    Awesome For Select Smart TVs And My Mobile Phone

    Was very curious about reviewing this complimentary Logitech TV K600 Wireless Keyboard because it enhances compatible Smart TVs, and, its possible use to replace Qwerty keyboard on my Smart Phone. After three weeks of daily use here is what I like about the K600: * Easy To Set-Up – I simply plugged-in the included dongle/receiver, to my compatible, USB 2.0, Smart TV port. Then, I followed the on-line instructions on my Smart TV to connect to my Wi-Fi home network. This K600 features dual connectivity so it can also be connected to your Smart TV, featuring Bluetooth, through low-energy BT connection. * Keyboard – Merges my TV remote with a dedicated keyboard designed to improve and expand the operations of my Smart TV. Lets me effortlessly move through menus, scroll through pages, and enter Internet Addys, texts, e-mails, or messages with speed as against just using the slow remote by itself. This is a full-sized keyboard, which features rounded, silent keys instead of the square-shaped, keys like a standard PC keyboard. They are very soothing to my fingers while I type. The keyboard is approximately 14 ½ inches long, by 4 ¾ wide, and ¾ inches thick. It weighs approximately 1 pound and two ounces, so it is pretty lightweight and thin too. Also, the keyboard has a built-in, tilted angle, approximately 15 degrees, which makes typing much more comfortable for me, even when the keyboard is on my lap. It has four rounded non-slip pads to keep the keyboard from sliding off my lap or any flat surface I put it on. * Keyboard Features – After I connected my keyboard to my home network, I also connected my Apple SE Smart phone to one of the BT, Switchable Keys at the top of the keyboard through Bluetooth. This allowed me to take advantage of using a full-sized keyboard instead of the super-small, IOS, Qwerty, on-board, touch-keyboard. WooHoo! My fingers are big and the SE screen is small – bad combination for any typing. So, I avoided sending text messages, e-mails, and, always used Siri when I could. Now, while I am at home this is no longer a problem. This keyboard has become my SE phone's best friend. You can BT pair up to three devices, PC, Tablet, or Phone, (IOS or Android, and assign them an Easy-Switch key, 1-3) and switch at any time just by depressing that key. There are four 'Media' keys to the left of this keyboard, which perform actions your remote does. And, six 'Media' keys at the the top right, which control volume, mute, increase/decrease, forward, backward, or stop videos. There are also two keys at the top of the keyboard to increase/decrease brightness. * Bluetooth Pairing For Multi-Device Control – I BT paired my I-Phone to this keyboard easily by depressing one of the three Switchable Keys (#1) for three seconds. The LED on the (#1) key blinks rapidly to indicate it’s in pairing mode. On my I-Phone I selected the K600 TV keyboard from the available BT list. My I-Phone received a six-digit code, which I entered to confirm the pairing. I then optimized the keyboard for my I-Phone by pressing FN + the number for my IOS device (#9). There are seven OS you can choose from. I can pair two other devices besides my mobile phone using the same scenario, but depressing different switchable keys (#2 & 3). * D Pad – Another navigation tool, which allows me to move my cursor quickly (Up, Down, Left, or Right) through choices at the main home screen menu or any other screen display. * Long Battery Life – Up to one year using only two AAA batteries (Included). * Features Of My Smart TV Enhanced – I can now receive and compose e-mails promptly using this K600 keyboard on my smart TV. I can browse the Internet quickly and smoothly, which was always too slow and unthinkable using my remote by itself. I can navigate through choices of movies, TV shows, and, or videos and do searches for programs or movies with speed and ease. * Precision Touchpad – Allows me to navigate freely and quickly through menus, Apps, pages, while browsing the Internet, and, or searching for movies or programs. I can configure this generously-sized touchpad for either left or right 'click' buttons. Definitely a must-have compared to clicking the remote to do the same thing. YooHoo!* Wish It Had: * Backlighting – It would be easier to operate this keyboard with some sort of illuminated keys at night. During the daytime the lights are dimmed down in my living room, and, or bedroom, which strains my eyes operating this keyboard. Even if it had an all white or black body with luminous letters – it would be superior to the all black body with white lettering and no illumination. * A comprehensive 'Users Manual', would have been nice, especially, since I had to spend so much time learning the various operations of this keyboard through trial and error. I would advise to go to the Logitech website for more detailed information under FAQ. I found that I use this keyboard as much sending texts, e-mails, and messages on my Smart Phone at home as I do using it on my Smart TV. This certainly is an added plus for me and pleasant surprise. I highly recommend the purchase of this Logitech TV K600 Wireless Keyboard if you really want to enhance and take advantage of the resources on your Smart TV, PC, and, or mobile phone. I would give this keyboard 5 stars if it had backlighting. I tend to use this keyboard in my living room and bedroom, where the lighting is mostly subdued, making this keyboard a challenge to operate. If you have a late model Fire-TV this is an outstanding accessory. But, please make sure your TV model is compatible with the K600 before you purchase it. It is FUN to use, much more comprehensive, then the TV's remote.

