#TechTuesday – Logitech K830 Illuminated Living Room Touch Keyboard

Lots of people have moved from cable and DVRs to internet and Kodi or Netflix for their TV system. Standard remote controls just don’t cut it anymore.  For quick searching, smooth scrolling and all-around usability, it makes sense to use a keyboard and mouse.  The Logitech K830 Illuminated Living Room Touch Keyboard is a great choice!

This super-thin rechargeable keyboard and touchpad combo make finding your favorite show or YouTube video a breeze. The K830 has (super soft) illuminated keys combined and a large sensitive touchpad (similar to a laptop) which make it a joy to use.  The illuminated keys activate as soon as you touch the keys or touchpad which is helpful in low light situations.  The build quality is excellent, the keyboard feels very solid and ‘premium’ in your hands.

I replaced my Logitech K400 Plus Wireless Touch Keyboard (which lost a fight with a glass of Coke), the K400 worked awesomely and really delivers for the price.  It doesn’t have the “premium” feel that the K830 has but certainly does the job.

Some of the features I love…

  • Backlit Keys– No need to turn on the lamp to search for your favorite show
  • Rechargeable – The standard micro-USB charger is a brilliant idea
  • Media Buttons Control the volume, play, pause and much more
  • Bluetooth or USB – This keyboard will allow a standard Logitech Unifying receiver or will connect directly via Bluetooth

I picked one up for me and one as a Christmas gift for a friend, smiles all around with this keyboard, check it out! Logitech K830 Illuminated Living Room Touch Keyboard
