Logitech Fold-Up Keyboard for iPad

 

The Logitech Fold-Up Keyboard for iPad has a clever design, but it's too expensive and too heavy.

Clever mechanism. Takes up little additional space.

Expensive. Heavy. Awkward to open and close. Keys are slippery and don't offer enough response when you type.

Logitech diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks review: Logitech diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks

 

Logitech diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks

Elegant finish; programmable shortcut keys; comfortable typing experience; easy plug-and-play design.

Expensive; lacks illuminated keys and integrated USB ports; no control over wrist angle.

The Logitech diNovo for Notebooks looks sexy and is comfortable for typing, but it's a pricey upgrade for a keyboard that lacks integrated USB ports and backlit keys.

Logitech Illuminated Keyboard review: Logitech Illuminated Keyboard

 

Logitech Illuminated Keyboard

Comfortable; minimalist design; convenient backlit keys; strong tactile feedback; easy to install.

Lacks wireless support; no USB ports; fixed wrist pad attracts fingerprints.

The keys on the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard are comfortable to use and emit a satisfying click, but it lacks convenient features we've come to expect from a PC keyboard. Nevertheless, we think this Logitech is a practical, affordable, and convenient...

Logitech Cordless Keyboard (Wii) review: Logitech Cordless Keyboard (Wii)

 

Logitech Cordless Keyboard (Wii)

Nintendo-certified wireless keyboard for Wii; plug-and-play setup; attractive, comfortable keyboard in the tradition of Logitech's PC models; also works with Windows PCs and Macs.

Lack of wrist rest may become uncomfortable over long typing sessions; you'll still need to keep the Wiimote handy for navigating onscreen menus; many other wireless keyboards work just as well on the Wii.

The Logitech Cordless Keyboard for Wii is a capable and comfortable keyboard for anyone who's doing a lot of text entry on the Nintendo game console, but it's not a must-have accessory.

Logitech Cordless MediaBoard for PlayStation 3 review

 

If you own a Sony PlayStation 3 and have done any Web browsing or text messaging, you're probably pretty tired of using the PS3's cumbersome text-entry system. Perhaps you take a moment a key in the words "PS3 Bluetooth keyboard" into the Google search...

Sony-certified and fully compatible with the Sony PlayStation 3, the Logitech Cordless MediaBoard for PlayStation 3 has a slim profile, is easy to set up, and has a built-in mousepad, obviating the need to connect a mouse to your PS3. This keyboard...

It's somewhat pricey, and there are no PS3-centric buttons/shortcuts available on the keyboard.

The Logitech Cordless MediaBoard for PlayStation 3 is currently one of the only Sony-certified--and totally compatible--cordless keyboards for the PS3, but it's really not a true PS3 keyboard.

I think that the Logitech Illuminated keyboard is an excellent, comfortable, keyboard. The PerfectStroke Key System has good mechanical properties and is comfortable to use in general. I would have personally preferred a shorter key travel (I type...

Logitech Illuminated Keyboard Review: Light Up the Night

 

Logitech's Illuminated Keyboard has, uh, Illuminated keys. But its most obvious feature is not its only one. In fact, the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard is a fabulous niche product, although casual typists may not appreciate all of its strengths.

A fantastic keyboard that makes working in the dark easy. It's also brilliant for those that frequently have long typing marathons.
