Hi Everyone,

I just got my Logitech K750 and I must say it looks stunning. I already had the Anywhere MX wireless mouse which uses the same receiver, very easy to set that up as well, it works a treat.

I must mention that the Images used by Amazon do not reflect the UK version of this keyboard. I don't think this topic has been mentioned but I'll try and list the differences: (apologies in advance for my poor explanation skills ;) )
The "Enter" key is normal size and shape, like a vertical rectangle with a bit more width at the top
The @ sign is just left of the # key (in the normal UK place and the " character is on the number 2 along the top of the keyboard.
The \| key is far left of the keyboard above the left hand side CTRL.
The keyboard also has the £ sign on the number 3 and the sign on the number 4.

Some reviews have also mentioned a lack of NUM, CAPS and SCROLL lights. It is correct in that there are no lights, but a notification displays on your screen, bottom middle of the screen, you cannot miss it.

The keyboard is absolutely beautiful, I felt a bit of an idiot for even thinking of buying a £60 keyboard, but this is well worth the cost.

My study is the wrong side of the house to even get sunlight, but the LUX meter tool (a playful addition) is saying I'm getting 407 (the maximum is 500).

An all round excellent keyboard, I would recommend this to anyone and everyone.

Excellent.

- Been using for a couple of months now- absolutely no issues with battery-life, even when leaving in a relatively dark room.

- Connecting/reconnecting to the computer is incredibly fast, no delay whatsoever.

- Works out-the-box and very nicely in Ubuntu Linux.

- Looks great. Very sleek.

This keyboard served me great for the initial 7 months. Wireless, rechargeable, Solar power, even the keys on the keyboard felt just perfect. It was everything I would have hoped for. So, what happened? 4 weeks ago, my keyboard loses charges extremely quickly.

For the initial 7 months, the keyboard power never felt below 90%. Then one day, a warning message pop-up saying the power in my keyboard is getting low?!?! It could be I was playing First-person shooters in the last couple of days. So I drop it beside the windows for a bit of boost. The battle for charging continues for about a week, eventually, the keyboard only works when I place it under a desk lamp. I then do a bit of google-ing.

The battery inside the keyboard is a Maxell ML2032, Different from a regular CR2032 that's found on most PC motherboard, the ML2032 is a rechargeable model. The ML2032 has a rechargeable life cycle of 10% at 1000 times or 20% at 300 times. So in a desirable environment (where it rarely lose charges), people can use it for a year or 2 without problem. However frequently, many user like myself will hit that limit in 5 to 8 months time.

And when the battery dies, you can:
1. Treat it like a pure solar power keyboard. Don't let it gets dark.
2. Replace the battery, say eBay for £6 every 6 months?
3. Contact Logitech and with the 3 year warranty. It has the privilege to travel around once every 5 to 8 months?

I've decided to go for the new battery. With the new battery, Day 1, it says 100%. Day 2, it says 70%. Day 3, 40%, I leave it on a sun facing windows for 3 hours and pump the battery back up to 59%. I don't know, I might have to contact Logitech soon if the battery level doesn't improve.

At the main time, I'm using a £5 wired keyboard.
I hate to say, I never expect I would be in this situation after I've spent that £40+ on a Keyboard. Which I hope it would last more than 4 years...

Update: Apparently, there seems to be 2 version of this keyboard. One equipped with 3v ML2303 which seems to be an older version (also far less reliable). Then there's another one equipped with 3.6v LiR2032 which seems less likely to die within 4 to 8 months.

I am very pleased with this keyboard. Very comfy to write on. I am just missing one key.. so instead the [FN] key could be [Menu] button.
But I think its just matter of time to get use to it.

There is no need for instaling any software .. works straightaway since connecting receiver.
Just additonaly you can install power monitor.
If you dont use it, you can switch it off .. and its just charging.
My room I would say is more dark but battery level didnt go below 100% and I dont switch this keyboard off at all.

I have managed to spill some sugary water on few keys which become slow and harder to push. I have easy removed buttons and cleaned with water and It works again.

