Logitech's first Ultrathin keyboard was praised by critics for offering a slim profile and enjoyable typing experience. The latest variant for the iPad Air continues the same tried and true formula, keeping critics happy with features like a keyboard that CNET calls "excellent" and "uncompromising," and iMore says it's "one of the best" they've ever used. You can chalk some of that up to the layout, with Wired noting that "the key size and spacing feels close to what you'd find on the Macbook Air." But despite its thin build, the Ultrathin Keyboard still has a bit of heft to it, with PC Mag noting that it's "slightly heavier but the added weight isn't that noticeable."

The Ultrathin line continues to be a top choice for iPad users seeking a more traditional typing experience over tapping away on glass -- and the Air variant is no different with its comfortable layout, solid tactility and svelte profile.

The Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad Air isn't quite as ultrathin-feeling as the original iPad cover, but it's still an excellent -- if feature-minimal -- Bluetooth keyboard accessory.
