The Bottom Line It's hard to get too excited about Logitech's basic Cordless Desktop S520, but on close inspection, a few design elements help it stand out. If you typically find keyboard hot keys a good idea that's poorly implemented, we think you'll like this mostly well-designed mouse and keyboard set. Microsoft's Wireless Media Desktop 1000 will provide you with a perfectly capable wireless mouse and keyboard for a more reasonable price than its competition. We just wish Microsoft would give more thought to the design and overall feel of its hardware. The Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800 is a worthwhile refresh with updates that include a Unifying receiver for consolidated USB port access, rechargeable AA NiMH batteries, and Logitech's comfortable PerfectStroke key design. If you do your typing in the dark, the adjustable backlit Wireless K800 won't disappoint.
