A lot of people right now depend on laptops for their work, which is why using a keyboard and a mouse may seem like an old-school notion. But it is working on these compact devices — that too for long working hours — that oftentimes leaves you complaining about muscle strains and that’s when you may consider investing in a proper and ergonomically suitable device.
Logitech MK295 Silent Wireless Combo is a two-product combination from Logitech that includes keyboard and mouse for Rs 2,595 and seems a promising option in that regard. We used the two to see if they should be your next purchase or not and here is our review:
The combo includes a full size keyboard with all regular keys — including numpad. Apart from this, it also houses 8 shortcuts such as volume controls, changing tracks and more that you may first feel you don’t need but as when you use them you increasingly start relying on them.
We found that the keyboard offers a sturdy built design and features tilt legs for a more ergonomically comfortable use. You will require two AAA batteries to operate this and the company claims that it has a claimed battery life of 36 months.
A noteworthy feature of this keyboard is that it is said to be spill-proof with up to 60ml liquid spillage, which means you don’t have to worry about accidental spills.
Using the mouse we found that it is a very comfortable to use device. You get a contoured shaped mouse that fits easily in the hand and that too with a comfortable grip. The mouse houses the standard buttons – left, right, and middle, all offering their intended functions.
We found that the mouse offers smoothness and has a responsive cursor control with it. This device has a claimed battery life of 18 months and requires a single AA battery to operate.
Available in both Black and White colour options, this Logitech wireless combo offers a 10 meter range, seems like an ideal choice if you are looking for such a device. You can use it with both a traditional desktop PC or your laptop.
This two-product combination from Logitech offers a completely no noise experience, which the company calls SilentTouch. Claimed to be an exclusive Logitech technology that eliminates over 90% of keyboard and mouse noise, it is certainly a pleasant experience for not only the user but also people around as it is really silent.
Keep in mind that it requires a USB port on the device you want to plug it to. Compatibility wise, you can use it with any PC running on Windows 10 or later, Windows 8, Windows 7 and Chrome OS.
