Excellent product itself! However...

Summary: I am satisfied with this product overall. everything is perfect. typing is soft, quality is good, and moving between different devices work greatly! The only thing I don't like is key mapping problem with "fn" key. I use betterTouchTool app to customize my key mapping. for example, with apple mouse. "fn+two finger swipe to the left" => maximize current window at the left half of screen. However, this keyboard doesn't recognize pushing "fn" key alone.
Summary: I am able to switch between my Ipad Mini, my Mac Pro 13 AND iphone 6. no longer do i have to stress over typing with my fingers. Works flawlessly on Yosemite and although I DO miss the number pad, truth is, if it had one it would not fit in my comp bag. I just got a wired #pad and use that instead :) All in all, it is well-worth the $$$ and I'd happily buy again if it breaks on me, which hasn't happened yet and I am a klutz.
Awesome product. Best Mac keyboard from company other than Apple.

Summary: Awesome product. As an Apple fan I have to admit that Logitech created a greater product than Apple. This keyboard not only wireless but also can be charged from USB and equipped with back light that is missing on Apple's keyboard.
Summary: Backlighting is great and being able to pair with 3 devices is also great but be aware that this will not pair with a Mac mini you will need an actual Apple bluetooth keyboard or USB keyboard when first setting up the mini and then install the logitech system pref to get this keyboard to work. They should state on the box that it is not 100% compatible with the mini and will NOT work with a brand new fresh install.
Summary: This is a great keyboard. High quality materials, good battery life, great typing experience. Once you have them set up it's a breeze to swap between bluetooth hosts. iOS devices switch almost instantaneously, OSX is a bit slower but it's not painful.
Summary: It is a great keyboard to type on, does easily switch between my iMac, iPhone, and iPad. I like the lighted keys and the battery, which charges from USB, lasts a LONG time. The downside is that Logitech software, the preference manager is useless and adds little value. My biggest issue with this keyboard is that it will NOT invoke Target Display Mode for my iMac, which means I have to keep my other Apple keyboard around for when I need that.
Summary: The Logitech K811 really does switch easily. Size wise, the keyboard is roughly the same as any Apple Keyboard, getting used to it was a matter of minutes, not days. The keys give a nice, solid feedback, quite similar to the keyboards from Apple. Quick controls on the top for volume, play/pause and backlight settings make this keyboard easy to use. An added 'home button' key on the 5th function key also makes this easy to use on iDevices.
Summary: I was looking for a keyboard to use with my macbook pro so I don't beat it up, and have to take my computer to the shop to get it fixed. I've done this a lot, so when I saw this keyboard I thought it was too good to be true. I also have an iPad original and iPhone 5. This keyboard shifts from one to the other effortlessly.
Summary: I have had this keyboard for about 8 months now, and Im still very happy for it! I only have two major errors to complain about, else is this possibly the best keyboard I have ever typed on. Maybe even better than Apple own keyboards.. Cons: - CMD+TAB for shifting between programs does not work?! If you press it, and then want to go back, so you add shift (CMD+TAB+SHIFT) then it exits the tab function. That is a major error/bug!
