I have replaced many keyboards in the past but none have been both as functional and sleek as this one is, and yes batteries are included! An optional keyboard wrist rest was also provided. The Mini Bluetooth key easily plugs into any USB port. The installation of the software took a several minutes, so go grab a beverage while you wait. When you return (and reboot) you will be ready to use your new gadgets. This model has Bluetooth 2.0 Wireless technology, three times the speed of previous Bluetooth. I have mine about 40 feet away and it works very well with no interference from other devices. The keyboard case is made from top quality space-age construction, it has very solid feel, the texture feels like some titanium plastic fusion, strong, ultra thin and light. Slide-out leg risers are easy to access from the outside edge of the keyboard. The key pressure is wonderful and responsive and has a luxurious feel. There are so many useful function keys you can literally use this keyboard sitting on your couch. Programmable smart keys will launch your applications, favorite websites or special folders. The LCD display is located in the center of the keyboard and shows the current time of day and the current room temperature; yes you read correctly, the temperature. And it’s accurate to within 1/2 degree from my testing. If you are playing a MP3 disk it displays the title of the song and length in time on the LCD display. CD's and DVD's display the track number or title name. One of the unique features of this keyboard is the Touch-sensitive Media Controls on the left side of the keyboard. They allow you slide the desired volume for music or image zoom size for pictures. This takes some getting used to if you have never used flat touch panel controls, but once you do, its only take slight pressure and minimal movement from one finger to pause/play/mute or view your digital media files. The Rechargeable MX Laser Mouse works on virtually any surface. The ergonomic shape is extremely comfortable to the hand and much superior to a standard or stock mouse. The mouse has Tilt Wheel, plus Side-to-side scrolling and in/out Zoom. An LED indicator lets you know when your mouse needs recharging on the included trim styled base station. An exceptional product, Logitech has a winner here.

very sleek with lots of useful features. if your machine is not blue-tooth enabled the blue-tooth adapter that comes with the keyboard makes your system bluetooth enabled (can use with any other bluetooth device). can read you email also on the keyboard LCD, in case you are sitting far away from the screen. the touch-pad for adjusting zoom and volume etc is very efficient and useful.

Overall a good product, though there are some bugs

by A_V on 4/13/2008

Overall, this is a good unit. While still not quite as reliable as a corded model, the mx5000 does quite well for anything short of heavy gamers. Before considering it though, think if you need a model that costs as much as this one though. After a rebate, I paid about 80 inc. shipping for mine. At this point a cheaper - though not nearly as reliable - model for people who want a cordless desktop could be the E110, though it is not nearly as nice for anyone who isn't using their cordless desktop AWAY from a desk (It needs line of sight.) Besides that, there are features I wondered a bit about. For example, the keyboard shows the room temperature. Nice I suppose, but hardly a necessity. Personally I would have much preferred a built in usb port or a 3.5 headphone jack - Still though, this is simply nitpicking. Also, at once point I had a issue with the keyboard not being detected. It took probably half a hour to figure out how to reset it so it would reconnect to my laptop, and required removing the batteries from the actual keyboard in order to do so. (And the information for it was buried in Logitech's website, before that I had tried reinstalling the software, reconnecting several times, resetting, etc.) Overall though, it is a reliable unit. Just realize though before you think about spending this much money if you actually need the features this has compared to a model half or even 1/4th the price. It's a very nice keyboard/mouse, but it's not for everyone.
