      Let there be Light , it even works with a Mac

      Let’s face it, first impressions count and right out of the box the Logitech K800 impresses with its sleek design. Its matte black finish wards off fingerprints and the clear bezel surrounding it gives an upscale look. The keys themselves are well spaced and full sized; I appreciate the surface contour of the keys, my fingers rest perfectly on them, much better than a Microsoft or Dell keyboard. While typing, the keys give a muted click and have just enough resistance and spring to them that you can tell that this is a keyboard that's not going to fall apart. However, admit it, the real reason you're interested in this keyboard is the illumination. First off, with a nod to customization, there is a brightness control that allows you to go from off to full on white light and anywhere in between. At lower illumination levels the letters are visible and subtle but when you turn up the light the keys really pop, a vibrant white light and at full power you'll see just a hint of an outline around the keys, really sharp and frankly a pleasure to use in a darkened or dimly lit room. I also like that the functions are lit in a warm amber light making them stand out as well. One other interesting feature is the proximity detector that dims the keys when your hands are away and brightens them as you bring your hands to the keyboard; it’s a nifty bit of magic that certainly aids its ability to conserve energy while being a cool feature. On a final note about illumination, I appreciate that the keys are uniformly lit, from the top to the bottom, left to the right and all points in between; the glow is even, consistent and easy on the eyes. The illumination is the standout feature on this keyboard and Logitech nailed it. Since the K800 is wireless it requires its own power source, rather than contend with AA batteries this black beauty makes use of a built in rechargeable battery that charges with a micro USB connection to your computer as needed. Sure it means having another cord in your drawer but it sure beats AA's in my book. Speaking of connections, it’s very easy to connect the keyboard using the included Logitech wireless receiver, just plug it into a USB port and you’re ready to go, it couldn’t be any simpler. Before I finish my review let me answer one other question, will it work with a Mac? The answer is yes, pretty well actually. Yes the box says Windows and no the layout isn't really built for Mac but I thought I'd give it a try. Connecting it to my Mac was easy, even though the keyboard was not "recognized" I was able to select a generic keyboard and voila, I was ready to go. The last bit I'll say about Mac compatibility is that not all of the function keys are going to work as you'd expect them to and you'll have to get used to using the Windows key rather than the Command key but frankly it’s just not a problem. In a way it’s funny, keyboards, like mice are pretty much taken for granted until you use a really lousy one or as in this case one that's truly exceptional. At first pass, you may say that a keyboard's a keyboard but then you'd be missing out on an upgrade that you'd really appreciate. From the excellent design, high quality fit and finish to the tactile feedback and shape of the keys to its rechargeable power source the K800 is a fantastic. When you factor in proximity based illumination you've got a real winner! This is one upgrade that I'd recommend to any user; now, if only they'd release a dedicated Mace version, so until they do I'll happily continue to use the K800 with both my PC and my Mac.

      Goodbye old keyboard and hello Logitech K800 Wireless Illuminated Keyboard. This has got to be the best keyboard I've used in recent years and I've been through countless Keyboards over the years. The Ergonomics of this keyboard design is Excellent! I am blown away at how comfortable it is to use and the factor of the whole thing is just so sleek; it almost look like the keyboard is floating on your desk. I haven't enjoyed typing like this in years. The feedback of the keys are responsive and my fingers just fly with each loud click coming from the keys. Another thing I love about this keyboard is that the "FN" keys are just perfect for using. Thanks to the Illuminated keys (which I will get to in a minute.) The "FN" Keys light up a golden-yellowish making them easy to spot on the keyboard. Everything from playing music to opening up your E-mail and Searching Online for content are all there with a stroke of a key. Calculator key works on the fly to sitting beautiful on the right hand side and well lit. The whole thing that brings this keyboard together is the Illuminated keys and more then likely this is what your buying the keyboard for. This is a flawless design! I can now type in the dark without disturbing other family members with the light on. The keys are nice and bright and you can set the brightens up and down with the "FN" keys F5 and F6. It doesn't matter what time it is in the day it makes the keys easy to see and blast away at typing. No more fading out letters on my old keyboard due to the light shining through them. At the top right side of the keyboard is a on and off switch so you can choose if you can have the light on or not. Logitech did a GOOD job on making this keyboard. Outstanding build quality. It was easy to setup and its light weight so you can carry it around the room if you so choose. Battery life of this keyboard have been excellent lasting me longer then 21/2 weeks before recharging. it gives you a 3 bar indicator over the Mute key letting you know just how much battery life you have left. Tap the "FN" key with F7 to check your status of the battery. The USB recharging cord is somewhat short through. Overall this well-lit keyboard is beautifully designed. It just feel like a very well designed wireless Illuminated keyboard. Something that's just so easy to use and I just can't stop giving good praises to it. This is a must buy especially if you have a hard time typing in the dark. its worth the price. My girlfriend also loves this thing and I may buy another one for her. This is a product I will always recommended to others.

