Pros With solar, you never have to worry about batteries. The keyboard holds a charge well and contains all the usual function keys. It comes with is a special app and key that, when pushed, provides a pop-up window with remaining energy charge life.
Cons The biggest problem I have with the keyboard is the tinny sounding keys. They click like cheap plastic and it is annoying to me. And while the glossy body is pretty, it is a fingerprint magnet. Every stray piece of dust or lint is clearly visible.
Summary Overall, the keyboard is convenient with its wireless solar design. The pairing to the dongle worked like a charm. For me, however, the annoying click of keys is a deal-breaker. With so many other keyboard options to choose from, this one is going back to the store in pursuit of another that feels and "sounds" of better quality, albeit probably not solar powered.
Pros Sturdy form, you may think that you have some flex in the keyboard if you have the legs up. But, unless your driving your fingers into the board. You won't notice anything. Light weight. Easy to move. Easy to set up. Logitech hasn't let me down yet.
Cons No lights to let you know that your caps & number locks are on or off. You do get on screen notification if you change them. But, a couple of LED lights would hurt the battery consumption. Glossy surface - clean freaks beware. No attached palm rest.
Summary This is my third keyboard in the past 12 years. I've had basic keyboards, wired & wireless keyboards, and illuminated keyboards. And, I consider myself a little picky as far as the keys are concerned. I like a certain feel and a certain sound. I found this keyboard about 3 months ago. I read up on it. Checked some reviews. And, became very interested in the board itself. Well, I finally had the chance to see one up close and test it out. I liked it so much I bought it. I have between 5 & 7 Logitech items around my house. They've never let me down. They keep making advances in design and functionality.
After getting this home and setting it up. It was time to give it the road test. Really see what it could do. I expected the glossy surface and the lack of a palm rest. What I didn't expect was the lack of notification lights for the caps & number lock keys. I feel that a couple of low cost energy sipping LED lights would fit this sweet little bit of tech nicely. There is an on screen notifier if you change it accidentally. But, when you turn it own. There is that bit of mystery. Are the locked or not? There is little to no flexing of the board itself when the legs are down. Which is a good thing. When the legs are up, the rubber feet prevent your keyboard from sliding away from you. But, when the legs are down. You may get a little movement from time to time. Because, there is no rubber surface on the foot part of the leg.
So, other a few minor quirks. This is a very good keyboard. And, being equipped with a unifying Bluetooth receiver. Is a very nice addition. Now I just need to get my Logitech MX Anywhere Mouse.
Pros Well designed, looks sharp, wireless connection works great.
Cons The battery has never charged up more than 81% and the keyboard is in a well lit up area plus I use a desk lamp to keep the keyboard charged up to this percentage. Takes days to charge up, could go on but only have 250 characters to work with...
Summary First Logitech devise I'm not enjoying at all, I won't buy another solar keyboard again, what a headache the K750 has been for me.
Pros - Logitech doesn't exaggerate about battery life.
- Only once or twice in 6 months of owning the keyboard have I seen the meter below 100%
- Keys are very comfortable and quiet.
- F-keys are very useful.
- Ridiculously thin.
Cons - Shows fingerprints, scratches, and water spots very quickly.I clean it every week or so and this seems to keep it in reasonable shape.
Summary Absolutely worth buying. It is so nice never having to worry about plugging in the keyboard or worrying about batteries. That feature cannot be overrated.
Pros Super slick, elegant, no batteries needed (ever) and a pleasure to type in.
Cons Nowadays bluetooth connectivity is becoming a norm. This keyboard should have had come with bluetooth in order to avoid having to use one of your USB ports for the diminutive dongle; price could be lower.
Summary Profile of this keyboard is truly thin and it does feel like a high quality device. For those who look and feel is as important as functionality (I'm looking at you Apple fanboys), this keyboard is not going to do a disservice to your chic setups (mac version of this is already available for purchase at Logitech's website).
Keys are so comfortable and nice to type with. I would definitively recommend this product and if you look around, you might find it for 60 bucks.
