First Look: Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750

2:23 /

Logitech's K750 wireless solar keyboard gets our Editors' Choice Award for being an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional input devices with convenient extras and at an affordable price.

If you're tired of replacing batteries on your computer keyboard, Logitech has a new solar-powered solution that earns our Editors' Choice Award. I'm Justin Yu, peripherals editor for cnet.com. This is your first look at the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750. The K750's killer app is the dual solar panels that powers the integrated lithium rechargeable battery inside. They also draw perpetual power from artificial light sources which means you don't have to be sitting by a window or even outside for the recharge. The lights in your apartment or above your desk at work are fine and the keyboard automatically senses and stores those charges in ambient light to keep the unit charged. Best of all, Logitech tells us a single two-hour charge will retain power for the keyboard for up to 3 months or more if you use the on/off switch in the corner. The K750 may take a little getting used to though in terms of typing if you're normally used to the generic keyboard that came with your computer. That's because the keys use scissor style switches underneath that you have a much shorter vertical clicking distance which means two things. First, the low profile switch is made for a typing experience that's a lot more like a laptop and a desktop keyboard. That means low noise and light touch for actuation. Second, the key switches also make the keyboard superthin. It's just one-third of an inch thick. Other notable features include Logitech's PerfectStroke uniform key structure and Unifying Receiver technology. So, Unifying Receiver is this USB port here that links your computer to the keyboard and it sticks out to just about half an inch of your computer and you can power up to six other Logitech devices at a time saving your precious USB ports for other peripherals. Finally, we're really impressed with Logitech's thorough eco-conscious design principles from the PVC-free chassis to the 100 percent recyclable packaging, and even a download link instead of a physical driver disk in the box. It shows the company is pushed to reduce the users footprint. For its affordability, eco-consciousness, and thoughtful feature set, we're proud to award Logitech the Editors' Choice Award and you can read all the details in our full review on cnet.com. But, that's gonna do it for me. I'm Justin Yu. You just took a first look at the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750. Thanks for watching.
