    Favorite keyboard since 1990

    Posted
    KellyAnn

    I was about to buy this exact model when my brother and mother gave me the same model. As my brother buys his keyboards from Best Buy, I know that this is where it came from. I chose this keyboard for various reasons. I tried it in store on the display when it was available. The little right shift key does not bother me and I type over 60 words a minute. I have been known to literally wear out keyboards. Within a month to three months (this keyboard is not following the usual pattern - see below), my letters usually wear off the keys and I have grooves where my thumb hits the spacebar and my fore fingers hit the rfuj keys. Sometimes my other vowels have the grooves too. I've had this computer keyboard for about six months now and I have not worn it out, nor do I have missing letters or those telltale grooves in the keys. I do have areas on the keyboard where things are smoothed, but there are no grooves. The shift key would drive some people bonkers but it just takes a little to get used to. After you are used to it, you should have no issue. Most smaller keyboards are actually built with these smaller shift keys. If you want a full size shift key on the right, buy a full size keyboard. If you're willing to get used to the smaller shift key, then this should be a good keyboard. Out of all the keyboards I've had, this is the one I've had the least problems with that has held up the best. I also haven't had to change batteries yet and I'm the world's worst with turning it off! I tell everyone, if you're going to buy a keyboard, buy it in person and try out the store display where you are buying it, before you buy it... and there are some good reasons for it!

    The most user-friendly keyboard you will ever own.

    When it comes to most keyboards, this keyboard is by far one of the most user friendly keyboards to begin with. The unifying usb device not only helps in the long run with compatibility support, but it also allows you to see what other Logitech products are compatible with the unifying software. The keyboard itself is simple, neat, and gives a nice sleek design for such an affordable and inexpensive keyboard. One of the most useful aspects of the keyboard are the gestures that the keyboard posses within the mouse pad. It's the little things that a small, yet extremely useful keyboard can truly do. I would HIGHLY recommend this keyboard to anyone that possess a Windows based PC product, mainly for the dedicated controls and functions that Windows based dedicated devices are used for. The range and distance between the receiver and keyboard works incredibly well without even a notion of worrying in a loss of connection/communication. *Side note: MAKE SURE the next 'unifying software' from Logitech IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE USB RECEIVER; not all products, especially older products are compatible. So be sure to double check!* (You can flat out see the icon on the back and front of the box or product that you're buying. My only main concern with the keyboard is that it can sound a little bit flimsy at times; but I'm telling you, the keyboard does it's job 10X better than most people truly would or could imagine. For beginners, I would recommend this keyboard in a heartbeat without a hesitation.

    Wonderful Surprise

    So I bought the Logitech K400 keyboard because I needed something for my TV (let's face it, typing using a remote just plain sucks). Not wanting to break the bank on something fancy, I went with the budget friendly "old model on sale to make room for new model" item priced at a 33% discount (woohoo!). As a keyboard, it functioned just fine. It felt pretty cheap and flimsy, but that's because it is (cheap materials). So why the 5-star rating? Well, despite is look and feel, it functions 100% and can take a beating! I have two little ones, and let's just say they're not very delicate with inanimate objects... This keyboard has taken more abuse than a bad comedian has taken rotten tomatoes (ok, bad analogy, no one really throws rotten tomatoes anymore, but you get the point), and this thing just keeps on ticking! The durability was a pleasant surprise (not that there is much sensitive electronics in a keyboard, but the wireless transmitter is definitely well protected and the relays (between the keys and the transmitter) are top notch in my books! For the price, you can't go wrong! Do not get this mixed up with the newer model: K400 Plus. I can't vouch for that one, but I liked this one so much I purchased another one for my other TV.

    Excellent Wireless Keyboard for PC/TV

    Am using this Logitech K400r nearly 6 months with my HP Laptop and posted review earlier. Now I ordered one more to use with my Samsung Smart TV. It was on Deal on BestBuy site and I have $5 gift certificate. Didn't even think a minute and ordered this one. After ordering, I noticed the product image and figured it's K400 not K400r model. K400r is next version and has bit different key layout. Also the Edge swipe gesture on Windows 8 will work on K400r only. But yesterday I opened the package and it was K400r. Voila! Connected immediately to Samsung UN50HU8550 4K Smart TV. It got detected immediately and able to use without any hustle. It works great. I used Samsung Standard Remote, Smart Remote, Motion/Gesture control with Samsung TV Camera. But this is the best among all. Right click on track pad will bring Smart hub control which I found after playing with the keyboard. With track/mouse pad I can control the cursor, select the apps, search for videos, use web browser. Can't type inside apps like YouTube, Netflix. However can use arrow keys and select letters to type. I wish it should have Bluetooth option. Anyways USB Dongle is fine as TV has 3 USB Ports.

