Expanding its line from MX series peripherals in India, Logitech now originated this MX Keys keyboard. The keyboard was originally launched last year and is only now arriving in the country. As is the case with most of Logitech’s wireless offerings, the keyboard connects to devices via Bluetooth or via the included wireless USB receiver that you can connect to a USB Type-A port on your system.
MX Keys is a low profile keyboard that focuses on ergonomics and ease of typing with its concave keys, media control keys, a number pad, and full-size arrow keys as well. The keyboard uses Logitech’s “Perfect Stroke” keys, which come with a spherical plate design on the keys that match the shape of the fingertips for a more comfortable typing experience.
For a more stable build, the keyboard uses a single metal plate, and Logitech has also increased the stability of the keys to reduce noise and increase responsiveness. If you’re the type of person who uses their devices a lot at night, MX Keys has you covered with its white backlight. Additionally, the keyboard comes with a proximity sensor that automatically turns the backlight on when you approach the keyboard and turns it off when there has been no activity for a while, to conserve battery life.
Speaking of battery, Logitech claims the keyboard can last up to 10 days on a charge with the backlight on, and up to five months if this backlight is off, which makes me wonder how much battery this backlight is consuming. background? Anyway, the great thing is that you don’t need extra batteries on the keyboard. The MX Keys charges through a USB Type-C port, so charging it shouldn’t be a hassle.
The keyboard is compatible with Windows 10, macOS 10.11 and higher, Linux, Android 6 or higher, and iOS 9 or higher. It is priced at Rs. 12,995 in India, which is a steep price for a keyboard, but Logitech’s MX line is known for being easy to use and amazing, but not exactly pocket-sized.
