Logitech K270 Wireless Keyboard Review
If you shop for a wireless keyboard on a tight budget, you can do worse than a Logitech K270 wireless keyboard. Available for $ 20 on Amazon, the K270 looks and feels a little cheap, and it makes enough amount of racket as you type. That said, the K270 key feels relatively springy. The settings using Logitech’s “integrated” USB dongle could not be more comfortable.
Measuring 17.5 x 5.5 x 0.75 inches and weighing just over a pound, the Logitech K270 keyboard is predictable and inexpensive. Indeed, the entire keyboard will be supple if you try to bend it. While the K270 does not have a palm rest, the K270 has a pair of retractable legs that would support the keyboard at an 8-degree angle.
On top of the main keyboard, you will find a row of volume keys and select media playback, along with four hotkeys for Home, E-Mail, PC power, and Calculator. Of the four functional hotkeys, only three of them can be programmed. Between the options: You can set a key to open a web page or program, change applications, or set keystrokes. To customize the key, you must install the aging SetPoint utility from Logitech, unfortunately, with the newer Logitech application.
The K270 keyboard is connected to the system via 2.4GHz USB dongle. Plug the dongle into your the USB port, and the keyboard should start working immediately, no drivers needed. The K270 wireless connection worked flawlessly during my test, with the keyboard waking up almost instantly from a delay caused by inactivity.
The K270 keyboard natively supports Windows and Chrome OS devices. The keyboard will also work with Mac systems, but you won’t be able to adjust any shortcut keys.
The nuances of typing
While the K270 key feels hollow and cheap – not surprisingly for a $ 30 keyboard bundle – the actual typing feel isn’t bad. The key membrane force produces a substantial bulge of about half through key presses, with a satisfying springy jump. Discovery is not much of a problem due to the spacious keyboard design and the keys that formed. However, estimate the sufficient number of clicks when you type.
- Keyboard feel cheap
- Loud typing
- Only three programmable keys
- Limited Mac support
- Springy typing feel
- Super-easy setup
Conclusion > Logitech’s MK270 is one of the better choices you could make in the rock-bottom budget range because of its decent keyboard action and easy setup.
