The Logitech ultrathin keyboard for iPad - For typing articles on the go

Updated on October 8, 2013

Being a proud owner of the Apple iPad (what iPad owner is not proud to own such an awesome tablet computer) and a person that likes to dabble in the world of online article writing the Logitech ultrathin keyboard was a product I just had to buy. Man I am glad I did buy it, although I have to admit I did have some initial reservations.

I was concerned whether I would be able to type quickly using the Logitech ultrathin keyboard, or whether I was better off simply using the iPad’s own QWERTY keyboard. The net book I previously used for writing articles on the go had small, flat keys and typing was easy with that, so why would I have problems with this keyboard? When the keyboard arrived I soon discovered the keys were actually larger and more pronounced than the keys on my net book so I can type quicker using the iPad and Logitech ultrathin keyboard combo, which is pretty cool. If you are concerned about typing with the keyboard all I can say is don’t be. Trust me, you won’t have any problems with the keys on this and you will be speed typing like a pro in no time at all.

I was also concerned about the build quality of the Logitech ultrathin keyboard. I am heavy handed and I do give my keyboards a bit of abuse and since the Logitech ultrathin keyboard looked so delicate I wandered how long it was going to last. All I can say is that the quality of this keyboard is spot on. It is tough, durable and built to last and I have had no problems with it whatsoever. So, if a heavy handed person like me can use the keyboard without wrecking it I am sure anyone can use the Logitech ultrathin keyboard without breaking it.

Whilst you can use the iPad and Logitech ultrathin keyboard combination whilst it is resting on your lap, I don’t like doing this. I tried using my iPad in this way and I did not like it because it felt unwieldy and like the iPad and keyboard were going to separate, which could end up very costly indeed. Because of this I would recommend using the iPad and the Logitech ultrathin keyboard on a stable surface only.

Compared to other iPad compatible keyboards the Logitech ultrathin keyboard isn’t the cheapest but then you do get what you pay for. Besides, buying budget is false economy and you will end up paying more in the long run as you would only go and buy the Logitech ultrathin keyboard once the cheap one had packed up, so you may as well get the Logitech ultrathin keyboard in the first instance, right?

Overall I have nothing but praise for the Logitech ultrathin keyboard. I like to write balanced reviews and like to include the negatives as well as the positive and I really am struggling to think of any negatives other than the iPad/keyboard combination feels unsteady when used on your lap and the high price.

So, if you are looking for a decent QWERTY keyboard so you can type articles, or simply surf the net, on your tablet computer whilst you are on the move I suggest you take a look at the Logitech ultrathin keyboard. Trust me, you will not be disappointed with this. I should point out that there is also a Logitech ultrathin keyboard for the iPad mini.
