Logitech K375s Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard $24.50 @ JB Hi-Fi

1390

I thought I did well by paying $40.50 for this keyboard on eBay 2 days ago.

Just noticed that JB dropped their price to $24.50 today.

      Connect to a computer with a tiny Logitech Unifying receiver, and to your phone or tablet with Bluetooth® Smart technology.

    OP: you could use eBay price guarantee to get back the difference? https://pages2.ebay.com.au/Best_Price_Promise

      you sir, are a hero!

      Just finished the chat with eBay and got money back (in the form of a coupon code)! Difference + 5%.
      Thanks for the suggestion!

        Fantastic to hear that these price beats works without too much hassle.

    I got one from office work but had to return it as the multi Bluetooth doesn’t work with my iPhone.

      Bluetooth doesn’t work with my iPhone.

      or anyone elses iPhone? Apple bluetooth has always been crippled.
      A pity, as I was hoping to use this with an ipad.

      Should've returned your iPhone instead =p

        Lol it’s ok if you don’t believe me. Just a warning for everyone intending to use it on their iPhone.

      That reminds me, I can get officeworks to beat the JBHIFI price!

      Keyboard works fine with my girlfriend’s iPhone 6S, so not sure why you had an issue.

        Some people seem incapable of configuring bluetooth. My parents are included in this category.

          My parents are the same, my dad struggles with a microwave 😂😂

          The only thing I found with this keyboard that wasn’t exactly explained the best I found was to enter in the number on the keyboard to complete the pairing, but wasn’t too difficult to figure out by reading the instructions a couple of times.

          @Porthos:
          I’ve given up using a microwave properly. Everything I heat is in multiples of the 30s quick start cook timer

        • +1 vote

          @ATangk: Lol. My mum does that … I actually do it sometimes now also, it seems kind of silly to do (instead of using it as intended) . However it is kind of a lazy-thinking way of setting microwave. Eg. When Im half asleep, and just need to heat something quickly, it is seems simpler to just push the 30 second thing as many times as required, instead of looking for each individual number there, locating keys, typing them in carefully. Slapping the 30 second button much easier :)

          @ozzpete: I always feel sorry for the 9 button when I hear stories like this.

          will leave this for anyone that hasn't seen it.

    +1 for having Mac keyboard marks on it

  •  

    Looks like a nice product but if you were sharing between and PC and Mac what solution would you use for your mouse ?

    •  

      Logitech MX Master 2s or Anywhere 2s

    •  

      Logitech Triathlon M720, longer battery life & cheaper than the MX master or Anywhere 2s

      possible cons: doesn't have dark field (you can't use it on glass) or the side scrolling wheel of the MX Master 2s.

      I use it with the Logitech K780 keyboard and the Logitech Flow software - all connected with bluetooth it auto switches the mouse and keyboard when you move the cursor to the edge of the screen.

      It even lets you copy and paste between the Mac and PC.

      Best thing about the M720 in this use case is the pairing switch button is at the top of the mouse so if the Logitech Flow software bugs out its easy to switch manually.

      Intermittently buggy but I have found it far superior to my previous setup of 2 mice and 2 keyboards!

  •  

    Reviews on this unit not great, crappy cheap quality, lag and connection cuts out, apparently. I'd give this a miss unless you really need an average multi device keyboard.

      That’s just the review on jb hifi website, which there are only 3, very small sample size. The reviews on the internet as a whole are quite good.

    Have one of these. I will try to be objective but I can still be biased (because I own one).

    Pros:

    • Can control 3 devices (1 via the unifying receiver, 2 with bluetooth or all 3 with bluetooth) - not at the same time
    • Mac key labels
    • Spill resistant
    • Free mobile phone stand

    Cons:

    • No PrtScn, ScrollLock, Pause/Break keys (fn key + Insert = Print Screen)
    • F keys are dual purpose (either operate as action keys or F keys)
    • No LED for statuses of F-Lock, Num Lock, or Caps Lock
    • You have to put keyboard in F-Lock mode (Fn+Esc) in order to perform key combos such as Alt+F4, Ctrl+F4.
    • In F-Lock mode, you cannot switch between devices (as F1 to F3 are locked as F1, F2, F3).
    • Keys aren't that great
    • Would have been better if the start key is labelled as Window key

    iPhone connectivity via Bluetooth does work, except after you entered the required pair code, you have to press enter on the keyboard.

