Call It the MacBook-Pro Wireless 3-In-1 Keyboard...From Logitech
Canis Majoris, Amazon
21 April 2013
Summary: The name of this keyboard is not the Logitech Bluetooth, or the Logitech Wireless, it is the Logitech Easy-Switch. Usually a keyboard will be called the former two things as that what the keyboard's main 'attribute' is. This keyboard assumes the wireless part but adds this distinctive property: The ability to be paired with 3 devices with only a depress of 1 of 3 quickset keyboard buttons and a couple seconds of waiting. You pick the devices.
Summary: In terms of praise for the Logitech, I can only echo statements already made by others. The keyboard possesses a lovely, sleek design. It is extremely easy to install (how often does two clicks really mean two clicks?) Really it was that easy. The "feel" of the keys is also the right balance of firm yet comfortable. Having only had it a short while, I can't yet comment on the keyboards longevity. Still, it feels very solid. Particularly nice, it is also extremely light.
Summary: This is a really good small keyboard if you want something for typing on an iOS device. I've been using it for the past two weeks with an iPhone and iPad as a main device for taking notes and for writing emails. The keys and action on the keys are good. It's pretty small but the key spacing is full-sized so i was typing at full speed instantly. There's no number pad - that's probably not a surprise to people looking for a small keyboard, but worth noting.
Summary: Very good product, well made and solid. It works as advertised. My dislikes are that I wish it had a better typing angle and that it had the same dimensions of my apple wireless keyboard, so that it would fit into my keyboard tray. I have often wondered why these 3rd part manufacturers don't put all of the best options all on one Cadillac of a keyboard, I.e. Bluetooth, illuminated keys, number pad, color options, rechargeable, etc.
Summary: This is a great BT keyboard. It's technically designed for a Mac, but will work on Windows as well. The only complaint I have is that it seems to have a strangely short range with certain devices.
Summary: As usual, a well-built product from Logitech, one of the most releiable of accessories/inpiut device manufacturers. Even though it's made of plastic, not metal, as the Apple wireless keyboard is, it's still pretty rugged. The ability to switch between devices is awesome and well executed. Push a button, wait a second and BOOM you've gone from controlling your iMac to typing on your iPad and then BOOM your iPhone. Nicely done. Oh, and setup was a breeze.
Summary: If Apple makes it, I own it. And that'll be true until tomorrow morning when I send the week-old Apple bluetooth keyboard back to Amazon--because this Logitech one is WAY better. THE GOOD: -Backlit keyboard--nice for using Apple TV in the dark (backlight turns off within seconds when I take my hands away from the keyboard to save battery and turns back on again when my hands get near the keyboard) -Rechargeable (via USB) -Keys are an exact map of MacBook Air/Pro (Apple's...
Summary: Very nice keyboard. I like how quickly it changes between devices. It's well made and comfortable. The keys feels good and the illumination is awesome. Mine has an abrasion on the face upper left hand side only due to the packaging film. Bummer but oh well.
