The reason for this comfort is twofold. The first is the incurve. While most keyboards dip heavily in the middle the K750 keys are more subtle – as if you’d pressed your finger tips gently into a soft surface. This makes them cushion your fingers better and you feel a grip for the keys earlier.
The second element is the action of the keys themselves. For such a thin keyboard there is a remarkable amount of travel, not too much (about 5mm), and the keys then quietly spring back in such a manner than your fingers don’t lose contact with the key on the way back up.
The effect this creates is an ability to dance from key to key, there is no stabbing action from one to another. For touch typists this is perfect because the extra duration of contact means your fingers spend less time airborne meaning less chance of losing your positioning and consequently making mistakes. Heavy typists will also be keen to learn that the traditional keyboard weakspot, the space bar, is just as well balanced as the rest of the keys.
Needless to say this review was written on the K750 and while it may be little over 1,000 words, I would have been happy to go on for another 1,000.
All of which doesn’t mean the K750 is completely flawless. With its design you’d think it would be targeting an Apple audience, but Logitech has yet to offer Mac drivers. It will work on a Mac, but without the useful Solar App. Furthermore at £69.99 the K750 isn’t cheap. That said for what is on offer I wouldn’t say it is extortionate, particularly for heavy typists.
The Logitech K750 Solar Keyboard is a wonderful example of smart design, innovation and practicality all combining to make a class leading product. Given the low power consumption of keyboards it is surprising in hindsight that a truly independent, high class wireless design had yet to surface. Now it has we’ll find it very hard to go back to wires or batteries. It is hard to admit, but we’re genuinely excited about this keyboard. Take one home and we’re sure you’ll feel exactly the same.