    Not Compatible With Most TVs or Apps

    There are a myriad of wireless keyboards & keyboard remotes on the market.  What (I thought) set the Logitec K600 apart is that the company has taken the time to configure the keyboard specifically for each compatible device.  Sadly, the K600 has an extremely short list of compatible devices and even if the keyboard is designed for your TV, it does not work across all apps (such as YouTube).  ...As a matter of fact, the odds are overwhelmingly against most customers.  If you do not own an LG OLED, Samsung, Sony Bravia, or Phillips TV don't bother buying.  Even if you do own one of the brands mentioned, it still might not be compatible. *****CHECK COMPATIBILITY BEFORE YOU BUY***** https://www.logitech.com/en-us/promo/k600-tv/smart-tv-compatibility-checker.html The keyboard is easy to set up, is light, easy to manipulate in your hands, and is great for web browsing / navigation.  But, because it is not compatible with all of the Apps on each TV, it is only useful a small minority of the time.  Unless you do a lot of web-browsing on your Television, I simply can't recommend this keyboard.  Frequently I would run into apps (such as YouTube) that would not accept text input - which is the whole point of the keyboard! This keyboard is best suited for those who have a computer hooked up to their main television (as it allows you to use the same keyboard as you switch back & forth between TV/Computer functions).  But this customer type are few in number. And, the number of this small population who also has one of the compatible TVs is even smaller.  Unfortunately this keyboard just won’t work for most people and when it is compatible, it only works a small fraction of the time text input is needed.  Until this keyboard costs less and also works for more brands and across all apps – I simply cannot recommend it. Pros: + Battery life (2 x AAA) is listed at 12 months. + The wireless range is excellent (works at up to 49 feet from the USB receiver) + The USB Receiver fits in the battery compartment (so that it does not get lost in travel). + They keyboard is light enough to hold in one hand. + The track pad reads multi-touch gestures making directional navigation simple. + The track pad (sometimes) allows you to pinch to zoom + Includes directional keys (d-pad) that are easy to reach & work well + Keys type quietly but have a pleasant physical feel + The Keyboard can be paired to 3 devices and switching between devices is quick & simple + Set-up is quick, simple, and ensures keys work well for the specific TV model you have (if compatible) + Can be used to control Media (Pause/Play, Rewind/Fast Forward, etc) + Custom shortcuts can be set up for PC & Mac users Cons: - The keyboard is not compatible with most TV brands / models. - The keyboard does not allow text input within all apps. Specifically frustrating is that it does not currently allow you to type within YouTube. - Promotional materials state that turning the keyboard upside down locks the keypad (so that kids don't type and interrupt your viewing).  This function does not work at all. - The keyboard is slick on the bottom and will slide around your lap unless it happens to be resting perfectly flat (not always convenient when you are on a couch watching TV).  The rubber feet run horizontal and work well on a table, but not well on your lap. - The current price (across all stores / websites is too high. - Size:  While it is a great size for a keyboard, it is quite large for a remote that frequently is not able to input text into Smart TV apps.

    A worthy addition to mobile devices and tv's alike

    If you want specs, look elsewhere. I don't like reviews that do nothing more than regurgitate specs back at me that I can easily find in the tab up above that shares the same name. So, I do my best to avoid putting that nonsense in my own reviews. With that out of the way, I will say that the K600 is awesome. Whether used via simple bluetooth connection (or if you're lucky enough) to a TV that supports the included dongle and recognizes it via the setup process. Lucky for me, I have a Samsung and an LG, both of which are on the supported list (they need to be a newer model, pretty sure it's anything 2015 and older aren't directly supported). This lack of extra out of the box/non-bluetooth support is 1/2 star off. The touchpad tracking is precise and works great for getting from one menu to the next. The shortcut keys are exactly where you want them; out of the way so you don't hit them inadvertently, but not a chore to get to when you *do* need them. Having the "fn" keys is great for doubling up on commands without having to bloat the surface with a whole new set of keys. Just one extra button to initiate the "fn" functionality and you're good to go. The device itself feels extremely solid and doesn't have anything drastically hanging off of it or jutting out to get snagged on anything causing it to break...or to rip anything (think a blanket on the couch, or pulling it in/out of a backpack/handbag). The ONE thing I would change would be back-lighting. At night it is a little difficult to see what it what until you get used to the button layout. This is 1/2-star off. The only con I could really find was when attempting to setup bluetooth the process asks you to long-press "one of the quick keys" to get the rapid blinking that is usually associated with bluetooth connectivity. This is worded in a way that makes you think there are more than one. So, I was looking for a grouping of keys or something, but long-pressing anything like this did nothing. Finally I noticed that the "F3" key had the little light on it letting you know the device was on and/or you were hitting a key. So, I figured I'd give that a long-press and see what happened. It started the rapid blinking and that was that, the K600 showed up on my phone's bluetooth list and away we went. The K600 worked just as great on all the mobile devices I connected it to, and was a welcome addition for my wife's thumbs the week that she used it during meetings while on the road. Usually she keeps notes in her Google Notes app. The compact size of the K600 allowed her to throw it in her carry-on and also handbag for her conferences that week. She still took her laptop with her not knowing if the K600 was going to be enough, but in hindsight she stated; "I didn't even need to use my laptop. I could've just left it at home and used my phone and the keyboard" (K600)... I will also add that our daughter has more and more homework that is web-based. She has long since used a laptop for this sort of thing. I let her use the K600 on and off at her leisure through her phone and she said that while she enjoyed the larger screen size her laptop provided, that if she were in a pinch and really *had* to knock an assignment out quickly that the K600 definitely helped speed up the process. And, that it's size made it very easy to haul around and use without being a burden (she took it to school a few times, as well). So, if you are someone that merely uses a laptop or similar due to having more real estate when it comes to typing or note taking while on the go, the price difference between the K600 coupled with your mobile device is MASSIVE compared to a tablet/chromebook/laptop/etc etc I would give this a 5-star review but, the lack of out of the box/non-bluetooth support for a wider range of items and the absence of back-lit keys brings the K600 down to a very strong-4.

    A good idea, but...

