The Logitech K350 is an old keyboard from around 2004, but it doesn't stop it from being a decent overall keyboard for the office. It has a slightly curved design, which makes it an ergonomic board that may help with wrist strain if you type for long periods. However, it does feel quite a bit cheap and the keystrokes feel very heavy, which seems to be counterproductive with its ergonomic design.

Our Verdict

5.3 Mixed usage

The Logitech K350 is sub-par for mixed usage, as it's only designed as an office keyboard and won't be suitable for any other type of use. It offers good overall ergonomics, but the heavy rubber dome switches, the lack of Bluetooth connection, and the poor overall typing quality make it a poor choice for gaming, use with mobile devices and programming.

Pros
  • Good ergonomic design.
  • Decent build quality.
Cons
  • Heavy and tiring typing experience.
  • Can be loud.
  • Very big design.
4.0 Gaming

The Logitech K350 is a poor choice for gaming. Its switches have a lot of travel to them and require a very high force to get over the tactile bump. Gamers should look elsewhere for their needs.

1.2 Mobile/Tablet

The Logitech K350 can only be used with its USB receiver and isn't designed to be used with mobile devices.

6.8 Office

The Logitech K350 is an acceptable keyboard for office use. It has a comfortable ergonomic design, but the overall typing experience is quite heavy and slow, which might not be the best if you type a lot at work. Also, if you're a heavy typer, this keyboard might be a bit loud for an open-office environment.

4.9 Programming

The Logitech K350 is a poor programming keyboard. Its overall typing quality is sub-par and feels very heavy. You also can't set macros, which is disappointing.

This is a rather big keyboard, especially due to the fact that it has a fixed wrist rest, so it does take a lot of space on your desk.

Build Quality

This keyboard doesn't feel very premium, although it has a decent overall plastic build. The ABS printed keycaps feel rather cheap and the 4-degree angle feet feel a bit loose and flimsy. On the upside, the board doesn't have an alarming amount of flex.

Wrist Rest Fixed

The Logitech K350 has a wave-designed board for better ergonomics. It also has a fixed wrist rest that feels decently comfortable and you have two incline settings: 4 degrees and 8 degrees. However, since the keys have a lot of travel, it makes it quite hard to type for long periods of time and can become fairly tiring.

This keyboard doesn't have backlighting, so it's not ideal to use in dark environments. If you need a keyboard with backlighting, check out the HyperX Alloy Core RGB.

While the Logitech K350 is wireless, it's not the most versatile as you can only pair it up with the Logitech Unifying USB receiver. Although it uses disposable AA batteries, the manufacturer rates the battery life at around three years, though we can't confirm this.

The Logitech K350 wireless keyboard has rubber dome switches that are very heavy and have a lot of travel. The bump to get to the actuation point is very heavy and requires a lot of force, and you'll almost need to bottom-out each key for them to register.

Typing Experience
Typing Quality

The typing experience provided by the Logitech K350 is sub-par. Typing feels very slow and heavy due to the long distance needed to register keystrokes. The keys are somewhat stable, but they can be a bit loud as you can clearly hear the spring coming back up on some keys like Shift and the spacebar. The overall typing experience can get tiring quite quickly.

If you are a light typer, the Logitech K350 is fairly quiet, but since you need to almost bottom-out the keys for them to register, this keyboard might end up being a bit loud for people surrounding you.

The Logitech K350 has limited compatibility. Since this is an old keyboard, it was made for older versions of Windows, and the Window Zoom buttons don't work on Windows 10. Also, on macOS and Linux, all the gray shortcut buttons don't work.

Compared to other keyboards

This keyboard has a slight curved design, but isn't as hard to get used to like the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard or Logitech ERGO K860 Wireless Split Keyboard. It's also quite an older keyboard than the others we've reviewed so far, but is still fairly popular as it provides an easy entry into the ergonomic keyboard world. However, it does feel a bit cheaper than other ergonomic keyboards we've measured and its typing quality isn't up-to-par with more recent models. See our recommendations for the best keyboards, the best keyboards for writers, and the best keyboards for programming.

Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard
SEE PRICE
BestBuy.com

The Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard is a better ergonomic keyboard than the Logitech K350. Its switches require less total travel and don't feel as heavy. Also, it has better ergonomics overall and even comes with a separate NumPad that you can move around. The typing quality is noticeably more satisfactory on the Sculpt than the K350. Other than price, there's no reason to get the K350 over the Sculpt.

Logitech MX Keys
SEE PRICE
Amazon.com

The Logitech MX Keys is a better keyboard than the Logitech K350. It feels noticeably higher-end, can connect up to three devices simultaneously, and can also be used with mobile devices via Bluetooth. Its chiclet keys have a very short pre-travel distance and each key is individually lit. The typing quality is much better on the MX Keys, but some people might like the ergonomic board design of the K350 better.

Logitech ERGO K860 Wireless Split Keyboard
SEE PRICE
Amazon.com

The Logitech ERGO K860 Wireless Split Keyboard is a better ergonomic keyboard than the older Logitech K350. It has a more noticeable curved design, which might take some time to get used to, but it provides an overall better and quieter typing experience. It also has better ergonomics overall and the wrist rest is more comfortable than the K350's.

Adesso Tru-Form 150
SEE PRICE
Amazon.com

The Logitech K350 is a better keyboard than the Adesso Tru-Form 150. It's better built and offers a marginally better typing experience, although it's still sub-par. It also offers better ergonomics since it has incline settings and it's also wireless. On the other hand, the Adesso has backlighting, which the K350 lacks.

Kinesis Freestyle Pro
SEE PRICE
Amazon.com

The Logitech K350 and the Kinesis Freestyle Pro are very different ergonomic keyboards. The K350 has a slightly curved design, while the Kinesis features two halves that you can place however you prefer. On the other hand, the K350 has rubber dome switches that feel very heavy and provide a much less satisfactory typing experience than the mechanical switches of the Kinesis.
