3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Oct 25, 2010

THE GOOD: NiMH batteries recharge with Micro USB cable; automatic and adjustable backlit keys; Unifying Receiver connects multiple devices using single plug; PerfectStroke key system offers uniform tactile feedback. THE BAD: Thin profile allows sacrifices design for durability. THE BOTTOM LINE: The Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800 is a worthwhile refresh with updates that include a Unifying receiver for consolidated USB port access, rechargeable AA NiMH batteries, and Logitechs comfortable PerfectStroke key design. If you do your typing in the dark, the adjustable backlit Wireless K800 wont disappoint.

Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Oct 25, 2010

The Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800 is a mid-range to high-end keyboard with laser-etched, backlit keys. It offers manual backlight adjustment as well as automatic adjustment based on lighting conditions while its hand proximity detection turns lighting back on automatically when needed. Additionally, the K800s PerfectStroke key system ensures quiet, smooth typing. The K800 allows users to define a set lighting level for keys but by default features automatic backlighting adjustment based on in-room lighting conditions, resulting in optimal lighting levels and minimal battery use. Its hand proximity detection allows the K800 to be turned on just before you type, making it easy to find and use in the dark. Meanwhile, the K800s PerfectStroke key system distributes typing force evenly across each keys surface, resulting in comfortable, quiet typing. Features Laser-etched, backlit keys Automatic and manual backlight adjustment Auto-off with hand proximity detection PerfectStroke key system ensures quiet, smooth typing Fast, easy recharging via microUSB (3-6 ... PROS: (1) manual backlight adjustments in 25% increments (2) Dual connectivity via wireless or USB (3) quiet keys similar to those found on notebook PCs (4) Rechargeable via USB after approximately 10 days of use (5) automatic backlight adjustments based on hand proximity ... CONS: (1) keys have a smooth, potentially slippery surface (2) matte finished palm rest has a tenancy to show marks left by hands (3) palm rest is small, and might not be comfortable for all users (4) overpriced

5 Star Review  intellireview.com - Aug 3, 2011

PROS:Wireless, Paired receiver also works with selected Logitech products simultaneously, Ergonomic design, Batteries included. CONS:Installed batteries tend to run out rather quickly and may need to be replaced before long. REVIEW:The Logitech K800 Wireless Keyboard relies on 2.4 GHz of wireless interface for a smooth, drop-free user experience that nearly simulates the reliability of using a wired keyboard. Its keys are laid out on a thin shell in a combination of matte and glossy black

1 Star Review   By RickSD on HP - Nov 22, 2012   

Loved the look and concept, but was so disappointed when the battery just would not hold a charge. Checked with the Logitech folks and they ran me through the motions to confirm it was dead then anknowledged sometimes this happens! Disappointing quality control.

BEST KEYBOARD YET!
5 Star Review   By azloafer on HP - Sep 15, 2012   

I got my first computer in 1990 so I have gone through many keyboards and mice. This is the best keyboard that I have ever owned. The feel of the keys is different than all my others. This is not a toy with plastic clacking, it's a man's keyboard..OK I suppose a lady might like it too. I am a night- owl and I don't like to keep a lot of lights on when I am working on the pc late at night so the illuminated feature is made for me. The really odd thing is that I contacted a store that sells Logitech Products and I asked about an illuminated keyboard. I was told that the batteries would wear out and I would be buying them by the gross so they don't sell any. I searched HP and sure enough they had a rechargable illuminated keyboard! Shouldn't everyone know about a great product like this. If you are thinking about a new keyboard, don't hesitate, just buy this one and you won't be sorry. The light comes on by sensing your hands being near. The light adjusts to the ambient light in the room. The keyboard is also silent as you type. You can type in a completely dark room if you want. I enter online sweepstakes for a hobby so I use my keyboard a lot. You will love it.

Best key board we have ever owned
5 Star Review   By VTiger on HP - May 11, 2012   

Best key board we have ever owned over the 20 plus years of computer use. It is a little more expensive but is worth every penny.

5 Star Review   By robin123 on HP - Mar 21, 2012   

I was using a laptop with an external monitor and the keyboard was the laptop. This meant that I had my head positioned to one side all day while I spent most of my time looking. My chiroprator visits started to increase, so I ditched the 20" monitor, got a sweet new 25" monitor and this keyboard and moved the laptop off my desk. Now my body is positioned good for hours of software development work. Why I'm happy: 1) Hate cords, love wireless where it makes sense 2) Love the feature that allows you to recharge your keyboard from USB. I've gone a month without recharging 3) Love the backlit keyboard that senses when your hands are near. I prefer a dark lit room to work in. 4) Love that the front edge slants nicely into your table top, so you don't need a wrist pad.

Runaway Keyboard
2 Star Review   By OldGuy71 on HP - Dec 3, 2011   

The new K800 wireless, backlit keyboard is great looking and has a good fairly good typing feel (it DOES require a positive stroke -- not as light as I expected), but on my XP SP3 Dell system, it has a totally annoying habit of frequently (like every 50 strokes or so) of running away with a letter. And once it starts it is hard to stop. It also will switch to Overtype mode on it's own. I'm not a touch typist, and have to look at the keys to type, and it is really aggravating to lose already-typed text when trying to insert new text. The keyboard is now in its box, awaiting a call to Logitech.

Logitek K800 Keyboard
4 Star Review   By jweaver74 on HP - Nov 16, 2011   

I am pleased with this keyboard with one exception. It seems to have more 'bounce' than the hard-wired keyboard which came with my computer. Perhaps I need a lighter touch than that required for the prior keyboard. I got the hot keys programmed and they work properly. I especially like the ability to work in the dark - no monitor glare. Would I recommend this. Yes, but you will have to adjust how you strike the keys.

Just What I Wanted in a Keyboard
5 Star Review   By COLMac on HP - Feb 3, 2011   

Two things bothered me about my old keyboard: 1. The cord often got in the way. 2. I never took Typing class in high school, thus I have to look at the keyboard when I type. Unfortunately, in my office, I had a hard time seeing the keys on my old keyboard later in the day. Yes, I would turn on my desk lamp for more light; however, the glare from the lamp off the keys did not help the situation. I had to lean my head to one side to to avoid the glare. I drove on despite both problems. Neither were so bad that I cared that much. Then I received the Logitech K800 Keyboard - Wireless as a gift. No more cord. It does not limit how I use my desk space and now I can put the keyboard anywhere when I am not using it -- in a cabinet drawer or on its side on a bookshelf! The keyboard recharges via a USB cord, thus it is corded while recharging, but I do that overnight. I do not know how long the battery retains its charge, but it's now early February and I've only had to recharge it once since late December...and I use it practically all day, every day. No more problems with low light. I simply wave my hand over the keyboard and the backlit keys light up. The first time I experienced that feature: "WOW!" The coolness factor is high. Now I do not need to turn on the light if I am not inclined to do so. I've encountered a two things in life that I did not know I needed until I actually had them: One was prescription sunglasses and the other is this keyboard. Another unexpected nice thing about this keyboard is how thin it is. I did not really need it to be thin, but it is. Its lack of bulk helps with stashing it away when I am not using it. Also, it tapers down to practically nothing on the front edge which seems very ergonomical. I submit this review willingly and without any prompting either from HP or Logitech. I am just a project manager whose appreciates a terrific tool.
