    Not getting the backlit keyboards. I'm not sitting in a dark room watching videos. I allways have some backlighting on, as it doesn't tire my eyes as much.
    Also, I hate those integrated batteries and rather use AA oor AAA rechargebles, so I'd opt for the TK820, which has the bigger touchpad aswell.

    To be fair, the opening paragraph isn't clear and could easily be read like the placement of the trackpad - as opposed to the addition of a backlight and a slightly modified power source* - is the "new" thing.

    * Presumably a handful of LEDs, a built in rechargeable battery and matching charger explain why it's twice the price of the K400 </sark>

    I've been using the K400 with my HTPC for a few years now and I love it. Rechargeable battery is pointless as 2xAAs last forever (I cant actually remember replacing mine in years), and I'm not interested in backlit keys. The one thing that the K400 is missing is play/pause/skip media keys. It has volume keys but not play/pause/skip. No idea why they thought that was a good idea!

    The backlit keys and a larger right-shift button are nice. I have the K400, and the shift button sometimes bothers me. If I was typing on the keyboard more, I might consider upgrading. However, since most of my typing is just single finger hunt&peck from my bed, I see no reason to upgrade. Even if my keyboard broke, I don't see myself paying over twice as much for the K830. The K400 works great!
