Excerpt: I like quiet keyboards and this is a good one. It's smooth and responds quickly. I use it at work and I find that my hands don't get as tired at the end of the day. I'm still learning how to use the touch mouse so I still keep my wireless mouse set up. I would recommend this keyboard but wait for it to go on sale.
Summary: OK, I really wanted to love this keyboard. It has a great tactile feel, looks cool, and is compact. Great item for uncluttering the desktop. After using it for 10 days, however, it is going back to the store. Even after downloading the special software, the track pad is simply too difficult to use. Since it is missing basic mouse keys (there is no "two key" button at the bottom), it relies on being able to get all of your gestures right.
Summary: Absolutely perfect for my uses on my Windows 8.1 Home Theater PC. I sit on the couch less than 5 feet away at 150% DPI scaling. The touchpad is big, brilliant and works as fluidly as if you were actually touching the screen. Gesture support is brilliant. Keys are fat and well-spaced to make low-light typing and key identification a cinch. Multimedia controls across the top are invaluable. Build quality is rugged, which is great for any accidental spills (none yet :) ).
Summary: I started to write a book that no one will read, so here's the abbreviated version. There's no finesse/precision to this touchpad. I don't know if that's a windows limitation or a Logitech issue, but half the time it doesn't register my taps (clicks), the rest of the time it's highlighting entire pages of text with a slight bump. I recently moved back to Windows after quite a long time with a Macbook and its built in touchpad.
Summary: I wanted to love this keyboard for several reasons: - Windows 8 compatibility and mousepad gesture control - Thin design and long battery life But, once I started writing a Word document I suddenly noticed something pretty striking which surprised me. There are no Page Up/Down or HOME/END keys. What's worse? There's plenty of space for at least two of them near the arrow control area.
Summary: I used this keyboard for about an hour before I boxed it back up and took it back to get a refund. The keyboard was fine, quite and comfortable but the touch pad always has to "wake up" she you use it. I assume this is to save batteries, but it was frustrating to use. Even if you were using it and typed a few character, you had to wake it back up. Seemed like if it was idle for about 1 second or more it would go into power save mode. I will just use my mouse from now on.
Summary: Using this keyboard for an entertainment PC, and for the most part, it works great. Size is not too big, and covers most functions. The touch pad works better when the keyboard is on a solid surface, rather than the lap, though the keyboard does feel solid enough. Use of the touch pad makes the keys unresponsive! Cumbersome to use for any application that requires keyboard interactions in conjunction with the mouse.
Summary: I use this Keyboard in the office and it works perfectly; probably the best keyboard I have ever used. I want to replace the 3 IOGear keyboards I use at home for media centers in my house but without backlighting it is just as bad as that KB in that scenario. What would it take to get backlighting for the keys in this model? It is really as close to perfect as any keyboard I have found; backlighting would put it over the top.
Summary: 1 ) Abolutely needs backlighting ( like the 820 ) ...but that would require a USB connnection for power .... but that's certainly not an issue. 2 ) back row function keys are too small ..... 3 ) Be careful with the delete key ...... it will delete and entire line or series of e-mails with the slightest touch ..... this seems to be a defect ...... maybe Logitech can correct that with an update .... I wish Logitech would release an updated version.
