Deal still appears to be going strong. It was out of stock at the website for a little bit today, but in stock at a local Staples store. Last one on the shelf. It was priced $59.99 there, but the people at the customer service counter price matched when I pointed out the difference. Also tried to upsell me on a protection warranty and PC repair services, ugh...
Analysis of the KB (which I'm typing on right now), if you care:
The pre-installed batteries (generic AA rechargeable, can be replaced) were fully charged. KB can be recharged while you type by using a standard Type A to Mini-A USB cable. One comes with it, 6 feet in length, with a velcro tab attached to make it easy to store. Connects on the back right of the keyboard, rather than the center. Also included is an extension cable for the wireless receiver, several feet long. No software CD was included, though.
The low-profile keys require a little more pressure than you're probably used to. But illumination is evenly spread (white only, if that matters). Four levels, but even the lowest settings feels more than sufficient. Caps Lock key has a little green light on it that stays on when Caps Lock is set. Numlock and Scroll Lock do not have indicator lights. All three have large on-screen notifications when you toggle them.
I typed this sentence at about 15 feet from the receiver. Reception depends on how many nearby devices are also occupying the popular 2.4GHz frequency.

|esquire415||This is an excellent keyboard. Love typing on it. I got it for almost nothing with a wireless USB mouse as a package (Logitech Wireless Combo MK520 Wireless Keyboard). I missed the cut-off for the $20 rebate on both items ($40 total) by one day and would have had both items and $11 ahead!|

|tryzub||Thanks, OP! Great price on a well-received keyboard. Just picked one up at Amazon for the HTPC I'm putting together.|

Thx filupho (repped you)- seems it can handle at least 7 keys at a time with only minimal delay - definitely a decent response. Shame about the key shape; easy to slip around... and I don't see any information on its RANGE... I have gone through so many of these that sucked... remember the old line of site ones? how frustrating they were... then they finally went radio = and had about a 6 foot range... 10 if you were lucky and had no other devices on the same frequency around your house... Definitely tough to find one that can make it from inside a tv enclosure - across the room to your couch or kitchen / dining room...
Anyone have any idea of the Range capabilities?
There are a few left at a few local stores... could pick up about 6 if I wanted = if anyones desperate to get one pm me lol
I found a comment that I can not confirm:
"Pros: Amazing illumination, great distance coverage (2-5ft) , pillow like keys, sleek and lite weight, fast response
Cons: If battery is low or drained then response delays by .05 secs (completely drained)"
If it only goes 2 to 5 feet what a horrible joke this is for a keyboard!!
More info that I can not confirm:
"I had the illuminated one but sent it back to logitech after I found out the Shift + W + Spacebar doesnt work. I googled and saw the wireless version suffers from that same problem so how nice it may look, it's not a good keyboard for me, a casual gamer.""
So if shift/w/spacebar doesnt work = this keyboard is limited.

Dang now $49 on Amazon. Do I need a 2nd one of these.... must.... resist.
Honestly if you're on the fence BUY IT NOW. If you hate it you can return it to Amazon. But I really like mine.

I had to drive 20 miles to the next closest Staples but they had a few in Yukon OK. The girls held one for me. I got there and it was 59.99, But the price matched their site and then I used a 10 off 50.
Great price for this keyboard.

Not contesting that you didn't. Just saying you may have gotten one bad out of a bunch of good ones. Now if you got two bad keyboards, then quality may an issue. Seems to have good enough reviews on Amazon and Staples.

|z89s||Went into the store in Hermitage Pa and got one they were still $59.99 but I had them price match their website. They still had two left after I got mine. Thanks for this, I really wanted this keyboard. I have the wired one and its a great keyboard. I don't have any doubts that this keyboard will let me down.|

|darkwish||Seems like it's back in stock online?|

I just checked my local store here in Maryland and got the last one. Came up as 59.99 but I showed them the price on staples.com and got it for 49.99 plus tax.
Thanks very much!

|catalyst11||I placed my order pretty early yesterday and just got a call saying it's on backorder. Thing is last night, I decided I wanted to order 2 so I bought a $25 off $75 coupon and ordered 2 more. Hopefully they'll send the 2 right away. Was planning to cancel the order with 1 anyways.|