    I love the feel of the keyboard. As someone else said, it's a lot like a good laptop keyboard. If it worked with a Samsung TV model that Logitech says it supports, it would be great. As it is, I can only pair it to my MacBook Pro and my iPhone. It's not the keyboard itself that seems to be the issue. It's the support that the company provides for it. As the saying goes, it just doesn’t seem ready for prime time. Here's my experience: 1. Following the directions, I had problems pairing it with my supported Samsung TV using the Unify dongle that comes with the K600, so I went to their Support site. There's almost nothing there about the K600. There's no information on what to do if pairing it to a supported TV doesn't work. Whenever I tried to pair mine to my TV, it paired to my computer instead. I tried turning off my computer and then pairing to the TV, but that didn't work, either. There's no information on resetting it back to factory settings. I know that it somehow will work with the TV because right after I plugged the dongle into the TV and was unwrapping the keyboard by holding the trackpad, the TV responded right away. If I could reset it, I think I could get it to work properly. By the way, whenever I've tried to pair the TV with this keyboard, they were about a foot apart. 2. Because I had problems during setup at k600setup.logi.com (the setup web page), I clicked the "?" button. I then clicked "How do I know I connected my keyboard correctly?" That link took me directly to the Logitech home page. There's no Help section on the Logitech home page. 3. When you use k600setup.logi.com to set up the keyboard for your TV and your laptop, they both map to Easy Switch key #1. There's no way to change that during setup. These setups should ask which key to use and not override previous mapping without asking. Using the current versions of those web pages leads to setting up both over and over again, with no way out. My hunch is that you should go through the TV setup first, and then pair your computer with Bluetooth mapped to key #2 or #3, without using the setup page. It took at least an hour to figure that out. 4. I realize that this is going to sound dumb, but there's no information ANYWHERE about actually *using* Easy Switch. They just repeatedly mention that the keyboard has this feature. They don't say "Just tap the key" anywhere on their website, in the setup web pages or in their Logitech Options software. I assumed that I had to tap and hold the key. Doing that screwed up the pairing. Then I tried holding down the Fn key and then an Easy Switch key. That didn't help, either. The K600 may be totally familiar to Logitech engineers, marketers and executives, but it’s totally new to me. I had to find a YouTube video of a trade show demo to learn that all I had to do was tap. I had the time and the perseverance to try and figure this out. Most folks would have just returned the product, which costs both Best Buy and Logitech money and lost sales. 5. I tried putting fresh batteries in the keyboard and going through setup again. That didn't seem to make a difference. Other issues: 1. There's absolutely no reason (other than marketing) to ask for someone's age and gender when registering and product. Those questions should be totally optional and it should be clear that they're optional. Asking customers to upload their receipt is also a questionable request. Logitech does not need to know what else I've purchased or anything else on the receipt. All they need to know is that I've purchased a Logitech product from a legitimate reseller. A privacy statement doesn't override a questionable request for information. 2. The links within the Logitech Options application (which you need to use the keyboard) don't seem to be maintained. When I tried to log in there, first it didn't recognize my email address and password that I’d previously set up on their website. Then, when I tried to reset my password, I got a message that said, "Something went wrong. Please try again later." This has gone on for the past few weeks. My Internet connection was rock solid all of the times I tried to do this. See the attached photo. 3. Logitech should add information someplace on locating the serial number for each of their products. Sometimes it's only on the box. Sometimes, it's only on the battery door. Other times, it's only on the item itself. I shouldn't have to waste my time figuring this out and looking through everything. It was on the bottom of the Logitech mouse I have. It was on the battery door of the previous Logitech keyboard I had. It's only on the box for the K600. Since having the serial number is critical to registration, I shouldn't have to hunt through everything to find it. 4. Since it's extremely likely that someone would throw away or recycle the box, the serial number should be directly on each and every item. 5. There are ads on the setup web pages. Ads during the online setup of any product are just plain annoying and make me LESS likely to buy what's advertised. If I responded to the ad instead of completing the setup, I would end up with something that didn't work and would have to start from scratch. I also would have to see the ad again. If I run into problems with setup (like I did), I have to see the ads again and again and again. 6. I went to their Community Forum looking for help, but quickly found that I can't filter the articles in the Community Forum in any logical way. The Filter dropdown next to the Follow button shows a list, but the dropdown isn't wide enough to show more than 3 characters, no matter how big or wide the screen is. There's no way to make the dropdown wider. I therefore can only filter it by: All Una Que Que That's all it says. It looks that way in current versions of Safari, Firefox, Opera and Chrome with macOS 10.12.6 (Sierra). It also looks that way on my iPhone 8 with iOS 12.1. See the attached photo. (https://community.logitech.com/s/topic/0TO31000000UKNmGAO/keyboards) This is just a keyboard. It shouldn't take hours and hours and hours to guess how to set it up, even with following all of the directions.

