Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800


Keyboards aren't exactly the sexiest peripherals in the market. For most folks, they serve a purely utilitarian purpose and are usually given as much thought as, say, a routine cleaning with the dentist. The Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800...

Unique space-saving design. Hand detection proximity toggles the backlight. Unifying receiver conserves available USB ports

Requires a dongle. Expensive for a non-gaming keyboard

Cool" typically isn't a word used to describe keyboards, but the Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800 is just that, sporting an innovative design along with a slew of nifty features that, as a whole, justify its high price tag.

Logitech K800 Wireless Illuminated Keyboard

Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800


This comfortable, smartly designed keyboard is best for those who prefer a laptop-style keyfeel. Unless you truly need wireless, however, its wired brother is a better value.

Smart backlighting; stands on edge for storage; power-saving features; Unifying technology

Pricey; half-size F-keys; no dedicated media-file transport keys

Our final takeaway: The Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800 is a sound and attractive keyboard in its own right, but unless you have a strong practical or aesthetic need for the wireless, the wired version is a better value. Still, we'd settle for...

This wireless keyboard makes a strong impression with backlit keyboard characters, batteries that are rechargeable with the help of a micro-USB cord, a comfortable light-touch key system and a slim space-saving design

The keyboard's energy saving feature that puts it to sleep when not in use takes too long to wake up again for some users' tastes

"A truly outstanding keyboard"


This keyboard is simply outstanding! Wireless with a great feel to the keyboard. I use it a lot at times when the lighting in the room is a bit marginal (along with my eyesight) and the backlit feature simply does its job, illuminating the keyboard for...

Feel, backlight feature and its wireless! Great battery life.

Only con might be that the price is a bit high, but it's really not a con because the keyboard is worth every penny.
