Summary: I'm a software developer, so needless to say I use my keyboard a lot. I never dreamed that I would spend this much on a keyboard, however, when I'm using another keyboard I'm wishing I was using this one. Its really the simple things that I love about it. 1) Its quiet, but sturdy. It feels like a mechanical keyboard, but sounds quiet like a laptop. This is something I never thought about until I experienced it, and now I'll never not notice it again. 2.
Summary: Would love it if the buttons were white/clear and the key labels were black. Wargames style backlighting is what I am referring to. Good feel and action. Worked fine for a couple years, had unfortunate accident with it broke a couple buttons off.
Summary: This is the best keyboard I have ever had. I use it an average of 8 hours/day and have used it non-stop for two years now. Never had any problems. It is very silent, soft and smooth. It needs to be charged about once a week only. I love the programmable keys as well. I never had the problem mentioned in other reviews that mention keys got loose. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but it is worth it. I recommend it.
If you want a lit keyboard, this is the one to get.

Summary: Nice keyboard. Very easy to hook up. It is a Smart keyboard, it senses when you are there. The lights on the keys light up when you type. When you quit typing, they go out to save battery life. It works with Windows 8. I had recently bought a new HP Touch Screen computer. The keyboard it came with was small and dark. When I found out about this keyboard, I had to get one. I love it!
Summary: This keyboard is great, durable, efficient, and only needs to be charged once a week (with heavy use). The only complaint I could say would be the price, but overall I would say it holds its value, as I won't be needing another keyboard for at least another 3 or 4 years. Its programmable and its 'function' keys let me open various programs with one touch. I would surely recommend this to anybody who needs a reliable keyboard that can handle heavy use.
Summary: The keyboard arrived with box undamaged. We opened the box and boo, four keys were flopping around in the bag (CTRL, Caps Lock, "0" and "."). My wife tried to snap them back in for 30 minutes but no such luck. What can I say, I really like logitech but this is a major fail. I found many other reviews from users that had the same problem, so this is not a defect on my keyboard, it's a defect with the K800. Don't buy it.
Summary: I'm not a gamer nor did I use the keyboard on a full time basis and yet the ''P' and the "W" broke off in less than a year. I was surprised as this keyboard received such high marks. I will not purchase another Logitech keyboard - the sleek/simple format was nice but the quality is poor.
Summary: This is a very nice keyboard. I bought this one because my previous backlit keyboard keys were coming off due to cleaning. The angle lifts on the K800 collapse when I move the keyboard towards the monitor. I move the keyboard around a lot and this constant collapsing is unacceptable.
