Logitech K380 – Wireless keyboard Review

Logitech K380 – Wireless keyboard Review

Logitech’s K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard is designed for the multi-device world. You can use this device on up to three at once and of course it works with all major platforms such as Windows, Mac and even Apple TV (just to name a few).

Design

It took a little time to get used to using the Logitech K380  keyboard over using a Standard keyboard on a PC or the keyboard on my Apple Mac Pro, as these keyboards are a little larger. The K380 keyboard keys are a little “squished together however having the K380 made travelling with very easy as it fit nicely in my handbag! The Buttons are circular as opposed to the standard square buttons and I often found it easy to miss a button, it does take some time to get used to but easy once you have the hang of it.

Measuring less than 11 x 5 inches, with a thickness of about a half-inch that tapers down to give you the “tilted effect”. There are three Bluetooth keys, as well as ten “hotkeys” and two Alt-keys (on either side of the space bar) that double up as Apple Command keys. Sadly you won’t find a Home, End, Page-Up or Page-Down keys which are keys I use fairly regularly. 

I was able to hook this little baby up to my iPhone, iPad, Apple Mac Pro and our Apple TV, press one of the numbered “Easy-Switch” buttons on the top left corner of the keyboard to toggle between them. It was great being able to connect my laptop up to the TV and use the keyboard sitting on my lap rather than a heavy laptop sitting on my lap and cables going everywhere. 

Logitech also makes a model that’s significantly larger, the K480 multidevice Bluetooth keyboard however I prefer the K380 as its smaller and easier to take with me.

Battery Life
