Another great keyboard from Logitech!,
This review is from: Logitech Wireless Keyboard K270 with Long-Range Wireless (Personal Computers)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Logitech makes great keyboards, and the K270 is no exception.
The K270 is a fairly standard full-size keyboard, but where it shines is in its slim dimensions. The keyboard is less than an inch thick, and weighs just slightly over 1 lb. This makes it perfect as a wireless keyboard. The USB unifying receiver is a tiny device, and can sync up to 6 compatible devices. Too bad the unifying receiver can't be used with the receiver in my Logitech G700 gaming mouse, as it would save a USB slot.
It comes equipped with 2 x AAA batteries (thanks for including them Logitech!) which can supposedly last 2 years before replacement, but only time will tell. The keyboard does come with a handy off-switch though. The keys are pretty flat, but I didn't find them uncomfortable to type on. The overall typing feel is very solid. Additionally, there are the usual shortcut hot buttons (volume control/calculator/Outlook/Internet home) at the top of the keyboard, but these can be re-programmed with Logitech's setpoint software, which is downloadable from their website.
Due to the keyboard's light weight, it's perfect to use with my HDTV as a monitor because portability is essential in this situation.
I do have one complaint, which I didn't notice initially. There aren't any indicator lights to show when num lock, caps lock, and scroll lock are on. It's not for a lack of real-estate on the keyboard either, and I missed these lights.
Overall, the K270 is an excellent basic wireless keyboard. Just one complaint, and the price is reasonable.

Zoidbergo, the keyboard does indeed have a CapsLock indicator (which I think is the most required from a practical pov - the others I can live without). It's just beside the On/Off button on the top right (atleast on mine!). As for NumLock & ScrollLock, including these, I'm sure, would mean a much reduced battery life & additional cost. As a workaround, just install a free app like NumCapsScroll or TrayStatus & have the indicators on the taskbar instead.

Please update your review to correct the bit about lacking Caps Lock indicator. Another M. James above, and another review here, http://www.amazon.com/review/R36U118DWQLZGG, indicate there is indeed a Caps Lock light.
