    Don't let the specs fool ya...

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

    Only Solar Powered Keyboard Out There

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

    Diminished performance with time

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

    Logitech wins again

    Had used PC version K570 for 4-5 years til I finally destroyed it with liquid. As I now use a MacBook mainly as a desktop, I coughed up the extra 10 bucks for the Mac version this time. (Either Mac or PC version works with a Mac but some command key differences can be disorienting for a Mac user for a few minutes and vice-versa. I've found that to be the same even with other brands' cheap wireless keyboards.) I'm using this keyboard for business and personal writing, browsing - a lot of keystrokes but not pounding-key gaming type applications. I find both versions to be high-quality and both are quiet keyboards with the low-profile keys I like, and just the right size. The Mac version feels softer-touch with less clicking noise, and in silver doesn't show finger-smudges like the PC version did. I definitely like the Mac version better however both K570 variants are solidly-built, with some heft to them despite their ultra thin profile. (i.e., you could do damage on the face of a bad guy with this, unlike the keyboard you get with your office desktop PC.) I also use this to work within a windows desktop work terminal via my MacBook, and have found the cmd and alt type keys to work the way I need them to, within that environment. I don't find the solar app to be process-hogging on a Mac as some of its reviews indicate - dig into it and you'll find it's easy to limit it from running constantly. Having had the PC version for several years, I found that eventually I did need to move the keyboard into more direct sunlight for a good charge while I was away, as my office is fairly dim, however I never ran into a real issue. Caps-lock on light is the only thing I'd enjoy having, however I've frankly never had a real issue as during touch-typing I'm looking at the screen and not the keyboard, anyway. For desktop use, the K570, either version, has been my favorite in terms of layout and comfort and I look forward to my new Mac version lasting many years until I tip a drink into it, as well :)

    Nice alternative to the Apple keyboards

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

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

    +1 to Logitech

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

    Better than original MacBookPro keyboard

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

    An "Almost Great" Wireless Keyboard for Macs

    The Logitech K750 is about as close as anyone can get (for now) to the "perfect" (if there is any such thing) wireless keyboard for a Mac or MacBook. The layout is extremely close to the same size as Apple's full-size word keyboard, with the benefit of being wireless. Best of all, the batteries automatically recharge, via the small solar panels along the top edge of the keyboard. If Apple had made a full-size wireless keyboard, this is the keyboard they would have made...well, almost. So, what's wrong with Logitech's design? In truth, very little...but enough to keep it from receiving a 5-star rating. First, while the key layout is, essentially, identical to Apple's full-size layout, the key sizes & spacing are off enough to prevent the use of overlays, such as those one might use with Photoshop, Premiere, ProTools, etc. If Logitech had used identical key size & spacing, I could almost (but not quite) forgive the second problem. That second problem is the material the keys, themselves, are made of. Numerous 3rd-party Mac/MacBook keyboard manufacturers utilize rubber keys similar to those used by Apple, so why Logitech continues to use hard, plastic keys is an interesting question. Nevertheless, the Logitech K750 is still an extremely good keyboard, and one I'd still highly recommend...it might not be perfect, but nothing ever is. If you want the best wireless keyboard for a Mac/MacBook, there are a few (very few) that make the list - this is one of them.

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

    Best Keyboard I've had so far.

    Kevinthecursed

    I would note that I use this keyboard with a desktop. The keys are nicely spaced, and easy to type on. Although the "legs" might be a bit "flimsy", I use it sittling on my lap. As such, it has served me well for the past month or so. The one and only negitive coment I would make is that there is no information provided with this product. In order to fully understand how to use it, I had to search out the information myself. This might be a "no-brainer" for folks more savvy then myself. But a little more then pictograms might have made it easier for me. It does indeed run on normal room lighting; as long as the light is close enough to the board. As I like the room well-lit, this has not been a problem for me. Fully charged; the batterys last for several hours of use. After that they might need 10 min. under a 60 watt light bulb. Going back to the lack of information provided with the product... well, the recharging of the batterys.... how much light you might need and for how long.... all that would have been a great thing to include with the package. Lastly, BestBuy was hands down the lowest price I had found for this item. P. S. I always turn off the Keyboard (there's an "on-off" switch) when not useing it. I think it might help hold a charge, though I honestly have no idea.

    This keyboard is very nice, I was able to get it running in 3 seconds flat. I immediately unplugged my old USB keyboard.. I also got a Logitech M310 Mouse (wireless) I have yet to have any real lag. Just remember you can only have the keyboard on the usb dongle not both for some reason, I would of liked to save space but oh well.. Also, Microphone blu-tooth doesn't allow this to perform when there is a 3rd adapter installed. The keyboard gets confused by the wireless mic's. So other than that, I love this keyboard, I got it as a Gift so I hope it's a gift that keeps on giving.Too bad the mouse doesn't have a solar cell.. My only complaint might be smears on the solar cells.. I have to wipe the cells down all the time... This keyboard does get full charge all the time from a regular florescent light fixture. No need to bake it outside like the other reviewer, who in their right mind would subject electronics to full on sun for hours? Anyways, get this keyboard... I don't regret it. No more cord tugging!

