Logitech Illuminated Keyboard Launched

Logitech Illuminated Keyboard Launched

You may have grand visions of owning an Optimus Maximus but we'd caution that there are likely more practical uses of your hard-earned cashola, rather than splurging on frivelous things like a keyboard with independent displays for each key.  And with pricing well north of $1800, you can't be serious, right?  For a keyboard?  Hello??  We don't care how many languages it can be programmed to use.  It better make margaritas and then some, for that kind of money.  How about something a bit more down to earth, like a this sleek new keyboard from Logitech?  Oh yeah, its keys light up too and it's only 79 bucks.

FREMONT, Calif. — Sept. 2, 2008 — To help you find the keyboard that best matches your needs – and style – Logitech (SWX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today introduced three new keyboards, including the Logitech® Illuminated Keyboard, which offers an optimized backlight experience, Logitech PerfectStroke™ key system and Logitech’s thinnest design ever.

 



Logitech Illuminated Keyboard
The Logitech Illuminated Keyboard makes typing easy – even in the dark. To optimize existing backlight technology, Logitech combined microlens reflectors, a multilayer painting process and laser etching – creating a backlight experience that is brighter, sharper and easier to read. Whether you're typing an e-mail or chatting with a friend, the adjustable backlight gives you just the right amount of light. 
With its transparent frame, the ultra-thin Illuminated Keyboard (.37 inches or 9.3 mm from base to frame) adds an elegant touch to any desk. Balancing form and function, the keyboard offers a full-size key layout (including a number pad), soft-touch palm rest and a full row of F-keys, as well as media- and volume-control keys for instant command of your entertainment.

PerfectStroke Key System
The Logitech Illuminated Keyboard and the diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks feature the Logitech PerfectStroke key system, which provides a typing experience that’s comfortable, fluid and silent. PerfectStroke is designed to create longer key travel – 3.2 mm compared to 2.2 mm – than that of typical notebook keyboards; as a result, the distance your fingers have to travel to activate a key is optimized for your comfort. Micro-scissors distribute force evenly across key surfaces – even if you strike the edge of a key, the key stroke still feels the same.

And you wanted to drop how much for a fancy-pants keyboard that lights up?  Don't make us point at you and laugh, OK?  Public ridicule is always so harsh.

Not a big fan of the laptop style keys. Very nice though. Love the backlights

I've been in the market for a new keyboard for quite some time now. This one just might have my name on it.

Very nice looking, but I only go for the ergonomic keyboards myself. Function over form.
