Excerpt: I purchased my keyboard in July 2014. The keyboard works great, I love the low profile. The front cover is coming up on both sides by the solar panel. I messaged with Staples to be turned over to SquareTrade to be sent to Logitech Customer Service... this is where the problem starts. I spoke with Zac, (pleasant and somewhat helpful) somewhere during the process of determining if my keyboard was going to be replaced after having to email my receipt, pics and serial number...
Summary: I don't understand why Logitech can't put small lights into the Caps Lock and Num Lock keys to indicate their on/off status. If you want to know their status you must download an app from Logitech. Even then it only shows their status when you press the key. You will need to download the Unifying software and run it to marry the dongle and the keyboard or add the keyboard to an existing Unifying dongle.
Summary: While I love my Apple wireless keyboard, I need the 10-key functionality of a wireless extended, and this keyboard seemed the logical choice. I've been spoiled by the materials and engineering of the Apple keyboards. PROS: 10-key pad Solar powered CONS: No caps key light Flimsy legs Cheap, plastic materials (even Apple's plastic components are a much better quality) Spongy key action Keys aren't quite as generous in size The key contours are clunky and odd Keys are not...
Summary: Overall, the keyboard has a nice feel, although I wish that they would design a comfort curve style keyboard for Macs. The cons that I have found are as follows: They have no caps light, and a few of the keys do not always function the same as on the Mac keyboard. I would also like to have had a backlight for the keys.
Excerpt: I use this keyboard in my accounting business. I thought a solar-powered keyboard that unilinks with my wireless mouse would make my life easy. The connectivity part did. The keyboard works like that of a laptop, but every time I want to use F key, I have to hit an extra key 1st--"FN". How annoying. You never know when Caps Lock is on or off. Well, I'll just have to deal with it for now. No time to research another keyboard now. It's tax season.
Summary: then it won't hold a charge. I charge it like crazy: putting it in the windowsill, under a halogen counter light, etc, and no matter what the battery level says it's down to under 20% within a day or two. Very frustrating. I don't even know if I'll bother contacting customer support since it doesn't look like they're very supportive, based on the forum posts I've seen. I may be saying goodbye to Logitech and looking elsewhere.
Summary: I loved the keyboard, but after almost exactly 1-1/2 years, I went to log on to my computer and my password would not work. It took me a little while to figure it out; the "P" key stopped working. Then other keys failed. I believe this is because the battery failed. Even so, I liked it and will probably buy another.
Summary: This keyboard has a some great features. Pros: The fact that it charges via solar is excellent. That alone reduces the hassle of one more cables running on the desktop. The low profile is another great feature; it's nice not to have the keyboard be such a prominent device on the desktop. Cons: I'm an IT CIO. I use the keyboard often, not as much as a software coder or someone doing data entry, but a fairly moderate daily use.
Summary: The fact this is solar powered is great. Just having it sit on my desk keeps it charged. It even feels good to type on. The only problem is the key construction. I have already had my backspace fall off and I think the shift key is going next.
Excerpt: I found it hard to get set up; but easy to use after that. I found the new numeric keypad hard to get used to…I have typed for more than 45 years and it is VERY hard to change where you know keys are supposed to be!!!
Pros: Good Value, Comfortable, Easy to Use, Quality, compatible
