Logitech K800 Keyboard Is Enlightening Wireless Experience

If you thought Logitech's MK700 wireless keyboard's concave keys were good but just too dark, the illuminated K800 will be a spot of sunshine. Yep! A spot of relatively pricey sunshine.

The 10 days of use on one charge sounds peppy as well, though presumably that number doesn't factor in heavy illumination. The included micro-USB cable should ease the burden of charging though.

in the room using ambient light sensors. Motion sensors detect your hands as they approach to

you'll enjoy bright, precise illumination and more battery life - up to 10 days of battery

the onboard batteries.

Because a good keyboard needs to deliver a good typing experience, the Logitech Wireless

Illuminated keyboard includes the PerfectStroke™ key system and Logitech Incurve keys™.

The PerfectStroke key system helps make every stroke comfortable, fluid and whisper-

quiet. And the concave design and softly rounded edges of the durable Logitech Incurve keys
