Product Review: Logitech Type Plus Protective Case with Keyboard

Turn your tablet into a mini laptop with this case/stand/keyboard combo.

What Is it: The Logitech Type Plus Protective Case for the iPad Air 2.


  • Integrated Bluetooth keyboard wirelessly connects to your iPad
  • Dual-view stand lets you hold your iPad upright for typing or flat (with keyboard hidden)
  • Liquid-repellant case
  • Very thin and light (0.7 x 7.2 x 10.2 inches; 15 ounces)
  • Automatic wake/sleep feature


  • Uses a magnet to stay upright and can be knocked down fairly easily when the iPad is standing up in it.

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Perfect for working on the plane or hotel desk on your iPad Air 2.
  • Value: 6/10. On the pricey side for a protective case, but this includes a keyboard and stand as well.
  • Portability: 10/10. Very lightweight and thin.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. Comes in stylish colors.

Final Verdict: If you work (or watch movies/send personal e-mails) a lot from your iPad Air 2, this case does everything you need.
