First Look: Logitech FabricSkin Keyboard Folio: Great for drippy desks

2:15 /

Expensive but solid, the FabricSkin case also has a splash-resistant keyboard.

Hi. I'm Scott Stein. How intimate do you get with your iPad keyboard case? I mean, that because the Logitech FabricSkin Keyboard Folio suggests that the ability to have a water repellent keyboard case is a good thing. I don't spend a lot of time with beverages around when I'm typing. I like to keep that stuff separate. But if you do happen to be in a situation where you think [unk] coffee shop where you might spill stuff on your iPad. Well, then perhaps that will add to the value proposition here. But the FabricSkin Keyboard Folio is expensive. It's $150. Yeah-- $150 for this admittedly attractive keyboard case. It comes in a variety of bright colors. It is a selection of fabrics on the back and a soft micro fibery-like covering on the keyboard in the front, which again is totally sealed. So in case you happened to spill on, you could just wipe it right up. And we didn't do a lot of fluid testing here. But the advantage is here, go beyond that. You also have a magnetic auto-connection with the side here that snaps into place and also automatically turns on the keyboard. The keyboard feels great, although like recent Logitech keyboards, some of the keys are compressed. If you're a keyboard nerd, or you really pay attention to the stuff, you can see that the capslock and A key combined. The shift key's compress, the tab and Q were combined. It's not a big deal. In fact, when you start typing faster on this after a while, it's fine. It's not as compressed as iPad mini keyboards are. It does feel like a tank and it feels comfortable and heavy. When you're looking at 2.7 pounds with this combine, which is like the way of a MacBook era ultrabook practically. So that's the problem. You're carrying on a laptop weight thing. I still prefer something slimmer, maybe like the Logitech Ultra thin keyboard cover. But if you're looking for one of the most durable all-around protective and liquid repellant keyboard cases, then the FabricSkin keyboard Folio could be worth it if you wanna shot a $150. I'm Scott Stein and that's a quick look at the FabricSkin Keyboard Folio.
