This is the Logitech Signature K650 Wireless Keyboard. This wireless keyboard offers some cool features that will help you to increase your productivity. I’ve been using this keyboard from a long time for personal and business use and I’ve noticed that even paying the premium price, some of the features can be improvised. So let’s find out if it’s worth buying or not.
In the box, we get a keyboard, user manual, USB stick and AA batteries.
Design & Build Quality
The keyboard comes in a plastic body but Logitech has used really good plastic material that gives a premium feel in hand. If your work includes typing for long hours then definitely, you will appreciate the palm rest support. The full-size keyboard weighs only 750 grams, so we can easily move it. I wish we had removable palm rest, then it would be a better option.
Connectivity & Compatiability
This Logitech signature K650 comes with Bluetooth 5.1 and 2.4GHz dongle support. I have used this keyboard within a 10-meter radius and I didn’t notice any latency lag or drop issue. It also offers multi-device support, so it’s really good for office and personal usage. We can pair this keyboard with 3 devices. Two devices can be used in Bluetooth mode and the third with we need a 2.4GHz dongle. I have tried this keyboard with all major platforms, from windows, Mac, Linux and Android and it works perfectly. I didn’t face any compatibility issues.
What I like the most is the customization of the functions key (FN1-FN12) as it comes with a handful of shortcuts. We can use these function keys to adjust the brightness, take a screenshot or mute/unmute the conference call.
As these function keys are completely customizable so we can change the key for better usage. My work focus on document editing and coding so I have set up these keys on Ctrl + C and Ctrl-V for copy and paste and I did find this feature helps to improve the workflow. If you use a lot of shortcuts while coding or editing documents then these key customization features can be quite useful for your daily workflow.
On windows PC I have used Logitech software for key customization and I find it really simple and easy to use. In simple 3 clicks, I was able to customize all 12 function keys, for easy customization we also get key combination recommendations so we don’t need manually assign keys to shortcuts.
This keyboard is compatible with all the popular operating systems, we get the mac command and windows start button.
On the top side, we do get dedicated media keys to control the playback to play, pause or adjust the volume.
The typing experience on this keyboard is quite good, keys feel fast and responsive. It is a membrane keyboard but, we do get a clicky keystroke which sounds similar to a mechanical keyboard.
I had a pretty good typing experience on this keyboard, but due to its compact layout, I did notice accidental hits on the side keys. The key caps are of large size and really close to each other causing the issue of an accidental hit. It would be better if we got spacing between keys, anyway once you get used to this keyboard it won’t be an issue.
I’m using this keyboard on Bluetooth mode for the past 5 days and I didn’t notice any single percentage drop in the battery level. According to the company, this keyboard can last up to 36 months but even if this keyboard can last for 24 months then it’s a really good deal.
Now the question is should you consider this keyboard or not? basically, it depends upon your usage, if you frequently switch between office and personal laptop or looking for a wireless keyboard for casual web browsing. Then this keyboard fit perfectly for your office and personal use.
