    Great Addition to any PC Gamer!

    This bundle is the perfect holiday gift to either yourself or another person.

    I exclusively game, at the moment, on a gaming laptop and purchased this bundle to have an external keyboard and needed a wired mouse.

    I am blown away by the quality of the keyboard for the price point this is set at. The mechnical keys have a nice tactile feel and are noisy enough for me to hear over the loud cooling fans on my laptop (Asus ROG). The iCue software and lighting link options are incredibly intuitive and fun to play with the many features and quirks too.

    If youre like me and didnt want to wear out your laptop's keyboard from gaming, this would be a great option to consider!

    Great package.

    Absolutely Great product. The M55 mouse is a great product to me because its comfortable for those of us with larger hands. The placement of the programmable buttons on the mouse is fantastic too. The K60 is amazing as well. The way the mechanical keys feel and sound is very satisfying. The programmable RGB is an awesome feature and works great for me because I like to play in lower light settings.

    First 65% Keyboard and it is AWESOME!

    I bought both this version and the version with the yellow switches. I like this one so much better. Even though the clicking can get a little loud, I type so much more accurately on the green switch version.

    WRT the keyboard size, this is my very first 65% keyboard. While I use this primarily for gaming, it also works well for my work. While I am upset I no longer have the numpad, I have mapped the left side of the keyboard to be very similar to a traditional numpad when I hold down FN.

    Great build quality. I was surprised to see the top and bottom of the case were not plastic. I can imagine people would dislike the weight but I would feel better about having this in my bag than the usual plastic frame boards.

    Already love these keyboard after a few days. The keys have a great tactile feel to them. The case is solid. This a great lower cost alternative to the corsairs and logitechs that are on average $50 more.

    HyperX Gaming Keyboard Review

    So, let me give you a bit of backstory. I had a Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 before I got this keyboard. Felt in love with my first keyboard, but there were some things that I wanted different. Firstly, my first keyboard was full size, had Cherry MX Speed Silvers, and it was all white. So then I did some researching on finding a new keyboard that was all dark but a bit smaller for my desk to give me more mouse space. I went through a lot, from Logitech, Corsair, Razor and even Red dragon, but then I saw this one and realized it was the best one for me. This keyboard is all around great, I love the switches, these Aqua switches are just the best if you want tactile switches that aren't too loud. Very solid price point for this item, however I got this on sale for only $80 when it was $90 originally. I would definitely recommend this keyboard to anyone who wants something different, and also I will leave a vid, hopefully it works :)

    Such a crispy keyboard

    I am beyond satisfied with this keyboard, I wanted a quiet clicky feel and sound (tactile) which is why I went with the tactile aqua switches. Linear switches (cherry) are also nice but it just didn't give that feel that tactile switches do, and man does this keyboard feel so good. It's so satisfying to feel, hear, and look with its amazing RGB. It's also ten keyless (TKL) which makes it more compact and gives me more room on my desk and for aesthetics. It was so good that I had to get white pudding key caps to look even better.

    This keyboard is by far my favorite keyboard ever. I went from a Razer Cynosa Chroma, a Razer BlackWidow Elite, to this keyboard. It does take a little bit of adjusting because Steelseries makes their own custom sized keycaps but the feel of this keyboard is really nice and extremely smooth.

    This guy is absolutely phenomenal. I’ve never owned a gaming or mechanical keyboard before, and I’m so glad I shelled out a little bit more for this one in particular. The colors are gorgeous— really bright and vibrant— and the keys have a great feel and sound to them. The metal frame makes it quite sturdy as well. I love it!

    Magnificent

    This keyboard has given me more than I truly expected. I went from a standard, cheap, mem-chanical keyboard from Cooler Master to this absolute BEAST of a keyboard, and let me tell you, it was quite the worthy investment. What an upgrade that was, truly. The pudding keycaps blend very nicely with my setup, and even with all of the lights on in my room, the RGB shines bright and divine! Since the beginning of my PC gaming endeavors, I’ve always envied my friends and those around me who had mechanical keyboards, and this is definitely fulfilling. Not only does it sound so satisfying, it is very responsive and quick. I, sincerely, rate this keyboard a solid 10/10, and I would 100% recommend it to anyone looking for a more than decent keyboard for a more than reasonable price!

    Great Mechanical keyboard

    Absolutely love the keyboard! The RBG lightning is vibrant and with red style keys the clicking is softer and not over the top. You can change the brightness and the way the RBG displays all through the keyboard. There is a slight weight due to steel frame, which makes it very sturdy.

    Amazing keyboard! The feel of the buttons are butter! Super smooth an have a great click! If you go to the Hyperx website you can download the beta application so you can customize the egg colors to do what you want. Crazy amount of customizations. The keyboard is made of metal besides the keys an feels worth it’s weight! It’s a keyboard so you don’t have to worry about it going out on ya.

    This keyboard is great. It’s well built, the keys are super bouncy and make a satisfying clicking sound. I love the configuration of the buttons at the top and it’s super easy to change the colours.

    This keyboard is HEAVY. Like, this thing could totally be used as a weapon if someone breaks into your house, or if you really want to destroy your monitor after dying 15 times in a row.

    If all HyperX keyboards are like this, I will definitely keep them in mind the next time I need one.

    Awesome keyboard - Use keycap puller!

    Beautiful keyboard and feels great. When you want to clean your keyboard or change keys, just make sure to BUY AN ACTUAL KEYCAP PULLER. I manmade my own puller and destroyed the stems to a lot of the keycaps unfortunately. Thankfully they sell a pack of new keycaps.

    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

    Wonderful keyboard!

    I actually bought this for my brother, he got a PC, it came with a mediocre keyboard and mouse and he didn’t really like it so I went to Best Buy...just to look and I ended up walking out with a keyboard and a mouse pad! The keyboard is absolutely amazing and he loves it, he treats it like his baby! Wonderful setup along with the mouse pad!

    Practical

    The Omen gaming keyboard is an excellent size for those with clumsy fingers on the smaller keyboard, that comes with the bundled deal, therefore making it much more practical. It is easily maneuver when playing games and definitely very practical to use as a typewriter. Would recommend it to anyone that’s not looking for the more expensive, flashy, gaming keyboards.

    Finally – a Solid, High Quality Wireless Keyboard!

    The Logitech MX Keys cordless keyboard is simply the finest computer keyboard I have ever had the pleasure of typing on! It is loaded with great features and will make every keyboarding task so much easier to accomplish that you will soon wonder why you waited to replace your old, inferior keyboard with this marvel.

    I have to confess that I just love Logitech products – they are always superbly engineered, are packed with great features and have always given me reliable service.

    Logitech was founded in Apples, Switzerland in 1981. Its first product was a computer mouse in 1982 that was adopted by several computer manufacturers (including Apple.) Later it was the first company to offer a replacement mouse to the consumer market. Logitech introduced wireless mice, optical mice and trackballs. By 2008 Logitech had produced over one billion mice.

    The Logitech mouse was followed by a wide variety of high quality products including a handheld scanner, keyboards, a digital camera, webcams, speakers and microphones. It acquired Harmony, the industry standard for programmable multi-equipment remote control devices, in 2004, then purchased Ultimate Ears, a creator of outstanding Bluetooth speakers, in 2008, bought Jaybird, a premier manufacturer of very fine Bluetooth earphones, in 2016 and most recently, acquired Astro Gaming in 2017.

    Here are the key features of this wonderful keyboard:

    • Logitech MX Keys wireless keyboard Y-R0073 (receiver C-U0008)

    • Dual connectivity (Logitech Unifying USB receiver or Bluetooth)

    • Wireless range approximately 33 feet

    • Rechargeable 1500 mAh lithium ion battery power

    • Typical usage on a full charge: 10 days (with backlighting), up to 5 months (backlighting off)

    • Includes 54 inch long USB-A to USB-C charging cable

    • Perfect Stoke scissor keys, spherically dished to match finger tip shape, 1.8 mm travel

    • Expected durability: 10 million keypresses per key

    • Keyboard compatible with Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android, Linux operating systems

    • Easy-Switch keys to connect up to three devices and to switch between them, allowing seamless workflow across multiple devices

    • Logitech Options software to customize key mapping

    • Backlighted keys with proximity sensor to activate as hands approach keyboard

    • Backlight level adjusts automatically to changing ambient light or manually

    • On/off switch, caps lock light, battery indicator light

    • Designed to provide advanced functionality when paired with MX Master 3 wireless mouse

    • Dimensions: 16.93 W x 5.20 D x 0.83 inches H

    • Weight: 28.6 ounces

    • One year warranty

    The first thing you will notice is that this keyboard is solid! It weighs nearly two pounds and stays put where you place it on your work surface. This is really important for fast, efficient typing. Too many wireless keyboards are flimsy and slide around every time you put your hands on them. This keyboard feels like a finely crafted piece of machinery. If you like typing with a keyboard on your lap, this is your soulmate. It has the heft to provide you that all-important stable typing surface.

    This is also a very attractive device with beautifully sculpted lines. When you first place your fingers onto the keys you will note how perfectly the surface matches your fingertips. It has a slight elevation in the rear but is not adjustable. Some might prefer a bit more upward angle but I found it very comfortable. The feel of the keys and the travel distance for each key stoke is the best I have encountered on any keyboard since the long-gone days of the IBM typewriters.

    The black matt finish of the keyboard is non-reflective and is designed to resist discoloration from heat and chemicals. The white lettering on the keys is very easy to read against this background. The keyboard includes all of the special keys found on both PC and on Mac keyboards so users of either system will feel right at home.

    But to me, the star feature is the automatic backlighting which magically turns on when my fingers near the keyboard. I often go to my computer at night and having a keyboard which lights up is just a real treat. No more fumbling around trying to type an odd symbol in the dark. And the lighting on the keys is just ideal. Each letter or symbol is perfectly legible thanks to the superb backlighting!

    The ability to pair with three devices at once is another nice feature. I linked it to my desktop PC, my Fire tablet and a laptop I use frequently. This gives me the freedom to use multiple devices without changing my interface (keyboard and mouse) and from the same position at my desk.

    Another very useful feature is the rechargeable battery power used by the keyboard. There are few things as frustrating as working with a wireless keyboard and discovering that the battery has become depleted and that you have no replacements handy. More than once I have had to scavenge a needed battery from a remote control so that I could continue working on my PC. That will not happen with the Logitech MX Keys since it recharges from any USB port and you can use it while the recharging takes place. You can expect ten days to two weeks from a full charge if you use the backlighting feature and several months if you shut off the backlight completely. But why would you ever consider depriving yourself of such a cool feature?

    There are many other slick features (programmable function keys, copy and paste from one device to another, applying an alternate set of mouse controls, etc.) but you will find the core features described above to be more than sufficient justification to buy this superb keyboard. I am delighted to give the amazing Logitech MX Keys keyboard my full and enthusiastic recommendation!

    I love using this with my mac and Win10 laptops

    The MX Keys looks great and is just slightly larger than my trusty old A1243 Apple aluminum USB keyboard from 2007. I like a full-size keyboard + number pad and preferred the minimal size of the A1243 keyboard with no batteries/charging, but the MX Keys keyboard is so much nicer to use and the keys are backlit.

    A full charge using the included USB-C cable should last 10 days or up to 5 months with backlighting off -if you are into that sort of thing. I don’t need to charge the keyboard often.

    The dished center and smooth edges of the keys are very comfortable. I like the response of the keys while typing and they are quiet. The keyboard feels sturdy and has enough weight to stay put and not float around your desk. The backlight is a huge upgrade from my old keyboard.

    The keyboard backlight can be set manually to one of eight settings (including off), but it can automatically adjust intensity based on lighting conditions. The keyboard has a proximity sensor that detects your approaching fingers and automatically illuminates the keys. The keys will fade out about 5 seconds after your hands leave the keyboard, saving battery life. If your hand is still while resting on the keyboard, the backlight will time out after a longer period of time. The light is on again as soon as you lift a finger to type. I find overnight, the keyboard wakes from a deeper sleep and the backlight remains off instead of my usual on but lowest setting. I know it doesn’t sound like a big deal but not having to tap a key to wake the backlight is great. The timing of the backlight fade in/out working with the proximity detector works perfectly. Nailed it.

    Easy Switch is great. You can pair the MX Keys keyboard with up to three computers using Bluetooth or use the included Unifying receiver. Quickly switch between computers by tapping one of three Easy-Switch buttons on the keyboard. It is very easy to use this keyboard with two computers side by side. I use our windows 10 laptops on a stand next to my iMac and it is so nice being able to use the same keyboard for both instead of reaching over to the laptop keyboard.

    I’ve switched back and forth between Bluetooth and Unifying receiver connections on Mojave and Windows 10 and see no benefit to using the Unifying receiver and tying up a USB port if your computer supports Bluetooth. The keyboard remembers button assignments when switching between Bluetooth and Unifying connections or if you remove the device and add again later.

    I love this keyboard. I use this with two windows 10 laptops next to my iMac and using the same keyboard between two operating systems increases productivity. Wonderful that everything stays paired and I can instantly switch between machines with a quick tap of a button.

    *Logitech Options software:

    The Logitech Options software is easy to use, and it can automatically back up your settings to the cloud. Much nicer than their buggy G Hub software. The settings for the “MX Keys Wireless Keyboard” are organized on the Keyboard panel. There is also an Easy-Switch panel but that only displays the Operating system and computer name assigned to each Easy Switch channel.

    The Keyboard panel is straightforward. You can map custom actions to the 13 keys in the top row right of the esc key. You can also map different actions to the 4 keys above the numeric keypad. Selecting one of the keys presents a pop-up list with the Default key action, Keystroke assignment and Open application actions but you can expand the list to 36 actions including None.

    You can select the fn key to setup Duolink with a compatible mouse. This is the most powerful feature of the keyboard if you have the MX Master 3 mouse. The feature toggles a second set of gestures and button actions on the mouse when you hold the keyboard FN key.

    I modified the Screen capture key to capture Window instead of Full screen. The default action for the Lock key did nothing in Mojave so I set it to keystroke “Opt + Cmd + L” that I use as a Keyboard App shortcut to lock the screen. I’ve never found MacOS Launchpad useful, so I changed the key to App Expose. There is a checkbox to use all F1-F12 keys as standard function keys instead of media keys. The keyboard defaults to media keys. You can easily toggle between FN or Media keys by pressing the fn + esc keys and then again to toggle back. You can temporarily toggle the action of the top row by pressing fn + one of the keys.

    There have been a few times we experienced lag. I notice it when toggling the top row media/function keys. My son plays games on Steam and mentioned he experiences some lag. When he presses the same key over and over really fast and it didn’t keep up.

    *Using the MX Keys keyboard with the MX Master 3 mouse:

    Duolink is a great feature. You hold the FN key on the MX Keys while you move the MX Master 3 mouse or click the buttons. You can define another complete set of actions and gestures for the mouse and toggle them with the FN key.

    Tapping the Easy-Switch buttons on the MX Keys to switch between computers won’t automatically switch the MX Master 3 mouse. You will need to switch both. It would have been a great feature to automatically switch the mouse when you switch the keyboard like a KVM switch.

    *Using the MX Keys keyboard in close proximity to Powerplay wireless charging system:

    If you use the Powerplay to charge a mouse you will need to keep the edge of the MX Keys keyboard at least an inch away from the edge of the Powerplay charging base. When the Powerplay is on (plugged in) it interferes with the MX Keys proximity detector, keeping the backlight on all the time. My keyboard’s proximity detector is affected by the wireless charging pad if they are closer than 3/4 of an inch.

    *Compatibility with Java Minecraft:

    The Duolink feature doesn’t work well with Java apps, at least not Minecraft on Mojave. Using the “fn” key on the MX Keys keyboard while playing Minecraft can enable the Duolink feature on my MX Master 3 mouse and it stays on, like I am still holding the “fn” key. This continues even after switching apps. I must switch out of Java (Minecraft) tap the “fn” several times and/or press “fn + esc” to toggle the media/function keys several times while clicking the mouse to get Duolink “unstuck”.

    I normally leave my keyboard set to use the top row as Function keys. If you press the “fn” key while pressing a F1-F12 key the “fn” temporarily toggles the Media/Function behavior. This works perfectly in all my apps except Java Minecraft. Instead of using the “fn” key to temporarily toggle F12 to Volume Down I must press “fn + esc” to completely switch my top row of Function keys to Media keys, make the volume adjustment, then press “fn + esc” again to toggle the row of Media keys back to Function keys. Pressing the “fn” key even while pressing “esc” in java can result in the MX mouse switching into the stuck Duolink mode.

    Strange behavior that doesn’t happen with any other app and it doesn’t happen with my other keyboard. Logitech Options and Logitech G Hub software both have compatibility issues with Java Minecraft. Commands and customizations get assigned to the launcher app instead of Java -the actual game.

    Best keyboard for Mac Users (or anyone)

    I use a MacBook Pro hooked up to a 34” curved monitor on my desk at home. As I’ve always used Apple’s Keyboards I will mostly talk about how this compares to that. If you own a Mac and are looking to change it up I highly recommend this. I had been using an Apple Magic Keyboard and Apple Mouse and recently switched to the Logitech MX Master 2S mouse when I heard about the MX Keys keyboard. I decided to give it a try and I’m so glad I did. I like it a lot more than the Magic Keyboard 2 in Space Gray. It looks great with my setup and the backlighting works really well. I leave it off during the day and turn it on at night to improve battery life. The fit and finish is excellent, it’s very solid metal and heavy, it doesnt’ move around on my desk at all. It feels like Apple’s build quality. I have used Magic Keyboards since 2007 starting with the original and now I own several of the Magic Keyboard 2 and this MX Keys is the best replacement I’ve found that mimics the typing on the Magic keyboard with smooth scissor mechanisms and short key travel while making improvements. The little dimples in the middle of each key are really comfortable when typing. I like that the Logitech is slightly more angled than the newest version of the Magic Keyboard. I find the newest version a little too flat, this has about the angle of the first Apple keyboard that had the battery compartment. This also has lots of additional functions, all of the media keys work perfectly and can be programmed to other things, for example I have one programmed to put my system to sleep. This keyboard can also be paired to three different devices and you can switch easily. I’ve used it with my iPad Pro a few times on my desk but it’s really to heavy to be mobile. I hope this comparison helps some who are deciding between Apple’s keyboard and this as I think it improves on it in most ways.

    Same performance - smaller footprint

    First off, this is my third or fourth Logitech keyboard (and mouse), so I'm pretty much a loyal customer. Not that I haven't tried other brands, but I haven't yet found another brand that is even close to as good. The quality is a given, so I'm going to focus on the difference between Logitech keyboards. I've positioned the MX in front of the K800, and you can see that the MX is similar from left to right and about 3" narrower from front to back. I like the smaller size because that leaves more room for your mouse, page stand or whatever else you may need near your keyboard. The actual keyboard itself is the same size and the difference is in the front palm rest, which you could substitute with your own choice, and the rear switch /battery level panel, which is really just wasted space. The on-off switch on the MX is on the back right of the keyboard and slides horizontally. It's easy to feel-find and has a slight "click" instead of a "mushy slide" as the K800 has. There is just one green LED light on the top right that flashes while charging and stays constant when charged. I can't tell you what happens when the keyboard needs to be recharged because I've used it for 3 weeks with no appreciable battery drain. Although the MX is smaller than the K800, It weighs as much, if not more. Possibly because there is a 1" x 1" "spine" which runs along the bottom rear and serves as the rear "legs" I suspect that is where the batteries are as well. The batteries are not meant to be replaced, and the unit looks as if it's a sealed unit. In any case, the overall "feel" is very solid with no flexing even with a little extra attempted twist. The Keys are adequately backlit with a battery saving pause-shut off feature similar to previous Logi backlit models, and are almost flush to the panel. They are minimum travel so sausage-fingered galoots like me have to always be careful of the hated double (even triple) key. There also isn't a lot of open space between the keys for "debris" to hide. The peripheral keys are laid out a little differently as they have both Mac and Win labels. There is also an interesting set of 3 buttons across the top for 1, 2 and 3 screen multi-screening, although I've not yet used that feature. Overall this is another high quality Logitech keyboard. Not an "all that" upgrade, but a good solid choice to replace ageing or inferior keyboards with Logitech "rock solid" quality and reliability.

    Your Home Office’s Upmarket Upgrade

    Logitech is one of the very few peripheral brands that’s survived, and indeed thrived, through four decades of personal computing. Revered for quality products relative to their price, they have inroads to most of the major desktop peripheral and laptop accessory categories, often delivering one of the best value propositions in the category. It was only in the last few years that Logitech began trying for more premium market niches with the introduction of the MX Master mouse series, putting its engineering might into a device for those seeking a next-level device.

    The MX Keys Advanced Wireless Illuminated Keyboard launches alongside the third iteration of the brand’s MX Master computer mouse, completing the premium, wireless desktop setup. With a workflow-enhancing trick up its sleeve, this low-profile, full-size, backlit keyboard is a wonderful addition to the home office setup no matter what OS you use, even if they mix and match.

    - Unboxing and Setup

    The most noticeable aspect of the MX Keys Wireless Keyboard is its weight. This is a surprisingly heavy keyboard given its slim profile and shallow keys, which gives it a premium feel and holds the keyboard in place on your desk. Logitech includes a 4.5-foot USB-C cable in the box for recharging. An included, pre-paired Logitech Unifying Receiver lets you connect immediately and start using the keyboard in a standard device mode for either Windows or Mac computers, but the manual indicates further functionality requires a download and installation of Logitech Options software.

    The Logitech Options software is a 200MB download that, as strictly a driver companion, would be the weakest part of the entire Logitech MX experience. It requires an account to be created or linked to a Google or Facebook account to use the software, and doing so backs up your settings to Logitech’s own cloud to let you sync your keyboard settings across devices. The software is somewhat basic and allows for the usual litany of function key reassignments, but besides Logitech Flow there’s little that the software adds to the MX Keyboard experience.

    A nice feature of the Logitech’s MX device line is that they can be paired to 3 different devices once configured with the Logitech Options software. The keyboard can be paired via Bluetooth to any compatible device and this connection saved to any of the three device slots on the keyboard. These slots can also store a pairing to any Logitech Unifying Receiver and switching between them is a quick button-press along the top of the keyboard.

    - Design & Typing

    The low-profile keyboard mimics those included with high-end all-in-one computers right down to the materials quality, and the typing experience is about on-par overall, though it excels in some areas and falls a bit short in others.

    Touch-typing is a joy on this keyboard. Each of the key tops has a concave divot that adds much more to the experience than I thought it would, as this combines with the “chiclet” style keys to almost mindlessly adjust your finger positioning while typing and stay on target. It doesn’t seem like a keyboard that I’d be able to set speed records on, mind you, but in day to day use it feels quite natural.

    Unfortunately, the keyboard falls a bit short on tactile feel. Each key switch appears to be a “scissor” style of Logitech’s own design, as prominently featured on the box, but I can’t honestly tell these too far apart from a rubber-dome membrane style keyboard. It’s not to say the keys are bad by any stretch, but the resulting feel under the fingers will be merely adequate for those accustomed to mechanical keyboard switches. That said, these scissor style switches feel great for how little throw they need (I would guess a little over 2mm each) - I would compare this favorably to a good chiclet style keyboard from a gaming laptop.

    While the key selection seemed appropriate at first glance, mimicking a standard 102-key computer keyboard and adding a few function keys over the numpad, Windows users will lose the Print Screen and Pause-Break keys. Probably not an issue for most users, but worth mentioning.

    - Logitech Flow

    Logitech Options’ killer feature is Logitech Flow. Essentially a software-based keyboard-video-mouse (KVM) switch, Flow lets you control two computers using a single set of Logitech MX (and presumably other Logitech-branded) devices. While the trick would be neat enough in itself to control two computers, the software synchronizes both machines’ clipboards automatically, allowing seamless copy-paste and drag-and-drop integration between them. This works for both Windows and Macintosh machines, and you can indeed mix-and-match operating systems. The only limitations to Flow are that it must be used with two machines on the same local network, and both machines must be on and awake.

    Flow was surprisingly easy to set up and sync between computers. In my case I used my MX Master 3 wireless mouse to start the pairing (you’ll need to have at least one device that has a profile saved for each machine using Flow) and once enabled I had no trouble using a single mouse pointer and keyboard between two machines. The MX Keys worked flawlessly and was just as responsive once focus changed to the “remote” machine as the local. I can see this being incredibly useful for those juggling multiple computers for work.

    - Wireless

    The wireless range on the keyboard to a Unifying Receiver will vary based on interference - if it’s installed on a rear USB port on a desktop tower it may lose connection much easier than when it’s installed on the front. Regardless, the keyboard’s range exceeded 15 feet in my testing with multiple obstructions and did not drop keypresses.