      Clear backlit keyboard

      This is my second k800 keyboard. I know that may scare a few people off, but the last one worked for over five years before it bit it. I may have helped it on its way to its demise because I stopped recharging from the computer's usb and used another multi usb port to charge it that may have been of too high a voltage. The original would hold a charge for between 2-6 months between charges. This new one is down to two bars after just a couple of weeks, but I won't recharge until I am at one bar to see how long that will take. I see from the manual for the keyboard, the charge is only supposed to last around ten days. I also replaced the rechargeble batteries about a year ago on my original k800, and I thought that would fix the recharging issue --it needed to be recharged every week or so. It only helped a little, raising the recharge cycle to about three weeks. I used a larger capacity set of rechargeble batteries, but that didn't improve its longetivity. About six months ago while I was typing away, my original k800 suddenly got brighter and brighter, and then abruptly stopped illuminating. I didnt realize how much I looked at the keyboard until it stopped lighting up. I was always more of a hunt and peck keyboardist, and since I usually type only by the soft glow of the computer monitor, this was a great loss to me, but I adapted. But then about four weeks ago two groupings of keys on the old k800 stopped responding so I dragged out the keyboard I received with my Windows 7 computer and tried to use that. That wired keyboard was nothing compared to my old wireless k800--so that is why I bought another k800. And it is now about $30 cheaper than when I originally purchased my first k800. This is a keyboard that makes me want to type . The slight indent on the keys are helpful, even for a hunt and peck person. The bounce back on the keys is solid and feedback from the keys is just right for me. The build and finish of this product is exceptional and that is why I would recommend this to any of my friends--but perhaps not all the gamers, since I watch my son play, and he is very rough on the keys. When he is typing, he is fine, but when he is gaming...well lets just say, I wouldn't want to be any of the keys. I like the matte finish too. It doesn't really show fingerprints. And this time I downloaded and read the manual, so I now know how to use the full functionality of this keyboard. So yes I recommend it. You should get one too.

      Another fine piece from Logitech

      Logitech has always produced very nice accessories for computing and gaming and this wireless keyboard is no exception. The unit uses a USB nano receiver for communication with your device and is ideal for laptops and desktops. The receiver can stay in place without being vulnerable or catching on things. If you use your laptop on the go and then like to set up a home office environment with larger screen, full size keyboard, and standard mouse, the receiver can stay in your laptop full time and make the transition from home to on the go very easy. To ensure that you don't have to permanently tie up too many USB ports for all your wireless devices, the new nano receivers and compatible devices use the Unifying technology which allows the use of one nano receiver for multiple devices. Basically, you can have one receiver work for both mouse and keyboard at the same time. Unfortunately, older Logitech mice, which I have several of, are not compatible with Unifying receivers so you will have to upgrade your mouse to take advantage of that. Still, if you have a limited number of USB ports on your device, Unifying technology is the way to go. The back lit keys are the best part after considering the flawless wireless connectivity and performance. The keyboard automatically adjusts back light brightness based on ambient light levels so the back lighting is never too dim or bright for most conditions. When I connect the laptop to the HDTV, the wireless keyboard allows me to surf and control my laptop w/o having it on my lap. Coupled with a Logitech mouse, you can compute comfotably from your couch on your HDTV and do it in the dark. Great for late night video streaming and surfing on the big screen. I could go on about the power conservation with auto back light sleep, the long battery life, and the no hassle plug and play functionality, but the review would never end. You can't go wrong with this keyboard. It is built solidly with superb fit and finish. This keyboard meets and exceeds the performance and value I've come to expect from Logitech.

      The best keyboard I've ever used

      Posted
      SpeedingBullitt

      I purchased this keyboard to replace an extremely flimsy one that came with my computer. I had originally had my eye on the older Logitech wired illuminated keyboard, but decided to give wireless a chance since the shape of the keys made it a little more comfortable to use. Once I got it home, I opened the box, and I was extremely impressed with the packaging. The way this thing was packed, I felt like I really had something special. hooking it up to the computer was a breeze. I just plugged in the wireless usb adapter, and it started working right away. It did not come with an installation disk, but the driver was easy to download and install from logitech's website. I have had no issues with connectivity at all, and the range is great. I've used it from across the room without any trouble at all. The hot keys integrate seamlesly with Windows 7, and when you press the volume controls, they actually display the volume level on the screen. Additionally, all of the hot keys are customizable. Illumination is perfect. There are four levels of brightness. The only drawback I have found is that when you wake the computer up or reboot it, the illumination resets to the lowest setting to save battery power. This is not a big dealthough, as the illumination control is right there on the keyboard. I love the feel of the keys on this keyboard. They feel solid, and have just the right amount of travel. the key tops are slightly contoured and feel great under my fingertips The life of the rechargable batteries seems fine as well. I've used this keboard for several days, and the battery indicator still shows a full charge. Overall, this is one of the only computer peripheral purchases I've made that I feel completely satisfied with.

      A must have keyboard !

