Pros: Maintains Mac aesthetic, wireless, battery life, comfortable hand position
Cons: Price, components do not match quality of Logitechs best PC mice & keyboards
Summary: I am using the s530 Mac keyboard and mouse to write this review. This mouse and keyboard were a step up from the wired (1 button) mouse and wired keyboard that came with our G5 Imac. The keyboard and mouse have been in use for 6 months and are both still on their first set of batteries. I used the unit with the dock for the fist few months. I erroneously thought that the signals from the mouse and keyboard would not reach the back of the Imac. I was wrong, it works perfectly just plugging the USB receiver into the back of the Imac. That?s one less wire on the desk. The keyboard does not have quite as nice a key feel as the wired apple keyboard or Logitech?'s best PC keyboards but a slight compromise on the ?"clickiness?" of the keyboard is a worthwhile tradeoff for wireless. The keyboard has a sloped front and I find the hand position is more comfortable than with the Apple. The sloped front is silver painted plastic, which is not as comfortable as some of the PC Logitech and Microsoft devices which have hand rests that are covered with padding or softer materials. I have not found any lag time with either the mouse of the keyboard. If you want to keep the Mac aesthetic and go wireless there are not very many options. This keyboard set is quite a bit more expensive than the 530 version for the PC. That being said this keyboard was clearly designed for the Mac with Mac specific buttons. It is not a PC keyboard in white and silver. In my book this justifies the $20 to $30 price increase.