    While this is by no means a gaming keyboard, a slight bit of latency was noticeable as I typed out this review, perhaps two or three frames (33-50ms) between a keypress and characters appearing on-screen. With a different, directly-wired keyboard this latency was non-existent. Logitech includes a USB-A to USB-C cable with the MX Keys that I plugged in hoping to mitigate the latency by using it as a wired keyboard, but unfortunately the port only charges its internal battery (though the cable did work for data transfer between my phone and PC). This device should be kept strictly to non-gaming tasks.

    - Bottom Line

    Gamers and mechanical keyboard aficionados need not apply, but for everyone else, Logitech’s MX Keys Advanced Wireless Illuminated Keyboard is all the keyboard you’ll need for home computers. The look, feel, and performance all match up to premium computer brands while maintaining compatibility with nearly all of them. What would have been an appropriate value at an MSRP of $99.99 becomes a great one when multiple device profiles and Flow capability are factored in; this could replace multiple computer keyboards in a single go. Logitech’s push upmarket into premium territory continues with the MX Keys Advanced, and thus comes highly recommended!

    Great minimal typing keyboard.

    So far so good, this keyboard performs great, for typing, I prefer these flat styled keyboards for typing, I like the minimal noise, and this is perfect. Wireless is awesome, battery is great.

    I guess only 2 cons:

    -Not great for gaming, but I already expected that from it, thats why I have another dedicated gaming keyboard for that.

    - Backlit doesn't stay on all the time, it does turn off a few seconds after your last key input. I guess it's to save batery, so not so bad.

    The Best WFH Keyboard

    I work from home and have a company issued work computer and also a PC & a Mac that are personal use. With this keyboard I have full functionality of all 3 computers with just 1x Keyboard & Mouse (Logi MX Anywhere 2s). Unlike in the past where you had to manually click the connection to jump between computers this Keyboard/Mouse will just Flow (That is the Logitech software name and it fits!) between them seamlessly! I did turn on the command to make the control key necessary to jump between them as I have a lot if windows up and it was difficult to control without this. Couldn't be happier or recommend this keyboard highly enough! Great feel and function, works on PC & Mac... What's not to love!!! My advice... Buy it now and you'll never regret it!!!

    Note: occasionally I have to restart the Mac to keep it going but that doesn't bother me as it work seamlessly all day everyday!

    I have a month of heavy daily use on this so its been tested!

    I like it more than my Microsoft Arc keyboard

    I was having a hard time seeing the keys on my old Microsoft Arc wireless keyboard. My new Logitech MX Keys keyboard solves that problem. The back-lit keys are a treat to my eyes.

    This Logitech Keyboard is heavy compared to my old MS Arc keyboard. It is cased in metal. When you set it down on your desk it stays put. You have to pick it up to move it. It doesn't easily slide around on your desk top. The result is a nice solid feel when typing on the nicely spaced keys. The keys on the old MS Arc keyboard were too close together and I frequently hit the wrong key. I am at best a poor typist. In fact I type with one hand as a result of paralysis. I am clearly making fewer mistakes with this new Logitech keyboard. The indentation on the keys seems to add to my improved accuracy.

    I haven't had the keyboard long enough to comment on battery life but I am not really worried about that. It's easy enough to plug into a USB port for charging. I don't plan on moving the keyboard around much. It will stay on my desk for use with my Windows 10 desktop PC.

    It was easy to activate this keyboard. I already have the Logitech Unifying Receiver Software on my computer since I have a Logitech wireless mouse. I did have to use the Unifying USB Receiver that came with the MX Keyboard. The Logitech Unifying Receiver that came with my mouse did not pick up the new MX Keyboard. Logitech suggests that one receiver will operate multiple devices. Maybe a software update to the old Unifying Receiver would solve this. I don't know for sure. Everything is working fine with two receivers. Both receivers register on the Logitech Unifying Software with different software version numbers. I checked for software updates via the Unifying Receiver software but none were available. Most importantly, I am not experiencing any dropouts between the new MX Keyboard and the Unifying Receiver that came with the keyboard. My old MS Arc Keyboard and receiver were plagued with dropouts and freeze ups. I was constantly doing battery pulls to get the MS keyboard working again. Not a problem with the new Logitech MX Keys Keyboard.

    The MX Keys keyboard is bigger than my old MS Arc keyboard but Logitech has still managed to pack an elegant full sized feeling keyboard into a relatively small package. I will add a picture as an illustration.

    I suppose $100.00 is a lot to pay for a keyboard. However, my initial impressions are that money was well spent. It looks and feels like a heavy duty quality product. I am happy with this purchase.

    Expensive but worth it

    The keyboard is great except it lays flat on the desktop. Not comfortable for me. Added angled velcro wall brackets on the back (see images) and clear door bumpers to prevent sliding. Working well after changes. Like it much better that original that came with the unit as this has integrated number keypad. Has a different feel that others(Logitech and Microsoft) but after a bit of use, it gets better.

    Excellent Apple Keyboard

    tl;dr - A long-lasting, cordless, and excellent keyboard well worth the price, especially if you have Apple products.

    I work from home, and I am also a graduate student, so I spend most of my time at my desk. As I expanded my workspace to include a second monitor to pair with my Macbook Pro, the Magic Keyboard has been an excellent addition to my workspace. First, it is effortless to pair with your Apple device through Bluetooth, where all you need to do is turn it on and find it through your System Preferences. It also keeps my workspace cord-free which is a huge benefit if you tend to have a smaller desk or many books, papers, notebooks, etc. The keyboard is slightly raised from the back, and there are four rubber grips on the bottom, which keep it in place, and it has a very natural fit in your hands. The typing is very smooth and has a satisfying feel to it, so much so that I prefer to use it over the built-in keyboard from my Macbook Pro. Having the numeric pad is also a benefit if you are frequently inputting numbers or are looking for a more classic look. Also, the battery life is impressive. From a full charge, I have been using the keyboard for 3 weeks, 4-7 hours a day, and it has only gone down to about 74% (if you regularly turn it off in the evenings or when not in use).

    Unfortunately, it is not a backlit keyboard, so you'll want to keep that in mind. I did not have much trouble using it in lower-light situations as the white labels were pretty clear. Also, having the numeric pad built-in makes the keyboard a bit larger and bulkier, so it might not be ideal if you plan to travel with it. It is also more expensive than the white keyboard, but the space gray/black looks very professional and sleek and adds to the aesthetic that I find well worth the extra price.

    Overall, this is a great product that will only enhance your productivity and enjoyment of the seamless pairing with Apple products.

    Excellent Purchase

    Puchased the Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad for my iPad Pro. Since I was working from home because of the pandemic and working on a laptop the whole day, I decided to try it using the Lenovo Thinkpad and it worked wonders. One issue that I encountered with the Lenovo was the numeric keypad. At first it didn’t work. I found out that I just had to click on the “clear” button on the numeric keypad side which acts like a numlock key.

    I was also concerned with the ergonomics. I decided to purchase a riser and a wrist rest- paired together it made typing on the keyboard a very great experience.

    I am extremely satisfied with the purchase since I can use it for both my iPad Pro and my work PC laptop.

    Magic Keyboard with Touch ID and Numeric Keypad

    I had recently purchased a 24" iMac without Touch ID. However, after some research I decided to get this keyboard. Returning the 24" without was no an option since I already had it setup and did not want to go through ordering and waiting again for its arrival. Overall, I really like to Touch ID feature you my index fingerprint. It is quick, and I do not have to type my password to access. Call me lazy, LOL! Also, no more batteries to change. Just connect it to lightening to recharge, and you can still use it while it is being charged.

    Great Wireless Keyboard for Mac and iPad Pro

    Outside of the Apple branded keyboards, aftermarket replacements, and a few Windows geared ones, this is my first premium keyboard designed for Mac. It comes neatly packaged, and includes a dongle for non-bluetooth enabled PCs/Macs for quick pairing out of the box.

    I opted to pair this with my older Mac Pro (2nd Generation), a Macbook Pro, and an iPad Pro for easier typing. The box includes a quick setup guide when you open it, that explains the pairing options, a link you can visit to walk you through set up (which makes it easier), and a quick illustration about Easy Switch for multiple devices.

    My setup didn't require the dongle, as all my devices include Bluetooth 4 and 5, making pairing fairly simple. Just hold down on the function key you'd like to pair (F13-F15 keys), and wait for them to blink quickly. Then use the appropriate bluetooth menus in settings to pair. With Mac, it will ask you to type in some numbers, just to confirm it's the right keyboard, and it's ready to use!

    The feel of the keyboard is similar to the newer Apple branded keyboards you can buy, it has a nice weight to it, with a raised back. If you're in need of a wrist pad, I'd recommend getting one, as this sits fairly flush to any flat surface. They keys aren't loud, but give a nice solid feel with each type, and the backlight is bright enough for any room.

    The keyboard does have the Mac specific function keys above the number keys, that allow a lot of the same controls you'd find on a standard Apple Keyboard; such as, backlight buttons for the display and the keyboard, along with the standard media keys. All of this worked out of the box, and didn't require any additional setup on either Mac or iPad.

    Once you've paired each device you'd like to use with the keyboard, simply tap and hold the appropriate function key to switch. If you hold it a little longer, it will go back into pairing mode, and in the event it just starts flashing, just simply pair it again or tap and it will leave pairing mode. In my use, a simple 2-3 second hold made switching easy, and it was immediately ready to start typing; with no long wait for a connection.

    The keyboard is charged using the included USB C to USB C cable, which works with the newer iPhone and iPad adapters, or can connect using the USB C port on your Macbook. In my case, I opted to use a USB-C to USB-A cable, as my older Mac Pro (my primary machine) lacks a USB C port. This worked flawlessly to begin charging, and once it was fully charged, just disconnected and stored the cable. It even has a nice Velcro strap to make it easy to store.

    On the top side of the keyboard, you'll find the USB C port for charging, along with a power slider button. The minimalist look of the keyboard makes it appear like it was designed for Mac by Apple, and my family members all thought it came included with my Mac Pro. The battery life is also really great, lasts about 10 days with the backlight on, or up to 5 months on a charge with it off.

    Overall, I'm really impressed with the dark gray look, the premium feel, and the fact that it's designed for Mac is a huge plus. I will say the box shows compatibility with Mac OS 10.13 or later, but worked without issue on my Mac Pro running 10.11.6. Macbook is running the latest Mac OS, and my iPad is running on iOS 14 beta. All of them worked without any additional setup, and none of them had any connectivity issues. This really is a solid "not designed by Apple" Mac keyboard, and another great accessory by Logitech!

    MUST HAVE PERIOD

    THE BREAKDOWN:

    The packaging was very well done and protected. It came with the keyboard, USB-C to USB-C charging cable, the USB dongle/receiver and some instructions.

    The design of the keyboard is sleek in true fashion of Apple with the space grey finish and minimalist design. I love the fact that this keyboard is sleek and minimalist but heavy. It gives you that solid feel like it was made to last a lifetime.

    Connection was fast and easy via Bluetooth or the USB dongle/receiver. You can also switch between 3 apple devices and continue typing with the click of button on the keyboard (“The Easy Switch”). I was skeptical about this feature, but it did indeed work as intended.

    The keys themselves felt amazing, they have little spherical dish shapes on them that seem to capture your fingers to the center of the key. I found this to be very comfortable and precise. You can also customize the Fn keys once you download the logictech software.

    Keyboard illumination was very cool. I personally love backlit keyboards. These are no ordinary lights on a keyboard, they actually sense your hands as they move toward the keyboard and light up. It is pretty neat stuff. They also automatically adjust brightness based on the changing light conditions. If you are not a person that enjoys the backlit keyboard you can simply turn the feature off by using the option button and the F5 key until there is no lights. An additional note is that once the battery gets to 10% you get a notification and they turn off.

    The USB-C charging cable works as intended and it is to be noted that it doesn’t include a charging head. For some that is a turn-off but for me it isn’t because my MacBook Pro only has USB-C ports, so it is easy enough to plug and charge.

    PRO’s:

    -MAC layout

    -Spherical dish shaped keys

    -Sleek and elegent

    -Backlit Smart Illumination

    -Multiple MAC’s at the click of button

    -Customizable Fn buttons

    CON’s:

    - Absolutely none from me

    SUMMARY:

    Overall, I feel that this product worked very well and I would recommend this to a friend if they are in the market for device like this.

    5 star! Get this one not the Apple one!

    Wanted to add a 5 star! I didn't think I could love a keyboard so much..but I think because I'm weak at typing I love it. Something about how smooth the keys & easy to find just makes it so soothing.

    'PerfectStroke keys -Spherically dished keys match the shape of your fingertips, offering a satisfying feedback with every tap.' - YES true!-

    'Smart illumination-Features hand proximity detection and automatic backlighting.' - Mine doesn't do this..I'm connected to a 2015 Macbook pro..not sure if that matters. But I have to hit a key for my light to come on... the backlight goes off immediately which is annoying & I can't seem to find any settings for it.

    I needed to to replace my wired one which is no longer available. I bought the new apple keyboard and hated it! It's completely flat and I didn't like the keys (again I'm a weak typer, so I think I prefer keys to be a little separated.)

    Also I'm always readjusting throughout the day; so you had no where to grab the keyboard and move it.

    The only thing I don't like at 1st about the Logi is that it's very heavy.. only because I like to move around & adjust a lot. But, after a few days.. I don't even notice anymore; and the love of the key board out weighs it.

    PROS - It connects via Bluetooth w your mac so you don't have to use the little dongle.

    It's BACKLIT! To me that was amazing. The grey apple keyboard is $150 & doesn't do that!

    Truly Mastered for Mac

    I am a big fan of logitech. I have used a lot of their products ranging from computer keyboards, mouses, speakers and UE speakers. they are rock solid and just so hard to break!!

    This logitech keyboard “MX keys” is an excellent companion for your iMac, Macbook, Ipad or even your windows computer. I know that this is keyboard is marketed as mainly for macOS but it works on any windows computer which is 8.0 or later.

    Build Quality

    ———————

    Build quality is super just as you expect from logitech product. I have a 3 year old and this withstood some throwing and banging. There are rubberized legs (just like Mac) on the bottom of the keyboard which makes sure the keyboard do not slip when on a desk. There are no legs, which is a good thing because they always break. Because they do not have legs they are already propped up. There is a ON/OFF switch and a type c port which is used for charging.

    SETUP

    ————

    Setup is simple, there is a unifying receiver which can be connected to a USB port or you can also connect it to the bluetooth connection of the computer and now most computers come with bluetooth you will not have the need to use the unifying receiver,

    CHARGING

    ———————

    Once fully charged the keyboard lasts 10 days with backlit on and almost 5 months without backlit. i think it assumes that you use it may be 3 hours a day.

    You can also used it as wired mode, i know some reviewers complained that this is wireless only. This is totally untrue.

    USAGE

    —————

    Once you have paired and charged the wireless keyboard and connected via the receiver or the bluetooth connection, you are good to go.

    Typing - One thing i really like about the keyboard is that it is super quiet and a great working from home companion. The fact that the keyboard clicks are so quiet, you can be on a conference call and still be taking notes without muting your phone.

    I love the feel of the keyboard, lot better than my MacBook Air keyboard. Love the fact that the keys are dish shaped, has a good feel to it.

    the 2 keys i really love are the screenshot keyboard and the logout button. I love this logout feature because my 3 year old always want to get on my computer and i dont want him accidentally typing on my office computer.

    Customizable keys - you can download logitech options and the keys can be customized.

    Backlit - love the fact that the keyboard has backlit and it has adaptive brightness and it lights up when you move your hand over it in a dark room! Brilliant!!

    Switching - never used this feature but you can switch between 3 different computers by just clicking a button.

    Overall, i think this is a great product and well worth the price.

    Why would you get the apple magic keyboard! It does not even have backlight.

    Great Mac Keyboard

    ## Design

    The Logitech MX Keys for Mac keyboard is very comfortable to type on. While they are not the “clicky” keys you would find on a mechanical keyboard, they do provide nice, tactile feedback when typing without feeling “squishy”.

    The keyboard is somewhat heavy and feels very solid, with just a slight incline which unfortunately is not adjustable. The keyboard features the Mac-specific keys such as Control, Option and Command right where you would expect them. The dark Space Gray design compliments Mac hardware very well.

    ## Features

    Wireless: The keyboard is wireless and can connect to your Mac via the small Logitech Unifying Receiver (which still uses USB-A and not USB-C) or via Bluetooth. If you also have a wireless Logitech mouse, you can pair it with the MX Keys’ receiver by using the Logitech Options software.

    Backlighting: The backlighting on the keyboard does an excellent job of only lighting up as your hand approaches the keyboard, so you can still see the keys in low light situations before you press the key. The lights automatically turn off when your hands are away after a sure period to preserve battery life.

    Multiple machine support: There are 3 dedicated buttons for switching between devices. For example, you can hit the “Easy-Switch 1” button to use your Mac, then tap the “Easy-Switch 2” button to switch to your Bluetooth-paired iPad, for example.

    Shortcut keys: There are some shortcut keys for the calculator, screenshot, and options menu, as well as shortcut key to lock your Mac. These keys are located on the top-right of the keyboard above the number pad.

    USB-C Recharging: Oddly, while the Unifying Receiver needs a USB-A port, the included charging cable requires a USB-C port as the charging cable uses USB-C on both ends. So if your computer does not have a USB-C port, you’ll need to recharge the keyboard with a USB-C wall charger or a USB-A to USB-C cable.

    ## Performance

    While the keyboard is very comfortable to use, there is a very slight delay between pressing a key and the action occurring on screen. Therefore, this game would not replace a wired gaming keyboard, but it is fine for word processing, coding, and other non-gaming tasks.

    With the backlight feature enabled, the keyboard can last up to 10 days of use before needing a recharge. With the backlight off, this extends to 5 months between charges.

    ## Summary

    Overall, the Logitech MX Keys for Mac keyboard is a great alternative to Apple’s Magic Keyboard. The ability to easily switch between devices and the addition of the backlighting makes the MX Keys are very versatile and comfortable keyboard to use.

    Very impressive feel for a membrane keyboard

    The included Magic Keyboard that came with the 2020 iMac left a LOT to be desired. While the mechanical Logitech G512 keyboard worked well with the computer, the inability to tame the cable mess on the desk without drilling holes to route the length underneath the surface was an endeavor I didn't want to take on. Positive reviews in the press for the MX Keys keyboard had me seriously consider going the wireless route even at the expense of the tactile feedback I've grown to love. Needless to say, the MX Keys is the solution that Apple should have designed. The unit has considerable weight to it and the height of the keys feels much more inviting for extended typing sessions. The backlighting was the primary must-have feature for my use case and the brightness is more than sufficient. I can't comment extensively on battery life cycles and recharge rates. However, the availability of a well-placed USB-C port makes the recharge effort trivial in nature. Especially when used with a Caldigit dock that is inches away. The workspace is now cable-free and the feel is excellent. The Logitech Options software won't work without using the included Unifying Receiver. The customization it brings to the table is worth the loss of a USB port. The ability to pair the MX Keys with up to 3 different devices aids in justifying the $100 point of entry. Incredibly well designed keyboard all around and a mandatory investment for Mac owners!

    A keyboard to improve workflow and comfort for Mac

    Verdict: The Logitech MX Keys is amazingly useful. I never thought a keyboard could do so much. It’s my favorite keyboard, period. It has improved my workflow between devices, typing comfort, and productivity on my iPad.

    First impressions. It was packaged nicely with some white wrapping paper and looked great upon opening. It is heavier than it looks. It looks nice and sleek. It has an on/off switch on the backside, and a USB-C connector for charging. The keyboard comes with a USB adapter and a USB-C charging cable.

    Design. The keyboard is laid-out well, with the hot keys and device switch keys easily accessible. The full-size keyboard is a nice change compared to my original iMac keyboard, and actually allows much more comfortable typing due to the extra space on the keyboard. I think I would have preferred the on/off switch on the top of the keyboard for easier access, but I will probably get used to the switch in the back sooner or later.

    Typing. The keyboard types smoothly and it is comfortable. It also has concave keys that feel nice. I think typing on it actually feels better than the original keyboard from my iMac. While I prefer clickity keyboards, this one is pretty great. The lighted keys come on when your hands get close to it… that’s a very nice touch that hasn’t gotten old yet. The lighted keys are not a gimmick, they are so helpful for typing in low light.

    Multi-device use. I didn’t know that keyboards could connect to multiple computers at once. That is a wonderful feature that I knew I could put to use right away. First, I needed a keyboard for my iPad, so I connected the Logitech keyboard via Bluetooth and it worked immediately. All the hot keys worked with the iPad and increased my productivity significantly. The keyboard implementation on the iPad is really well done. Then, instead of switching to another keyboard to access my iMac, I connected the Logitech keyboard via Bluetooth. It also worked right away. For some reason, the “launchpad” shortcut button on the keyboard didn’t work, so I reconfigured it on the iMAC settings, which resolved the issue in just a few seconds. Lastly, I connected the Logitech keyboard to my Macbook Pro also via Bluetooth, and again it just worked! Now I can switch seamlessly between an iPad, an iMac, and a Macbook, typing on all three devices with a single keyboard, toggling between the devices at the press of a button. AMAZING!! What an improvement to my workflow. For experimentation, I also tried to connect to an older windows computer. I was not able to connect the Logitech keyboard via Bluetooth (this could be the fault of my older windows laptop), but the keyboard worked fine with the Windows computer when I used the USB adapter. When connected to the Windows laptop, the keyboard worked well, and I could still switch to my iPad and iMac by pressing the device switch keys.

    Things I love.

    - The ability to switch between three devices is incredible. It is the most useful new keyboard feature I have used in decades

    - The lighted keys come on when your hands get close… very cool!

    - The lighted keys are very useful for typing in low light

    - The hot keys work really well with the iPad and Mac computers. The implementation on the iPad is wonderful! I am surprised mostly because I didn’t think the keyboard would be useful on the iPad beyond simply typing. With this keyboard, my iPad has become a power tool

    - Battery life is impressive: 10hrs with lighted keys, and five months with the lighted keys off

    - Nice typing! Easy, fast, smooth, and accurate

    - It’s wireless

    - It also worked with a Windows computer! So you could use this Logitech keyboard to control and iOS device, a Mac, and a Windows computer.

    Things I don’t love.

    - I wish this keyboard came with a sleeve, or even a hard case. It would increase the travel potential of this keyboard. Since it works so well with my iPad, I plan to travel with it, but I will have to be careful so I don’t damage it

    - This keyboard should include a slot somewhere under the keyboard to store the USB adapter. This would prevent the easy loss of the USB adapter, and ensure that you have the USB adapter when you need it. For now, I guess I will store in the retail box

    The Logitech MX Keys for Mac is a fantastic keyboard. I love it because it has drastically improved my workflow between devices, while providing an overall better typing experience and increased productivity on my iPad. I think I will have to purchase another one for my wife because I’ve seen her eyeing my new keyboard, and I can see the writing on the wall.

    Wow. Wow. Wow. I purchased this keyboard for work. I now work at home and thought I need to upgrade because I was using a really old junky keyboard. I am so excited to have this keyboard. It feels great to my hands. It’s easy to program the color combinations. I use the macros all the time.

    Such an exciting keyboard

    I always heard the sounds of this keyboard whenever I watched my favorite streamer and thought it sounded so satisfying (I recommend looking up some videos of the sound to see if it’s what you’re looking for) and always wanted to get it. One day he mentioned this was the keyboard he used so I ended up picking one up just cause I thought I could use a new keyboard and I can definitely say I don’t regret purchasing it at all. Coming from a very loud and clicky razer blackwidow chroma I realized that it’s a lot better to have a silent yet still satisfying mechanical keyboard rather than one that makes a bunch of background noise. I had the razer keyboard for about 3 years and I can definitely say that the click that you get from that keyboard, or any mechanical keyboard that makes clicking noises, can get annoying, especially when talking to people. But in my opinion, the apex pro completely puts the black widow chroma to shame. Although it’s a bit expensive and the price made me think twice at first I didn’t think about it at all as soon as I started using the keyboard. The keys feel so buttery smooth and satisfying to press and everything about the keyboard from the materials used to the sleek design makes me joyful every time I use it. It has some really cool presets for lighting and the LCD screen is a really nice feature to have. If you want a discreet, good quality keyboard that’s always a joy to use then look no further.

