We test-run two newly launched Logitech Keyboards – Slim Combo and CRAFT to see if they make our list of Christmas-worthy gifts. Keep reading and be your own judge.
Logitech Keyboard — Slim Combo
The Slim Combo fits the 10.5-inch iPad Pro (SGD$219) and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (SGD$249). It provides versatility through its four use modes — Typing, Viewing, FaceTime, and Reading.
As a matter of fact, this article was typed using the Slim Combo keyboard. With the Slim Combo keyboard, you can comfortably answer your emails, write your blog post or craft your next new novel. You will love the offering of word suggestions on the iPad. There is no touchpad, hence making the navigation on the document a bit tricky. Use your finger or Apple Pen to highlight certain areas.
The keyboard offers full-size backlit keys and smart iOS shortcuts for a seamless laptop-like typing experience on the iPad Pro. There are three levels of adjustable backlighting to keep you productive even in low light.
When you don’t need to type, simply detach the keyboard and enjoy the beautiful iPad Pro screen with nothing standing in the way.
Other noteworthy features include the holder for you to slide your Apple Pencil. The case is solid so it provides 360 degrees of protection to your iPad. The back of the case has a stand that allows it to recliner within a 50-degree range so that you will always have the perfect viewing angle.
The Slim Combo connects to iPad Pro through the Smart Connector, meaning you will never have to pair or charge your keyboard again. Just click in and type away without worries about batteries.
Logitech Keyboard — CRAFTed for Games
Moving on to Logitech’s other keyboard, the CRAFT. This is the first keyboard ever with a creative input dial, setting a new standard for computer keyboards.
What we love about it is the elegance and color of the keyboard. Its backlit light allows you to type with ease. Another reason that makes typing on the CRAFT keyboard easy is the dents on the individual keys that fit your fingers comfortably.
However, the main attraction is the crown (or the dial). The crown is very unique and has a nice tactile feel to it. With a turn of the knob, you can adjust the image brightness, contrast, and saturation in Adobe Photoshop, or create and adjust charts in Microsoft Excel.
“It also allows you to have ultimate control over the application that you are using and iT has different turning styles that stop at various segments to allow you to have ultimate control over the applications that you are using.”
Simply turn the dial to move up and down font sizes in document programs like Microsoft Word. The creative input dial gives you the ultimate control and input at your desk for precision, efficiency, and uninterrupted creative flow.
CRAFT keyboard is available at major retailers at SGD$329.00.
