K400 is normal windows, k400r is for windows 8 and has a standby button. I own both, good keyboards but you might want to download the Logitech software to disable trackpad clicking as it's annoying.

great on the Raspberry Pi.

Will this work with most / all smart TVs or do they need to have any special features?

I think Scan had it on Today Only a bit ago for ~ £20. Might be worth a quick check. Good spot though, especially if you're too idle to get qualified for free post!?!

Also, something to consider: K400 has been reported to work with android, K400r is reported not working on android. Not quite sure if it's quite as clear cut though as the hardware should be quite similar. May apply to other systems such as smart TVs

eDIT: found another source where R model claimed to work on android. Note that this is the R-product.

"Ships in Certified Frustration-Free Packaging
*All K400 packaging contains the K400R model. This model has been updated for Windows 8 and has several new features."

I have this for my media PC. It's great.

used one for the last couple of years on my HTPC, great little keyboard, highly recommended

Sure I had one of those 20 years ago......

Had these at work; while they may look purty, they have awful keyboards and worse trackpads. Usable at a push, but we replaced all ours.

Yeah I wouldn't want to use one for work but these are great in the living room for an htpc or similar.

I actually have two - One upstairs and one downstairs. And they don't interfere with each other.

The K400 or K400r model? They say the R model is leaps and bounds better in typign than the non-R

Utterly useless for us wonderful lefties, but still a good deal for all you weird right handers out there

Thanks ordered one for my HTPC

Can you link to that feedback? I have the old model with the rubbish keyboard action. Great otherwise.

Obviously never going to be good as a main keyboard but but i've had mine for over a year, keep it hooked up to my TV and for that it does the job perfectly (nagaviatng yutube bbciplayer etc..) The trackpad's particularly handy.

The retro boy cried in me seeing this!

Had one for a couple of years, great little keyboard.

Great product, though the keyboard layout is a little weird. Also having to use the FN key to activate the 'F' keys was a pain, though now solved by installing the Logitech software (you can turn this feature off).

One other slight con is that when my usb hard drive first spins up it interferes with the signal, so the trackpad won't respond for a couple of seconds. (I could probably solve this by moving my hard drive)

The batteries last for ages on this!

Note: this is NOT compatible with the Nexus 7, the Unifying receiver does not work. This is very very annoying.

Does work with lower Android versions ( AFAIK - it worked with my old Ainol Elf (leave it)) but JB 4.3 doesn't contain the drivers for this.

That aside, the format of this device is good, the trackpad is fine, but the keyboard is crap, almost unusable.

If anyone knows of a similar format item for a similar price (bluetooth or rf) I'm all ears.

I agree, I also find the page up/down, home and end buttons being behind the arrow keys to be the most annoying part. I appreciate there is only a certain amount of space on these keyboards, but it can be awkward.

You're right about the batteries though, even leaving it on it seems to last for a really long time, many months constant use on one set of Duracells is typical.

Is this the "r" or "non R" version?

Seems to have gone - "We're sorry. The item Logitech K400 Wireless Touch Keyboard is no longer available from the seller you selected. To see if it's available from another seller, click here to return to the item's product detail page."

Shame - I had actually been looking at these earlier in the week. I already have one, but it broke **** about a week ago leaving my main home PC keyboard and mouse-less!

**** It went a bit nuts. Pushing the majority of keys now come out as a weird escape-sequence combination of three keys. I have no idea when or why this happened and have otherwise been generally happy with it.

Had one for a while for use with my HTPC... like it very much but sure I paid less than £20 for it, and IIRC got a free wireless mouse too courteous of one of the logitech code deals.

Still not a bad price for a very useful bit of kit

I've got one of these. I think I paid about £35 a year or so ago. Quite handy, works perfectly with Playstation 3, plug and play.

I've got one of these for my HTPC but not a fan really. Too bulky and would prefer something with a softer feel on the keys.

Unless you need to do a lot of typing on the HTPC I'd rather go for a Rii Mini or similar.

This is a good price for this product though, can't knock that!

£34.99 now

I own this keyboard and lost the USB Dongle, Is there anyway I can get the dongle only?

Got one of these a couple of years ago for the media PC conencted to the TV. Its pretty good. Battery life is superb( Only changed batteries twice in two years). Range is good. Its quite big though and I wouldn't type on the keyboard for anything more than an email address or password.

You can buy them direct from Logitech or on eBay. They're quite expensive (£10+) so you might just want to buy another unified product.

Yes they use the unifying receiver that you can buy direct from Logitech.
It's a simple job to pair them up.
I bought two because they charge £10 for the receiver and £10 for postage for orders under £20

You can also get them from a famous auction site or order another device that uses the unifying receiver as you can hook up multiple devices to one receiver.

There was a logitech wireless trackpad on here for £11.99 ish recently that would make a better buy than direct

Thanks bob_hoskins and CrazyBob

They aren't designed to be used as a regular day-to-day keyboard - they are supposed to be for occasional/incidental use as a keyboard for HTPC for example. That's what I use mine for and it's absolutely great - compact and light enough to hold and an easy to use trackpad. Great battery life (uses standard AAs) and also compatible with Logitech's 'unifying' system which is a real boon if you already have such devices.

Highly recommended (just don't expect to use it as a 'main' keyboard).