    Magic Keyboard with Touch ID and Numeric Keypad

    I had recently purchased a 24" iMac without Touch ID. However, after some research I decided to get this keyboard. Returning the 24" without was no an option since I already had it setup and did not want to go through ordering and waiting again for its arrival. Overall, I really like to Touch ID feature you my index fingerprint. It is quick, and I do not have to type my password to access. Call me lazy, LOL! Also, no more batteries to change. Just connect it to lightening to recharge, and you can still use it while it is being charged.

    Great Wireless Keyboard for Mac and iPad Pro

    Outside of the Apple branded keyboards, aftermarket replacements, and a few Windows geared ones, this is my first premium keyboard designed for Mac. It comes neatly packaged, and includes a dongle for non-bluetooth enabled PCs/Macs for quick pairing out of the box.

    I opted to pair this with my older Mac Pro (2nd Generation), a Macbook Pro, and an iPad Pro for easier typing. The box includes a quick setup guide when you open it, that explains the pairing options, a link you can visit to walk you through set up (which makes it easier), and a quick illustration about Easy Switch for multiple devices.

    My setup didn't require the dongle, as all my devices include Bluetooth 4 and 5, making pairing fairly simple. Just hold down on the function key you'd like to pair (F13-F15 keys), and wait for them to blink quickly. Then use the appropriate bluetooth menus in settings to pair. With Mac, it will ask you to type in some numbers, just to confirm it's the right keyboard, and it's ready to use!

    The feel of the keyboard is similar to the newer Apple branded keyboards you can buy, it has a nice weight to it, with a raised back. If you're in need of a wrist pad, I'd recommend getting one, as this sits fairly flush to any flat surface. They keys aren't loud, but give a nice solid feel with each type, and the backlight is bright enough for any room.

    The keyboard does have the Mac specific function keys above the number keys, that allow a lot of the same controls you'd find on a standard Apple Keyboard; such as, backlight buttons for the display and the keyboard, along with the standard media keys. All of this worked out of the box, and didn't require any additional setup on either Mac or iPad.

    Once you've paired each device you'd like to use with the keyboard, simply tap and hold the appropriate function key to switch. If you hold it a little longer, it will go back into pairing mode, and in the event it just starts flashing, just simply pair it again or tap and it will leave pairing mode. In my use, a simple 2-3 second hold made switching easy, and it was immediately ready to start typing; with no long wait for a connection.

    The keyboard is charged using the included USB C to USB C cable, which works with the newer iPhone and iPad adapters, or can connect using the USB C port on your Macbook. In my case, I opted to use a USB-C to USB-A cable, as my older Mac Pro (my primary machine) lacks a USB C port. This worked flawlessly to begin charging, and once it was fully charged, just disconnected and stored the cable. It even has a nice Velcro strap to make it easy to store.

    On the top side of the keyboard, you'll find the USB C port for charging, along with a power slider button. The minimalist look of the keyboard makes it appear like it was designed for Mac by Apple, and my family members all thought it came included with my Mac Pro. The battery life is also really great, lasts about 10 days with the backlight on, or up to 5 months on a charge with it off.

    Overall, I'm really impressed with the dark gray look, the premium feel, and the fact that it's designed for Mac is a huge plus. I will say the box shows compatibility with Mac OS 10.13 or later, but worked without issue on my Mac Pro running 10.11.6. Macbook is running the latest Mac OS, and my iPad is running on iOS 14 beta. All of them worked without any additional setup, and none of them had any connectivity issues. This really is a solid "not designed by Apple" Mac keyboard, and another great accessory by Logitech!

    MUST HAVE PERIOD

    THE BREAKDOWN:

    The packaging was very well done and protected. It came with the keyboard, USB-C to USB-C charging cable, the USB dongle/receiver and some instructions.

    The design of the keyboard is sleek in true fashion of Apple with the space grey finish and minimalist design. I love the fact that this keyboard is sleek and minimalist but heavy. It gives you that solid feel like it was made to last a lifetime.

    Connection was fast and easy via Bluetooth or the USB dongle/receiver. You can also switch between 3 apple devices and continue typing with the click of button on the keyboard (“The Easy Switch”). I was skeptical about this feature, but it did indeed work as intended.

    The keys themselves felt amazing, they have little spherical dish shapes on them that seem to capture your fingers to the center of the key. I found this to be very comfortable and precise. You can also customize the Fn keys once you download the logictech software.

    Keyboard illumination was very cool. I personally love backlit keyboards. These are no ordinary lights on a keyboard, they actually sense your hands as they move toward the keyboard and light up. It is pretty neat stuff. They also automatically adjust brightness based on the changing light conditions. If you are not a person that enjoys the backlit keyboard you can simply turn the feature off by using the option button and the F5 key until there is no lights. An additional note is that once the battery gets to 10% you get a notification and they turn off.

    The USB-C charging cable works as intended and it is to be noted that it doesn’t include a charging head. For some that is a turn-off but for me it isn’t because my MacBook Pro only has USB-C ports, so it is easy enough to plug and charge.

    PRO’s:

    -MAC layout

    -Spherical dish shaped keys

    -Sleek and elegent

    -Backlit Smart Illumination

    -Multiple MAC’s at the click of button

    -Customizable Fn buttons

    CON’s:

    - Absolutely none from me

    SUMMARY:

    Overall, I feel that this product worked very well and I would recommend this to a friend if they are in the market for device like this.

    5 star! Get this one not the Apple one!

    Wanted to add a 5 star! I didn't think I could love a keyboard so much..but I think because I'm weak at typing I love it. Something about how smooth the keys & easy to find just makes it so soothing.

    'PerfectStroke keys -Spherically dished keys match the shape of your fingertips, offering a satisfying feedback with every tap.' - YES true!-

    'Smart illumination-Features hand proximity detection and automatic backlighting.' - Mine doesn't do this..I'm connected to a 2015 Macbook pro..not sure if that matters. But I have to hit a key for my light to come on... the backlight goes off immediately which is annoying & I can't seem to find any settings for it.

    I needed to to replace my wired one which is no longer available. I bought the new apple keyboard and hated it! It's completely flat and I didn't like the keys (again I'm a weak typer, so I think I prefer keys to be a little separated.)

    Also I'm always readjusting throughout the day; so you had no where to grab the keyboard and move it.

    The only thing I don't like at 1st about the Logi is that it's very heavy.. only because I like to move around & adjust a lot. But, after a few days.. I don't even notice anymore; and the love of the key board out weighs it.

    PROS - It connects via Bluetooth w your mac so you don't have to use the little dongle.

    It's BACKLIT! To me that was amazing. The grey apple keyboard is $150 & doesn't do that!

    Beats the Apple Keyboard by a Mile!

    Truly Mastered for Mac

    I am a big fan of logitech. I have used a lot of their products ranging from computer keyboards, mouses, speakers and UE speakers. they are rock solid and just so hard to break!!

    This logitech keyboard “MX keys” is an excellent companion for your iMac, Macbook, Ipad or even your windows computer. I know that this is keyboard is marketed as mainly for macOS but it works on any windows computer which is 8.0 or later.

    What is in the box

    —————————

    MX Keys Keyboard

    Unifying receiver

    USB-C charging cable (USB-A to USB-C)

    User documentation

    Build Quality

    ———————

    Build quality is super just as you expect from logitech product. I have a 3 year old and this withstood some throwing and banging. There are rubberized legs (just like Mac) on the bottom of the keyboard which makes sure the keyboard do not slip when on a desk. There are no legs, which is a good thing because they always break. Because they do not have legs they are already propped up. There is a ON/OFF switch and a type c port which is used for charging.

    SETUP

    ————

    Setup is simple, there is a unifying receiver which can be connected to a USB port or you can also connect it to the bluetooth connection of the computer and now most computers come with bluetooth you will not have the need to use the unifying receiver,

    CHARGING

    ———————

    Once fully charged the keyboard lasts 10 days with backlit on and almost 5 months without backlit. i think it assumes that you use it may be 3 hours a day.

    You can also used it as wired mode, i know some reviewers complained that this is wireless only. This is totally untrue.

    USAGE

    —————

    Once you have paired and charged the wireless keyboard and connected via the receiver or the bluetooth connection, you are good to go.

    Typing - One thing i really like about the keyboard is that it is super quiet and a great working from home companion. The fact that the keyboard clicks are so quiet, you can be on a conference call and still be taking notes without muting your phone.

    I love the feel of the keyboard, lot better than my MacBook Air keyboard. Love the fact that the keys are dish shaped, has a good feel to it.

    the 2 keys i really love are the screenshot keyboard and the logout button. I love this logout feature because my 3 year old always want to get on my computer and i dont want him accidentally typing on my office computer.

    Customizable keys - you can download logitech options and the keys can be customized.

    Backlit - love the fact that the keyboard has backlit and it has adaptive brightness and it lights up when you move your hand over it in a dark room! Brilliant!!

    Switching - never used this feature but you can switch between 3 different computers by just clicking a button.

    Overall, i think this is a great product and well worth the price.

    Why would you get the apple magic keyboard! It does not even have backlight.

    Great Mac Keyboard

    ## Design

    The Logitech MX Keys for Mac keyboard is very comfortable to type on. While they are not the “clicky” keys you would find on a mechanical keyboard, they do provide nice, tactile feedback when typing without feeling “squishy”.

    The keyboard is somewhat heavy and feels very solid, with just a slight incline which unfortunately is not adjustable. The keyboard features the Mac-specific keys such as Control, Option and Command right where you would expect them. The dark Space Gray design compliments Mac hardware very well.

    ## Features

    Wireless: The keyboard is wireless and can connect to your Mac via the small Logitech Unifying Receiver (which still uses USB-A and not USB-C) or via Bluetooth. If you also have a wireless Logitech mouse, you can pair it with the MX Keys’ receiver by using the Logitech Options software.

    Backlighting: The backlighting on the keyboard does an excellent job of only lighting up as your hand approaches the keyboard, so you can still see the keys in low light situations before you press the key. The lights automatically turn off when your hands are away after a sure period to preserve battery life.

    Multiple machine support: There are 3 dedicated buttons for switching between devices. For example, you can hit the “Easy-Switch 1” button to use your Mac, then tap the “Easy-Switch 2” button to switch to your Bluetooth-paired iPad, for example.

    Shortcut keys: There are some shortcut keys for the calculator, screenshot, and options menu, as well as shortcut key to lock your Mac. These keys are located on the top-right of the keyboard above the number pad.

    USB-C Recharging: Oddly, while the Unifying Receiver needs a USB-A port, the included charging cable requires a USB-C port as the charging cable uses USB-C on both ends. So if your computer does not have a USB-C port, you’ll need to recharge the keyboard with a USB-C wall charger or a USB-A to USB-C cable.

    ## Performance

    While the keyboard is very comfortable to use, there is a very slight delay between pressing a key and the action occurring on screen. Therefore, this game would not replace a wired gaming keyboard, but it is fine for word processing, coding, and other non-gaming tasks.

    With the backlight feature enabled, the keyboard can last up to 10 days of use before needing a recharge. With the backlight off, this extends to 5 months between charges.

    ## Summary

    Overall, the Logitech MX Keys for Mac keyboard is a great alternative to Apple’s Magic Keyboard. The ability to easily switch between devices and the addition of the backlighting makes the MX Keys are very versatile and comfortable keyboard to use.

    Very impressive feel for a membrane keyboard

    The included Magic Keyboard that came with the 2020 iMac left a LOT to be desired. While the mechanical Logitech G512 keyboard worked well with the computer, the inability to tame the cable mess on the desk without drilling holes to route the length underneath the surface was an endeavor I didn't want to take on. Positive reviews in the press for the MX Keys keyboard had me seriously consider going the wireless route even at the expense of the tactile feedback I've grown to love. Needless to say, the MX Keys is the solution that Apple should have designed. The unit has considerable weight to it and the height of the keys feels much more inviting for extended typing sessions. The backlighting was the primary must-have feature for my use case and the brightness is more than sufficient. I can't comment extensively on battery life cycles and recharge rates. However, the availability of a well-placed USB-C port makes the recharge effort trivial in nature. Especially when used with a Caldigit dock that is inches away. The workspace is now cable-free and the feel is excellent. The Logitech Options software won't work without using the included Unifying Receiver. The customization it brings to the table is worth the loss of a USB port. The ability to pair the MX Keys with up to 3 different devices aids in justifying the $100 point of entry. Incredibly well designed keyboard all around and a mandatory investment for Mac owners!

    A keyboard to improve workflow and comfort for Mac

    Verdict: The Logitech MX Keys is amazingly useful. I never thought a keyboard could do so much. It’s my favorite keyboard, period. It has improved my workflow between devices, typing comfort, and productivity on my iPad.

    First impressions. It was packaged nicely with some white wrapping paper and looked great upon opening. It is heavier than it looks. It looks nice and sleek. It has an on/off switch on the backside, and a USB-C connector for charging. The keyboard comes with a USB adapter and a USB-C charging cable.

    Design. The keyboard is laid-out well, with the hot keys and device switch keys easily accessible. The full-size keyboard is a nice change compared to my original iMac keyboard, and actually allows much more comfortable typing due to the extra space on the keyboard. I think I would have preferred the on/off switch on the top of the keyboard for easier access, but I will probably get used to the switch in the back sooner or later.

    Typing. The keyboard types smoothly and it is comfortable. It also has concave keys that feel nice. I think typing on it actually feels better than the original keyboard from my iMac. While I prefer clickity keyboards, this one is pretty great. The lighted keys come on when your hands get close to it… that’s a very nice touch that hasn’t gotten old yet. The lighted keys are not a gimmick, they are so helpful for typing in low light.

    Multi-device use. I didn’t know that keyboards could connect to multiple computers at once. That is a wonderful feature that I knew I could put to use right away. First, I needed a keyboard for my iPad, so I connected the Logitech keyboard via Bluetooth and it worked immediately. All the hot keys worked with the iPad and increased my productivity significantly. The keyboard implementation on the iPad is really well done. Then, instead of switching to another keyboard to access my iMac, I connected the Logitech keyboard via Bluetooth. It also worked right away. For some reason, the “launchpad” shortcut button on the keyboard didn’t work, so I reconfigured it on the iMAC settings, which resolved the issue in just a few seconds. Lastly, I connected the Logitech keyboard to my Macbook Pro also via Bluetooth, and again it just worked! Now I can switch seamlessly between an iPad, an iMac, and a Macbook, typing on all three devices with a single keyboard, toggling between the devices at the press of a button. AMAZING!! What an improvement to my workflow. For experimentation, I also tried to connect to an older windows computer. I was not able to connect the Logitech keyboard via Bluetooth (this could be the fault of my older windows laptop), but the keyboard worked fine with the Windows computer when I used the USB adapter. When connected to the Windows laptop, the keyboard worked well, and I could still switch to my iPad and iMac by pressing the device switch keys.

    Things I love.

    - The ability to switch between three devices is incredible. It is the most useful new keyboard feature I have used in decades

    - The lighted keys come on when your hands get close… very cool!

    - The lighted keys are very useful for typing in low light

    - The hot keys work really well with the iPad and Mac computers. The implementation on the iPad is wonderful! I am surprised mostly because I didn’t think the keyboard would be useful on the iPad beyond simply typing. With this keyboard, my iPad has become a power tool

    - Battery life is impressive: 10hrs with lighted keys, and five months with the lighted keys off

    - Nice typing! Easy, fast, smooth, and accurate

    - It’s wireless

    - It also worked with a Windows computer! So you could use this Logitech keyboard to control and iOS device, a Mac, and a Windows computer.

    Things I don’t love.

    - I wish this keyboard came with a sleeve, or even a hard case. It would increase the travel potential of this keyboard. Since it works so well with my iPad, I plan to travel with it, but I will have to be careful so I don’t damage it

    - This keyboard should include a slot somewhere under the keyboard to store the USB adapter. This would prevent the easy loss of the USB adapter, and ensure that you have the USB adapter when you need it. For now, I guess I will store in the retail box

    The Logitech MX Keys for Mac is a fantastic keyboard. I love it because it has drastically improved my workflow between devices, while providing an overall better typing experience and increased productivity on my iPad. I think I will have to purchase another one for my wife because I’ve seen her eyeing my new keyboard, and I can see the writing on the wall.

    Excellent mechanical keyboard update from SS

    As a mechkeyboard enthusiast, this is my full critical appraisal of the Apex 7 TKL.

    PROS:

    - solid, sturdy, and (perceived to be) durable, aluminum frame with hard plastic back cover

    - <5% frame flex

    - not too heavy, not too light; has a good weight to it with a premium finish and detailing all around

    - keyboard profiles / configs can be loaded onto the keyboard and accessed without the need for the SS Engine software to be running always

    - top right corner OLED and function keys makes it easy to switch profiles / configs

    - volume control knob is the perfect minimalist replacement for keyboard volume shortcuts / dedicated larger volume control buttons

    - minimal branding that doesn't stand out horribly / isn't an eyesore

    - compact layout and design providing for a very stylish looking TKL keyboard

    - QX2 red switches (aka Gateron reds feat. SteelSeries) are incredibly smooth with (imo) <10% total scratchiness, feeling better than Cherry MX Reds I have used with other keyboards -- subjective note: SS QX2 & Gateron Reds might just be my favorite reds overall

    - very appropriate red switch key-noise levels, not very loud -- will update if keys break-in even more

    - smooth top keycaps that offer wonderful fingertip-feels

    - fantastic LED brightness and quality; beautiful colors and no flickering

    - USB cable passthrough & illuminated usb passthrough port

    - clean, non-gamery font that works with many aesthetics

    - quality rubber feet with one adjustable height preference

    - comes with a matte, smooth feel rubber wrist rest that remains well attached to keyboard via magnets

    - 5/5 for gaming, 4/5 for typists (but you'd also have to be a typist that enjoys red switches) --- I wrote this whole review on my Apex 7 TKL and I gotta say, I love typing on it.

    CONS:

    - $130 is a little up there. Maybe $110 would be more reasonable, but this is truly a great keyboard and I have no buyers remorse -- (personal disclaimer: I am frugal, but I find this keyboard worth it)

    - only comes with ABS keycaps, so key shine will eventually set in after a very long period of use

    - illuminated white USB passthrough port creates mild amounts of light that I wish I could get rid of while playing at night -- can't find any way to turn off white LED USB port illuminator??

    - LED backlight bleed from top row of function keys will mildly illuminate the back half of your desk when using high brightness levels

    - (subjective) OLED screen with configs selector very minorly throws off the aesthetics of the TKL keyboard

    - USB cable is durable and thick, but it doesn't have a lot of bend/give to it, so bends tend to hold and it creeps up over the edge of the back of my desk because of its lack of flexibility

    - software is <10% of the time glitchy / has limited lighting controls -- NOTE: this keyboard is less than 1 month old, currently, and SteelSeries is already updating lighting controls. This point should be nulled within a couple weeks

    I tried to be as objective as I can with this review, and from a detached view, I'd say it hits a minimum of 4 to 4.5 stars for the overall population of keyboard shoppers. For my preferences and what I look for in a keyboard, I think it's a solid 4.5 to 5 stars. I have some minor gripes about this keyboard, but then again, any product in this world can technically always "be better" than what it is. The ONLY thing that actually bothers me a bit is the white LED illuminated USB port on the back left because it makes my desk a little less dark when writing or gaming in the dark. However, for what this keyboard is, I think it's a great step up from their M750 TKL and an EXCELLENT TKL keyboard overall.

    Beautiful keyboard

    Such a great keyboard with many features. Overall it could have been the best keyboard on the market but it is not a Apex pro and does not have Omnipoint switches. Besdies that if you dont care for omnipoint(being able to adjust your “click depth”) than this is a great choice. It looks amazing and the steel series GG software is easy to understand and use.

    Outstanding Keyboard

    Upgrading from a previous 10 key Steelseries keyboard and I'm loving the TKL. I'm already used to the Steelseries red switches from a previous keyboard. No complaints here. The media key and volume wheel are simple and intuitive. I honestly don't use the OLED too much but it's there. Just be sure to not set a static image as all Steelseries OLED screens are prone to terrible burn-in. I've experienced this with other products. My only complaints are: A keyboard at this price point should ship with doubleshot PBT keycaps. There are plenty of options out there.

    I personnaly went with a Ducky pudding set which means function keys won't match and the font is quite different. The other complaint is that the wrist rest, at least for me, is useless. I could never get it comfortable. Other than that, a great keyboard!

    I have really enjoyed this keyboard! Bestbuy is always great about helping and having a great selection! This keyboard plays very nicely for my style! Very heavy duty feeling and the RGB on steel series keyboards are amazing. Also the little screen in the top right that I can put my gamer tag on is a fun little customizable piece! Highly recommend. Just make sure you have 2 USB ports available as it takes one for signal and one for power.

    I am a HUGE fan of SteelSeries Keyboards!

    My first experience with a SteelSeries mechanical gaming keyboard was after I purchased an MSI Titan 2QE gaming laptop with a built in SteelSeries Cherry MX gaming keyboard.

    After purchasing a Cyberton CLX gaming desktop, I knew I was going to put the keyboard that came with it, aside and buy a SteelSeries gaming keyboard. The Apex M750 to be exact and I LOVED it!

    I then purchased the SteelSeries Apex 7 Mechanical gaming keyboard with an OLED display and settings control and that turned out to be even better than the Apex M750! Didn't think it could get any better than the Apex M750 but SteelSeries is full of surprises!

    The $148.00 dollar price tag may seem a bit steep but it's well worth the money if the price is within your budget. The key presses are smooth and very responsive and if you're into the click clack sound when pressing the keys, which I am, then this keyboard is for you!

    Lastly, if you're into multi-colored RBG keys and layered colors when pressing the keys then you're in for a treat! The keys light up brightly, no matter the color or pattern chosen for easy key visibility! Give this keyboard a try!

    Excellent for productivity and casual gaming

    Finally! I've been waiting for Logitech to design a keyboard similar in design to the Microsoft Natural keyboard. I've owned a range of Microsoft ergonomic keyboards, which include the 4000, Sculpt, Surface Ergonomic, etc. I've also owned many Logitech keyboards (gaming and ergonomic), but never found them as comfortable as the Microsoft keyboards.

    I've been using this keyboard for well over a month and must say that I am absolutely please with the comfort and responsiveness. The keys are soft, the wrist pad is comfortable, and includes all the functionality that I need in a keyboard. The only minor drawback that I experienced in the beginning was that the right side of the keyboard is spaced about 1/2" closer to the left side of the keyboard, which threw me off for the first few days. This just required some adjustments because my "muscle memory" had to be retrained.

    So what do I like about this keyboard?

    * It's wireless (unlike to 4000 Ergonomic keyboard)

    * It wakes up almost instantly as soon as I press a key (unlike my Surface Ergonomic Bluetooth keyboard which takes several seconds to wake up)

    * It doesn't intermittently stop responding when long pressing keys while gaming (unlike my Sculpt, which will become unresponsive for about 30 seconds at random times)

    * The keys are soft like the Surface and Sculpt

    * It's a split keyboard design like the Microsoft Natural designs for people like me who've grown accustomed to using this style keyboard

    * The wrist pad is soft similar to the Microsoft keyboards, but seems more durable and less likely to stain unlike the Microsoft keyboards

    * Includes a Fn key (unlike the Sculpt), making it easy to use the F1-F12 keys without a toggle switch

    * It supports Bluetooth (or their Unifying USB receiver) for wireless communication

    * It can be paired with up to three devices (PC, Macs, and anything with Bluetooth support)

    Regardless of its strengths, this also goes without saying that the keyboard also has some minor shortcomings.

    * The gap between the padding and the keyboard is a big enough channel that will allow dirt to get trapped

    * The padding cannot be detached (nor appears to be replaceable)

    * No Fn key on the left side of the spacebar (there's only one Fn key, which is to the right of the spacebar)

    * May take at least a couple days to adjust due to muscle memory being used to a previous keyboard

    * A little more pricey than comparable keyboards

    I can't comment on the ability to remap/customize the keys since I'm completely fine with the default setup, but I do know that it's possible.

    Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with this keyboard since I wasn't expecting it to feel like my previous Microsoft keyboards. I assure you that if you like the design and comfort of Microsoft keyboards, you will appreciate this keyboard even more. It's excellent for productivity, as well as for casual gamers. If you're looking for a Microsoft Natural keyboard replacement, look no further. I highly recommend this if you can deal with the minor shortcomings mentioned above.

    Advanced ergonomics

    This is Logitech's only split ergonomic keyboard. It's also the first ergonomic keyboard that can simultaneously be paired to multiple devices, is wireless and supports multiple operating systems.

    This keyboard is a great complement to the MX Vertical mouse, which I'm also using.

