Top Customer Reviews
The keyboard is fairly compact at about 12 inches long, five inches wide, and an inch or so high; however, it's not compact enough to carry around conveniently. I like the idea of an attachable keyboard accessory like Microsoft did with the Surface keyboard - something that's portable and melds nicely into a tablet's design. But the intent of Logitech's keyboard appears to be as a tool in a classroom setting - a convenient means of connecting a table directly to a keyboard without worrying about batteries or interference from multiple Bluetooth connections. For a classroom utilizing tablets with a Lightning interface, this would be an excellent tool. They keyboard rests an inch and a quarter off the desk and allows for fast, fairly quiet, responsive typing. I type at about 60 words a minute and found it easy to work with.
Interestingly enough, I found this keyboard also worked with my iPhone 5. Since it had the same connector, I thought I'd give it a shot. It worked when typing e-mails, notes, or for blogging on the web. Of course it's a bit inconvenient with such a small screen, but it'll work in a pinch in the event the iPhone's all that's available and there's typing to be done.
All-in-all, this keyboard will be great in a classroom setting due to its ease of use and allowing a user to simply plug in and type. If you're on-the-go and utilize a blackpack/briefcase/large purse, this should also work fine. By itself, it's a little inconvenient due to size, as there's no case for storage or transport.
Finally someone came up with a non-Bluetooth keyboard solution for the iPad (and iPhone IMHO) that use the Lightning connector. The Logitech wired keyboard does this trick and does it very well. It is intended for school kids in a classroom environment. That's all well and good but what about the rest of us. Well, it's great for us too! I can just plug it in and it just works. No pairing, no extra weight of built in batteries, no hassle. It types well, though I'm no touch-typist. It isn't very heavy which is good for travel but is compensated by some rubber legs for stability on the desk. I do wish there were fold out adjusters on the back end, though. Still this is a very nice keyboard, doesn't seem to drain the iPad battery much at all. To that end it doesn't use LEDs to mark the locking keys.
There are a bunch of special function keys like media controls and app switching. Also the missing from Apple virtual keyboards but present here are arrow/directional keys, Yay!. The only other thing I find missing is a nice soft bag to contain the keyboard for travel. I did test the keyboard on my iPhone 5 and it worked like a charm. Maybe there's a feature I missed but I was typing and switching apps and playing music, so I'm not an official tech source but for general purpose it worked on my iPhone just fine. This is a great and different keyboard, I love it!
This keyboard wasn't designed for those who have had their fill of intractable bluetooth devices, but was created for classrooms so that teachers wouldn't have to walk kids through pairing or force those who are not technologically savvy to manage the configuration. It works just as well for anyone who wants to avoid bluetooth, but it is important to know the demographic this was aimed at when assessing its strong points. Beyond the wired connection, which worked flawlessly in my experience, there is also durability. It's spill-resistant which is probably not a bad idea for an item marketed toward kids and even clumsy adults. I once spilled a diet Coke all over a keyboard so I can appreciate the value of this point. I also appreciate the size of the keyboard because, as a touch typist, tiny keyboards always contribute to mistakes as I will lose positioning and mistype.
I couldn't really see any problems with this keyboard aside from the slightly high price. It isn't the cheapest keyboard around, but it does feel like it's built to last and has the added benefit of not needing a battery. Given that I don't mind having wires and hate carrying around spare batteries, I'm very pleased to have this keyboard.
It's nice that you don't have to fumble with Bluetooth, which I find unreliable (like I find all wireless technologies).
I wondered why the bottom of the keyboard is neon green (!). But when I saw that it is mean primarily for classrooms, that was explained.
My top favorite sort-of-portable keyboard is on the Alphasmart Neo. That in fact is a fantastic keyboard.
So I guess we can conclude that when companies build for young students, they make better keyboards. I think it is because they are then not afraid to make the device a bit thicker than is the vogue these days. Like the fashion industry, they are endangering the functions of the models by squeezing them thinner and thinner.
The Logitech is *almost exactly* the size of Apple's portable Bluetooth keyboard. The keys are the same size. It is a few milimeters wider and thicker. And it is 25 grams lighter. In fact it weighs only 300 grams (10.6oz), like the iPad Mini. Nice. And while the Apple keyboard is a good keyboard (and looks great), this one has a deeper travel, which I like.
This means they had the space to make the keys more "clicky", meaning they give a slight sound (it's pretty quiet though), and you can *feel* when the key activates. This is, for many typists, very important for comfortable and speedy typing, and it's the first portable keyboard I've had that I could say this about. (That's the main reason I've bought so many!)
Of course it's not as "clicky" as the top-shelf keyboards like the DAS Keyboard or the Matias Tactile Pro, but it's much better than other portables I've tried.Read more ›

It's the same thickness all the way across the whole thing which makes it pretty uncomfortable to type. Keyboards should be angled down towards the space bar. It's awkward.Published 6 months ago by Happy Go Lucky
