Logitech calls its $79 Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 an innovation in typing technology, and after using our evaluation model for a week, we certainly agree. The dual solar panels mounted on top of the superthin keyboard require zero user effort to keep the device charged and ready to type, and its low-profile keycaps and glossy black mirrored finish make it appear more like a laptop keyboard than its desktop counterparts.

Logitech's effort to push the K750's eco-consciousness also shows up at every turn, from the PVC-free chassis to the 100 percent recyclable packaging, and even the decision to include, rather than a CD, a link to the downloadable Solar App that displays exactly how much light is currently filtering through the panels. We were also surprised to see that no physical manual is included in the box; instead another link points you to an online manual available in PDF form.

With the exception of a glossy black chassis that unforgivingly reveals fingerprints and scratches, we can find little to complain about in Logitech's K750 solar keyboard. For $80, we're hard-pressed to find a better deal than the Editors' Choice Award-winning Logitech K750.
