Update: Revisiting this post after a year, and after reading it, I feel I left a lot of things that were needed to be covered. So’ I’ll do it now because of better late than never.
Updated on July 2017: It’s been three years and the Keyboard is still going strong. I’ve actually perfected typing on this tiny keyboard, loving the speed I am able to type. Enjoy the review.
‘I have been looking for a perfect Keyboard from a very long time, in my search for buying the perfect one, I ended up buying this Logitech MK240 Wireless Keyboard Combo. Which I am using to write this very post.
My earlier purchase from Logitech, the Logitech wireless keyboard was not that great and made me opt for another one, the Microsoft 2000, which had been my companion for a very long time, I ended up buying this wireless keyboard from Logitech again, but this time, I tried many similar keyboards before settling with this particular model.
The reason for buying a compact keyboard is that I am left-handed and I don’t use the numeric keys at all, So having these keys on my keyboard does not make any sense. This Compact wireless keyboard doesn’t have the separate numeric keys and also makes the access of mouse little easy as I can easily reach the mouse without actually having to lift my arm. Yes. it’s helpful for longer sessions.
So, the people who make use of the numeric keys on the right-hand side, this keyboard disqualifies. But for people who can live without it, may actually like using such a compact keyboard.
Typing Experience on Logitech MK240 Wireless Keyboard
I have been using the keyboard from last one year, and have now grown accustomed to it, I the typing experience, the key travel is satisfying, but I still feel the keys are little narrow to fit into this small frame.
Typing my Macbook air feels little hard to press after using this keyboard, but the keys on Macbook are nicely placed, I actually write more on the Macbook despite the typing feeling slower than this keyboard.
The mouse you get in the combo is not great at all.
I am still using the Mouse from the Microsoft 2000 Combo. I forced myself to use this plastic mouse and it turns out it’s not that bad.
The mouse is actually lighter, which was one of the irritating things about this mouse initially, but now all other mouses feel heavy.
The plastic quality of the mouse is also not up to the mark and feels like a toy rather than a working device. But this toy has been running on the same two AAA sized batteries from last one year which is quite amazing.
The company website claims that this keyboard and mouse can last for over a year on same batteries,
I cannot comment of that as it’s just been a few weeks of usage, but I found so many reviews claiming this to be true. So it is a good thing for a keyboard to last for a year without having to change the batteries. Yes, the battery of Keyboard lasted 8 months.
So, this keyboard takes less desktop space, looks nice, feels nice (
except the Mouse) and works nicely, with few typos initially. Overall it is a good buy.
We’ve also reviewed the Rapoo 6100 Keyboard which is much better looking and super slim keyboard, and cost less than this one. Check out this review of the Rapoo 6100 Bluetooth wireless keyboard.