    The layout uses 'island' keys that feel similar to a laptop keyboard: The keys are slightly separated, with a limited travel compared to mechanical keys.

    With the divided keyboard, each side is tilted left/right for a more natural resting positions of the hands.

    The media and desktop shortcut keys are fully functional on both macOS and Windows 10.

    The integrated wrist rest is nicely padded while maintaining the keyboard's contour.

    As a quirk, a phone can slide nicely under the curve on the keyboard.

    Battery: It uses 2xAAA alkaline batteries. Logitech claims two years battery life. This might be true. I'm also using another Logitech (with mechanical keys) and it's been over a year with the same batteries.

    On the plus side of using AAA batteries, there is no planned obsolescence here: Change the standard batteries and works like new again.

    Connectivity: It can either use the Logitech unifying USB receiver, or it supports Bluetooth 5.0 LE. Note that if using an older computer that does not support Low Energy mode, the keyboard might not work with Bluetooth, but works with the USB receiver.

    The Unifying receiver can connect to up to 6 devices (On the same receiver).

    I cannot reinforce enough how reliable the connection is with the unifying receiver, and one receiver works with both keyboard and mouse.

    The keyboard has three buttons to switch devices it connects to, or if using a compatible Logitech mouse, enable Flow to seamlessly switch between devices. This keyboard supports flow when used with the Logitech MX Vertical mouse, and it works between macOS and Windows 10.

    It took me about a week to adapt to this keyboard, coming from a mechanical keyboard.

    There are no lift tabs on the back of the keyboard, instead they are on the front so it can lean backwards when using it on a standing desk.

    As potential cons to consider, as per one's preferences:

    - No option to recharge batteries.

    - No wired USB: Wireless only.

    - No backlight keys.

    - No mechanical keys: From personal experience, it took me longer to get used to the shorter travel than to the split keyboard.

    - Keycaps are not removable.

    I don't want to take my fingers off it!

    I’ve been using Logitech products for several years. I have an MX Mouse that I absolutely adore. I’d been thinking about using a split keyboard as I often spend hours at my desk typing various things (mainly e-mail and reports). While it certainly takes some getting used to, after using the keyboard for a few days, I really don’t want to move my hands. The wrist rest is incredibly comfortable and gives my hands a lot of support. They feel much more natural than with a standard keyboard. I didn’t realize what I was missing until I went down this route!

    They keyboard is a good size and weight. The keys create the right level of resistance and travel. They feel very comfortable to use. I don’t find myself accidentally typing anything I don’t want, nor do I find myself with tired fingers at the end of the day. The only difficulty I really have is finding the “Y” and “B” keys with my fingers. Apparently, I taught myself incorrectly when I learned to touch type many years ago. This keyboard is forcing me to learn the standard approach. I can’t blame Logitech for my own poor education. Curiously, the hardest phrase for me to write now is ‘Natural typing position’. If you can get that right on this keyboard, thank your instructor!

    The K860 connects via Bluetooth or with the included dongle. You can also connect with up to 3 devices such as a laptop, phone, or TV. The downloadable software allows you to customize the function keys on your Windows or Mac machine. By default, the custom functions are in play (like many laptops these days). You can change that easily with the fn-lock button, a nice addition instead of having to go through the software. The keyboard is missing a ‘Pause’ key, but it adds keys for calculator and ‘right click’ menu context. Personally, I use those way more than I use pause in my office work. It will sit comfortably on your lap or on your desk, depending on what your natural typing position is.

    The only thing I would take points off for was Logitech’s decision not to include backlit keys, rechargeable batteries, or Flow on this model. Mechanically and from a design perspective, this keyboard shares a pedigree with Logitech’s ‘MX’ series of premium devices. It also shares a price point, coming in slightly above the MX Keys keyboard that includes the above. Moving to this from the K800 backlit keyboard would have been a much easier choice if I hadn’t had to give up that functionality. Ultimately, that takes a star off the review for what’s otherwise an excellent unit.

    Great Keyboard

    I'm going to start by first admitting that I have had the opportunity over the years to use multiple Logitech products and I have never been dissapointed. This keyboard is no different.

    This is a quality keyboard. The packaging is attractive and effective. In the box you have the keyboard, the usual quick start guide, USB adapter and batteries. A note on the batteries: they are listed to last 2 years and while I can't vouch, I have no reason to doubt the claim based on my previous experience with Logitech equipment.

    The keyboard comes with a USB option and a Bluetooth option. I connected to my AIO desktop via Bluetooth and it took just seconds. It can be connected to up to 3 devices via BT and easily switched by selecting one of three key options to toggle back and forth between the devices. If you don't have a BT option, you can use the USB option. In the battery compartment, there is a convenient slot to hold the USB adapter.

    As for the keyboard itself, the wrist pad is an great inclusion, but note, it is relatively large and does take up more real estate on your desk than most others. If you have the room, this is well worth the trade. The keys are sooth and quiet. It also has the option to program the F keys. I tested it (even though I probably won't use it) and it was easy to do and I could see how it could be a nice feature for some users.

    As several other reviewers have mentioned, if you are not used to using the split keyboard then there is a learning curve. This is NOT a knock or negative on the keyboard, just a clinical fact. That said, after a little practice it's a really nice KB all around.

    The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it did not include a back-light option. I guess they purposefully excluded that for the sake of battery life, but as a night-owl, I do some of my best work well after dark and would have appreciated that at least as an option. Oh well, not a deal breaker.

    In all, a great keyboard from a consistently good company. I would eagerly recommend to a friend.

    Well done Logitech.

    Type faster and more accurately w/ this keyboard

    Let me preface this by saying that I very rarely give out 5 star reviews. Most people would rate this 5 stars, but then most people either rate a 1 or a 5. I would give this 4.5 stars if it were on option.

    Pros:

    *ergonomic

    *capable of switching between multiple devices (I have not tried this)

    *wireless

    *I find my typing to be more accurate with this keyboard

    *I typically type between 80 and 90wpm. I did a quick typing speed test with this keyboard and it came back at 100wpm with 100% accuracy.

    *Matches the MX vertical mouse

    Cons:

    *For some reason the windows menu button is not in the normal spot. Normally it is located between the right alt and control keys. For some reason Logitech decided to put this on the top right. I might as well reach for my mouse and use the right click since I have to move my hand up there anyways.

    *no pause break key

    *the palm rest is not removable

    *keys are a bit soft to the touch and I wish they had a bit more of a tactile feel like a mechanical keyboard.

    *kinda pricy and they don't sell it as a set with a mouse

    Over all I really like this keyboard and I am torn between 4 and 5 stars. I would give it 5 if Logitech could take care of a few of the items on my cons list. That being said this was my last component of my dream work from home set up. I don't know that a keyboard exists I would be 100% happy with (ideally I want a mechanical ergonomically shaped wireless keyboard with all the keys in the traditional spots)

    There is a lock key which can be handy for some. I don't think I'll ever use as I am pretty used to just hitting windows + l to lock my screen.

    Best Keyboard in a Long Time!!!!

    One of the best keyboards I've used in years! The ERGO shape makes spending long hours working on the computer a pleasant experience. I like the low profile keys and the tactile feel of the key presses. I've been using Logitech keyboard for over a decade and by far this is the best one yet! My only complaint, as shared with others, is the new "Options" software... Bring back the many options found in the old SetPoint!!! Highly recommend the ERGO K860!

    It has a curve to it!

    My wrists would typically hurt after a long work day at my computer, so I decided to give this keyboard a shot as it does look more ergonomic. Large wrist support cushion at the bottom is designed to support your writs at a more natural angle, not parallel to the desk.

    Does this help with the pain? Yes! After just a couple days behind this keyboard I've noticed an improvement! It was sure difficult to get used to a curved shape, I had to re-adjust my typing habits a little, for example I was used to hitting B with my right thumb vs the left one. There is definitely a learning curve to get used to it. I was missing the keys at the beginning and typing real slow, but just after a couple hours I've got it.

    Other than a curved shape - there is not a lot of features. Keyboard is battery powered (2xAAA batteries at the bottom) so it does not have a backlight. No "wheel" like on a Logitech Craft. Keyboard supports re-mapping of the function keys using Logitech Options software.

    Who would I recommend this keyboard to? Someone who writes a lot - definitely! Someone who needs more functionality and uses mouse most of the time (graphic design) - No. Look at Logitech Craft instead.

    What would I improve? Support of up to 3 different computers via Bluetooth or Unifying receiver is nice, but no backlight and AAA battery power is definitely a step back.

    Comfort & Convenient

    At work I spend a lot of time working at a computer and my hands get stiff / numb occasionally. After I switched to this keyboard, I noticed right away that my wrist were straighter and the built-in rest is really comfortable. I guess I really took for granted something I use everyday.

    Pros

    - Includes a wireless USB receiver and Bluetooth that can be paired to multiple computers. There are buttons on the keyboard that allow you to swap between paired devices.

    - Wrist rest and angle adjustment really reduce the pressure / bending you feel.

    - Useful short cut keys for launching apps and commands.

    - Keys have labels for Mac and PC.

    - Very quiet.

    Things To Consider

    - The split key layout takes some getting used to. I have an old injury that limits the use of my pinkie finger on my right hand and so I was used to typing a little offset to compensate. The first day was hard, but I have gotten faster over the past week and the double space bar really works.

    - Key travel is shallow and the weight is on the lighter side. Not a big issue for me and this does make it very quiet.

    This is a quality keyboard that adds comfort and convenience. The split keys do have a learning curve, but I wouldn’t go back to a regular keyboard.

    Great choice

    If you are looking for something slim this is not it. Everything else is a plus. I like how the keyboard lights up. It has an insert key, something apple keyboards no longer have. I have a Mac and needed a universal keyboard. This fits the bill. The wrist rest is comfy and the back adjusts up.

    Great keyboard for low light users.

    Overall, this is a great keyboard. I'm a heavy user and the rechargeable batteries did not require a recharge until six weeks later after the first charge. That was much better than I expected. The lay out and feel wasn't much different than my other 10 year old Logitech keyboard that bit the dust. The only improvement I recommend is to extend the auto turnoff illumination time longer. It turns off after 3 seconds. That is annoying when working in low light. There is the option to turn on keys all the time but I prefer the auto turnoff to extend battery life.

    One thing to note is that my Logitech MX 700 mouse now has some minor compatibility issues that may be from wireless signal interference between the mouse and keyboard. So if you have an old Logitech wireless mouse you may need to upgrade the mouse as well.

    Get this keyboard

    This is probably the best keyboard I have ever used. Some keyboards just don't feel right or aren't easy to type with. This keyboard has neither issue. The only issue i have is that I wish I would have bought one sooner. Not sure if the illumination does anything for me since I only use this in an office setting where the lights are always on, but it's a neat feature to have. The charge lasts quite awhile about 5-7 days without turning off and seems to recharge quickly. This is a great product by logitech...go get you one!

    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.

    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.

    Fantastic if it matches your needs

    I’m a big fan of Logitech’s MX series. I have the full-sized MX Keyboard and both the MX Anywhere and the MX Pro mouse. They are my go-to devices for both desktop and laptop use. This “mini” version is just what it says, a small version of the full MX keyboard with a few significant changes.

    What hasn’t changed is the excellent feel and quality build. It has the same key action which is my favorite. It also has the MX series ability to pair with up to three devices and switch between them at the touch of the dedicated 1/2/3 keys. It also can use the Logitech Flow system to drag and drop things between those devices. As with the full-sized version, the keyboard lights come on only when your hands are in proximity thus conserving battery. Depending on how bright you set things, the internal rechargeable battery life is anywhere from 10 days to several months. It charges with the included USB C to A cable from any source.

    The alpha keys are full size, so it gets its diminutive size by omitting the Numpad and a few other keys. There are also differences in its pairing ability. The previous MX devices could pair with the ubiquitous Logitech Unifying Receiver dongle or directly via Bluetooth. This new device supports Bluetooth but does not support the Unifying dongle. It can pair the newer Logitech Bolt dongle. However, they did not include one, and they are an additional $20. Be aware that none of your existing Logitech products can use the Bolt since it’s not backward compatible. Considering I have other MX products, that’s a notable issue. There are also some new dedicated F-key functions … dictation, emojis, and mic mute. To get these you give up a few … task view, action center, show/hide desktop, previous track, next track, calculator, and app menu. It does have the basic arrow keys, but missing along with the num-key section are some important navigation keys … insert, home, end, page up, and page down.

    The mini is marketed as a “creator’s keyboard”, so it’s up to you to decide if the keys added compensate for those removed. The touch and feel are superb. The build is top quality. The battery life is great. The size is definitely small. If the key selection meets your needs and the smaller size is a plus, you’ll love it, and I recommend it with those qualifications.

    Awesome keyboard

    Exactly what I was looking for. I need a keyboard that is compatible with my personal MacBook Pro and my work HP Probook. This keyboard allows me to seamlessly switch between the two without having to mess with the bluetooth settings each time. It's just the push of a key to designate which machine I want to type on (up to three can be pre-set, so I also added my iPad). Keys have a good amount of bounce. I got the mini and I love that it takes up a minimal amount of space on my desk, but for those who want the full size keyboard, those are available, too. Very happy with my purchase. The only complaint I have is the instructions included in the box were pretty lacking/non-existent. I'm wondering if there are features I don't know about.

    Performance Comfortable Mini MX keyboard for creat

    Logi MX keys Mini is minimalist 70% form factor wireless illuminated keyboard intended to take anywhere on the go or for minimizing desk space and targeted for everyday productivity. It takes less space on your desk and looks awesome when paired with MX master3 and MX speakers(see pic).

    Unboxing and What’s included: In the box, MX Mini keyboard, USB C to A cable for charging in box with safety, compliance, and warranty info papers.

    Keyboard’s minimalistic design is excellent with 75% ergonomic form factor and measures 11.65 x 5.19x 0.82 inches and weighs around 506 grams.

    Setup is simple. It does not come with the new compatible Logi Bolt receiver that was released recently and this keyboard will not pair or work with unifying receiver. So, if you are planning to purchase this to use with your unifying receiver you are out of luck and may need to purchase the new Bolt USB receiver. Connection via Bluetooth is simple and uses Bluetooth low energy and is compatible with windows 10 or Mac or iOS or iPad OS or Android OS. Just go the settings and search for available nearby devices after turning the switch on and select the MX keys mini to get connected. You can connect max of 3 devices and switch between them with the tap of the easy switch keys located on the top row. Very seamless and fluid switching between devices once configured and connected.

    To connect different devices after connecting one device, press and hold the another easy-switch buttons on top for few seconds until it blinks to complete the setup process for other device. Once configured, just with the tap of the easy switch keys you can navigate to different devices. For my setup, I have my work laptop and personal gaming laptop connected to the Samsung 49-inch G9 monitor on a sit stand desk and this new mini keyboard paired with MX Master 3 works great for productivity.

    You can customize this keyboard with various functions by downloading the Logitech options software and setup functions keys and setup voice to text dictation. By default, the first row of 3 keys is assigned with easy switch keys to switch to various devices (1 to 3), decreasing /increasing brightness for backlighting for keyboard, dictation and emoji keys, screen capture keys, mic off keys and multimedia keys (play/pause, volume mute, volume decrease, volume increase). All these keys can be easy switched between Fn keys by pressing Fn+Esc and all this without holding the Fn button.

    Keystroke is perfect with the keys shaped for fingertips and is very comfortable ergonomically. Batteries will last up to 10 days on a full charge, and it again depends on the usage and the backlight brightness. If you need more than few months of battery life, suggest turning off the backlighting in the logi options software or reduce the brightness to save battery.

    This mini MX keys will definitely save desk space and when paired with MX Master 3 it can switch and operate multiple computers on the same network seamless using the Logitech flow software.

    Overall, if you are looking for a productive, compact (space saving), performance, comfortable, portable (easy to take anywhere you go), wireless, multi device connection keyboard without losing the full keyboard functions and have no need for dedicated number pad then this is the keyboard for you and won’t regret the purchase.

    Best Keyboard

    This is probably the best keyboard I have ever used for gaming. The best part about it is how quiet the keyboard is. My fiancé would always complain about how loud my previous keyboard was and I’m not a fan of the clicky Keys. This is night and day. The keys are a bit harder to click but worth it when typing normal things. I’d recommend this to anyone who wants a great keyboard with noise suppression. I use it heavy for Warzone and other FPS games.

    High Quality Mechanical Keyboard

    Overall, I am in love with this keyboard. The keyboard comes in high quality packaging and the build quality is amazing. I'd ssy it was definitely worth the price especially if you buy the one with red linear optical switches. They sound amazing and the keycaps come off perfectly so you dont have to worry about damaging them. The only thing I'd say that bothers me is just the stabilizers in the space bar becuase they sound a little weird. Other than that great keyboard and would recommend! You can also swap the keycaps to anythijg compatible with the switch. I personally used the HyperX black pudding keycaps and they look awesome. Take a look at the picture I posted.

    Great product

    This is a superb little keyboard. Got it in the linear optical red switch.

    Pros

    -60% is cool

    -quality keycaps

    -comfortable, linear, fast switches w/internal dampeners

    -detachable usb c (nice)

    -on board storage available after installing synapse once making profiles and lighting. Then you can uninstall

    Cons

    -razer proprietary stabilizer keys (like space bar) sound awful

    And thats the only con for me. Easily fixable with an oring on center steam and outer stems of the stabilizer keys. Sound is much more quiet and consistent after.

    Great TKL Keyboard

    Prior to purchasing this keyboard, I had a Corsair full sized keyboard. I was looking for something more compact. I contemplated getting the razer mini but I’m glad i went for this one. The mini was far to small for my liking. The tournament edition felt comfortable for my hands and provided more real estate for my mouse. Would recommend for those looking for a ten keyless keyboard.

    So far It’s a great keyboard! Has been amazing. Love the sound the keys make and you can better feel keystrokes . I still haven’t figured out everything the software has to offer, but I am working on connecting it to my Phillips hue Lightstrip Plus (and eventually getting more Hue lights, possibly another Hue Play setup like I have connected to my living room TV), and making my entertainment area connect to the rest of my smarthome. All of the possible customization and integration features is what made me choose the Razor over other brands.

    Great Looks, functionality - and a Hefty Price

    Let me get this out of the way -- I love this keyboard! I wanted something with a clean look that requires little real estate, and the G915 TKL (TenKeyLess) fits perfectly. With swappable Blueooth or Wireless dongle support, it's easily moved from PC to PC whether taking to to work or a LAN party. The low height and small footprint allows a very comfortable position with plenty of room wild mouse movements when gaming.

    The build quality is excellent. While it's ultra thin, it's also surprisingly heavy, and feels very solid with its aircraft-grade aluminum alloy top plate on a steel-reinforced plastic base. There's a storage location for the wifi dongle, and has two flip out feet for elevating the keyboard to two different angles. It is one of the most expensive TKL keyboards - even keyboards in general, but it certainly looks and feels the part.

    The keys themselves have a premium feel even though they are made from plastic. They attach to the frame via Logitech’s low-profile GL mechanical switches, which are available with either tactile, clicky or linear switches. I chose the tactile switches. The switches have a subltle "bump" before actuating which gave it a solid feel. The switches are silent, but the keys make a bit of noise when pressed. Nothing distracting, however. Overall typing experience is great, though it might take some time getting acclimated as the keys are close together and there keyboard ends at the edge of the space bar.

    The low-profile switches were fast and responsive during gaming, and the Lightspeed wireless connection was fast and reliable. I never notices any input lag, and in 6 hours or so of gaming I never experienced a missed key input or dropout.

    If you're concerned about battery life a the G915 TKL is a wireless keyboard, you needn't worry. Logitech claims the battery life is good for 40 hours, and after about 12 to 13 hours of mixed usage with the RGB lights on full, the G-Hub software shows over 75% life left. I never used the on/off switch located on the back of the keyboard. You can also set the RGB lights to start breathing red when the battery is low.

    The G-Hub software is bit complex, but it offers extensive functionality over the keybard. You can program each keys lighting value as well the the logo and media keys. There are also preset RGB effects and even a setting for effects dictated by your screen or even your audio.

    You can also program macros, but they keys themselves share functions with the "normal" keys, and uses an "FN" option (the full size G915 has separate "G keys").

    This is a great keyboard -- one I would consider the ultimate if you're looking for a small form factor wireless keyboard. I would go as far as saying this is the best one out there and the one you should get -- if you can afford it. Keyboards in general seem to have gotten ridiculously costy, and price is the only reason I did not give the Logitch G915 TKL a 5 star rating. I still love this keyboard though.

    G915 TKL Logitech Gaming KBD

    Impeccable Design & Stunningly Beautiful!!

    I’ve got a couple of gaming KBD’s and really love them but Logitech has created a masterpiece with the G915! The designers that designed this KBD make it obvious that this was a labor of love for them! It's so apparent in every detail.

    I got the G915 box and was immediately impressed with the packaging. The sleek coated heavy cardboard with beautiful graphics and the precision in the way the KBD is presented when you lift the lid, previews the quality of the build and the performance to come in this KBD. It’s a note to me the consumer that they are bringing their “A” game. No short cuts here. Even the cable it comes with is quality. Again, no short cuts.

    The brushed metal body is gorgeous and so sturdy and solid and again, just strikingly beautiful. It’s a compliment to my desk and computer and with such a sleek, low profile footprint for a gaming KBD it’s so refreshing. I don’t know how they pulled that off! The risers on the back of the bottom of the KBD are also a nice touch. They are metal instead of cheap plastic and adjust to three different heights. 1. Flat lowest profile. 2. a medium rise and 3. a full rise. I like the legs all the way up to slightly lean the KBD forward. Ok. so this KBD looks great but what about the performance.

    A wireless gaming keyboard at the same performance level as a wired gaming KBD? Can it be?? It was hard for me to believe that prior to trying it out for my self. Now, I am sure that there is some tech ultra geek out there that will argue all day that there is a difference but I was looking for a lag and could not find it. From high end gaming to using the multi media buttons for music playback (which are awesome) and I am telling you, it is as fast and consistent and reliable as any wired gaming keyboard I have EVER used. Logitech calls it “Lightspeed” and they are spot on.

    You can connect this G915 KBD either through a traditional usb transmitter aka “lightspeed” plug provided, bluetooth or use the cable provided if you should ever run out of battery charge and need to keep playing while charging. You can also switch modes from the wireless usb transmitter to bluetooth by pressing a button on the actual KBD. Using bluetooth frees up a usb port which is kind of nice. Out of curiosity, I used bluetooth to connect to my tablet and phone to try to play games and could not play games but was able to type ect. I was hoping to use this KBD on COD mobile to annihilate the competition on the mobile platform. Guess COD app would not allow for that! Oh well.

    The feel of the keys is impeccable. I never really liked the loud clicky sound of a gaming KBD but I really liked the feel and the options that gaming KBD gave me as a gamer. It’s the only way to play really. I have the Tactile model of the G915 TKL which gives me the feel and options of a gaming KBD with a quieter profile. I really like how Logitech has taken the position of the three lines (the GL Clicky, GL Linear & GL Tactile). It should allow for this amazing KBD to really match up with gamers preferences.

    I also really liked Logitech’s G HUB. This is where you can assign all the macros, adjust color profiles and patterns and explore other products. The GHUB software was fast and responsive and super easy to navigate and make the changes to the settings. Logitech really kills it with this amazing KBD… super responsive, top notch build and materials, sleek and compact great software, runs for 40 hours on a charge…It has it all!!!

    Amazing

    Best keyboard I have ever used. Taking into consideration I am used to using the Apple Magic Keyboard, I decided to give mechanical a shot and I went with this one, extremely low profile and the tactile switches are perfect for someone like me, a college student who types paper, and who codes/programs all day. Do your self a favor and buy this keyboard. Yes it is priced a little high but it is high quality, you get what you pay for. Online reviews say it “raddles” if you shake it but who is honestly going to be shaking it. If you do not want a TKL, you can also opt for the regular G915, same exact thing, just bigger (number pad, function buttons and a bigger volume wheel).

    Absolutely blown away by the feel and quality of this keyboard. Typing on it feels amazing and never gets old. This is a solid keyboard, 100% worth the hefty price. I’ve had no connection issues either and everything feels really smooth. 10/10

    Awesome!!

    I started out with the Black color way that wasn’t a tkl but really wanted the white color way as it made the rgb’s pop a lot more and bring out the color of this board. It works really well and the battery life is great, plus the G-Hub software is really neat and you can customize the rgb in a ton of ways. I look forward to using this keyboard for the years to come.

    Price is right

    The Razer Ornata V2 is pretty good. It has nice, clicky keys without being too loud.

