Review: The Cordless Desktop S530 Laser for Mac by Logitech


Posted by Lab RatDue to a rather one-sided altercation between my 2-year-old son and my Apple pro keyboard, I recently found myself in the market for a new one (keyboard that is, not son). I knew from recent events that I wanted a wireless solution, as...

Logitech Cordless Desktop S 530 Laser for Macintosh Review and Prices


Macintosh owners don't often find input devices specifically designed for their systems. Usually, they're plugging in USB mice and keyboards made for Windows machines and are forced to track down a Macintosh driver.

Stylish design, comfortable, can take mouse on the road

Mouse for right-handers only

Review: Logitech Cordless Desktop s530


Logitech's Cordless Desktop S530 Laser is a winner.

easy installation, cordless operation, one-button access to multiple functions, multi-function mouse

no keyboard USB ports, mouse does not configure for left-handed mouse users, levered keyboard can present users with wrist pain

I’m a sucker for products that work as advertised. The beauty is that you know what to expect going in, and there are no nasty surprises or “gotchas.” Logitech’s Cordless Desktop S530 Laser is one of those products. And I’m pleased to say it’s ear

Logitech Cordless Desktop S530 Laser Mouse + Keyboard Set


As with several other iPod/iTunes-related items we're adding to the site today, Logitech's Cordless Desktop S530 Laser Mouse + Keyboard Set for Mac ($100) is an accessory that we liked enough to briefly review, but have opted not to rate for now...

A sleek, Mac-matching wireless keyboard and laser mouse set with easy, dedicated iTunes (and other Mac) buttons, featuring an impressive degree of access to core media features from either peripheral. Both accessories are comfortable in the hand, and...

Wireless transmission range is unimpressive by comparison with existing alternatives ; other than laser in mouse and battery life, core included technologies aren't as impressive for the dollar as their packaging

Similarly, Logitech's included MX600 laser mouse feels much better than your average mouse, in equal parts due to comfortable sculpting and its laser technology, which we found precise when the whole system was functioning properly. It also includes...

"Great Value For Your Money"


What I like the most is its attractive matching colors and design which looks very aesthetic on my desk. The hot keys layout and configuration are excellent. The versatility and mobility allows a faster and more comfortable work flow. Very reasonable...

Mac colors match. Excellent Hot keys function and layout. Battery life. Mouse ergonomics and hot keys.

Sometimes system does not see it so needs to re-connect. Keyboard little noisy. Unable to find matching photoshop key shortcut cover.

Consumer review by:

"Excellent BUY!!!"


This works great with an Intel Mac and looks great. It is a phenomenal value when compared to what you will get by purchasing the Apple mighty mouse and wireless keyboard. Everything on both the mouse and the keyboard can be configured to your liking...

Excellent form factor, great response on keyboard and mouse, fantastic hot buttons for easy access to mac programs

keyboard is a bit noisy

Consumer review by:

"Functions well; feels cheap."


I bought this keyboard and mouse set last summer. I like the design of the keyboard. It is definitely more comfortable than the stock keyboard that came with my white iMac. The special keys on the sides of the keyboard are handy. While the mouse is...

Comfortable design; useful special keys; attractive, Mac-like aesthetics

Cheap-feeling, noisy keys; mediocre keyboard feel; mouse scrolls too slow.

Consumer review by:

"Such a great replacement!!"


I absolutely love this set for so many reasons. First, it looks great on my desk and matches nicely. The keyboard types way better than a Mac keyboard and the mouse is actually comfortable to use. There are a ton of well-placed shortcut keys on the...

They look awesome, the shortcut keys rule, fully customizable, comfortable, battery life

Everynow and then the software doesn't see my mouse

Product Specifications

Designed specifically for your Mac, the Cordless Desktop S 530 Laser includes a comfortable ultra-flat keyboard and a high-performance laser mouse. The stylish white and silver design perfectly matches both consumer and pro Macs. The one-touch controls on the Cordless Desktop S 530 Mac have been specifically designed to work with iTunes and iPhoto, giving you instant access to your music and photos. Dedicated keys launch Safari, Mail, Spotlight, or any other application with a single press. And all direct-access keys can be easily reprogrammed with the included software. The great styling of the keyboard is matched by the outstanding quality and feel of the Logitech typing experience. Delivering maximum comfort through unique design, this ultra-flat keyboard is less than 3/4" (19 mm) high to minimize wrist extension, and the built-in palm rest provides added convenience. The sculpted right-handed mouse follows the natural shape of your hand and delivers outstanding comfort. Logitech's High Performance Laser tracking delivers pixel-precise navigation on virtually any surface. The innovative Tilt Wheel lets you scroll pages top-to-bottom or side-to-side. Five re-programmable buttons let you control volume and web browser back and forward without taking your hand off the mouse. Sophisticated battery management technologies mean that batteries last up to 6 months, or even longer! Both keyboard and mouse include convenient LED battery level indicators. When flashing, the LED gives approximately ten days' notice before batteries need changing. Additionally, the mouse features an on/off switch to further extend battery life.