    Great keyboard for multiple purposes

    As someone who works remotely a lot and has a laptop as a primary computer, I take a lot of pride in the accessories I choose. At home, I have a workstation that includes a keyboard, mouse, and secondary monitor, but when I’m on the go, I usually just take my laptop. It would be nice to have the flexibility of a small, wireless keyboard, but I have a lot of trouble finding a keyboard that is easily transportable and that I like typing on. I finally found that with the Logitech K600 TV Keyboard. This keyboard is primarily designed for people who need a Bluetooth keyboard to work with their smart TVs and streaming devices like Apple TV. That said, it is a Bluetooth keyboard so any input device that is compatible with Bluetooth connections can use it. The K600 has a built-in touchpad and D-pad so that you can maneuver the cursor on your screen without needing an external mouse. If you are like me though and decided to use the keyboard with a set-up that already has a mouse added on, the K600 will still work just fine with that system. The keyboard has a standard layout without the 10-key number pad. The keys are rounded, which can throw you off if you aren’t used to it, but they are spaced out well enough that it feels natural. I had a mechanical keyboard at one point that had round keys and it was dreadful to type on. It just wasn’t easy to get used to. I didn’t find that to be the same case for this keyboard. I started using it and the soft feedback from the keys made it very easy to work with. The K600 has an impressive 49-foot range. (I tested this Ange by typing this sentence from the other end of our house.) I left my laptop in our home office located on the front side of our house and walked to our living room which is at the back of the house. I left the sentence exactly as it was captured from my keystrokes. It was supposed to read, “I tested this range by typing this sentence from the other end of our house.” It looks as though only one keystroke was missed. I even made a mistake toward the end of the sentence and the keyboard was able to transmit the correction properly. The distance from where my computer was sitting and to where I typed the message was probably about 35 feet, but there were several walls in between the two devices so I am very impressed by the performance of the keyboard at that distance. In addition to my laptop, I connected the keyboard to our LG Smart TV. It’s important to note here that the LG Smart TV is not Bluetooth compatible. So, you will have to plug in the provided USB dongle in order to connect the keyboard to the TV. I was able to switch back and forth between the two connected devices in the room with no issues. I was actually quite surprised at how seamless the process of swapping the connection was. I would tap the #1 function button to connect to my laptop and the #2 function button to access the TV. Navigation with the smart TV was easy and the only thing I really couldn’t adjust was powering the TV off and on. I still needed the remote for that. The only downside to this keyboard is that it’s not rechargeable. It uses 2 AAA batteries for power. There is a on/off switch on the top right hand corner of the keyboard and I would recommend when it’s not in use that you switch it off to conserve battery power. Since I’ve only been using the keyboard for a short time, I can’t comment on how long the AAA batteries will last but so far, I’ve not noticed any connection issues due to power loss. Bluetooth keyboards can be very hit and miss these days. Sometimes they are difficult to connect to devices, not have a great distance, or only be able to connect to a single device at a time. The Logitech K600 is a fantastic example of what you hope a Bluetooth keyboard should be. It connects to devices quickly and easily and it’s very easy to type on. I really enjoy using it with my laptop and love that I can switch back and forth between the TV and the computer when I need to. This is a great keyboard and a wonderful companion for any Bluetooth compatible device.

    Decent TV keyboard, but could be improved!

    First of all, this is a TV keyboard, so I think you have to rate it based on that, and not as a normal keyboard you would use in a day-to-day desktop setting. With a TV keyboard, you get the smaller keys, some missing keys / combined keys you would normally find on a full-sized keyboard in trade for portability and not taking up too much space on a couch or coffee table. That being said, I found the keys to be similar in feel to the keys on my Surface Pro 4 keyboard, albeit round and a bit of space around each one. I'm writing this review using it, and it's pretty easy. A little bit closer with the hands, but not super cramped. I wouldn't want to type a novel on it, for ergonomic reasons, but for something like writing a review... pretty comfortable. There is one thing missing from this keyboard that could've really scored some points, and that is back-lit keys!!! I would say that is a deal-breaker in some situations, because without that, it's very hard to use in low light environments, like a living room while watching a movie. I'm honestly surprised Logitech wouldn't have included that. The keyboard uses key combinations for the initial configuration and switching to each of the 3 pairing modes, which I think would've been better suited as hardware switches, because without reading the setup on the internet, you would be hard-pressed trying to figure out how to set this keyboard up straight out of the box. No manual with setup instructions was included with these kinda critical setup steps. Not sure I will remember the combinations when it comes time to pair it with another device, so I'll probably need to head back to the K600 setup website. The Logitech options software you can download is nice, and lets you configure the keyboard to your liking. It comes with a Logitech Unifying dongle, but I already had one connected, so I just configured it to connect with that one on my desktop PC. Once I was able to figure out how to get it into Bluetooth pairing mode via the K600 website, I paired it with my Android tablet easy peasy. The range of both Bluetooth and the Unifying USB dongle is excellent. You can easily take this keyboard across a room and still have an excellent connection to whatever you are connected to. The size of the keyboard, and position of the circular touchpad make it great for holding with a hand on each end, and using your thumb to scroll around the touchpad. That's a big win with this keyboard. The D-pad above the touchpad is great for scrolling through items in a UI where there isn't mouse control, like a smart tv. The little shortcut buttons on the left side are nice, and can be configured with the Logitech Options App on the PC. I didn't see any configuration software for iOs, Android, or Chrome OS, but you can download the Options software on Mac OS. Having a mobile version of the Options software would be a nice bonus. The construction feels pretty solid, and the keyboard feels well balanced when holding with 2 hands. Sits nice and flat on a desk with a slight angle. Overall, this is a decent portable keyboard for whatever device you want to use it with, but the lack of backlit keys limits it's applications in my honest opinion. If Logitech adds that, it would be a much better choice for certain situations. I would only recommend this to someone that didn't need backlit keys.

