    Great Keyboard

    • Written by from Johnson City

    I bought this keyboard back in July for using my MBP Retina in Clamshell mode. I've had no issues and absolutely love it. The tactile feel of the keys is great and is similar to the built in keyboard. No issues with solar power. I have one small light in my office and a couple of lamps. Always fully charged with a green light when I check. I have nothing negative to say about this keyboard. If apple would have had a wireless keyboard with a number pad then maybe I would have bought it but with this one, I don't need one from Apple. The keys all work great and are designed for Mac. I actually bought this before my new MBP ever came and it worked fine on my PC too. Again, can't go wrong with this keyboard.

    Great product, but some drawbacks.

    • Written by from Newtown

    I bought this because I needed a new keyboard. It's appearance and build are solid, near-apple quality, and the keys are almost identical to an Apple keyboard and it worked great, but I'm just not sure I get the concept of a wireless keyboard. A keyboard just sits on your desk next to your computer... why does a wire matter? Not having a wire creates its own issues... now the keyboard has to be powered somehow, so Logitech has wisely included solar panels on it to charge it. Nice idea, but now I have to turn on a light to use my keyboard if the room is kind of dim. Also, I'm losing the 2 USB ports which are normally on an Apple keyboard (the keyboard being wireless doesn't save a port because it needs a USB dongle to work). In addition, they suggest you install an app to monitor the keyboard charge level, an app which has terrible reviews in the App Store... search for it if you want to see. So, in order to eliminate one wire, the keyboard complexity is increased with the app and solar panels. It just makes no sense to me... just keep the wire! In addition, I was having computer issues so I had to boot from a DVD... holding down "C" while booting didn't work with this keyboard, so I ended up having to set up the DVD as a startup disk, which worked, but is a poor solution. After trying to restore my system from a backup, I was faced with a kernel panic. Suddenly there was no way to designate a startup disk or boot from the DVD, so I had to get my Apple "wired" keyboard and hook it up just so I could boot from the DVD! I'm pretty sure that was another problem caused by the wireless aspect.

    The keyboard Apple should have built...

    • Written by from Escondido

    Was hesitant to pick this up because I thought it might be of lower quality than a nice Apple aluminum keyboard. To be sure, it's not aluminum, but that hasn't bothered me or my aesthetic sensibilities one bit. And it feels like a quality keyboard.

    The Pros:
    - First and foremost, it has a 10-key section.. an absolute must
    - Great typing touch/feel
    - No wires
    - Solar... (big plus for me)
    - Lays flat if you want it to and is fairly thin.

    Only thing's I would change:
    - Caps lock indicator
    - aluminum body
    - bluetooth (instead of the USB wireless system)
    - Supporting software (solar app) needs to be updated as it it needlessly "spams the console log". (Don't bother installing it, as it is hard to uninstall and you don't need it.)

    If Apple had built it, they would NOT have botched the app... and it would have been aluminum and Bluetooth. Come on, Tim... You like spreadsheets, don't you!?!?

    All in all, I love this keyboard as it has met my biggest need/want to have a 10 key on a wireless keyboard... and it's solar! Yes, there's room for improvement but at $60 it's a great value.

    A little over-rated

    • Written by from Bryant

    I'd not buy another one; Keys have nice feedback and action; my kingdom for backlighting.

    Works fine enough but it's been about 6 months and now it's being a bit of a princess about battery power and available light. It takes an oddly long time to recharge even in direct sunlight. What are powering up here? Once it hits about 5%, it pretty much punts. A little (I mean occasional) lag but not enough to consider it a liability. Does NOT have a CAPS LOCK indicator or light or anything that give you feedback. Had to spend a buck at the AppStore. It's not the money, it's the fact that such an elementary item was omitted. Frustrating and finicky control panel.

    It's good at best. But let's be honest, it's a keyboard.

    Works exactly how you'd expect - even in low light!

    • Written by from Eugene

    So happy with this. Much easier to type on than the default keyboards, no need for batteries, and still has all the right function keys for OSX. Not to mention it's sleek, think and goes well with my Mac desktop.

    Spilled Coke, still works

    • Written by from Ball Ground

    I loved this keyboard from the beginning, but yesterday I really loved it. Spilled Diet coke on the right side, immediately turned it upside down and started rubbing the front with a towel. As you know, this rarely works. When it looked like I had removed all of the surface moisture, I put it down to see how bad the damage was, thinking I would stick it in rice or keep it upside down and hope for the best.

    Well, it was fine. Perfect. Whew.

    So comfortable

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I just opened up the box plugged it in and was ready to go in 2 minutes after the battery charged.

    The keys are easy to use and map very closely to the laptop keyboard which I personally love.

    No more batteries!

    Comfortable numeric keyboard.

    • Written by from Mountain view

    Comfortable, quiet keys with more travel than a laptop keyboard. Having a numeric keyboard makes life easier.

    Best Keyboard Ever!

    • Written by from Syracuse

    I've had is for a few weeks now and have found this to be the best Mac keyboard I've ever used. Wireless and with a number pad! Oh ya never dead battery in the middle of a project. Apple should sell this with their iMacs. Stylish, color coordinates with Mac look and design. A must for any Mac user.

    Beautiful product. Best keyboard I've ever used.

    • Written by from Williamsburg

    I needed a full-size keyboard with a numeric pad and I wanted a wireless product. Apple doesn't have a product to match my need. I applaud them for recommending this keyboard. It's a beautiful product that so far has exceeded my expectations in every regard. I highly recommend it for anyone needing a full-featured keyboard.

