Working on the go has never been easier with the Logitech K780 keyboard that connects with up to three devices.
As we all know, just because you’re away on a business trip doesn’t mean you have an excuse to be out of touch with whatever’s going on in the office back home, especially since there’s a high chance that you’re able to get an internet connection almost anywhere in the world these days.
And many of us now use several devices concurrently: Computers, tablets and phones. Maybe even two phones. Which makes this Logitech K780 multi-device keyboard worth investing in.
As someone who has never quite gotten used to typing on a touchscreen despite owning several smartphones for seven years now, I’ve been having a field day with this keyboard since the review unit arrived at our office.
At work, I use Whatsapp Web, and relish its convenience. I’ve long bemoaned the fact that Instagram doesn’t have a similar function, especially when I need to type out lengthy descriptions for our company’s account. That problem is now solved with this Logitech keyboard, which allows you to connect up to three devices – compatible with Windows, Mac, Android and iOs – at any one time via Bluetooth. There’s also the option of connecting the keyboard to your computer with the Unifying USB receiver. Toggle between your devices via the light grey buttons marked 1, 2 and 3 at the top left-hand of the keyboard (known as the Easy-Switch buttons).
The keyboard is also OS-adaptive, meaning it recognises shortcuts and functions of the operating system you happen to be using. Plus, the cradle holds several devices at the perfect reading angle.
I liked the feel of the keys beneath my fingers. It was comfortable to type on, quiet, and the keys had a good “bounce”, which I always find comforting.
With this keyboard, I’d be inclined to leave my Macbook Pro at home in favour of my iPad Mini the next time I travel for work. I can only hope that Logitech will consider manufacturing a protective cover so I’d be able to pack it into my suitcase without worrying it being damaged.
The Logitech K780 retails for $129 at all good IT stores.
