Review: Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover

I’ve reviewed 2 Logitech iPad Keyboard in the past, the Logitech Tablet Keyboard for iPad and Logitech Keyboard Case by ZAGG for iPad 2. When I saw the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover, it sort of reminded me of the Logitech Keyboard Case by ZAGG, except better.

The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover attaches itself to the iPad using magnet like the iPad Smart Cover. Like the Keyboard Case by ZAGG, the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover acts as a iPad case when not in use. When you open it, the magnets turns on your iPad automatically. The built in stand lets you view your iPad at a comfortable angle. You can position your iPad in either landscape or portrait mode.

By the way, although the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover attaches itself to the iPad using the side magnet, I advise you not to hold on to just the iPad and let the keyboard dangle in the air. The magnet is strong enough to just hold the keyboard in place but not strong enough to support the full weight of the keyboard. And honestly speaking, you shouldn’t be doing that anyway.

The Keyboard communicate with the iPad via Bluetooth. Pairing is easy and straight forward. According to Logitech, the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover has a 6 months battery life in one full charge. Pretty impressive. You can easily recharge the keyboard’s built in battery using a MicroUSB charger. The Ultrathin Keyboard Cover weighs just 327g and is 241.2 x 189.85 x 9.96 mm.

Typing on the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is pretty ok. Great for those who are looking at using iPad to replace your laptop. Like all Logitech iPad keyboard, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover has several shortcut buttons specially for iPad. The shortcut buttons are very convenient and help speed up several tasks. But do note that the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is not a full sized keyboard. Those with bigger hands might want to try out the size first before deciding to buying.

If you are looking for a compact keyboard for your iPad, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is worth considering. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is now retailing at S$139.
