Logitech Cordless Navigator Duo Keyboard Review


Are you starting to hate your corded components like your keyboard and your mouse? If you are like me chances are you are getting fed up with the keyboard’s cord being a nagging problem. It’s always hanging around and not long enough. It’s the same thing with a corded mouse. They are always getting you mad when you yank the cord because it is getting caught under the table.

Are you building a new HTPC and getting away from traditional computers? Why not go into the future with a keyboard and a mouse combo that is wireless and gives you more freedom from looking at those evil cords dangling above.

Today we are going to take a look at one of Logitech’s many solutions to this corded problem. We are going wireless and let’s say what Logitech has to offer. We are talking about the Logitech Cordless Navigator Duo Keyboard.

The Logitech Cordless Navigator Duo shipped to us via UPS in a corrugated Logitech sample box. Once I opened the box, the Logitech Cordless Navigator Duo is presented in a nice rectangular packaging displaying the keyboard, key features and specifications of this product.

What comes bundled with this keyboard/mouse combo is the following:

  • Cordless Keyboard
  • Cordless Mouse
  • Receiver
  • USB to PS/2 Adaptor
  • 4 AA Batteries
  • Software
  • Quick Start Guide
  • 5 Year Warranty

The Logitech Cordless Navigator Duo’s keyboard has a white color scheme and has the unique features of utilizing easy access keys on the top of the keyboard. These include buttons that control the volume of the computer, go into MSN Messenger service, sleep, and much more.

Shortcut Keys...

The back of the keyboard is where you install the batteries and the hand rest attachment. It’s very easy to install the armrest, as you just need to match the ends and click them into place.

The receiver is obviously for making the mouse wireless. There is a PS/2 to USB connector present for the mouse if you decide to use it. The mouse also blends into the package.


Logitech provides you MouseWare software that includes various options like choosing which buttons on the keyboard are for what item. It is the same software we covered for the MX700 Wireless mouse.

Using it

After a couple of weeks using this setup I can say that it performs very well. It's very easy to set up too.  The only thing you need to do is connect the mouse and your set, the keyboard is automatically read properly by Windows XP.  The keyboard is comfortable and is relatively quiet. It’s quieter than keyboards that I am accustomed to. The unique fast access keys make things more effective. For example, if you want to turn down the sound you would have to go into the Volume settings in Windows. Now you can raise or decrease the volume with a punch of a button. It almost makes you feel lazy and at the same time saves you time. I check my email many times and the email button is really useful.
I found the mouse does its job. It’s a good mouse with some quirks. The mouse did fit my hand well but the scroll wheel was a bit out of reach for me. Also the mouse doesn’t move as fluidly as of different corded optical mice and the MX700 Wireless mouse for that matter. You can tell the difference. With this mouse, you can see on your screen that the tracking is not smooth as other mice.


The Logitech Cordless Navigator Duo Keyboard is a very good setup. Things are comfortable and things work with ease. The easy access buttons help you to manage your time effectively and efficiently.

I rate the Logitech Cordless Navigator Duo Keyboard a…
