Logitech has been known for creating great peripherals, and we have been using their products for years. Today, we’re looking at a variety of Logitech products that we have added to our desk setup to improve our productivity, creative, and work from home experience.

The entire body of the keyboard is also constructed from a single metal plate for extra stability and increased build quality.
The smart function keys on the MX Mini include a dictation key, emoji key, and a mute/unmute button for your microphone.
