Logitech K480 review

 

Though affordable, Logitech's Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480 doesn't feel like it'd hold up to wear-and-tear.

Pairs with up to three devices and operating systems at once ; Battery lasts two years ; Works with Windows, MacOS, Android, iOS, and Chromebook

Looks and feels cheaply constructed ; Some keys are oddly shaped, and some keys are missing ; Noisy while typing ; Thick and heavy

While the Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480 feels a bit cheap, it’s a decent value given its low price. It’s not the most comfortable for prolonged typing, but then neither are most other keyboards designed to work with mobile devices.

Review: Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480 Logitech

 

This $50 wireless gadget lets you use one keyboard to type input into multiple devices. It works with iOS, Mac, Windows and Android---switching between paired devices is done using the selection dial located just above the Escape key.

Connects to multiple operating systems: iOS, Android, Mac OS X and Windows. Switch between devices with the twist of a knob. Minimal setup effort. Long battery life. Spacious layout ; TIRED

Cheap build quality. Loud and annoying clack-clack-clack sounds while typing. Not all that mobile—leave it at your desk. Takes AAAs, no built-in rechargeable battery like Logitech’s other mobile-friendly keyboards

Logitech K480 Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard

 

Logitech's K480 Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard lets you connect a computer, your phone, and tablet, all of which could be using different platforms, to a single keyboard—with solid results.

Connects with most major platforms. Switches between multiple devices extremely well. Comfortable keyboard. Inexpensive.

Not compatible with Windows Phone OS. Not compact or light enough to be used as a portable tablet keyboard. Doesn't have all the usual keys you find on a full-size keyboard.

Conclusion The K480 works extremely well, and it's useful and fun to switch between devices so quickly and easily. I thoroughly enjoyed typing this review using the K480 with an iPad Air and effortlessly switching to my Nexus 5 to reply to texts and...

Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480 Review and Ratings

 

The K480 offers a solid typing experience, simple setup, and compatibility with every major operating system. It can replace a host of separate keyboards in a household: for a tablet, for an HTPC, and more.

Compatible with Windows, Android, iOS, and OS X ; Comfortable typing experience ; Simple to set up ; Switches between devices seamlessly

No backlighting ; No feet to raise typing angle ; A bit too large to be truly portable

Surprisingly, the Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480 succeeds in its one-size-fits-all approach. Thanks to its built-in Bluetooth receiver, the keyboard is compatible with nearly all operating systems, and its innovative dial mechanism...

Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480 [Review]

When you have such a unique keyboard, there can be a fear that the company might neglect the actual typing experience and build quality. In other words, the multi-device aspect alone would sell keyboards, even if the overall experience was only...

Logitech K480 Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard: A wireless keyboard for up to three devices at once (hands-on)

 

You've got a computer, smartphone, and tablet, but do you have a keyboard that works with all of them at the same time?

The K480 is due to ship this month in the US and Europe. Check back here for a review soon, at which time we hope to have more details on UK and Australian pricing -- $50 converts to around £30 or AU$54.
