Illuminated keyboard makes typing easy

0 comments

To help you find the keyboard that best matches your needs – and style –
Logitech introduced three new keyboards, including the Logitech Illuminated
Keyboard, which offers an optimised backlight experience, Logitech
PerfectStroke key system and Logitech's thinnest design ever.

Also unveiled, the Logitech diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks is designed for
laptop owners who use a notebook mouse to improve comfort and need a
keyboard to complete their setup, while the Logitech Cordless Desktop S520
offers a keyboard-and-mouse combination that matches a wide variety of
computer setups.
"Style – specifically the ability to choose the style that fits one's
tastes – is increasingly driving purchase decisions," says Romain du
Gardier, sales and marketing manager for Logitech South Africa. "Our three
newest keyboards address this trend, as well as various usage scenarios,
from working in low light to being more comfortable when working on a
laptop."
The Logitech Illuminated Keyboard makes typing easy – even in the dark. To
optimise existing backlight technology, Logitech combined microlens
reflectors, a multilayer painting process and laser etching – creating a
backlight experience that is brighter, sharper and easier to read. Whether
you're typing an e-mail or chatting with a friend, the adjustable backlight
gives you just the right amount of light.
With its transparent frame, the ultra-thin Illuminated Keyboard (9.3 mm from
base to frame) adds an elegant touch to any desk. Balancing form and
function, the keyboard offers a full-size key layout (including a number
pad), soft-touch palm rest and a full row of F-keys, as well as media and
volume-control keys for instant command of your entertainment.
The Logitech Illuminated Keyboard and the diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks
feature the Logitech PerfectStroke key system, which provides a typing
experience that's comfortable, fluid and silent. PerfectStroke is designed
to create longer key travel – 3.2 mm compared to 2.2 mm – than that of
typical notebook keyboards; as a result, the distance your fingers have to
travel to activate a key is optimised for your comfort. Micro-scissors
distribute force evenly across key surfaces – even if you strike the edge of
a key, the key stroke still feels the same.
While notebook computers have become the platform of choice, people often
have to compromise comfort and functionality in exchange for convenience and
portability. Logitech has developed a range of peripherals, including
notebook mice and a line of AltoT notebook stands that maximize the benefits
and minimise the challenges posed by the notebook.
The first Logitech keyboard designed specifically for the notebook PC, the
diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks offers a full-size layout, complete with
number pad, and the optimised key feel of PerfectStroke. By using the diNovo
Keyboard for Notebooks with the Logitech Alto Connect or Logitech Alto
Express notebook stands, you can transform your setup into a comfortable
place to work and play, as well as protect yourself from laptop heat.
Based on Logitech's distinctive line of diNovo keyboards, the impressively
thin (22.1 mm from base to key caps) diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks has a
glossy black finish and brushed-aluminium palm rest that look great with any
otebook PC.
Because you often use your notebook PC in busy wireless environments,
Logitech's advanced 2.4 GHz wireless technology dramatically reduces
interference, effectively eliminating delays and dropouts. And by optimising
the power management system, Logitech's improved wireless technology enables
an impressive 3-year battery life for the keyboard.
With its matte-black and grey palette, its rounded edges and gently curved
palm rest, and the straight lines of its full-size layout – the
contemporary, yet compact, S520 keyboard complements a wide range of
computers. Plus, the high-performance cordless laser mouse delivers
exceptional precision and smoother tracking, compared to optical mice.
The new Logitech keyboard-and-mouse combination provides the convenience of
up to eight months of battery life for the mouse and 15 months for the
keyboard. With one-touch access to Word, Excel and your Internet browser –
you can instantly get to your favourite applications. Four additional
programmable F-keys let you customise your keyboard the way you want it and
a full set of media and volume controls make managing your media, photos and
music easy.
