The cleanest keyboard going

It doesn't sport fancy mechanical switches, LEDs or movable macro keys like many keyboards sold today; this Logitech is special because it is washable.  You may have seen this product around before but if you haven't you can check out The Inquirer's review here.  The key design is unique looking and functional too as a spill will be directed around the keys and the bit that does get through will exit through the back.  Once you have spilled on the keyboard you just unplug it, take it to the sink and give it a thorough cleansing. Once it has dried you can plug it back in and get back to what you were doing before your beverage took a nose dive.  This may not be the sturdiest design or the best type of keys you have encountered though at $40 you really shouldn't expect that from this board, instead enjoy having the cleanest keyboard in the neighbourhood.

"Pulling the Logitech keyboard out of the box, the first thing you'll notice is its bright blue underbelly that we assume is meant to connote the keyboard's friendly relationship with water. Lined around the edges on the back are drain holes, for spilled liquids or cleaning water to run out of."

Interesting it is marketted as washable, I have been washing my keyboards in the sink for over a decade. That include wired, wireless, mechanical or membrane. (usually membrane, I have not had a mechanical KB in a long time).

Remove power if necessary, wash in sink. Shake out all water, leave tilted for a couple of days and your good to go.

KB with LCDs in them I might be a little more careful of, but everything is water safe if there is no electricity going through it :)

Just bought this keyboard a couple of days ago. It's nice so far, I miss not having all those extra buttons (volume controls especially), but it feels fairly solid, looks very "Apple-esque" (if you're into the whole "technology and options scare me", minimalistic design style) and like anything Logitech makes, just works...delivers what you expect and does it brilliantly.

I'd love it if Logitech made an extended version of this, with media control buttons and maybe even a touch pad ala. the K400 to be used as a backup mouse.

I would love to throw everything in the dishwasher. Like my laptop, mouse, keyboard and not have to worry about anything.
Maybe even my monitor if i can fit it in there. Sanitize everything and know that all the sweat, crumbs and everything else is gone. Great for kids and chocolate putting.

Maybe with cell phones also.
i am seeing this could become a trend.
Washable electronics. inside and out.
Dust free, germ free, ect.
