First Look: Logitech Wireless All-in-One Keyboard TK820

We go hands on with the Logitech TK820, a keyboard and a touch pad built in

Hey! I'm Justin Yu for CNET. This is a first look at the Logitech TK820. So what Logitech has done here is combined a trackpad and a keyboard into 1 device for Windows 8 users that take advantage of all the touch gestures you can do. Stuff like swiping up and down with 4 fingers to maximize windows or sliding in from the left to get your charms bar. It's a pretty thin keyboard and it is made of plastic but it really doesn't feel cheap thanks to this battery compartment on top. You get 4 double-layer batteries inside the [unk] and Logitech tells us you can get up to 6 months of life out of it. Now obviously, there's really no way for us to test that but there is also a power button on the keyboard itself so you can save power while you're not using it. Since you get a trackpad on the right instead of a number pad, your also not gonna see the row of keys that usually seen above the arrows. Instead, the delete and insert buttons are now at the top right corner and you can use the function button to scroll up and down a page. So I spent 2 weeks using this as my main keyboard and the slightly-rounded keys actually make for a really easy typing experience. It actually feels more like a laptop keyboard and you really shouldn't have too much of a learning curve. The track pad, however, might take some getting used to. It's obviously larger than your laptop's trackpad so there's really no issue there, but you might need some time to memorize the thirteen Microsoft Touch shortcuts and once you're comfortable with that, you'll probably won't miss your mouse at all, unless you're using photoshop or playing a lot of pc games. Regardless, the option to switch to a touchpad is really convenient and for a $100 dollars, this is a much better deal than buying the 2 separately. You can read all the details in my [unk] on CNET but that's gonna do it for me. I'm Justin Yu. You just took a first look at the Logitech TK820 keyboard and trackpad. Thanks for watching.
