Yesterday Logitech rolled out one of its thinnest keyboards ever. The Logitech Illuminated Keyboard has a 9.3mm profile and a sleek, minimalist design. The keyboard has a transparent frame and as the name of the product suggests, the characters on all of the keys are illuminated.
The Logitech Illuminated Keyboard makes typing easy – even in the dark. To optimize existing backlight technology, Logitech combined microlens reflectors, a multilayer painting process and laser etching – creating a backlight experience that is brighter, sharper and easier to read. Whether you're typing an e-mail or chatting with a friend, the adjustable backlight gives you just the right amount of light.
With its transparent frame, the ultra-thin Illuminated Keyboard (.37 inches or 9.3 mm from base to frame) adds an elegant touch to any desk. Balancing form and function, the keyboard offers a full-size key layout (including a number pad), soft-touch palm rest and a full row of F-keys, as well as media- and volume-control keys for instant command of your entertainment.
The Logitech Illuminated Keyboard and the diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks feature the Logitech PerfectStroke key system, which provides a typing experience that’s comfortable, fluid and silent. PerfectStroke is designed to create longer key travel – 3.2 mm compared to 2.2 mm – than that of typical notebook keyboards; as a result, the distance your fingers have to travel to activate a key is optimized for your comfort. Micro-scissors distribute force evenly across key surfaces – even if you strike the edge of a key, the key stroke still feels the same.
The Logitech Illuminated Keyboard will be available in October for $79.99.
