A month in and still working perfectly, fully charged all the time, good size, quiet, nice feel. Glad I got this keyboard.
Only 1 minor issues; very slippy, it doesn't have the usual rubber pads to stop it moving about, mine sits in the right position right up to the monitor base but it could cause a problem for some people.

Top marks for John Lewis & Logitech K750 keyboard
I purchased, online, the Logitech K750 Wireless Solar Panel Keyboard on 20th July 2012. This was my first online purchase from John Lewis and ordering it went smoothly and quickly. The keyboard arrived quickly - 2 days before I expected it to, which was a nice surprise.
The packaging was extremely good, giving excellent protection to the keyboard.
Installation of the keyboard was very easy, effectively connect and go. I chose this keyboard for 3 main reasons....
1. I have lots of cables running from my computer and want to get rid of as many as possible. So I wanted a wireless keyboard.
It does this very well, sharing a USB port with my Logitech wireless mouse. Even better is it being solar powered as I don't have to keep an eye on the battery level in case the keyboard dies on me. I've been using it for 3 weeks now about 4-5 hours a day and the keyboard has never been less than fully charged. The keyboard is situated in a north facing room about 6ft/2m from the only, average-sized, window. It responds as well as the cabled keyboard it replaced.
2. I wanted the smallest feasible desktop footprint to free up space on my desk. But I still wanted full-sized keys and key spacing. It does this very well.
3. I have also purchased a wireless mouse #Logitech also) and wanted to mimimise the USB ports being used. This keyboard uses use a Logitech's 'Unifying Receiver' which allow me to use several Logitech wireless devices via the single USB port. It's brilliant, takes a couple of minutes to set up and performs as well as a wired keyboard and mouse, but I don't have cable over my desktop.
In addition I find the keyboard very pleasant to use - which is good given the amount of time I use it each day!
Overall I give the whole shopping experience 10/10 - as I had no problems & delivery was quicker than I expected.

I've been using this keyboard for 3 weeks and am only not giving it 5 stars because, as other reviews I read mentioned, the 2 pop up legs are a bit weedy. Am using it with the legs in use and it's fine but they do feel prettty flimsy.
It's lovely to type on - very similar to a laptop. The solar power has worked flawlessly so far.
Even with the flimsy legs, I'd but another one!

Not really Mac compatible
Whatever virtues this keyboard may have, and there seem to be many, Mac compatibility is not one of them despite it being claimed in the description on the JL website.
The keyboard is set for Windows and there is no way to change them other than the Command and Alt keys. All the downloadable software is for Windows so, for example, the Caps Lock indicator which appears on screen as there is not one on the keyboard, is not available for Mac users.
Logitech make a version of this keyboard for Mac; something I was not aware of when I purchased this one and I shall try that one after this one has been returned.

Only had this for a few days, I am a reasonably fast touch typist and am finding it very easy to use. I learnt to type many years ago on a manual typewriter, achieving fairly fast, accurate typing speeds and have tried several keyboards and so far this is the best for me. I prefer a keyboard with no wrist rest at the front (as an old style touch typist I don't need this as my hands are above the keyboard# and this more than fits the bill for that.
No problems with the solar recharging, this is sited nowhere near a window #my pc desk is a good 16' away from any natural light), the keyboard is charging from the light in the room and I am getting 100% on the solar app that Logitech provide to go with this keyboard.

Lightbulbs and sunlight charge this keyboard
I am on my second one of these keyboards. The first one was faulty and within a week the rechargeable battery was flat and I could not get it recharged. JL were great and exchanged it for another no problem, I also contacted Logitech and they were really good and agreed to replace it and would pay all postage so hats off to both companies for customer services. Right so I am on my second keyboard and I am so say the least a little dubious it is going to work. I turned it off overnight and when I turned it on the next morning it was down to 50% charge although I must say it is charging up now so the jury is out and my fingers are crossed it is going to work! The keyboard is really nice to look at but it is a dust magnet (it does come with an antistatic cleaning cloth), it is very slim and it doesn’t take up much room on my desk which is good. I have read and do agree with a review written by someone who touch types and they said the keys are spaced a little further apart than normal so it’s really not a keyboard for a touch typist. The keys are very responsive and you don’t need to hit them very hard at all to work. Right good news in the time I have written my review the battery charge is up to 92% and I do not have the keyboard right next to a window. I am within 3m of a window as recommended by manufacturer, the solar app is on the minimum for recharging but it is recharging. So fingers crossed all is well with this keyboard. If it carries on working properly then I can say I love this keyboard great to look at space saving and stylish.
