 Mouse-and-Keyboard Combo Features Industry-First Three-Year Battery Life

Whether you’re catching up on your e-mail, updating your status on Facebook or just doing a little shopping, you don’t want any unnecessary inconveniences. To help you enjoy a comfortable and hassle-free laptop experience, Logitech today introduced the Logitech Wireless Desktop MK710 — the first keyboard-and-mouse combination to feature up to a three-year battery life for both the keyboard and mouse. The new wireless combo also includes the tiny Logitech Unifying receiver, Logitech Incurve keys and hyper-fast scrolling for the mouse — creating a powerful home base for your computer.

“No one thinks about changing batteries until they have to, but when that time comes, it can stop you in your tracks,” said Rory Dooley, Logitech’s senior vice president and general manager of the Control Devices business unit. “With its industry-first three-year battery life for a combo, you might just forget the Logitech Wireless Desktop MK710 uses batteries at all.”

Ready to Work or Play – Whenever, Wherever

To achieve three years of battery life, Logitech combined the advantages of its Logitech Advanced 2.4 GHz wireless technology with optimized power settings. By transmitting information much faster than typical 27 MHz wireless systems, Logitech Advanced 2.4 GHz wireless reduces power consumption. And by reducing the amount of time the keyboard and mouse remain in active mode when left idle, the Wireless Desktop MK710 conserves power and minimizes lag when you resume typing or mousing. (Battery life of Logitech keyboards is based on a calculation of an estimated two million keystrokes per year in an office environment; battery life for Logitech mice may vary based on user and computing conditions.)

First introduced in August 2009, the tiny Logitech Unifying receiver is so small it can stay in your laptop when you’re moving around. And, a single receiver can be paired with up to six Unifying-compatible Logitech keyboards and mice — freeing up valuable USB ports and making it easy to mix, match and add to your existing setup, no matter where you are.

Comfort and Convenience – At Your Fingertips

The low-profile keyboard features Logitech Incurve keys and a cushioned palm rest. Using a concave design, Incurve keys support the shape of your fingertips, while helping guide your fingers to the right keys. In addition, the soft, rounded edges make it easy for your fingers to glide from key to key. The cushioned palm rest gives you a place to rest your hands when you’re not typing. Plus, an LCD dashboard gives you at-a-glance status for Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, Num Lock and battery life.

The comfortable mid-size mouse offers hyper-fast scrolling, which lets you fly through long documents. Or, if you prefer, you can easily shift to precise click-to-click scrolling to navigate lists, slides and image collections. Its sculpted, right-hand shape guides your hand to a naturally comfortable position and places the three customizable thumb buttons within easy reach, so you can move quickly between Web pages or applications (with download of Logitech software). In addition, laser tracking delivers smooth, responsive, and precise cursor control on surfaces that cause problems for optical mice, such as polished or wood-grain tables.

Logitech Advanced 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity delivers the reliability of a cord plus wireless convenience and freedom. Fast data transmission, virtually no delays or dropouts, and 128-bit AES encryption give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your data is protected moving from keyboard to receiver to computer.

The Logitech Wireless Desktop MK710 is available in Singapore for a suggested retail price of S$169.
