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.


Yea same here, been watching this board since its first showing, no where in Canada has it, and no US sites have it or won't ship here. Annoying. I really want it.

That would have put me off the keyboard itself. But due to Dell's QuickSet software that comes install on their laptops, a notification appears in the system tray whenever Caps Lock is on, which also is designed to fit in with the Windows 7 tray.

I think the Caps Lock key is long overdue to be removed TBH. I don't know anyone who relies on its use day in day out and can imagine the only people who will need it are the always angry and need to vent their spleen on the internet :p

Everyone else can just hold SHIFT to type a word in CAPS!

But yeah, lack of indicator means having to install OSD software such as Setpoint (which is good anyway so worth it) or some other 3rd party app just for that purpose.

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!



Fantastic! I was the same as you, I couldn't find a decent review that talks much about the charging and light levels required. Now I do and I'll get this as my next keyboard :D

Battery right now is reading 98% - This is probably due to my first weekend with it and having used it the whole weekend! I would expect the battery to go back to 100% or maybe 99% in normal ambient daylight so when I get home from work it's recharged.

Will see!

loving that solar panel shot of the keyboard!

something about the amber coloured gradient matching the background, and the keys surrounding it...

I just posted a product request for the K750 on NCIX's forums, let's see what they say :)

I think I've got a way to order this in Canada :)

I simply took the URL of the "Add to Cart" button from a different product on the Logitech Canada page, and replaced the Product ID# in the URL with that of the K750 on the US website. Voila, added to cart and listed as In Stock!

tl;dr;dgadjgtl Use this link: https://buy.logitech.com/store/logib2c/AddItemRefID/pageType.shoppingCart/externalRefID.920-002912/Locale.en_ca/quantity.1&ccp=30-7454-7454-920-002912&cl=ca,en

Now, whether or not the order will go through... we'll soon find out :)
