Logitech K800 Wireless Illuminated Keyboard Review

When you find a keyboard you like you never want to change, my keyboard is the one component of my main system that has not changed since 2007!  Logitech released the diNovo Edge keyboard back in 2007 and even since it has been my main keyboard.  Surprisingly enough logitech still makes it and it sells for just about the same price.  I think after 5 years it is time to move on to a new keyboard and I think the K800 wireless keyboard may just be the right keyboard.  It has some of the same features of the diNovo Edge as well as some new ones.  Read on and see if the K800 can make me let go of my 5 year old diNovo Edge.

Special thanks to Logitech for providing us with the K800 Wireless Illuminated Keyboard to review.

    either you do an f-ton of typing or your batteries are crap! i get about 3 weeks – a month out of mine. Fortunately you can unscrew the battery cover and replace the stockers with something with much better life, as they are AA – i wonder how long a set of eneloop or something would last?

    i have never bothered with the setpoint so far either – the FN key with F5/F6 will set the illuminate level, F8 for sleep mode, and F7 when i need to check the battery, altho the battery level usually comes on as i start typing and then goes away. there are others too of course; but ive never bothered with them.

    the unifying reciever is awsesome, i have another logi mouse which has never had its receiver taken out and used as i simply bound the mouse to the keyboard receiver. spares are always handy 🙂

    and lastly it is not a proprietary plug; it is simply a USB micro (not mini!) plug, i actually have a mini-micro adapter i plug into my camera cable ( or at least the cable i HAD for the camera, the thing is long gone :P) and that works ferfectly pine for charging the K800.

    put it this way – of all people, my mum was impressed enough with mine she got one for herself too. i dont see myself giving mine up till the thing dies on me…. and then i’ll either have to get another one – or filch mums 😛

    Been using mine for more than 3 years and its still running flawless. Batteries that came with it also are still working fine without much loss in capacity. I think it is not going to be easy for me to move to other keyboard once this has breathes its last breath. Keeping fingers crosses. I actually prefer K800 to a mech keyboard that I also have.

    Could someone let me know if this keyboard has a light indicator for Caps key??

  • Sergiu

    yes, it has a small led on top left corner of the Caps Lock button