    Each key is RGB customizable inside the Razer Synapse Software. The Razer software that is used alongside this keyboard has a small learning curve but I was able to understand it how it was done in about 10 minutes.

    Only reason it's not 5/5 is because there's no USB passthrough and the lack of dedicated Macros.

    -You can create macros using the software, but you would have to give up a key.

    Great keyboard for work

    I got a new computer at work, and the keyboard that came with it was horrible. So I decided I could either fuss and fume about it for the next 5 years or so, or I could buy my own. I went to to the store and tried all the keyboards they had, from the cheapest to the most expensive. By far the feel of this one was the best for typing (at least for me). Also, while they did not enter into my decision making process, I constantly get comments from folks telling me that they love the LEDs. (And I think they are pretty cool as well) while I don't use it for gaming, which I'm sure is what it was designed for, just for its basic keyboard functions it is fantastic!

    Solid gaming Keyboard - GamerLights Stronk

    Solid mechanical keyboard; responsive input and no issues approximately a month into the use with keystroke registration and it is a clearly noticible stroke initiation.

    My wife does hate the clickity clack however so if you desire a quite keyboard, mechanical is not the way to go.

    Also, have had no issues with Razer Synapse to date for this keybaord and the interface for customizing your lighting solutions is very much intuitive.

    Awesome keyboard

    So I got this keyboard to replace a solar Logitech that I had for the past few years..the battery started to go, and I'm sick of constantly needing to find light to charge it since my room is pretty dark throughout the day. I decided to go wired since I've begun gaming more on the PC anyway, so I found this Razer keyboard. It's really nice. Great feel for typing and for gaming, and the software is easy to use. The keyboard itself is pretty loud though so it's taking some time to get used to! However, the LED's are the coolest part and you can have all sorts of animations with them. My only gripe is the darkest level is 33% which makes no sense, and I wish it could go lower, only because when my eyes shift, I guess whatever the frequency of the LED is catches my eye every time. It's very odd. Either way, I just chose an almost black version of the color I wanted which makes it darker than 33%, so that's a quick work around. Either way, it's a great keyboard!

    I bought this keyboard because it was the cheapest Razer keyboard I could find and its great. It has different keys than I was used to but now that I'm used to it I type much faster and play games better. The keyboard is compatible with Razer chroma (changing the colors) and macro (press one key then it automatically presses many) with the Synapse app.

    The Razer Cynosa Chroma is a gaming keyboard manufactured by Razer. It features Razer Chroma full RGB lighting. This is great for people who like their setups to be colorful and interesting. The keyboard has a nice "click" that is incredibly satisfying. You can assign custom functions called "macros" which give you the ultimate advantage in MMOS or MOBAS.

    Solid keyboard for gaming and beyond

    Got this for work and light gaming - and it fits the bill nicely. Touch typists will appreciate the key action, and the options offered by Synapse make for a colorful experience. Macros are possible too.

    Not a true mechanical, so don't expect the feel and clack of one from the membrane switches here. That being said, if you're looking for a silent keyboard, look elsewhere, as this one does produce a nice bit of noise, but without the clack you'd get from a mechanical one.

    All in all, a nice, affordable gaming keyboard.

    This keyboard is so quiet! I love it! Response time is immaculate and perfect for FPS. The main reason I wanted this was because of the low profile keys and they are so good, its so satisfying to type fast on. You can customize how you want the lights to be, and can dim and brighten and flash and all the crazy things you'd want. Also cord is so thick and well made, definitely gonna last. The volume button is probably my favorite part because you can use it without looking and its fun to spin. 10/10 recommend

    A great keyboard for gamers.

    The typing experience is really good. I won't disagree with that. Dell is using standard switches to ensure compatibility with new key caps, if you prefer.

    Add the lighting options with AWCC, and you have a great gaming experience.

    It's not as loud as some of those keyboards. Its muted a bit, Some of us type fast and have families lmao.

    Anyway. I type better on chiclet type keys, so I gave this to my son. I can't deny the quality. Good job Dell.

    AW510K Keyboard

    The keyboard is very responsive and gives the user a semi mechanical feeling keyboard. It produces the right amount of “clicky” sounds. As a gamer/student, it gives a balance on the keyboard having a gaming vibe while doing my day to day task. Even my wife who’s not a gamer said that she actually liked how the keyboard is very user friendly. The only downside with this product is that it’s not wireless and doesn’t support any Bluetooth. It has a long wire but the wire is definitely a solid material that won’t tear easily! Overall I love the keyboard, but it’s slightly expensive for a wired keyboard w/ RGB lights.

    Magic at Your Fingertips

    The Alienware - AW510K is not only a good keyboard but it outshines other keyboards in multiple areas. Setting up the keyboard was easy and within minutes the Alienware Command Center popped up on my computer ready to set up my games and personalization. Not only does it keep track of all the games but I was able to set up and save controls for each game. The command Center is also where you set up your different lighting effects for your keyboard. This is where It got hard and could be made more user-friendly, but once I figured it out I had my keyboard doing all different lighting effects. Not only did I have it set up beautifully with the rainbow lighting effect but you can also set your keyboard to interact with each key strike. I have the rainbow effect with the Rainbow drops and it is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. There are so many effects that I'm excited to try out them all. I was also able to change the color of specific keys which really helped me. Not only did this keyboard improved my gaming but it improved my typing. I noticed how I'm excited to type now and typing faster than I did. The responsiveness of the keys are fast and the feel is smooth. The build quality of the keyboard is also nice and feels it will last years. Overall this is a great keyboard and I recommend it to any gamer or even someone who types a lot. My only suggestion would be to give yourself time to understand the Alienware Command Center and how personalize your keyboard.

    Great Keyboard, Subpar Software

    I would like to preface this review by mentioning that I have never used a mechanical keyboard ever. I am a person who has largely used chiclet/laptop style keyboards. As such, I was drawn to this keyboard for its low profile form and full size. It was also important to me to get a white keyboard, since I have a lot of vision issues against black keyboards, though this product ended up being more of a pale grey. The best I can describe the color as is the color of light grey toned paper, if you’re familiar with it. But with the LEDs on, it easily can be read as white, so this is not a huge issue. As long as I can see the keys, I’m satisfied.

    Typing takes some adjustments; not only am I coming from experience only with laptop keyboards, but I’m also not used to any type of mechanical keys. That being said, the MX Cherry Reds are smooth and sensitive; it doesn’t take much to register a keystroke. As a heavy handed typer, I haven’t noticed any issues regarding repetitive keystrokes, but I have learned that if I’m not careful I can lean my hand on a key too heavily and accidentally trigger it. Again, not a deal breaker. I’m very happy that the keys are solid and clicky, but not terribly loud that I will keep up my family in the other room. The sound is audible, but subtle. There is some instance of rattle and ping with keys like the space bar, shifts, and enter keys, but they aren’t so obvious while actually typing versus button mashing.

    The biggest issue I had wasn’t even with the keyboard itself. Alienware’s “Command Center” software is ridiculously slow, as well as sensitive. It took nearly 15 minutes to set up the keyboard’s lighting profiles. The software definitely hasn’t been optimized in a while. It functions, but barely enough to be decent. This isn’t an issue with the keyboard itself though, so it isn’t worth a star deduction, but definitely worth mentioning to future customers.

    If I was to nitpick, I would say that the LEDs for things like the function key lock, num lock, and similar features, is really annoying. I’ll be keeping my keyboard set to white (which is tinted slightly blue, FYI) for the most part anyways, but the fact that those keys light up white when in use is frustrating. Especially since I use media keys a lot and would prefer to keep the function lock on 24/7 for easier access to those. Maybe there is a way to configure this, but so far I haven’t found anything online. Once again, Dell provides relatively poor service in that department.

    Overall I really like this keyboard. It’s a premium price, so I recommend snagging it while on sale or open-box like I did. If you’re in the market for a white, low profile keyboard, this should fit the bill nicely, but there may be some cheaper alternatives if you can sacrifice some of the bells and whistles here.

    Quality piece, thoughtful design, great performanc

    I'm really happy with this keyboard. The low profile makes it a great choice for my keyboard mount, and it still has great key feel and travel. For me, a responsive mechanical keyboard makes my typing much faster and more accurate. This keyboard is quite a bit quieter than my other mechanical keyboards. The keys seem to have much tighter tolerances so there's no horizontal jiggling, if that makes sense.

    The layout is really nice for a general purpose keyboard -- I love the scrolling wheel for a volume control -- that wheel and the mute key are really easy to pick out making them very convenient for controlling sound, dealing with phone calls and interruptions, etc.

    The instructions it came with were really really vague. I finally figured out that the USB connectors had symbols on them, one for the keyboard and one for the USB port on the keyboard. The support website was a bit confusing too, since it seemed to want a Dell Tag number to be able to get support for the keyboard, and of course the keyboard doesn't have one. Finally I noticed I could just scroll down the page to get what I needed. Mine arrived with the Windows key disabled and it took a bunch of head-scratching and searching to figure out how to enable it.

    Now that I got it set up, I'm really enjoying it. The keyboard is solid and has some good weight to it, so it has a very stable typing feel and doesn't slide around on the desk at all, which is great for my articulated keyboard mount. The keys have a very normal keyboard layout so it's really easy to use and you don't have to remember any weird key locations for general use.

    Aside from the confusing setup, the keyboard lighting could use some improvement. It doesn't get extremely bright at the brightest, and it is really hard to see the alternate functions printed on some of the keys because the symbols are pretty fine and there's just not enough light shining through them to see what's what. I tried to take a picture, but I just can't capture the brightness difference of the key symbols. I guess my phone has better vision than I do! But in reality, the symbols on the function keys are really hard to make out. It's not enough of a problem to cost the review a star, though. The keyboard is awesome overall.

    After almost two years with mechanical keyboards,

    I have owned and used a blackwidow ultimate 2017 for almost two years and although I love the clicky loud green switches they have to offer, it was just time for an upgrade. The caps are beginning to wear and the cable has gone finicky. So I did some searching and got my self a switch tester with all various switches from manufacturers. I wanted something quiet, yet not so sensitive. I also own a blackwidow te tkl v2 with yellow switches and day to day typing is a nightmare (for me at least) with those super sensitive switches. I find myself typing a wrong key often. I barely owned that keyboard for 6 months before I went back to my blackwidow ultimate 2017 just this month. I felt cherry browns and razer orange might be the best switch to me, but I did not feel like spending much on a keyboard as I hardly use it when gaming on my PC now (controller user). Corsair offers the K55 (cheaper, also a membrane) and the newer K60 SE with cherry viola switches (more expensive, do feel nice), but I will admit I am a Razer fanboy as I have never had an issue with their products QA, dying on me, or issues with customer service since I switched over to using them in 2016. Out of the box, the cynosa v2 is presented in a much more generic looking package, the insert is brown and not padded like the more expensive offerings from Razer and it came wrapped in a clear plastic covering. One thing I did notice is Razer dropped from the previous cynosa is the LED logo from the bottom of the keyboard, now it just says 'Razer', definitely not a deal breaker though. Setting up the device was easy, W10 installed the driver and synapse detected a new peripheral automatically. Setting up the lighting was a breeze along with the macros. In terms of design, this board has a much more utilitarian look, matte black and a slim profile. One of the main reasons I went with the V2 over the original cynosa is due to the fact they included media keys, which do come in handy. The keys feel nice, and the keystrokes actuate with no issues. Definitely an easier typing experience already when compared to the yellow switches. I do wish Razer included a wrist rest like the ornata with the cynosa v2, but again not a deal breaker. I mean, it does what a keyboard should do, type. Keys register as they should and it has rollover, I have not missed a keystroke as of yet. But if you are picky and don't like what most call 'mushiness', then of course spend more and get a mechanical. But if your just a regular user, don't like mechanical, beginner PC gamer, or don't want to spend much on a gaming keyboard, the cynosa v2 definitely get's my thumbs up. Many would consider this a downgrade, but I did not see it as a downgrade for me personally. I was able to snag it for just under $30 buts it's a steal even @ $59.99.

    The Gaming Keyboard Reimagined

    I'm usually one to laugh at premium-priced gaming accessories, especially keyboards. But Logitech's new G815 wired keyboard is hard to resist for any PC enthusiast. It's sleek, incredibly thin, solidly built, and has one of the most satisfying key switches I've ever used.

    === DESIGN & COMFORT (4.5 Stars) ===

    - The G815 has a brushed-metal, charcoal-grey finish atop a solid plastic body. The keyboard is unbelievably thin -- less than 1 inch thick -- and is a welcome addition to my minimalist desk.

    - All of your standard gaming keyboard keys are here: a column of macro keys on the far left; three dedicated profile keys at the top; a backlight brightness key; and a key to enable Game Mode (which disables certain unneeded keys for gaming).

    - I'm a huge fan of the dedicated media key section at the top-right corner of the keyboard. The volume roller allows for precise volume control and the Play, Pause, Skip, and Mute keys seem to work with all of my media programs like VLC and Media Player Classic.

    - There are feet to increase the height and angle of the keyboard, but they only have one setting, leaving the keyboard fairly flat on my desk. There are times when I like to have my keyboard at more of an angle, so this is a small disappointment.

    - To achieve this design, Logitech had to sacrifice a wrist wrest for both the G815 and the wireless G915. I think it's a minor sacrifice in the grand scheme of things, but it's worth noting.

    === GL CLICKY SWITCHES & KEYS (5 Stars) ===

    - The GL Clicky switches feature an audible click and satisfying, tactile feedback as it reaches its actuation point of 1.5mm. At half the height of standard mechanical switches, the GL switches have a 25% faster actuation time.

    - The low profile of the keyboard and keys themselves makes it easy to type for long hours without tiring your fingers.

    - The keys themselves seem a bit more compact than larger keyboards, and the key caps may even be smaller than I'm used to. I find myself sometimes hitting adjacent keys more than I usually would, but I seem to be adjusting pretty quickly.

    - I've played Doom (2016) and Shadow of the Tomb Raider for several hours each with the G815. It's certainly the most responsive and comfortble keyboard I've gamed with. The low-profile switches definitely help register important keys quickly and repeatedly with minimal spring-back.

    - Typing on the G815 with the GL Clicky switches is an experience that can't be properly conveyed with words. You need to try this out for yourself to really get a feel for just how comfortable and satisfying it is.

    === CUSTOMIZATION & FEATURES (4 Stars) ===

    - The keyboard is controlled and customized through Logitech's G Hub software. There are dozens of pre-programmed RGB effects such as color wave, ripples, ocean waves, starry night and more. The RGB lighting is insanely customizable -- you can use the color brush tool to change the exact color of every key.

    - Unlike some gaming keyboards, not every key on the G815 can be customized. You're limited to the five macro keys across three macro profiles, so 15 macros in total.

    - You can customize which keys will be disabled during Game Mode, such as disabling the Windows key to avoid pausing or exiting the game.

    - Unfortunately, my keyboard has lost its connection to the G Hub software a few times since I received it. When this happens, my RGB and macro settings disappear until I either restart my computer or force-kill the G Hub app. I'm not sure what causes this, but I'm hoping it will improve with future software updates.

    - The G815 has a USB port at the top, which is great for quickly connecting flash drives or charging devices.

    === OVERALL (5 Stars) ===

    Setting aside the price, this has to be the best wired gaming keyboard on the market. Logitech has carefully reimagined and redesigned every aspect of its flagship keyboard lineup resulting in a beautiful design and incredible performance. I honestly can't think of anything else I would want in a keyboard.

    If you're trying to choose between the wired G815 and the wireless G915, keep in mind that the keyboards are identical except for the wireless connectivity. I chose the G815 since my keyboard is always in one spot and I already have enough devices that need to be charged.

    It's hard to ignore the hefty price. There are wired keyboards available for well under $100 with most of the same customization features. The G815 is absolutely a luxury keyboard -- and if you're serious about your gaming setup and having the best of the best, then this is the keyboard you want.

    Great keyboard!

    The keyboard is sturdy and has a quality feel to it, no flex to speak of. The housing seems to be anodized aluminum and is fairly thin and compact for a full size keyboard. The media keys are a nice touch without taking up too much space.

    The low profile keys take a little getting used to but they have a good feel and are quite comfortable to type on. I'd say the switches have a lighter actuation than Cherry blues but still have a satisfying click. I'm not usually a fan of clicky switches but these aren't overly loud. The space bar seems sturdy enough and actuates correctly if pressed on the corners.

    The G-Hub app is not the greatest but it gets the job done. It's got the usual profiles, macros, and lighting settings which seem to work correctly. The light sync works with a lot of games to give a little extra ambiance but it can be disabled in the app if it gets annoying. If you've got other Logitech stuff it's pretty easy to sync all the RGB.

    Overall I'm pleased with its performance, I don't have any complaints about it really. I'd recommend a good wrist rest for a little extra support. I've only had a couple weeks with it but I'll update my review after a few months or if I run into any issues.

    Nice but needs improvement

    I’ve been a fan of Logitech devices for years, as far back as the Mouse Man mouse in the early 1990s. I’ve owned multiple other branded keyboards, mice, speakers, and none of them had drawn me back as well as the Logitech devices. If you were to look around our home now you would find a few different Logitech Keyboards, Mice, Speakers and other peripherals, you may be able to find one or two off branded items but that’s it.

    I was using a G910 gaming keyboard and have been using it since they first came out a few years back. I’ve never had any problems with it and it is still my favorite keyboard for gaming, “I’m mainly a FPS and RPG gamer, “going way back to the Commodore 64 days”. I’ve been playing The Witcher 3 “again” and that’s when I saw the news about the new line of Logitech keyboards were coming out and wanted to give the G815 a try.

    First Looks:

    The keyboard came well packed with only a simple instruction book, “G” sticker, that’s it. The keyboard itself is very slim and compact, “makes my G910 look huge”, but that’s a good thing. I’ve always found the 910 to be bulky and a little too wide, “I’ve gotten used to that” but do find myself pushing the keyboard left/right due to the width and trying to keep my mouse near, it just takes up a lot of space. The G815 is a lot narrower, the height is a lot less and the width is finally where it needed to be.

    Even with everything slimmed down the new G815 is no lightweight, it’s actually very sturdy and has a good heft to it, the 910 weighs in at 3.5lbs and the 815 at 2.5lbs, lighter but still pretty hefty for a keyboard. It also has some pretty thick rubber feet on the bottom and it won’t be sliding around my desk. There are two adjustable legs under side also, with two different heights, “I’m using the lowest right now”. The aluminum top half of the body is pretty thick and rigid; it’s going to be a breeze to clean off anything that gets on it.

    The first thing I noticed though is there isn’t a wrist rest included, and that’s something I’m used to having so if you want to get one ahead of time if you are replacing a keyboard that has a built in wrist rest like the 910 has.

    The attached cable is a little unusual too, it has a split end with two full sized USB connectors, looking closely they are marked with a keyboard symbol and a USB symbol, the second one with the USB symbol is for a USB port on the keyboard itself “didn’t even notice it at first” but you can plug in your mouse transmitter/receiver or mouse cable here. I’m currently using the G703 mouse wired and it works perfectly connected to the USB port on the keyboard.

    The layout of the keyboard is pretty good, most of the keys are in the same place except the 910 has a secondary row of programmable keys on the upper left side where the 815 does not. “I never used those keys so I’ll never miss them.” There are media keys just above the keypad, and above those is a volume roller, it’s a lot smaller in diameter than the one on the 910 but it’s a lot wider and very easy to use. My only complaint is the Num and Caps lock LED at the top is really bright white “you can’t miss it” and for me it’s distracting, I’ll be putting something over those to dim them down to a reasonable level.

    Software:

    The new G Hub software replaces the old Logitech Gaming software that was getting pretty old and hadn’t been updated since 2016, “It still worked well for my uses”. The new software is more streamlined and better looking and allows you to set the keyboard lighting to any of the presets or you can create your own custom one. Macros are easy enough to set up and there’s plenty of options for them. The only annoying thing I find is if I select a preset like “Echo Press” the change the colors to my liking, I cannot find how to save that because if you try out any other setting and then go back it reverts back to the default, hopefully that will be addressed in a future upgrade.

    Actual use:

    I already had the G Hub software installed and it’s a nice upgrade over the old gaming software.It’s easy to use and custom configure your back-light settings. Each key is full RGB and can be set to any color you prefer, or you can use one of the presets in the G Hub software.

    Typing on the keyboard is great; the keystrokes are shorter than the 910s and feel lighter because of it. The “clicky” feedback is exactly what I like, not to loud and has a nice subtle old school click to it.

    I’ve been playing Witcher 3, Fallout 4, and Skyrim on it and its working great. It’s not exactly the same feel as the 910 so it’s taking a little bit to get completely use to it. The keys on the 910 are very concaved / sculpted, and easy to find center. The 815s keys are slightly concaved but easy enough to find center on by feel.

    Conclusion:

    Unfortunately this isn’t a perfect keyboard “for myself or my wife”, my first complaint being the Num and Cap Lock lights are very bright white, and you cannot change or dim them in any way. I usually game in an unlit room and those two lights stick out like “a sore thumb”. This is something that for a keyboard of this price should not have been over looked. Those lights on the 910 are a nice blue that while cannot be changed are dim enough not to bother me. I solved this problem by placing some colored gel filter over them, shouldn’t have to do that. My wife saw that and made the same remark, “why are they so bright, it’s annoying”.

    The second big gripe is how the keys are back-lit “highlighted”, the lettering is not centered but off centered to the top of each key. The symbols on the numeric keys are not lit, and very lightly printed, if you happen to look down to find a symbol you won’t see it in a darkened room “should have your keyboard memorized anyway, but not good for an average typist”, my wife saw this and hated it.

    The rest of the keys like the “ ‘ : ? . ,” are all back-lit and printed upside down to every other keyboard I’ve ever used, nope not liking it, and another contention my wife has with this keyboard “she doesn’t want to use it and want’s the old 910 style keys. She did say though that typing on it was great, she really liked the short keystroke and how the keys feel, but if she has to glance down to find a specific key like the “{“then you aren’t going to find it, only the “[“ part is back-lit, so for her this keyboard is a no go and wants to use the 910 over it. I have a Mec 15 laptop that has mechanical keys, the keys are back-lit at the top just like this keyboard but they didn’t print them upside down, all keys and secondary symbols are printed side by side so everything is backlit and easy to find in a dark room, I wish the 815 were like that.

    For me, I don’t care for the positioning of the key labeling and how it’s reversed on those keys; I can live with it but don’t care for it at all. I do like typing and game play on it as the short keystroke is great, but these shortcomings mentioned should not be there on a keyboard that’s priced like this one.

    This is going to be one of those love/hate things where you just have to try out the keyboard itself and see if it's to your liking or not. If you don't mind the way the keys are printed and back-lit then you will really enjoy this new keyboard, I myself may end up going back to the 910 mainly for the way the keys are back-lit, otherwise typing on it is really good.

    Metal low profile without sacrificing the switches

    Pros

    Long key travel

    Fast actuation, only 1.5mm

    Satisfying click when activated

    Light feel to key travel

    Full RGB effects per key

    RGB effects can change automatically per game

    Five programmable keys and four macro keys

    Game mode button disables your problem keys

    Adjustable brightness

    Low profile for mechanical keyboard

    Media keys and volume scroll wheel

    USB Passthrough

    Metal top plate makes for a rigid build

    Cons

    Concave on keys too subtle

    Smooth finish on keys allows fingers to drift easier

    F and J tabs on the small size to quickly find your position

    Programmable keys hard to tell from main keys on the left

    Design

    The Logitech G815 has a plastic base with a metal top plate which allows the low-profile design to retain a surprising amount of rigidity. The main portion of the keyboard is a standard size and layout so nothing to mess up your muscle memory. Keys have a slight concave to help with locating. The switches are mechanical with a light and satisfying click when activated. Activation distance is 1.5mm and the total travel distance is 3.0mm. The keys sit above the deck, so the lighting effects are visible from the sides and anything that falls between the keys is easy to find. The configurable backlight for each key also gets very bright if you want so you should have no trouble seeing it even in a bright room or barely visible in a dark room. To the left of the main keyboard are five programmable buttons. To the top left of the keyboard are three macro buttons and a macro record button which you can set to change the function of the programmable keys on the fly or do things such as change your lighting profile. To the right of the macro keys are a joystick key and backlight key with 5 brightness levels. To the far right above the number pad are media keys for back, play/pause, forward, and mute. Directly above the media keys is a large scroll wheel to allow quick volume changes. Included is a USB passthrough port which Logitech doesn’t seem to specify which revision. The port has no indications of USB 3, so it is most likely USB 2. The USB cable is thick and braided and requires 2 USB, one for the keyboard and the other for the passthrough.

