Logitech K810 Wireless Keyboard Review

Logitech K810 Bluetooth Keyboard

When it comes to Bluetooth-enabled keyboards, consumers are really spoilt for choice. Options are aplenty, right from unbranded Chinese ones to branded keyboards that are more expensive. And comprising from the latter is Logitech’s K810 Bluetooth keyboard. We check type out to see if it’s really worth the asking price.

Design:

Take one look at the K810 keyboard and you’ll know it’s one of the most aesthetic pleasing Bluetooth keyboards amidst a sea of cheap looking ones. Not only the keyboard is thin, it features a brushed aluminium design and a glossy top that gives it a premium look. The keys are nicely spaced out and features the Bluetooth pair button at the bottom of the keyboard and microUSB port for charging and power switch at the side.

Performance:

Making the K810 work is really easy. Just push the Bluetooth connect button on the keyboard (at the bottom) and pair it with the target Bluetooth device. The keyboard can be used with three devices simultaneously, which means you can quickly switch back and forth from your smartphone to the tablet or to the PC by just pressing the function keys.

Another advantage K810 possesses is the illumination function. The keyboard is backlit and supports up to four levels of brightness, which can be adjusted by the user or let the keyboard decide to illuminate automatically. Logitech has also integrated hand proximity detection that activates the backlight as soon as the fingers approach the keyboard. The proximity may seem an unwanted feature when you’re using the keyboard in daylight but comes in really handy when you’re using it in the dark.

As for the typing experience goes, I would go and say it is one of the best I’ve experienced on a wireless keyboard. The chiclet keys and Logitech’s Incurve design that gives the keys a concave surface, makes it really easy and comfortable to type.

I’ve been using the keyboard extensively for the last 10-12 days for about 8 hours every day and the keyboard is yet to run out of juice. However, Logitech claims you can get from 10 days to up to a year of battery life depending on the usage and the brightness of the illumination.

Wrap Up:

Logitech has priced the keyboard at Rs. 8,295 and frankly, many would deem it expensive. However, if budget is no constraint, K810 is the one to get that is not only aesthetically appealing but gives a great typing experience.

Rating:
Pros: Backlight, Excellent Typing experience
Cons: Price
