Type Case

 

If you need a keyboard case for your iPad Air, this is the one you want.

Thin, lightweight form factor combined with responsive keys. Adds virtually no extra weight to your iPad. Handy, iPad-specific action keys, including one for screenshots

Connecting your iPad to the back hinge takes some practice

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad Air reviewed: A great way to keyboard your iPad

 

Logitech's great iPad accessory hasn't changed all that much, and it lacks a few premium features, but it still has one of the best-feeling keyboards around.

The ; has an excellent, uncompromising keyboard and solid build quality, and it packs flat.

Lacks advanced case features like automatic Bluetooth pairing or multiple viewing angles; doesn't protect back of your iPad.

The Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad Air isn't quite as ultrathin-feeling as the original iPad cover, but it's still an excellent -- if feature-minimal -- Bluetooth keyboard accessory.

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Mini: A diamond with flaws

 

Logitech's sleek keyboard for the iPad Mini comparatively very good, but the cramped typing experience isn't for everyone.

The ; is slim, lightweight, and matches up well with the iPad Mini, serving as a screen protector. While small, the keyboard itself has arguably the best layout and design of any iPad Mini keyboard/case.

The keyboard is a bit cramped and the case only protects the front of your iPad, not the back.

The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Mini is arguably the best keyboard/case option available for the iPad Mini, but it still doesn't offer a great typing experience.

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover review

 

No one technically needs a keyboard for an iPad. You can type on the screen. But still, it's inefficient. It's not tactile. And that keyboard eats up so much of the iPad's screen space. A dedicated keyboard can help for long-term iPad writing projects.

The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover has a slim design, fits perfectly onto the iPad 2 and third-generation iPad via magnets, and works extremely well as a keyboard.

The plastic-and-aluminum keyboard isn't really a case, and it doesn't protect the back of the iPad.

Logitech's Ultrathin Keyboard Cover might be the best keyboard accessory ever made for the iPad, if you're looking for a highly portable and functional keyboard that travels light; just make sure you carry a separate protective case.

When you have a tablet as thin and light as the iPad Air, the last thing you want is to weigh it down with heavy accessories. The attractive $99 Logitech Ultrathin Bluetooth keyboard case weighs less than a pound and provides an above-average typing...

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover

 

The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is just as light and sleek--and functional--as the iPad itself.

While it doesn't protect the back of your iPad, the $99 Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is the sleekest keyboard case on the market. Even better, it doesn't sacrifice usability for style. We wish there were a dedicated row of iPad keys, but it's...

Logitech Ultrathin mini Keyboard Cover Review

 

When it comes to tablet computing, users have five realistic options nowadays: 1) the iPad, 2) an Android tablet specifically for media playback, 3) a Windows RT tablet for web browsing and media playback, 4) a [...]

Surprisingly good type experience for such a small keyboard ; Spacious enough for everyday typing ; Excellent cover for the iPad mini

Key placement is difficult to adjust to in too many places ; No indicator for low-power, or else seriously flawed instant-on feature ; After a slight beating, ghost keypresses are fairly consistent

Many iPad owners find the onscreen keyboard suitable for their usage, but when it comes to writing long emails or documents, a Bluetooth keyboard is welcome. While you can buy and use any standard Bluetooth keyboard, when traveling with your iPad, not...

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover Review

 

Logitech announced their new 'ultrathin' keyboard case for the iPad back in April, an updated, sexier version of their previously-clunky keyboard case. The...

Well laid-out keyboard ; Very easy to type, good key response ; Use your iPad vertically or horizontally ; Great Build quality ; Great battery life ; Thin, Slim and easy to hold ; It’s also a case ; Uses Bluetooth instead of dock connector

Magents could be stronger ; Letters on keys might not last long ; Somewhat pricey at launch

The high price tag makes you want more from the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard, but I’d imagine if anyone who buys one of these is going to be very happy with it.

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover Review

 

Since the release of the iPad, I've been searching for a way to completely rid my daily life from laptop use, instead replacing it with a tablet and some sort of physical keyboard. Hardware additions like [...]

Smart magnetic design for the cover flap and as a stand ; Very solid typing experience with low-profile rubber yet clicky keys ; Long battery life that’s rechargeable, and Bluetooth makes it work for all devices

Some of the secondary function keys are useless ; A backlight would have been nice to have