I use this keyboard just to write so I have no gaming experience with it.
Money well spend for me :D

Think I'm in Love...
with The Thinnest...Slimmest...Sleekest...Sexiest keyboard I have ever had the pleasure of using...and with Looks to match Angelina Jolie...!!! yes, that's right, I can only be talking about Logitech's Solar Powered K750 Keyboard...!!! No more Batteries...Cordless...and...Solar Powered...what more could one ask for...

Set up...
could not be any more simple...helping to keep the planet green...Logitech has put much thought into what they are doing...No CD...No Booklet...information is printed on the inside of the packaging your key board arrived in...very good Logitech...I like it...Plug in a small USB Receiver...switch on the key board... automatically download the software needed...way-to-go...!!! Everything else you need is on Logitech's website...Troubleshooting...Product Support...Support Community...and more...

Quality...Design...and Great Style at it's best...
if you appreciate good craftsmanship, you will love Logitech's K750 Solar Powered key board...it just oozes quality...at an amazing 7.5mm thin, it still feels very solidly manufactured...I have lifted it up one handed from one end of the key board, with no signs of flexing whatsoever...I applaud the design guys working for Logitech, they have come up with a very fresh, very contemporary and well thought out design, while keeping the functional side of things at the top of their list... they seem to have...Almost*** perfected perfection...

The low profile keys...
give the user a very smooth and quiet operation...no matter how fast I type, I cannot see any time lag in "key" to "screen" operation...with an array of short cut keys across the top adds a tick in the right box...The ability to customise or should I say personalise the short cut "F" keys is yet another...tick in the right box...buy it...and you will see...!!! (separate download needed from website for that operation)...underneath the key board you will find two legs one at either end to pull out just in case you prefer to tip the keys towards you on a slight angle...

The power...
with a one touch operation, you will see on screen, how much light your key board is receiving, and how much back up power you have in store...in Logitech's write up, it is said to last for a whopping three months if you were to use the key board in total darkness...!!!

Almost*** "perfected perfection"...
OK...this is just a small thing, but thought it worth a mention...if you want to increase or decrease the speaker volume, you hold down the toggle key while pressing F10 or F11...now then...my thought is... if the numeric keys on the right hand side of the board, were set in from the edge of the board, towards the Left lets say, by about one key space, there would then be enough room for a volume control, just like Logitech's diNovo Edge...just slide your finger up or down on the key board to control the sound volume...Perfected Perfection...!!!

The price...well...I think for what I have have here...having on numerous occasions, caressed it...Looked at it...admired it...stroked it...cleaned it...having used it and tested it...Logitech could have easily added £20.00 or more to the price...I also have a Logitech "DiNovo Edge and when I purchased that little beauty it cost me £150.00. and you have to charge a battery...!

So to finish on a positive...
the K750 Solar Powered Keyboard from Logitech...is in my opinion...a Super Build...oozing with Quality...and a good spec...it's a great piece of hardware...it really is a dream to use...even if your typing speed isn't up to two hundred words per minute...!!! Congratulations Logitech...I think you have a winner...I await with bated breath and much anticipation...for the arrival of your..."Solar Powered Pen and Graphics Tablet" for all us Boys and Girls that play with software such as Photoshop or similar...Now that would be a God Send...don't you agree...?

Have a nice day...The Photographer on The Isle of Wight UK...

At first I didn't realize, but when typing something that required a £ symbol I discovered that the keyboard is not UK spec! I have since gone back to my Apple wired keyboard as, in addition to the Logitech being none UK spec, I don't really like the feel of the keys - they feel a little "plasticky" and the travel is too far (compared to the Apple keyboard.
Additionally, the supplier didn't supply a vat receipt - which I need as this was a company purchase - I have since been in touch with Amazon and they say they will contact the supplier and request one. All in all, not a good experience.

EDIT: Update almost 5 months on of using this keyboard. I'm still incredibly happy with it, and in fact think it's one of the best keyboards I've ever used. I used to go for Razer gaming keyboards and have used a variety of them for Gaming and General use.

