    Remarkable

    I have a thing for keyboards, and in particular mechanical keyboards, but is going to one of my kids, who's also happy about this.

    First, it has personality. Just look at this.

    Opening the package is also an experience: There is no plastic packaging. Instead when opening the bock, the keyboard is neatly wrapped in paper (with subtle emoji themes of course). Then one of the first things I noticed is the very shiny Escape key, which is a nice touch.

    Then it's an 'emoji' keyboard…. So yeah, and it's useful in other ways: The rightmost column has four keys with different emojis, and a 5th key which bring an emoji menu. The keyboard comes with additional emoji keycaps to configure to your heart's desire. In reality, the Logitech Flow program that's recommended with this keyboard lets one reconfigure these keys for macros or a bunch of other functions, like desktop or editing gestures.

    But past it looks, it gets more interesting:

    - This is a true mechanical keyboard, using the Romer-G Brown switches also found in gaming keyboards, with good amount of travel, a muted click and tactile feedback.

    - The keyboard itself is weighted, so although it's a compact keyboard, it has enough weight to stay firmly put, which intentionally reminds of a typewriter.

    - It supports Logitech flow, which allows certain keyboards and mouse to be paired to up to three different computers and seamlessly switches between them (I.e. a PC and a Mac of combination of these).

    - It works with Logitech's brand new 'Bolt' receiver (And like all new Logitech devices, not with the older 'Unifying' receiver).

    The keyboard uses two AAA batteries, that as per Logitech, it lasts up to three years.

    'Flow' is the software that should be installed in either PC or Mac to fully use this keyboard. It lets one configure different settings, and keys or macros either globally or per (certain) applications. It also shows battery level and companion devices (mouse, etc). It also enables the Flow functionality that comes in very handy when using multiple computers (PC and/or macOS) with the same keyboard and Logitech mouse. It can also optionally copy/paste or even drag files between computers (The software uses the local network for this, via encrypted ports). I've used this for a number of years on commercial-grade keyboards from Logitech and I recommend it. It's also frequently kept up to date.

    'Bolt' is an USB-A receiver that connects with newer Logitech keyboards and mouse and replaces their previous, ubiquitous 'Unifying' controller, and keep in mind that it's not backwards compatible (or one would have to keep both receivers). This new system appears to be more secure, using better Bluetooth encryption and provides for a more reliable connection. This adapter is not necessary when using Bluetooth, but this way the computer treats it as a wired keyboard so it works during startup (Particularly, macOS is picky with 3rd-party wireless keyboards when fist booting while File vault volumes remain encrypted). Using the adapter makes a much more reliable connection than direct Bluetooth connection.

    Bluetooth (The keyboard supports Bluetooth 5.1) can also be used with a phone or tablet (Android or iOS).

    If I have to nitpick, the keyboard comes with multi-os keycaps (Opt | Start and Cmd | Alt keys). If would've been nice if it also came with OS-specific keycaps as well.

    Overall I really like typing on this keyboard. It feels very natural and comfortable.

    BTW: Using this with the matching Pop mouse that also works with the same Bolt transceiver and Flow software.

    So Satisfying!!!

    I've been wanting this keyboard for awhile. Im glad I finally got my hands on one. I'm using it right now to write this review. This is the most satisfying keyboard to use. Every "CLICK" I hear is music to my ears. Its so fun and relaxing to use, I'm honestly in love with this keyboard. From the beautiful fun and happy colors to every click sound it makes. It gives you the typewriter vibe. Connecting the keyboard to your laptop is simple just turn it on and turn on your laptop bluetooth. When typing the connectivity is very precise. There's 2 ways to connect this to your computer,Laptop or tablet. Via Bluetooth or using the USB receiver it comes with. There's also 9 swappable emoji keys making it more fun to use. Its battery operated, giving you a 3 years battery life. Which I still need to see about that. This would be a great christmas gift or a great addition to your computer system.

    I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD!!

    Received my Logitech Pop Keys keyboard this afternoon and upon opening the box I was immediately impressed with the colorful packaging - made me smile just looking at it! The keyboard was nicely wrapped in emoji designed tissue paper and once I removed that...well...I fell in love with it even before trying it out! Inside the box, across the bottom area, there are your instructions for using and setting up. You also go to logitech.com/support/POPkeys and you will find all the information to get started. Also inside the box they give you 4 extra emoji key covers with a different pattern than what arrives on the keyboard. One nice thing is you can connect to 3 different devices by pressing one of 3 keys across the top which light up when you do. It's bluetooth and what I really love is it has mechanical switches. For durability it states 50 million key presses and it uses 2 AAA batteries and supposedly they should last about 36 months. I have no clue if that's really true as I haven't used it long at all but time will tell. They are very easy to change out anyway. It can be used with Windows 10 or later or Mac OS 10.14 or later, Chrome OS and it has an available USB port.

    Upon pulling the paper tab out of battery case to activate and having my Macbook on, the F1 key started blinking and it connected to my bluetooth after putting in a six digit code I had to type on the Pop keyboard itself. They also provide a USB to plug in if desired. Mine works with or without it. I also am using the Pop Mouse but that is another review. So I was ready to start typing! Now about typing ease! WOW! I normally use a natural shaped keyboard and often have a difficult time with any flat keyboards. Well not with this Pop! I was typing as fast on it as I do on my regular one, plus it reminded me of when I was in school and using those mechanical electric typewriters. It's extremely responsive to my touch and I really enjoy using it. I also attached it to my iPhone, especially great for texting. I even went so far as to put this in place of my natural keyboard using my iMac - yes, I like it that much! And because it does attach to 3 different devices I just carry it with me when I want to change out.

    It's a very unique keyboard that I simply adore. Since I already own a vintage typewriter (not electric) this basically is a modern but vintage style, really suited for me as I do a lot of writing. There isn't one thing negative I can say about it. From the coloring, styling to usability it's just PERFECT. Highly recommended!!

    Nice keyboard

    I received this logitech pop keyboard to test recently. As comparison I do have a Roccat Pyro mechanical gaming keyboard to compare this to for feel and use. That is corded, this is not (IR dongle included). This connected up right away with no issues. It does not have a separate keypad for numbers, so not really meant for gaming, but if you are more into social media and more general browsing, that keypad is not as crucial. The extra emoji buttons do easily set up with the logitech software available with mac and windows 10, I have windows). Size wise this is similar to a laptop keyboard, portable, and takes a second for my fingers to fall into place since not same size as standard keyboard. This would make it more portable, but it is quite heavy, but that is from having the mechanical parts. Overall, the feel is very good, responsive, like click to the typing on a type writer. Very much like when I was learning keyboarding on typewriters and original apple pc's. The round buttons are easy to get used to and have a good feel/shape for fingertips. The responsiveness even though wireless seems as good as my gaming keyboard. The size is the only thing that bothers me a bit since laptop size, but that's my issue, the keyboard is very nice. If you want a quirky looking different colored keyboard of a good quality at a competative price, this would be a solid front runner. I Have used logitech products since the mid 90's because they are dependable and durable, this continues my good impression of their products.

