The Logitech MK550 Wireless Wave Keyboard and Mouse uses an ergonomic wave design for more natural typing when working. The Logitech Constant Curve layout is similar to regular keyboards but eases the stress on your wrists and allows for more comfortable working. There are also 18 programmable keys that allow for rapid navigation to applications you use frequently.
The integrated palm rest and adjustable keyboard height help reduce wrist fatigue and make it easier to type for longer periods of time without strain.
Say goodbye to your micro-mouse or touchpad. The MK550 includes a precision-laser mouse for faster navigation and detailed work.
The Logitech MK550 Wireless Wave Keyboard and Mouse Combo will have you working for longer with ease. The keyboard has a 3-year battery life, and the mouse has a 2-year battery life.
Setup is simple—just plug in the Logitech Unifying receiver and you’re ready to go. Your keystrokes are safe with built-in 128-bit AES-grade encryption. Keystroke dropouts and keyboard lag are a thing of the past with the built-in 2.4GHz wireless signal.

Top Customer Reviews
1. well-designed keyboard. The palm cushion is a little soft which makes you wrist feel comfortable when you are not typing. It may take some time to get used to the gradual wave-shaped contour, but I think it's good too.
2. 18 programable keys.
3. The size of M510 mice is exactly what I look for. Mouse Dimensions (height x width x depth): 2.56 in (65 mm) x 4.72 in (120 mm) x 1.61 in (41 mm)
4. Battery life is long. According to Logitech, the keyboard has 3-year battery life, and the mouse has two years. Both of them use 2 AA batteris.
1. No Caps-lock light in the keyboard.
2. Home/End/Delete/PageUp/PageDown key layout is not good. I often press the bigger Delete key when I tend to click the End Key.
3. The Logitech SetPoint software (6.67) does not support M510 mouse. I can pair my other Logitech devices in the Unifying Software and manage all of them in SetPoint, but M510 is an exception. I had to download another software Logitech Options to manage M510.
I work in IT for a small company, we have about 30 computers. When the previous system admin was setting up the network he got every computer set up with the same hardware - including the same keyboard and mouse.
Today I replaced the last one. Every single keyboard has been replaced with another Wave. All 30 laptop/mouse combos died or started having issues within a year, and all have been replaced within 2 years.
This is a super comfy, very slick, very nice keyboard, and the fullsized wireless mouse is nice too. However, be prepared that you will, without a doubt, be buying a new one in a year or two. If it lasts any longer than that, you are in the minority and you should consider yourself a lucky owner of a Wave that actually works. These keyboards essentially have planned deaths right after the warranties expire.
Here are a few issues I have documented over the last year:
- Mouse will randomly stop moving or become erratic. Turning it off and on again will solve the problem. This happened to 3 of the mice. Mine did it at least once an hour before I finally took a hammer to it and bought a new mouse (which was also Logitech and is now starting to have the same problem. Lesson learned: Don't trust Logitech).
- If you have a Logitech Wireless Headset there will be interference and the headset will stop working if you start using the keyboard or mouse. It restart itself once you stop typing or moving the mouse.
- One keyboard's num-lock stopped working.
- At least half of the keyboards got the "Flashing battery indicator" problem
- two keyboards had an issue of "lag" where they would work fine for awhile, and then suddenly stop working for a second or two, and then spam the last letter pressed. So if I was typing with one of those keyboards right now it would look like thissssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss
- One keyboard's delete key didn't work. Seems like a minor issue until you realize that meant ctrl+alt+delete didn't work.
- Another keyboard would insert a hyphen (-) any time you pressed a number. -1 -2 etc. EXCEPT the number 3.
- Almost all of them had to have the receiver unplugged once a week and plugged back in. Otherwise they either wouldn't work at all, or the keyboard+mouse would have bad reception.
It's now been a year since I left this review. In that time I've replaced 4 more keyboards. Unfortunately, thanks to the previous SysAdmin, everyone is comfortable using Waves, so I just continue to replace them. The company has decided to consider them luxuries, and employees have for the most part decided to put up with the frequent problems. When one becomes bad enough, I just swap them out with another Wave.
I've started using a wireless mouse and keyboard from Microsoft and haven't had any problems.
First, I'll describe the feel of the product in general. I love this keyboard. It might be a bit of a stretch calling the waveshape "ergonomic" but it IS incredibly comfortable and natural feeling. It's an outstanding alternative to the common splitkey design if that isn't your cup of tea (it isn't mine either). For those who can't really tell, the keyboard isn't curved nearly as much as other ergonomic keyboards and the keys have a gradual "wave" shape going across the surface, basically creating two dips or 'cups' in the default QWERTY hand positions and an ebb or raised curve between them. The Numpad also has this curve for the hand. The keys are very soft yet springy and responsive. It feels good and, again, very natural to type on it. In fact, I think this keyboard has increased my WPM. It is a definite improvement over the flat, standard keyboard and ESPECIALLY the new wafer-style Apple keyboards. It's soft feel is vaguely reminiscent of the old Apple G3 and G4 clear plastic keyboards, if anyone remembers those. Finally, I don't know why anyone would do so with an "immersive" comfort keyboard like this, but it has a pair of flipdown feet in the back for the common "raised" keyboard setting--one set makes a 4º angle, the other an 8º. But now the pressing question that I'm sure the other Mac users want to know: Does it work for our platform??
