1. The keyboard is silent to type on - very nice - but this gives the keyboard a very mushy feel. You won't want to use this keyboard for any kind of serious typing, ever. Not even medium serious. This is by design, so be aware: it's meant for the minimal amount of typing you need to do to find the next episode of Walking Dead, not for anything more.
2. The keyboard is meant to be held in your hands or on your lap. When sitting flat, it is FLAT on the surface - there are no adjustable feet. But when you are holding it the way it's meant to be used, there's a left-click mouse button conveniently located on the top left edge that makes it easy to use your right hand to scroll and left hand to click.
3. The manufacturer is very consistent in its denial that Linux exists or that Linux users would be interested in its products. They just don't care. So, there end up being things that can only be configured using a Windows program. This can be inconvenient and frustrating if the last Windows box you owned was running Win3.1. Fortunately most of these things don't seem too critical, but one that is for me is that the touchpad will click far too easily - even if you push down a few milligrams too heavily while scrolling. Apparently this is configurable, just not for us insignificant Linux users. Also, the "enhanced gestures" won't work with Linux. Although, not sure exactly what those are...
4. The backlighting and room-lighting sensor work well (although my first unit had a failure with this feature and had to be returned). It's easy to use and navigate with in the dark or low light. There is no Caps Lock indicator so you can find yourself Caps locked without knowing it.
5. The keyboard and touchpad collect grease and fingerprints like it was a magnet for them; just seems to be a function of the kind of plastic being used. My high quality keyboards and touchpads don't exhibit this phenomenon. If you eat while watching TV, some of your food is gonna end up as a streak on the touchpad.
6. It's kind of expensive for what it is. To me $100 seems unwarranted, and even $80 seems a bit steep. They appear to be marketing this as a higher-end luxury product, but it's really not. Premium textures and metal-like finish, pffft, not really.
7. The battery in this keyboard requires periodic recharging via a USB cable. Unfortunately the connector is a USB mini-B connector, which is well-known to have high-failure rates after being plugged and unplugged too many times, so be careful when charging or you will trash your keyboard over a stupid USB jack.
8. I've not yet tried the Bluetooth connection so I can't report on how that works. The Logitech mini-USB dongle connection works fine, and they include a USB extension cable in case your TV or computer has USB ports that block the dongle's wireless activities.
All in all, nice to have a combination keyboard/trackpad like this in my own HTPC setup because for the most part it works well. I just wish it wasn't presented (and priced) as such an upscale luxury item.
* If you hit Fn+Ctrl+Right-click, you can disable tap-to-right-click on the touchpad. This is fantastic because it prevents accidentally selecting something when you tap the touchpad. To my knowledge, this is the only media keyboard with integrated touchpad and backlight that does this. I have the Corsair K83 -- which cannot do this and is annoying because its touchpad is super sensitive. I have other gripes about the Corsair K83 -- like the giant right-click button on the right-hand side of the back, which is too easy to accidentally push when you are picking the K83 up with your right hand -- but I will not get into too much detail with them here.
* Battery life last three to four weeks for me, and I use it as my daily-use keyboard. I just turn it off when not in use.
* Backlight is bright and has not dulled after almost three years of use.
* It's sturdy plastic, which is great for one-lap or two-lap use. It doesn't bend when typing on uneven surfaces.
* Keys have perfect spacing for touch-typing.
* Keys are kind of mushy, but have a positive actuation. Basically, the feel isn't snappy but the key travel is even, even when you hit the corner of the key. When you hit the corner of a key, the entire key moves -- which is good because you can positively tell when the key has been pressed. My dislike of the mushiness is just personal preference.
* Logitech seems to have stopped making this, and I can't buy another one anymore.
First is one technology that does not require a "wireless receiver" dongle, while second does and this dongle is an USB device.
So, here I say only about connecting this Logitech K830 to smartTV. Yes, the item description itself does not tell you can connect it to smartTV, but I've tried.
Most if not all Smart TV sets have USB port(s).
Some of the SmartTVs may also have Bluetooth "capability", meaning they can pair with Bluetooth device.
1. Connecting smartTV with USB: you have to know if it'll be even possible. You may not be able to tell it until you try. TV manufacture most likely won't give you compatibility sheet and if you have it, I bet this relatively new Logitech K830 device will not be listed there. I have 2 Samsung TVs 8th and 9th series and this keyboard does not work with both of them (via USB). I have Microsoft mouse/keyboard connected wirelessly with USB receiver to Samsung 8th series and it works perfectly, right off the bat. So, I was disappointed that K830 does not work via USB with my smartTVs.
2. Connecting smartTV via Bluetooth: if your TV set is capable, then you may try. I've tried and, after few attempts to pair, I got it connected. Hooray! Keyboard is responding and mouse moves in Internet Browser app on TV.
My notes: Keyboard is not fully functional if connected to smartTV. There are plenty functional keys that do not react. Hot keys such Volume - do not react as well. But, let's be positive: I can type to search in Youtube app and Internet, I can move mouse and click (Internet only), I can do everything I was able with Microsoft wireless USB combo.
I consider my experiment is a success and now I'll be using this combo with smartTV via Bluetooth.

The symbols on the keys don't correspond with the symbols that are printed, and the layout can't be changed.
Suggestions from logitech support have been useless.
It took so long to arrive that I'm now stuck with an expensive irritating keyboard.
Range is great... keys light up nicely for working in the dark with media content, and the trackpad works well as a mouse replacement. The form factor is great for use on your knees. Keys feel nice to type on and while it's not "full travel" it doesn't feel like a horrible chicklet keyboard (I'm looking at you Apple).
The only thing I'n not keen on is the slightly aggressive 2 finger scrolling, but I'm used to the Apple magic trackpad which is the gold standard. I'm sure its as good as any PC trackpad you may have used ;-)

It is stupid to sell the American keyboard layout in the UK market. Even if you change the keyboard language, you're stuck with a non-standard layout and important keys like @ and " in reverse positions (and no £ symbol on the keyboard at all).
