    Let me start by saying that I’ve used the apple bluetooth keyboard for about three years now, and after much thought, I decided to give this keyboard a shot. The reason for the switch was due to a few annoyances with the Apple bluetooth keyboard. I was considering buying the Logitech K750, but when I heard that a newer model was coming out with some new features I decided to wait for it. Now that I’ve used it I’m definitely glad I waited. I’ll try to break down in detail some of the best features of the keyboard that I find most appealing.

    Easy Switching – In a nutshell, you can pair this keyboard to up to three devices at once, and switch between them with the click of a button. I only tested this with my Mac and my iPhone, but it was worked flawlessly so far. There’s a bluetooth button on the back of the keyboard that will let you choose which key you want to pair your device with, and once it’s paired you can go from typing on a computer to typing on your iPhone in about 7-8 seconds. With the Apple bluetooth keyboard it was a hassle switching between devices since you had to disconnect/reconnect each device if you wanted to switch. I don’t really have a reason to use a keyboard with my iPhone and I assume it would be much better with an iPad, but it is pretty neat having the ability to type on it if i wanted.

    Design – I was a bit skeptical about switching from Apple hardware to Logitech hardware. Let’s be honest, Apple makes very good looking products. The thing that i was most worried about was the fact that this keyboard was plastic. I liked the feel of the aluminum with the Apple keyboard, but after using this keyboard for about a week, I have to say that I don’t notice ANY difference in quality. This keyboard is built extremely well and feels very solid as you type. I find the keys to be a bit deeper than on the Apple keyboard, which I really like. The layout is identical to the Apple keyboard, except for a few buttons up top. There is now a mission control and launchpad button, as well as the three bluetooth buttons. Also, the screen brightness is moved to the F6 and F7 keys that were previously black on the Apple keyboard (they are used for the backlit keyboard brightness on most mac laptops).

    Solar Charging – I’ve only used this keyboard for 5-6 days so far, but ever since it was taken out of the packaging and paired up to the Logitech Control Center Software, the charge hasn’t dropped below 100%. If you’re thinking this keyboard requires direct sunlight to efficiently charge then you’re wrong. A small desk lamp or a slightly lit room is enough to keep it charged. My keyboard sits about 15 feet away from a window with closed curtains and it still manages to keep a charge. I would even imagine the backlight from a bright computer/tv screen might even charge the keyboard in a completely dark room. It seems this will solve the battery problem with the Apple keyboard, which was going though about 3 AA batteries a month.

    Now for a few negatives about this keyboard. Most of them are small nitpicks, that might not be a problem for most people but they still manage to annoy me.

    The first problem that I noticed was that the caps lock light doesn’t stay lit when you click it. When you turn caps lock on it will light up for 2 seconds and then turn back off. I’ve often found myself typing out a sentence or two before realizing it was on the whole time. (I should probably look up more when I type I guess lol).

    There is a few workarounds to this problem though. The Logitech Control Center Software has two options for caps lock. You can either have a small icon come up in the menu bar when the caps lock is on, or you can have notifications pop up on the screen, similar to the ones that would come up when you change the volume. I never really look up into the menu bar unless I’m checking the time, and I really don’t like the pop up notifications either, so I turned them both off, but I do appreciate the options. I don’t know how much the light would drain the battery if it were to stay on, and I assume that’s why logitech didn’t want it staying on, but oh well. I’ll deal with it.

    The other problems I noticed was that the mission control and launchpad buttons didn’t work out of the box. I was able to add a keyboard shortcut for the mission control key, but I can’t pair anything to the launchpad key at all. I looked up the problem on logitech’s website, and I still haven’t found a solution that worked.

    The last thing that annoys me about this keyboard is that there’s no previous/next keys. On the Apple keyboard they are on opposite sides of the play/pause button, but on this keyboard they aren’t there. I usually listen to music when I type papers and I’ve grown used to changing songs with those keys. The play/pause button is there, but unfortunately the previous/next keys aren’t.

    Those…

    A Good Solution for Those with Multiple IOS Devices, July 6, 2012
    By 

    This review is from: Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 for Mac/iPad/iPhone (920-003884) (Personal Computers)

    I have been using this keyboard for about a week, so my impressions are based on that usage.

    First, and foremost, the utility of this keyboard is its ability to seamlessly transition between up to three devices, whether it be a computer (Mac) and/or IOS devices like an Ipad and an IPhone. Prior to this keyboard, I used the Apple Bluetooth keyboard for typing on my IOS devices, There are two large drawbacks with the Apple board. First, the thing sucks batteries, and even with rechargeable ones, unless you have a spare set handy, the keyboard stops working in the most inopportune of places. Second, when paired with an IOS device, you have to manually disconnect it in order to use the built in keyboard, then once disconnected, have to reconnect it once more. If you are moving between apps, one of which needs keyboard input and others which do not, this manual coupling and decoupling-at least for me-was sufficient to not use a keyboard at all for input. This device solves that minor dilemma admirably. Once connected, a simple keystroke automatically couples and decouples the keyboard between the three devices paired. A blue light displays which of the three devices one is using, and it seamlessly transitions between devices with no more than a keystroke. For this feature alone the keyboard might be worth the cost. Add in the solar recharging, and it is that much more appealing.

    I deducted two stars because the typing dynamics of the keyboard are quite poor. I am a writer so I spend a significant amount of time using the keyboard where feel and touch are important. The keys lack tactile feel, even more so than Apple’s keyboard which I already thought was mediocre at best. The keys are quite noisy, and make a loud clacking when typing. They feel loose and insubstantial, and do not fit the fingers well. The advertised concavity of the keys is hardly present, they are nearly flat, and my fingers are constantly slipping off the keys. Compared to the desktop versions of Logitech keyboards which offer a very nice typing experience, this keyboard should have a been a lot better. I do not recommend it for those who type a significant amount of text or need the feel of a better keyboard. The build quality is not up to Apple’s keyboard, but it seems reasonably well built. That said, it comes without a case and nothing to protect the solar panel, so expect to see wear from this plastic device it if you’re moving around with it.

    In the end. the muli-device functionality and solar capabilities are great features. The typing experience, however, leaves a great deal to be desired. This is essentially a somewhat expensive device for sending short emails, texts and tweets.

    I received this keyboard a couple of days ago, and I’m quite impressed. first of all it connected to my laptop (PC), iPad, and iPhone flawlessly. Second, the speed at which it is able to switch connection from one device to another is very impressive. At the risk of looking like an uber-geek, I now sit at my desk surrounded by screens of various sizes and with one keyboard in the middle. I surprised at how often I switch the keyboard from one device to the next now that I have the option to do so.

    THe keyboard itself is quite attractive. At the risk of heresy, i think it’s even more attractive than my Apple bluetooth keyboard. The keys are quite large and have great travel. I dont think they feel cheap at all- they just have a lot more travel and feedback than the Apple KB, whcih is more inline with my personal preference.

    I also love that I wont have to worry about replacing the batteries every month. That gets really old after awhile- seems to always happen at the worst time. Now if i could only get a wireless solar powered mouse….