    Fast typer

    This keyboard may look like it made for niche crowds, but I am an older typer from the days of the typewriter and this for me is so fast. I dont know if it the round caps or the 70% that makes this so fast for me, but my fingers know exactly where to go because of the gaps between the round caps.

    Im using this on bluetooth so that I dont have to use the dongle and save the usb slot for something else. the latency feels like zero, and I actually game on it a little.

    As far as gaming goes, I was actually on a Keychron K2 custom built and this for me just feels much better. I think if your fingers are comfortable and they know where all the keys are, it doesnt really matter if the keyboards made for typing or for gaming.

    The color scheme was okay for me, I wanted the white keycaps.

    Only downside, if any, is that there is no rgb. LOL

    Unique Color and Style

    For a full on mechanical keyboard experience, the pop keyboard provides a good value in terms of typing feel and qaulity. The only thing that I did not like was the feel the circularkeycaps. The material and shape were off putting a bit and made it hard to get into a rhythm at times. It might take a bit to get used to as my fingers had a harder time gripping the keycaps

    Fantastic Mini Keyboard

    This is a nice little keyboard that delivers a pleasurable typing experience. I’m not quite convinced on it being a “creator’s keyboard” (I’m a legal professional), but it delivers. It’s pricey for a keyboard, but if you type for any amount of time during the day and you care about that experience, this one is worth a look. Especially if you have limited desktop space or like to take a keyboard with you for travel (I do on work trips).

    IN THE BOX

    Pretty straightforward, the keyboard and a USB cable. Know that for the first time in a long time, if ever, Logitech doesn’t include a USB dongle to plug into your computer. Some people might be disappointed, but I love the idea. Virtually every computer nowadays has Bluietooth, why take up a USB slot with a dongle?

    SETUP

    I recommend plugging in the keyboard before even using it (if you’re able to). My keyboard was shipped with less than 25% so it died pretty quickly after I began using it. Much like Bluetooth headphones, or speakers, setting up the Mini MX keyboard is a similar process. You simply open up the Bluetooth settings in your computer and search for a new device. Then you turn on your keyboard (there’s a switch on the top, can’t miss it), then you hold down the F1, F2 or F3 button to put it in pairing mode. You can repeat this process with up to three different devices. When you want to switch you simply tap which of those buttons that corresponds with the device you’re using.

    DESIGN AND TYPING EXPERIENCE

    I’ve been fond of the MX lines of keyboard and mice for a long time. I own several MX mice and I own the first MX keyboard. I really like the overall design and build quality of the devices. As for the Mini, the design is fantastic. It’s extremely svelte and sturdy. The battery resides in the top which also serves as a stand so the keys are angled slightly towards you. I have to say, I don’t normally use mini keyboards that don’t have number pads, so it feels at first, a little awkward to type on, but I assure you, the keyboard layout is the equivalent of a normal keyboard (sans numberpad). Obviously, if you need a number pad, this keyboard isn’t for you.

    I’ve somewhat of a typing enthusiast. I am a legal professional and I’m typing everyday and I enjoy “clicky” sounding mechanical keyboards. The MX Mini isn’t a traditional mechanical keyboard, the keys are more shallow and more quiet, but it delivers a satisfying experience. I also like the size. While this hasn’t replaced my desktop keyboard, because I use the number pad a lot, it does travel with me because I much prefer a keyboard to ANY laptop keyboard. And I like the small size and footprint. It’s pretty easy to travel with.

    My only complaint with the design is the inclusion of Mac and Windows shortcuts. It’s obvious why the keyboard has both, but as a strictly Windows user, it’s odd seeing symbols I’m not used to. But that’s an extremely minor gripe, we’re talking about 4 keys.

    FEATURES

    So this is billed as a keyboard for creative types. I don’t really understand that marketing. Sure, it has a button to bring up emojis (which I’ve tried just to test but don’t use in my everyday work). But unlike the original MX keyboard which has a cool dial (which could do a number of things, scroll through tabs in a browser, adjust volume etc.) there’s nothing in my mind that separates the MX mini from any other mini keyboard (in terms of “creative” features). There’s a dedicated emoji button, transcribing button (more on that below), mic mute (convenient for video conference calls), play/pause and volume buttons. These aren’t found in all keyboards, but to me there’s nothing creative about them, they’re just standard keyboard shortcuts that are really convenient to have. My favorite might actually by the microphone button. Using a Windows computer, I hit that button and it activates the microphone built into my laptop. I can then transcribe like you might with Google or Siri on your phone. It’s convenient and it works pretty well, but I’m more of a typing person than dictation person, but I can see that being beneficial to some. The emoji button brings up emojis (at least in Google Docs) that allows you to pick one to insert. I guess this is cool, but I don’t typically put emojis in anything but text messages.

    BATTERY LIFE

    One thing I’ve never had any complaints about from Logitech mice and cordless keyboards is battery life. And this Mini MX is no exception. It claims to have 10 day battery life with the backlight on, and several week battery life with the backlight off. I haven’t tested this claim, but I certainly trust Logitech based on previous experiences. I actually turn the backlight on and off depending on the setting. I tend to keep it off because my office is well lit, but in a dark hotel I turn it on. You can turn it on and off by holding the brightness level buttons (obviously holding the dimmer button until it’s off and vice versa). A nice battery saving feature is that the backlight will turn off if it doesn’t detect input after so many seconds and turns back on when you start typing again. The backlight is nice, it illuminates all of the keys, through the keys themselves (versus just seeing the light underneath each key).

    MISCELLANEOUS

    My only real complaint is the small size of the arrow keys. In a full sized keyboard the arrows are offset away from the enter key so they’re plenty big. Here, the keys are half size and underneath the shift button. It’s just an unfortunate necessity for any mini keyboard. Not necessarily a design choice made only by Logitech.

    I just wanted to also mention the types of devices this keyboard works with. Obviously anything Bluetooth. I connected it to my Galaxy FoldZ3 and it worked well. It also easily paired to my GOogle Slate Chromebook (and obviously my WIndows laptop). I haven’t tested it with any Apple products, but I have zero doubts that it will work great with those devices as well.

