When it comes to computers and electronics, you pretty much only have three color choices: black, grey or white. Sure, some laptops come in cute colors nowadays, but for unique designs people have to rely on purchasing skins and sticking them on the surface of whatever they want to decorate. It looks like someone was listening to the consumer over at Logitech, because today they unveiled a new line of computer accessories in bright colors and fun designs: the Color Collection.
Here are the four products that make up the Logitech Color Collection:
Logitech® HD Webcam.
Smoother. Sharper. Richer. Clearer. Logitech® Fluid Crystal™ Technology: it’s what makes a Logitech webcam better. It’s smoother video, sharper pictures, richer colors and clearer sound in real-world conditions. Your friends and family will see you in lifelike detail with 3-megapixel photos. You can be heard loud and clear thanks to a built-in microphone that reduces background noise.
Logitech® Wireless Keyboard.
The Logitech® Wireless Keyboard K360 is offered in bright, juicy colors and layered designs that allow you to blend your digital life with your personal style. Choose from floral spirals to fingerprint flowers and everything in between while you type comfortably, save space, and express your individuality. It features a three-year battery life and is equipped with six hot keys and 12 programmable F-Keys for instant access to your favorite apps, folders and Web pages. And with Logitech Advanced 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity, you get the reliability of a cord with wireless convenience and freedom.
Logitech® Portable Lapdesk.
Keep cool and comfortable—and use your mouse—everywhere you use your laptop. It protects your legs from laptop heat—and lets you sit naturally—so you can stay cool and comfortable for hours. No table, no problem—a retractable mouse pad means you can use your mouse anywhere. It’s thin and lightweight enough to slip into your laptop bag or sleeve so you can take it with you everywhere
Logitech® Wireless Mouse
The Logitech®Wireless Mouse M325 is offered in bright, juicy colors and layered designs that allow you to blend your digital life with your personal style. Choose from floral spirals to fingerprint flowers and everything in between. Designed for how you use the Web, our newest micro-precise scrolling makes everything you love to do online easier. Its feel-good, contoured shape and textured grips help keep your hand happy—even after long hours. And with up to 18 months of battery life, it virtually eliminates the hassle of changing batteries.
I had the opportunity to review the laptop desk, wireless mouse and wireless keyboard -- and I think they're great! The Blades of Grass design goes perfectly with the kids' laptop (which is grey, with lime green edges), and the kids love having the wireless mouse, because the touchpad on their laptop is overly sensitive. It's a bit smaller than a regular mouse, which is perfect for the kids, fine with me, and somewhat inconvenient for Alfie.
This is the first wireless mouse we've ever owned, and at first I was worried it wouldn't be responsive -- but you can't tell the difference in performance from a wired mouse, and it has the added benefits of portability. You can even use it while sitting on a sofa if you pair it with the Logitech Portable Lapdesk, which has a slide-out mouse pad. The lapdesk is great if you use your laptop on your lap for long periods of time, because it shields your legs from the heat generated by the laptop.
The wireless keyboard has similar characteristics-- somewhat smaller than a full-sized keyboard, as responsive as a wired keyboard, stylish and sleek and fun.
The only thing I'm sad about is that the lapdesk does not come in the Blades of Grass design. The Venetial Swirls design is nice, but it would have been great to have all my new Logitech peripherals coordinated, in the same design.
The Bottom Line
Logitech's new Color Collection series of computer and laptop peripherals are unique, stylish, fun, high quality, and affordable. They're a great way to express your personal sense of style!