    It's okay to use this on devices which are not your primary home/work PCs (where the F keys and PrintScreen key aren't important I guess) or entertainment type devices. Good price, but buy only if you need one.

    •  

      I used on my work desktop and laptop no issue. Both paired with usb. Fliw is great, just sometime keyboard is not switched with flow.

      For $24.5 i would recommanded to give ot a try.

        Are you using ot now? Surely hard to recommand?

        •  

          Nope I am typing with my fat finger on my G6

        •  

          Depends on your usage. If keyboard shortcuts are important to you (i.e. developers, semi-pros or pros using Adobe suite), you could still use it if you simply just use the unifying receiver (then you could leave it in F-Lock mode).

          On the other hand, if you compared this to most tablet Bluetooth keyboards or the cheap $10 or less junk on feeBay, this one is way better for tablets (except probably too big for some people). It is also the cheapest Logitech keyboard supporting both unifying receiver and bluetooth.

    check out this person taekeyboards…makes me appreciate typing this even more.

    some awesome videos https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCllGwtW6scxAjM28fIgEozg/vid...

    he also is on ozbargain i'm sure!

    •  

      Holy cow! Did not know making your own keyboard is a hobby. :D

      •  

        It was in the '80s.

  •  

    Would this work on my ps4/xbox1/android-TV ?
    I would never buy a keyboard for each of these 3 devices, as I couldn't find value enough for me personally. But for $24 for a keyboard for all 3, I would buy. Maybe good for searching up and adding things to netflix watchlists, then keyboard away again.

    •  

      You will need 2 extra receivers if they dont support bluetooth connection

      •  

        Try to connect keyboard and logitech mouse with one usb dongle on the computer first using logitech option. Then if you use that dongle with TV it should connect bothbkeyboard and mouse with one dongle.

        •  

          That means you need to move the dongle everytime?

    •  

      It has Bluetooth & works without the dongle.

  •  

    Bought mine from the Good Guys last weekend wait for it about 20 dolla

  •  

    Does anyone know if the usb dongle acts as a universal Bluetooth dongle or just works with Logitech unified devices? My desktop has no bt. Yes i still live in the 90s..

    •  

      It should include a unifying USB dongle for other Logitech peripherals that uses the tech (holding a box of the keyboard now)

      •  

        Thanks, but wanted to know if it works with other, non logitech, bt devices.

        •  

          No, it won’t.

  •  

    Can anyone compare this with the keyboard in MK345 combo. I'm using that keyboard with M720 mouse at the moment at work, want a keyboard that has unifying and doesn't feel flimsy (Mk345 has a nice keyboard).
    Edit: mk345 does not have a unifying receiver

    •  

      They gave me two for $45.50 - thanks OP.

      There’s 2 units in Brighton JB at store close this evening. Get in nice and early and you’ll get hold of one. The website will show no stocks if theres less than 3 units. That said you can try your luck at any store.

      •  

        Thanks buddy, really appreciated. I just picked up one of the units from Brighton on my lunchbreak. One still there if anyone else is interested. None in Springvale when I checked there yesterday. Typing on it now… definitely needs some getting used to, not the best typing experience.

    plenty at Knox Westfield this arvo.

  •  

    Just went to Officeworks to price match. Five dock still had 2.

  •  

    is this keyboard noisy?

    •  

      Normal (read stock OEM keyboard) level of noise, same quality of typing experience (not great). Sound level is nowhere near a gaming/mechanical board. I was using this (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/250079), which was much louder, and perhaps too loud for the small shared office I'm in.

  •  

    Hardly normal now have these for $22. Price matched at ow.

  •  

    Just received the keyboards this morning and found the issue of missing the first letter when typing after the keybord went to sleep. Checked around but no useful suggestion.

    Then I download the firmware and updated and now the keyboard runs smoothly!. Suggest you to update the firmware once you received it.
