I can always appreciate a nice set! ;)
For the last time, Logitech, STOP BUNDLING MICE AND KEYBOARDS!
All their nice mice are sold as stand alone products, but very few of their nice keyboards are. None that I want. I have a small mountain of Logitech mice at home, and I don't need another. But I DO need another keyboard. One that's stylish, featureful, and wireless.
As good looking as this board is, I could never use it after having experienced, high quality mechanical keyswitch boards. Now, if Logitech started building boards with Cherry Browns or Capacitive swtiches like the Topres, that would be a different story, because they sure can build some good looking hardware.

That's not necessarily true. I think the 5500 is a nice set, combining two very good general purpose units; the MX Revolution and essentially a more office-like cousin of the G15 (with a monochrome lcd), while both being bluetooth. Bundles are great because they use the same wireless receiver.
Don't get me wrong though, I do agree with you that the BEST offerings are single units. I wish they'd make a bundle with say the G15 and the G7/MX Rev, or something of the like. Buying them separately costs essentially the same as the aforementioned bundle...and I always end up saying "I wish I could have THAT keyboard with that [other bundle's] mouse". They havn't quite keyed in on the perfect couple sets yet, but I imagine they will soon.
Personally, I'd like to see the "Wave Pro"-style media KB with an LCD from the G15/MX desktop, coupled with a MX REV using a unified wireless interface...I'd jump all over that. I also think a G7 + MX5500/wireless G15 keyboard would make a great combo. But hell, what do I know...I'm just a consumer. :P
As a user of the MX5500, I dunno sometimes they get it right sometimes they don't. However that being said, to do it again I would likely buy the mouse seperate, and then get a KB aimed more at me. This one is nice, don't get me wrong, just not what I thought it was gonna be, subtle details keep it out of my top 5 fav boards list.
