Logitech Comfort Wave 450 Keyboard Review
The difference is that the reviewed 450 has a wired USB connection, a slightly different design, and lacks some multimedia buttons, whereas the K350 is a wireless keyboard for multimedia oriented consumers.
Both models have a unique curved “wave” design of the keyboard itself, with a raised area in its middle for more comfortable wrists position and shorter distance between the buttons and fingers. Also, CTRL, ALT, and Space are bigger than on standard keyboards. However, the ergonomic design isn’t as extreme as in some other curved keyboards and it’s easy to get used to it, if you had previously used a standard flat keyboard.
Additional ergonomic features of the Comfort Wave 450 are a two level height adjustment (4 and 8 degrees) of tilt legs located on both front and rear of the keyboard, as well as a pleasant padded rubberized palm rest.
Since its a business keyboard, Logitech has excluded dedicated previous and next track buttons, but still on the top there are media player launcher, play/pause, volume control buttons, browser, mail, search, and My Computer keys, as well as a calculator launcher on the right end of the device. LED indicators are located in the center. Unfortunately, quick-launch buttons are not programmable.
With the palm rest attached, dimensions of the Wave 450′s footprint is 47cm x 26cm (18.5 x 10.2 inches). It comes with a 5.9-feet USB cable. According to product specifications, its long-lasting keys can endure up to 10 million strokes.
In my opinion, the tactile feedback is optimal, the button noise is low, and the build quality is excellent.
With its price of around $30, the Logitech Comfort Wave 450 is a good choice if you want a high-quality ergonomic keyboard at an affordable price.