    Love this keyboard! My first and only complaint is that the touchpad doesn't have side scrolling capability. Going to write Logitech about it and suggest an update in the software to correct this. Other than that, installation was a breeze. Takes longer to open the box than to get up and running. Do install the optional software from Logitech mentioned in the instructions. It allows you to set up any additional wireless devices and to change touchpad settings, etc. I agree with the other commenter that the keys are placed such that they would drive a touch typist mad at first, but it gets easier. I typed all this from my LazyBoy. Also great to know that this keyboard will wake the computer, so that I don't ever have to touch the computer except to put in a DVD. Great product! Great shipping service from BestBuy. 3 days and it was at my doorstep. :-)

    One "deal breaking" flaw...

    The price, at $20 on Black Friday, was great. The reduced size makes taking in the computer backpack easier -- the full size keyboard just barely fits and keys fall off occasionally. I do take my whole laptop and external keyboard with me everywhere -- all my paying work comes and goes on the internet and typing is a huge part of my work. It may even fit with its original box, which will give it almost complete protection. BUT....the right shift key is in the wrong place! Deal breaker! This might work for a hunt and peck typist but for a "real typist" it's terrible! I started typing on it, checking out the feel, the responsiveness, etc., good except that I noticed I kept going up to the line above, causing corrections and delays. A real pain. It's because they put the up arrow button where the shift key is supposed to be! Add to it that the shift key is not oversize like it should be, but a normal key size. And it's one key too far to the right. Terrible, terrible, terrible! Designs by engineers without a real typist as a consultant? Contact me, I'll be reasonably priced. Sheesh, what a potentially great keyboard that flopped! Please swap the position of those two keys and send me a new one and I'll switch my review to five stars!

    Keyboard for use with Chromebox

    I needed a keyboard to use with my HP Chromebox. The Chromebox is used in my living room as an entertainment center. I will stream movies in HD, videos, pictures and music from it. The Chromebox came with a key board and mouse. But this combo was lacking as you had to have somewhere to use the mouse. In comes the Logitech keyboard mouse combo. This is a much better solution. I can now lounge on the couch with this keyboard on my lap. No need to have a table nearby or a magazine jammed up next to me for a place to roll a mouse around. For use to control a home entertainment computer this keyboard is awesome. Also the keyboard itself has a much better feel to the buttons when pressed than the cheaper feeling Chromebox keyboard. It synced with my Chromebox without issue. Plug in the wireless adapter into the Chromebox and the first time I used the keyboard it worked perfectly. The only downside I can say is that the Chromebox keyboard had some dedicated buttons such as playing and pausing video and other Chromebox specific tasks that this keyboard does not have. But for me that is not that big of a deal. Heres to using my new keyboard to entertain myself while being a lazy bum on my couch!

    i was looking for something smaller intended to a one of those mini keyboards like the ones fro RII but figured i would try this. positives are: if you already have a current driver for any logitech keyboards ther is no need to install it again. just plug and play. it is much smaller than most full size boards, and also very light there is a left click button on the left side and does just that left clicks. a on/off switch is also available to save battery life when not being used. the item does come with an adapter if you have a problem with fitting the small transceiver. negatives: if you are not used to 2 finger scrolling and dont like touchpads to begin with you may want to skip this all together. there is no function lock for a number pad and a total absence of a number pad hence it is a smal keyboard. this is a great keyboard for "couch surfing" and MAY even work good on some smart tv's. i would recommend it if you like touchpads i did not care for it thought it would be more responsive.

    Logitech - K400 Wireless Keyboard - Cheap TOY

    I really wanted to like this keyboard. It's about the right size for the location I'm using it in, but EVERYTHING about it is CHEAP! The keyboard has a cheap and light-duty feel about it, and OFTEN doesn't re cognize keystrokes, causing me to have to go back and make corrections. (I'm typing on it now). The PAD is even worse. The left/right click buttons aren't the same size, so sometimes when you're reaching for the right one you get the left instead. ALL the worst features of a cheap laptop combined in one package. Logitech has a good reputation in the industry, and this wasn't a real inexpensive keyboard - there are a LOT of options out there for $10 range ones that are of similar quality. For $30 this should be MUCH better! The ONLY reason I'm still using this is because of space limitations. I don't want anything with a mouse or numeric keypad. This one has the features I NEED, but they should have used better quality components when they made it. I would have been willing to spend MORE money to get something that works right. You should too. Pass on this one, at least until they start using better quality components. This one isn't it.

