There are a ton of YouTube videos on how great the Logitech MX Keys keyboard is for productivity. You can have one keyboard and it works across multiple devices and can easily move files from one without having to save the documents. Just drag the file from one device to the other. It’s that easy! This function is why I bought the keyboard in the first place. I wanted to be able to switch between my iMac, MacBook, iPad, and Pc without having to save to an online storage.

Mx Keys is a good productivity keyboard. I love the fact that I can pair up to three devices over Bluetooth or using the USB dongle. Once paired you can easily switch between paired devices without having to repeat the process.
Keys on MX Keys
I love the feeling you get when typing on the keyboard as it feels light and responsive. The reason for this is due to the scissor switches’ short pre-travel distance. The keys themselves are indented keys to help minimize typos. [insert squirrel] When typing on the keyboard you can expect a quiet typing noise and will not bother anyone around you. Just listen to this typing sample. [insert typing sample]. The typing experience is great. I love the feel of the keys. They just feel comfortable. I prefer the feel of the keys as your fingers tend to fall into place easily. Whereas, on other keyboards the depth of the key is very slight, and you can easily lose your finger placement.
The entire frame is made of a high-quality plastic that looks like metal. The keys are made from dense and good quality plastic. Overall, the keyboard feels sturdy and will not bend unlike the Apple keyboard.
Let’s get into MX keys ergonomics. It is a very straightforward keyboard that does not have any incline settings. So, you cannot adjust the angle. [squirrel] However, I believe that due to the keyboards low profile that you do not need a wrist rest. Although, Logitech does have a wrist rest available, but it does not come with the keyboard. Therefore, you will need to budget more money if you need the wrist rest.
Backlighting MX KEYS
The backlighting on MX Keys is outstanding. It has a build-in brightness sensor that turns the backlighting on automatically in the dark or you can adjust the backlighting manually. However, if you want RGN then you will have to look elsewhere as it is only available in white.
Connector & Battery On MX Keys
To charge the MX Keys you will use the included USB-C cable. While the keyboard is charging you can still use the keyboard as it communicates to the PC through the wireless transmitter. [squirrel]
I love the fact that this keyboard offers two ways to connect to your computer. You can connect using Bluetooth or use the included USB dongle.
Features of MX Keys
MX Keys has minimal features. It does include media buttons along the top of the keyboard, and they double as function keys when holding down the “Fn” button. The media keys can be reprogramed to a wide range of functions that can be easily accessed by pressing Fn+Esc. However, you cannot program macros to these keys. That is really a bummer. [squirrel]
