Logitech Australia introduce 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 is debuting with three new products: the Logitech Wireless Keyboard K340, Logitech Marathon Mouse M705 and the Logitech Wireless Mouse M505.
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) it can be left in a 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 lounge, favorite peripherals are ready to work whenever, wherever the user is.
Setting up the Unifying receiver and Logitech peripherals is fast and easy: just plug in the receiver and the mouse or keyboard is recognised in seconds. When more devices need to be added, the Unifying software walks the user through a few steps to get the new device up and running.
Logitech Wireless Keyboard K340
The Logitech Wireless Keyboard K340 is Unify compatible and features Logitech Advanced 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity, which gives 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 peace of mind of knowing that data is safe from receiver to computer. Designed to fit any space, the compact K340 won’t take up a lot of room on a desk and is easy to store or be taken away. Yet its full-size layout and number pad put all the keys you need within reach. The keyboard is always ready when needed thanks to up to three years of battery life. To give more comfort, the keyboard’s low profile design helps place hands and wrists in a more neutral position. Plus, the quiet, responsive keys feel great and barely make a sound.
Logitech Marathon Mouse M705
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 the hand.
Logitech Wireless Mouse M505
The Logitech Wireless Mouse M505 helps 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 responsive, precise cursor control on surfaces where optical mice fail. And the ergonomically designed, ambidextrous shape with soft rubber grips conforms to the hand to be naturally comfortable, yet the mouse is compact enough to take with the user. 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.
