Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 Review

Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 Review
My main concern before buying this keyboard was that it would die too often. Let me first illuminate how these fears were put to rest after several months of use. I use this keyboard in a area with a single window which is covered by both window shading and drapes. I additionally use the keyboard not less than 10 feet from the window and the light in the room is off for most of the day. The keyboard gets a few hours of use daily and I have never turned the hardware power switch off. The energy level, however, never dropped below 100 percent.

Then, the "PerfectStroke key system" and "Incurve Keys" actually are pleasant and make typing less complicated. I appreciate the way the key feels whenever you press down. You receive a little level of feedback almost akin to the old IBM keyboards, but without the loud clicking. I agree that it is a lttle bit like tapping on a laptop. The fundamental difference, yet, is that the keys on the k750 are more stronger than those on your usual notebook PC.

As for the connection, I was a bit worried that the new super-small "unifying receiver" would not provide a sufficient amount of signal. This really is wrong. In fact, this small transponder performs much better than Logitech's older stick version. It's on the back of my desktop and so has to see through an aluminum desktop chassis and a wooden desk, about 4 feet total space. I have never come up with a problem with the signal on either my mouse or this keyboard.

In conclusion, the software for the keyboard is very much what you'd expect. You press the sunlight button and a dialog appears on your pc informing you the "LUX" (light coverage) your keyboard is getting and how much battery power is last. There is also a function key that you use in combination with the top row of keys to do stuff like open your internet browser, pause a song, mute/increase/decrease the volume, and so forth.

One weakness, according to my wife, is it looks like I'm using a giant old-school calculator. I do believe this is not accurate at all: the solar panels really are a dark red while the keyboard is black. That leads to the solar panels to not really be apparent unless you are looking for them.
