Outline

Illuminate your typing experience, night or day, with the Logicool Illuminated Keyboard. Bright, laser-etched, backlighted keys make typing easy, even in the dark. The ultra-thin, 9.3 mm profile provides a cutting-edge, minimalist design that adds elegance to any desk. The PerfectStroke key system, with precision micro-scissors, delivers more key travel than typical notebook keyboards, making every stroke comfortable, fluid, and silent. And a soft-touch palm rest and full-size key layout help you type comfortably, even after extended use.

Evaluation

By improving the backlight stronger than before and resolving a problem of low-visibility, the product represents an universal design. A design considering the key-touch feature on a thin body creates a sense of trust. In addition, a design focused on simplicity and user-friendliness in the key operation part with hands is favorable.
