As the art of gaming has ascended to a higher level, so has the need for a perfectly functioning gaming keyboard that can keep up. It can be pretty hard to get your WoW on with your standard PC keyboard, so maybe it’s time to invest in something a little more tailored to you. If you are looking for the perfect gaming keyboard to get the most out of your gaming experience, why not take a look at the Logitech Wireless Wave combo Mk550 with keyboard and mouse?
Why Choose the Logitech wireless wave combo mk550?
Let’s start by looking at the features of the Logitech Wireless Wave combo Mk550, because simply stating that its innovative wave-shaped keyboard is comfortable just doesn’t do it justice! Many gamers are not fond of the wireless variety of gaming keyboard, mainly because comfort, range and battery life are often an issue, but not anymore!
One of the key things to consider with the Mk550 is that the range of the keyboard and mouse is especially impressive. Logitech state that it will connect wireless to your computer from up to 33 feet away (with 2.4GHz wireless connection) and many users across the gaming industry agree that this is pretty accurate!
The Mk550 keyboard built to be as comfortable as possible, but it also matches up perfectly with an ergonomically designed laser mouse to create ultimate luxury for users who are very serious about their comfort levels.
As for the battery life, both pieces of kit are powered by 2 AA batteries- the keyboard should last for around 3 years and the mouse for around 2 years. Of course, this will depend on usage, but there is a handy battery indicator that will blink when you are running low.
Logitech mk550 wireless wave combo Drivers, Software and Configuration
When you receive your Logitech Mk550 Wireless Wave combo, you’ll need to go over to Logitech’s website and download all of the latest SetPoint drivers/software. Custom built drivers and software will allow you to get the absolute best performance from your devices with the different configuration options. You will also be able to quickly check battery life as you go along.
The keyboard features a variety of hot-keys, which are mostly found in the form of FN-type keys and custom buttons. You will find multimedia buttons at the top of the device to increase/decrease volume, mute sound, etc and the F1-F12 keys are surprisingly grouped into 4 sets of 3- which may take a bit of getting used to.
The software options for the Mk550 do allow you to change the functions of button shortcuts and to disable certain keys, namely the Windows key. Many gamers find that this key in particular is intrusive during game play, so this is a decent feature indeed.
Logitech wireless wave combo mk550 Features
It is worth considering that the Mk550 keyboard and mouse combo is pretty big, so it may take up some space on your desk area, but as it is wireless this isn’t such an issue. Typing is easy to do and the unit is relatively quiet, the height can be adjusted to suit and the on/off button is located on the back of the keyboard. The ‘wave’ design does make for a comfortable arm rest during game play, as it’s supposed to, and as the mouse features a scroll wheel, tilt wheel and 3 programmable buttons, you really can play with amazing accuracy. It also uses laser technology to detect movement with more accuracy, so you can even play on glass surfaces!
