Summary: I had high expectations given the Logitech name, but found the keyboard lacking to meet even my minimum expectations. The primary reason for purchase was backlit keys. This keyboard has two levels of brightness, that are nearly indiscernible. It is poorly lit, and for that it lost 2 stars. I also had issues with the A key repeating , another lost star. It appears to have been manufactured with leftover parts?
Summary: Honestly, I was expecting more for a $40 dollar keyboard. Though I read reviews that the keys are spaced far apart, I had the opposite complaint except my hands are fairy small. Personally owned better keyboards for much cheaper in the past. Would love to return, but return shipping costs ~$10 that I'd rather suck it up and use it for time being and buy another keyboard in the near future.
Summary: On the keyboard I received, the space bar was not very responsive. The space bar would depress, but unless you put a little extra force after the key was fully depressed the space would not register. It was enough of an annoyance that I pulled out a much older keyboard to use instead until I could get it replaced.
Nice backlight and normal keys but finicky wider keys like the "Shift" key make this keyboard a fail.

Summary: Bought this at a brick and mortar store but always research on amazon even if I can't buy there. The Good: The back-light is great, multiple light levels mean it works in bright environment and total darkness. The keys have good travel and feel good to type on compared to the standard $10 keyboard most systems come with. Infinitely superior to my laptop's keyboard. The 6 programmable keys are ok but their layout minimizes usefulness.
Summary: I needed a backlit keyboard and this was a cheap option and I have always been a logitech fan. Everything I have from them has worked well and lasted a very long time so I grabbed one. This keyboard worked great; nice and cheap with a backlight everything I needed. After using it for some time I noticed I kept hitting the macro keys when I was typing and gaming and when not in the game they would usually cause unwanted problems like opening new windows, closing them or...
Summary: I had thought the build quality and user experience would be premium quality. After all this is supposed to be robust enough and responsive enough for serious gaming. I'm afraid I am not convinced. The keys are quite strongly sprung and take quite a hard type to register the key press. As some other reviews mention, it is not exactly quiet. On balance, perhaps a main brand traditional keyboard would be better.
Summary: I just can't get on with this keyboard. The keys are often non-responsive, needing to be pressed harder to get them to operate, and the backlighting (when it works) is nowhere near bright enough. Unfortunately, there seems to be a fault with my keyboard, and the backlights only work if you tap the unit hard, and even then all the keys illuminate. There are 6 programmable G Keys, but only 5 of mine seem to work.

Summary: If like me you are a gamer then you know that there are some excellent brands out there. Logitech is one of them ... usually. However even the big brands forget themselves and get carried away and forget what they are doing and how much things should cost. So firstly £55 for this ??? Are you kidding me ??? Oh right yes I see ... Just the UK you want to rip off then? Go to the USA version of Amazon and surprise surprise this is $36 !! So about £25.
Summary: This keyboard is far too expensive for what it is. I'm a touch typist and just couldn't get on with it, the keys are far too firm and the back-lighting is one of the weakest that I've ever seen. Very poor keyboard in my opinion.
