Ever since the evolution of wireless technology, there have been further endowments by various manufacturers to bring in ease and convenience. One among these is Logitech's wire free computing alternative to give you comfortable workspace without cords and hassles, with the launch of their Cordless Desktop LX 300.
The Cordless Desktop LX 300 comes bundled with cordless LX series keyboard, cordless click optical mouse, a compact USB/PS/2 RF receiver, USB to PS/2 adaptor, 4 AA batteries, CD with software, comfort guidelines and Help Center Quick Start Guide along with a 3 year limited hardware warranty; All of this priced for around Rs. 3250/-.
The LX 300's sleek new design sits low and has an ergonomic fit that allows efficient flow over the keypad. Logitech developed their unique technology to provide the user with a flat low profile keyboard that has a Zero degree slope to ensure that the user will have less wrist extension and helps to keep the user's hand in a more rigid straight line creating more comfort and less chances of wrist injury. As far as the keys are concerned, all the standard keys are perfectly laid out. They have a nice soft feel to them. The topmost center portion comes affixed with multimedia keys for every basic media function, right from starting your media player to controlling it entirely. There are keys for quick access to your bookmarks and homepage on the topmost left portion of this keyboard, similarly to the right there are keys linked to start your default email client and messenger.
Unlike every other keyboard the only remarkable difference I found in this one is the function keys. The function keys (F1 to F12) have been dramatically reduced in size and placed such, that they no more look like function keys and appear to be just another set of multimedia keys, which is found to be an unwanted mod, as they now are very difficult at access at the pace they used to be earlier. In addition, these keys are not even as soft and swift to response like the other keys. However these functions keys are assigned with certain tasks when in function mode, for quick access to certain applications such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and a few more. Function keys from F9 to F12 are entirely programmable and let users assign their own settings to them. Right above the Num keys there is one key for quick starting the windows built in calculator. To the extreme left portion of this keyboard i.e. right next to the Tab and Caps Lock keys, you'll find three keys, of which one starts your Windows search application and the other two act as back and forward functions while browsing the web. One thing I hated the most in every keyboard is the rarely used "insert" key within the assembly of delete, page up and page down keys, which Logitech has taken care of by isolating and leaving it just to stay within the num-pad assembly and also as a function key coupled within the scroll lock key, which is least bothersome for anyone. In short, this keyboard is designed to minimize the usage of mouse as well as save time by providing quick access to applications and certain functions through these keys.
