First Look: Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave Pro

1:58 /

Although you don't get a price break by buying the package instead of the individual devices, we still consider this one of the best mouse-and-keyboard packages on the market. It combines an even better version of our favorite mouse and an equally adept keyboard at a very reasonable price.

[ Music ] >>Hey it's Justin Yu, Assistant Editor for CNET.com and I'm here today to show you guys this Editors Choice winning keyboard and mouse combo. It's Logitech's Cordless Desktop Wave Pro. The bundle combines the Logitech MX 1100, another Editor's Choice winning mouse and the popular Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave keyboard. Let's take a quick look at each one separately. First up is the Cordless Desktop Wave keyboard. Check out the very unique design. The keypad positions your hands at an angle that alleviates stress on your wrists and on top of that the keys themselves are of varying height that makes typing feel pretty natural. There's also this really convenient perforated wrist pad at the bottom here that actually adds to the overall comfort. Next up in the package is the MX 1100 cordless laser mouse. At first glance you might actually overlook the thumb pad on the left hand side of the mouse. The whole grip is actually a button that automatically triggers the document flip feature on Windows but like with the rest of them you can actually reconfigure it using Logitech's SetPoint software. Another convenient feature in this mouse is the ability to switch between the rocker wheels free and not scrolling using a simple button down here. We actually found this to be slightly easier to maneuver than the MX Revolution, that's another one of Logitech's cordless mice but perhaps best of all Logitech actually gives you a rechargeable version of the MX 1100 and believe it or not this is the only way to get one. Oddly enough they don't sell the rechargeable version separately so one slight downside to the Cordless Desktop Wave Pro system is that you don't get a price break incentive for purchasing this bundle instead of buying each one separately. However, Logitech does add more value by adding the rechargeable version of the MX 1100 and we thoroughly enjoyed using both devices separately and together. So, if you're all about buying the best of the best, this combination will not disappoint you. [Background music] I'm Justin Yu and this is the Editor's Choice winning Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave Pro system.
