    What I mean by that is this: After doing research on wireless keyboards that would fit my unique needs (Windows compatibility was a must, Mac compatibility would be great, and if it was Bluetooth and could link with my iPad 2 then I was sold) I fell in love with the look of this particular keyboard and I also loved that it was solar powered because I hate having to deal with replacing batteries. I saw that Logitech has two models of the K750 keyboard, a Windows version and a Mac version (which for some reason has a $20 price difference which I didn't understand). I was hoping that the only difference between these two keyboards would be the key layout (i.e. the control, alt/option, command keys versus ctrl, alt, and windows key) but then looking at the specs and reading reviews and such online I found out that the Mac version is not compatible with the Windows OS and the Windows version isn't compatible with the Mac OS. Since I primarily needed the keyboard for my bootcamp partition of Windows 7 I decided to get the Windows version of this keyboard. When I got home and unboxed the keyboard, my Mac OS X was running and I thought it wouldn't hurt to try so I plugged in the USB dongle and a window popped up asking what type of keyboard this was. I went through the short setup and found that this keyboard WORKED JUST FINE ON MAC OS X! And of course it works great on the Windows side as well. Just for peoples information, I have a MacBook Pro (mid 2009) running OS X Lion 10.7.3. I'm not sure if it's my particular setup that allows this keyboard to work with my Mac OS or if Logitech was just saying it won't work to try and get Mac owners to buy both versions of this keyboard (which I did read about people doing). The solar app that you can download of course works great on the Windows side, but you can also download it for the Mac and it works fine. Some of the function keys don't work on the Mac side, probably because they are not mapped to the same service as it would be on the Windows side, but the things that are similar to each OS (i.e. volume up/down/mute, play/pause/skip forward/back) work on the Mac side as well. Instead of pressing command + Q to quit an app on the Mac OS, you press Window key + Q. So some of the Mac OS keyboard shortcuts still work but I imagine not all of them do. As for any other pros and cons I have only had this keyboard one day so this is what I think as of now, and if something significantly changes then I'll come back to edit this at that point. Pros: Works on Mac and Windows (even though it says otherwise), solar power keeps the battery charged so I don't need to worry about having a stack of batteries laying around, full-size keyboard with number pad, great design and feel. Cons: It does not have a Caps Lock or Num Lock light indicating that the key is active or inactive. Shinny black plastic shows all the dust and finger prints so I feel the constant need to clean it (and Logitech knew this would happen and has you covered cause the keyboard comes with a micro fiber cloth.

    Only Solar Powered Keyboard Out There

    The first time I got it back home I was happy to have an environmentally friendly keyboard. It was nice to know that I wouldn't be needing any batteries (except for the battery inside that should be recharging) since it has its built in solar panels. The first week I was religiously putting it right next to the window and was keeping the percentage of the battery for about 95% to 100%.... I thought that it was so easy to charge them so I let my OC-ness go for a bit and did not charge it for a few weeks.. recently i noticed it going down to 82%.. so i told myself.. well maybe it's time to just leave it at the window.. to my surprise. i tried leaving it by the window overnight so that by the time the sun comes it will be able to charge.. also did it during the afternoon.. I wasn't seeing any increase on the percentage bar.. so I tried putting it outside on our patio and left it there for several hours.. i did this for 2 days but only got up until 89%... 2 days of several hours out in direct sunlight.. that got me researching more online & found out that there others like me who did the exact same thing. based on research the 100% will allow me to have power on my keyboard w/o recharging for 3 months.. but after that it's anyone's game.. and there's also a chance that it might not charge so well and you would have to "replace" the battery based on the FAQ on logitech site. the battery that u would need can only be purchased from their website. That's when I decided to return this to BestBuy and got me the Logitech MK520 instead. yes it's powered by AAA batteries but at least I don't have to go crazy and keep bringing my keyboard out in the patio and get minimal results. i don't think i'll be able to take it. If you're home office table is right next to the window then this might work for you. My window is about 5ft away from the table. Ambient light doesn't work.. it will only help in slowing down the use of the battery i guess.. yes, i also tried having the lamp directed to the keyboard.. it shows on the bar that it's good lighting.. but don't 'see any changes on my battery percentage level.. so like i said, i'm not going to go crazy over trying to get it charged. i think i'm fine with buying AAA batteries and just remember to put it in a recycling bin for batteries.

