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 Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800 Review and Ratings

 

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.