    Just kidding - this keyboard is great, but it's not magic. But it is magic! Because it's solar and because of a weird setup that I am currently dealing with on my desk, the top solar-y part is actually in the dark a lot of the time, yet I've had zero problems with it! Anyway, I had been using the Logitech K480 keyboard for quite a while and liked being able to flip the little dial and switch from typing on my Macbook Pro to typing on my iPhone and whatnot, but with each click of a key it sounded like the Budweiser Clydesdales clopping down the street and I was afraid I was going to start waking up my neighbors... so, I had to go for something a bit quieter; you know, a few hundred decibels below the K480. This is perfect for me. It sounds like a normal keyboard, it is full, as in has all of the keys, as in number pad, home, end, delete, page up, all in places that are not weird and crowded (that goes for the arrow keys, too) as they are in some laptop and peripheral keyboards. What more do you want to know? If you're terrible at spelling, seek help elsewhere. If you're no good at tennis, well, this keyboard won't help you either. However, if you want a good keyboard, designed for Mac (Cmd, alt/option, and other buttons, etc) and easily connectable and plug-and-play to your Macbook, then pay money to receive this item. PS: I stealthily waited for it to drop to $41 and I ninja-snagged it at 6:40 a.m. No joke - a week before it had been $41 for less than 30 minutes and I missed it. May the odds ever be in your favor!

    Nice solar keyboard - until it breaks!

    Posted
    Demean

    I was excited at the thought of a solar powered wireless keyboard - no more replacing AA batteries over and over. I checked out the keyboard in the store and it looked and felt sleek yet sturdy, so I bought one. I felt the price was a bit high at 79.95 but I figured you get what you pay for and I love Logitech products. Installation was a snap and after downloading the unifying software from logitech.com I was using my logitech wireless trackball M570 with the K750 solar keyboard sharing 1 USB receiver. I let it charge up and within no time I was using it. The operating distance was good and all in all it was a nice keyboard. All was well for about 4 months. Just this weekend I noticed the E and V keys were unresponsive and after cleaning the keyboard with a dry soft cloth the F8 key popped off. I put it back on to the best of my ability (it clicked back in place) but it only stays put temporarily. I brush against it or use it and it pops off again. I am not a hard typist, and I take care of my stuff. For keys to break so soon just shows that this keyboard is not designed for the long haul. Today the keyboard is not responding at all even after leaving it in direct sunlight for several hours. I just read on their website that the battery is only expected to last 2 months on a full charge. It says in the FAQ for the keyboard that the battery is not available in stores, only through their parts store online, and so far I have not been able to find the part on their site, as the only replacement part listed for the keyboard is the unifying receiver. It has a 3 year limited hardware warranty but I am not going to bother anymore with this. I will buy something else. I have been a big fan of logitech products for many years and I will continue to buy them, but this one is not worth the money.

    For anyone looking for a wireless keyboard, without the need to replace the batteries every so often, this is the keyboard for you. The board itself has an incredibly thin profile making it sit just about 1/4 of an inch taller than the surface you're resting it on. When you extend the risers in the back, it adds a nice degree of tilt to the keyboard, while still keeping the profile very low. The solar panels on either side of the keyboard provide plenty of surface area for the batteries to charge, and there's a button on the keyboard that you can push to make sure you're getting enough light to charge the batteries. Pushing the button also opens up an app called "solar app" that allows you to see visually how much light you are getting and whether it's sufficient to charge the keyboard. I use this keyboard in an office setting with standard fluorescent lights in what appears to be a dimly lit room, and it's more than adequate to charge the keyboard. As far as the keyboard and touch responsiveness of the keys goes, it feels great. They keyboard is quiet, and doesn't make lots of noise while typing. Even still the noise that it does make is kind of cool, and definitely not annoying to me at all. Key press feels good and reminds me of Chiclet style keys. Haven't had any bad experiences with this yet, and have been using it 40 hours a week for a few months now. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a wireless keyboard, with no maintenance required.

