Review: Logitech K380 Multi-device Bluetooth Keyboard

The Logitech K380 is a compact portable bluetooth keyboard that can be paired with 3 devices (Windows, Mac, Android, iOS).

The design looks good with rounded corners and buttons. Edges are beveled. This keyboard is available in blue, black, rose and off-white.

It uses two AAA batteries and it's rated to have two-year battery life.

I actually bought this to replace my Logitech K811 keyboard that I've been using for years. I use this new keyboard in the living room with my Mac Mini that I use for streaming movies.

To pair with a device, you just have to press and hold one of the three device buttons. It's bluetooth connection only. There's no USB wireless receiver.

The modifier keys are designed for Windows and MacOS and will switch according when the OS is detected.

The arrow keys are half height.

Function buttons are pre-programmed as media control buttons.

The Logitech driver can be used to make the function buttons perform as function buttons, F1, F2, etc.

There are also four functions buttons (F4, F5, F6, F7) you can configure for shortcuts. You can set your own keyboard shortcuts or choose from pre-programmed commands, namely:

  • Launchpad
  • Keystroke assignment
  • Open application
  • Advanced click
  • App Expose
  • Back
  • Brightness down
  • Brightness up
  • Calculator
  • Desktop (left)
  • Desktop (right)
  • Finder search
  • Forward
  • Full screen
  • Input language
  • Look up
  • Middle button
  • Minimise window

  • Play/pause
  • Previous
  • Right click
  • Screen capture
  • Scroll left
  • Scroll right
  • Search
  • Show desktop
  • Smart zoom
  • Volume down
  • Volume up

The chiclet style keys have good travel and feedback. Typing experience is excellent.

The Logitech K380 looks good, performs well and has long battery life. This is definitely worth the money and is something I can recommend easily to anyone.
