  • Very good dedicated Mac Keyboard
    Reviewed by emiliosic - July 18, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The MX (Master) series from Logitech includes premium keyboards and mouse oriented for work applications. It works best when used with a mouse from the MX series to take full advantage of the Flow software when used with two or three computers at the same time. While all the keyboards in the series works with Mac, this is the first that's specifically targeted for macs. The main differences are the mac-only keyboard layout and 'Space Gray' finish. Otherwise it's functionally identical to the regular MX Series keyboard. Opening the packaging for the first time feels different: There is no plastic in the packaging, and the keyboard is wrapped in gift tissue paper. Very nice that they're mindful of not adding unnecessary plastic. There's also an USB-C to USB-C cable and an USB adapter, that for some reason it's USB-A. The keyboard layout is arranged similarly to Apple full-size keyboards. The keyboard is all plastic, the 'Space Gray' finish is actually painted plastic. It does look great and had to double-take. It looks like aluminum but it's not. The layout uses 'island' keys that feel similar to a laptop keyboard: The keys are slightly separated, with a limited travel compared to mechanical keys, but much better than Apple's laptop keyboards. The keys are also concave, which I really like. It's not indented like older keyboards. It has a circular 'bowl' on the center of the keys that helps with touch typing. Backlight: Every key, including function keys are backlit. The backlight has 7 levels that are controlled via Fn keys. The keyboard includes a 'proximity sensor' so the light turns on when hands approach the keyboard (before touching it), and turn off soon after. It should also adjust intensity based on ambient light although I did not notice the difference. Logitech sells an optional wrist pad designed specifically for this keyboard. I have no idea why they sell it separately, not part of the keyboard. The keyboard charges a built-in battery via the USB-C port. Based on previous experience with other Logitech keyboards, it should last months without the backlight, but with the backlight I noticed the battery lost about 30% in a week. Connectivity: It can either use the Logitech unifying USB receiver, or it supports Bluetooth 5.0 LE. The Unifying receiver can connect to up to 6 devices simultaneously, like other Logitech keyboards and mouse. The connection via the USB receiver is extremely reliable, and one receiver works with both keyboard and mouse. I've used these for years on previous keyboards. The keyboard has three buttons to switch devices it connects to, or if using a compatible Logitech mouse, enable Flow to seamlessly switch between devices. This keyboard supports flow when used with the Logitech MX Vertical mouse, and it works between macOS and Windows 10. It requires Wi-Fi connection between the two or three computers for Flow to work. If using Linux, Android or iOS, it has to be switched via dedicated keys (On top of the control keys). The software is 'Logitech Flow' and it's available through Logitech (for free, with no registration). It also checks firmware on the keyboard, and other fine-tuning settings. It's not available through Apple's App Store. The software also bundles the 'Logitech Unifying' software that can be used to pair and unpair any compatible mouse or keyboard to any Unifying Receiver. When connected via the receiver, the computer detects the keyboard (and mouse) as USB devices. Things that I did not like upon using this otherwise excellent keyboard: - There are no height adjustment tabs on the base of the keyboard. - The keyboard is all plastic. It looks like Apple's Aluminum keyboards though. - The USB-C port of the back of the keyboard is used only for charging. Unlike the MX mouse on the same series, the USB-C port cannot be used as an USB keyboard (Although the wireless receiver does that). - This might be an Apple problem, but if the boot drive on the mac is encrypted (As it should be), this keyboard does not work until the initial password is set, when connected via Bluetooth. This is because macOS File Vault does not enable the Bluetooth driver until after macOS boots. To compound the problem, the USB-C connector on the keyboard does not work except for charging it so File Vault won't work with it via USB. Connecting via the unifying receiver works, but the receiver is USB-A, and it needs to be connected either through a dock or an adapter (dongle). So much for 'Designed for Mac'. - Keycaps are not removable, so it makes it hard to clean. To be fair, modern Apple keyboards are also impossible to fix, but having used mechanical keyboards in the past in which keycaps are made to be easily removed, this is a slight drawback to me. Also note that if one of the computers is connected via VPN, the 'Logitech Flow' software might not work (depending on the VPN settings), because it needs network connectivity between both computers. Overall, it's an excellent keyboard that I thoroughly enjoy. Currently using it with both my personal and work MacBook at home, except for the slight annoyance when the computer boots, which I'll solve by having both computers use Unifying receivers.

  • Almost perfect, almost.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Digic - August 28, 2020

    This was and is my magic keyboard replacement option. It's a solid build with great tactile feedback. It takes a good minute to get accustomed to the indented keys, but once that minute passes, it's a pleasure to type on. I needed to the number keys on the side and not at the top, this has been great. I appreciate the Logitech flow software, but it takes a while to get the hang of since my laptop (second monitor) is at a different angle than my main monitor (iMac). The backlight is great but sensitive to movement.

