Logitech developed new Vista gadgets: a status indicator for caps lock, num lock and scroll lock; a typing-speed indicator; and an error-rate tracker that calculates the number of times the user hits the backspace key.
The keypad includes an LCD display, a num lock key (unsynchronized with the computer for better user control), a battery-low indicator and an on/off switch, and is the first keypad to include a hideaway compartment to tuck the wireless receiver when not in use.
