Logitech Craft review: A slick keyboard combo that takes on the Surface Dial

Weight 960g

The Surface Dial, a hockey-puck-sized controller designed for use with Microsoft’s Surface Studio desktop computer, is the palette to the Surface’s pen. It clicks, double clicks and rotates, adding contextual menus and smooth navigation to apps such as Maps and Adobe Photoshop without the need to reach for a mouse. Unfortunately—despite some third-party alternatives—there’s nothing as slick as a Surface Dial available to creative types at home on a Mac.

That’s where the Logitech Craft comes in. Priced at a substantial £179, the Logitech Craft is a premium keyboard armed with a “crown,” that allows for the same clicks, double clicks and twists that make the Surface Dial so compelling, without the need to splash out on a Surface Desktop to go with it. While there are some odd limitations to the crown’s functionality, at least at launch, it’s a compelling companion to the keyboard and mouse.

It helps that the Craft is beautifully made. The main body is constructed from a sturdy matte grey plastic, while a heavy aluminium bar at the top adds weight, a comfortable tilt (although it’s sadly not adjustable), and the crown itself, which sits just above the escape key to the left of the keyboard. The Craft is a heavy thing with solid rubber feet that, once placed down on a desk, reassuringly stays put.

By Darrell Etherington

Logitech has a long history of making keyboard accessories for iPad, and it has a new product out in time for the release of the latest iPad Pro 10.5 and 12.9 updates. The Slim Combo, which is available for either size device, includes a back cover case with an integrated Apple Pencil sleeve, and a keyboard that uses the iPad’s Smart Connector.

Logitech Debuts Universal Folio Keyboard Case for iPad, Android Tablets; Also Works With Windows 10 Models

By Radu Iorga

Logitech just debuted a badass new Folio Keyboard accessory for 9-10 inch tablets, compatible with Android models, iPads and Windows 10 slates. It’s supposed to offer laptop-like functionality, whenever and wherever you use the tablet. There’s a 4 point grip here that holds the device securely in place.

The advantage is that we get well spaced keys, that stretch in edge to edge fashion, so there’s no cramping. Key travel of 2 mm offers great depth for comfortable typing. There’s also a set of function and shortcut keys for iOS, Android and Windows and we get a two year battery life. There’s a “coin battery” system here and a smart power management system, which adjusts the power usage in smart fashion.

 

The product is up for order over at Logitech for $59.99 a pop. Logitech promises zero learning curve in order to use the keyboard and a sturdy plastic shell protects the slate from daily damage (and even some spills). Keep in mind there’s no camera hole here, so you’ll have to rely on the tablet for typing and work, but no camera action. Supported models include iPad Air 2, Air 1, iPad 2, 3 and 4, Galaxy Tab A and S models or the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch and HDX to name a few.

Logitech Launches Rugged Keyboard Case for iPad

By Radu Iorga

With every iPad launch there also has to be a launch of an accessory, right? Logitech moved swiftly, unveiling a new rugged keyboard case for the iPad, which you can check out below.

Dubbed “a rugged combo” this is an education oriented accessory, meant to protect the Apple slate from drops and knocks. This case can defend the iPad against drops from as high as six feet and the education focused part means that this device is meant for students, who go on field trips. Apple worked with Logitech on this product, in order to make sure it gets a secure keyboard connection and tough case.

The keyboard is supposed to offer “laptop-like typing” and it connects to the tablet via Logitech’s proprietary connector. Apple’s Education Store will be selling this product later this week. Logitech has previously created cases and keyboards for all iPad generations and they’ve been a longstanding partner for Apple. We don’t have a price for the new rugged case, but I imagine it’s below $100.

Last year I told You All About The Logitech K480 That I Bought…Yep, You Could Get One for Less Than I Paid

So for anyone who has read any of my posts about the K480, or why I choose it over the K380 then you are probably aware that I bought one last year from the very same place that has them dirt cheap again.

Now almost a year later, Newegg still has these keyboards in there refurbished items section. Don’t panic, mine was a “refurbished” model, meaning it was repackaged and brand new.

So if you really want a great keyboard for the incredibly low price of $16.99 then click this link!

If you are looking at a Bluetooth keyboard for a 10 inch or smaller tablet, or perhaps just to use with your PC or smartphone, then you might just be an idiot if you don’t go visit the site I linked above, (okay, this one works also).