The keyboard power supply rarely drops, only will if you're working in a dark area with a poor light source for prolonged periods. I've taken to using this keyboard as my work keyboard too now. I work as a programmer, so as you can imagine I have a lot of typing to do. It is incredibly important for me to have a keyboard that doesn't feel like a chore to type on. Still ridiculously happy with this keyboard and will probably keep using this until they perhaps release an updated shinier version :D Will say though it does pick up finger marks and various other marks, I just give it a wipe with a duster with some polish on every so often and it seems to do the trick.

/EDIT

I was looking for a good wireless keyboard and this doesn't dissapoint. If you have ever typed on a mac keyboard, the key layout and feel is very similar to that. Personally I love the spacing and the feel of mac keyboards so this was really quite good. No problems with delay or any weird behaviour when typing. I can touch type so it is important for me to be comfortable typing fast on a keyboard. Granted I've only had it about 4 days, but so far I love it.

Pro's:

Ultra slim
Nice key feel and layout
Good response
Power reserve has stayed at 100% with 4 days of heavy use
Just with my bedroom light on this keyboard stays at 100%

Cons:

If i was to be really picky, the finish on it attracts a lot of dust and finger marks
The legs on the stand seem flimsy (holding up though) but they don't look like they would take much to break

I've used Logitech keyboards before and was previously using a Razer keyboard. This is fantastic.

Wireless keyboards are great until the batteries run out, at which point the become intensely frustrating. Not any more. This solar-powered keyboard manages to extract enough charge from household/office lighting to run almost for ever without running it's batteries down. Even better, it works with Logitech's unifying dongle, so there's no need for a growing collection of USB receivers.

It's a full-sized keyboard with a VERY slimline profile - barely 10mm thick, the keys are low profile, extremely quite and have a nice, positive action. The front of the keyboard is a gloss black with arrays of solar panels built in, sitting just above the Function keys. The underneath is "Apple" white with some small legs that can be flipped out to give about an 8degree rake to the keyboard, which some may prefer given it's extremely slim (and consequently low) profile. I prefer to use it flat on the desk and would probably worry about the robustness of the fold-out legs as they seem to be rather delicate.

It's quite a heavy keyboard - certainly heavier than it's thickness would suggest. This combined with the thin profile leaves it feeling a little "breakable" - like a thick circuit board. This, coupled with it's full width, means that it's not well suited to portable computing.

It comes with the usual array of extra functions keys, programmable using the LogiTech SetPoint software. I';ve found that the standard functions work well enough for me and haven't needed to customise anything. There's an easily accessible On/Off switch on the front of the keyboard to save power when you're not using it for extended periods, but to be honest, unless it's going to be in total darkness for the whole time, you're probably fine to leave it switched on. There's also a button to check the light levels - if there's enough light to run the keyboard and charge the inbuilt battery then a green LED lights up for 2 seconds - if the light's too dim the LED indicator shows up red.

The packaging suggests that this is likely one of the most environmentally friendly keyboards you can get - I'd be inclined to believe them Everything in the packaging is recyclable cardboard (probably recyclable recycled cardboard) and the solar charging means that it will save a LOT on batteries. The slimline desgin means there's a minimal amount of plastic used and the qwhole thing has a real feel of care and quality about it.

It's easily the nicest, quietest and most comfortable keyboard I've ever used and it gets lots of admiring glances and comments in the office. If you're in the market for a full-sized wireless keyboard you can't go far wrong with this. Highly recommended.

Having had one of these for the last year, I looked to buy another one after an unfortunate accident broke my current one.
However after 2 deliveries and various emails it looks that Amazon only have the US version, not the UK one pictured in listing.

Great keyboard, solar function excellent, connectivity no problem.
Just be aware if you want a UK layout, to shop elsewhere.

I ordered one of these keyboards from Morning Bell through Amazon because the price was very competitive. However, on delivery I was very disappointed to discover that it was a US keyboard layout. No £ sign, @ in the wrong place etc. which make it difficult to work with. The images associated with the product show a UK version, but there is no option to specify what sort of keyboard you want. Poor show and a royal pain in the ar$e! I'd like the opportunity to resolve this by speaking to Morning Bell and ideally replace it with the correct version, but there is no option in this automated/no-personal interaction environment.