    CONCLUSION

    Logitech has done it again, building a high quality keyboard worth your money. Especially for those that care about the looks of their devices and a premium keyboard typing experience. The battery life is phenomenal, it can connect to 3 devices at once and it’s extremely responsive (connecting within fractions of a second when turning it on). While it’s advertised towards creatives, let’s be honest, it’s a fantastic keyboard for everyone.

    Great for long typing sessions

    ## Design

    I’m a big fan of the full-size version of the Logitech MX Keys keyboard, so I was happy to see that Logitech makes a smaller version now as well. The MX Keys Mini drops the numeric keyboard and reconfigures the layout a bit, making the arrow keys smaller and shrinking the CTRL, FN and other related keys, while keeping the letters and numbers at full size.

    The keys are backlit and impressively light up as your hand approaches the keyboard, making it easy to see where your hands should “land” in a dark room. On the row of function keys are dedicated media and volume controls.

    ## Performance

    Like its larger sibling, the Logitich MX Keys Mini still has a satisfying feel when typing. It’s not “clicky” like a typical mechanical keyboard, but the keys do provide nice tactile feedback when pressed. I find the keyboard very comfortable for long typing and coding sessions.

    Battery life seems to be very good as I’ve only had the keyboard for a few days, but I haven’t needed to recharge it yet, even with the backlight on.

    ## Features

    Wireless: Oddly, there was no Logitech Unifying Receiver included with this keyboard (although the full size keyboard did include one). Therefore, your only option of connecting the keyboard is via Bluetooth. The USB-C port appears to be “charge only” as I was not able to use the keyboard via a wired connection.

    Backlighting: As mentioned earlier, the backlight seems to sense that your hand is approaching and lights up before you even touch a key. There is only a white LED backlight, so there is no option to change between different colors.

    Multiple machine support: There are 3 dedicated buttons for switching between devices. So you can pair the keyboard via Bluetooth to your laptop, phone and tablet and then switch between devices easily.

    Emoji key: Maybe one of my favorite new features, there is a dedicated key for emojis on the F7 key that allows you to easily bring up iOS’ Emoji keyboard.

    Screenshot key: There is also a dedicated screenshot key that invokes iOS’ screenshot function.

    Dictation key: There is also a key for voice dictation that invokes iOS’ dictation feature.

    USB-C Recharging: You can use the included USB-C to charge the kayboard, but not to connect it to your computer as a wired keyboard.

    ## Summary

    Overall, the Logitech MX Keys Mini keyboard is great for using your laptop in “clamshell” mode, or for connecting to your phone, tablet, or any device with Bluetooth keyboard support. The backlight feature works very well and the dedicated Emoji, screenshot and dictation keys are very convenient. Unfortunately, a wireless USB adapter is not included with this version of the keyboard, so it will need a Bluetooth connection.

    Mighty and Awesome

    Logitech has hit another home room with this one. Let’s start with unboxing

    UNBOXING

    In the box you will get the keyboard, and a USB C to USB A charging cable. Right out of the box the device was charged and ready to be connected for use. My first reaction to lifting the keyboard out of the box was wow, great weight. Often keyboards feel light and flimsy but this had the perfect weight to it and it is definitely compact. But the keys are perfectly spaced for my typing. The keys fit my fingers and are curved just right for me to hit the center of the key ever time,

    CONNECTION

    As soon as you turn this on, the top left key for computer 1 will be blinking. It is in pair mode. Find the Bluetooth settings on your device and follow the prompts on your device to connect to the MX Keys keyboard. You can connect up to 3 devices via Bluetooth. To connect to a different device simply press (and hold for 3 seconds) the 2 or 3 key in the upper left and you will be in pair mode to connect another device. SWITCHING between devices is as simple as 1, 2, 3. Simple press the corresponding key that you have assigned to each device and you will be connected to that device (if it is in range),

    SMART BACKLIGHTING

    Another WOW feature for me is the Smart Backlighting. As you type the keys are backlit. When you stop typing the light will go out after about 5 seconds of inactivity. If you move your hands back towards the keys, before you get to them it senses the movement and lights the keys up as your hands approach. If you have ever tried to type in low light settings and the backlight does not come on until you press a key you wil under sat and how AWESOME this feature is,

    CUSTOMIZE

    You can download the Logitech Options at Logitech.com/options to customize the F-keys and set up VOICE TO TEXT Dictation. There is a function key (F7) that open the Emoji Keyboard, get instant access to Emojis as you type. You can even control how bright the backlight is on the keyboard using the brightness function keys (F4 and F5). There is a screenshot function key (F8) that is perfectly handy to get those must have screen captures with th push of a button.

    SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

    Bluetooth, Windows 10 or later, macOS 10.15 or later, Linux, Chrome OS, iOS 3.4 or later, iPadsOS 14 or later, Android 5.0 or later.

    Excellent Typing Experience on a Small Keyboard

    I’ve been using the Logitech Craft for work for a few years now. I don’t make much use of the multi-function input dial, but I’ve loved the feeling of typing on it and the MX Keys Min delivers an even better experience. I won’t be using it for work unfortunately because I need the ten-key, but if you don’t need that it’s a really solid keyboard that can live on a desk or your bag. The function keys at the top are minimal, but all very useful and it’s a great companion for my MX Anywhere 3.

    The first thing I noticed about the Mini was how light it was compared to my Craft keyboard. Obviously it’s much smaller, but even still I wasn’t expecting it to be so light. It feels just as solid though. The key layout is almost exactly the same size as the Craft keyboard, minus the arrow keys and ten-keypad. The keys are universal and can be used on Mac or Windows. It charges via USB-C. Logitech calls this a minimalist keyboard and I think that’s a fair description. There’s not an egregious amount of extra function keys here and the ones that are there are all generally very useful to me. If you’re somebody like me who cares about the aesthetics of what you use I think you’ll appreciate the design.

    The keyboard connects primarily via Bluetooth, though it can also be connected via Logitech’s new Bolt dongle, which is not included in the box. The Bolt is different from the Unifying Receiver that has been in use for the past several years, so if you’ve already got some Logitech accessories this will not connect to the same receiver. I found the Bluetooth connection to my Surface Book to be solid, no complaints at all there. I have a largish hands and found the experience of typing on this keyboard to feel just a little cramped compared to my Craft, but I think that has less to do with the key spacing and more to do with the fact that the frame is so small that it feels like I might slide off the side if I reach over too far. The typing experience is similar to the Craft, but with a little bit more key travel. The difference is noticeable and I don’t feel like I’m bottoming out the keys nearly as much as I do sometimes when I’m furiously typing away on the Craft. The keys all have circular indentations that make them easy to settle on by feel with my fingers. I mostly used this with my Surface Book and while I didn’t typically use an external keyboard with it before, it was nice to actually push the laptop back a little bit and not hunch into it to type. The battery life is rated up to 10 days with backlighting and 5 months with the backlight turned off. I don’t do much of my typing in the dark, so will likely leave the backlight off, but it does look good and seems to adjust itself to the appropriate level.

