    Note: this is not a jooooke…. I reeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally am tyyyyyyping this onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn the K380. For the thiiiiiiiiiiiirrrd time actttttttttttttuallllllllllllllllllllly, bbbbbbbbeccccccauuuuuse

    [and here I switch keyboards]

    because backspace kept getting stuck and I kept losing my work. (I wanted to write this whole review on the K380 but it became so badly stuck that it locked my phone in an input loop and I had to kill power to the keyboard.)

    Even if my experience is atypical (i.e., a defective unit) the size and weight of the keyboard mean it isn’t suitable for my purposes. The form factor is too cramped to do serious typing on, but too large to carry/stow without planning. It lacks the stand for mobile devices other models have, and is heavy enough that I’d rather carry my toy-like $180 laptop than pair this with my rather nicer tablet.

    Returning this, and not replacing it.

    It’s very good looks wise & also buttons are round shaped. Typing is not great but it’s good enough. You can connect 3 diff devices seamlessly with just the press of a button. Light weight. I’m using it for my mobile, IPad & laptop as well. Works smoothly with all the devices. Bit a pricey, but u can get it at low price in lighting deals or festive sales. Go for it & you won’t regret. Thank you. If you find this review helpful plz appreciate it by liking the review. -Sri Tech Guy.

    I don’t know if anyone else has got such a keyboard, but The keyboard on the back has a sticker that it has been approved by Pakistan Telecom Authority. I don’t know why this keyboard is here in India in that case. I am replacing it and will update if my 2nd keyboard also has the same issue. Does anybody else have this sticker??

    Update! : I requested a replacement. But the 2nd one unfortunately had scratches so I had to return it. It still had the PTA sticker on back. Maybe Logitech is putting stickers on all devices.

    Update 2: This is my third purchase from Amazon, and thankfully the keyboard was in perfect sealed condition with no scratches whatsoever. However, the initial sticker (mentioned in photo) was there. I guess they just stick it to all units. So in case you receive a keyboard with such a sticker you can keep the device. So far the keyboard is working great. I can switch seamlessly between my mobile and MacBook for typing. The keys are very comfortable to type on, and very nice. I programmed the brightness up and down using the Logitech Options software. I am loving this keyboard! Thanks Amazon. Also thanks Amazon to the lightening quick refund for my previous unit.

    Within 6 months of regular use, keys are wearing off. As you can see in the pictures, I now have no “E” key and half an “A” and a partial “S” with more starting. Logitech has no viable support function on their website to complain too so I am left with where I bought it.

    Overall function of the keyboard is good and I’m luck I’m a touch typer but this needs to be fixed before I would consider buying or recommending this product.

    Connects very easily and functions very well with very low power consumption. It is also remarkably quiet and can be used in crowded environments without disturbing others. However:

    1) It is remarkably heavy.
    2) The keys have very little play and so you tend to miss keys if you are not very careful.
    3) The four friction studs on the bottom are fixed with an adhesive that runs and oozes even at ambient temperatures of ~ 30 degrees. I have to soak up the runny glue with powder almost on a daily basis.
    4) Too small for comfortable and fast two-handed typing.

    People use computers in a lot of different ways. There is no one-size-fits-everyone keyboard. This keyboard already has many reviews, and while I did not read all of them, I did not see any existing reviews focusing on the specific problems I have with this keyboard. I am adding my experience here for the folks who have similar needs to mine.

    TL;DR: Lots of good qualities, but bad for intense keyboarding sessions.
    – Pros: 1) $30; 2) quick-switch over 3 devices; 3) sturdy and portable; 4) same form factor as an Apple keyboard; 5) feels good to type on.
    – Cons: 1) It drops key presses when typing quickly; 2) Software support is bad; 3) Fn key behavior is hardcoded and cannot be overridden.