    Makes your Smart TV Smarter

    This keyboard is certainly designed with the Smart TV at heart. The keyboard is small and compact, to be able easily put away in your living room, but is very heavy - heavy in a good way, it is not going to slide around your lap or end table while trying to use it, or snap the first time it slides off the couch. The keys are comfortable to the touch and have the right push back for a good responsive feel. The side track pad for moving a mouse cursor is a nice feature. I was not sure how it would work with my Smart TV as it did not have a mouse cursor before, but it essentially made my TV mouse capable. I can use the trackpad to move a pointer and click on an app on the screen launching the app I selected. It was super easy to setup - just unboxed it, went to my smart tv to pair a bluetooth device, entered the code and good to go. It was really nice being able to interact with the apps that needed key entry, like searching for a movie, or logging into an app with a long password, and not having to navigate with the traditional remote. After entering in the code for my tv that you can get right from logitech’s website, the nicely placed navigational keys along the side of the keyboard worked, allowing me to have full control over the TV, and its applications - including the home and search buttons. This keyboard really unlocks a level of function on your smart TV - that just was not really feasible before. The convenience of being able to quickly type in movie names, passwords, and the like is great, but now being able to use things like a browser has added great value. If you are interested in a BT keyboard for your smart tv, this is second to none -- but do be sure to make sure that your model will work. I did not try to pair it with a non supported TV, but based upon how it interacts with mine, things like the track pad, and side keys are likely to have mixed to no results. You can check right on Logitech’s website, or of course ask your local Best Buy service team to verify!

    Logitech does it again.

    I’ve owned a few keyboards for TV’s over the years and was never happy with any of them. They were too small, the TV just did not work well with them or apps were not designed to work with keyboards. The last one I had was a Samsung for a 2013 Samsung TV and even that did not work well. However, the Logitech K600 does address the problems of old and solves a lot of them, for the most part. Let’s look at the overall construction: I know, keyboards are keyboards. Not the case. One of the things I did not like about prior smart TV keyboards, and bluetooth keyboards in general, is they were too light. Not the Logitech K600, it has some heft to it. If you are going to be moving a keyboard from surface to surface ( including the living room couch, ) you want some weight to keep it in place while you type. Logitech definitely took the weight into consideration and I think you will like the solid feel. The keys are responsive with a good tactile feel. The keys are round and I do not particularly care for that, I am too used to hitting the edge of a rectangularly shaped key. That is more a personal preference, I doubt most people would notice it. The layout of all the keys is well thought out and the TV remote buttons on the left hand side works nicely. However, I was not thrilled with the touch pad. The touch pad is a hard plastic that feels like the the rest of the keyboard. I would have made it a different material and gave it a more matte type of finish. It also feels a bit weak when clicking with it. How does it function ? The Logitech K600 gets high marks on function. It just does what it says it does. That is provided you have the right TV and use it for the right apps. For the most part, you must have a 2016 or later smart TV that is Samsung, LG or Sony. That is not to say Logitech may add other brands or that it may work, Logitech is clearly stating that the keyboard is designed to only work with the above right now. I have a 2016 Samsung 8000 series and everything worked well. I could use the keyboard as a remote and cycle through all the various functions and apps. Netflix and Youtube worked fine . I was surprised to learn that the touch pad only works while browsing the web ( who really browses the web with their TV ?) One odd thing, there is not off switch that I can find. Conclusion : Keep in mind that the Logitech K600 is a niche product. You should not be buying this to replace your remote. Even with all the built in functions , it still is a poor replacement for a remote. What you are buying it for is a better way to use Netflix, Youtube, Hulu and similar apps that are a pain to use with a remote. The remote functions that are built in are a nice to have at your finger tips while using the built TV apps. I like the keyboard, it is just the right size and weight and has what I need for using it with my Smart TV. Don’t buy it as a regular PC keyboard nor a remote replacement, buy it for the best keyboard for a smart TV.

    Great add-on for my tv

    Logitech has always made great products and this keyboard is no exception to that. In the box you get the keyboard and a unify dongle. The keyboard is very well built and feels nice in hand. Everything from the size to the spacing and placement of the keys feels just right for a sit back couch keyboard. If you dont need the unify dongle you can store it hidden away in a little slot next to the batteries in the back. I didn't need it because all of my devices support bluetooth. Logitech has a website that covers what devices are supported so if your unsure please visit that first so you can see what devices/features are supported. This thing can be paired with PCs, phones, set-top boxes, and some select tvs - all depending on what software they are running. Note that all of my tvs and set-top boxes are running android tv and all my usage here is based on that platform. My android tv devices (nexus player and nvidia shield tv) including my Sony tv had no problem paring to this keyboard. I searched, they found it, and paired. I expected a few keys to not work but I was wrong. Everything just worked. Dpad, touch pad, even the specialty keys on the left. What really surprised me was that when I use the touchpad a mouse cursor appears on the screen so you can see your on screen position and use that as well. The touchpad also supports two finger scrolling and tap. With all the functionality this keyboard has it really gives a person multiple options. For example to navigate you can either use the dpad, touchpad, or go old school and just use the arrow keys. What really sets this keyboard apart from previous models is that it has a dpad in the upper right hand corner. I dont see this as a complete remote replacement but more of a add-on. The main three things I find myself using this for is navigating menus, typing searches in apps for example youtube, and typing in passwords. Yes there is a lot you can do with voice on smart tvs but there are specific apps that dont support it and some things like typing in passwords are a pain with the remote. So having a keyboard makes some of this a lot easier. Note that the keyboard does not have a microphone in it so you cannot use it with voice search. I noticed that some of the keys that take you directly to search throw a voice error but then immediately kick you to manual search so you can type. So having a microphone in the keyboard would have been a nice add-on. In all I find this keyboard to be a great addition to my smart tv setup.

