Logitech K380 :: Another look

by Volker Weber

At IFA 2015 I had a few briefings with Logitech about un-announced products and I received this keyboard in a goody bag. At first I did not like it at all. It's heavy when compared with the Keys-to-go that lives in my bag. But now I find myself using it all the time.

I asked myself why I suddenly like it. Two reasons: it rests quire comfortably in my lap and it is very easy to connect devices and switch between them. If I want to type on my iPhone, I grab the keyboard, hit the F1 key and I am in. Type something on the TV screen? Hit F2. Fetch the Yoga Tab 2 Pro, hit F3. Connect a new device? Put it in pairing mode, hold the F3 key for a second and boom, paired. Pair the Yoga again? Hold F3 once more, pair, boom. Go back to the iPhone? Hit F1. And on and on and on. It's a piece of cake, even for somebody with as many devices as I have.

This is neither the best looking keyboard, nor a really good one. It could not replace my Apple wireless keyboard. But being able to pair three completely different devices and switch around between them, that's very much an advantage. And it's absolutely carefree. It feels like I could drop it down the stairs without breaking. It's two AAA batteries are rated to last two years.

From nay to editor-refuses-to-give-it-back award in ten days. Not bad.