    The keyboard has pretty good range wirelessly with the included dongle extension, works across my living room nicley (10 feet or so) where others I've tried do have occasional hiccups. I also love that it uses AA batteries instead of AAA, unlike the microsoft version. However I got this keyboard to be able to type with it, and the type-ability of ths keyboard with shape of the keys is almost impossible unless you just hunt and peck type. There are 3 absolute No-No's that a keyboard manufacturer should avoid when it comes to key layout and this keyboard violated all of them. DO NOT mess with the shape and position of the Enter Key, Left Shift or Right Shift and this keyboard mutilated them to say the least. It's so bad sometimes I'll have typed a full paragraph and want to go type a capital letter, somehow I'll highlight the entire paragraph and delete the whole thing simply because my fingers hit the up arrow next to where the right shift SHOULD be. So aggravating, I took this thing back.

    Close, but not quite

    Received this as a gift to pair with my Samsung UN46F6300AFXZA. Although it handles basic functions like directing the pointer, accessing TV menu functions and typing URLs into the browser text windows, the keyboard apparently doesn't allow for password entry on sites like Facebook or Gmail. I could watch as extra characters were added to my text entries when the shift key was used. Everything worked fine using the TV remote and the set's on screen keyboard, so the fault appears to be with the K400R or the sites not being fully compatible with Logitech's drivers. Maybe it's Samsung's on-board browser - who knows, but it's a major fail on somebody's part. In summary, if you want to simply browse the web and not access email or anything else with a password, the K400R will work. For more advanced input, I guess you're stuck with Samsung's own bluetooth keyboard, but based on Best Buy reviews (I haven't tried it), it has its own issues and isn't worth the extra $80 to even consider fiddling around with. Samsung, please get your act together. WebTV figured out how to make IR keyboards operate effectively via a TV interface two decades ago.

    I bought this keyboard to work with my new Samsung smartTV. The price was really good at only $25.00, but that was about it. It was easy to set up, even though the instructions are lousy as well. Once I got all the parts in the right place, I attempted to use the keyboard and it was a no go. The keyboard has no power light telling you that it is even on or not. When I tried to type, that didn't work either. I could use the arrow keys and that was it. I bought it so I could type with it rather than use a remote and scroll a virtual keyboard on the TV screen (which is a pain). Anyways, it didn't work and I returned it. I noticed many open boxes on the shelf so maybe other people had the same problem as me. To be fair, maybe I just bought a lemon and it may have worked great had I exchanged it for another one. I didn't see the point as I had already set up the TV with the virtual keyboard anyway so I just returned it. Other Logitech products I have bought have been really great. So maybe I did just get a random lemon.

    I use this keyboard with a dedicated PC connected to my TV. The touch pad works well and I really like the ability to scroll the screen by using two fingers on the touch pad. I use the "sleep" button on the keyboard to put the PC to sleep; pressing any key wakes the computer up with no problem. The range is quite good, at least 20 feet. I did have some problem initially with noise from other devices (the computer, a cable modem, a wireless router, and a cell phone network extender) located close to the USB wireless unit interfering with communications with the keyboard. I fixed this problem by using a 3 ft USB extension cable to place the wireless unit close to the TV (which does not seem to interfere) and away from the other devices. I have been happy with the Logitech wireless keyboards and mice that I have used with my three other computers for a number of years. I was happy to find this one by Logitech that fit my needs for controlling the home theater PC from the couch.

    I purchased a Samsung Ultra HD TV from Best Buy. I found out that when using it to access the internet or other areas that needed info added, the on screen input method was cumbersome. I decided to purchase a wireless keyboard to make the process a little easier. I looked at the Samsung model which seemed a little pricey for occasional use. I then looked at the Logitech K400 which was on sale and decided to take a chance, and I have been quite pleased with it. It does not have some of the dedicated function keys that the Samsung has, but I do not find this to be a problem. And the touch pad works great also. All in all I find it to be perfect for use with my smart TV. I would highly recommend it to anybody looking to purchase a wireless keyboard.

