Rated 1 out of 5 by from Given up on this rubbish First impression - looks nice, feels nice, like it. Couple of months later - Combined with the Windows 10 new feature (!!!) whereby the numlock reverts to off, most of the time, this has no numlock light and so no way of knowing whether it is on or off when you type your password. Aside from that, the reason I am ditching it is because there are a number of keys around the drfgcv area o the keyboard that require so much pressure that I have to go back and retype those letters 3 times out o 5. (Meant to be an f there at the end!). Would be fineif you are a single-finger typist, but not if you know your way around a keyboard.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product returned due to quality issues Bought to replace a Logitech S510 Wireless Deskset which had given long and trouble-free service. As oft noted, contemporary build quality simply isn't what it use to be and the MK520 was found to be a vastly inferior product, in both feel and performance. The keyboard was rather 'clattery' in use but the most annoying issue was its constant reverting to the US keyboard format. When a plug and play product is sold as 'UK format', should it not function consistently in that format? My other main gripe was that the mouse wheel had a stiff and 'notchy' feel to it, which was distracting and prevented a smooth and fluid scroll action. All in all, it was disappointing product in my view, which I quickly returned. Have since opted to buy a separate keyboard and mouse, neither of which is a Logitech product.

Does this keyboard have Number and Caps lock indicators?

Asked by: Anonymous
There is an LED indicator on the Caps Lock button, but not on the other lock buttons. You can configure an on screen notification through Logitech SetPoint which is compatible with this keyboard, or audible/visual indication through Windows accessibility settings.

Is the UK or US layout? The main difference is in enter key. UK - short enter, US - long enter. 

Asked by: Keziu

What batteries do these two actually take, and how do you replace them? It mentions they last for three years and 18 months, but no more than that.
