  • Is it Bluetooth only, or does it also work via USB?

    For example, I need a wireless keyboard to connect to a Laptop, Tablet & TV. While the first two have Bluetooth built-in, the TV only accepts USB-Keyboards – and I doubt that any common USB-Bluetooth dongle would work.

    Maybe Logitech should offer USB-Bluetooth dongles that can be paired using a PC, which then present themselves as USB-Keyboards when plugged into other machines, as an accessory to this keyboard.

  • What are the physical Specifications (H,W,D) of the keyboard and will this be made available for sale in Australia?

  • Sounds really good! Can you elaborate how ‘charging while typing’ does work? This means it will charge without being connected to USB?

    • Hi Juan. Thanks for your suggestion, but we cannot comment on future products at the moment. Please keep an eye on our blog and website for updates.

  • Great work!! I can easily go with that one!

    How about bundling this K810 keyboard with the newly announced Touch Mouse T620 both in Bluetooth flavors??

    It would be a great upgrade of my aged Logitech Revolution and Mouse and Keyboard (both Bluetooth).

    Only thing missing from the keyboard are the shortcuts for the charm menu buttons,(that now comes as standard to all new Microsoft keyboards) but is not that big of a deal for me as I assume the F1-F12 buttons will be programmable.

  • Is there an option to turn off the backlighting? if yes, how long do you think will it extend the life span of the battery? Just asking because my Apple Bluetooth keyboard lasts me months and this new keyboard interests me.

    • Yes, you can dim the backlighting with the F5 key. To turn the backlighting back on, you can either press the F6 key or turn the keyboard off and back on. If the backlighting is turned off, the keyboard battery life is expected to last about 8 months, but this varies based on usage.

  • Any plans for a version including a num pad? That would make it an excellent device to sit on the lap and operate a PC from across the room (for gaming or media centre use).

  • Will it be able to switch back and forth between the 3 devices with a switch of key combination? Like a KVM? This would be even nicer with a touch Pad on the side. :D

  • Yeah, sounds really good!
    But will there be a possibility to connect it to ‘normal’, not having Bluetooth, Computers?
    Maybe a wire which can be used?

  • Looks like Logitech is taking an ever close step the ideal keyboard I would like to buy.

    As a current user of the K750 Solar and the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard, I always wished that Logitech will utilize their best technology to make the best product.

    Wish there was a wireless illuminated keyboard, with number pad, with solar charging and used unity wireless.

  • You mentioned in a previous comment post that you support a macbook but you said iOS. Do you support iOS and OS X or just iOS?

  • Looking forward to this keyboard !
    I work from home and use the same display for both my laptop for work and my desktop computer for personal use. I will finally be able to use one keyboard and not have to plug, unplug into the computer i’m using ! great news !

    One question,
    my desktop and laptop does not support Bluetooth, will the keyboard come with two Bluetooth adapters ?

    • Hi Joel, the Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 works with Windows 7 and 8, iOS, and Android devices. Let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you.

  • When will this be available internationally?
    I’d like to buy it, or at least preorder it but I can’t in Australia.

    Might have to look elsewhere if I can’t buy it in a timely fashion (Anything over a month later IS NOT timely)

  • So this will work with iPads (iOS), but will not support Apple computers running Mountain Lion, Lion, or Snow Leopard? (OSx)

  • will it include keyboard profiles? Depending on the connected device, they keyboard can switch profiles to suit the device attached. Since this is likely going to be used with tablets, pc’s and phones, this would be an excellent feature.

    • The keyboard features Logitech’s easy-switch Bluetooth technology so you can easily type on and switch among your PC, tablet or smartphone with one touch. All you have to do is press the Bluetooth key that is associated with the device you wish to use!

  • Hello, I am a long term user of Logitech products.

    Would be interested to own a K810 keyboard if it if it would have a numeric pad included.
    Is there a keyboard with this feature to be released in near feature?

    With regards, Moshe.

    • Hi Moshe. Thanks for being a fan of our products. Unfortunately, we cannot comment on future releases at the moment. Please stay tuned for updates.

  • Hi, I’ve been looking for a multi-pairing capable, thin, bluetooth keyboard with slide on-off switch, and I think this is it. Plus backlit keys. Very nice.

    1. Does it come with a carrying pouch or a cover? If not, I’ll have to ‘custom sew’ it myself!
    2. Does it automatically recognize the operating system? I mean do we NOT have to remap the control, windows, alt keys to command, control, option keys.
    3. Does it come in iOS keyboard layout? or do we have an option to replace keycaps?

    It would be absolutely fascinating if it automatically recognizes the operating system AND display “ctrl, windows, alt” or “control, option, command” alternatively depending on the OSs connected.

    • Hi, we’re so glad you like it! We do not have a pouch for it, and we’re sure you can make a great one! Yes, it will recognize the system, and the layout comes specifically for Windows 8. Hope this helps!

    • This keyboard works with iOS devices. You can press the F11 button to reach the iOS Home Screen and press Function + Escape for the iOS Lock Screen.