    BACKGROUND
    I purchased the Logitech K380 to use as a full-time keyboard at a desk with my MacBook Pro (MBP) 2018 laptop, which unfortunately has a keyboard infamous for malfunctioning. I recently had my laptop’s keyboard replaced due to worsening issues, and decided to start using an external keyboard to minimize wear and tear on the new one.

    This review focuses on what I personally need in a keyboard as a software engineer who types rapidly (~130 WPM) with a keyboard-shortcut-intensive usage style. People who use a keyboard in a more casual way, and who do not care about customizing the keyboard’s behavior, will probably not encounter the issues I discuss here.

    My requirements for an external keyboard are:

    – As accurate as possible when typing at 130+ WPM.
    – Exact same form factor as MBP keyboard, to unify muscle memory across the built-in and external keyboards.
    – Real function keys which can be set to act as F keys by default.

    I basically wanted my laptop’s built-in keyboard, but as an external keyboard. Hey, Apple makes one of those! It’s called the Apple Magic Keyboard (Wireless, Rechargable). So why didn’t I just buy that? Two reasons. First, the price: $99+ is expensive. Second, I had bad experiences with Apple wireless keyboards from a few years ago: several keyboards which refused to pair, or would spontaneously unpair after a while.

    I have been a Logitech fan for many years, having enjoyed using many of their keyboards and mice on desktop PCs. When I saw that the Logitech K380 had a nearly identical form factor to the Magic keyboard including fn key, had strong reviews, was only $30 on Amazon, and supported quick-switching across devices, I decided to give it a try.

    PROS – This keyboard has a lot going for it:

    1) Affordable. This keyboard is a great value for the price.

    2) Quick-switch over multiple devices. Having tried several different means of tackling the “one keyboard, multiple machines” problem, I can say that quick bluetooth pairing has big advantages. Each switch only takes about 1 second, and it “just works,” unlike Synergy, which requires networking your machines together and running special server software, or a USB KVM switch, which requires several cables and adapters.

    3) Sturdy and portable. Some other reviews complained about these aspects. But I think it is exactly the right weight (1.17 lbs): it stays put while you type. And it’s a small form factor keyboard which fits easily into a backpack or larger purse. If it were any more portable (e.g. foldable), it would suffer in durability or typing performance.

    4) Same form factor as an Apple keyboard. I use macOS, and care about consistency across my keyboards. This keyboard is close enough to the Apple form factor that it feels pretty seamless switching between keyboards. It has all four modifier keys on the bottom left (fn, ctrl, start/alt/opt, alt/cmd ⌘), which is a big plus for me. Although beware that fn and control are reversed from Apple keyboards—more on that in “CONS” below.

    5) Feels good to type on. This is highly subjective. But personally, I really like the feel of typing on this keyboard. The keys have a nice amount of travel: more than a MBP 2018, less than a classic 101-key keyboard e.g. from a Dell PC. The rounded keys are slightly strange at first but quickly become unnoticeable. Relatedly: another Amazon review mentions key presses happening repeatedly and sporadically, making correct typing nigh-impossible. This sounds like a defective keyboard to me—I have had zero problems with mine in that vein.

    CONS – Despite all of the above, using this keyboard intensely day after day is frustrating:

    1) It drops key presses when typing quickly. In particular, certain combinations of keys, when pressed together, prevent additional key presses from registering. This is best illustrated with an example. Try typing the word “furious” as fast as you can. When I type this word on the Logitech K380, it nearly always comes out “furiou”, with the S missing.

    Why? Each key typed has two parts: the press and the release. When typing quickly, you often press the next key (sometimes the next 3-4 keys) before releasing a previous key. Good keyboards will allow this. But on my K380, if I press O, then press U, then press S, without releasing any of them, the S does not register. It’s not that the keyboard cannot handle three keys at once: the word “out” for example comes out just fine. But the word “plastic” eats the S. It’s not just the S key though, because the words “nose” and “poster” work even with all keys held at once. But “please” eats the S, and “purse” eats the E. I am not sure, but it feels like a hardware just has a weird limitation here. It destroys my confidence in this keyboard.

