The Good Comfortable keyboard design; impressive list of customizable features; affordable compared with other ergonomic keyboards.

The Bad Inconveniently placed media keys.

The Bottom Line The Logitech Wireless Keyboard K350 stands out for its comfortable ergonomic touches, an easy learning curve, affordable price, and unique Unifying connection. We have minor issues with the placement of the media controls, but heavy typists will appreciate what Logitech has to offer.

Editors' note: Aside from the Unifying USB receiver, the Logitech Wireless Keyboard K350 is an exact copy of the Cordless Desktop Wave Keyboard. As a result, much of the copy is taken from the original review.

Logitech's new Wireless K350 offers a solid keyboard design if you want a little more comfort in your day-to-day typing. A cleverly designed key layout gently angles your wrists toward a less stressful typing position, without requiring you to relearn how to type. The $60 price tag for the wireless keyboard is a fair deal as well. A few back steps in hot-key layout make us wish Logitech had taken a more all-around approach in its design, but for its stated purpose, we found that the Wireless Keyboard K350 is easy to adjust to and comfortable to use.

Logitech incorporates three design elements into its K350 keyboard that make it stand out from the competition. The first is the so-called "wave" design, which angles the edge keys, and the two rows in the middle up toward your fingers, and pushes the keys in the W, E, and R, and I, O, and P rows lower. The idea is to accommodate the different lengths of your fingers. The varying height of the keys is supposed to match up with each digit in a more natural fit.

Another unique twist is the keyboard's curve. It's similar in shape to Microsoft's Wireless Comfort Desktop, although with one major difference. Unlike the Microsoft keyboards, the letter keys on the K350 are all the same size. That means there's no stretched out G or H key in the middle row to get caught on. Such a simple design step actually makes a huge difference in how quickly you become comfortable with Logitech's board. We were able to adjust to the Logitech's natural curve within minutes, while Microsoft's design takes a little longer to get used to--for touch typists, especially.
