Just bought this myself and thought the following info would help others catch this bargain!

The mouse, keyboard and noise cancelling speakerphone are all very good, although the PC120 headphones are only average. The mouse is a little weighty but still good enough for gaming with. The keyboard has shortcuts ofr skype, however I havent install the Logitech Setpoint drivers to see if I can remap them to Microsoft Live Messenger.

Strangly, the Logitech 120 PC headset alone is retailing at £13.95 at Novatech (although can be found cheaper elsewhere)!

A noteworthy benefit of this set is the lack of wires. There is only one USB connection from the speakerphone unit to the PC. This speakerphone unit provides wireless connectivity to the keyboard and mouse and also provides the microphone and mono speaker..The headphones plug into the side of the unit to give stereo - useful for playing games.The aulity of speech playback through the speakerphone is very good, however music does suffer a little (as to be expected) but is certainly better than some of the nasty speakers Ive seen supplied with friends prebuilt PCs.

The USB Audio drivers can be easily selected within MSN Messenger, or any other configurable application (such as audacity). The drivers dont seem to clash with my other soundcard (M-Audio Delta 44) thankfully!

I have Vista 32bit and I plugged this unit in and it worked without any CD installation !

I will have to install SetPoint 4 when I decide I want to configure my keyboard, however I am currently happy with the media and web automatic key assignments. Software updates are available from here: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/433/136&cl=gb,en

I got the MX3200 for the same price posted before it has the same mouse so i will comment on that... it is EXCELLENT! so responsive and you get a search button and zoom buttons too.

with the search button you just highlight some text and press the little search button on the mouse and it will use the search engin of your choice (mines is set as google) and it searches the term for you!

logitech is known for reliability too!

The headphones plug into the keyboard? Doesn't that mean the headphone wire is draped over you desk/keyboard and gets in the way?

Also, what's the positional audio like on the headphones? Obviously it's not going to be up to X-fi or dolby headphone level but is it any use?

Most of the threads on logitech deals have people saying there keyboard has failed after a few years. While that's probably reliable enough for this keyboard where the added 'features' will be out of date in a few years if you're after real reliability there are probably better alternatives out there.

I think they plug into the receiver unit rather than the keyboard.

Price should include £4.95 delivery.q

The headphones pluginto the side of the speakerphone unit, as seen above in one of the pictures.

Positional audio is only reasonable - put it like this I have played CS-Source with it however there is no reason why you could use your existing sound setup for games if you so desired (and the game allows you to choose the sound device). This easycall device will happily coexist with other sound cards but its primary focus for this device is speech. Might be worthwhile looking at another solution tbh.

I've several logitech wireless devices and the only thing that has ever died on me in the past is the ball mechanism in the wireless mice. I also think that you will be able to connect other keyboards to the base unit (assuming its the same 2.4ghz technology).

Awesome deal, will pick one up tonight!
#9
My house is full of Logitech keyboards and there is nothing wrong with their build quality. They're extremely reliable and the first brand I look for. Mind you the Edge keyboard is ludicrously dear...
#10
Worth it just for the mouse. Hopefully I can snag a set at a store :thumbsup:

I did mention that the voucher had expired in my original post.

I have now installed the downloaded v4 software whihc includes the noise cancellation s/w.

Id be interested to hear on other peoples opinion.
The speakerphone unit itself has a high quality mic and speaker, however the person I was chatting to was complaining of slight feedback of her own voice. This could be down to many things, so until I can arrange a suitable test Id be interested in other peoples opinions though.

FWIW, the SKYPE and status buttons on the right hand side of the keyboard can be remapped to MSN or Yahoo.
#16
No problems with feedback for me, excellent call quality, really nice piece of kit.

