Summary: Love Love Love this keyboard. I use mine at home, and I cannot tolerate bright lights. I have used Logitech keyboards for years, so I was excited to know that they have an illuminated model. I've had it for a couple of weeks and find it exceptional. At first, I was frustrated that it sat flat on my desktop. After a close examination, I found the little "legs" that prop the keyboard at the correct angle for my comfort. Typing on this keyboard is a pleasure!
Summary: After 2 weeks of using part time, mine becomes unresponsive. I have to disconnect the USB and plug it back in. I've uninstalled and reinstalled software and did the whole updates thing with no change in performance I give MY K740 a 4 rating for that reason. Otherwise it would be a most definite 5. Keyboard is really nice and operates smooth. I like having 3 levels for back light. Even the brightest is subtle.
Summary: I don't type for a living, but I've had and used many PC's, so it was more about finding a quality board that just feels right. This one is by far the best I've ever used. The only thing I hate to see is the price going up so much now. It's almost twice the price that I gave for mine a couple of years ago. I thought electronics and technology hardware almost always goes down in price over time. Odd, but still the best keyboard, IMO.
Summary: I never write a review, but I read them. This keyboard is soooo nice. The keys just feel nice and comfy on my fingertips. The keys are right where my fingers expect to find them. Touch typing is such a breeze, the wrist rest is perfect, the whole keyboard/function/comfort balance has been beautifully solved. And at night the keys are lit. This keyboard is so great that I had to write a review and praise it.
Summary: I love this keyboard! So much so that I bought one for home and one for work. It starts by looking modern, svelte and attractive. Backlit keys are handy at night and in low light and also add an attractive flair. Touch of the keys is awesome! They are firm, responsive, and have just the right "click" to them. I'm also a fan of the shortcut keys. I can only think of one downside; and this is true of many full size keyboards with keypads.
Summary: I may be overly enthusiastic since I just bought it, but it is a beautiful keyboard. The keys are just right - just enough noise, not mushy or sticky or clanky, not hard on the wrists, just the right spacing between each, and no weird keys out of place. I type like a maniac and go through about 5 keyboards a year, and this one I feel is very promising. I'm excited.
Summary: Using this keyboard for over a 1 1/2 year, it is by far top of the line esthetically and mechanically that I have ever utilized. It is a less expensive progeny of LOGI’s designer series of products released 10 years ago. I purchased this to replace my wireless MX 5500, since I was doing work in low light conditions late at night & to use on DOS. The keys respond to a light touch and the keyboard features shortcut functions to operate multi-media on my computer.
Summary: I bought this keyboard because I like the feel of the keys more than anything on the market right now. The Cherry keys are just ok to me and I *really* don't like the rubber/squishy keys that nearly all other keyboards use. The keys are just slightly curved inward to help with centering fingers. I tend to hit two keys at once when using chicklet keys.

Summary: Despite the assurance that this was a UK qwerty keyboard, it wasn't and had many keys in the wrong place and some missing like the £. So although I don't have a problem with Logitech gear usually, it's good stuff, this was disappointing. It was returned without any problem and Amazon refunded. Just beware of the key layout before you buy.
