This review is from: Logitech K750 2.4GHz Wireless Solar Powered Keyboard - Black
Pros: As many have said, this is a great keyboard overall.
You never need to plug it in (and you can't).
It has a sleek and modern feel to it, the buttons are quiet and low-profile. It's very solid feeling, heavy even, about twice as heavy as the logitech ex100 I was using before. Some might consider that a con but I like it.
There's a little sun-icon button that brings up a panel showing your battery%, as well as the Lux you're getting from whatever light is in the room, which I find to be a very unique and handy feature. How much more light are you getting in the living room vs. the bedroom vs. the porch? There ya go.
Mine arrived fully charged, that's always nice.
Cons: Battery - I think it has to be not-in-use AND in the light to charge well.
It's purported to be able to charge under sunlight or "even desk-lamp light," however, when I got the keyboard about a month ago it was at 100%, and now it's at about 81%. Certainly not bad, for a month of daily use. But then again, that means if I want it to increase or even break even, I have to change something, the light, how much time it's in the light, where I store the keyboard, and even though that might not seem like much, it does equal one more thing that you have to do, as opposed to just being able to toss the keyboard wherever and never worry about it.
To note however, probably 1/2 of my keyboard use is in the dark. I'm sure if you leave it alone and in the light for an extended time it will charge up, but if the room light's on, I'm in the room, and if I'm in the room, there's a good chance I'm... on the computer!
Line of sight - You do need to have a line of sight to the usb receiver. I initially had it plugged into my desktop pc, which is in the closet to help keep the heat, light and noise separated from my HDTV monitor and I, and with the door closed it would cut out frequently, from about 10 feet away. That's okay because I have a usb hub next to me anyway, so now it's there and it's flawless.
Other Thoughts: Super overall, I love not having to do anything, things like buy batteries, install them, plug things in, get my legs around a keyboard cord, things like that. This helps with those things, and my overall dream of doing nothing. Cheers! :)READ FULL REVIEW