    I’m happy with this keyboard overall. I love what Logitech is doing with their Master series and I’m glad I have this to compliment my mouse. For power users I’d go with the full size MX Keys, especially since it’s the same price, but for if you’re looking for a compact keyboard this is a great high quality choice and much better than something like Apple’s Magic Keyboard.

    A Little Pro

    I’ve been using Logitech’s Craft keyboard for some time, and a couple of times I even decided to carry it from home to work with me, but it normally stays parked on my desk at home. It was just too bulky to lug around. Enter in the little and capable brother, the MX Keys Mini. This gives you just about all the same typing experience as the larger MX/Craft, with a couple of compromises.

    Setup is a breeze, especially if you have the Logitech Options software already installed. My PC at home had a little notification pop up when I powered up the MX Keys Mini and in a couple of seconds, it was connected to my computer. I also connected it to my PC at work, and another laptop.

    Typing experience is top notch! It feels so great using this keyboard, it does not feel cramped, and the feel of the keys is awesome. The typing feel is the same as what I get on the Craft keyboard. I love the backlight keys and that they illuminate as soon as it senses your hands, approaching they keys. You get easy to access media keys, and a new emoji key that my Craft keyboard doesn’t have. I’ve used it a couple of times in some meetings. I love that the mic mute button is not for the software that you are currently using, but it mutes the mic at the system level. So far, the battery life has been great. I’ve been using it daily for the last week and it is still going strong. It is easy to stow, not quite as portable as my Keys-to-Go keyboard, but this experience is much better, that I don’t mind the extra weight.

    The only compromise that some folks might not like is the lack of number keypad. You still get the top row of number keys, but if you use the number keypad frequently, this does not have one. Obviously, this is omitted to reduce size and weight, and I am totally fine with it, I just thought it was worth mentioning.

    I love this little keyboard. It’s comfortable to use, allows you to quickly switch between 3 paired devices, and has all the bells and whistles you would expect from a high-quality keyboard. This is an easy recommendation for anyone looking for a great portable typing experience.

    Good budgeted keyboard

    This is a great keyboard, specially if you have an iPad or an iMac. It works with macbooks and iPhones as well but I won't be using it for these devices as macbook pros have their own keyboard and I don't need one for my iPhone anyways. However, I did connect it with my macbook just to try it out. In fact, I'm writing this review with this K380 keyboard. It works great and I don't see any issues so far. It can be connected to three different devices and is very easy to switch between all three devices.

    My main purpose of getting this keyboard was to use it with my Apple TV 4K but unfortunately, it doesn't work with that as the Apple TV 4K is 5th generation and this keyboard only works with 2nd & 3rd generations. This was very disappointing. Typing on apple tv is horrible and not very user friendly. People of own apple tv or have owned will definitely agree with me on this. Now I'm not sure if this is logitech's incapability or just apple tv's 5th generation doesn't support any bluetooth keyboard. I wasn't aware of that first and tried to pair the keyboard with my Apple TV. I went into Settings > Remotes and Devices > Bluetooth. Apple TV does recognize this keyboard as "K380 Keyboard for MAC" but when I click on it to connect, it tries and ultimately spits out the error that it failed. I tried at least 10 times using different pairing options before giving up. Tried searching online as well but there wasn't much support. That's when I found out it only supports 2nd & 3rd gen. It would have made life so much easier if it was compatible with 5th gen as well. Hence the reason for deducting 1 star.

    Apart from this issue, I didn't find any other problem with this keyboard. It comes pre-installed with two AAA batteries and logitech claims to have two years worth of juice in them, of course that will also depend on your usage. The keyboard is budget friendly, specially if compared with Apple's own magic keyboard. Now, I've never used magic keyboard, so I'm not aware of its advantages over 3rd party keyboards but I've no complaints with this logitech keyboard so far (apart from the above mentioned one). The quality seems great. It doesn't look cheap like some other keyboards available in the market. Keys are quiet and have a good feel to them. I received this keyboard and my new macbook pro on same day (yesterday) and was very excited to use them. I treat any of my new devices as if they are going to break with a slight touch. They trigger my ASMR very easily. The keys on this keyboard are same. It feels so good to press them.

    Overall, I'm in love with this keyboard and would recommend it.

    K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard

    This is a good one! I got this because I had been looking for a decent small keyboard for my Ipad. What I really like about this one is that you can still pair individually with devices, but this has 3 distinct keys color differently at the top left that allow you quickly switch between devices.

    Out of the box this looks great. Size is right for a smaller size keyboard, similar to the small Apple one. It’s a bit more solid than the Apple one, the rise is accomplished by designs to slightly raise the top part if you are sitting it on a table or desktop.

    Pairing was flawless with both the Ipad and my Macbook Pro. Switching between them was simple push of a button to separately use them. Comfort is key here and this is a very comfortable and quiet keyboard. All Mac keys are here and work great. For my Ipad, I really like the separate keyboard vs. a bulky keyboard case/cover. I don’t always need a keyboard for my Ipad and the portability of this makes it more functional in my opinion. I typically travel ( when I did and hopefully when I do..lol ) with both Ipad and Mac. This will be perfect for that scenario.

    I was also able to pair this to my Android Smart TV ! worked great, was able to type and use arrows to much more easily navigate things like You Tube and Netflix searches as well as Web App on the TV. Really nice!

    Overall I really like the look, feel and weight of this keyboard. Very well made, quiet and functional in a way that I will use it. I would recommend it.

    Great form, fit and function.

    Logitech K380 Bluetooth Keyboard

    Best Buy TIN had this keyboard as an option. I decided to try it. It is a Bluetooth keyboard that is designed for the Mac, iPhone and iPad. It also reportedly pairs with versions 2 & 3 of the AppleTV.

    I paired mine with my 11” iPad Pro and my 2018 Mac Mini. Once paired, I can switch connections with the press of a button. When I power on the K380, an LED momentarily lights up above the pairing key, indicating the device with which the K380 is currently paired.

    The layout is nearly identical to the Apple Magic Keyboard without the numeric keypad. Only the top row of keys differs. There are 15 keys in that row on the K380 vs 14 on the AMK that I have. The key functions are very similar, but they are shifted. The K380 can be paired with three devices. The gray buttons in the top row allow me to select which device I want to communicate with at any given time. This forced a shift of the normal function key assignments to the right. The shape of the keys also differs in that the K380 key are round or rounded while the AMK keys are square or rectangular.

