I would love something like this due to power issues but I have a light allergy so I never have any lights on when I am in the room. Good review though.

Love the review, and am very tempted. Logitech have always made great products in my experience.

Can anyone tell me if the keyboard is silent?

Hopefully Logitech will come up with a version that has illuminated keys, however I'm going stick with my grossly overpriced MS Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000 for now.

Thanks for the quick response. I'm very tempted to give up ms and get this.

MS also do a great keyboard that has a low profile and is virtually silent, the Bluetooth 6000 (I think), it's curvy and Bluetooth, so the fact that it uses Bluetooth may put you off (It did for me, considering my laptop doesn't have it built in).

I've seen this in sore and checked it out a few times, nice KB but the bluetooth is off-putting and it's a pretty cramped layout!

My current MS keyboard is bluetooth and their transceivers aren't very reliable. I believe my 8000 keyboard (http://www.microsoft.../docs/we8k.html) is still a better choice over the Bluetooth 6000. The problem with the 8000 is the signal needs to be constantly reconnected in order to use the bluetooth capability which I use for my palm TX.

his review pushed me over the edge into buying the keyboard. It's a little less spacious than my Microsoft Desktop 3000 keyboard, but I love how silent it is and, obviously, the solar aspect. Also loving finally putting my Unifying receiver, from my Performance Mouse MX to use with another Logitech product.

I think the unifying receiver is one of the best bits of the modern peripheral, not only does it save you USB ports but it's also tiny and best of all it's not bluetooth :p

I bought the keyboard and a Logitech Marathon Mouse, so hopefully my days of changing my rechargeable batteries is over! :D

PS: Hasn't gone down from 100% battery since I got it thanks to having light always in my lounge room even when I'm at work. (Y)

I don't know whether having the keyboard off means it can't charge (considering it's solar I guess it doesn't matter) but my battery is at 31% in a moderately well lit room. This is a coherent problem with the room I have here, it faces the sun in the morning, so I get little light throughout the day.

I guess during the day I'll leave my desk lamp on shining onto the keyboard so it can charge itself tomorrow.

Doesn't that go against the point of a solar keyboard? Would be way more efficient to just charge it from the mains.
