"More and more consumers want an easy way to access movies, TV programs,
music and photos with their PC connected to a TV," said Charlotte Johs,
global vice president of brand development for PC accessories at
Logitech. "Our new Illuminated Living-Room Keyboard K830 is designed
with this setup in mind. Backlit keys and a premium aesthetic that
blends into the living room make it a stand-out choice for people with
The Logitech Illuminated Living-Room Keyboard K830 atomatically dims or
brightens its backlit keys based on the amount of light in the room, so
you can type effortlessly in any lighting condition. Type and the keys
illuminate. Stop typing and the backlight turns off after five seconds
to help save power.
Designed for the modern living space, this keyboard is compact and
lightweight, with soft-feel keys that are optimized for media and
entertainment control. With the Logitech Illuminated Living-Room
Keyboard K830, you can relax, lean back and browse with a fast, reliable
connection to your PC from up to 33 feet away, thanks to the tiny
Unifying receiver that delivers advanced 2.4GHz long-range wireless
connectivity. The keyboard is also rechargeable, so you never need to
worry about changing batteries.
To avoid the awkward clutter of using a traditional keyboard plus a
separate mouse in the living room - not to mention the constant chore of
keeping track of both in your couch cushions - the home theater PC
keyboard combines these two capabilities into one device. The touchpad
is smooth and responsive with accurate cursor control, the rounded sides
of the keyboard make it easy to hold and the slim design allows it to be
stored vertically to save space.

available in the U.S. and Europe in April 2014, for a suggested retail
price of $99.99. For more information, please visit www.logitech.com
