Logitech already introduced the MX Keys at the end of 2019. This is a wireless keyboard from the popular Master series, which is primarily aimed at professional users, creatives and programmers. Among other things, it offers new Perfect Stroke keys for precise, smooth and natural keystrokes, quiet switches that allow use in any location, including offices, a backlight with proximity sensor and a battery life of up to five months. Typical Master Series features like Easy-Switch, pairing with up to three devices, and flow support are, of course, also on board.

The Logitech MX Keys comes in a compact black cardboard box, here you come fortunately without any plastic. The packaging design is based on the other devices of the Master series, on the back of the box, as usual, the most important features are advertised. Inside are the keyboard itself, the Unifying USB receiver, a USB-C charging cable and a manual.
The MX Keys is available with or without a palm rest. The palm rest is not directly attached to the keyboard and can be purchased separately later if required. You can find them in stores under the name Logitech MX Palm Rest.
