Update 02/2021

Well, has been just about 1 year and my keyboard has started losing connection while typing frequently. I have a feeling it is one of the recent logitech updates that is causing it since it seems to have started after a small one around January 2021, but otherwise I haven't figured out any way to get it to stay connected. It does start working on it's own, but I'm not always closely watching the screen and it's possible to lose a lot of input if you aren't paying attention. Seems to be more common in certain programs as well which is why I think it may be a software issue, but downgrading my rating unless this stops or logitech issues a software update that fixes it. A $130 keyboard should not have connectivity issues, period.

Original
I migrated from a Microsoft Sculpt which I have extensive tested for 5 or 6 years of programming and love the keyboard but the proprietary connectivity is so bad I had to get something else.

Comparing this to the sculpt, the key layout is close but not exact, so it will have a learning curve before you get used to it. The wrist rest is better than the sculpt, but I still like the downslope that the sculpt has. This isn't bad, the sculpt is still a more natural feel for me based on my chair and desk height. Otherwise, this keyboard feels very secure on my desk, the keys are crisp with a short press distance but very good feedback.

Setup was super easy, paired on my existing usb receiver with no problem, also can pair with my laptop using bluetooth, which is a plus.

I don't really mind the no rechargeable batteries issue, I have current rechargeable keyboards and I have to recharge them every week or two, same with my MX anywhere mouse, so not a negative for me. My star deduction is for the lack of backlight. It's not something required, but in such an expensive product, it should be in there by default, MX keys and master both have backlit keyboards and are quite a bit cheaper.

Anyway, so far it's working great, I hope it lasts a long time, it's definitely not a cheap product. If it was illuminated and/or about 20% cheaper, it would be a 5 star product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Was great, either doesn't last or software updates make it suck