    2) The software support is terrible. For macOS, Logitech provides a configuration tool called “Logi Options” for configuring the keyboard. It has nearly no features. One option it does have is “Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys” which sounds great in theory. As a software developer who needs to press combinations like cmd+shift+F11 on a regular basis, I strongly prefer this option to be enabled, so I don’t have to press fn+cmd+shift+F11 instead (ugh). For the special functions (pause/unpause, next track, volume up, volume down, etc.), although I use them all the time, I never need to press them in combination with the other modifier keys like shift or ctrl, so holding fn for them is OK. I also use fn+arrow keys all the time for pg up, pg down, home and end, because there are no such dedicated keys on these small form factor keyboards.

    Unfortunately, this feature does not work reliably. When switching devices, the keyboard “forgets” that this option was enabled, and F keys go back to being not-F-keys again, and the next time you press F3 to dig into some code or switch terminal tabs or whatever, boom, your keyboard is unpaired again. And opening Logi Options and toggling the option back and forth does not fix it! It seems like after some unspecified amount of time, the keyboard just silently “flips” back to F-keys being F-keys again. But the inconsistency there makes it impossible to retain trustworthy muscle memory on the keyboard. And the weirdness does not stop there. Even when F-keys are not being F-keys (either because the keyboard was recently repaired, or because the box in Logi Options is unchecked and taken effect), the behavior of e.g. fn+up/down seems inconsistent: sometimes it’s brightness up/down, and other times it’s the equivalent of left alt+up/down (as reported by Karabiner Event Viewer). There are times when it becomes impossible to type pg up, pg down, home and/or end, due to the keyboard’s inconsistency in behavior. And not being able to type those four keys puts a big damper on fast text editing.

    These segues into the final nail in this keyboard’s coffin:

    3) Fn key behavior is hardcoded and cannot be overridden.

    There is a great macOS tool called Karabiner Elements which lets you completely remap all your keys to behave however you want. So my plan for dealing with the weirdness of Logi Options was: I’ll just use the Karabiner Event Viewer to figure out what keyboard events this keyboard is sending out, and remap everything to behave as closely as possible to an Apple keyboard. Problem solved! But you can’t: pressing fn sends no key event. The keyboard only sends a keyboard event to your computer in response to keys pressed while fn is held. So e.g. pressing fn+up (sometimes! see above) sends the same thing as left alt+up. Thus, there is no way in software to detect the difference between fn+up and left alt+up, and therefore no way to program them to do different things. (For the GitHub-inclined, there is an issue in the Karabiner Elements issue tracker about it: pqrs-org/Karabiner-Elements#999.)

    This problem also means that you cannot switch the location of the ctrl and fn keys, which are reversed from their layout on Apple keyboards. Bummer—I bought this keyboard with the hope of being able to do that.

    I tried with Logi Options installed and Karabiner Elements uninstalled. I tried vice versa. I tried both installed. I tried neither installed. Rebooting in between configuration changes. But nothing worked. I could not find any way to capture an fn key press alone, nor to switch the locations of the ctrl and fn keys to match an Apple keyboard. (When Karabiner Elements is installed, the Keyboard Modifier Keys dialog in System Preferences gains a “Function (fn) key” for the K380, but sadly it does not work. And you still cannot map any other modifier key to fn either.)

    In conclusion, I heartily recommend this keyboard for casual use of slow-to-moderate speed typists. And vehemently recommend against it for intense typists and power users who want control over their keyboard’s behavior.