  • A keyboard to improve workflow and comfort for Mac
    Reviewed by AllAboutTech - July 9, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Verdict: The Logitech MX Keys is amazingly useful. I never thought a keyboard could do so much. It’s my favorite keyboard, period. It has improved my workflow between devices, typing comfort, and productivity on my iPad. First impressions. It was packaged nicely with some white wrapping paper and looked great upon opening. It is heavier than it looks. It looks nice and sleek. It has an on/off switch on the backside, and a USB-C connector for charging. The keyboard comes with a USB adapter and a USB-C charging cable. Design. The keyboard is laid-out well, with the hot keys and device switch keys easily accessible. The full-size keyboard is a nice change compared to my original iMac keyboard, and actually allows much more comfortable typing due to the extra space on the keyboard. I think I would have preferred the on/off switch on the top of the keyboard for easier access, but I will probably get used to the switch in the back sooner or later. Typing. The keyboard types smoothly and it is comfortable. It also has concave keys that feel nice. I think typing on it actually feels better than the original keyboard from my iMac. While I prefer clickity keyboards, this one is pretty great. The lighted keys come on when your hands get close to it… that’s a very nice touch that hasn’t gotten old yet. The lighted keys are not a gimmick, they are so helpful for typing in low light. Multi-device use. I didn’t know that keyboards could connect to multiple computers at once. That is a wonderful feature that I knew I could put to use right away. First, I needed a keyboard for my iPad, so I connected the Logitech keyboard via Bluetooth and it worked immediately. All the hot keys worked with the iPad and increased my productivity significantly. The keyboard implementation on the iPad is really well done. Then, instead of switching to another keyboard to access my iMac, I connected the Logitech keyboard via Bluetooth. It also worked right away. For some reason, the “launchpad” shortcut button on the keyboard didn’t work, so I reconfigured it on the iMAC settings, which resolved the issue in just a few seconds. Lastly, I connected the Logitech keyboard to my Macbook Pro also via Bluetooth, and again it just worked! Now I can switch seamlessly between an iPad, an iMac, and a Macbook, typing on all three devices with a single keyboard, toggling between the devices at the press of a button. AMAZING!! What an improvement to my workflow. For experimentation, I also tried to connect to an older windows computer. I was not able to connect the Logitech keyboard via Bluetooth (this could be the fault of my older windows laptop), but the keyboard worked fine with the Windows computer when I used the USB adapter. When connected to the Windows laptop, the keyboard worked well, and I could still switch to my iPad and iMac by pressing the device switch keys. Things I love. - The ability to switch between three devices is incredible. It is the most useful new keyboard feature I have used in decades - The lighted keys come on when your hands get close… very cool! - The lighted keys are very useful for typing in low light - The hot keys work really well with the iPad and Mac computers. The implementation on the iPad is wonderful! I am surprised mostly because I didn’t think the keyboard would be useful on the iPad beyond simply typing. With this keyboard, my iPad has become a power tool - Battery life is impressive: 10hrs with lighted keys, and five months with the lighted keys off - Nice typing! Easy, fast, smooth, and accurate - It’s wireless - It also worked with a Windows computer! So you could use this Logitech keyboard to control and iOS device, a Mac, and a Windows computer. Things I don’t love. - I wish this keyboard came with a sleeve, or even a hard case. It would increase the travel potential of this keyboard. Since it works so well with my iPad, I plan to travel with it, but I will have to be careful so I don’t damage it - This keyboard should include a slot somewhere under the keyboard to store the USB adapter. This would prevent the easy loss of the USB adapter, and ensure that you have the USB adapter when you need it. For now, I guess I will store in the retail box The Logitech MX Keys for Mac is a fantastic keyboard. I love it because it has drastically improved my workflow between devices, while providing an overall better typing experience and increased productivity on my iPad. I think I will have to purchase another one for my wife because I’ve seen her eyeing my new keyboard, and I can see the writing on the wall.

  • A Keyboard Lights Me Up with a Smirk
    Reviewed by Txstatesal - July 13, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've had my MX Keys for a few days now and I am enthralled with how well it paired with my Mini. The small bowls in each key were an excellent design touch, as well as the sensors for the keys to light up as your hand approaches, and of course the Bluetooth capability without the dongle. When I saw Logitech created this keyboard I wanted it because of the smart design features but also because of the dark slate color. It is a nice pop of color on my enamel desk and it just creates a clean like on my furniture. For charging the keyboard it comes with a USC-C wire so you don't need batteries like other keyboards which I loved. It was about time I invested in one that didn't require them. Overall this keyboard is quiet and not clunky like other keyboards, it's beautiful to look at, it does more than just type (it knows when your hand is approaching which is so clever), and it is very responsive. I haven't figured it out yet but there is something clunky when I first turn it on that makes it miss the first few key strokes for my password. It's happened three times and that was weird. Otherwise this is a great keyboard and will look great in any household because it amps up it's surroundings. I'm a big fan of pieces of technology that double as art!

  • Best BT keyboard for Max at any price range!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by RJDSTi - December 5, 2021

    Absolutely perfect design and execution! Literally better than even Apple’s magic keyboard! Love the ease of use and keystroke feel. Heavy but solid construction makes this feel much more expensive than it is. If your in the fence, this keyboard is a major major GO!!!
