Usual price for this item.


isit? i looked at a few sites seemed to be £30+?

wait logitech sales they r about£24

Got one of these a year ago, good enough for HTPC, keyboard is terrible for typing though.

TBH If mine broke I probably wouldn't by it again.

I use one of these with my Revo for XBMC, really nice bit of kit

I use this for my entertainment pc, very good keyboard.

I brought this item on 30 Jan 2012 from Amazon for £29.99 - it was the cheapest at the time.

Good item, any issues check batteries and that your phone etc isn't super close to keyboard.

I had the Logitech one made for PS3 and loved it and this look even better! Shame it isn't Bluetooth as ill have to have a stick in my laptop

Bought a couple of these a year ago from Logitech for £24.49 each and they both came with a free mouse! After topcashback and selling the mice on Amazon they cost me about a tenner a piece. Decent keyboards for HTPC use, a little on the lightweight side (and not sure I'd want to do much heavy typing on one) certainly much better then the Keysonic piece of plasticky tat I used before!

id personally go for a known brand which you can easily get a replacement for etc

I have this item, been using for about a month now. Really good piece of tech. I got this for $35 while in Canada.

good deal shame it's not bluetooth though

Great item in theory, but the keyboard is terrible. Almost impossible to type. If you're a Lenovo owner, avoid! Damn shamed cos the trackpad is really good, and it also has a left mouse button on the top left, so you can effectively & comfortably use it standing up.

Otherwise great, although I don't think if you have a smartphone that requires an HDMI adaptor that you can in any way use USB OTG and HDMI out at the same time, even with a hub - anyone want to elaborate? Used one of these successfully with my crappy tablet, although be warned that if you're a ConnectBot user, the keys don't map properly, and you will be frustrated.

that sounds like the same deal i got. frgot i got the free mouse also

Agreed over the keyboard , it is so tightly spaced with hardly any gap between keys that you end up mispelllllllllling.

Bought mine from Logitech for £19 plus a free MS305 mouse that is good.

I have one and use it with my HTC. I Great piece of kit with good range. Keyboard and mouse use same USB adapter

gd price

Will this work with a 65ES8000 Samsung TV?

Without backlit keys I'm not really on it...

I have two of the Keysonic mini keyboards that I use for my HTPC's. They are an excellent piece of kit. Very responsive full size laptop style keyboard, great trackpad and very lightweight. Also the batteries last for months in them. The Keysonic are are little more expensive than the Logitech keyboards posted here but after using one of these Logitech keyboards in the past I would buy the Keysonic one over this any day of the week. Keysonic also gets excellent reviews and works with Raspberry Pi and Xbox 360 etc straight out of the box.

K400 is great. Highly recommended. And if you have a problem, Logitech will send out a replacement without even taking the original in. So if you are greedy scum like me you can get 2 for the price of 1 :P

Heheh, that's the same one I referred to in my earlier post as a "piece of plasticky tat"! But then there are plenty of good reviews on it so maybe I'm alone in thinking that! I think the build quality of the Logitech is much better (but still not "premium" and I wouldn't want to use either on a main PC - I agree with the Lenovo comment earlier, my Lenovo wired keyboard is a big black ugly thing but sure is good to type on). The range is also better on the Logitech (I had to mount the Keysonic receiver on an extension lead to get it to work well, the Logitech one is fine straight into the back of the PC).

Thanks guys, loving all the suggestions. Although that's just made the job of sorting out a new keyboard even harder!!

Which to go for? :-D

Voted hot.

Would be good if my local PC World hadn't been closed down and replaced by some crappy discount store named B&M

Had one of these for a while for my HTPC, well worth the money. I use some cheap Poundland re-chargeable batteries with it and they last months. Typing with it now

Good price - anyone know if these would work with an android tablet?

You might be able to get it to work with some tablets using a USB OTG adaptor but it would make more sense to simply buy a Bluetooth keyboard instead.

I wouldn't do that... But if I did, what would be a common fault...?

Well for me the first time

Well for me the first time I did it, it was genuinely the letter "c" sticking on the keyboard. While waiting for it to arrive though, I took the key out, gave it a blow and it's been fine for months since... So then I had to do the same with my k360.... which also had a genuine minor fault. Occasionally on boot it would act like the "page up" key was stuck in. Unplugging the receiver and reconnecting it would fix the fault but seeing as my previous experience with Logitech was so good I told them about it and they sent out another k360.

So now I have 2 perfectly working k400's for the price of 1. £24 is what I paid direct from them with a free logitech mouse.

And 2 k360 where 1 of them acts up occasionally. Which I paid £10 for.

So not that crooker I don't think and I would have sent in the originals if they'd asked but they didn't.

The tablet doesn't have bluetooth - hence was wondering whether this would work instead. Thanks

This keyboard is designed to be used in a media centre role, from your couch for example, for which it does a great job. Think of it as a 'remote control' of keyboards.

It is not supposed to be used as a regular keyboard so don't expect it to be a replacement for your daily keyboard.

The universal receiver that it uses is actually a pretty good idea as it means you can use it with almost any device that supports USB input. It also integrates with Logitechs other modern input devices so you only need one receiver for all your mice and keyboards.