    Usage and Performance

    Macro keys and programmable keys are nothing new. What is different, that not all gaming keyboards have, is the ability to set macro and programmable keys to switch function based on the game you play. If you prefer specific key combinations between games, you add your game to G-Hub and when you launch your game then all presets will switch automatically to your preferred setup. If you create a Logi account, you can also save them to the cloud, so it follows you to any compatible peripherals. If you aren’t sure of how you want your keyboard setup, or you are looking for inspiration, you can also use G-Hub to download profiles that other games have shared and quickly try their layout.

    The joystick button is one of the more interesting keys that makes you wonder why no one thought to create it sooner. If you have ever been in the middle of an intense game and accidentally hit the wrong key, such as the Windows key, then you will love the joystick, button. In G-Hub, you configure which keys you want to disable during gaming. The exact keys you wish to disable is up to you, but when you press the joystick button it will disable the keys you configured. No more worrying of accidental button press brining up the Windows menu in the heat of battle. Another feature that is surprisingly helpful is the volume scroll wheel. At first glace you might wonder why it is so large. During gameplay this can come in handy. When moving around from a loud battle to an area where you need to hear the slight footstep you can change the volume easily on the fly without even looking down as it is very easy to find.

    As with any modern gaming keyboard it is becoming increasingly difficult to perceive any lag and the G815 is no exception. With each click of the keyboard you can have confidence that you won’t get a missed tap. Double taps occur only when you choose and not on their own. Just like any keyboard with extra keys, the programmable keys take some adjustment as their layout and placement is just a slightly larger gap. Any further and they might be out of range of your fingers. This of course isn’t exclusive to the G815 and it would be nice if either there was a stop you could feel on the keys or maybe even nubs with different markings to help you get the hang of where each one is specifically located. These features could potentially help reduce the adjustment phase.

    Of course, no product is perfect so you might be wondering what the downsides are. This is more of a personal preference, but the keys have a smooth finish making it easy for your fingers to drift. It is good to make quick movements smoother, but you might find you fingers slipping in between keys slightly until you get your muscle memory adapted. The locating nubs are also smaller, so it takes a little more work to keep your placement precise to prevent accidental button presses. A slightly textured finish and taller tabs could give that extra edge to keep your actions precise. Also, if you have become accustomed to gaming keyboards that have an extra nub on the S key to help you quickly locate the center of WASD, you are out of luck on the G815. Of course, these are minor gripes that become even less important with good muscle memory, but it would be nice if future generations adopted some of these concepts.

    Final Thoughts

    It’s nice to see the gaming keyboard market getting refined to the point to where it’s getting harder to recommend one over the other. This means the consumer benefits in the end by having more choices. The G815 checks all the boxes that a gamer would want and adds a few extra features some may not have even realized would be helpful. It’s nice to see Logitech still managing to find a way to add extra value to a pretty well-defined market. The Logitech G815 is easy to recommend. If you don’t like the clicky style keys, they even offer linear and tactile to suit your taste. You can even go wireless by choosing the G915 if you wish with the only sacrifice being a little more from your wallet. If you are in the market for a gaming keyboard, the G815 should be on your short list.

    Excellent for productivity and casual gaming

    Finally! I've been waiting for Logitech to design a keyboard similar in design to the Microsoft Natural keyboard. I've owned a range of Microsoft ergonomic keyboards, which include the 4000, Sculpt, Surface Ergonomic, etc. I've also owned many Logitech keyboards (gaming and ergonomic), but never found them as comfortable as the Microsoft keyboards.

    I've been using this keyboard for well over a month and must say that I am absolutely please with the comfort and responsiveness. The keys are soft, the wrist pad is comfortable, and includes all the functionality that I need in a keyboard. The only minor drawback that I experienced in the beginning was that the right side of the keyboard is spaced about 1/2" closer to the left side of the keyboard, which threw me off for the first few days. This just required some adjustments because my "muscle memory" had to be retrained.

    So what do I like about this keyboard?

    * It's wireless (unlike to 4000 Ergonomic keyboard)

    * It wakes up almost instantly as soon as I press a key (unlike my Surface Ergonomic Bluetooth keyboard which takes several seconds to wake up)

    * It doesn't intermittently stop responding when long pressing keys while gaming (unlike my Sculpt, which will become unresponsive for about 30 seconds at random times)

    * The keys are soft like the Surface and Sculpt

    * It's a split keyboard design like the Microsoft Natural designs for people like me who've grown accustomed to using this style keyboard

    * The wrist pad is soft similar to the Microsoft keyboards, but seems more durable and less likely to stain unlike the Microsoft keyboards

    * Includes a Fn key (unlike the Sculpt), making it easy to use the F1-F12 keys without a toggle switch

    * It supports Bluetooth (or their Unifying USB receiver) for wireless communication

    * It can be paired with up to three devices (PC, Macs, and anything with Bluetooth support)

    Regardless of its strengths, this also goes without saying that the keyboard also has some minor shortcomings.

    * The gap between the padding and the keyboard is a big enough channel that will allow dirt to get trapped

    * The padding cannot be detached (nor appears to be replaceable)

    * No Fn key on the left side of the spacebar (there's only one Fn key, which is to the right of the spacebar)

    * May take at least a couple days to adjust due to muscle memory being used to a previous keyboard

    * A little more pricey than comparable keyboards

    I can't comment on the ability to remap/customize the keys since I'm completely fine with the default setup, but I do know that it's possible.

    Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with this keyboard since I wasn't expecting it to feel like my previous Microsoft keyboards. I assure you that if you like the design and comfort of Microsoft keyboards, you will appreciate this keyboard even more. It's excellent for productivity, as well as for casual gamers. If you're looking for a Microsoft Natural keyboard replacement, look no further. I highly recommend this if you can deal with the minor shortcomings mentioned above.

    Advanced ergonomics

    This is Logitech's only split ergonomic keyboard. It's also the first ergonomic keyboard that can simultaneously be paired to multiple devices, is wireless and supports multiple operating systems.

    This keyboard is a great complement to the MX Vertical mouse, which I'm also using.

    The layout uses 'island' keys that feel similar to a laptop keyboard: The keys are slightly separated, with a limited travel compared to mechanical keys.

    With the divided keyboard, each side is tilted left/right for a more natural resting positions of the hands.

    The media and desktop shortcut keys are fully functional on both macOS and Windows 10.

    The integrated wrist rest is nicely padded while maintaining the keyboard's contour.

    As a quirk, a phone can slide nicely under the curve on the keyboard.

    Battery: It uses 2xAAA alkaline batteries. Logitech claims two years battery life. This might be true. I'm also using another Logitech (with mechanical keys) and it's been over a year with the same batteries.

    On the plus side of using AAA batteries, there is no planned obsolescence here: Change the standard batteries and works like new again.

    Connectivity: It can either use the Logitech unifying USB receiver, or it supports Bluetooth 5.0 LE. Note that if using an older computer that does not support Low Energy mode, the keyboard might not work with Bluetooth, but works with the USB receiver.

    The Unifying receiver can connect to up to 6 devices (On the same receiver).

    I cannot reinforce enough how reliable the connection is with the unifying receiver, and one receiver works with both keyboard and mouse.

    The keyboard has three buttons to switch devices it connects to, or if using a compatible Logitech mouse, enable Flow to seamlessly switch between devices. This keyboard supports flow when used with the Logitech MX Vertical mouse, and it works between macOS and Windows 10.

    It took me about a week to adapt to this keyboard, coming from a mechanical keyboard.

    There are no lift tabs on the back of the keyboard, instead they are on the front so it can lean backwards when using it on a standing desk.

    As potential cons to consider, as per one's preferences:

    - No option to recharge batteries.

    - No wired USB: Wireless only.

    - No backlight keys.

    - No mechanical keys: From personal experience, it took me longer to get used to the shorter travel than to the split keyboard.

    - Keycaps are not removable.

    I don't want to take my fingers off it!

    I’ve been using Logitech products for several years. I have an MX Mouse that I absolutely adore. I’d been thinking about using a split keyboard as I often spend hours at my desk typing various things (mainly e-mail and reports). While it certainly takes some getting used to, after using the keyboard for a few days, I really don’t want to move my hands. The wrist rest is incredibly comfortable and gives my hands a lot of support. They feel much more natural than with a standard keyboard. I didn’t realize what I was missing until I went down this route!

    They keyboard is a good size and weight. The keys create the right level of resistance and travel. They feel very comfortable to use. I don’t find myself accidentally typing anything I don’t want, nor do I find myself with tired fingers at the end of the day. The only difficulty I really have is finding the “Y” and “B” keys with my fingers. Apparently, I taught myself incorrectly when I learned to touch type many years ago. This keyboard is forcing me to learn the standard approach. I can’t blame Logitech for my own poor education. Curiously, the hardest phrase for me to write now is ‘Natural typing position’. If you can get that right on this keyboard, thank your instructor!

    The K860 connects via Bluetooth or with the included dongle. You can also connect with up to 3 devices such as a laptop, phone, or TV. The downloadable software allows you to customize the function keys on your Windows or Mac machine. By default, the custom functions are in play (like many laptops these days). You can change that easily with the fn-lock button, a nice addition instead of having to go through the software. The keyboard is missing a ‘Pause’ key, but it adds keys for calculator and ‘right click’ menu context. Personally, I use those way more than I use pause in my office work. It will sit comfortably on your lap or on your desk, depending on what your natural typing position is.

    The only thing I would take points off for was Logitech’s decision not to include backlit keys, rechargeable batteries, or Flow on this model. Mechanically and from a design perspective, this keyboard shares a pedigree with Logitech’s ‘MX’ series of premium devices. It also shares a price point, coming in slightly above the MX Keys keyboard that includes the above. Moving to this from the K800 backlit keyboard would have been a much easier choice if I hadn’t had to give up that functionality. Ultimately, that takes a star off the review for what’s otherwise an excellent unit.

    Great Keyboard

    I'm going to start by first admitting that I have had the opportunity over the years to use multiple Logitech products and I have never been dissapointed. This keyboard is no different.

    This is a quality keyboard. The packaging is attractive and effective. In the box you have the keyboard, the usual quick start guide, USB adapter and batteries. A note on the batteries: they are listed to last 2 years and while I can't vouch, I have no reason to doubt the claim based on my previous experience with Logitech equipment.

    The keyboard comes with a USB option and a Bluetooth option. I connected to my AIO desktop via Bluetooth and it took just seconds. It can be connected to up to 3 devices via BT and easily switched by selecting one of three key options to toggle back and forth between the devices. If you don't have a BT option, you can use the USB option. In the battery compartment, there is a convenient slot to hold the USB adapter.

    As for the keyboard itself, the wrist pad is an great inclusion, but note, it is relatively large and does take up more real estate on your desk than most others. If you have the room, this is well worth the trade. The keys are sooth and quiet. It also has the option to program the F keys. I tested it (even though I probably won't use it) and it was easy to do and I could see how it could be a nice feature for some users.

    As several other reviewers have mentioned, if you are not used to using the split keyboard then there is a learning curve. This is NOT a knock or negative on the keyboard, just a clinical fact. That said, after a little practice it's a really nice KB all around.

    The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it did not include a back-light option. I guess they purposefully excluded that for the sake of battery life, but as a night-owl, I do some of my best work well after dark and would have appreciated that at least as an option. Oh well, not a deal breaker.

    In all, a great keyboard from a consistently good company. I would eagerly recommend to a friend.

    Well done Logitech.

    Type faster and more accurately w/ this keyboard

    Let me preface this by saying that I very rarely give out 5 star reviews. Most people would rate this 5 stars, but then most people either rate a 1 or a 5. I would give this 4.5 stars if it were on option.

    Pros:

    *ergonomic

    *capable of switching between multiple devices (I have not tried this)

    *wireless

    *I find my typing to be more accurate with this keyboard

    *I typically type between 80 and 90wpm. I did a quick typing speed test with this keyboard and it came back at 100wpm with 100% accuracy.

    *Matches the MX vertical mouse

    Cons:

    *For some reason the windows menu button is not in the normal spot. Normally it is located between the right alt and control keys. For some reason Logitech decided to put this on the top right. I might as well reach for my mouse and use the right click since I have to move my hand up there anyways.

    *no pause break key

    *the palm rest is not removable

    *keys are a bit soft to the touch and I wish they had a bit more of a tactile feel like a mechanical keyboard.

    *kinda pricy and they don't sell it as a set with a mouse

    Over all I really like this keyboard and I am torn between 4 and 5 stars. I would give it 5 if Logitech could take care of a few of the items on my cons list. That being said this was my last component of my dream work from home set up. I don't know that a keyboard exists I would be 100% happy with (ideally I want a mechanical ergonomically shaped wireless keyboard with all the keys in the traditional spots)

    There is a lock key which can be handy for some. I don't think I'll ever use as I am pretty used to just hitting windows + l to lock my screen.

    Best Keyboard in a Long Time!!!!

    One of the best keyboards I've used in years! The ERGO shape makes spending long hours working on the computer a pleasant experience. I like the low profile keys and the tactile feel of the key presses. I've been using Logitech keyboard for over a decade and by far this is the best one yet! My only complaint, as shared with others, is the new "Options" software... Bring back the many options found in the old SetPoint!!! Highly recommend the ERGO K860!

    It has a curve to it!

    My wrists would typically hurt after a long work day at my computer, so I decided to give this keyboard a shot as it does look more ergonomic. Large wrist support cushion at the bottom is designed to support your writs at a more natural angle, not parallel to the desk.

    Does this help with the pain? Yes! After just a couple days behind this keyboard I've noticed an improvement! It was sure difficult to get used to a curved shape, I had to re-adjust my typing habits a little, for example I was used to hitting B with my right thumb vs the left one. There is definitely a learning curve to get used to it. I was missing the keys at the beginning and typing real slow, but just after a couple hours I've got it.

    Other than a curved shape - there is not a lot of features. Keyboard is battery powered (2xAAA batteries at the bottom) so it does not have a backlight. No "wheel" like on a Logitech Craft. Keyboard supports re-mapping of the function keys using Logitech Options software.

    Who would I recommend this keyboard to? Someone who writes a lot - definitely! Someone who needs more functionality and uses mouse most of the time (graphic design) - No. Look at Logitech Craft instead.

    What would I improve? Support of up to 3 different computers via Bluetooth or Unifying receiver is nice, but no backlight and AAA battery power is definitely a step back.

    Comfort & Convenient

    At work I spend a lot of time working at a computer and my hands get stiff / numb occasionally. After I switched to this keyboard, I noticed right away that my wrist were straighter and the built-in rest is really comfortable. I guess I really took for granted something I use everyday.

    Pros

    - Includes a wireless USB receiver and Bluetooth that can be paired to multiple computers. There are buttons on the keyboard that allow you to swap between paired devices.

    - Wrist rest and angle adjustment really reduce the pressure / bending you feel.

    - Useful short cut keys for launching apps and commands.

    - Keys have labels for Mac and PC.

    - Very quiet.

    Things To Consider

    - The split key layout takes some getting used to. I have an old injury that limits the use of my pinkie finger on my right hand and so I was used to typing a little offset to compensate. The first day was hard, but I have gotten faster over the past week and the double space bar really works.

    - Key travel is shallow and the weight is on the lighter side. Not a big issue for me and this does make it very quiet.

    This is a quality keyboard that adds comfort and convenience. The split keys do have a learning curve, but I wouldn’t go back to a regular keyboard.

    Works really well with my iPad and iPhone

    I have this model, K380, as well as it's bigger brother, the K780, which I use on my laptop. The keyboards are quite good but I purchased them because of the aforementioned Apple products I use daily. I cannot stand to type on my iPhone and don't really like typing on my iPad, but at least the keyboard on the iPad is much larger.

    Some of the other reasons I like using these keyboards is because I can often use the spacebar to start and stop videos, use the arrow keys to go forward or backward in the video, and use the volume and mute keys. They don't work with all videos, and sometimes you have to be full-screen with them for those keys to work. You can also use the arrow keys and Ctrl-Arrow to move through web pages.

    The K380 is about the same width of my iPad which is also nice, especially if I want to take it with me.

    This lil keyboard is a dream. The fact that it has 3 channels to connect to 3 separate devices makes me feel like the "guy in the chair" just swapping from one device to the next never moving my hands. its also lightweight, slim, and super convenient to tote around. my only issue with it is the fact that it takes removeable batteries... it doesnt have a rechargable internal battery. Sorry for my typing, recently burned my hand.

    Works with PS4 :)

    I bought this for my PlayStation Pro and I was taking a chance of it not being compatible and the store clerk said he wasn’t sure it would work because it doesn’t state that it would work with PS4. I got it home and it works great. PS4 paired with it really quick & I also paired it with my iPad.

    Best keyboard for modern devices

    I was pondering a replacement case for my iPad Mini 3 whose logitech keyboard case had gotten wet and subsequently failed (it's often sitting on a counter in my kitchen when I'm cooking). While pondering cases, I realized that a case and separate keyboard solution would be best. I pondered buying an Apple wireless keyboard, saw this at $30 on sale and figured I'd give it a chance.

    While it may not be the best keyboard I've ever used in a tactile sense, it's a very good keyboard because of all it offers. The three buttons allow for devices of all sort, whether Windows, Mac, (haven't tested with my linux system yet), iOS, Droid and I also assume Windows Phone. To be honest, it has done so well at replacing the keyboard I originally had that using my iPad has become virtually like an iOS laptop, with enough flexibility that I can switch it to my mac, my phone or other devices if I unpair one of the original connections.

    Quite, quite happy with this keyboard.

    Great Keyboard That Doesn't Hog Your Desk!

    I purchased this keyboard to replace a Microsoft Wedge Keyboard that accidentally had a soft drink spilled on it. At first I didn't know if I was going to like the circle keys but I found myself use to it in no time. I hate gigantor keyboards and this one takes up half the space as a regular size keyboard. It connected effortlessly with Bluetooth on my PC and I am happy I purchased it!

    Great choice

    If you are looking for something slim this is not it. Everything else is a plus. I like how the keyboard lights up. It has an insert key, something apple keyboards no longer have. I have a Mac and needed a universal keyboard. This fits the bill. The wrist rest is comfy and the back adjusts up.

    Great keyboard for low light users.

    Overall, this is a great keyboard. I'm a heavy user and the rechargeable batteries did not require a recharge until six weeks later after the first charge. That was much better than I expected. The lay out and feel wasn't much different than my other 10 year old Logitech keyboard that bit the dust. The only improvement I recommend is to extend the auto turnoff illumination time longer. It turns off after 3 seconds. That is annoying when working in low light. There is the option to turn on keys all the time but I prefer the auto turnoff to extend battery life.

    One thing to note is that my Logitech MX 700 mouse now has some minor compatibility issues that may be from wireless signal interference between the mouse and keyboard. So if you have an old Logitech wireless mouse you may need to upgrade the mouse as well.

    Get this keyboard

    This is probably the best keyboard I have ever used. Some keyboards just don't feel right or aren't easy to type with. This keyboard has neither issue. The only issue i have is that I wish I would have bought one sooner. Not sure if the illumination does anything for me since I only use this in an office setting where the lights are always on, but it's a neat feature to have. The charge lasts quite awhile about 5-7 days without turning off and seems to recharge quickly. This is a great product by logitech...go get you one!

    Solid keyboard

    I have been using the keyboard for a couple weeks now and overall I am satisfied.

    Pros: Each key can change light color, complete with unique customized designs of your choice or use previously designed layouts using the free software download. The "arx dock release" aka the phone holder, works well and perfectly sized for my Note 9 (with bumper case) I have not used the suggested phone app as the reviews were poor and didn't have a need.

    Small Con: Un-customizable/always-on blue light is displayed for each: num lock, caps lock, scroll lock when turned on; plus the blue lights for the volume button and music control buttons in top right corner.

    Pro or Cons (depending on you): the keys hug your fingers (in my case this lead to my fingers tripping over other keys when typing fast, adjusting just fine) With this mechanical keyboard your typing will be heard by anyone in the room. Don't expect to add much height with the kickstand.

    Overall 4.5 out of 5 and would recommend; will adjust if anything goes wrong. Paid just under one-hundred USD(including tax) during sales for the general public in NOV'18. I have never owned an RGB mechanical keyboard until this G910 and dont regret it yet.

    A great performance keyboard.

    After shopping around for a new keyboard for almost a month, I bought this right away for one reason; in store, it was 99$. What a steal! I was so close to getting a G810 but once the sale started, it was a no-brainer.

    The keyboard will never slide around, and the Romer-G switches really allow RGB to shine. I'd say it's the cleanest keyboard I've owned. Pictures don't do it justice.

    The Romer-G switches themselves are fantastic. It's a great switch that has that tactile feel when making quick strokes, but just mushy enough so when writing an email, the sound isn't obnoxious.

    The keys in game, do they make a difference? Yes, I believe so. Any movement in say a shooter, really feels much more fluid with your mouse. But when snap shooting, it gives you the micro to precisely be where you want it.

    Cons: It's a big keyboard, which isn't a big deal for me but for others it may. Logoitech's software can be confusing but it's manageable.

    Overall, get it if you have the budget, get it ESPECIALLY if it's sub 100, and if you can't, get a G810, you won't be disappointed.

    Keyboard packed with all kinds of features!!!

    Being the first keyboard I've ever purchased, it feels so much better than the one on my PC. The keys are super responsive and make a decent sound when you're typing, but not so much while you play, other than the space bar. Not sure if I'm doing somethinh wrong during setup ot not, but the RGB lights from the keys don't exactly match the timing as the G logo on the top left or the G910 on the bottom left when I have a pattern running across from either left to right, top to bottom and vice versa. Easy fix though, I just left those two a constant color while the keys do their thing! The volume scroll wheel is super convenient as well as the ARX dock feature which holds my phone perfectly, even with a case! The little plastic bit that serves as a palm rest is convenient, but likes to snap loose when you try to pick it up by grabbing it from the top and bottom, but all you need to do is snap it back into place amd your good to go! All in all a pretty solid keyboard, especially with the programmable buttons and customizable profiles for different games! I still have yet to use most of the features that it has built in but so far I'm impressed!

    Great board but mine has a slight defect

    This is a great 60% keyboard. It’s got a really good weight to it which makes it feel quality. The materials are also very nice. The lighting effects available through the software are okay; not nearly the amount of options as my previous Corsair keyboard but it’s livable. The reason this isn’t a five star review is because the cool topographic space bar keycap this comes with has a slight defect in the form of a raised bump. Overall great keyboard for $100.

I have previously had the tkl and the elite 2, boat fantastic keyboard for what they were, although the came stock with ABS smooth skycaps. Wasn’t too big into keyboards so I though nothing of it and Carrie on. I was on the fence for this one for maybe about 2 days probably even less when I decided to get it and I don’t regret it one bit. Freed up my desk for a lot more room and is more than comfortable. I enjoy how the secondary function for the arrow keys is actually on the bottom right as if it were a tkl and not wedged up in the middle like other 60 percent boards. This board comes stock with PBS caps so they have a smooth yet textured feeling that doesn’t reflect back from being bare bones regular plastic and it’s very enjoyable. I love this board and everything it comes with would totally recommend it to anyone.

    Love it!

    After researching so many different 60% keyboards, I ultimately decided to choose this one. I'm so in love with this keyboard!!! The sound is great, it's super responsive and neatly compact. It was really easy to figure out all the switches too.

    Amazing keyboard

    Had a full keyboard and after using this one for days I got more comfortable playing on PC coming from a console, the red switches feel great

    Just do it!

    Nice conservative keyboard for minimalist, or someone just needing more space. The pudding caps are the cherry on top.

    Quality, you can definitely feel sturdiness.

    4 stars because of the interface/software used to customize keyboard

    Good-looking traveler!!!

    Excellent 60% KB for the price. All-metal body construction, Cherry Red RGB LED switches (instead of on the board), Anti-ghosting, N-Key, and PBT caps. Very decent for a pre-built. I usually DIY my own KB using DROP parts but I needed a "beater travel KB" and this fit the bill. I couldnt leave it alone so... had to change caps and cord.

    Excellent Keyboard For The Price

    TYPING/GAMING EXPERIENCE:

    It reminded me a lot of typing on a membrane keyboard but with a tactile bump and clicky sound. The keys seem closer together than other keyboards I’ve tried. I found myself making more mistakes than normal. I usually type around 100 – 130 wpm. I’m not sure if this was due to the switch itself or because I wasn’t allowing the switch to fully reset since I’m used to switches resetting at a different point. It does have 24 key rollover which is good for gaming. Meaning you can press multiple keys (up to 24 of them) and they will still register.

