The packaging is fairly simple it just a thin cardboard box with the design of the keyboard on the front to show you what it actually looks like. It has bullet points down the side to show the key features of the keyboard, It's name and more importantly the best thing about this keyboard that it lights up in the dark. On the packaging the picture does make it seem a lot smaller than it actually is but I can say this is a good normal full sized keyboard. Inside the keyboard has a plastic bag over it, it comes with wires, manuals and leaflets and the Unifying receiver.

This does come with a USB cable this is to charge your laptop up so first of you need to charge the keyboard up before you can use it wireless your pc or laptop should automatically pick this up and tell you it has been detected if this doesn't do that (which if you have all updates on your pc/laptop it should) then it does have an installation disk but you shouldn't need to use it to install the Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800.

Just plug the receiver into your computer tower and when you unplug the keyboard from the USB it will automatically pick the signal up. This keyboard is Compatible with PC's or laptops with windows XP and above it won't work with anything lower than XP so if you haven't already done a simple update to XP I suggest you get to it right away if you want a better keyboard like this.

The keys on this are rounded rather than squared keys which does make it nicer to type and more easier somehow however the keys along the bottom aren't so rounded but are curved around the edges they are also raised a little I'm not sure of the purpose of this at all but it does help to type I must admit. The keys are set a little lower as well and the keys are very thin, this helps to creature a tiny sound when typing rather than hearing someone bash on the keys when they're typing really fast. The keys are slightly blurred if you look closely and if you feel across them it is completely smooth rather than slightly raised like other keyboards I have had. The type of writing for the letters on the keyboard has been changed to slightly rounded as well, I'm guessing they think this is easier to read but I don't look when I'm typing I look at my screen anyway so these features don't make to much difference to me.
other details. The main feature of this is that there is an ambient light behind the keys. There are 4 levels of brightness you can adjust this to so it is suitable for you, this is a great idea as some people like myself do sit in the dark when on the computer but that's mainly because I can't be bothered to go turn the light on.

This is not cheap in the slightest, I bought this from PC world a while ago now when they had a sale on and this was reduced to £35 from £70. which will shock a lot of people I'm sure. I used to buy asda's smart price ones because I drop them all the time somehow and I'ms tillr eally scared of breaking this one but I'm doing okay so far.

Advantages
* The keys are small and thinner which create a small sound when typing
* You can move your hands more fluently across the keys when typing
* You don't have to sit really close because of the wireless connection
* The back light of the keys allows you to see in the dark

Disadvantages
* Because there's no wire I seem to still drop this one and I don't know how
* The price is very high
* only compatible with windows XP and above
* wireless connection doesn't always work.

It would be wasted on me as i don't look at the keyboard when typing but I like the concept!