  • Just picked up the K810 from BestBuy. I am using it on a Windows 7 machine, a Mac Mini (OS X Lion 10.7.5), and an iPad (iOS 6). It works great across all 3 and allowed me to unclutter my desk and keyboard tray quite a bit.

    I’m looking forward to a bluetooth mouse that switches with/through the K810.

    This is basically a very cool bluetooth keyboard and KVM combined. Thank you so much for creating it!

  • What are the dimensions? Since it has Android as a purpose, I suspect that it is small & compact. Possibly with smaller then standard keys. I was not able to find these specs online.

  • Does the K810 have the Mac special keys like option, cmd, etc? I don’t see them in the picture, yet it’s said this is Mac compatible?

    Are there two different models of the K810?

  • Will this keyboard support “True Boot” like the DiNovo does? That is will it allow you to enter and control the BIOS on a PC? If not would this allow you to enter a password into PGP whole disk encryption at boot?

  • Any idea when in November the 810 will be available in Europe (specifically the Netherlands)? I really, really, really want one. :)

  • After installing Setpoint that came with the new 810 Illuminated bluetooth keyboard, my MX 518 mouse is no longer recognized. If I try to install the previous version of Setpoint that I was using, it says I can’t. What can I do about this as I was using the older setpoint to adjust sensitivities and assign keys to the side buttons of my MX518.

    • Hi there, Manny. We apologize for the issue. Please get in touch with our Support Team at +1 646-454-3200 to talk with a representative who can help with this. Thank you.

  • I resolved it by not installing the new Setpoint. The keyboard still works with the older Setpoint even though Im missing a few minor features.

    Another issue I discovered is that I can’t get into my PC’s BIOS when botting up. Since there is no bluetooth connection when the computer starts booting up, I’m unable to press DEL, which is what activates entry into BIOS. I figured Logitech would know this and make the charging cable a direct connection from the 810 to the computer, bypassing the bluetooth requirement. But it seems you didn’t. So if I need to enter BIOS, I have to use a hardwired keyboard.

  • Since i’d most likely use this between a mac and pc, i didnt see it in the pictures but will it or does it have the mac charaters for like option etc on it?

  • Please,
    Numpad!
    I, as a professional in music and graphics need it in alsmost ANY apllication.
    Would buy it right away.
    Thanks

  • Hi,
    I just bought the new K810 keyboard. Great item!
    I paired it with my PC (Windows 7) without problems. Then I paired it with my iPad, here it also went straight through except for the keyboard letters that, despite being defined QWERTZ on my iPad settings, writes like AZERTY. So anytime I type a “Q” I get an “A” instead.
    Do you know how can I fix this issue?
    Many thanks!
    Gabriele

  • Hi guys,

    I’m from Switzerland but used to the US international layout.
    Unfortunately when I want to select a keyboard with this layout on the Swiss webpage of Logitech, it is missing.
    Is there any way that I can order the classic, US layout here ?
    For the K310 washable keyboard that I ordered, I had the option to chose that layout…

    Please help me out.
    Thank you,
    Mihai

    • Hi Mihai, thanks for your interest in the K810 keyboard. Our support team will be able to help you out regarding getting the layout that you want. The numbers for support in Switzerland are:

      Italiano: +41 (0) 22 761 40 20

  • Hi,

    I just called there and found out that the US international versions are not available for Switzerland keyboards.
    This leaves me to wonder why 1 week ago I was able to order the K310 washable keyboard with an US International layout and now the same part number appears under Dutch layout while the US int has disappeared from the list of choices.

    I’m confused and don’t know what to understand of this (will I need to ask someone in the USA to mail me a keyboard even if 2 weeks ago ordering one was possible ?)

    Regards,
    Mihai

  • When is K810 keyboard going to be available in the uk, I have pre ordered one and was told it was going to be released in November, It is now 6th December.!

    Can someone tell me why it has been delayed and when it is likely to be released I the UK.

    Thanks!

    • Hi Peter, we are currently looking into this and will let you know as soon as we can. In the meantime, we invite you to reach out to the Online Support Team at +44 (0)203 024 81 60 to talk directly with a representative regarding this.

  • Hello

    Nice keyboard, but is there a way to use on mac osx with a correct mapping of keys ?

    Thanks

  • The keyboard is awesome, but I’d love to see a version of this with (white) Mac keys. I also don’t really mind a cable, so USB would be cool too. What I basically want is Apple’s aluminum keyboard with backlight. If Logitech manufactured such a keyboard, I’m sure you’d sell bucketloads to the Mac community.

  • After waiting and age for my keyboard to arrive it did today! On the outside of the box is a picture of the UK version with the pound sign and the @ sign in the right place.
    Was not best please to discover on opening the box that the keyboard inside is a US version with the pound sign missing and @ where ” should be.
    Nice one Logitech!
    Also, there are rather sharp scratchy bits on both sides of the keyboard where the different materials meet. Does not feel like an £89 keyboard.
    So wrong keys and poor finish.

    • We apologize for this inconvenience, Ian. Please reach out to our Sales Team at +44 (0)203 024 81 60 to discuss this with a representative directly to help resolve this matter.
