The Unifying System

To make things easy for owners of wireless devices from Logitech, the company developed a USB connector that can incorporate them and unify the signal reception. Just download the software and it will detect the devices. Unfortunately, as we pointed out, the Unifying unit only works with other wireless peripherals from Logitech: it gave our wireless headset from Creative a cold shoulder.

The K800 installation performed as a typical plug-and-play device. Once we plugged the Unifying unit on an available USB port, the keyboard was up and running.
