The days of being attached to your device in order to listen to your music or videos are pretty much over. The ease and simplicity that Bluetooth headphones provide is just too much to pass up.

Logitech K480 with Devices
Have to write a lot of text on a mobile phone or tablet? Maybe you use both of them and also have a PC that you use in a media center that needs a wireless keyboard? If so, Logitech offers a couple of keyboards that can be used between multiple devices. Sure, you can use a single device Bluetooth keyboard between multiple devices but you have to unpair and pair them whenever you want to switch.

Logitech K811 Sync ButtonsFor anyone familiar with connecting a Bluetooth peripheral to a computer, tablet or smartphone, you must pair the two devices with one another. This is typically a process that involves putting both into a discovery mode and then selecting the peripheral off the main device Bluetooth setup menu. This process works great when you have a single computer, tablet or smartphone that you want to pair peripherals with. Many people now have multiple Bluetooth capable devices. Trying to use a single peripheral with each of these devices can be a pain because it requires unpairing the device from one before it can be used with another. Thankfully, Logitech has come out with their Bluetooth Easy-Switch Keyboard K811 that allows you to use a single keyboard with multiple devices. But just how well does this work? Continue reading