    Diminished performance with time

    I'm sad to report I'm not hear to leave and outstanding positive review on this keyboard. When I purchased it in October I was thrilled with the price, design, and solar concept. I recently purchased a 34" monitor for my office and decided to use my personal mac as my work computer moving forward. At first, the keyboard was amazing. The disclaimer says you have to plug the receiver directly into the computer, no adapter, however the new Macbook pro only has USB-C ports so obviously it had to be connected through an adapter. (Strange seeing as how Logitech claims this keyboard is designed specifically for Mac, I personally believe the disclaimer saying it can't be connected through an adapter is something for Logitech to use as an excuse when the keyboard begins malfunctioning - but hey, that's just me) The 1st few months of use - zero problems. The keyboard performed exceptionally well even though I defied the rules and connected it through an adapter. It perfectly matched my white Samsung 34" monitor, and took up very little room on my desk. However, after about month 2, the connectivity issues began. Every once in a while there would be a lag, or the keyboard would respond for a few seconds. I would turn it off for a few seconds, turn it back on, and we were good to go. Yes, it was fully solar charged. As of this month (month 4) they keyboard has begun causing problems for me daily. Unresponsive to key strokes, hitting the batter test button one second will give me a red light, the next second it will give me a green. I'm having to repetitively hit keys to get them to type and when they finally do it leaves me with an entire line of the same letter. I've tried computer restarts, plugging the receiver into different adapters, as well as different ports on each adapter, but the problem is clearly within the keyboard itself. I can't say I hate it, because I very much enjoy this keyboard when it actually functions. I like that I have the built in number pad, and for whatever reason it just seems more comfortable to use than apple's bluetooth keyboard. As of now, I have no intentions to replace it. My hope is that whenever the connectivity issues occur they will continue to straighten out quickly. My fear, however, is that the performance will continue to diminish to the point I will end up having to replace.

    Over all, incredibly disappointed. Considered returning it. Which is a little bit depressing to me, as I was very excited to get this keyboard. This keyboard is NOT for heavy users from my experience. It goes berserk when the battery starts to die, typing a million extra letters. If you stick a light on it, say a flashlight, it'll work just fine again after a couple minutes. I have a very bright room that I'm using this in, and yet it didn't stay charged through several hours of use when I use it. I don't leave my lights on when I'm not in the room, however I expected this keyboard to be able to charge while you're using it... Not the case. It can't keep up if it's on while it's charging, even if you're not actually typing anything. As for the keyboard itself, the fact that I love it makes the above points even more frustrating. The size is not bad for in lap use, it's very light weight, and the keys are amazing. I love the keys you barely touch when typing, and the keys go above and beyond in that area. (Some might find them TOO sensitive, though. A slight miscalculation on finger placement would definitely add extra characters you didn't intend on.) The light that checks the battery level only works when the keyboard is on, which I find frustrating. It's a minor inconvenience, but still inconvenient. Also doesn't seem like it gets enough light, as it charges slowly in a well lit room. Over all, (TL;DR) If you're using it in a room you use when you're not using the computer, and especially if you're not a heavy user, this keyboard will probably work great for you. However, if you're a gamer or you spend long amounts of time at a time using your computer, I don't recommend this keyboard for you. (Which seems like exactly the people who would want a keyboard free of batteries, on my opinion)

    Nice alternative to the Apple keyboards

    Had been using a wired Apple Keyboard with my Mac Mini and previously an older MacBook Pro. A couple keys failed so it was time for a new keyboard. I like having the numeric keypad so the choices (and I wanted to retain the Apple layout) were another wired Apple keyboard, the Logitech K750, or a couple other 3rd party accessory brands. Didn't necessarily need the wireless feature, but after reading the reviews I went with the K750. Not having having to deal with replacing or recharging batteries is a big plus and the light on my desk is more than adequate at keeping the K750 fully charged. Having one lass wire run across my desk is nice and the slightly deeper profile to accommodate the solar cells is not a problem. The setup is literally just plugging in the unifying receiver into an available USB port and begin typing. I didn't try downloading the light/battery monitoring app because I read somewhere that it may cause system slowdowns. I do prefer typing on the K750 compared to the Apple keyboard because of the slightly concave keys along with their travel and action. Sure a Caps Lock light would have been nice but would probably impact battery life. Some have mentioned that the folding legs to adjust the angle are little flimsy, but it looks like replacements can be inexpensively ordered from Logitech in the unlikely event they are broken. My only real concern with the K750 is that the labeling of the keys isn't molded in and over time may wear off. Guess it might depend on how hard you pound on the keys. Previously it looks like the K750 was packaged with a cleaning cloth and a USB extender that physically moved the unifying receiver away from your USB port for better range. Apparently this is no longer the case, but I've got plenty of microfiber cleaning cloths laying around to wipe off the numerous fingerprints that collect on the glossy finish of the K750 and my keyboard never travels far enough from my computer for wireless range to be an issue. A nicely designed and built keyboard.