    My company is a media provider, but we try to run as green as we can despite our power requirements at times. This keyboard, like so many Logitech items, is superb at providing both a quality accessory at a decent price point. The action of the keyboard is perfect for me, lower profile keys like a laptop, silent action. The weight of the board is perfect, stays put and grips the painted surface I have it on. The lone problem I had with it was the back legs are pointy, not flat like most feet. I simply added a couple of white rubber protectors for metal shelving ends, and they are softer and grip well. Less than two dollar fix from the hardware store. Most important to me was the ability to go without batteries...it is fantastic. Download the additional software from the LT site and you have a great pop up dashboard that lets you see in a glance the percentage of exposure for the panels, battery life remaining, etc. We use all rechargables, but now those are gone for the most part for me. I paired this with the new LT Ultra Thin mouse, which charges by USB, and I am battery free on my desk. We will now be putting these combos in other locations since they work so well. A nice feature is that it charges whether turned on or off. I have no windows in my sound studio / office so the keyboard charges only when I am in there working...battery has been at 100% the whole time with CFLs as the light source. Highly recommend this for you and the planet.

    I really loved the keyboard but I have decided to return it for a wired solution. The Logitech Unifying software works as advertised, but there was some lag due to either a software bug or wireless interference coming from my Marathon mouse. It only happened a few times, but when it did, it was really annoying. Also, build quality could be better as I felt some flex to the keyboard, especially with the flimsy plastic risers. Otherwise, everything was great. I do prefer the "chicklet" keyboards like most macs and Sony products have nowadays, so the typing feel was great. Its a full-size keyboard with a numeric pad, so thats another plus. And best of all, you will probably never have to worry about batteries as I never saw an issue with the energy. The solar panels built into the keyboard keep this thing constantly charging, even when off. Its supposedly supposed to last up to 3 months in total darkness. I would find that hard to believe if I didn't own the Marathon Mouse 705, also from logitech which also has outstanding battery life on 2 AAs. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. I just happen to be a really picky customer. lol

    Superior keyboard in every way!

    I keyboard all day long, 8-10 hours per day. The keys were wearing down on my Logitech Di Novo after 6 years of use and was looking for a new keyboard. Wanted one with less bulk, wireless, comfortable to type on like my di novo, and had an attached num pad - not two pieces like the di novo. I first tried the Logitech k800 Illuminated keyboard. Seemed to have it all plus option to work with the lights off. Found the keys 'plasticy' feeling with a key travel reminiscent of 1980's IBM keyboards. The batteries also wore out in on three days and needed recharging. The Di Novo batteries lasted up to a year for me. I then tried the Logitech wired illuminated keyboard. This keyboard is much thinner than it's wireless brother, which I loved, but couldn't deal with the wire flopping around my desk after years of no KB wires. Then I saw the new Logitech Solar keyboard on sale and gave that a try. This is the thinnest, most comfortable KB ever! Plus fits in my lapto roller for travel & no batteries! I love it and will keep it forever!!!

    I got this to replace my iMac's short bluetooth wireless keyboard. I was looking for a keyboard that had the extended number pad, and while I wanted one that was corded, this keyboard looked pretty good. I got it when it was on sale and it has worked pretty well for me the last month. The build isn't as nice as the metal keyboards that apple is selling with their computers now, but its still not bad. The upside to the plastic is that it is a very light weight keyboard. There are also legs on the back if you don't like your keyboard flat and it props the back up about an inch. The keys don't feel as nice as Apple's flat-key keyboards, but that's made up by no longer needing batteries (with the solar charging) and he number pad. I also have a Logitech wireless mouse so I've set them up to work off the same USB port. While I haven't encountered it becoming a problem, a lot of the time the energy light will display red (for low power) when on the keyboard. I'm not working in the best lit area of my building, so I don't get a lot of natural light. I switch the keyboard off when I'm not using it, and it hasn't failed me yet when I'm typing or using it. All in all this is a pretty good keyboard for light to moderate use. If you're looking for a gaming keyboard, I'd probably look elsewhere.

    I love this keyboard. I debated whether to get the mac wireless keyboard or this one and I am so glad I chose the Logitech. The keyboard style mimics the mac style of spacing between the letters. It even has just a bit more click when typing which I was missing by using the mac keyboard. The addition of the numeric keypad and the home, end, DELETE, etc. keys was fantastic. It's so great not have to use several combos of keys to make a regular delete stroke. The number pad alone is worth the purchase- I use this for work and it has made an enormous difference in my speed. The solar "panel" used instead of batteries is such a great idea. It does add some weight to the keyboard but I can still put the keyboard in my lap and type just fine- it actually might be more more stable since it's longer. There is a marker that clearly tells you if it needs light and I just stick it under my desk lamp for less than an hour and it's good to go for another few weeks. The overhead light maintains it as well. The lack of batteries also makes it sustainable-glad to be contributing in any way possible to the reduction in battery usage! Although the usb connector does use one of my 2 usb ports, I consider it worth it. (also can always use a hub) I can immediately begin typing-if I was using bluetooth, I would have to wake up the computer with the laptop's keyboard, wait for the connection and then be able to type. Also, it never loses the connection with usb. Overall, great product and would buy again.
