Logitech unveils Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800

Logitech offers new wireless backlit keyboard

A long time ago, Logitech offered up what I think is the best keyboard ever made for general computer work - the Illuminated Keyboard. This wired keyboard is very thin and has backlit keys, which at the time it debuted was a feature only common to gaming keyboards. Today Logitech has unveiled a new keyboard called the Wireless illuminated Keyboard K800.


This keyboard lacks the super thin profile of the wired Illuminated Keyboard, but makes up for it to some extend by cutting the wires tying you down. The K800 uses the Logitech unified receiver to connect to the computer and that one receiver will work with compatible mice too. The keyboard has adjustable backlighting that can be dimmed or turned off.

The lighting also uses a proximity sensor that turns itself on and off when you had gets close to the keyboard or leaves the keyboard to conserve power. Logitech uses its PerfectStroke key system and the Incurve key tops for comfortable typing. The internal rechargeable battery can be charge with a mini USB cable while you are using the keyboard. You can pre-order the K800 now for $99.99.
