The Good The ergonomic keys on the Logitech TK820 are a pleasure to touch, the integrated touch pad is fully compatible with 13 Windows 8 gestures, four AA batteries last for an impressive six months of use, and the convenient Unifying Receiver plays nicely with other Logitech peripherals.
The Bad Nighttime users will lament the lack of backlit keys, and there's no indication of remaining battery life.
The Bottom Line With a spacious touch pad, a satisfying typing experience, and impressive battery life, the Logitech TK820 is well recommended if you're looking to add an external input device to a Windows 8 desktop without a touch screen.
