What inside the box?

The box is fairly typical in that it has a picture of the keyboard, Logitech’s logo, and some features of the keyboard. Inside you will find you receive the Logitech K350 Wave Wireless Keyboard, unifying usb receiver, Driver CD, (2) AA Batteries pre-installed, and an extender cable for the receiver. The extension cable is just so you can move the unifying USB around to make sure you have a strong connection. It is nothing fancy but gives you everything you need to get started to use the Logitech K350 Wave Wireless Keyboard.

Comfort:

First thing I want to talk about is the wrist rest. It measure about 2” long and is very firm. You have to apply a good amount of pressure to see it lose its shape and instantly will reform back. It is very comfortable and resting my wrist on the Logitech K350 Wireless Keyboard you feel very supported. The curve or “wave” that Logitech has put into the Logitech K350 Wireless Keyboard gives your fingers a natural place to go on the keys. It has larger bottom keys to rest your thumbs. The rest of the keys are the same size so unlike some other curved keyboard where you have extended keys these all feel and fit the same in your hands.

The actual keys feel great. They are raised up and give you a response when you use them but aren’t as loud as current mechanical keyboard but do give you some input unlike a completely membrane keyboard.  Key volume is low but you still get the tapping sound when you press a key down.

Gaming:

While the Logitech K350 Wireless Keyboard was not made for hardcore gamers, it does preform fairly well in gaming. Logitech decided to make this what I think of is a half and half.  It is missing the traditional macro keys on a gaming keyboard and has a shorter left shift key but it does perform well.  Going from a typing position to the WASD keys is seamless and if you have long fingers it may be harder to use the left shift, but not impossible.  With a large space key it makes it very easy to use. Overall this keyboard may have not been built for gaming and more for the everyday typist but it will work well as long as you do not use macros. Saying that it is not the best by any means for a gaming but for someone looking for a good keyboard for everyday use but also enjoys games this keyboard is more than ready to tackle that dimension of use. You can play MMO or FPS shooter games without issues with the low lag even though it is wireless.

Installation:

Installing the Logitech K350 Wireless Keyboard is pretty simple. Logitech went to the trouble of pre-installing the batteries, so you are just left with plugging in the Logitech USB unifying adapter into your computer and either loading up the software that came with the disc or heading to the Logitech K350 Wireless Keyboard product page to install Set Point.

Once installed it gives you control of your keyboard to set the ‘F’ keys or change the functions of other buttons.

Conclusion:

The Logitech K350 Wireless Keyboard was meant for someone who types a lot. It can be used for gaming but should not be on the high priority list of hardcore gamers since it does not have any macros for gaming. Overall it is a very solid keyboard. It types well, is very comfortable, and the price point is about $55 from Amazon. It gives you simple but well laid out media controls. The biggest quality the Logitech K350 Wireless Keyboard has is the comfort factor. You don’t feel fatigued after long typing session or even gaming. For the average typist or gamer the Logitech K350 Wireless Keyboard works very well . The wireless has very little input lag as I haven’t noticed myself waiting for the letters to come up or double typing. When I am gaming in Battlefield 3 I don’t wait for movement when inputting commands.  The lack of macros though is helped by Set Point. Set Point allows you to change certain buttons and the USB unifying adapter lets you connect any other Logitech wireless products (up to 6).