    The Apple wireless keyboard is good, but I really wanted a wireless keyboard that still complemented the iMac and had an integrated number pad. This has the same look and and feel as the Apple keyboard, but offers the full capability and layout of a standard wired keyboard.

    Especially for business users, this is a must. I've had this for a few months and the family (not just me) love it. The other benefit is that I have yet to replace a battery. When are they coming out with a solar mouse??

    Four Stars!

    • Written by from Milwaukee

    I love this keyboard for its design, its feel, and that it's solar powered!

    Only four of five stars as there are no built in USB ports for my Logitech wireless USB mouse and the keyboard requires a USB receiver of its own.

    Note to Logitech: Maybe Bluetooth connectivity and built in USB ports for future models?

    Note to Apple: Maybe solar collectors in future Apple products to help further reduce their electricity consumption?

    I would recommend this keyboard and do not regret my purchase.

    An Absolute Must Have!

    • Written by from Leland

    While I love the look/design of the Apple wireless keyboard, I missed my number pad. I was excited to find the Logitech wireless full keyboard with the same look as the original. The solar power was an added plus and works perfectly. I have had the keyboard for a couple of months now and the charge has never dropped below 100%. Just the natural sunlight, even through the closed blinds is enough to keep it fully charged. No batteries to have to worry with. I absolutely love it! Couldn't be happier with my decision. Now if they could come up with a solar powered mouse!!

    Overall great!

    • Written by from Port Arthur

    I ordered this keyboard when the LMP Bluetooth Keypad I was using along with my Apple wireless keyboard went out on me. I just received it this morning, & so far, I'm loving it overall. There are a couple of cons to it; namely there is no light or any other indicator to show when the caps lock is on, & I would prefer a Bluetooth keyboard so that I wouldn't have to tie up one of my USB ports. But I feel that these are things I can live with, & that the pros far outweigh the cons. So far, the keyboard seems sturdy & durable, & the keys have a great feel to them when typing. And I like the idea that it's solar powered & that I won't have to worry about buying & replacing batteries. And probably the biggest advantage: it has a 10-key keypad! Personally, I find it much more comfortable to use that keypad that the row of numbers at the top of the keyboard when possible, & it's always baffled me that Apple didn't include one on their wireless keyboard. Especially when the USB version has one! So, to sum it up, though I've only had this keyboard for a matter of hours, so far, I'd highly recommend it (Possibly even more highly than Apple's version!). I think I've finally found a keeper, & heck, if they'd fix the minor issues I have, I'd even be the first in line to buy the new model!

    Excellent wireless full size keyboard for my iMac!

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    This is the first product I've ever left feedback, but wanted to share my experience with this logitech keyboard. It works great, I love having the full size keyboard AND being wireless. The design is nice and very complimentary to my iMac and Magic Trackpad. I have only had the keyboard a short while, and I'm loving the number pad, "page up" and "page down" buttons as well as the "home" and "end" keys. If you're looking for a full size keyboard and don't want the wired USB option, you have found the product you're looking for.

    Design is perfect - solar powered (no batteries) & wireless (no cords)!
    Has a numeric keypad, which regular wireless Mac keyboards do not.
    Has all the media controls and lights up in dark conditions.

    Used the Windows version of this same keyboard on old PC - now that I've switched to a MacBook Pro, my husband uses the PC one and loves it.

    Great wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Austin

    This keyboard has a lot of great features. From the Apple design/colors to the keyboard feel. I actually like the texture and keystrokes better than the wired apple keyboard.

    As for the design, it is made out of plastic with a silver paint that looks just like the apple aluminum. Even though it is plastic it still feels durable and light.

    Also all of the Apple shortcut buttons work excellent. Some of the images are out of date but they still access the proper function. While I don't use them much they always work.

    Finally it is not Bluetooth. But don't let this hold you back. Especially if you don't use the USB connections much. I was able to go three rooms away in my house and still type (not that this served any purpose).

    This is such an amazing product, everyone who has a Mac should purchase one. It was already charged out-of-the-box, it has so many other features such as in numerical keypad on the right, and the best part is it's solar powered. So far I have not found any flaws in the keyboard and it is thin and sleek. A must buy!

    A MUST buy!!!!

    • Written by from Albany

    This is an absolutely amazing keyboard.
    1) Its mac compatible, looks like the white Apple Keyboard, has the mac layout and different keys (command, option, brightness, volume, etc). Goes perfectly with a mac mini or cinema display setup.

    2) It is a numeric keyboard and is wireless. Yes it does require the use of a USB port, but the unifying receiver is tiny and barely noticeable. You get a full size keyboard with numeric keys, which for some people is a necessity.

    3) SOLAR POWERED, I hate having to change batteries and they always seem to run out when im doing something important. No more batteries EVER, at full battery reserve, the keyboard will function for 3 months without the need for light. 3 MONTHS!!!!
    Logitech also made an app that shows you battery percentage as well as showing you how much light the keyboard is getting- amazing app.

    4) Thin and sleek and works like an absolute charm. No lag in speed and the feel of the keys is just like any macbook keyboard or Apple keyboard. So, it is very easy to adjust to it.

    -Its plastic, Apple's keyboards are aluminum, so this may bother people. But overall the keyboard is quite sturdy and and lightweight.

    -You have to use the FN button to use the Function keys. This is the only downside to this keyboard and currently there is no software to customize it. It depends on how much you use the function keys, i barely use them, but if you absolutely require them, this keyboard isnt for you.

    You wont regret this purchase, if your looking for a wireless keyboard with numeric keys and the benefit of never having to change your batteries every, buy this now!!!!!