    I'll admit I didn't quite know what to expect from a TV Keyboard - but this Logitech K600 surprised me! First thing I did was plug it into a Windows 10 PC - and it IMMEDIATELY worked flawlessly - and I'm talking all functions and buttons. Things like the Home key opened a browser, start button work as expected, left and right mouse click buttons, windows tabs, etc! Next was trying it on the TV. Please note that you likely need a TV made in approx 2016 or newer for all keys to function correctly. I suggest checking on the Logitech site first: https://www.logitech.com/en-us/promo/k600-tv/smart-tv-compatibility-checker.html The first TV I tried was a Samsung a bit too old, yet many of the functions worked with it anywa - like changing channel, volume, menus, etc. The beauty of this is that it allows you to much more easily type in search phrases, access URLs through your smart-tv browser or even your firestick, chromecast stick, etc. It has a built-in touch pad and a D-Pad (with directional arrows and a center click button) for multiple was of easy navigation. The K600 has 3 device connection buttion, labels 1, 2 and 3. So - connect your basement TV, your living room TV and a PC and switch between them! Can't get more simple than that (of course you have to move the Unifying receiver, or have more than one, or use Bluetooth) if you have multiple devices. So - are you a TV or NetFlix junkie that is tired of using the one-letter-at-a-time search function? If so - you'll appreciate the ease of use and features of the Logitech K600 TV Keyboard!

    Great Living Room Keyboard

    The Logitech K600 TV Keyboard is a great keyboard for a living room setting with only 2 flaws that I've found so far which knock it down to 4 stars. First, the lack of backlighting on the keyboard is puzzling. If ever there was a need for it, it's in a living room setting where it's likely that the lighting is dimmed or off. The second issue, which may be user error on my part, is that it appears not to be compatible with the XBox One X connected via Bluetooth, which is also surprising since it works with Windows 10 via Bluetooth. I've tried numerous methods to connect the K600 to my Xbox with no luck so far. If I manage to figure it out, I'll update this review. Setting up and pairing the K600 to my Samsung TV (via usb dongle) and Nvidia Shield (bluetooth) was quick and painless. Once setup, I was able to use most features of the keyboard as designed with no trouble. The fast switching between control of my devices is a great feature. The K600 can control 3 devices at a time, switching between devices with a simple button press. However, be warned that not all features of the keyboard work in all applications. For the most part, I was able to use the keyboard as intended with only minor exceptions that can hopefully be addressed via a software update down the road. In addition, only a small number of televisions are currently compatible so be sure to check for compatibility prior to purchasing. I have a recent Samsung TV and it works perfectly, however that is not the case with older televisions. All in all, I'm very happy with the purchase. While I don't intend to use it as a primary input device, it will be nice to have the versatility of it when the need arises. It's likely not necessary for most users but, if like me, you enjoy to have the "extra" add-on's to squeeze every last bit functionality out of your devices, then you will not be disappointed with the Logitech K600 TV Keyboard.

    Limited Compatibility Keyboard

    I was excited to order the Logitech K600 Keyboard to use with the TVs in my house, for when I'm using onscreen menus, using Netflix etc. Seeing that the keyboard is compatible with Sony Bravia TV's (of which I have two) this seemed like a great product for me to ditch the remote and have a sleek, nicely designed and well laid out keyboard to use instead. Opened the keyboard to set it up, and looked at the instructions, seemed easy enough, 1, 2, 3 and you're done. Numbered stickers on the keyboard helped you along the way. Set up the keyboard and plugged in the USB receiver into my TV. Nothing. Then a message, this USB product is not compatible with this device. Come to find out that the keyboard is only compatible with Sony Bravia TVs from 2016 onwards. So, that counted out the 2014 Sony Bravia TV in my living room. I relocated upstairs to my 2016 Sony Bravia TV in a playroom. Same result, not only does the keyboard not work with Bravia TVs before 2016, it also doesn't work with Bravia LCD TVs, but only the OLED or Ultra HD TVs. Therefore in my experience, the keyboard has limited smart TV capability, for those who don't read the small print or impulse buy, just reading 'Sony Smart TV Comaptability'. So, moving on, I next connected to my cell phone using he bluetooth settings, pairing was smooth and easy and worked nicely. I was able to open Apple Notes, and instantly start typing notes. The keyboards great at being able to switch between my iPhone and my Macbook, that worked seamlessly. Logitech have done a nice job with the design of the keyboard, it's nice looking, it feels good and has a nice weight to it. The key travel is nice with a firm feel to them. No complaints there. But these aren't the reasons I picked up the keyboard, not to attach to my iPhone, iPad or Macbook, but to use it with my TVs, to be able to have another way of browsing through the menus, and it just didn't work for me. I wanted to love the keyboard, but I can't.

    Solid Media Laptop for PC, SmartTV or Phone

    I love Logitech products in general for their ease of use and innovative design for all of the technology gadgets that we use in our day to day. For a few years I've been using the Logitech K830, which was a nice upgrade for my HTPC from the more basic Logitech K400/plus. The K600 looks to be an intermediate keyboard in terms of both price and build quality, but it does offer additional functionality in the form of bluetooth connectivity for smart devices like phones and tablets. Here's some positives: +Compact and sturdy design. Its rigid plastic so it doesn't feel cheap to hold and doesn't creak or make any cheap plastic sounds. +Solid typing, trackpad, and dpad. The addition of the dpad nicely replaces the remote control dpad, and while the trackpad isn't as good as the K830 it certainly works fine. The typing takes a bit of getting used to with the circular buttons, but they actually feel a bit more solid than the K830 which was pretty spongy. +Pairing over bluetooth is simple, just go to your bluetooth settings and choose the K600, enter the 6 digit pin and ENTER on the keyboard. Pairing with smart TVs and PC is easy with just using plug and play using the USB receiver. Switching between applications is easy as well using the opt/start key. Overall the K600 feels a lot more quality than the K400/+ as you would expect. It also doesn't have the shared/truncated arrow keys and right Shift key that folks complained about on the K400/+. In terms of negatives: -No LED illumination. K830 has light up keys which helps a lot for a HTPC/Smart TV laptop. -Cheap battery casing, no built-in battery. The K830 has a built-in battery and can be charged using micro-USB which gives it a much higher quality feel. The housing for the batteries (2xAAA) is also flimsy and while the plastic isn't cheap in build quality, it doesn't feel like a very high quality device. Overall a solid wireless keyboard option from Logitech that won't wow you in looks or build quality, but definitely works great in function. A step-up in every way over the cheaper and popular K400/plus but not an improvement in build quality over the K830.