    The keyboard is what the description given by Logitech says it is. It is a little small and is good for using while not using a computer with a traditional desk. I think my keyboard is slightly defective. It would randomly start opening the default music player for several minute periods. Doing this basically made my computer non-functional until it stops. I fixed this by using the Logitech software that allows a very small amount of customization to disable the music key. I did contact Logitech's customer service and they are absolutely terrible. One other issue is that it randomly doesn't recognize keys while holding down the shift key. It does still work if I release the shift key while still holding down the other key. I have come to accept that this is not going to be fixed. Overall, being a wireless keyboard with a touchpad for such a cheap price it is okay. I would recommend buying a nicer one that is not made by Logitech. Their customer service is really bad.

    Keyboard used soley with LG Smart TV

    Purchased to run internet on LG Smart TV. Plugged receiver USB into computer first (As suggested by other users) and then plugged receiver into TV. As the USB ports are hidden (But well placed and orientated for close fit to wall), the connection was poor so had no function unless keyboard was closer or in line of sight to Receiver. I purchased a short USB extension cable and positioned the receiver usb just out of sight but in a better proximity for good connection to keyboard. Now works well. Only issue I am still working on is the keyboard mouse funciton. It seems to conflict with the scroll function of the TV so it rolls the page up/down when you move the cursor....instead of floating across the screen. Still have to use the TV remote to get cursor on the URL Line...(Unless someone knows how to get around that). Cheap option to allow TV surfing. Does not replace the traditional products for surfing (iPhones/Pads etc)

    I bought this keyboard months ago to use with my Samsung Smart TVs. I plugged the USB Nano into the TV, switched on the keyboard, and it started working immediately. I love having the touchpad with the keyboard when using it with the TV. A separate keyboard and mouse would be ackward because sitting in my TV viewing chair there is no good place to roll the mouse. So the touchpad is great. I would not use this as the keyboard for my PC as it is a little small for my hands and doesn't seem like it could take the hours of use it would get. I have used this keyboard with a Raspberry PI. The PI is a single board computer system with a footprint about the size of a credit card. The PI runs a version of linux and the keyboard worked immediately when plugged into the USB. Note that there is a newer version the K410 on sale for the same price at Best Buy. This is a great keyboard for certain applications.

    I've first purchased the K400 and now the K400 Plus. They both have pretty much the same build/features/looks. I've never had any problems with either of them. Plugged the USB reciever into the USB plug on the TV, went into settings to set it up, noticed it'd already recognized it, touched the touchpad and a cursor appeared on screen letting me navigate. Jumped over to the web browser, typed into the google search field no problem, surfed the web for awhile, leaving posts on forums, went onto netflix app, it let me scroll around with the touchpad, opened the search, went to type, all is working well I am happy to say. So much easier than a remote...

    I needed a basic keyboard for controlling my presentation computer from afar, and this does just that. The small size makes it very portable, as well as non-obtrusive while working, or put away when done. Granted, typing on this smaller keyboard is not the same as on a regular full size equivalent, but if I needed that, I wouldn't have bought this. This one is perfect for the occasional one hand typing I need to do, and if you have small enough hands, even two hand typing. I bought the black model because it looks more elegant and gives the impression of higher quality as opposed to the white one that to my taste, just looked kinda meh! The only true thing I didn't like, is that the keyboard isn't all black, top to bottom. It just doesn't look as good as if it was all black, in my opinion. But as long as it doesn't affect performance, no big deal. It isn't a bluetooth device, so make sure to have an available USB port for the IR dongle.

    Best portable keyboard out there

    I used this keyboard with a tough tablet for 10 months and it never let me down. It's not too small, and it fit in my backpack perfectly. Bonus points for having an on/off switch to not waste the battery (which are included btw). Speaking of battery life, I'm still using it to run a tower on a TV at home and I haven't changed the batteries that came with it!. The mouse feels good, has multi-touch capability, and is very responsive. Literally the only drawback to this keyboard is the right shift button/arrows placement. You will have to stretch a little further to hit that shift button or you will end up hitting the up arrow which will usually select your text, and then if you type something, you will lose your text. I got used to it and it wasn't that much of an issue. I bought another one for the wife to use when she connects her Surface Pro to our bedroom TV, and another for myself when I'm working on computers at home.
