Nice keyboard.

Will be a dust magnet, though.

Monitor is a Hazro HZ24Wi, pretty old now but still great for what I need it for (games and photo editing).

Nice keyboard.

It may will be, will have to see over the next few days but thankfully it's very easy to clean and a dribble of Mr Sheen will keep dust away for a while at least!

Good review!

I just got mine this week :) I installed it at work as I didn't need another keyboard at home and so far so good. The typing is a lot better than on my old keyboard :p

(I got mine from a contest here at Neowin :))

Haha yeah I won as well. :p

Great keyboard, keys are nice to use and it's generally comfortable. Has a US key layout so I have to adjust to it. :p

3 questions

1- Does it charge if you set the keyboard to the Off position?
2- How much Lux (approx) would a monitor screen give off? Would it be enough to charge? Even if its slowly.
3- Lastly I wanted to know if a room with strong light outside filtered through blinds would be enough as well?

As above :p

My battery is still reporting 100% and my monitors + corner energy saving lamp stand provides 15 lux of luminance. This must be enough to charge it in use and off use as I've used the board quite heavily since purchase now!

Will have to see if they have one that would replace my diNovo Mac Edition. That looks really nice. :yes:

Great review :)

I've been looking for this keyboard for some time now but can't find it for sale anywhere in Canada. Even Logitech's website doesn't have the option to add it to your cart :\

I've been using an Apple Keyboard for a few years now and love the chiclet layout (I type like crap on non-chiclet keyboards now). I wanted a wireless version, but sadly the Apple wireless KB doesn't have a numpad, which I would quite possibly die without. The K750 looks like the perfect replacement.

The only thing I don't like is the lack of a CAPS led. My laptop is the same and it drives me up the wall.