    Logitech is one of those companies that has been churning out a number of great products over the past several years, and the K600 TV keyboard looks to be their next hit. I can always tell when something is well-engineered for what it does (as opposed to over-engineered and you can't figure it out, or over-simplified to where it's barely usable even for its intended purpose), and this keyboard is definitely there. To begin with, it's super-simple to get set up. There are a total of three buttons that are used to connect to whatever device you wish by way of either the included USB dongle or Bluetooth -- one key for USB, two keys for two separate Bluetooth devices. A couple of key presses and the chosen button's integrated LED lets you know it's been selected. Then, when paired with either tech, the light turns solid, and you're ready to rock. Yet what I really liked with pairing is that the included touch mouse as well as accessory buttons (that mimic left/right mouse button clicks, a browser Home button, etc.) work across the device like any other mouse. Latency was effectively non-existent, and the default mouse movement was perfect when dealing with such a non-traditional setup. The keyboard keys themselves have a chicklet feel to them (very similar to many laptops), so if that's something that you're either looking for or don't mind having, you're probably good to go in that arena. What's more, on the underside in the battery compartment (the device takes two AA batteries), Logi included a slot for the USB dongle -- that's an incredibly simple and wonderful solution for those of us who could more than easily loose that tiny wireless connector! This is really handy for a USB setup for a TV because it includes longer range than Bluetooth Low Energy supports. Overall, Logi has made a great keyboard in the K600 unit. It's wide enough to sit comfortably in the lap, heavy enough to be sturdy when typing, and let's you interact with a device almost completely by itself -- a remote is still required, though :)

    Good for HTPC/Android TV

    Posted

    It's a very good keyboard for use with an HTPC and Android TV. I do have a smart TV but disable its connection since the PC and Android TV (Shield) works far better. I kinda like the circular touchpad. I makes more sense being that your reach with you thumb would be in a round area, but it just doesn't match up with the shape of the TV so it's hard to no multi-swipe unless you set the mouse to be super sensitive. The entire pad is left click or tap to click left/ 2finger right click. The two finger is cumbersome when holding so they included a left and right mousebutton on the left of the keyboard. You can do 2 finger scroll, but that's not practical when holding the device. What they've done to remedy by pressing the fn button on the left turns the pad into a scrollwheel. Great work there! With the touchpad being a circle and smaller than their older k400 it allows the the keys to be spread apart more making mistypes less of an issue for me. I didn't weigh the devices, but the k600 is definitely heavier but also sturdier than the older keboard so it flexes less when typing in your lap. You can set up 3 devices, one via the Unifying Receiver and two with Bluetooth. Switching between the three is just a thee second push away. The logitech software detected that I had two receivers and asked if I wanted to use just one. I took the K600's receiver out and tried to pair it with the old k400 receiver. It failed. I shelved the k400 for now anyways. The k600 just offers more for me than the older unit. One feature I love is the directional pad in the upper left. If you use Kodi or Plex on an HTPC using a d-pad is the way to go. The pad works as expected on the Android TV. Couple features that would have been nice, but not included are backlit KB - every htpc needs it! - and set up options that didn't require you to visit a website. A printed single sheet quick-start manual could have said almost everything on the website. Other than that there's no reason not to get this version, especially if you have multiple devices.

    Great little addition for your smart TV

    Logitech definitely had the Smart TV in mind when they made the K600 TV Wireless keyboard. To start, this little gem is compact and can hide away in your living room, theater room, or wherever you decide to use it. With that being said, its smaller build doesn’t mean it feels light, flimsy, or compromised in any way, shape, or form. This is something you can use on a tray table, coffee table, or even on your lap with ease. It’s not going to move while your typing or using the pad. The keys are very responsive and it’s very comfortable to use. The track pad on the side is for moving a mouse cursor and that’s a great piece of functionality when surfing through the menus or a browser. I wasn’t completely sure how it would work with my Fire TV set, but it essentially made my TV mouse capable. I can use the track pad to move a pointer and click on an app on the screen launching the app I selected. From a setup prospective, this was super simple. I took it out of the box, put the dongle on the back of the set, and paired it. There is also a Bluetooth option to enter code, connect it, and be good to go. It’s great being able to interact with the apps on Amazon’s UI where a key entry is needed. Things like searching for a movie, typing in long passwords, and not having to navigate with the traditional remote. This also has nicely placed navigational keys along the side of the keyboard worked too. They are great when you want to do things like go back to the home screen or go straight to the search area. This keyboard really opens up the functionality on your Smart TV. I can easily navigate, search, play games on apps, and utilize the browser more. My one knock is that I would love this even more if it was back-lit. I know it’s a first world problem, but it makes sense when you are using it in a movie/media room. It allows you to keep the lights down and enjoy your content without straining to figure out what buttons are where. All in all, this is a sound investment that is pretty useful.

