Keyboards
« on: Jun 19, 2015, 02:07 PM »
Rather than continue in the other thread, I thought it made sense to start afresh.  I have no experience with the Logitech wired k/b you cited but my last wired k/b was a Seitech.  I am now on the second K800, the first lost a battle with coffee. 

But, after that happened I ordered a replacement, without hesitation, the same day, from Amazon and a 2 day delivery.  During the 2 day wait I went back to the Seitech and my initial reaction was "geez, this is awful.  The keys felt very mechanical, sat high in the frame and were difficult to readjust to using.  Fortunately I don't have  to type a lot but I would never go back after using the K800.  Right now the price difference is $10 more for the wireless version and well worth the investment. 

IMO the K800 feels truly like an electronic keyboard, not a electrified mechanical one as the Seitech did.

No colors but the intensity and the sensitivity of the movement sensor is controllable with the Logitech software.

It turns  on the lighting when it senses hand movement.  That too can be changed or eliminated.

I like that it's a single, white light. I don't really care for keyboards with gimmicky, colorful lights. I tolerated the Azio light since it was a single, pleasant blue light. But I'll take white.