    This is one of the best wireless keyboard out there with the fabulous easy pairing and switching between Windows and Mac devices.
    This is light weight, small, compact and slim. Just the way i needed my keyboard to be.
    Its battery operated and hence works with 2 AA batteries which i have not changed in a month since i bought it. So i am assuming it will last for another atleast 4-5 months.
    It can pair with 3 different devices at the same time and the pairing is just so easy. In my opinion this one is better than K 480 which is heavy and bulky. Not the one for me. The body is made of plastic which is still sturdy and does not feel cheap and flimsy. Obviously you can’t compare it with Apple Keyboard as its aluminium made bu then if you are ready to shell out 10k for it, well go for it. I bought this Logi for 2895 which is a great price keeping in mind the build quality and usage of this keyboard.

    I needed to replace my wonderful (but now failing) Logitech K810 bluetooth keyboard and opted for the Logitech K380. At face value, the products seem very similar with one key difference… round keys.

    Pros:
    – Price. You can pick this up for $29.99 right now which is a great deal.
    – Build quality is excellent. Feels solid, not too light… won’t slide around on your desk.
    – Small footprint which I prefer.
    – Three devices can be paired, switching between them is very easy and quick.
    – Takes replaceable batteries! This is huge as the K810 had an internal battery that you charged via Micro-USB. Replaceable batteries = way better.

    Cons:
    – This will take some getting used to. I wasn’t worried about the shape of the keys but they also just feel smaller. I have large hands and after using the keyboard for a week, I’m still not sold on it.

    Conceptually, I like this keyboard a lot. However, I have large hands and I’m not sure the round keys are going to work for me. I may have to hand this down to my son. He loves this and loved the K810 before it.

    If you have small to normal size hands, you will probably like this a lot and I would recommend it. If you have large hands… you may want to look elsewhere.

    I waited for this particular keyboard for about 6 months to be available in Blue Colour. The price in which I got is 3054/-.. So, I’ll judge it by this price (if you can get it in cheaper price, even better).
    So,,, coming to pros and cons:
    Pros:
    1. Very very soothing experience to type on a rounded key. First I thought that I won’t even like it that much, but now I love it.
    2. The key sounds are really quiet. Won’t bother your roommate while late night essay writing or when in a library. But the sound of the keys are unique – more like a chicklet sound.
    3. The support for iOS, MacOS, Windows and Android is great. The dedicated 3 buttons on top lets you switch between three devices instantly (time delay while switching next is about 3-4 seconds.)
    4. iOS keys are working flawlessly. Home button, screenshot etc..

    Now, the CONS:
    1. The keys are a little bit on harder side, not for touch typing like macbooks.
    2. Caps lock has no lights. So, you never know when you accidentally pressed Caps lock.
    3. Problem in connecting with Linux OS – Lubuntu. Couldn’t even fix it.
    4. The left and right arrow keys could have been full size as it has enough space. But they put smaller keys anyway.
    5. Warranty 1 year only. Logitech usually gives 2-3 years of warranty. But considering it a premium keyboard they should have given 2 years warranty at least.

    The Cons are not much of a deal breaker. So, if you want it for iPad/Laprop/any other device except Linux, then go fot it. No problems at all.

    Its a full size keyboard that doesn’t take up a lot of room on your desk. With my iPad Pro 10.5, it gives me the option to not always have a keyboard attached to it all the time but its still portable to throw into my bag and take anywhere. I really like how it can connect to three devices and the shortcut keys are really handy. Oddly, a few keys aren’t working for me: the apostrophe doesn’t work at all, and the backward slash doesn’t work for me either. I’m using the keyboard to type this out right now, and thanks to autocorrect my iPad is inserting apostrophes where theyre supposed to be (in most cases!). It’s really annoying – so close to being perfect but this is a huge problem – I feel lucky that it only happened to my apostrophe key and backslash…and not the letter “e”.

    The double apostrophe ” key works when you press shift+apostrophe, oddly enough.

    I really like this keyboard, but there must be a glitch or two in the software or compatibility.

    One last note: thanks to autocorrect, I feel as though I’m able to type faster with this keyboard. I just wish I could type an apostrophe!
