Pass on my compliments to the person who thought up the Logitech logo'd pull tab which slid her out of the box and into my waiting hand. Her clear plastic cover showed connection and on buttons, and it connected easily to OS X Lion. Keys are finger sized and bouncy, distinctly clickly.
Always thought I'd missed an opportunity when I skipped touch typing classes to learn programming a few decades back. But something about the two hands didn't click with me. But my K 811? She winks at me when I click.
I opened it this morning, and it was a good keyboard by day, but it lights up when I approach after dark and twinkles under my clicks as the shadow of one hand dances so accurately over the keys that I don't need to see the screen. (Still need to look for programming, but I'm not looking for this.) That's what's wrong with "touch typing" [sic] - looking for mistakes on the screen instead of accuracy in the touch. Ain't no use trying to fool my brain into thinking the words is up there somewhere when I can see them down here. I'm now able to type fast enough to change the word I'm typing while still typing the word and not lose flow, which is fast enough for me.
A+++, but will not buy again. (Well, maybe as a backup.)
My only issue with this keyboard is its price, and I was very impressed with the K760, which is half the price. The K760 still switches between devices and it's solar powered, meaning you never have to charge it, unlike this keyboard, which has to be charged via microUSB every now and then. The price is understandable though, as I would say it's the best keyboard for Mac.
The blue tooth switch works really well and I think that this is the only USP that justifies it's price. Be aware though that the Target display mode function will not work with this keyboard. I contacted Logitech customer support via phone and they are yet to respond as promised. It appears to be a known issue/missing feature with all 3rd party keyboards as far aS I can tell. I have a workaround to get my iMac into Target Display mode for my Mac Pro using a cheap wired mouse as a sort of "switch" via keyboard maestro. Will add details if anyone is interested. All the other functions work well though and it is still much more convenient and less desk cluttering than having 2 keyboards - although a lot more expensive! It also seemlessly switches between my ipad and even android phone.
I would certainly recommend this keyboard but only if the switchable blue tooth function is a significant factor in your requirements, otherwise I think it's a struggle to justify the expense.
I use this keyboard with my Mac at work. At the end of the day, I toss it in my bag, and use it in the train or at a cafe with my iPad. I'll even use with the iPhone occasionally to return an iMessage or send a longer email, just because it's so easy to switch between the three devices.
The feel of the keyboard isn't the best, especially if you're used to mechanical keyboards (I am), but it's good enough. Plus, the consistent experience of typing across devices using the same keyboard actually makes up for the inferior tactile feedback, at least for me. The keys aren't mushy, but there's no click, either.
Despite being treated roughly and used for hours each day, it's held up beautifully. It's scratched up and has a couple of good dents, but every key works, the battery life is incredible, and it never drops connection.
Being self-contained and rechargeable is a killer feature, as is the simple touch of having a real on/off switch. The Apple wireless keyboard would get switched on accidentally in my bag, causing havoc with random keypresses etc. That doesn't happen with the K811.
