Review of the Logitech K810 Bluetooth Keyboard

E-mail Print PDF

I'm typing this review on a train using the Logitech K810 Keyboard. I'm really happy with this purchase. I was using an Apple Bluetooth keyboard previously, but it just wasn't working out.

Pairing the keyboard to all my devices was quick and easy. Hit the connect button on the bottom, choose one of the three hot keys and the device is ready to pair. You may be asked to type in a number on the keyboard and hit enter. One of the great features of this keyboard is the ability to pair it with multiple devices. Pressing one of the hotkeys (located on F1 to F3) switches the keyboard to that device. When switching, it seems to take about two seconds to connect to my Windows 8 tablet (a Samsung Series 7 Slate) or iPad4. Each of the Bluetooth keys has an indicator over it to show the pairing status. I couldn't get it to pair with my HTC Titan 2 Windows 7.8 phone. It says the device is unsupported. I'm not counting that against the keyboard though since it's probably the phone in this case, and I don't have a use for the keyboard on my phone anyway. I was just trying to pair it since both devices were handy.

This is a small chiclet style keyboard. I don't really like keyboards of this style, but see them as a necessary when mobile. However, the quality of this keyboard is pretty good. The spacing of the keys matches my full size keyboard, and the buttons feel durable. I type pretty hard sometimes and these keys don't feel like they're going to pop off or get crushed. For programming, I miss my Home and End keys. The F1 keys default to the special functions. To actually hit F1 you need to hold FN. This is adjustable in Windows using the matching SetPoint software which will also allow you to see the battery level. I've set it so pressing the function keys does the normal action in Windows. That way my hot keys for Visual Studio are the same on my desktop as my tablet.

As far as batteries go, I've been using this keyboard for four months now and have only charged it once (recently) since the initial charge. The battery is built in and the keyboard charges using one of standard small USB connections, the same one as many cell phones. There is a power switch on the side so I don't have to worry about the keys getting pressed and waking up my various devices in my bag.

I haven't lost key presses with this keyboard like I have with other wireless keyboards. If I don't press anything for some time, then start to type, there seems to be a very short delay before the key is registered on my computer, it always goes through though. That's important because otherwise I end up having to go back and correct missing letters frequently.

I haven't had much use for the backlight. This keyboard has a backlight. It's adjustable. Seems plenty good.

This keyboard looks great and feels sturdy. It stays in place on the table on the train. The finish and size match nicely with my Series 7 Slate. I would recommend this keyboard over the one Samsung sells for the device.

The mouse in the picture is a Logitech M325. I wanted a Bluetooth mouse, but was having trouble finding one that had a power switch, was the right size, and happened to match my keyboard and tablet. So I opted for this one which uses a small USB Unifying Receiver.

Blog commenting doesn't lend itself to this kind of strategy.
Search engine rankings depend on this credibility,
if your site has a lot of valuable backlinks, it will rank much higher in a very Google, Bing,
Yahoo. Something's popularity growing exponentially once it begins to really take
off.