    +1 to Logitech

    I work in accounting and spend a LOT of time doing data entry during the day. As a result, I'm picky about my keyboard and buy my own for work as a result. I particularly like this keyboard, because unlike some users, I like flatter keys that take less effort to press. The selling point on this keyboard for me is the spacing between the keys, requiring a further distance for my fingers to go if I "miss" a key. I have long fingers, so perhaps this is why this works better for me. I spend a lot of time doing 10-key, so if my hand has to shift to the mouse, and then back to the keyboard, it may get a little "off" and cause me to immediately begin typing incorrectly on keyboards where the keys are directly next to each other. I took away one star on this keyboard because I bought one in April of 2017, and beginning in August, the Tab key (I used extensively) became loose and actually separated from the keyboard. For a little while, I could snap it back on and it would be fine, but eventually we were talking minutes. A keyboard at this price should last longer than that. However, given that I had no store warranty on the keyboard, I contacted Logitech, since I was withing the 1-year warranty. It took them a few days to respond, and about 2 weeks to fully resolve, as they required pictures and proof of purchase. But in the end, they shipped me a new (not refurbished) keyboard! I had already purchased this one that I am reviewing because it was on sale and I needed one immediately at my office. However, the service from Logitech was fantastic, and made feel good about my purchase, even as expensive as this keyboard is. I would recommend this keyboard if your preferences are similar to mine (go into the store and try their demo before you buy), and I recommend Logitech for their service.

    Better than original MacBookPro keyboard

    I love this keyboard. It requires very little light to keep it charged. It never fails to work when I am using it. It's lightweight, but it is big because it has the 10 key pad. There is absolutely no lag. It types as fast as I can which is pretty fast. I bought it to replace the existing keyboard on my 17" MacBook Pro because four keys stopped working. I bought this to use as an in between until I can get a new laptop . The keys respond much better than on my MacBook Pro. I do wish that it had a track pad built in or that it came with a matching mouse like the ones for the PCs do--that would've been a nice feature. It does exactly what everyone says and it works flawlessly. I have no trouble keeping track of the little USB dongle that allows it to work wirelessly. I would buy this again if this ever failed . I plan to use it when I get my new laptop. It is Apple white so it matches everything that is silver or white. I'm very satisfied with this keyboard and the way that it functions. It is true that the caps lock does not light up or indicate when it is locked on. I think it gets pushed down when one tries to lift and move the keyboard to use it, but if a conscious effort is made to pick it up along the top edge of the keyboard, rarely if ever will the caps lock be pushed down. Look at where you're grabbing it and it should not be a problem. It's really no big deal. I don't know why everybody whines about it. Just open a sticky and type a few letters--if you think you pressed it on. I can type close to 120 words a minute and going at that speed I rarely if ever accidentally hit that cap lock key because it's raised on one side of it so you can tell it's a different touch than the shift key.It would never keep me from buying this keyboard. .

    I have the windows version of this keyboard (which is the one you're looking at this review on) but i'm currently posting this review using the mac version of the same solor powered keyboard. These use very little power so it doesn't take my light to keep these charged. With the mac, i wasn't able to get the app working right to show me how "charged" the keyboard is, but thats ok because it has a happy and sad button over on the top right of the keyboard... when you press the button, if it lights up green then it's got great light and is doing well charging.. If it's red, it's not got enough light to charge itself up. On the windows version of this keyboard, when you hit that same button, it will bring up an app to show you how charged your keyboard is and the LUX rating that the solar panels are receiving and gives you an idea of how well it's charging... If you're curious about having to have this close to your window to get sunlight, you don't... There are times at night that i use my phone like a "lamp" on my desk and the phone provides enough light to make the keyboard show green when i press the happy/sad button. Depending on the brightness of my monitor, sometimes it can show up green just from the light that comes from the screen... All in all, these keyboards are great feeling, the keys are spaced out a bit more... To me, it's like typing on pillows... The keys are very well made, and the keyboard is well made as well..
