Using it with my iPad as I type right now!
I originally wanted a keyboard for my computer because I got in a bad car accident and my computer was throw from the vehicle resu I originally wanted a keyboard for my computer because I got in a bad car accident and my computer was throw from the vehicle resulting in half of the buttons falling off. I went to best buy not expecting anything fancy but when I read what this laptop could do I bought it and tried it in the store just in case I needed to return it.
I set up both my laptop and iPad at the same time and it worked flawlessly! I was able to switch from one device to the other with just a click of a button! It does take about 2-3 seconds for it to to connect when switching, but who complains about that?!
The cool thing I noticed about this keyboard is that it is touch and hover activated! If you touch it or even hover your hands over it, it lights up! If you take your hands away after 5 seconds it goes into power saving mode.
It also matches the MacBook Air and Pros perfectly with its metally-silver and black design. It is also small and light and would fit into just about every bag or laptop case.
It is rechargeable and comes with a cord, but since I have taken it out of the box I haven't had to charge it yet and I have gotten at least two hours of use all together and it hasn't died on me. When I do plug it in however, it does still work to use and type on.
So far I am super glad that I bought this key board, If I have any issues I will be sure to log on and update my review. Hope this helps! Enjoy! …

Easy to use keyboard, fast switching
The Logitech K811 really does switch easily. Size wise, the keyboard is roughly the same as any Apple Keyboard, getting used to it The Logitech K811 really does switch easily. Size wise, the keyboard is roughly the same as any Apple Keyboard, getting used to it was a matter of minutes, not days. The keys give a nice, solid feedback, quite similar to the keyboards from Apple. Quick controls on the top for volume, play/pause and backlight settings make this keyboard easy to use. An added 'home button' key on the 5th function key also makes this easy to use on iDevices.
Switching from a MacBook Pro to iPhone 5, as I do daily, usually takes no more then a second and a half. A simple tap on the top left keys instantly switches the source. Switching often doesn't really seem to affect battery usage all that much. Using this keyboard for 8 hours at work and a couple of hours at home every day, alternating between MacBook and iPhone, I can go several days without charging.
Another feature of this keyboard is the backlight. It's somewhat similar to the MacBook Pro keyboard backlight. A sensor in the top near the Logitech logo senses light and when it gets dark, the backlight turns on. (unless you turn it off manually) During the day, you don't need backlight and during the evening, I usually turn it off, to save some power, but it's there when you need it, just like the MacBook Pro/Air keyboards. It's a nice bonus.
Combined with a Apple Magic Trackpad/Mouse, this is a great keyboard for Macs. By itself, this Logitech K811 will definitely speed up replying to those emails on your iDevice in the train or in a traffic jam. (The CMD + Shift + D shortcut works great on your iPhone for sending an email, just like it does on your Mac!) …

Excellent versatile keyboard!
I received a Logitech K750 solar keyboard for my MacBook in 2012 for Xmas. It was a sturdy well made keyboard though rather wide. I received a Logitech K750 solar keyboard for my MacBook in 2012 for Xmas. It was a sturdy well made keyboard though rather wide. I have replaced that keyboard with this Logitech K811. The footprint is very small, taking up little desk space. The bonus is that is connects to my iPhone, iPad and my Macbook with the touch of a button. I can be typing a letter on my Macbook and receive a text message on my phone (in the 12south iPhone5 stand) and simply touch a key, respond to the text, touch another key and go right back to my letter.
It might look light and plastic in the photos but I assure you, it is not. The body is plastic but the keyboard template (surrounding the keys) is solid aluminium. It is also backlit which is a marvellous addition. …
