Sorry going of-topic here but who are interested in or have used this i would like a feedback before buying it...

When i saw keyboards liike these it reminds me of laptop keyboards and i hate those keyboards ...always preferred the typical keyboard or mechanical keyboard style keyboards...

Logitech is claming these keyboards are better , natural, fluid, precise...

Are they a step above then traditional keyboards or atleast the similar.
In terms of having that feeling when u type.
P.S. : if you find lots of spelling mistakes in my above comment. This is what happens when you use the physical Keyboard (Blackberry) your whole life and then you have to settle with a virtual Keyboard.

I have had one for over a year now and am extremely happy with it. Being able to quickly swap between different synced devices is super helpful for my workflow.

Is the battery life actually only 10 days?

I have a K350 and my experience is the two AA last me about 18 months (I'm on year 7 or 8 now...)

I have the keyboard. I'd say about 2 weeks with backlight on. The keyboard is rechargeable by USB C.

Can anybody in really few words point out why it’s a good keyboard?

Satisfying key strokes. Ability to connect up to 3 devices. Rechargeable.

One annoyance: I have the mx mouse as well and they don’t switch devices together at the click of one button. They need to be independently switched over.

FWIW, Dell was actually selling it for $119 ($10 off) just a couple of days ago, but Rakuten CB was only 2 or 2.5% at that time. This is a better deal at 14%.

If this is like the K810, if you turn off the backlight battery life would be phenomenal (several months before needing a charge).

I have the MX Master 3 and MX Keys, and this is definitely not possible. I've been looking for a solution for weeks now.

He's likely talking about Logitech Flow, which let's you switch from one laptop to another by dragging the mouse over "and the keyboard follows", which only works if both laptops are on the same network. What the person above mentioned is wanting to switch over both devices by hitting the device swap button on the keyboard, as the device swap button on the mouse is a little button under the mouse.

Setting flow is the way to go.
Why manual switch, if there is flow option?

I bought this keyboard during boxing day and have been using it everyday since then without having to charge. I believe they claim 5 months of charge with backlight turned off, and 10 days of charge with backlight on.

If you leave this plugged in I'm guessing it still communicates via BT or dongle and not via USB?

I have this keyboard.

If I communicate via dongle, the F2 key does not respond in time to get me into my Dell desktop’s BIOS settings. Plugged in via USB it does.

I believe that to mean it uses the cord for communication when plugged in...