    Good Keyboard, Check Compatibility Before Buying

    • Tech Insider NetworkTech Insider Network

    The Logitech K600 keyboard is advertised as a keyboard for use with your Smart TV, but can be used with any Bluetooth-compatible device (phones, tablets) or with any laptop/desktop with the included Logitech Unifying USB dongle. The keyboard is a nearly full-size keyboard, making typing on it easy (versus those micro keyboards), and certainly better than using the TV remote to scroll thru letters and numbers one at a time. When used as a keyboard for your TV, it includes a nice circular mouse pad as well as a 4-direction plus center button d-pad. These allows for ease of navigating TV apps like a browser or Netflix. There are also a series of buttons on the left side of the keyboard that have various functions (home, back, search) that are specific to your TV -- some buttons do and some don't work, again all depending on the make & model of your TV. If you use the USB dongle, you need to make sure to follow the pairing directions that are again specific to your TV's manufacturer. The setup ultimately takes all of 10 seconds and is a no-brainer to complete. It is important, though, that you visit the Logitech website (just Google "Logitech K600") and run the compatibility checker to make sure your TV is compatible with the keyboard. As of the time of this review, it only works with certain Samsung, LG, Sony, and Philips TVs. The compatibility checker will let you put in the make & model to ensure it will work with your TV. If you use this with a laptop, desktop, or tablet, there are keyboard-standard buttons including CTRL, ALT, Windows key, F keys, etc. Again, you can use Bluetooth or the USB dongle to connect with anything that isn't a TV. Range is excellent using the USB dongle, with Logitech claiming a 49-foot range (my room isn't that large, so couldn't test the full distance). In summary, this is very good keyboard for working with your TV and absolutely recommend it.

    Keyboard for Samsung MU6300 Smart TV

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    After purchasing a Samsung MU6300 Smart TV, I found one can surf the web on it and interact with certain apps on the TV which is nicer(at times) than watching on my laptop. However, using the remote that comes with the TV to type in long web addresses in the browser to is very "laborious." You can't use just ANY bluetooth keyboard with this TV and the K600 is the only one I could find that did work. Now the keyboard works fully with some apps but not with all the apps. The YouTube app is one app that the keyboard does not allow me to type in what I'm looking for. BUT, if I use the browser and go to youtube.com, I can use the keyboard to access videos at youtube. Before buying it, I would recommend you: 1) Go to logitech.com to see that the k600 is compatible with your TV 2) Search there to see if the apps you plan to use it for is 'fully" compatible. In some apps you can type in information from the keyboard to the app and some apps you can't. Again, before buying, it is worth you time to know what apps it fully works with and those it might not!!! Be a fully informed consumer before buying it. I don't use the keyboard very often but it is nice to have for the few times I do use it. I didn't want to pay the full price of $69.99 so I waited and waited until it was on sale for 59.99. If I waited even longer it probably would have been even cheaper but there was no way of knowing when that was. The keyboard was easy to set up to set up but be prepared to be disappointed to find out that the keyboard may not be able to interact fully with your favorite apps.

    This logitech TV remote is an interesting piece of tech. In an age of voice control & streaming from mobile devices to smart TVs, Logitech introduces a "remote" for your TV larger than any other I have ever seen. In it's defense, it does everything it is advertized to do and does it well. The question then becomes whether or not it will make your life easier. PROS: - Ease of use: This keyboard is a breeze to set up with a compatible TV (make sure to check in advance) and intuitive to use when it is up and running. - Ability to use multiple devices: The fact that you can quickly switch between up to three paired devices with hot keys is a nice touch. I currently use this keyboard at work and will occationally swap to reply to a text on my phone if I don't feel like lifting it from it's docking station CONS: - DO YOU NEED IT? The question littering this review. What will this device actually do for you? As a smart tv remote, it is significantly larger than most remoted provided with TVs (many even have applications that you can use your smartphone to control the TV) and many TVs have designed their interfaces to work well with the provided remotes (intuitive on-screen keyboards, voice typing, etc.). The only big benefit I could theoretically see is if you are someone who browses the internet via their TV or frequently types in long searches or passwords. The true home I have found for this keyboard is actually at my office. I really like the layout of the trackpad on one side and the mouse-click buttons on the other as well as the programable hot keys. As a traditionaly keyboard it actually has a nice, small form factor and I may even bring it with me on some extended work trips. However, this is marketed squarely as a TV keyboard. I wanted to, but simply couldn't identify a solid enough use case to vaildate recommending it's purchase.

    Not just good for TV

    Logitech makes great products when it comes to keyboards. This is one of them, not only it works for newer TVs but it also works as just a great basic keyboard to have on hand. I'll layout the features that you'll most likely buy this for but don't count this out as just a keyboard/mouse combo either. First, off it is comfortable to use and hold, I don't know its something about the way this keyboard feels in the hand that makes this really nice to type on. The ergonomics of it is comfortable for your hands to reach all the keys it needs. I'm really pleased to feel int he hand. Your thumbs softly touches the sides of the sides of the keyboard on the left you have quick function and left/right click keys. These work for/on a Smart TVs (that support them which is mostly from 2016), Android, Android TVs, PC, and iOS. On the right is the amazing feeling trackpad and arrow directional keys for TVs. K600 TV is lightweight and feels like holding a remote in the hand but a keyboard. Trackpad works as you expect and smooth scrolling and have the press-in click so you don't have to use Left/Right click buttons on PCs if you don't want to. You no longer need a separate mouse; I love this K600 personally. There is easy device pairing in which you can change from TV keyboard to BT keyboard on the fly. The Bluetooth range goes far about 50 feet so you won't have any problem with range. It's just a great TV keyboard, but I've also used it for a PC/TV living room setup and on iOS which was a delightful living room experience. Not much to say about it its just a delightful nice keyboard that can work for TVs with cumbersome web browsers but its much better outside of just a TV keyboard. This thing is versatile to use on almost any device that supports Bluetooth keyboards.
