Logitech MX Keys keyboard Review

Hi,

I’m a software developer and to do my job I have to sit on the computer at least 8 hours daily. Having a decent, comfortable, and robust keyboard to do my job is a requirement. My previous keyboard was a Razer BlackWidow V3. I’ve used it as my daily driver for gaming and programming, but since I started recording videos the keyboard’s clicking sound was a problem and I had to replace it. (I think I’ve also heard my neighbor once complain about it πŸ˜…)

I’ve stumbled upon a Logitech MX Keys keyboard.

Here’s what I like about it:

  • It’s nice to type on. The experience is like ThinkPad keyboards. It feels nice, unique, and premium.
  • It has a white backlight that turns on when you hit a key or when it detects motion near the keyboard.
  • It’s silent, like a laptop keyboard.
  • It is wireless.
  • It works well on Linux and on Windows, macOS too.
  • It has lots of media control keys, they can be re-mapped using Logitech Options software.
  • Battery is good. It lasts about a week of daily use with backlight on.

And now, here’s what I don’t like about it:

  • You can’t use it in wired mode, it only supports wireless.
  • Backlight settings reset when the unifying receiver loses power. (At the time of editing this post, this problem went away by itself)

That’s about it. Overall, I like it and I will stick with it.

I don’t regret getting the version with the numpad since I don’t think I’m going to take it away from my desk, there’s a mini version that is more portable, if you’re interested.

Thanks for taking your time to read though this post. 🍻