      How much can you say about a new wireless keyboard? For the Logitech K800, quite a lot! This is a nice keyboard and definitely a step up from the “norm”. Very simple to set up, it took just 2 minutes from removing it from the box to using it. Simply slide the supplied wireless USB receiver plug into your PC, turn on the wireless function, (on/off switch), on the top of the keyboard, the keys light up and away you go, ready to use. Very simple and pretty snazzy! You can’t miss something you’ve never had, and I’ve never had an illuminated keyboard before so it never even crossed my mind as being a need. However, after using this keyboard now for 10 days I wonder if I’ll ever be able to do without the illumination? It’s a great feature and I’ll recommend this to anyone. I use this keyboard in a fairly dimly lit office that also suffers with poor ambient light, and I have to say, it’s been an absolute blessing in that environment. A nice surprise that I wasn’t expecting was the auto motion sensor in the keyboard that senses when your hands are hovering over the key board, and this immediately turns on the backlight illumination across all the keys, and vice versa, when you remove your hands away from the keyboard the backlight dims to off very quickly. The keys remain visible but not illuminated while not in use. It also has brightness self sensing, adjusting its brightness to the current lighting environment, which is a nice feature and saves manually making that adjustment for varying conditions. The sensor turns off the backlight in about 3 seconds when it senses no activity of the keys, or no hovering hands, and therefore gives maximum battery conservation. The built in battery is also a plus and removes the need to mess with disposable batteries, and the keyboard comes with a charging cable that simply plugs into any USB port on your PC to re-charge, (perfect for overnight re-charging use), and there’s a low battery indicator on top of the keyboard next to the on/off switch. Battery life to date has been excellent; I’ve used the keyboard on and off over 10 days without a re-charge. Use of the “smart” keys, (FN Keys), is easy and straight forward for instant access to launching the web, music/media player, email, search engine, calculator and much more. This key board has a nice, slim, modern feel to it, predominantly black in color but with an eye catching white side flare around its inward slopping edges. It’s a very neat and tidy looking keyboard with an extended front palm rest, which is wider than a standard keyboard and gives it that more ergonomic feel and look. The illumination on a keyboard is now a must have, must stay feature for me. It makes everything else I’ve had or used seem a bit dated. Nice job Logitech! It’s a very nice product.

      An amazing wireless keyboard

      This is a great keyboard for anyone who is looking for both wireless and a backlit keyboard. It uses an internal battery and charges from your PC using a micro USB cable. So far I have left it in the ON position most of the time and the battery finally needed charging for the first time since I opened it (I didn't charge it right out of the box) after about two weeks. Outstanding battery life. The keyboard has secondary uses for the F keys that can be mapped to various shortcuts in the software. Pressing the FN key in addtion to one of the F keys will activate the secondary feature. There is also one dedicated shortcut key that defaults to the calculator but can also be mapped to something different. The feel of the keys is perfect. They have just the right amount of travel distance and provide a good tactile feedback. The backlighting is also very nice, it even detects when you hand is over the keyboard and turns on the backlighting which is a very handy feature. The USB stub reciver uses Logitech's latest technology which can connect up to 6 devices to the single reciver so you don't need to fill up your USB ports with a bunch of recivers. This is one of Logitech's premium keyboards and it shows. Wireless, backlighting and a perfect feel to the keys makes this a great option for someone looking for a high end wireless keyboard.

      I have just ordered a custom build computer and wanted to get all new peripherals. I had spent an hour looking at keyboards and mice at Best Buy and had done a good bit of poking around online for reviews. I was not looking for a wireless keyboard but was intrigued by the fact that I could have a single receiver for both a keyboard and a Logitech wireless mouse. (They call this a ‘Unifying Receiver’) So I also got a Logitech M510 wireless laser mouse. I installed the receiver on the front of my computer and connect the mouse first. It was found right away and away I went. I next took the keyboard out and turned it on. Needed to ‘cycle’ the on off switch 2 times to get the receiver to see the keyboard but this must have been a first time thing as the unit has always connected right away since then. I do enjoy bringing a new product and setting it up with no muss and no fuss. Unit does have a USB cable for charging the batteries. At first I thought this was going to be a major hassle as I feel rechargeable’ s do not last as long but after getting everything organized it was all fine. (Logitech not only supplied a USB cable but also a USB extension cable. This allowed me to connect the cable to the back of the computer and route it with my speaker cables. I used the supplied Velcro cable ties to secure the keyboard end to the back of the right hand speaker with a ‘service loop’ that can reach the back of the keyboard. When not in use I just fold it back behind the speaker.) The keyboard itself is wonderful. The adjustable backlighting works as advertised and the programmable Function Keys are easily programmable (but you do need to download the keyboard and mouse management software from Logitech). I have years of using standard DELL keyboards and there has been some adjustment to slight layout difference between the units. I found the actions of the keys to be very nice but this can be very personal thing so I’d recommend going to the store to try them for yourself….I have used keyboards that one person would rave about only to find that I hated using it so always give it a try.