Had some issues with getting it to work with skype, but found a work around on the internet now it works fine.
#17
Good deal. Can anyone tell me if it would be possible to use the speakerphone as a straightforward desktop mic, as I need one and I don't want to pay extra if I don't have to?
#18
Yeah you can use it like that no problem. Its good quality too, I've got rid of my standalone mic now I have this.
#19
Excellent! Thanks mate.
#20
I bought this yesterday. It's a good package, the only problem with it is the mouse. It seems laggy, and I'm betting the DPI is quite low too.

Does anyone have a fix (I've heard it could be a driver problem, but I can't find the drivers I need anywhere)?
#21
Just wondering - is the keyboard a UK layout keyboard or a US version? Just wondering as looking at the shape of the enter key it seems to be US! Can anyone confirm? The UK enter key is like an upside down L, whereas the US version is a long horisontal strip. Thanks!
#22
Its a UK layout with a full size enter key :)

DPI should be excellent being a laser mouse. No problems at all with mine.

I found quality of Skype calls to be poor (well the people on the other end who I called said it was poor).
#26
PC Pro mag has reviewed the EasyCall desktop as part of a group review of Voip phones and was one of the few to come out with a creditable maximum five star rating. They were particularly taken with its ability to conference call. Their budget buy was an HP "Internet Handset" but as this was only a phone and a wired one at that, I don't think it takes any of the shine off the Logitech offering. Review appers in the August!! PC Pro, so probably not in the shops yet.
#27
this is a great deal, I was looking at them last year and they were (on ebuyer at least) around £70+, very tempted to get this, much prefer logitech over MS stuff.
#28
I can confirm that everything in that set is working with the ps3. The keyboard, the mouse as well as the headset.

Anyone know the range of the mouse and keyboard, I am looking for a mouse/keyboard et to use with linux on my PS3 that sits about 3=4 meters away. You can also pick these up for £24:99 from currys.

£72:99 from play.com :shock:

The range is very good :thumbsup:

I was expecting 1mto 1.5m max but it does seem to work upto about 3m away. Not quite bluetooth, but far enough for me to use it in the lounge with my media PC.

Just a quick correction of myself here - I read the review in Computer Shopper, August not PC Pro. In case anyone is looking for it. Pull yourself together Omeganut ;-)
#32
Does anyone have one of these? are you happy with it?

i only ask because i got the MS pro kits and its the most frustrating things ive ever bought, it only started working when i uninstalled the drivers, the mouse and keyboard drop out ALL the time, and it makes that annoying BEEP as if im pressing too many keys at once when im only holding control say...

That has taken all my faith in wireless products away, how does this one compare?

I have one and it is very good for the price. The mouse is worth the money alone. I dont mind the keyboard - the keys have a good feel to them, but I personnally am used to a slightly deeper wrist rest. However people have complained about hitting the side mounted control buttons on other desk objects and firing up appications, but this has not been a problem for me.

The wireless is faultless and does connect to other older Logitech wireless transmitter units ( i.e. the white keyboard kit of the Logitech LX501 on a Windows 2000 machine).

The easycall also has a better range than the LX501 for some reason.

I use the Easycall bundle with Windows Vista and the keyboard/mouse worked out of the box without any driver installation.

However if you want to configure the buttons or use the noise cancelling speaker phone then you will have to install the drivers off the website ( the latest - see my previous post for location).

I use the device with MSN Messenger Live (or whatever it is now called) and have had a few problems with adjusting the sound levels on the speaker phone. It seems if the volume is too high then people on the other end experience feedback, and if it is dropped then the remote person sounds too quiet. If I use the supplied headphones then the feedback does vanish.

Other people dont seem to have the same problem as me. But I do have a MAudio sounds card (+drivers) in my PC, so dont know if this could be the cuase of any problems. Still its not a big hasstle.

Overall, however, I am still please I bought the kit as the mouse / keyboard is well worth £25 and the keyboard keys are completely configurable (even the useless SKYPE button!)

I'm very happy with my one of these, the speaker phone is excellent and I've had no problems with sound quality.

The mouse and keyboard are of very good quality and even the headset sounds good.
