The Logitech Signature K650 has a unique mix of time-saving and productivity-enhancing features that you won’t find anywhere else. And it’s all of these characteristics that set this keyboard apart.
It’s also very cheap, costing approximately the same as many of the best budget keyboards on the market. However, many of the keyboards in that price range are pared down and barebones, with only one or two functionalities. So what Logitech has accomplished here is rather astounding.
The Logitech Signature K650 weighs around 700g and is compact enough to fit in a backpack. However, given that this is a full-sized keyboard with an attached palm rest, its overall footprint isn’t tiny. It has dimensions of 193.5 x 457.3 x 24mm.
While the dedicated media buttons at the top of the keyboard are a great addition, the function keys make this keyboard stand out. For example, we appreciated the ability to mute or unmute our microphone while on a video conversation rather than having to use the mouse pointer for hunting for the mute button on Zoom.
The Logitech Signature K650 Price and Availability
Many cheap keyboards are available; however, many are of poor quality. However, a handful provides outstanding value, and the Logitech Signature K650 is one of them, priced at $49/ AU$89.
The Logitech Signature K650’s keys may not provide the same tactile feel as more expensive mechanical keyboards, but they are still enjoyable to use.
Of course, they’re a little soft – they’re not mechanical, but they’re responsive. Furthermore, we have no trouble striking the proper keys because they are somewhat elevated at the corners and edges.
The palm rest isn’t comfy. It barely supports the edge of our palm since it is less than two inches thick. It’s also tilted down, so wrists can’t quite reach it. This implies that there is no wrist support unless we move the keyboard away from the edge of the desk so that our forearms rest on the desk – and even then, we are just angling our wrists and hands.
Of course, we didn’t expect a comfortable palm rest for the price. However, the one integrated into this keyboard only takes up desk space while delivering no practical utility. That is a significant disadvantage, but it is one of the few.
The Logitech Signature K650 has long battery life. You may use two AA batteries for up to 36 months before they need to be replaced. While it isn’t rechargeable, needing to replace the two batteries every three years or so isn’t too bad for the environment.
The Logitech Signature K650 promises incredible value, not only because of its low price. It has features that can make a significant impact on day-to-day productivity routines. Fortunately, it’s one major drawback; the built-in palm rest does not distract from the entire experience.
Depending on your use, the battery life may even outlast your computer, and the typing experience will please anyone who isn’t searching for a mechanical keyboard. There is no better value for less than $50.
