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: 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.
Summary: I bought this keyboard approx. 5 month ago and today I'm looking for a new one. It is excellent for typing and the it have good features and looks good, but it lacks good craftsmanship. I own other logitech products and is the same. I lost my recipe so, no warranty. Maybe I buy it again because it is good product but the build quality is horrible. I know it sound contradictory but there is no other alternatives so....
Summary: The bluetooth illuminate has its share of pros and cons. Pros: -slender -light weight -illuminates -soft buttons Con: -pinning problem -frequently disconnects around other wireless devices -flat
Summary: People will want this keyboard for many reasons. I wanted it because I have a Mac Mini (used to serve media to all my Apple TVs) sitting next to my iMac - I use Target Display Mode on the iMac as the display for the Mac Mini. So I thought this keyboard would let me do way with having two keyboards on my desk. But it doesn't. The ⌘2 key input necessary to turn on and off Target Display Mode ONLY works from Apple keyboards.
Summary: Nice keyboard but it is described as UK layout, which is just not true. eg there is no pound sign and the " and @ are reversed. I was only able to fix this by downloading third party software.
Summary: A small and neat keyboard. However, there is no separate numeric section. It is not as good a feel as the K810. I bought this as the K810 is for windows and I need to remember that some of the keys do not match the Mac commands. I have reverted back to the K810, as it is a better keyboard.
Summary: Brought this keyboard for all the obvious reasons; the ability to control 3 different Apple devices from 1 keyboard. Well it looks very similar and feels very similar to the Mac keyboard and generally the product is good. BUT if like me you need the CMD + F2 (Target Display Mode) switching function please be aware it will not work on this keyboard, so somewhat defeats the object. I only discovered this after purchase so unfortunately its gone back to Amazon for refund.
Summary: This Logitech item sounds and looks great. Bought two, one for a gift and one for me. ON arrival the items were packed poorly, loose in an Amazon box, no padding nothing. They were boxed by Logitech which made a difference which saved them from the Amazon shipping packaging. The KBoard looks great but feels very light weight. Almost . . . hate to say this but junky! Very plastic and just poor materials in construction.
Summary: I am using this product on a Mac mini which I previously used with an official Apple keyboard. Compared to the official Apple keyboard this takes a little getting used to. Some keys are in a slightly different position and also this keyboard doesn't quite sit up at as large an angle as Apple's keyboard. This can be fixed by affixing some sticky pads underneath or similar. The build quality is great.
