Review: Logitech MX Keys Mini

Published

on

If you are a content creator, you know how important the right keyboard and mouse are. It can either make or break your entire workflow. Logitech is a brand that understands all of that and it kept that thought in mind when it set out to create a perfect keyboard for content creators.

Say “Hello!” to the Logitech MX Keys Mini. It’s the best wireless keyboard I have used in recent years. Featuring a minimalist design, the MX Keys Mini offers the best features of the standard-sized MX Keys, minus the Num pad. While the MX Keys Mini costs the same as the full-sized MX Keys keyboard, at $99.99, it also brings in lots of bells and whistles to make that investment worthwhile.

For starters, the MX Keys Mini includes a dedicated emoji key that offers relief to all the social media enthusiasts out there on the market. The emoji key also offers access to GIFs (powered by Tenor), Kaomojis, symbols, and the clipboard history. You also get a voice dictation key and a mic mute key that mutes on a system level.

In addition, there are a bunch of media control buttons such as play/pause, volume up and down, and mute. One of the features I really loved on this keyboard is its proximity sensors. These detect your hands and then illuminate the keyboard the moment your fingers approach the keys.

The backlit keys also automatically adjust to lighting conditions and turn off when you step away. Since the MX Keys Mini runs on built-in rechargeable batteries, this feature can increase the battery life of the keyboard. Charging the keyboard isn’t an issue – it uses a Type-C port to get charged.

According to Logitech, the MX Keys Mini stays powered up to 10 days on a full charge, or up to 5 months with the backlighting turned off. For this review, we used the MX Keys Mini for over two weeks and we still didn’t need a recharge. The keyboard also easily pairs wirelessly to up to three devices at a time via Bluetooth Low Energy.

The keyboard can also connect to PCs and Macs through the Logi Bolt USB receiver. This receiver, however, is not bundled with the keyboard and is to be purchased separately for a price of $14.99. The receiver can connect to up to 6 devices and offers a wireless range of 33 feet (10 meters).

Using the keyboard felt so good. The Perfect Stroke keys are very fluid and accurate and are very easy to hit. The overall build quality is very good, too. Logitech has used premium materials to build the keyboard and it shows. Even though the keyboard is small, it does have a heft to it and that itself is reassuring. The backlighting is also bright and the overall layout is very familiar.

For a price of $99.99, the Logitech MX Keys Mini isn’t a cheap keyboard. It also isn’t a keyboard for everyone. However, if you appreciate extra features on a keyboard that gell well with your overall workflow, you will like the MX Keys Mini. The Logitech MX Keys Mini thus walks away with the Gadget Voize Editors’ Choice award.

Price: $99.99
