Logitech K750 Solar Powered Wireless Keyboard Review

When I'm not writing my Graduate thesis, I'm writing reviews for CinemaFunk and ProgSnobs, so I write a lot. Keyboards tend to last a long time, but the common computer keyboard derived directly from the TypeWriter. Now that the last typewriter has left the factory, perhaps we too can make changes to how our keyboards are designed.

Wait! Apple already did that with their low-profile chicklet keyboards. Too bad I use custom-built PC. That's where Logitech found a niche and produced the fantastic K750 Solar Powered Wireless Keyboard. I needed a wireless keyboard because I was tired of wires everywhere! This keyboard has the chicklet button design that Apple users admire, perfect for a typist. It allows for the user to spend less energy hitting keys because each key is about quarter of the height. Now you 'press' rather than 'mash' keys. So two features that kick ass!

Last but not least, is the solar panel that allows you to almost forget about batteries. I like to work in very dark rooms, cave like actually. But I've never had issues with powering the keyboard, sometimes the light from the computer monitor is enough. But you do not have to worry about being in light very much because the battery holds enough power for days of work. The battery is a proprietary Logitech battery that I'm guessing has to be replaced after heavy use.

I've had this keyboard for roughly 10 months now, and I couldn't be happier. I hope it lasts as I see no reason to upgrade for nearly a decade.