    The keyboard action is really nice, IMHO. It offers a little springlike resistance that helps with touch typing. It has a very nice feel. After typing on both keyboards, I realized the K380 feel is very similar to the feel of my older, but equally comfortable Apple Magic Keyboard. I think that speaks very well for the K380.

    It is powered by two AAA batteries. Logitech says they will last for 2 years. It took some care and a little finness, but I was finally able to open the battery compartment to see the batteries. I was concerned that I might break the latch on the battery cover, but I was careful and managed to get it open without doing any damage.

    I like that the K380 isn’t connected to the iPad at all. I can use the iPad normally or grab the keyboard if I want to use it. Many of the other keyboards are also covers, so when I want to shed the weight of the keyboard, I have to also give up the cover. There are pros and cons to both styles, but “detached” seems to work better for me, personally.

    While typing this review in Notes, I powered off the K380 to flip it over. The on-screen keyboard popped up on my iPad Pro immediately. When I powered the K380 back on, the on-screen keyboard dropped out of sight again. I can also use the key on the top right of the keyboard to raise or lower the on-screen keyboard.

    Using the K380 reminding me what I miss about a physical keyboard when I use my iPad normally. I like the Command-Tab method of cycling through my open apps and the ability to hold the shift key down while arrowing around to make a text selection very precisely. That is much easier than with my finger or using the space bar on the on-screen keyboard as a touch pad (which is now my second favorite method). I also like the “Delete” key rather than reaching up to touch the trash can icon. Command-V is also easier than touching the right spot on the screen and hoping the paste option shows up on the screen. I can also use a combination of actions like touching the screen where I want to paste a block of text and then using the arrow keys to fine tune where the cursor ended up.

    I tried pairing K380 with the 4K version of the AppleTV, I couldn’t get it to pair. I’m not sure if I did something wrong or if it truly only works with the 2nd and 3rd versions of the AppleTV. I would like to be able to use the K380 with my AppleTV because typing text (selecting keys) on the AppleTV controller is horrible, but I usually pull out my iPhone or iPad and use the Remote app for this, so I’ll keep doing that. However, I could see where it would be handy to just press F3 (for example) and use my K380 to type on the AppleTV if I happened to be using the K380 with my iPad while watching AppleTV.

    Overall, I think the K380 is a great little keyboard that I will use often. I normally take my iPad on trips and leave my MacBook Pro at home. I could take the K380 more conveniently than my MBP and while it doesn’t make my iPad a true MacBook, it does make typing and navigating my iPad (and any laptop I control remotely using my iPad) much easier.

    Excellent Keyboard for the iPad.

    Unboxing: This comes with the keyboard and already installed AAA batteries with an insulation paper. These batteries are estimated to last 2 years according to the Logitech. There are also some paperwork of course. I would have preferred some velvet cloth in the box so that the keyboard would be properly protected from scratches while in your bag.

    Build: Great. I bought the white and its looks so beautiful in person. It feels solid, has some weight to it. This weight and the attached rubber feet prevents it from sliding around while you type.

    Typing Experience: Keyboard travel is ideal. I type much faster than using the on-screen keyboard on my iPad. I am actually typing this review with this keyboard.

    Connectivity: Easy. Just long-press the connection number you want to connect your device to and it puts the keyboard in connection mode. Put your device in connection mode, select “K380 For Mac” from the available devices list. Enter the number you see on the screen using the keyboard and press “RETURN”. You also don’t get the notification: Using “K380 For Mac” may affect Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity as you get with most Bluetooth devices that connect to the iPad. I got this notification on the other Logitech 380 keyboard for Windows and the non-apple Bluetooth mice I used. Flow (Switching between devices on the fly) also works beautifully.

    Other Devices: It works on my Samsung Galaxy Note8. It also works on my Windows computer and my FireTV Stick 4K. I actually tested both K380 types. However, on Windows, the “Start” button becomes “Command” and some other slight changes. Once you get a hang of it, it works well. On Android, the commands are basically unchanged. The function keys also work well on both Windows and Android. Windows also has the capability of changing the assigned functions of some 4 function Keys using the “Logitech Options” software.

    Conclusion: If you want an external keyboard and you own an Apple device, this Keyboard is for you even though you own Android and Windows and you use a FireTV stick.

    This is an excellent keyboard for the iPad.

    Thanks for reading. Peace!

    Highly recommend this product

    I was looking for a Bluetooth keyboard for my iPad but wanted it to also connect to my laptop so I bought this one. Since I already have the Logitech Pebble mouse, this keyboard seemed like the perfect combination with it. It is lightweight, portable and it doesn’t make that much noise when typing. Highly recommend.

    Really good

    The products arrived in excellent conditions. I bought it to use for my tablet but it’s really amazing that I am able to connect it up to three devices. At first it lagged when typing on it, however after a few minutes it was running really smoothly. I find it amazing that they also included batteries since I didn’t even check if I needed to buy some for it. The noise level is not that loud. It’s really obvious if you are pressing the keys really hard but other then that it can be really quiet. I would recommend 100%

    Very nice keyboard. Works good with my small hands. Some of the keys do lag a bit which i did not expect to happen. But, it connects great to my Ipad Pro, the bluetooth sets up fast. There’s no directions that come with it, so just had to figure out how to configure the bluetooth.

    Absolute Must-Have for Surface Pro 8

    If you have purchased (or are considering a purchase of) a Surface Pro 8, I would strongly recommend you factor in the cost of this Signature Keyboard (either this one with the Slim Pen or just the keyboard by itself). The Surface Pro 8 is a great device, but it is severely limited in its capabilities and function without adding this keyboard. Given the cost, Microsoft really should have included the keyboard with the Surface Pro 8. Regardless, this keyboard is probably the best keyboard that exists for any tablet (with the possible exception of the iPad Magic Keyboard). It is thin, lightweight, very sturdy, and the keys are nicely spaced.

    === PROS ===

    - The keyboard is very slim and adds minimal bulk to the Surface Pro 8 when closed.

    - The keyboard is covered in a very soft Alcantara material that resists fingerprints and smudges.

    - All the keys you would need are included on this keyboard, including an Escape key, function keys, a Windows key, and keys to adjust volume, brightness, etc.

    - The keyboard is backlit with three levels of backlight brightness. Brightness can be adjusted using the F1 key.

    - You can use the keyboard in two positions: at a slight angle with the Slim Pen storage tray hidden, or flat with the storage tray exposed. In the angled position, the top of the keyboard perfectly hides the bottom bezel of the Surface Pro 8 screen, with your Windows task bar directly above the keyboard.

