4 out of 5 eggs Nice upgrade from the wired version 12/17/2010

This review is from: Logitech K800 Black USB RF Wireless Slim Illuminated Keyboard

Pros:

Rechargeable via micro USB

Normal key layout with regular sized insert and delete keys.

Able to replace with normal AA batteries on the fly

Small Unyfying wireless connector

The keys have a rubbery look but they are plastic thats slightly concave and rounded off smooth

White backlight, not red or the overly used blue that cause so much eye strain

All keys light up, this is a huge plus when compared to the wired version where only the amber function keys lit up and not the F keys

Has 4 brightness settings and an off setting and the highest setting is brighter than the corded version

No lagging so far, im currently playing COD4 with this, no issues yet.

Setpoint can disable the annoying keys like CAPS, insert and scroll lock. Windows key and numberlock

Only the CAPS has a small dedicated green light on the key that lets you know its on.

Its about the exact same length and width as the wired version

I can boot into the BIOS with this keyboard no issues.

Cons:

Back light turns off in "less than 3 seconds" after your hands leave the keyboard.

The hand sensors are located in the palm rest, 1 to 2 inch proximity required to activate backlight.

To remove the battery cover, you have to warp/bend it, then slide it off

Comes with rechargeable EniTime 2000mAh 1.2V batteries. Not Sanyo Eneloops!

To remove one of the batteries you have to rip off a hard plastic sticky tape thats tough to get to.

Every time the computer is turned on the brightness setting resets to the lowest level

No AC wall outlet to USB adapter included like the Performance Mouse MX.

Font looks too fat, the symbols on the number row is basically right on top of each other.

The battery life key "function F7" does not bring up an onscreen display of the battery life, it just lights up the battery meter on the keyboard.

The battery level dropped to 1 bar in 2 days of regular use with brightness on max, keyboard was always on, hit critical red in 10 days .

Other Thoughts:

I upgraded from the wired version for the wireless and rechargeable benefit.
Its great and so far i like it, no major complains yet. The font on the wired version was way better and sharp, its like someone turned on "bold" on these keys. The wrist rest is a hard piece of plastic, not like the soft rubbery material on the wired model. It was an upgrade but not without a few drawbacks and nothings perfect. I will also be switching out the batteries for some 2000mAh Eneloops. Another note is that to charge this you must use USB connection, for those that have a modern phone or any micro USB charged device made in the last 2 years you wont have to worry about the keyboard only charging when the computer is turned on, i use the charger from my Performance Mouse MX thats plugged into the wall, not the computer. Reception is great at 10 feet, and no issues syncing the keyboard with the Performance Mouse MX unifying receiver i already had

The keyboard does not pass data over the USB cable
