This product does not ship with software. It uses the native USB drivers already present in your operating system.
With this in mind I bought it, unplugged my Logitech wireless keyboard then plugged in the K200. Nothing happened, the keyboard is not recognized. I came to the Logitech support site to download a relevant driver (bare in mind that my Logitech wireless keyboard was working prior to purchasing the K200) but am now told that the Keyboard should work with any previously installed drivers.
Don't say the product will plug in and work immediately when it obviously doesn't.
Will not be buying Logitech products from now on.

Review 2 for Media Keyboard K200
from Brisbane QLD
Expertise: Tech Savvy
Not one for the typists
Date:8 December 2011
I'm writing this review using the Logitech K200 keyboard and I am not enjoying it at all. The keys are much smaller than the Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000 keyboard that I have been using up until now and the action of the keys is too heavy and there is not sufficient tactile response for this to be used for touch typing.
Comparing this keyboard to a Dell y-u0003-del5 multimedia keyboard (which I'm typing this second paragraph on), the K200 also comes off feeling a very poor second best. Although the typing face of the keys is the same size, the shallower slope of the sides of the keys on the Dell keyboard means that there is more distance between the faces by just that couple of millimetres that makes the diference between a good rate of accuracy and a bad one. the Dell keyboard also has a much lighter touch and more tactile response.
Compare the length of the previous two paragraphs and consider that the first one, typed on the Logitech K200 took about twice as long as the second one, on the Dell keyboard.

Hi James, thanks so much for your feedback. We would suggest having a look at our MK550 Wireless Wave Combo which has been designed for not only maximum comfort, but high levels of typing.
It has a wave-shaped key frame to help support varied finger length, cushioned palm rest and more
Here is a video on how we have designed our MK550 http://www.logitech.com/en-au/keyboards/keyboard-mice-combos/devices/7306