    - The typing experience is great: not too cramped, and there is a nice amount of travel in the keys. The keyboard does not flex or bend in either position (angled or flat) - it remains sturdy while you type.

    - The inclusion of the Slim Pen storage tray is a nice addition, especially if you don't use the Slim Pen very often. It's nice to be able to hide it away and not worry about it falling out or getting lost.

    - The trackpad is very responsive and functional and works perfectly with Windows gestures such as pinching and swiping with multiple fingers.

    - The Slim Pen works very nicely and is perfect for taking notes, drawing, etc. I have used it in a couple of work meetings now to take notes in Microsoft Whiteboard. For this purpose, it's great, but I wouldn't necessarily use the Slim Pen just to navigate around Windows 11. It really excels as a writing or drawing tool.

    === CONS ===

    - The keyboard must be attached for it to work (it is not wireless). Not a huge deal, but it would be nice to have use of the keyboard if you plan to connect the Surface Pro 8 to an external display.

    - I like the trackpad, but I wish it were just a bit larger. Also, it has a "diving board" design, meaning that only the bottom portion of the trackpad is easily clickable. I wish the entire trackpad were clickable.

    - The backlighting is nice to have, but it doesn't get very bright.

    - I wish Microsoft would have found a way to include an additional USB-C port on this keyboard that could be used for charging, similar to what Apple did with the iPad Magic Keyboard.

    === OVERALL ===

    This is an absolute must-have accessory for the Surface Pro 8. If you don't think you'll use the Slim Pen, save yourself a bit of money and buy just the keyboard (instead of this package with the keyboard + pen). As I mentioned previously, the Surface Pro 8 is severely limited as a Windows device without the addition of this keyboard. Luckily, Microsoft has created arguably one of the best tablet keyboards on the market -- one that should have been included with the Surface Pro -- so you will not regret your purchase. Highly recommended.

    Perfect Pair

    ----- Summary -----

    Verdict:

    The latest Surface devices are impressive on their own, but the Surface Pro Signature Keyboard with Slim Pen 2 pairs perfectly for increased versatility and productivity. The keyboard and pen provide an exceptional typing and writing experience. As a Surface Pro X owner, I’m bummed that the Slim Pen 2’s haptic feedback that simulates the feeling of pen on paper is incompatible, but I’d still recommend it. For Pro 8 owners, I can’t think of any cons. Well done, Microsoft.

    Pros:

    - Keyboard is full-size and comfortable to type on

    - Trackpad is large and provides precise control

    - Storage tray for the pen is built into the keyboard and charges the pen

    - Keyboard doubles as a cover for the Surface’s screen

    - Pen is comfortable to hold and accurate

    - Four color options with a nice “Alcantara” material covering each

    Cons:

    - Haptic feedback on the Slim Pen 2 isn’t compatible with the Surface Pro X

    ----- Details -----

    With its sleek and compact design, the Surface Pro Signature Keyboard transforms the Surface Pro 8 or Pro X into a full laptop without the bulk. The comfortable typing experience impressed me. Unlike other tablet keyboard accessories I’ve tried, my hands don’t feel cramped and my typing is accurate. It’s just like a full-size keyboard that you’d expect on a traditional laptop. The trackpad is about the same size and just as precise as you’d find on a laptop as well.

    Powerful magnets snap the keyboard onto a Surface device and show or hide the built-in Slim Pen 2 storage tray. It’s quite clever because showing or hiding the pen storage tray also adjusts the angle of the keyboard. In addition to providing a place for the pen to securely sit, the storage tray wirelessly charges the pen.

    I frequently take notes on my Surface Pro X, and the performance of the Slim Pen 2 is fantastic. It’s comfortable to hold and has pinpoint accuracy. My one complaint is that the friction of the pen tip doesn’t feel like writing on paper. The Slim Pen 2 has a built-in haptic motor that supposedly makes it feel similar to writing on paper, but that feature is only compatible with the Surface Laptop Studio and Surface Pro 8, so as a Surface Pro X owner, that was a bummer. That aside, my Surface Pro X wouldn’t be complete without the keyboard and pen. They work harmoniously with the Surface Pro and are a joy to use.

    An added benefit of the Surface Pro Signature Keyboard is that it serves as a screen cover for the Surface Pro 8 or Pro X. There’s a light magnetic pull that helps keep it closed. The back of the Surface device doesn’t get covered at all, but I think that would make it more difficult to snap on and off, so I understand why it doesn’t. The aluminum body on the Pro 8 and Pro X seems very durable, but if potential damage is a concern, I’d recommend storing it in a sleeve or backpack during transit.

    The Slim Pen 2 is black, but there are four color options available for the Surface Pro Signature Keyboard. I chose Ice Blue, and the other options are Poppy Red, Platinum, or Black. Each is covered in a nice “Alcantara” material which is a suede-like microfiber. The keyboard has a premium look and feel, and I appreciate the different color options which provide a touch of customization to my Surface Pro X.

    2 Z or not 2 Z?

    The Surface Pro 8 is mostly usable even without a physical keyboard, but this is a great complement that enables it to shine as a dual purpose device; a full on work-capable PC when you need it, or fold the the keyboard back and away for a more tidy tablet experience -- movies, music, media, reading, etc.

    The keyboard is fantastic for as thin as it is, I loved the feel and response of the keys. They were satisfactorily tactile for accurate typing but also quiet enough for use in a classroom without broadcasting “Hey everybody, I’m typing over here!” The backlight levels on the keyboard were great for dim-room scenarios.

    The Pen was impressive too, especially so in Microsoft’s Whiteboard app which you can pull up in seconds simply by clicking the button on the tail end of the Pen. It’s also handy for handwriting-recognition input modes where block or cursive was interpreted very reliably.. except the number 2. Indeed, nearly every time I wrote a 2 it was interpreted as a Z. Even after several days of use I still couldn’t “write” and “get” a 2 reliably. That’s more a function I think of Windows handwriting recognition software than the pen, the pen itself wrote and felt about as natural as could be. In drawing modes the pen provided satisfactory pressure sensitivity for at least basic artistic purposes -- I’m not even especially artistic but I loved the pen and drawing experience so much that I think I drew more pictures and wrote more by hand in the first 24 hours, practicing with the pen, than I have otherwise in the last several years combined. To a real artist I think it’d be a real “love-it or leave-it” scenario. Personally, I loved it and found writing and drawing refreshingly rewarding -- that from someone who otherwise spends 12+ hours a day on a keyboard coding -- BASH, PuTTY, Visual Studio Code, Terraform, etc.

    Essential for Surface Owners

    The Surface Keyboard and Pen are both essential accessories for any surface, but even more so this time around with the Surface Pro 8.

