Logitech MK270 Review 

The Logitech MK270 keyboard feels predictable and inexpensive. Indeed, the entire keyboard will be flexible if you try to bend it. While the MK270 does not have a palm rest, MK270 has a pair of retractable legs that will support the keyboard at an angle of 8 degrees.
Above the main keyboard, you will find a row of volume keys and special media playback, four hotkeys for Home, E-Mail, PC power, and Calculator. But only three of them can be programmed. Among the options: You can set keys to open web pages or programs, change applications, or set key presses. To customize the key, you must install the aging SetPoint utility from Logitech. Unfortunately, the newer Logitech application, the slicker version only works with the bundled mouse (which we will discuss soon).
Both the MK270 keyboard and the accompanying mouse are connected to the system via a single 2.4GHz USB dongle. The MK270 wireless connection worked flawlessly during my test, with both the keyboard and mouse waking up almost instantly from a delay caused by inactivity.

The MK270 keyboard and mouse natively support Windows devices and Chrome OS. The MK270 will also work with the Mac system, but you won’t be able to adjust any shortcut keys.

While the MK270 key feels empty and cheap – it’s no surprise to have a $ 30 keyboard bundle – the real typing nuance isn’t bad. The key to the membrane style produces a solid protrusion of about half through keystrokes, with a satisfying springy leap and a respectable amount of travel. Discovery is not much of a problem thanks to the spacious keyboard design and buttons that are formed. However, estimate the number of clicks that are enough when you type.

Like the MK270 keyboard, the included mouse (MK185) feels rather light and inexpensive. The ambidextrous mouse comes with a solid plastic handle, a scroll wheel with a light wavy feel and a pair of mouse buttons which is pretty easy to click.

You can program the middle mouse button using the neat Logitech Options application. Instead of using it to open programs, locking the screen, minimizing windows, and setting keystrokes, There is a motion control mode that allows you to trigger a custom function every time you hold down the middle button and scroll up, down, left, or right.

The Bad > Both keyboard and mouse feel cheap, Loud typing, Only three programmable keys, Limited Mac support

The Good > bouncytyping feel, Customizable middle mouse button, Super-easy setup

Conclusion > You will never mistake the feeling of typing Logitech MK270 for a pricier mechanical model. The Keys on this wireless keyboard feels pretty good regarding its low price, and the included mouse runs above and beyond with a programmable center button. However, those who chose MK270 had to be satisfied with a cheap design and relatively hard typing.