The answer is a resounding "yes", with a few minor 'buts'. The keyboard and laser mouse combo works perfectly and seamlessly out of the box with the Mac platform--literally just plug in the USB receiver and you're typing a few seconds later. The box states that you must have a PC running Windows, but that is only because Logitech dropped OSX support for the macro editing program that comes with it. You do not need this program, you just can't use Logitech's software to customize the keyboard at all. You can still customize key combinations or macros with third party software though. The foil of this is that there are a few keys that the operating system doesn't even recognize. Six of the eight silver program keys are incompatible with the platform and one more sends junk input--the equivalent of pressing nearly every key at once, causing nothing. These keys cannot be read by the OS thus they cannot even be used with third party or Mac software. They are just dead keys to you. The media control keys at the top do correspond to iTunes and control it seamlessly--stop, pause, play and navigate the music that plays without having to give precedence to the iTunes window, but be warned that pressing any of those keys will automatically start up iTunes. They are far enough away from the typing area that this isn't a problem though. These keys cannot control video playback outside of iTunes, they are only for that program. The volume controls work perfectly, as does the power key. Finally, the function keys F1 through F12 do work and are recognized. They come preset for use with a function key on the bottom right of the typing surface and this is "highlighted" on the keyboard in blue. This system is designed to create more prewired shortcuts such as opening Windows Internet Explorer, Word, PowerPoint or Excel. None of these function combos work with OSX, even if you have the Mac versions of those programs, which is actually a good thing, because OSX defaults the F9-F12 keys for controlling the expose' features anyway. Three things I wasn't expecting that surprised me are that the printscreen key actually does activate the OSX built-in screengrab feature (command+shift+3), stranger still, the Pause/Break key controls the screen brightness--pressing the key increases the brightness and pressing Function+the key decreases it. Finally, the eject key defaults to F12 like most PC keyboards, but OSX overrides the F12 function by default to "show Dashboard". If you go into the Expose' System Preferences and change the key that activates the Dashboard (and make sure none of the other shortcuts for Expose' are set to 'F12', then this key will work identically to the eject key on a Mac Keyboard. I highly recommend doing this, because it is hard to find a good third party keyboard that supports the OSX tray open/close command.
One final note about the key layout: by default, the Alt key, which lies directly left of the spacebar, is the 'CTRL' key in OSX and the CTRL key under the shift is the 'Command' key. This is an opposite layout to the standard Mac keyboard. You can, however, re-assign which keys call which modifiers in OSX System Preferences. This will orient the Wave keyboard to be in the 'correct' layout for Macs, but beware that, since the change occurs at the operating system level, if you connect a Mac keyboard to the computer for any reason, it will be flipped and you will have to go back into System Preferences and restore the original settings.
Now onto the Mouse. [PLEASE NOTE: the following review is for the the M705 Mouse that USED to come with this package. It's still available separately, but the current version of the package does NOT have a mouse with the wheel I review here] I LOVE this mouse. It's incredibly responsive and works on all surfaces save for maybe highly reflective glass. It's a laser mouse, not an optical one, so light sources can't confuse it and it doesn't glow bright red or blue whenever you move it. It fits well in the hand and its scroll wheel is a work of art. One thing you can't tell from the pictures is that the scrollwheel is "floating" in its container under the surface of the mouse. It has cumulative scrolling, so when it's in "free mode", you can spin it (literally, it just glides--like spinning the wheels of a toy car) and the scrolling will match it--not stopping until the mouse wheel itself loses all the momentum from being spun. This is an INCREDIBLY nice feature if you do film editing or anything similar and are accustomed to using the Mac scrollwheel or middle finger swipe to advance through frames in Quicktime or any other film editing program, though it is very nice for thumbing through documents and PDFs too. In addition to being fun, this is equivalent or perhaps even better than the Apple Magic Mouse's "momentum scrolling" (scrolling that is faster or slower depending on the speed of the stroke or in this case the spin). Now, I absolutely love "free mode", but if you need something more precise, there is a button on top of the mouse just behind the scrollwheel that will "lock" the wheel onto a track, giving it that smooth "clicking start/stop" feel that most PC mouses have. Press it again to disengage the wheel back into "free mode". The mouse has three other buttons, all located on the thumbside--two arrow buttons and the entire thumbpad is actually a button too. For OSX, all three do the same thing, which is the same as the middle button or scrollwheel click. It may be possible to reassign these using third party mouse software, but I haven't tried because I really only use that function for opening tabs in web browsers.
So there you have it: a great, comfortable and responsive quasi-ergonomic keyboard that works just shy of perfectly for Macs as well as PCs. I love it and I am very happy with my purchase. I HIGHLY recommend it for anyone looking for a 'natural style' ergonomic keyboard and ESPECIALLY for Mac users looking for the same.
