Advantages: Performance is issue free!
Disadvantages: Gets dirty very easily
I've owned this keyboard for over two years now and it's time I'm shared my praise!! It cost £120 from Amazon, but now sell for less than £100.
In the box is the usual generic Logitech software which works for most computer related Logitech devices - great when you've got a mouse, keyboard, camera etc... There's also a cleaning cloth, USB receiver, charge base, ac adaptor, instructions and the keyboard itself.
The keyboard has an orange metal underside, with two extendable feet and a connect button. On the top side is a Perspex piece surrounding the keys and most of the keyboard, complimented by a brushed aluminium wrist rest. The Perspex arrives covered with a sticky plastic sheet which I kept on for 12 months... Even with it peeled off the finish hasn't scratched, but I am very careful.
On the side is a stiff on/off switch; I generally leave the keyboard on and I get roughly 3 months use between charges. Going from right to left, there's a touch sensitive volume control, windows media button, mute button, track pad with both left and right click, the main standard keyboard and on the left a sleep button and left click button. The further click button is useful when using the mouse more intensely.
At the lower point of the keyboard next to the Alt key is the Fn (function) key. When pressed a multitude of multimedia and useful options are lit up on the keyboard. Most of these options can be configured using the supplied software. I use the home key to open up a webpage at my 'Home' site (not dooyoo as yet...) other keys are useful for mail and some media functions.
The performance of the keyboard is the best I've ever experienced. It connects immediately, out performs some gaming keyboards on response times and gives you ample warning when the battery is low. I've never experienced a problem connecting.
Overall it's a great keyboard, but I have purchased a separate Bluetooth mouse for more active mouse work - I'm just not a fan of trackpads generally. The trackpad does have a nifty scroll feature which involves the user moving there finger in a circular motion...but it's not the same user friendly experience as a standard scroll wheel.
If you do use a separate Bluetooth mouse, please note the receiver won't work with it. Strangely the receiver only communicates with the keyboard, file transfers etc... will not work!
Summary: A flagship keyboard from Logitech which works really well....
