Logitech Ergo K860 keyboard, the very definition of ergonomics
Logitech is a well-known Swiss company in the world of computer and workstation accessories. A very popular brand in the world of gaming, video game competitions. Which are now organized in professional circuits in which the endowments are important and the competition fierce. And who says competition says performance. This is why, at the request of the champions of the digital world in particular, Logitech is releasing more and more ergonomic models.
Ergonomic office accessories are designed to spare any physical damage (in particular, musculoskeletal disorders) to a user spending more and more time in front of his screen. Like the Logitech Ergo K860 keyboard, designed with the well-being of the user in mind. As well on a classic desk as on a sit-stand. So let’s pass this keyboard through the caudine forks of Ergonoma. Let’s go.
The ultimate ergonomic keyboard
Made from matte black, curved plastic, the Logitech Ergo K860 features an eye-catching design. It was designed with the perpetual idea of reducing muscle tension. It has a large wrist rest below the keyboard. In addition, all the keys are arranged in a triangular fashion. This allows the wrists not to come together. As a result, the gap between the arms is also constant. This prevents tension and pressure points in the back muscles. The keys are slightly split, which has two advantages. First, it reduces muscle tension on your wrists and forearms. Then, it considerably reduces the noise emitted by typing (which reduces hearing damage, a potential danger in the professional world). For user to feel the contact with the keyboard, the keys have been stabilized.
Another great advantage of the Logitech Ergo K860 is its degree of tilt (4 to 7 degrees). In addition to allowing it to adapt perfectly to the user’s posture, this makes it suitable for both a regular desk and a sit-stand. Desks sitting upright, the benefits of which we also keep telling you.
The Logitech Ergo K860 is finally equipped with 3 switch buttons. This allows you to pair the keyboard with three different devices simultaneously and press a key to switch between them. For example, you can connect the keyboard to a computer, smartphone, and tablet.
To optimize the effects of the wrist rest, it is made up of 3 superimposed layers of fabric. A half-millimeter top layer of knitted fabric, with a durable, stain resistant coating. Then a 2mm support layer of high density foam. Finally comes the comfort foam, made of a 4mm thick memory foam.
Price and technical characteristics
The Logitech Ergo K860 is available at a price of 112 euros on Amazon. It is a battery powered wireless Bluetooth keyboard. Opinions seem unanimous (4.5 stars out of 171 opinions left in France), highlighting in particular the pleasant and quiet aspect of its use. However, some users point out that it takes about a week to adapt from classic keyboards.
A keyboard highly appreciated, especially for the comfort provided by its inclination and curvature. Also through silence, office workers are increasingly aware of noise pollution. The price may seem a little high, but the benefit of its use should be calculated according to the time you spend working in front of the screen.
