The Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard was recently announced at the end of June 2016 and it is currently now available in the market. I had an opportunity to review the Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard for a period of two weeks.
There was an earlier article that I shared here on the press release announcement of the Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard. The Logitech K780 design is built on the highly successful Logitech K380 Multi-Device Keyboard, a keyboard that I personally reviewed it as well, before making a purchase to own it for my own home, connecting my iMac, iPad Air and iPhone 6. I really like the Logitech K380 since I am able to connect and switch easily between my various devices, just by pressing the yellow buttons on my K380.
Before I proceed to share my thoughts and views of the Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard review, let me refresh the key features of this keyboard –
- Type on anything: The K780 Multi-Device is compatible with any computer, smartphone or tablet. Start typing on your computer, then switch and type on your phone or tablet – at the touch of an EasySwitch button.
- All the keys you need, with Perfect Stroke typing: Experience quiet and comfortable typing with large, carefully crafted concave keys in a full-size and familiar layout, including a 10-key number pad.
- Mobile device cradle: An integrated cradle holds a variety of devices – from smartphones to the iPad ProTM – at the perfect reading angle.
- OS-adaptive: The K780 Multi-Device adapts to the operating system that is connected, and automatically maps keys to supported functions and shortcuts.
- Dual connectivity: With the K780 Multi-Device, you can choose the best way to connect the device. It comes with a Logitech Unifying USB receiver and Bluetooth Smart technology.
Thoughts and views of the Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard
- It’s easy to use, quick to setup, connect and switch between your various devices in your home.
- The cradle allows you to hold your devices for you to read and type away.
- I am running on Mac OS X and iOS, with the K780 being OS-adaptive, you can easily switch between the tabs/apps at the touch of the buttons on the K780 keyboard.
- The number pad on the K780 keyboard is a welcome addition, keying numbers/making calculations are now easy and fast.
- The design and materials used in this keyboard make it stable and sturdy, that also means it is a bit heavier than your previous keyboard that you have that comes together with your desktop.
As I currently still own the Logitech K380 keyboard, it’s still in good condition, serving me well without any issues. On a personal note, there is no incentive for me to upgrade my K380 keyboard to K780 keyboard.
However, if you don’t own any multi-device wireless keyboard and planning to own one, go for the Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard. The retail recommended price is $129, it’s not expensive, it’s a suitable and worthwhile investment to own, allowing you to connect your various devices together in your home.
I would like to thank Logitech Singapore for the opportunity to review the Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard review.
