Logitech K350 Review
Logitech Wireless Keyboard K350 offers a keyboard that is slightly curved and contoured. It could be only for typists with sore wrists and tendons. But while we like the roomy keyboard design, padded armrests, and various programmable hotkeys, we are disappointed with the cheap taste of the button itself. You also need to warm yourself to the wave-like form factor.
The K350 is one of the most massive keyboards I have ever tested. Indeed, if you extend your hind legs two steps to full height (which supports the keyboard to 8 degrees), the keyboard rises to a total height of 2.5 inches. It is so high that it blocks my keyboard tray from slipping back to my desk. Fortunately, the second step of the two legs that can be stretched only raises the keyboard 4 degrees, shaving half an inch from the overall height.
Besides its impressive height, the K350 also offers a padded armrest. The keyboard is slightly curved and contoured in a waveform, making a pair of dips where A, S, D, F, & J, K, L, also semicolon buttons sit. Logitech says what is called “Comfort Wave Design” is intended to “support your actual and varied finger length.” We will learn the right feel of the keyboard in no time.
The K350 keyboard connects to the PC via the included USB Unifying Receiver, a wireless 2.4GHz USB dongle, which is connected and works instantly without the need for drivers. The K350 wireless connection never fell or stuttered during my test, and quickly reconnected after sleeping after a period of inactivity.
While Logitech says the K350 will only work with Windows PCs, anecdotally, it is also connected to my iMac. Because there is no Mac version of the SetPoint Logitech software, however, Mac users will not be able to customize the K350 hotkey.
The nuances of typing
If the K350 keyboard works for you, it might be a matter of taste. I find the contoured design to be rather exciting and distracting, although I might get used to it over time. That said, a slight curve in the overall keyboard shape does not help keep your wrist at a more straight and comfortable angle. Your experience with the Comfortable Wave Design from Logitech can vary, so I encourage you to try it directly to decide if it’s suitable.
As for the keys themselves, they are disappointing considering the price of the keyboard. While the carved design of the key makes discovery easy, the key cover feels empty and inexpensive, and there is quite a lot of clap sound when typed as you type. On the plus side, the K350 buttons boast a solid tactile protrusion in the middle of each keystroke, along with a pretty spring rebound.
Large, airy, happy hotkey and ergonomically minded, the Logitech K350 Wireless Keyboard can be a ticket for Windows users whose delicate fingers need to rest. That said, we hope the hard key feels bigger.
- Loud, cheap-feeling keys
- Contoured keyboard design won’t be for everyone
- Curved keyboard design helps to keep wrists straight
- Padded palm rest
- Plenty of hotkeys and programmable keys
Conclusion > The Logitech Wireless Keyboard K350’s slightly curved, the contoured keyboard could be just the thing for typists with aching wrists & tendons. But while we love the keyboard’s design and an array of programmable hotkeys, we’re disappointed by the cheap feel of the keys themselves.
