A great keyboard

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.
Excerpt: If you use more than one bluetooth device at a time (I often have 3 at once) then this is a must. Not only does it allow you to switch easily among all the devices, but the key action itself is the best I've ever found. THE only downside is that the keyboard is not "tilted" at all, but you quickly become used to this.
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.
Excerpt: I purchased this to use with my iPad. I have an Apple wireless keyboard that I use with my desktop & it works great! I could have purchased another to use with my iPad as it was less expensive than this keyboard. I opted to give the Logitech Bluetooth Easy Switch Keyboard a try. It took less than 2 minutes to connect to my iPad & I like the size & feel of the keyboard.
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!
Summary: I like the extra keys on the K750, but it isn't Bluetooth. I love the specs for the K811, but it doesn't have the keyboard layout of the K750. I have submitted a request to Logitech. Who knows? Maybe some day.
Summary: When I saw the review in MacWorld I thought that this was it. A keyboard that would connect between all of my Mac devises. Right now I am using two keyboards, one USB and the other a Bluetooth. Because I also have a Home Security PC with no bluetooth. So I have to unplug and re-plug my keyboard between my Mac Mini and my PC. When I need to connect to my Power PC G5 I pick up my old Apple bluetooth keyboard.
Excerpt: The Logitech 811 is a great little backlit keyboard that that recharges with a USB cable and your computer. I like the idea of not having to constantly buy batteries and the keyboard lasts a very long time between charges. It pairs well both both my Mac Pro running OSX 10.9.1 and my Wacom Companion Tablet reining Windows 8.1 Pro. With three separate Bluetooth pairing keys, you don't have to constantly go through the pairing process when switching devices.
