To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Picture is misleading as the keyboard shown is NOT the keyboard that is provided. I purchased based on the photo and was extremely disappointed when it looks absolutely nothing like the K270 keyboard. I probably should have double checked on Logitech's website - sorry can't attach a produce link that isn't on Amazon's website.
Their other keyboards are pretty decent... but they're honetsly kind of sub par compared to their older keyboard designs.
The keys on the MK710 is very solid, soft enough to be on the comfortable side of typing. There isn't any hard clicking when the keys bottom out. The build quality is very solid for this keyboard.
The design, is supurb. It's way better than their other current keyboard models below this model.
The mouse is one of the most comfortable mice out there. The M705 is the same as the VX Revolution but with the new NANO RECEIVER. Arguably one of the best wireless mouse on the planet.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the MK710 and nothing else below if you want something solid but at the same time looking good,
I tried out one of the refurb keyboards from Deals24n7, the first set wasn't even refurbished. It was just straight up used and cleaned up and resold because it had indications it was used. They're refurb by a 3rd party so your lick is a hit or miss.
I tried the refurb MK710 this time and it was in very good condition. Lightly used.
Basically I love it. NOTE that scroll-lock does not seem to be indicated on the "LCD Dashboard", only battery, CAPS, and NUM locks. No big deal. At first the mouse felt very light and plasticky (cheap) but after adding batteries and using it for a bit, I got accustomed to it. It IS plastic like everything else in the world, but is of good quality; the free-wheeling scroll-wheel is great (little button to dis/engage free-wheeling), it spins freely by itself for quite a while, scrolls long pages or console output very quickly.. Cannot yet speak to long-term durability, but hoping it lasts. LINUX users NOTE: if unifying receiver not detected or not working for you, or not showing any paired devices, ensure you are a member of PLUGDEV group on your Linux system. If that doesn't work, maybe your kernel is just too old.
The product is usable for maximum 3 years... After that the company Logitech and their service centers do not take this product for repair. Its basically a USE AND THROW PRODUCT. Remeber Logitech owns the board inside the keyboard so any malfunction that occurs outside warranty makes it devoid unusable and a defective product. I am writing this review after 6 years of using Logitech prroduct. I have bought this product thrice in 2 difderent countries. Same problem has reoccured multiple times which is why remember be4 u buy - its Use and Throw. I am never buying any Logitech products again.
Well, what can I say, I had more for less. Never pay more than 40 bucks for a keyboard. For what it's worth, I got this keyboard used, And I prefer the MK 550 ten times more than this one. I think it's an older model that hasn't changed in years. Plus, the typing style fits my hands perfectly and is buttery smooth. Too bad, not a step up. Want my opinion, get a decent mouse from here and get a MK 550 at the salvation army or goodwill, they are built soo good, you woudn't nottice the difference from new and you would have only paid 2.00 or soo for them.
Have edited from 5 stars to 4 stars - I bought four of these for my work. The keyboards are amazing. The mice however seem to be the kind where the jump around the screen and don't move smoothly. Sigh. I ended up having to buy different mice to make the issue go away (yes, I tried all the troubleshooting tips I could find).
Original review: We were having issues in our meetings rooms with the keyboard and mouse acting up intermittently. The IT dept couldn't help, so I ordered this. It works AMAZING! No regrets at all.
