Review: Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini
8 April 2013
Summary: At $80 in the US, and a heck of a lot more in Norway, this isn’t a cheap keyboard. It is, however, a very good one. Despite the size, it’s comfortable to type on, and makes the iPad mini a very powerful typing tool. With this and a Bluetooth mouse connected to my jailbroken iPad mini, and using Jump Desktop to remote control my computer, I essentially have a 9-inch laptop with a 10 hour battery life and more processing power than actual Windows tablets (all thanks to...
Excerpt: Manufacturers would prefer to regularly pillage your wallet by selling you a screen for every situation — but it doesn’t have to be that way. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover ($80+) can transform your favorite Apple tablet into a laptop-rivaling email burner — and spare you the hassle of lugging a Smart Cover too, since it doubles as a magnetic cover.
Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Mini: A diamond with flaws
14 December 2012
Summary: 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.
Pros: The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Mini 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.
Cons: The keyboard is a bit cramped and the case only protects the front of your iPad, not the back.
Summary: 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.
Pros: 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.
Cons: The plastic-and-aluminum keyboard isn't really a case, and it doesn't protect the back of the iPad.
Conclusion: The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is another great iPad-product from Logitech. It combines the need for a good keyboard with the need for a slim cover perfectly. With a price around $99 it is not cheap but well worth the money considering what you get.
Pros: Light, High quality, Lasts long on a battery charge, Good keyboard, Lots of iPad shortcuts you can access from keyboard
Cons: Glossy finish loves fingerprints, Does not protect back side of iPad, Keyboard takes some time to get used to
Excerpt: The Good Doubles as tough screen protection when not in use Easy to transport, thin Quiet keys, comfortable layout Handy iOS shortcuts Sturdy, magnetically-locked iPad stand Matches iPad's design aesthetics The Bad Doesn't protect iPad's back May not work with some rear shells Adds significant weight when attached Too heavy to treat as folding lid iPad may tip forward at extreme angles One of the iPad's main weaknesses has always been productivity.
Pros: Doubles as tough screen protection when not in use, Easy to transport, thin, Quiet keys, comfortable layout, Handy iOS shortcuts, Sturdy, magnetically-locked iPad stand, Matches iPad's design aesthetics
Cons: Doesn't protect iPad's back, May not work with some rear shells, Adds significant weight when attached, Too heavy to treat as folding lid, iPad may tip forward at extreme angles
Conclusion: These minor gripes aside though, Logitech’s Ultrathin Keyboard Cover certainly lived up to its promise. For those who are seeking a cover for their shiny new iPad (and you really should), or another typing alternative for their not so new tablet, this is one solution we have no problems recommending. The fact that it adds little thickness and weight to the tablet, while offering a convenient keyboard and stand for consuming media, makes it a winner in our eyes.
Pros: Thin and light, Solidly built, Convenient keyboard works well, Attaches securely and magnetically
