4.0 out of 5 stars Grown To Like It, 20 April 2012
This review is from: Logitech K360 Wireless Keyboard - Black (Accessory)
If it wasn't for the slight rock on the less than perfect back struts this would have been easily a 5 out of 5 review ... as it is 4.5 out of 5.

I bought this keyboard online, because I already had a logitech mouse with USB unifier and wanted a keyboard for heavy text work with my laptop. I bought Logitech M325 Wireless Mouse - Victorian Wallpaper with USB unifier at PC World but a month later they were clearly no longer interested in selling Logitech kit (or anything judging by the terrible, terrible service) despite the fact they had assured me I could add a keyboard later. So, I was playing that dangerous game for someone who needs a certain quality in their keyboard; I was taking pot luck by buying blind without testing it out first.

Initially I was very disappointed. The keyboard felt cheap, especially the all important key action and the struts at the back somehow contrive to actually NOT give a stable, angled board but leave a definite and annoying wobble when typing with the struts down on a flat surface.

Eventually I came to do some work which required a lot of text typed quickly and I decided to give the K360 another go as my (very good) laptop keyboard wasn't quite up to the job ... nor was my back up to bending over a laptop keyboard for the time the work would take. As I typed I became more familiar with the rather subtle keyboard action and consequently my speed began to increase. And increase. Eventually I was flying along at great speed and accuracy and found the key layout to be totally logical with every key more or less exactly where you want it to be and where there are slight differences to a full blown desk top keyboard the good design means you adapt to these very, very quickly.

The excellent logitech USB unifier worked from the off and I had no trouble 'tuning' this keyboard in with my existing unifier from my Logitech M325 Wireless Mouse - Victorian Wallpaper (5 out of 5) and tucking away the unifier that came with the keyboard as a backup unit.

While this is never going to reeplace my fully active 20 year old IBM keyboard for professional typists that I have attached to my desktop, it is perfectly good for heavy work away from home with my laptop ... for god knows how much less, as the IBM keyboard, if you could buy that quality at all today today, would be at least 10 times the price of this K360.