    For gaming it did a good job. I did not like it nearly as much as my mechanical keyboards as I felt that the problems that I was having with making more mistakes in my typing bled over into my gameplay as well. I didn’t feel like I had the same amount of control as I usually do. I’ve also found that for me personally that I prefer linear key switches when I am gaming because they feel more responsive than clicky/tactile. But it’s the opposite for when I am typing. Where I prefer to have tactile/clicky. Honestly, for the mass majority of people this will do the job just fine. Especially, if you are coming from a membrane switch. If you’re trying to become a Pro Gamer, or are a crazy fast typist, then buy a true mechanical keyboard. You won’t regret it. For everyone else this should be a consideration.

    KEYBOARD AETHETICS/FEEL:

    The font itself is very nice. It is not gamer like. It is big and easy to read. One of my favorites that I have seen. However, for certain keys such as the Caps Lock, Shift, Tab, and Enter it just shows an arrow instead of the word which looks cool but could be difficult for first time gamers trying to get used to keyboard controls (see picture). Interestingly the insert, home, page up, page down, and delete key are labeled as macro keys first with their normal function listed below (see picture).

    The keyboard’s frame is made of aircraft aluminum which obviously feels high quality. Normally you don’t see this at this price range. The keys themselves are your normal ABS plastic which attract finger oil easily. You can easily replace them as the switch itself is the usual. I would worry about the spacing between the keys if you were to replace them with PBT keycaps. On the bottom of the keyboard there is great cable management which you also usually don’t see even on more expensive keyboards. That allows you to either put it to the top left, top middle, or the top right. The cable itself is covered in a malleable plastic which leads to a single USB. There is no USB passthrough. The keyboard legs themselves are huge and solid. The absolute biggest I’ve ever seen which isn’t a complaint. They only go up one level. The small volume rocker is 10/10. It takes a moderate amount of pressure to move, doesn’t wobble at all, and is made of metal with a nice texture. You can press it which produces a nice click. As does the multimedia key. The shift and other long keys have stabilizers. Which makes the pressure feel even no matter where you hit. Last, the magnetic wrist rest feels high quality with a matte rubber feel to it. It attracts oil easily. Doesn’t provide a lot of support. But attaches seamlessly via magnets. Which you usually only get on more expensive keyboards.

    SOFTWARE:

    When I first downloaded the software, I was met with an immediate firmware update. It was simple to install. The software itself is very basic and easy to figure out and learn. It works, and it works well. You can upload your own custom stuff to the OLED which is actually awesome. Such as your gamertag or name. It’s a small thing but makes this product so much more personable than any other keyboard out there. SteelSeries is the only company that I know of that has OLED displays no their keyboards.

    As for the RGB lighting. For this price point it is excellent as it competes with keyboards that are a lot more expensive. But is not equal to more expensive keyboards. But you really aren’t missing out on anything unless you are over the top about your lighting. Most keyboards at this price range will either not be backlit, be a single color, or a handful of colors. With this one you can adjust all the keys individually (except for the multimedia key) between 16.7 million colors and they also have some effects you can choose from. Such as base effect, reactive layer, AFK effect, and lock key color.

    The colors themselves are quite accurate which a lot of keyboards struggle with. Even white. The keys are not completely balanced when lit. Especially, the num pad as they are left of center. The LED has a thick piece of plastic right through the middle of the light which is what I think is taking a lot of that brightness away. If you press the SteelSeries key it will change the F9 – F12 to red. Which are used for switching profile, on the fly macro, and brightness down and up. They keyboard itself also has no LED other than the key. Which means when Caps or Num Lock are on it will change they key LED color to notify you if it is on or not.

    CONCLUSION:

    This keyboard for its price is fantastic. You can find other keyboards around this same price, but they won’t give you all the features this one does. You have hybrid mechanical keys, full RGB lighting, can create different profiles, can create on the fly macros, and can fully adjust what each key does on the keyboard which is then saved to onboard memory. It also comes with a wrist rest and is made of aluminum which means it isn’t going to break easily. If you need a new keyboard this should be among the considerations.

    HYBRID BLUE MECHANICAL GAMING SWITCHES:

    *This is a high-level overview.

    This combines two common key switches:

    1. Membrane Switch. Which is soft, squishy, long travel time, and quiet. Cheap to make, wears out faster, not as accurate.

    2. Blue Switch. Which has a tactile bump felt when typing, with an audible “click” per press, shorter travel time, and loud. More expensive, lasts longer, more accurate.

    3. This leads to a hybrid mix. Leading to a key that takes

    a. 50 grams of actuation force,

    b. with a total travel of 4 mm,

    c. actuation point of 2 mm,

    d. with a lifespan of 20 million keypresses.

    4. A normal Cherry MX Blue switch is clickly/tactile,

    a. requires 60 grams of actuation force,

    b. with total travel of 4 mm,

    c. actuation point of 2 mm,

    d. and lifespan of 50 million keypresses.

    5. So, enough of the fancy talk. What does that mean? That you are getting a switch that feels almost exactly like a Blue Switch but just doesn’t last as long and isn’t quite as accurate, but you are saving money doing it.

    Excellent RGB Gaming Keyboard

    The SteelSeries - Apex 5 Wired Gaming Hybrid Mechanical Blue Switch Keyboard with RGB Back Lighting is a pleasure to use. The aluminum body gives the keyboard a nice heavy weight and sturdy premium feel. I've had no trouble with it moving around the desk while using it, unlike some of the lighter plastic keyboards I've used. The quality construction is consistent in all aspects including the body, keys, switches, underside feet, and the incredible customization software that is available for the keyboard on the Steel Series website. The magnetically detachable wrist rest is quite comfortable and has a satin finish feel to it. It also has a nice weight and quality feel to it. The magenetic bond is good and it even stays connected when I lift the keyboard off the desk. No issues with it moving around or coming detached while typing. It is prone to picking up anything oily on your hands, as I figured out after using some hand lotion, but I was able to wipe it down and remove most of the are where my palm had been resting. It might be pretty hard to keep this looking pristine over time, if that's something that concerns you.

    The hybrid switches in the keys provides a good amount of bounce and resistance to the keys, which is very nice. Some mechanical keyboards have very little resistance and it feels very strange after working on membrane keyboards for so many years now. I prefer this hybrid feel that gives the mechanical clicking satisfaction but has some of the membrane feel so I'm not accidentally pressing keys when my fingers are resting on them.

    Where this keyboard really shines in my opinion is the innovative reactive RGB effects that have to be seen to appreciate, and incredible customization software for fine tuning all aspects of the keyboard from key bindings to macro creation and editing to RGB effects. The reactive effects are something I have not seen on any of the other RGB gaming keyboards I've used, and are quite fun to experience and play with. When you press a key, the lights react to each key press, so you end up with a lightshow of colors flowing out from your fingers as you type. It's pretty darn cool! This can also be toned down so that only each key reacts to where it's just adjusting the lighting of an individual key and not creating wave patterns of colors moving across the keyboard. So, whatever you prefer for effects, this keyboard can provide!

    The macro editor is pretty slick too! They keyboard allows you to record on-the-fly macros by pressing the Steel Series function key and the macro record key for 3 seconds, and then turn off recording with the same combination when finished. This is great, but the real power is when you open the macro editor and see your macro vizualised in a UI editor that lets you adjust everything down to the millisecond for delays, mouse clicks, key presses and it's presented in a visual layout that's really easy to see exactly what is happening. Very impressed with this software. It's very polished, and quite nice for keyboard software I have to say!

    One thing to note: The keys are quite loud so this is definitely not for a place you need to keey the clicking sounds down :) But, I would say most people wanting a mechanical keyboard are well aware of the clicking sounds and are seeking that out, so just something to be aware of. It's got some click!! :)

    The keyboard also has a nice little display and control scroll wheel that allows you to cycle through the keyboard settings even when you don't have the software running on your desktop, which is quite nice! You can switch between profiles, adjust the illumination settings, change the lighting timeout, save new profiles. When not in setting edit mode, the scroll wheel and control button allow you to do some multimedia control like pause/play music or video and adjust the volume up or down, mute the sound, skip forward and back. This is a pretty handy feature that not all keyboards have, especially as a convenient scroll wheel setup. There is also an image editor in the Steel Series software that lets you customize the image that displays in the little lcd display window on the keyboard. I thought this was a nice touch.

    Oh, another very cool thing about this keyboard is the app platform that the software allows for. It's open for people to develop their own apps, so the list of available apps will most definitely be growing over time. Currently there are about 20 apps available. One app lets you turn the keyboard instantly into an RGB spectrum analyzer to the music / sound playing through your PC, another one integrates with Discord and lets you customize effects that happen when events in Discord happen. There is a Minecraft app, DOTA 2, CS GO, MK 11, Neverwinter, and several other games. Will be nice to see more games added to the list. You can also sync your lighting across multiple Steel Series devices using the PRISMSYNC app, and put animated GIF's so the play across the keyboard lighting using the IMAGESYNC app, or create your own! There is an app slot that takes you right to the Techblog site that has all the information for creating your own apps, if that's something you are interested in.

    The Library section of the Steel Series Engine software scans your game library and then allows you to pick or customize a profile for each game for each Steel Series device you are using. The options are limitless!

    So, overall I'm quite impressed with this keyboard! It's attention to detail and quality are quite nice, and the price is excellent! I've paid way more for other manufacturers keyboards that offer way less than this keyboard.

    Excellent job, Steel Series!

    Amazing feel, amazing value

    If I had to sum up this review in one sentence, it is that at 100 dollars, this keyboard comes jam-packed with features and quality that make it a supremely good choice for anyone looking for a new keyboard! I will be happy to explain why I feel this is true though!

    Here is what I think you need to know before you make a purchasing decision:

    -The hybrid-mechanical blue (clicky) switches feel and sound amazing. I have a fair bit of experience with keyboards, and I would say the discernable difference of feel between this and a regular keyboard is that there is perhaps a bit softer of a bump at the bottom of the keystroke. I can type on this keyboard as fast as I can with any of my keyboards and I love how it feels. It is a genuine mechanical switch and cap as well, so you can replace these caps with most compatible Cherry MX keycaps.

    -The material used is great. The caps do not feel cheap at all, I like the bold, large font, and the frame is made of aluminum! It may not be the brushed aluminum of higher-end keyboards like my Logitech G513, but it still looks and feels like high-quality material.

    -Individual RGB programmable keys using the Steelseries Engine software. The thing I love about these keys, and I must emphasize, is that the secondary key functions are lit up as well! That means in the dark, unlike a lot of traditional big-name mechanical keyboards, you can actually see the secondary functions like the asterisk symbol, semicolon, etc. that you may not have memorized if you are an average typist. This is a huge deal to me and I want to make sure people know this.

    -The OLED screen is actually pretty fun! I downloaded some GIFs off of the internet to experiment with and sure enough, through the Steelseries engine software, you get to upload compatible GIFs and see them displayed on your keyboard's little OLED screen; that is kind of fun and the status updates and Discord connection that are forthcoming should be cool too!

    -This has a dedicated volume scroll wheel and button that acts as a play/pause button or whatever you would prefer to program either as. Having dedicated multimedia buttons at this price point is awesome, especially considering that many higher-end keyboards from competitors don't even included this at a much higher cost!

    Overall I am super happy with this keyboard. I will say that they are apparently updating the Steelseries Engine 3 software and boy, does it need it. It is functional and smooth, but there are only a fraction of the amount of customizable patterns available for the RGB that other companies like Razer and Logitech have. The only room for improvements for the keyboard itself I can think of like USB-A passthrough and a braided USB cable would launch this out of the awesome price-point this is at. If you can afford to build a $1000 dollar PC, you can afford to purchase a $100 dollar keyboard to compliment it. Remember that PCs are like cars. You can have a really souped-up engine, but if the tires suck, it ruins the ride. If your mouse and keyboard suck, then the PC is just not going to feel right. Spend some money and get something awesome like this Apex 5!

    The Bold, Beautiful, and Clicky, Clicky, Clicky

    SteelSeries has made an awesome gaming keyboard for anyone who is into gaming. So far I've been using the Apex for the better part of 3 days stuck in the house. The features here are outstanding while making your setup look as striking as it can be with RGB. There is a super satisfying click between each key and gives you fantastic responses.

    Apex feels nice with the coating on the keyboard which each key feels great when playing Doom Eternal. The Keyboard well-constructed with a great amount of heft to it. The weight of this board feels nice for a change from using plastic keyboards for so long. The frame is Aluminum alloy gives it a very bold looking style and the best I saw among them. The soft-touch keys feel great to the fingertips; tactile feedback is superior.

    The magnetic wrist rest fits on easy and feels just nice on the wrist when typing or using. 3-way cable routing is made under the keyboard which is great for any side of the table you got your keyboard on. The RGB lights are perhaps the brightest I've seen on a keyboard I've own. They really do look nice with many different light profiles to light up your gaming space. Yes, this is one of the best features of the keyboard. The RGBs are just nice and bright with many colors to make your own or patterns of colors. It's overwhelming honestly but that just means you have more to customize which is always a good thing.

    Another feature you might be interested in is the awesome mini OLED Display. OLED screen is there for you to change settings on the fly and as well as media controls. SteelSeries Engine 3 is the software you need to make use of the keybindings, illumination, and OLED settings like put a gif or image for the OLED screen. Here you can also turn on "Apps" for the keyboard.

    You can have Discord show different notifications on the OLED, an Audio visualizer that turns your keyboard...into visualizer. ImageSync which is the best app on here that lets you make your own 8-16 bit image across the keyboard. (Think about something like Ryu's Fireball from Street Fighter II going across the keyboard.), Tidal which displays the songs on the OLED. There are many more "Apps" for the keyboard and so far they all been fun to use.

    To me, The SteelSeries Apex 5 is one of the best ones I've used in a while. I wish there were more physical media keys but the 2 on the keyboard near the OLED is just fine. I also want more integration with games. MK 11 and CS:GO has great integration with the keyboard but we need more. I'll like to see DOOM Eternal as when you take damage your keyboard turns red. Overall though I love it and this is indeed going to stay part of my setup. 5/5

    Just Buy It

    I’m an avid mechanical keyboard user – both at work and in gaming – the SteelSeries Apex 5 if something magical.

    The price point is a bit mind boggling after getting to spend some time with the Apex 5. The design is top notch – right off the bat I fell in love with the magnetic wrist rest. It’s comfortable and sturdy and makes for an excellent feature. The construction overall is solid. It feels well-made and solid. The keys have a nice shape, feel great and the LEDs shine through with excellence. The programable OLED display is a nice little touch, along with the volume roller/mute button and play/pause/media control button.

    Let’s get to the best part – the switches. Let’s just get this out of the way. Do I like a keyboard with high end mechanical lubed switches and custom key caps better? Yes, would that also cost me over $350… yes. The insane value in this build is truly incredible. The switches do a decent job emulating a cherry blue switch – albeit, with a slightly lower operating force. Let’s cut to the chase, if you are in the market for an affordable gaming keyboard, with style and is a true pleasure to type and game on.

    Let’s talk about complaints, I do wish the USB cable was removable. The cable is easily routed in a multitude of ways, and that generally worked for me. The gripe is that the key switches are bonkers loud. It doesn’t really bother me, but I can’t say the same for wife.

    Conclusion – buy this keyboard.

    A nice midrange keyboard.

    This is my first mechanical keyboard. I am not a heavy PC gamer. But I do have a few choice games I will play on the pc versus my console.

    I’ve decided to download call of duty warzone on pc so I can hit higher refresh rates. I’ve gotten used to the keyboard layout quickly. Being that this keyboard is very clicky and responsive. High raised buttons plus the included wrist rest make this SteelSeries keyboard a benefit at a reasonable price point. Very well built. Cable management is a nice added feature as well. (It’s the little things)

    Now as far as lighting goes. This was probably the biggest selling point for a lot of people I’m assuming. Aside from the gaming aspect right, but let’s be honest. These RGB keyboards are beautiful. Adds style to your set ups. I love the presets alone. People comment on the lighting effects more than how it games. But games great I tell them too. And looks beautiful. Changing the settings is easy as many have mentioned. With the included oled screen.

    If you have been eyeing this or any of the SteelSeries keyboards. Just get an apex. You will not be disappointed.

    I love playing with this and honestly just looking at it.

    A very solid product from a very reputable manufacturer.

    Good luck!

    Loud and extremely enjoyable typing experience.

    I have been working and gaming on mechanical keyboards for a very long time. So, I was curious as to what would be the experience in this new APEX 5 “hybrid” mechanical keyboard from Steelseries.

    Immediately upon taking the keyboard out of the box, I was impressed with the quality and build. It feels like a premium product. This is a full-size keyboard, meaning that all keys are available including a Numpad and full row of function keys. The faceplate body is made of aluminum alloy, and the bottom is made of hard plastic. It weighs a bit above 2 lbs. The edges are kept at a minimum which makes it look smaller than it actually is. There are foot grips underneath to keep it in place which raises the keyboard quite a bit. The USB cable is attached to the keyboard and is rather long and thick. I am not too crazy about thick cables, but the good thing is that the underside of the keyboard has three paths to route the excess cable for a cleaner setup. It also comes with a rubber-like wrist rest that attaches to the keyboard magnetically. It is secure and fits flush at the bottom. At first, it feels a bit cumbersome as it is kind of stiff. However, one can get used to it quickly and not mind -or one can opt to use a wrist rest of your linking.

    The Apex 5 features a customizable metal textured wheel rocker at the upper right side which controls sound volume and mute functions. I really love this as I do not like controlling sound via software or with a headset. There is also an illuminated button that controls media functions such as play, pause, skip back and forth, etc. (sort of like a headset in-line mic controller). A really cool feature is the customizable smart display on the upper right side. It can be customized with the Steelseries downloadable software to add cool info like PC temps, GIF, and logos. All settings, profiles, and macros can be set or changed with these feature keys in conjunction or with dedicated keys on the keyboard.

    Speaking of features, this keyboard has a full array of RGB lighting options. The colors, which can be adjusted per-key via software or the rocker/settings button, are vibrant and bright. Because the keys are elevated, the lights “splash” a bit and can make it look a bit messy at its highest setting -but that’s just a small observation.

    Obviously the most important factor in a keyboard is the typing experience. In this, I have nothing but praise for the APEX 5. This keyboard features “hybrid” blue switch keys. That means that they are very clicky, and they have a tactile response with a loud clack sound for every stroke. That makes them very loud, which should be considered if you work or play in a quiet environment and/or at night. Also, they can absolutely be heard in online conversations even when using a noise reduction mic. Also, the keys are elevated, which allows dust and grime to accumulate more quickly and must be cleaned often.

    Having said that, I must strongly convey that typing on this keyboard is an absolute joy. The keys feel great and are extremely responsive and allow for precision while typing or gaming. The keys are very secure, do not wobble, and are not slippery. They are also very well-spaced which prevents next-key misses. I found myself typing even faster than usual and it seemed (to me) that I had better reflexes and responses, especially while playing FPS games.

    Despite all of the small issues, such as the loose RGB lighting, incredibly noisy keys, and the need to constantly clean underneath them, the Steeleseries APEX 5 comes highly recommended because of unique features such as the LCD mini-display, the multi-media controls, and the awesome typing experience -all at a great price.

    Loud, Well Designed Keyboard with Unique Features

    SETUP

    Windows set-up and driver installation went without issue. Windows 10 immediately recognized the device and downloaded the appropriate drivers. In order to take full advantage and unlock the options offered with the keyboard, the Steel Series Engine 3 must be installed. I am happy to report that the software installed without issue.

    USE

    The keyboard has a very nice heft to it. The body itself is machined out of solid aluminum and is quite substantial. Steel put a great deal of effort into the build quality and materials used. Even the two elevator tabs underneath feel well designed with a thoughtful rubber coating that helps keep the keyboard from sliding while being used. It’s the small, thoughtful touches like that, that makes the keyboard feel like a nice, cohesively designed item.

    Like others have said, this is a LOUD keyboard. Louder than my other mechanical gaming keyboards. Honestly, I’m quite surprised at how loud the keys are, considering they don’t have true mechanical switches like the others. This keyboard uses a “hybrid” style switch that combines a mechanical and membrane key. I will admit that I was skeptical of the “hybrid” switch. But they do feel smoother than a true mechanical switch, especially while typing.

    The keyboard is fully customizable with the Steel Series Engine 3 software. The back-lighting supports the usual 16.7 million colors and as with most all premium keyboards, the lighting is mappable on a per key basis. To me, this is a must have feature for keyboards. I like to program buttons like Num Lock a different color than the others, even when the software is playing motion effects or cycling through colors, etc.

    In the upper right-hand corner is a little, OLED display that has a limited ability to display various details. The display can be customized to be an In-Game HUD, display custom gifs, display DisCord messages, Tidal track information, and be used to adjust and customize the keyboard illumination and settings. While I admit, I do kinda geek-out with it, it is of limited value to me. The resolution is a low 128 x 40 pixels, so finding something compatible with that low of a resolution is difficult. I wish the manufacturer would incorporate more compatibility into the display. It would be nice if you could display information from Spotify, Amazon Music, and even iTunes.

    The keyboard does away with traditional multimedia specific buttons, replacing it with a scroll wheel and a menu button. The thought of losing dedicated multimedia keys was an initial turn off, but after using the menu button and scroll wheel together, it is starting to grow on me. Eliminating the multiple multimedia buttons saves space and allows for neat features like the cool little OLED display.

    FINAL THOUGHTS

    This feels to be a very well-made product. The “hybrid” keys are innovative and do offer a noticeable change from true mechanical keys. Whether or not the feel will appeal to you is always a matter of preference, but I like the fact there is yet another option on the market to choose from.

    As with all products, nothing is ever truly perfect. Some are closer than others. My biggest complaint of this keyboard is the washed-out and somewhat dim looking colors on the keys. I attempted to capture with the attached photo, but it doesn't really illustrate my point. I have mechanical keyboards from other manufacturers and the colors from these keyboards seem to be much more vibrant and dynamic. Again, this does not diminish the functionality of the keyboard in any way, it is 100% just a matter of personal preference.

    Aside from the lighting, I can’t find much to knock about this keyboard. It does its job well and has some very innovative features, not found on others’ products. The “hybrid” keys feel very smooth, yet still provide that satisfying mechanical click that we all know and love.

    A good product.

    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.

    Fantastic if it matches your needs

    I’m a big fan of Logitech’s MX series. I have the full-sized MX Keyboard and both the MX Anywhere and the MX Pro mouse. They are my go-to devices for both desktop and laptop use. This “mini” version is just what it says, a small version of the full MX keyboard with a few significant changes.

    What hasn’t changed is the excellent feel and quality build. It has the same key action which is my favorite. It also has the MX series ability to pair with up to three devices and switch between them at the touch of the dedicated 1/2/3 keys. It also can use the Logitech Flow system to drag and drop things between those devices. As with the full-sized version, the keyboard lights come on only when your hands are in proximity thus conserving battery. Depending on how bright you set things, the internal rechargeable battery life is anywhere from 10 days to several months. It charges with the included USB C to A cable from any source.

    The alpha keys are full size, so it gets its diminutive size by omitting the Numpad and a few other keys. There are also differences in its pairing ability. The previous MX devices could pair with the ubiquitous Logitech Unifying Receiver dongle or directly via Bluetooth. This new device supports Bluetooth but does not support the Unifying dongle. It can pair the newer Logitech Bolt dongle. However, they did not include one, and they are an additional $20. Be aware that none of your existing Logitech products can use the Bolt since it’s not backward compatible. Considering I have other MX products, that’s a notable issue. There are also some new dedicated F-key functions … dictation, emojis, and mic mute. To get these you give up a few … task view, action center, show/hide desktop, previous track, next track, calculator, and app menu. It does have the basic arrow keys, but missing along with the num-key section are some important navigation keys … insert, home, end, page up, and page down.

    The mini is marketed as a “creator’s keyboard”, so it’s up to you to decide if the keys added compensate for those removed. The touch and feel are superb. The build is top quality. The battery life is great. The size is definitely small. If the key selection meets your needs and the smaller size is a plus, you’ll love it, and I recommend it with those qualifications.

    Awesome keyboard

    Exactly what I was looking for. I need a keyboard that is compatible with my personal MacBook Pro and my work HP Probook. This keyboard allows me to seamlessly switch between the two without having to mess with the bluetooth settings each time. It's just the push of a key to designate which machine I want to type on (up to three can be pre-set, so I also added my iPad). Keys have a good amount of bounce. I got the mini and I love that it takes up a minimal amount of space on my desk, but for those who want the full size keyboard, those are available, too. Very happy with my purchase. The only complaint I have is the instructions included in the box were pretty lacking/non-existent. I'm wondering if there are features I don't know about.

