I try out a lot of keyboards and have a very strict review of the keyboards that I test. When I first was introduced to the Logitech Keys-To-Go keyboard, I wasn’t sure it would make the cut. I was wrong. This keyboard is amazing and definitely worth considering if you want to take a keyboard with you on-the-go. No, isn’t a full-size keyboard but I will tell you from my experience that once you start using this keyboard, you won’t really miss the size difference.
The keyboard is only 1/4 inch thick and 9 1/2 inches long which makes it the perfect choice if you want to throw it in your backpack or purse. I have even slipped it into a file folder – yes, it’s that thin. It’s also very durable with a covering that’s perfect for on-the-go travel. Its liquid-repellent secure seal protects the keyboard from spills, crumbs, and dirt. You can easily clean the keyboard.
Keys-To-Go connects easily to your iPhone, iPad, AppleTV and Android devices. You can type for up to three months without having to recharge the battery. A battery level indicator light tells you when it’s time to recharge and with the included USB charging cable, charging is easy.
I was impressed with the typing experience since I am a fast typist. It is also very quiet. No clicky keys to disturb people around you. Some days I leave the keyboard paired with my iphone so I can respond to text messages throughout the day without picking up my phone.
The only things that I would say negative about the keyboard that aren’t really deal breakers are that the keyboard can move around on slick surfaces and the keys aren’t backlit for using in low light conditions. Again, not really deal breakers but things you should know.
The keyboard comes with a stand that connects and holds your phone but the angle really doesn’t work plus if you have a case for your phone it won’t be very useful. If you are using this keyboard for your phone, I would recommend you have a phone case with a kickstand.
The cost for the keyboard averages between $40-$70 but I think it’s worth the money. If you are a minimalist and need a mobile solution for a quality keyboard, Keys-to-Go is the one you should purchase.