    Having that 120hz display on the Pro 8 makes such a big difference to draw and write on with the Surface Slim Pen 2. It is buttery smooth with no latency or lag and more accurate to make those small details shine with every stroke. At first glance I really didn't think the pen would be all that comfortable in my hand but I was seriously wrong. I've enjoyed using it for hours on end to navigate my surface, draw, and jot down notes with ease. This pen also has a haptic motor built in which makes it feel like you're writing on real paper. You can customize the strength of the motor in your settings menu to your preference. When it comes to the pens battery life, There's no need to worry. The keyboard has a cool little magnetic compartment on the top where the pen is stored and charges securely.

    The keyboard feels much more durable than the previous models while still being extremely lightweight and even has a bigger touchpad too. The keys feel great and click with the perfect amount of feedback. It plugs into the surface easily by clicking into place using a magnetic connection. When your surface is not in use the keyboard protects the screen making it even more portable.

    Overall, I highly recommend this bundle to any Surface Pro 8/Pro X owner for a true premium experience.

    Must Have Accessory!!!

    Keyboard and Stylus – Even though the on-screen keyboard on the surface pro 8 works well, the optional Signature Keyboard and the slim pen is amazing and, in my opinion, a must buy. The keyboard clips on to the bottom of the Surface with magnets and the pen stays attached to the keyboard. I have always loved and have been amazed by the pen and keyboard combo from Microsoft. They keyboard is nice and firm, and the keys are responsive and can be lifted a bit to provide a better tying angle. The keyboard also has built-in storage and charger for the pen. They keyboard has a beautiful Alcantara finish and a large and responsive touch pad. The Slim Pen 2 also got some upgrades from the previous model. The pen is slimmer and a bit more tapered at the tip, so it provides for better handling. The pen also provides haptic feedback when used on the screen which was cool and just works so well with the screen. The pen can be used to write notes, feels so much better then writing on paper, or even just have fun and be artistic, (if my 7-year-old can do that on that with the pen, imagine what you can do, see picture) and serves as a screen protector for your tablet/laptop when not in use.

    Excellent add-on. But too expensive.

    I got the Poppy Red keyboard cover for my 2021 Surface Pro X (SPX) and I love it. Naturally, it mates perfectly to the SPX and transforms it from a relatively heavy 1.7lb tablet to a 2.5lb lightweight laptop.

    The Poppy Red isn't as red as in the pictures which was kind of disappointing.

    The Alcantara material is dense and very soft, and it does a good job keeping dirt and grime away. When the time comes to clean it, Microsoft recommends mixing two parts of water to one part of mild soap and rubbing it gently.

    The keyboard is well-spaced out, comfortable to type on fast, and the keys have good feedback. The travel distance is actually pretty decent considering how slim the keyboard cover is as is the uptake rate. I also liked how quiet it was.

    The glass touchpad is super smooth and my fingers glide across it effortlessly. I set up my own custom 3- and 4-finger gestures and taps and everything worked flawlessly.

    The Surface Slim Pen 2 fits neatly into its slot and doesn't fall out thanks to the strong magnet.

    I've used several different types of digital pens before (Galaxy Note, HP Chromebook, HP Spectre, Apple iPad) and I have to say that this Surface Pen is the best so far. It's light, very responsive, and easy to use.

    At $279.99 (as of 2021-10-19), this add-on is quite expensive and Microsoft should really either add it to the SPX package (my first choice) or lower the price way down. Despite the hefty price tag, I must recommend this to owners of the SPX because it extends the usefulness of the SPX and user experience so, so much.

    Great Addition to Surface Pro

    Microsoft has released a new Surface Pro Signature Keyboard with Slim Pen 2 to go with the new line of Surface Pro tablets/laptops. This package includes the keyboard, pen, and thin cardboard information sheet which shows some quick facts about the product. It comes with a 1-year manufacturer's warranty.

    PROS:

    ---------

    * Connects easily to the Surface Pro using magnets (I'm using the X with 8GB RAM).

    * The keyboard has a small slot to put the pen in which is held in place when the keyboard is closed.

    * The keyboard is quite convenient for us that use typing skills instead of typing on a screen. Add in the mouse capability and that's even better at times.

    * The "felt" surface of the keyboard allows for one side of the Surface to be placed on a table without it feeling like the Surface is going to get dented or scratched up.

    * The keyboard keys do light up if needed.

    * Protects screen when not in use.

    CONS:

    ---------

    * The keyboard is flimsy, and though responsive, does feel a bit cheap. If you don't have a flat surface while typing, it may bend a bit while doing so. A more rigid back side would be great.

    * Would like more protection that might wrap around the whole PC if needed, not just the keyboard/screen side.

    OTHER OBSERVATIONS:

    ------------------------------------

    * I do not typically use a pen for much on my PCs, but after using, I can see how it can come in handy for drawing and designs in certain programs. I used it a few times; however with my profession, I likely won't get a lot of use out of it. They keyboard will be used more than anything.

    CONCLUSION:

    ============

    If you get the Surface Pro, just get the keyboard. There are so many times where you need one, and it's simple to hook up and use. It will also protect your screen at the same time when closed. If you need a better mouse, you can always use the USB-C port (with USB-C hub/adapter) to make that happen. It's a simple product but offers a lot.

    Requisite Accessory for Microsoft Surface Computin

    Pros:

    * Material Design. The keyboard (and my selected color) perfectly complement the Surface Pro X with which it is paired. I've owned previous versions of the keyboard (with older versions of the Surface) and think this material will hold up better to wear. To be clear, the material of any Surface Keyboard I've used has been exceptional; but they don't always clean well. I think this keyboard will do fine and only time will tell.

    * Pen. Though it is an included accessory I didn't anticipate using much, it is definitely is pretty well designed. It is even more responsive and intuitive than predecessors and tucks away nicely into the keyboard (accessory). It is magnetic and can be placed on the side of a Surface computer or kept safely in the cubby located on the Surface Keyboard. The pen's tips can be replaced as needed depending on the use. It also features buttons along the side and at the end. These buttons serve to execute short-cuts. The end, depending on the application, can be used as an "eraser" with even greater ease than a real pencil and its eraser end. I'm glad the pen is included as I really forgot about how convenient it can be to draw up sketches or jot down notes in OneNote.

    * Strong Magnets. The Surface Keyboard is connected to a Surface computing device along the long edge using a proprietary connector, some guidance tabs, and strong magnets. The keyboard in previous iterations could fall off with enough centrifugal force when handling the Surface. This version is significantly stronger and is almost too difficult to remove. I'm not worried about it falling off when I don't expect it to.

