Satechi Slim X3 Reviews
nice backlights! good replacement for original Apple
old Apple keyboard bit the dust and replaced with this Satechi - wonderful backlights! This lets the keyboard be used in any room light conditions.
wireless/ back-lighted/ chiclet together is rare
There aren't many options out there that match the entire set of features this guy offers. This keyboard is a unicorn of sorts. fight me. OK so, no problems and, all in all, pretty happy. After 6 months of use I'm here today writing this quick note, however, because the battery life is not nearly as robust as it once was. It is now running out during use and the keyboard starts having intermittent connection issues until its put on the charge cable. Why don't they make these things with a swappable battery?! I've been gentle with the back-lighting, (never having up full... there is no need actually) and plugging in the recharging USB-c cable after EVERY day's use religiously. I don't expect a lithium-ion battery to last forever, but I do expect longer than 6 months. No one wants to spend 200 bucks on keyboards a year. Other than that I've been completely happy with this keyboard. The 4 quick-swap BlueTooth pairings work great. hit number 4 if you need to bang out a tweet on your iphone. (Using this on my Windows PC BTW. Although the product descriptions steers people away for some reason, there is absolutely no reason to avoid this if you are using a windows machine. all media keys/function keys default and work, etc. ) Here is my one design complaint ...and many backlit chiclets suffer from this: because the key cap edges do not extend down below past the bed they rest in, we have much light coming from around and underneath the keys, thus illuminating everything BUT the letter or number. : ( The light leakage is very bright compared to the key character, which appears dim by comparison. This is at every angle, other than looking straight down at the keyboard.... which no one would ever do. Yeah of course I can see the keys I need but the keyboard would be legit if it controlled the light leakage, IMO. I'm interested ONLY in finding the key I need in no light situations... not the bling. The Logitech version of this set-up I had to return for this guy as the Logitech's motion sensors were not able to function in no-light situations to turn the lighting back on after timing out and there was no way to disable that feature. With the Satechi I can control when I need backlighting. Just remember to turn it off if you will be using it all day unplugged and don't need the backlighting. good keyboard! but it has a tiny battery. Minimal battery ageing will hamstring the device. Really I feel like Satechi owes me a new battery. But it can't be replaced........
Solid keyboard that works like it should. Had another brand for a while that would frequently lose connection. This one doesn't have that problem.
Do not recommend.
Good ideaa but these keyboards are not reliable. They double up on characters. and. put. periods in when you don't type the period key. Just look at this review and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. Junk!
The best slim keyboard for Mac
I needed a Bluetooth keyboard for my home office. I'm a programmer and use the keyboard all day. I have ordered the Logitech MX Keys and immediately returned it because of issues with the back light. This keyboard is cheaper and of much higher quality. It's a great product on par with Apple's own much more expensive Bluetooth keyboard. I'm not one to write reviews, but felt this one was worth the time.
Great Keyboard, Bad CS
This hits all the right buttons, pun intended. It's comfortable to use, feels like a Mac Keyboard, it's wireless and it's backlit. One issue: I'm running OS Monterey, and on start-up, the keyboard can't connect to Bluetooth, so at first I had to plug in the keyboard, which worked fine, but was a bit of a bother. I tried finding out if Satechi had any similar complaints, or maybe even a solution. Their problem is they never pick up their phone or return messages. Zero stars for them, and one star off for the keyboard. Other than that, it's an excellent reliable keyboard. So far I've gone a week without charging it, so battery life is very good.
