Pros Excellent feel while typing.
Never needs batteries.
Full-sized, includes numpad
Includes a light sensor, which you can have some fun with.
Very slim and attractive, but...
Cons Fingerprints and dust seem to me to be extremely visible on the glossy black finish.
It also seems to be a dust magnet.
Summary This keyboard is very beautiful., In my opinion, it looks somewhat like an apple product, but more functional. Typing on it is a great experience. I am typing on it to write this reveiw, and I can tell you I am able to type much faster on this keyboard. Keep in mind that this keyboard had a short key-travel, and "chiclet style" keys, making it feel like a laptop keyboard, while being spacious and more comforstable. This means that people who are used to more old fashioned keyboards, or ones with high key-travel may not enjoy this product as much. You should know what kind of keyboard is your favorite before you go shopping for a new one, because a keyboard is an important choice in your computing needs. The keys are not flat like on many laptops though, they are concave, so they are like pillows for your fingers.
As has been my experiences with all Logitech products, I have never had any problems at all in the performance of this product. The only problem at all with this keyboard is that fingerprints are a boon of mine, and they abound on this glossy surface. f I would recommend this to anyone who likes a laptop style keyboard, but wants and upgrade from the one stuck on their computer.
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 nice keys - I wish the keyboard had the charge to use them
Cons The battery application reports low charge after days turned off sitting in the sun. It may then suddenly report high charge but quickly drop charge again. It has battery issues and only works running on battery
Summary I only use the keyboard lightly and mostly in the evening. I have had the keyboard about 4 months and it sit in the sun when not in use. Given this I would not have expected to have charge issues.
Good idea, nice keys, solar implementation fail
Pros Looks pretty nice.
Cons Doesn't hold a charge.
Summary Worked great the first 2 months. I guess the battery came fully charged. Now, it doesn't hold a charge, and I get really good light in my room. Every couple of days, I have to leave it outside in direct sunlight from early morning till end of the day. That'll give me about 2-3 days before I have to do the same thing again. It's a nice light easy to use keyboard, just wish they hadn't skimped out on the cheap battery, or had made it wired if it's not possible to have a battery hold a charge for anything as big as a keyboard.