    * Comfortable. The keyboard itself has nice tactile feedback while using. Though it has been a while since I have used a mobile computing device like a Surface, I have to say that it was quite easy to get into the groove typing away. I've always been a fan of desktop ergonomic keyboards but switched to a traditional keyboard a few years ago for work reasons. I think this made the transition to the Surface Keyboard easier as the keyboard and its keys are spacious enough to feel like a full-size keyboard.

    * Large Touchpad. I've never been a fan of touchpads. In fact, I paired my Surface Pro X with a Microsoft Arc mouse for regular use. But before I purchased the Arc mouse, I got a lot of time in with the touchpad. I have to say that the increased surface area, the haptic feedback for button interactions, and the gesture movements work quite well. While I prefer the use of the Arc mouse for some functions (easier for me to play some games or interact with Excel cells), I think I could comfortably say that I don't need it. The touchpad is better than I expected (remember).

    Cons:

    * I really can't think of any cons for this accessory.

    Wish:

    * Though the materials used to construct this keyboard I am sure will wear well, I think it would be fun if Microsoft offered a keyboard with a metallic backside. That would be neat. Although I am sure there are weight implications, etc.

    Use:

    I use this device when I am on the go and need a full computing device. The Surface Keyboard is a necessity for use of this device as a work computer, IMO. You could pair Bluetooth keyboards or make use of a dock via the USB-C connector on the Surface computers, but a regular keyboard would be too unwieldy and not travel well. The Surface Keyboard provides svelt form and function with the added benefit of providing protection for your Surface.

    Works but misleading advertising

    keyboard works and is very clicky as advertised, but the keyboard uses brown switches not silvers, weird thing to lie about, it does come with 8 spare silvers that aren't clicky at all, so I'm just confused why its advertised as such.

    My first mechanical keyboard. It's superb!

    I've needed a new keyboard for perhaps a year now. I never used a mechanical one before and wanted to give one a try, but put off getting one because of the cost (I'm hesitant to pay $100+). When I saw the EVGA Z15 on sale for $40, and saw that it had good reviews on rtings.com and elsewhere, I jumped at the chance.

    I never knew that typing on a keyboard could be such a joy. This thing is *perfect*! The keys feel very solid, but still very sensitive. It takes no effort at all to type on this thing, yet accidentally touching keys you didn't intend won't actuate them! At first I was put off by the clicky-clack, but now I kind of like it. I haven't tried the 8 linear switches yet that it comes with.

    This keyboard includes a couple of extra features I've never seen advertised elsewhere. Every key has an optional secondary function, activated by holding down the "function" key. You can use the EVGA Unleash software to setup macros for these secondary functions. I'm learning German on duolingo and found these macros very useful in typing those umlaut-vowels.

    In addition, there are 8 "profiles" in total, where each profile can be configured with a different totally configurable lighting effect and different set of secondary functions for your keys. Really, really nice!

    The only thing is... this EVGA Unleash software is extremely buggy. It often resets my RGB profiles and deletes the macros I spent a long time setting up. Thankfully, it isn't like Logitech's software. This doesn't stay running in the background - you only load it when you want to configure the RGB or macros. I'm not going to dock a star for this, however, because it isn't what I bought the keyboard for anyway.

    You might not like the over-the-top "gamer" look of this keyboard, or that by default its lit up more colorful than a Christmas tree. I don't mind it though. I actually kind of like it. This isn't a keyboard I'd use in a professional office setting though due to the aesthetics and the loud clicky-clack, but for your home computer - even a "work from home" computer (I do software development) - it's perfect and an absolute pleasure to use.

    Sensitive, but solid

    More or less a standard RGB keyboard. The keys are much more sensitive than those of my previous keyboard, which can at times result in unintended key presses. However, the RGB lighting is nice, and the keyboard itself is certainly functional. The wrist pad is hard and detachable, using a magnet to attach to the keyboard. The keyboard base is metal, which is likely the cause of it being much heavier than the kind of keyboard you might find in an office or school, for example.

    What does this keyboard lack? Only rgb it has is preset :( Not exactly what I was expecting but...the hot swappable keys more than make up for it. Awesome to see something so easily fixed. Only wish the EVGA software could set the LED's better.

    Clickity Clak, my new keyboard is back

    I have had the non-plus version for years. It was time to replace the old one as it was starting to stutter(not sure if it's just worn out, or the transmitter was dieing. Well the new one is here and the connection is strong and accurate. And all is well again. I did deduct a star for this keyboard using smaller arrows for up and down. Guess people no longer use these keys and thus, Logitech mini sized them for those who voted for bigger something else. Guess I'll adapt.

    Great keyboard

    Yeah it’s great, but you can’t tap on the track pad to click which is a deal breaker, I kept it but if I knew befor hand would have looked for one where you could click on track pad

    Perfect Media Room Keyboard

    This is a great, compact keyboard for anyone who wants to hook up their computer to their main entertainment display.

    The left click button on the upper left hand side of the keyboard allows you to hold the keyboard kind of like a controller. This was really smart design, especially for web browsing and navigation.

    Typing with this on your lap is a bit of a challenge, but I went in knowing that navigating my desktop from the couch was going to have a few drawbacks and wasn’t disappointed with the compact size.

    Great Keyboard!

    I love the fact that it is a small keyboard and fits in my backpack. It works great and the keys have a great smooth feel when typing.

    Surface Pro Keyboard

    This keyboard is pretty standard to the surface pro keyboards. It is required for the 8, so if you are buying a Surface Pro 8 and have one of the older keyboards you will need to upgrade to this model.

    Good keyboard but trackpad is too small

    I tried using just the trackpad instead of a mouse for a full 8 hour workday and just couldn't do it, trackpad is too small and my hands started getting cramped up. Besides that the keyboard is good.

    An absolute must with your surface pro. And it protects the screen. Can’t imagine not getting this type cover

    Good if you text chat alot

    I bought this for half a million years at March was more of a last minute purchase and anything, It does connect nicely to my xbox series X controller but it is kind of large now I have trouble wrapping my hands around the handles

    A step up with performance!

    This is great. Super soft buttons, feels like a pencil eraser. Microsofts beyboards buttons are a hard plastic. The back light of green on the black keyboard is much more appealing to the eyes vs the white that Microsoft gives on theirs. No issues with latency. Who cares that it needs a usb plug in doggle, I had no idea that my Xbox has 4 usb ports on the back!!!!! Love this device!!

    Almost a necessity

    It’s awesome. For me with big hands I can’t attach it to my controller and be comfortable. It beats clicking away to pick movies and sign on. Buttons are responsive I would recommend if you hate selecting individual letter on the screen
