PC accessory vendor Logitech is offering festive buyers an extra present option in the form of its Cordless Desktop MX3000. This set consists of a low-profile ‘Zero Degree Tilt’ keyboard and a high-resolution laser-based mouse. Both the keyboard and mouse communicate with the supplied receiver via wireless radio technology, which Logitech refers to as SecureConnect. Thanks to the keyboard’s Zero Degree Tilt keyboard, all of its keys are the same height. Logitech claims this ergonomic feature helps minimise discomfort when typing for extended periods of time. Like most of its other keyboards, the MX3000 also comes with a detachable palm rest. Like the firm’s MX1000 laser mouse, the mouse in the MX3000 bundle features a responsive tracking engine that is capable of tracking movements, even on polished and wood-grain surfaces. The firm says it has also incorporated smart power management within both the keyboard and mouse. Logitech claims this will enable the keyboard to live off a pair of AA batteries for up to 18 months, while the mouse should last for six months. Both peripherals feature battery indicators that show when power levels are getting low. “With the built-in battery indicator lights, we help take the mystery out of power status – people will know when it’s almost time to change batteries, rather than losing power at an inconvenient time,” explained Denis Pavillard, vice president of product marketing, Logitech. The Logitech Cordless Desktop MX3000 will retail for $120 in the stores around the Middle East.
