Logitech introduces Unifying Receiver for convenience of use with multiple wireless keyboards and mice
You can pair up to six Logitech wireless mice and keyboard with the manufacturer’s latest Unifying Receiver. Also making their debut with the announcement are the Logitech Wireless Keyboard K350, Wireless Keyboard K340, Marathon Mouse M705 and Wireless Mouse M505.
SINGAPORE – 15 October 2009 — Today, Logitech introduced a convenient and clutter-free way for notebook users to connect wireless keyboards and mice to their computers – the Logitech® Unifying receiver. So small that it can stay in the laptop when you’re moving around, a single Logitech Unifying receiver can be paired with up to six compatible Logitech mice and keyboards – freeing up valuable USB ports and enabling you to mix, match and add to your existing setup, no matter where you are. The Logitech Unifying receiver debuts with four new products: the Logitech® Wireless Keyboard K350, Logitech® Wireless Keyboard K340, Logitech® Marathon Mouse M705 and the Logitech® Wireless Mouse M505.
Plug it, Forget it, Add to it
The Unifying receiver—based on the groundbreaking design of the industry-first Logitech Plug-and-Forget Nano-receiver—is so tiny (it protrudes only 8 mm from the edge of your computer) you can leave it in your laptop when it’s time to pack up and go. Whether moving around the office, traveling for business, checking e-mail at a local café or chatting online with family from the sofa, your favorite peripherals are ready to work whenever, wherever you are.
Setting up the Unifying receiver and your Logitech peripherals is fast and easy: just plug in the receiver and the mouse or keyboard is recognized in seconds. When you want to add more devices, the Unifying software (available for download at www.logitech.com/unifying) walks you through a few steps to get your new device up and running.
Both new keyboards that are Unifying compatible feature Logitech® Advanced 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity, which gives you the reliability of a cord plus wireless convenience and freedom. Fast data transmission, virtually no delays or dropouts, and 128-bit AES encryption for security give you the peace of mind of knowing that your data is safe from receiver to computer.
Logitech Wireless Keyboard K350
Featuring Logitech’s distinctive Wave design and Constant Curve layout, the Logitech Wireless Keyboard K350 guides your hands into just the right position and conforms naturally to your fingers. A cushioned palm rest helps position hands comfortably and properly on the keyboard. Together, they can help you type with ease and confidence, but without forcing you to re-learn typing on an unfamiliar layout. And your keyboard is always ready when you need it – offering up to three years of battery.
Logitech Wireless Keyboard K340
Designed to fit your space and your life, the compact Logitech Wireless Keyboard K340 won’t take up a lot of room on your desk and is easy to store or take with you. Yet its full-size layout and number pad put all the keys you need within reach. Your keyboard is always ready when you need it thanks to up to three years of battery life. To give you more comfort, the keyboard’s low profile design helps place your hands and wrists in a more neutral position. Plus, the quiet, responsive keys feel great and barely make a sound.
Logitech Marathon Mouse M705
So you can power on—from home to work and on the road—the Logitech Marathon Mouse M705 can go up to three full years between battery changes using less than half the power of comparable mice (tested against popular battery-powered optical and laser wireless mice commercially available as of March 1, 2009). With hyper-fast scrolling, you’ll fly through long documents to find what you need in a flash. Laser tracking ensures smooth, responsive cursor control. And the sculpted, right-hand shape naturally conforms to your hand.
Logitech Wireless Mouse M505
The Logitech Wireless Mouse M505 helps you get more done, more comfortably, in more places. With up to 15 months of battery life, you’ve got the power to stay productive, while laser tracking gives you responsive, precise cursor control on surfaces where optical mice fail. And the ergonomically designed, ambidextrous shape with soft rubber grips conforms to your hand to be naturally comfortable, yet the mouse is compact enough to take with you.
Battery life of Logitech keyboards is based on a calculation of an estimated 2 million keystrokes per year in an office environment; battery life for Logitech mice may vary based on user and computing conditions.
