normal set). You won't be sorry!
The major appeal of this is the cordless mouse (which works fine under both). I wasn't originally going to get the cordless *ergonomic* keyboard but it appears you can only buy it in this combination... so if you are considering it, buy both now! No one else makes one, to my knowledge.
Overall it's a great buy and very useful not just for presentations but also using at your desk without wires and for when you hook a computer up to the TV to play You Don't Know Jack and other great party games. Cordless is a lot like laptops - once you try one, you can never go back. Which is just fine, since they go perfect together :)
There are also adapters so don't worry if you only have one PS/2 port, the mouse can be attached via 9-pin serial instead.
