It used to come with replaceable AA batteries, now since a resign, the battery is built-in (non replaceable) and holds far less charge than the 2500 mAh batteries you could put in.
I used to love and trust logitech, but this will be the last keyboard I buy from them, since they now effectively force you to send the keyboard in, or buy a new keyboard, when the battery starts to degrade and fails to hold charge.
Seems like a con to me now, to get more money out of you, when you used to be able to just replace them yourself.
I'm done with Logitech completely now.
I bought the K800 wireless keyboard as I wanted a backlit keyboard and already have a wireless Logitech trackman wheel mouse.
The keyboard has a good weight but, after only about 6 months of light, home use (I am not a gamer!), keys started to stick. This was annoying but I could live with it. After about 12 months, keys stopped working altogether starting with the G key and then a few others.
For a premium priced keyboard from a previously reliable manufacturer, this is unacceptable and I cannot recommend this keyboard hence 1 star.
Update May 2019:
I got a replacement for this keyboard from Amazon as the original was faulty so thanks to Amazon but my opinion has not changed,
Logitech have now changed the design so the batteries are no longer replaceable: well done Logitech! Now, when the batteries fail, the keyboard is junk! Also, I have had instances where the key back light has suddenly started flashing for no good reason so I will not be using the keyboard.
Beware: Not up to Logitech's previous standards.
Now it uses built in buttons that cannot be changed so when they die so does the keyboard.
Battery life - well fully charged with 3 lights, one goes out after 4 - 6 hours of use and the others with 15 or less.
I thought the one I got three months ago was defective so order a replacement (for which I am STILL waiting for a refund) but this replacement is no better. Of course having the lights on does not help but as I run under Linux I cannot use their windoz software to turn them off.
The lights can be turned off by using FN + F5 to reduce light and you can turn them off completely by repeating the key press and this dramatically improves battery life but still way below that of the AA rechargeables.
For the price I would EXPECT replaceable batteries with a good 14 - 21 days of life.
Note I am not a gamer but do program so I am on the keys for a good 6+ hours per day.
If you are the same seriously consider any other model or brand.
Logitech quality has gone down over the recent year or so - I will not be continuing with them and like wise my company.
Cannot afford to have these silly issues with a keyboard !!!
The advantages of it are:-
It is wireless.
It shares a single 'unifying’ receiver with the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mouse that I already had
The two items can also share a single charging cable (although, as with the receiver, each comes with its own).
The keyboard is illuminated, with variable light intensity and a very responsive on/off mechanism depending on whether you are actually using the keyboard.
It is solidly built, with a very full set of keys, all of a good size.
The function keys access a large set of functions that are actually useful.
And, hopefully, the 'etched’ keys will resist wear for a good long time, such that they remain both legible and attractive in appearance. It looks as if they might.
Each of these is only a small advantage, but together they add up to quite a lot.
Previously, I had a Logitech keyboard that was similar but wired. I don’t know how old it was/is; I was given it second-hand. Its keys are worn, but otherwise it is OK (and I am keeping it as a spare). However, this one is more solid, and it certainly looks as if the keys are more robust.
Setting it up was easy – essentially just a matter of plug-and-play, although I did have to re-boot my computer to get it to find it. That was with Windows 7; I have yet to upgrade to Windows 10.
The batteries are a pair of rechargeable Ni-mh AAs, so user replaceable at modest cost if and when the need arises. Meanwhile, (bearing in mind the illuminated keys) it is remarkable how much use they support before needing a re-charge. That being said, the battery condition indicator falls short of ideal. Most of the time it says 'fully-charged', but then the 'must re-charge' crisis situation arises suddenly. It may be in the nature of the Ni-mh batteries to fall-off very rapidly. If so, the positive side is that they give maximum power for a good long time before finally tailing-off very steeply.
One other downside: the 'feet' at the rear for giving the keyboard forward tilt disengage themselves whenever the keyboard is pushed away from you. One of the advantages of a wireless keyboard is that you can move it around more than a wired keyboard, but this (presumably unintended) feature discourages that. Even without the feet in use, though, the keyboard has a built-in tilt that is likely to be good enough most of the time for most users - including me.
In view of the steep battery fade and feet that disengage themselves, I hovered over 4 stars, not 5. But then I put my wired Logitech keyboard back into use temporarily whilst charging the batteries on this one (strictly speaking, not necessary; you can type whilst charging) and (worse yet!) visited a couple of high street banks (yes two, HSBC and Halifax) and saw the keyboards the poor souls there were labouring on. I was even handed the HSBC rattletrap to enter my e-mail address. (Both the bank keyboards were simply bog-standard wired keyboards that would have come with the computers a few years back.) No, this wireless Logitech keyboard is another world, especially by comparison. I won't be going back.*
The warranty is for three years.
* A couple of further random thoughts.
1) A decent 'wired' keyboard has to still be possible. I also use an HP G62 laptop - 5 years old now and still good - with integral keyboard (of course) and that, frankly, is just as nice to use as the Logitech wireless, with no significant wear on the keys. There are shiny patches on the most-used keys, but no loss of legibility of the letters.
2) How similar HSBC and Halifax are once you get upstairs to see an 'advisor'! Similar interview cubicles, similar desks and chairs, similar computers, the same choice of drinks from apparently identical machines......
