Logitech LX 710

Very few computer users can say that they don't have a personal preference when it comes to peripheral equipment. No matter what the circumstance, every person who has ever sat behind a computer decides within a few seconds if they either like or dislike the equipment in front of them. Sometimes it takes little more then placing your hand over the mouse to discover if it will become friend or foe.

Consider just over four years ago at the end of the beige box era, most peripheral equipment was color matched to the vanilla ensemble surrounding it. It was a pathetic situation that was slowly trying to make itself better in no hurry. You really had no more than two color choices, and wireless was still a mess. Then without warning, the market turned away from IBM-clone beige boxes and into the custom painted, cooled, and lit products we computer enthusiasts take for granted today.

So it makes solid sense that at the very top of the big three most personal peripheral devices is the mouse, the keyboard, and then the display. I work on several computers every day in various environments, and I am witness to the snap judgment relegating clients hardware to my mental trash bin. Thankfully (for everyone, but mostly me), there is a booming market fighting for your desk space. Even the most discerning individual can find a comfortable match to his or her preferences; which is saying a lot.

Logitech has been around long enough to be considered a pioneer in the peripheral hardware industry. Originally producing products for top-tier OEM's such as Dell, the retail market soon followed; and not long afterwards people like me had three-piece 2.1 speaker systems with optical pointing devices and multi-function keyboards. Through constant innovation and persistent trail-and-error research with new product styles Logitech has helped to shape the peripheral hardware industry as we know it today. Continuing in their evolving development of consumer preferred products, Logitech offers the Cordless Desktop LX 710 Laser mouse and keyboard set designed for multitasking professionals.
