Pros:Links to 3 devices via Bluetooth, adjustable backlighting,rechargeable battery via standard micro USB.

Cons:Does NOT include Bluetooth USB adapter/transmitter for PC or laptop, lacking Number Lock key.

The Bottom Line: Nice desktop keyboard and can be used with my smartphone or tablet.


For past 5+ years I’ve been using a Dell keyboard that has audio controls, numeric keypad and 2 USB 1.0 ports on the back. Unfortunately, lots of use has worn some of the keys to a point where they just don't respond properly 100% of the time so I started looking for a new keyboard.

My home/office desk now includes a smartphone (Galaxy S2) and tablet (Asus TF700) so the Logitech K810 caught my eye when I read about it's ability to link with any 1 of 3 Bluetooth devices by simply pressing the Function 1, 2 or 3 keys when you turn it on.

Working at night sometimes makes it hard to see the keys on my Dell keyboard so the backlit function of the K810 is also a plus. Logitech was even clever enough to include auto-shutoff of the backlight when the K810 isn't being used so the battery won't drain. The F5 and F6 keys act as a dimmer switch for the backlighting which has 5 settings from OFF to max brightness. The internal permanent battery charges with an included USB cable. However, I haven't needed the cable supplied by Logitech  because my Samsung smartphone has the same micro USB port so I can use that cable to charge the K810. This also means one less cable to carry when I travel. 

The K810 has standard full-size buttons so switching from an older corded keyboard to the K810 doesn't require retraining your fingers. The buttons have a rubberized appearance and feel which is slightly better than older hard buttons. The Caps Lock button has a built-in light which I find handier than looking on my older keyboard to see if if I have it on or off. Took me a second to find the Delete key which is right above the Back (backspace) key in upper right corner.

Most keyboards include 2 little 'kickstands' to adjust the angle but since this keyboard is designed to be for desktop and travel with your tablet or smartphone, they only include 4 tiny rubber feet to prevent slipping on smooth surfaces. 

CONS

No Number Lock button! It's a "must have" for me because I have a custom-built font that only lets me create a signature if I use number lock and then ALT+179 command. I searched Google and all over Logitech website and blogs. One other person asked about it and only response said there is none. I'm rather surprised that Logitech overlooked this.

Another gripe is that Logitech does NOT include a Bluetooth transmitter for your desktop or laptop PC so if your computer lacks built-in Bluetooth, you'll need to buy one. This is surprising because even $29 wireless keyboards include a Bluetooth USB adapter for PC and this one more than double that price. I had an old adapter from a few years ago that plugs into a USB port. Wasn't sure what would happen when I plugged it into my desktop PC because I'm running Windows 8. Took 2 or 3 seconds but Windows 8 found my new device and automatically installed the driver for the Bluetooth adapter. Syncing the K810 with Windows 8 was accomplished by using the Add New Device feature in Win8 after first turning on the K810 and pressing the F1 (a/k/a Bluetooth 1) button. Win8 then let me choose the new device and gave me a 6digit code to type into the K810 to complete the connection. Connecting to smartphone (as 2nd device) and tablet (as 3rd device) is as simple as turning off the Bluetooth function of your phone or tablet. Then press the F2 or F3 keyboard button, which will make the blue light flash. Then turn Bluetooth function of your phone or tablet ON and do a scan for new devices. When it finds the K810 it will tell you top type a numeric code into the K810 and like magic, you're now connected. I had no problems linking the keyboard to both my smartphone and tablet. Changing the link from one device to another is as simple as pressing the F1, F2 or F3 key that corresponds to the device you want to use with the keyboard. I'm not aware of any other keyboard that can do this so IMHO, this makes the Logitech K810 a very cool and handy device. 

Caps Lock. Is it me or the placement? Not sure but as I type I have repeatedly accidentally turned the Caps lock on and off. 

Between the lack of Number Lock and caps lock issue which has become annoying, I might be returning this keyboard but if neither of those issues bother you, this is a great device. 

As of 3/23/2013, best price I found was at Staples for $69.99 so I simply printed their online ad and took it into my local Best Buy and they matched the prioce instantly!
