    This is one of those times you researched and purchased something then find it later that day on Ozbargain. But I didn't end up with this one… I couldn't see how MX Keys was any better than the MK850, which I price matched from Bing Lee @ OW for $113.

      You don't "see" how the MX Keys is better than the MK850, you feel the difference. And it is a significant difference.

      I would have recommended you try it at a store like JB HiFi. But given you have already bought the MK850, I'm just going to say you don't know what you've missed out on.

        Thanks 'CrushJelly', I took your comments to heart and changed my OW price beat to the MX Keys instead. Admittedly my home research was never going to be as good as feeling the product, so a dose of reality from yourself and 'Gallifr3y' was all I needed to get the superior product.

          If this is legit, and you actually changed to the MX Keys: well done and I guarantee you won't regret it.

          Also, I guarantee this keyboard has now ruined your life, as you will never settle for any plain old membrane keyboard unless it's as good as the MX Keys LOL

            @CrushJelly: Admittedly your first comment had a certain tone to it, but it also had a good point. So… I bought the better keyboard.

            •  

              @drycleanonly: If you must know… there is a wealth of knowledge available on Google, YouTube and even from other OzBargain users explaining why the MX keys is regarded as one of the best (if not best ever) membrane keyboard available.

              Your initial comment disregarded all of that by comparing it to a standard keyboard and not giving the MX proper due consideration, akin to saying "I can't see how that Ferrari is better than the Corolla because they both have 4 wheels". The hint of arrogance and ignorance in your original comment was the reason for the "tone" in mine.

              If you had asked "how is this better than an MK850? I just can't see how it is. Someone enlighten me", then the sentiment in the reply would have been very different.

      I custom build mechanical keyboards, like they end up costing $700-1000 and I can say this is hands down one of the best consumer market keyboards, if not the best.

      I just wish they would make a TKL version.

      The keys have an excellent tactile feel to them.

        I'm quite enjoying the Drop CTRL - Default :)

    Bought one earlier, great keyboard. You can apply the same pricematch to the MX Master 3 for $120.32 : https://www.digidirect.com.au/logitech-mx-master-3-wireless-...

    good price. however, if you are used to (and like) mechanical keyboards, it may or may not be for you.

    I bought one 3 weeks ago during the latitude sale out of sheer curiosity due to stellar reviews. It's an excellent keyboard, well built and fantastic typing experience. if you are however, used to the much larger travel distance of some mechanical keyboards (I'm comparing with MX cherry browns - which itself feels different depending on brands and keycaps) - you might need some getting used to the mx keys as their low profile also does mean lower travel distance.

    It gives a solid silent thump and feedback at the end of every stroke which is excellent, and lacks the clickaty clakety that you (or your partner/coworkers) may or may not like. The keys also feel closer together due to their low profile and I kept hitting the wrong keys by mistake.

    All in all, it really is the best non mechanical keyboard I've ever used, but for my own personal preference I still prefer the Filco Majestouch Convertible 2 - a mx cherry brown wireless mechanical full size keyboard as my favourite of all time (there are different variations of this keyboard).

    •  

      Yeah the “MX” moniker is a bit cheeky, although the MX series of mouses has been around a while, it does draw a direct comparison to mechanical keyboards.

      I’m personally looking for a replacement for my original Apple magic keyboard, so the low profile typing is definitely my preference.

    •  

      I think it’s personal preference, this is a great kb for typing and office work.

      I also have mech kb with blue switches and enjoy that too.

      It is near impossible to game on the mxkeys as all the keys are mashed together (incase anyone are wanting to go down that pathway)

        100% personal preference definitely.

    I got it for $129 using Latitude Pay + Harvey Norman price match last time, it's a good keyboard but I wouldn't really pay over $150 for it. The typing feel is quite good but other than that it's just a simple wireless keyboard with decent battery life and ability to pair up to 3 devices in a thin body (which is always on a slight incline and not height adjustable).

      I just can’t bring myself to use any of the Buy Now Pay Later providers for deals. I’m fine with a CC, as I pay it off in full each month, but a BNPL is a little more to keep on top of than I care to offer brain space to, so I steer clear.

      I’m particularly keen on the number pad which is a relatively rare inclusion in wireless keyboards.

      •  

        Yeah I understand your sentiment, I pretty much never use Latitude Pay unless a Latitude Pay deal comes up. And after ordering I always make sure I go to Latitude and pay it off immediately.

    •  

      Agree, $130-140 would be enough for one of those, I've not tried but heard they are good. Got a mech witout number pad which is kind of better (not getting in the way of the mouse, but miss a little bit - separate calculator fixes that). The 3 device is the main selling point, good on my mx vert mouse.

      •  

        Flow is another big selling point for me

        •  

          as in easy to type on?
          I'd get it no brainer if i needed two PCs connected, then again this mech one has two separate usb c slots so could unplug one, and have a spare cheap logi, need to stop looking for crap to buy on here :P

          •  

            @G-rig: Nah Flow is a software feature of the higher end Logitech gear which means switching between machines is as easy as dragging your mouse from one screen to the next.

            •  

              @readeral: No way, haha. I was thiking of inventing that to go from your computer to phone over wifi, (bit like airdroid 15y ago)

    I have Dell KM717 Premier Wireless Keyboard and Mouse. The keyboard is reallly fantastic, while the mouse is not suitable for my hand. Really recommend it if you want several devices and may want to quickly and frequently change between deivces.

    •  

      The appeal of Flow along with my MX Master was too strong an allure. I have a MacBook Pro and a desktop PC and the benefit of moving between them automatically was a good selling point. We’ll see if it’s able to provide what’s promised…

        If you have an M1 mac the experience is hit and miss - there are several forums about it.

        I have this and its fine from PC to MAC but MAC to PC is an issue.

        Not sure if this has or will be fixed.

        The keyboard is easy enough cause there are buttons to switch. The mouse has the same but you have to turn the mouse over to access the button to switch.

        That said - great keyboard and mouse

        •  

          Mac to PC an issue? Bummer. Oh well, we'll see what happens! My previous MBP wouldn't play nice with my MX Mouse, this one (16" 2020) is much better behaved.

        My mate has a fair bit plugged into his Dell UW 49" with the ogi MX Master 3 Advanced keyboard mouse combo

        CalDigit thunderbolt 3 dock. Great (portable) size with full power and port support. I also have the dell wd19dc for my precision 7540. I have heard that the Kensington T3 dock is also good, and think they have a T4 version out.

    Great keyboard. I initially had some issues with the backlighting not automatically turning on, but that was solved by a firmware upgrade.

      Good to know!

  •  

    I am so tempted to buy a second one just for the office. Only we have hot desks so stuff carrying around my own keyboard!

    •  

      I just bought a second one for home. Primary is for the office. Hahaha

  •  

    Is this actually expired and I'm missing something or was that done automatically? Was planning to go to an Officeworks this morning to price match.

    •  

      Expiry date must have been set incorrectly, may have expired automatically as the website is still showing it at that price. Try your luck with officeworks regardless (as long as the site is still showing it for that price at the time you actually go there).

      •  

        I didn’t actually set an expiry cause the website had no indication how long the sale would last. Guess just the association with Click Frenzy meant it got closed off

  •  

    I just price matched at OW about 5 minutes ago. I did it over the phone.

  •  

    Price matched today. Cheers OP
