Logitech’s MX Keys Illuminated Keyboard: A Luxurious necessity

Published

on

Key Highlights

  • Introducing MX Keys
  • The key to mastering your next big project.
  • It’s the first ever MX keyboard
  • Designed for creatives and engineered for coder. If you can think it, you can master it.

Logitech’s MX Keys is a full-sized matte keyboard that includes a number pad on the side. It’s essentially a stripped-down version of the Logitech CRAFT keyboard which includes a programmable creators dial. It’s a full-size keyboard (including a number pad) that’s built on a single metal plate.

It has spherical dished keys with rounded edges that follow the curve of your fingers. The design provides a comfortable feel while typing. While there is a lot of stability that results in a lot of responsiveness, there isn’t a lot of key travel. This probably won’t appeal to users of mechanical keyboards such as the Logitech K840, for example. But unlike a mechanical keyboard, there isn’t much noise while typing on it. In fact, it’s very quiet.

The keys also have a “Smart Illumination” feature. Each of the keys has proximity sensors that won’t light up until your hands approach the keyboard. Then the lighting fades as your hands back away. The key brightness also automatically adjusts to the room’s lighting conditions which helps save on battery power.

SPECIFICATIONS

Fluid, Natural, Precise – Perfect Stroke Keys

Decades of Logitech expertise have gone into Perfect Stroke keys – ensuring that every keystroke is fluid, natural, and accurate.

The spherically dished keys match the shape of your fingertips, and their round edges provide satisfying feedback — no matter where you strike the key. Matte coating has been applied to every key so your fingers glide effortlessly over the surface.

Take comfort in Remarkable Stability

Confidently type on a keyboard crafted for stability, and precision.
Increased key stability reduces noise and optimizes responsiveness so you feel – but don’t hear – every keystroke. And the entire body of MX Keys is held together by a single metal plate – for a remarkably solid build that never slides around your desk.

Smart illumination made smarter

Proximity sensors detect your hands, illuminating the keyboard the moment your fingers approach. The backlit keys then fade off when you leave the desk — saving power for those moments of inspiration.

Backlighting intensity automatically adapts to lighting conditions, or can be set manually.

Multiple Computers, One MX Key

MX Keys follows your MX Master 3 – or other Flow-enabled mouse – from one computer to another, meaning you can type on multiple devices in one fluid workflow. Transfer files, documents, and images across computers and Mac and Windows operating systems.

USB-C Rechargeable

MX Keys stays powered up to 10 days on a full charge – or up to 5 months with backlighting turned off. Use the USB-C charging cable to top up the power.

Easy-Switch enabled

Pair your keyboard with up to three devices and switch between them with the press of an Easy-Switch™ button. Use one MX Keys for your laptop, desktop or tablet.

Responsible Packaging

All of the paper-based packaging for MX Keys is FSC®-certified and made from a mix of materials from FSC-certified forests, recycled materials and other controlled sources. We used 97% less plastic resulting in a 64% reduction in the carbon footprint of the packaging, compared to the previous model.