    Performance Comfortable Mini MX keyboard for creat

    Logi MX keys Mini is minimalist 70% form factor wireless illuminated keyboard intended to take anywhere on the go or for minimizing desk space and targeted for everyday productivity. It takes less space on your desk and looks awesome when paired with MX master3 and MX speakers(see pic).

    Unboxing and What’s included: In the box, MX Mini keyboard, USB C to A cable for charging in box with safety, compliance, and warranty info papers.

    Keyboard’s minimalistic design is excellent with 75% ergonomic form factor and measures 11.65 x 5.19x 0.82 inches and weighs around 506 grams.

    Setup is simple. It does not come with the new compatible Logi Bolt receiver that was released recently and this keyboard will not pair or work with unifying receiver. So, if you are planning to purchase this to use with your unifying receiver you are out of luck and may need to purchase the new Bolt USB receiver. Connection via Bluetooth is simple and uses Bluetooth low energy and is compatible with windows 10 or Mac or iOS or iPad OS or Android OS. Just go the settings and search for available nearby devices after turning the switch on and select the MX keys mini to get connected. You can connect max of 3 devices and switch between them with the tap of the easy switch keys located on the top row. Very seamless and fluid switching between devices once configured and connected.

    To connect different devices after connecting one device, press and hold the another easy-switch buttons on top for few seconds until it blinks to complete the setup process for other device. Once configured, just with the tap of the easy switch keys you can navigate to different devices. For my setup, I have my work laptop and personal gaming laptop connected to the Samsung 49-inch G9 monitor on a sit stand desk and this new mini keyboard paired with MX Master 3 works great for productivity.

    You can customize this keyboard with various functions by downloading the Logitech options software and setup functions keys and setup voice to text dictation. By default, the first row of 3 keys is assigned with easy switch keys to switch to various devices (1 to 3), decreasing /increasing brightness for backlighting for keyboard, dictation and emoji keys, screen capture keys, mic off keys and multimedia keys (play/pause, volume mute, volume decrease, volume increase). All these keys can be easy switched between Fn keys by pressing Fn+Esc and all this without holding the Fn button.

    Keystroke is perfect with the keys shaped for fingertips and is very comfortable ergonomically. Batteries will last up to 10 days on a full charge, and it again depends on the usage and the backlight brightness. If you need more than few months of battery life, suggest turning off the backlighting in the logi options software or reduce the brightness to save battery.

    This mini MX keys will definitely save desk space and when paired with MX Master 3 it can switch and operate multiple computers on the same network seamless using the Logitech flow software.

    Overall, if you are looking for a productive, compact (space saving), performance, comfortable, portable (easy to take anywhere you go), wireless, multi device connection keyboard without losing the full keyboard functions and have no need for dedicated number pad then this is the keyboard for you and won’t regret the purchase.

    Stylish Performer

    ---- Summary ----

    Pros:

    - Exceptional gaming performance

    - Stylish and compact design

    - Highly customizable lighting

    - Feels durable and sturdy

    - Detachable, braided USB cable

    - Dedicated volume control dial and mute button

    Cons:

    - Keys feel a bit too small for typing

    - No wrist rest

    ---- Review ----

    Design:

    With its compact tenkeyless (TKL) and low-profile design valuable desk space is freed up, yet the Vulcan TKL Pro makes a statement. Its build quality is admirable, and I like the look of matte black keys with a brushed aluminum backplate. The braided USB cable, mute button, and volume control dial are nice touches that are subtle but appreciated. The stylish design is further enhanced by the numerous key illumination settings that can be customized in the ROCCAT Swarm app. More on that later. Although I wouldn’t describe the Vulcan TKL Pro keyboard as ergonomic, its low-profile does make typing on it somewhat comfortable for short periods of time. However, if you’re doing a lot of typing, I wouldn’t recommend it as a daily driver. I think the main reasons I don’t enjoy the typing experience is the lack of a wrist rest and the somewhat small key size. There’s a fair amount of space between the keys, so I wish some of that space was utilized for a larger key size, and a detachable wrist rest would’ve been a nice add on to this great keyboard. With that said, I recognize the Vulcan TKL Pro is designed for gaming, so I didn’t feel that these typing related drawbacks should significantly affect my rating. I’m happy to report that gaming on it is a fantastic experience, and I have no complaints about the design in that regard. If your priority is typing effectively and comfortably, I wouldn’t recommend this keyboard, but if your priority is gaming performance, look no further.

    Gaming Performance:

    ROCCAT’s “Titan Switch Optical” delivers impressive responsiveness. I’ve used the keyboard while playing several different games, and each keystroke is always recognized without delay. There’s no “ghosting” either. I’m a fan of the sturdy, mechanical feel, and I think the level of performance is as advertised. Extensive use and long gaming sessions are no problem for this durable keyboard. My gaming performance may waver, but the Vulcan TKL Pro’s does not. Based on my positive experience using this keyboard, I trust that each keystroke will deliver a lightning-fast response, and that’s exactly what I look for in a gaming keyboard.

    Customization:

    All the customization options for the Vulcan TKL Pro reside in the ROCCAT Swarm app. It’s a quick download from ROCCAT’s website, and I had no issues installing the app or the recommended keyboard driver update. The key illumination options are extensive. There are several color themes to choose from that can be applied to the entire keyboard or specific keys, or you can fine-tune the color scheme using RGB number codes. Additionally, there are several lighting patterns/effects, and these can be customized for the entire keyboard or specific keys as well. The Vulcan TKL Pro also features AIMO intelligent lighting, which unifies AIMO-compatible devices and allows lighting effects to “jump” across devices. I wish I could test this feature out, but the Vulcan TKL Pro is the only compatible device that I have so far. Nonetheless, I like that the extensive lighting customization options allow me to make the keyboard look exactly how I want it. Other customization options include key assignments, character repeat, and sound feedback. These all work as designed, but I personally don’t like the sound feedback, which plays customizable sounds through your computer speakers upon pressing a key. The reason I don’t like it is the slight delay between keystroke and sound feedback. I prefer the natural sound that the keyboard itself makes. Overall, when it comes to customization options, there’s nothing more I could ask for.

    Verdict:

    Gaming on the Vulcan TKL Pro is fantastic, and it looks stunning. From aesthetic to performance, it’s easy to see that a lot of thought went into the design and engineering of this keyboard. I think it’s just shy of a five-star product due to the keys being a bit too small for typing and the lack of a wrist rest. However, there’s no doubt in my mind that the Vulcan TKL Pro is a contender for one of the best gaming keyboards on the market. If gaming performance is your priority, get this keyboard, but if typing effectively and comfortably is a dealbreaker for you, look into other options. Keyboard preferences vary from person to person, so if you can get your hands on one at a store before purchasing, that may help you make the decision.

    LOVE HOW IT LOOKS – GREAT FOR GAMING

    REVIEW: ROCCAT® VULCAN TKL PRO COMPACT OPTICAL RGB GAMING KEYBOARD

    Best Buy Tech Insider Network

    LOVE HOW IT LOOKS – GREAT FOR GAMING

    Perfect ascetic design. All in all, it is a very good keyboard and worthy of a test run for your gaming rig. Even my wife (who generally cares less about my computing gadgets) thought it looked cool and wanted it for her computer. I love the compact design and footprint (see pic to see how much smaller than my full size office keyboard). I love the analog control knob for volume. You can customize the colors to be / do just about whatever you want. The software is a lot more user friendly than another leading LED gaming keyboard. The inclusion of Arrow and Page keys is brilliant vs a full numeric keypad.

    FAVORITE FEATURES

    - Attractive Small Footprint

    - Full Stroke Keys with strong resistance

    - Arrow and Page Keys

    - Full Control of all keys for unique colors

    - Analog Volume Control

    - Dedicated Function Keys (sometimes not found on small keyboards)

    - Detachable USB-C cable. Such a good but simple idea

    SETUP:

    We temporarily went off the rails here. Before any testing, I always update to the latest drives and firmware. On the first installation of the SWARM software, the installer crashed. I rebooted and tried again, this time the installation completed, but it would start SWARM. Even after uninstalling and reinstalling it still would not work (SWARM would not load). I found a forum that said you needed to manually delete the directory where it installs and then try again. This time it worked. Once I fired up SWARM it found the keyboard and updated the firmware. So we are off and running.

    As mentioned, customizing the lighting was super easy with “predefined groups” of keys like “function”, “arrow” and so on. Once I had the keys and effects to my liking, I saved them to my default profile and selected “auto configure”. Now when I boot up, it loads my profile and assigns the right colors to the keys.

    Here is my pet peeve with LED keyboards. I HATE RAINBOW PATTERNS. I don’t want to see them ever. When the computer is booting, I have to wait until windows is loaded before the RAINBOW stops. Also, when the computer goes into screen saver mode the keyboard goes back into RAINBOW mode. I will allow that I might not be doing something correctly, but WHY WHY WHY won’t it save the default profile in the keyboard and leave it alone. Almost all but the most expensive LED keyboards have this behavior, so this is not taking away from the ROCCAT, I just wish it had this feature. (no points removed from review)

    USING THE KEYBOARD and FEATURES

    As for gaming, I tested this on Doom and Battlefront II. It worked great, I had no errors or misfires or ghosting.

    Again it a gaming keyboard, first and foremost and it does a great job in the respect. I think it keeps up with mechanical keyboards costing nearly 2X. I can highly recommend this for Gaming.

    I had strong hopes to use this as my everyday keyboard, but I can’t. Keeping in mind keyboards are a personal preference as well as muscle memory. The keys are (or seem) smaller than normal full size keys. There is room for larger keys, but instead they chose wider separation between keys (more air gaps). As a touch typist, I could not get use the smaller keys. I also found that for a “fast” keyboard, I was constantly missing letters as I typed. This could be because the keypress is pretty firm, or the small keys I’m not sure. It seemed that about every 4th letter it missed what I typed. My other “gaming” keyboard is full on mechanical (not simulated) and I’ve never had the issue of missing letters. I could probably get used to it, but I did not take to it right away.

    The other feature I tried but quickly disabled was the digital sound effect for key clicks. It is a great idea, but the effects could not keep up with my typing and it was throwing me off. The effect would occur a fraction after I pressed the key. In the end, it was just noise for the sake of noise. A tiny speaking in the keyboard would have been better assuming it was faster at making the noise closer to the keypress.

    OVERALL RECOMMENDATION

    I think it is a great keyboard, well made, with good software and granular control over lights. For gaming, you would have a hard time finding a better keyboard at this price. If you want mixed use keyboard, and are a strong typist, you might have to look at different units.

    For keyboards, speakers, and monitors, you really need to test these hands on.

    ROCCAT who??—Exceptional gaming peripherals

    Overview—So let's be frank, before getting my hands on the Roccat Vulkan TKL Pro I wasn’t even aware Roccat was a thing. Later after doing a little research I learned it is a name from Turtle Beach, a name I’ve come to love for their headsets. Fast forward to review day, I learned Turtle Beach had acquired Roccat in mid 2019—knowing that really helped me understand the why’s to my ignorance.

    Anyway, the Vulkan TKL Pro is a heavily geared gaming keyboard, with it’s numeric keypad out of the picture for better mouse movement space. Beautiful, permanent, keycaps and dust proof key base. RGB backlit keys with a wide array of color choices/lighting patterns. It makes for a great gaming keyboard. Just be aware that the software side of things is a bit wonky, which I’ll cover further below. It 100% works flawlessly but configuring things is more complicated than it should be.

    Design—It’s brushed aluminum faceplate is a beautiful addition to the keyboard. The keycaps have a contrasting appearance from the faceplate making them slightly easier to see in an overly bright desk environment. The USB-A to Type-C is a braided but sturdy cable measuring roughly 5.5’. With a weight of 1lb 6.6oz it comes in as a very light, but sturdy keyboard.

    One thing I’d really like to point out that I am not a fan of. The volume and media controls could have had better placement. For one, the volume is a knob which reminds me of a Dj’s mixer more than anything. It feels out of place going from key presses during a game to lifting your entire hand off the keyboard to adjust the volume. A series of 6 buttons in the upper corner would have been a better option for me. It allows for the use of the index, middle, or ring finger over the thumb to control volume.

    Performance—The optical switches are quick and responsive, which makes great for gaming. However, I see that the key switches have a slight delay of about ⅛” before a keypress is registered. It isn’t bad, in my use case of typing, this is a benefit rather than an issue. Nor for gaming do I feel bogged down between keypresses. This goes for FPS, RPG, and platformers. It’s smaller frame makes for better placement on both desk and from yo9ur hands for more intense pvp matches. The last point I;d like to mention is that several of the FN (Function) shortcuts tend to have a delay. This most likely ties into the software aspect of things but do wish to point that out here.

    Software—So finally, the area I’ve had the most issues with. For starters, the swarm software features a rather un-intuitive interface. Mapping keystrokes for example, and other shortcuts have yielded little progress. You drag & drop and apply your settings, execute your keystrokes and get nothing. Only a specific set of keystrokes have worked for me and others, well no. The sound effects are a nice novelty addition. For the entire time of ownership I’ve used the clicking sound that triggers every time you press a key on the keyboard. Do note, only the Roccat keyboard will trigger a click. If you have more than 1 keyboard plugged in as I do your other keyboard will not trigger any click. Last but not least, most looking into these types of keyboards want that cool looking RGB functionality. Want pulsing light to flash across the keyboard? You got it! Next you want all blue keys permanently lit? You got it! Next you want a custom set of rules to flash your keys in a certain pattern using a specific set of colors? You don’t got it!!!

    The RGB customizations aren’t endless with Roccat’s Swarm software. There is a very low ceiling here. The presets are a little better as far as customizations. The only preset locked into being just that is the “Snake” preset which doesn’t allow any customization options other than speed. I’ve found that the default AIMO Intelligent Lighting preset is the best preset I like, everything else fells rather lacking.

    Conclusion—This was a tough one to weigh out and would definitely be a 5 star product. All-in-all, the Roccat Vulcan TKL Pro is a great gaming keyboard if you can get past the lack of customization options in your layout as everything else regarding the keyboard is of stellar quality. Software may see future updates which can potentially make your keyboard into an amazing piece of gaming gear.

    NOTE—Tested on both Windows 7 & Windows 10

    Wonderful hardware, but useless software

    Note: I purchased the wrist rest separately elsewhere

    I loved the keyboard itself, but I ended up replacing it for reasons I’ll cover in the Cons below.

    PROS

    - Incredibly buttery smooth switches and stabilizers. I’m not sure if they’re factory lubed or something, but I would bet money that you won’t find any non-custom keyboard with keys that feel this frictionless.

    - Beautiful keyboard in-person. However, you’ll see hotspots out of the corners of your eyes if you shift around in your seat too much, since there’s nothing diffusing the LEDs on the switches, and they’re mostly exposed.

    - Very vivid RGB.

    CONS

    - The software is extremely limited in what kind of control it allows you to have over the board. You can’t actually remap anything. You can change what some of the keys do when “Game Mode” is enabled in the sense that you can disable the key during Game Mode. You can also change the Caps Lock to function as “Easy Shift”, which is just Roccat’s version of something like Hyper Shift or G Shift. Holding this key down allows you to have access to alternate keys for part of the board, but only letter keys, and only as far over as the F key for some reason (So, QWERT, ASDF, ZXC. I don’t remember if V, G, and T are included or not, but I don’t think so.). They don’t let you change the Easy Shift functions of any other key. Actually, 1-5 might also be included, but I can’t remember. I was hoping I could remap my Caps Lock to something like CTRL, as I really didn’t find holding Easy-Shift (Caps Lock) down and pressing something like E as something that felt practical. When I first got the board, Easy Shift seemed to work across brands, and essentially holding it would activate Hyper Shift on my Razer MMO mouse, but they patched that out in any update for some reason, and it never worked again. This is a really terrible and convoluted solution to remapping keys.

    - The software felt like you bought a cheap knockoff keyboard at a premium price. It was super dated-looking and feeling.

    - The keys are a semi-glossy ABS, which shows natural hand oils very easily. I didn’t have the keyboard long enough for it to develop any permanent “shine”, or for any of the legends to wear off/down, so I can’t really confirm or deny anything to that nature. It’s not worth replacing the keys with normal PBT keycaps since it really ruins how good the switches underneath the keycaps feel (I tried it with some keycaps I had because I was curious). Roccat doesn’t seem to sell replacement keycaps for these Vulcan boards either as far as I could tell. They might be replaceable through your warranty, but they don’t give you any Avenue to get white keycaps for their TKL boards, for example (they don’t make a white version of the TKL keyboards for whatever reason).

    - Some like the volume knob, but I always felt like I was forcing myself to use it to justify its existence. Also, the keyboard’s backplate was metal, but the knob was a rigid plastic, and it felt kind of tacked on as a result.

    - The mute button that’s next to the volume knob can’t be remapped to anything else and didn’t really seem like something I wanted on the board after initially feeling like it would be nice to have. Also worth noting, after about a month of having it, i came over to my desk after a workout, but before getting a shower, and reached across the keyboard and I saw a single drop of sweat land on the mute button and got worried about it, but told myself there was no way it was enough to get down into the board, so it’ll be fine… Sure enough, the mute button would randomly toggle every once in a while and mute my sound periodically…

    I ended up replacing the keyboard mainly because I didn’t like that I wasn’t able to just remap keys (especially since I never use caps lock and that’s prime real estate when it comes to gaming). It felt like Roccat was actively limiting the usefulness of the board through the software. Eventually, I would have had to replace the keyboard regardless due to the issue with the mute button, but the missing ability to remap was the reason I chose to get a different brand entirely. Coincidentally, as it turns out, Logitech doesn’t let you remap their keyboards anymore either, so I returned that one and got a Corsair one, since they let you remap anything all the way down to the hardware level. Of note, if you care about remapping, Razer has onboard hardware profile storage and allows you to store most key remappings to the profiles, but the remaps don’t actually work without their software running in the background anyway… that’s a whole other topic though.

    Great gaming keyboard

    WOW! This is a pretty sweet keyboard! It's low profile, but the keys are tall so it doesn't feel too low. The volume is fast and easy mixer style knob and a mute button beside it. I really like the style. The keys have linear optical switches and it rates at 100 million stroke life cycle! That's pretty fantastic!!! The travel distance is super nice too with a very satisfying click with each touch and the keys just feel good. They are full size keys with decent spacing and doesn't feel crowded at all. It comes with a detachable USB-C cable if you're into custom cables. Oh, and this one is TKL: ten key less, giving more room for mouse movement. The really awesome lighting is AIMO intelligent so that it will sync with other devices that are AIMO compatible. The transparent switch housing makes the lighting on this keyboard gorgeous! The one downside I see with this keyboard: the oils on my fingers show on the keys a lot more than I would like. (No, I haven't eaten around my keyboard yet.) I love the closed off system so that it's easy to clean, just by tilting it to allow crumbs to slide right off (if you do eat while you game.) Overall This is a pretty solid keyboard and I'm very happy to have it.

    Premium in Every Sense of the Word

    This keyboard is amazing. As soon as I removed it from the box I was already impressed.

    Build quality is great. It’s a compact size so no number pad to the right like some larger keyboards provide, but there is plenty of space around the rest of the keyboard. It feels spacious and I never feel cramped when using this keyboard. It feels super premium and dense. The key travel is great, and each key has the same feel throughout. The RGB lights are nice and bright, but not blinding.

    It has some nice function keys on top to control music, and a great little dial to control volume levels. It took me a minute to get used to this keyboard since I was using a larger keyboard prior to this one, but now I wouldn’t go back to the other larger gaming keyboard I have. This one just feels so great to use. Plus, it takes up less real estate on my desk, which is a nice bonus.

    Really nice TKL wired keyboard.

    Nicely built. Medium weight. Not too plastic not too heavy.

    Keys stand up and looks really nice. Lights at the base of each key has clear plastic to show off LED lights nicely.

    Ran on window 10 with no problems.

    Used swarm software to customize light pattern, macros, delay time, sound feedback, etc is really cool...

    Swarm also has presets for certain games. And had my favorite Rainbow 6.

    Volume control is easy to use dial.

    Comes with everything needed to use.

    I would recommend this product.

    Gaming keyboard

    This keyboard is nice. The rgb is cool to mess with. The app for it is easy enough to use as well. The keys are noisy compared to mechanical switches. My headset blocks them out and no one can hear them through my mic so it’s a nonissue. The lack of ten key saves some desk space as well.

    Compact and reliable keyboard !!!

    I bought this keyboard for a work-from-home setup where my monitors take up the vast majority of the desk space. The nature of my job means that I NEED to have the numberpad on my keyboard, which ruled out most other compact keyboards. Some of the buttons, particularly the Home and Page Up and Down keys, are not where my fingers expect them to be, but the letters and numbers are right, and that's what matters.

    The first piece of advice I can give is to open the box correctly. I did not and it took me minutes to find that the receiver was in the box and not on the keyboard. LOL!

    Had a Logitech M510 wireless mouse. Had to download software to work with the unifying receiving. So, the wireless keyboard and mouse is connected with one unifying receiving taking up only one USB port that's a plus. This keyboard is comfortable to type on for extended periods. It is the best keyboard, no however it gets the job done.

    I was looking for an alternative keyboard for a stand-up desk that was a bit more compact in size. This works for that purpose very well. I still prefer a larger, more ergonomic keyboard for high volume typing. But for a situation that needs a compact size, this is great. I attached it to the desk with aluminum rails and Velcro. Works great!

    MK550 = bundle...K350 ergonomic board & mouse

    This board has been around for years. I thought I was getting newer version of it because it is advertised as MK550. It's actually a K350 and the mouse and when logitech bundles it the package is MK550. I had to call logitech because I thought i had been tricked with older version. However that is the model for the "package" the board and the wireless mouse. It isn't newer but the keys click better and at least the letters are all sharp and crisp. Some of the letters on my old board had worn off. Nothing fancy but I like the shape - hope this one lasts 7 years like my older version of the same model.

    Base of keyboard is uneven, causes to keyboard to wobble while typing. The layout is perfect for me so I did not return it. Instead, I put a cup coaster underneath one corner to keep it from wobbling.

    In the image, imagine a line running from the upper left to bottom right of the keyboard, this is the wobble pivot point. I put a coaster underneath the upper right (circled) to prevent the wobble.

    2nd Set

    My original set was purchased probably 8 years ago and it finally was time to replace since the keys were so worn the plastic was getting thin. Highly recommend this project. 8 flawless years is great and I'm sure this one will last just as long.

    Disappointed with the Dongle

    Hi,

    Its been 2 months snice I purchased this product.

    No problem with the keyboard or the mouse. I liked it all.

    What disappointed me is after 2 months of use I just unplugged the USB dongle for the first time to plug it in to my other laptop and i see only the cap in my hand. The receiver was in the laptop.

    i do not have the ease of reusing this because it does not come together now. I need to pull it out. I am afraid it might stop working if I do this regularly. This is disappointing.

    Works OK - BUT USB dongle is part of box!!!

    Once set up everything works as expected. Maybe not the best keyboard, but easy to adapt to.

    BUT- you'll not be be able to set up without the dongle, and that is inserted into one of the box flaps. If you open the box from the wrong side, you won't see it. And if you've tossed the box - w/the dongle- you're outta luck. TERRIBLE packaging design. Took a bunch of time retracing steps thinking I dropped it before I found it- after digging the box out of recycling.

    Worst part- there is a storage slot built into the mouse. But they choose to NOT use this.

    Great Combo!!

    Awesome set! After much research I decided to go with this keyboard-mouse combo and I couldn't be happier. Setup is an absolute snap. Pull out of box, plug in mini receiver into any USB port, flip keyboard/mouse switches to on and your good to go. You can even pair/unify and additional unifying mouse to this set for added comfort. Overall this is a fantastic set for anyone seeking the extra freedom of movement.

    The product was good.but I spent 1 hr to find the USB receiver which supposed to be inside the mous. But it was in side the box,near the side bad of the box. Terrible idea.

    Love it

    Love my keyboard. I am one to love hearing the clicking noises. If you don't like that then this is not for you. This keyboard works wonderful with a Mac computer. So far I have had it for a few weeks with no issues. I am hoping it stays that way.

    Great Keyboard/Mouse Combo!

    This is an excellent choice for someone looking for a quick and cheap solution. If you don't use your keyboard much I'd highly recommend this. If you are on your computer all day, you might consider something of better quality. The keys work and feel good but they could be better.
