Logitech Craft keyboard's Crown speeds your strokes

The Crown dial adds another option in addition to mouse and keyboard shortcuts for applications like Photoshop.

I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

Dial it in

The Craft keyboard incorporates a dial that can be used for context-sensitive operations, such as increasing brush size in Photoshop, cycling through styles in Word and controlling audio volume for your system.

Coordinated design

The Craft is part of Logitech's MX series of accessories, which are designed to coordinate with each other.

Touch typing

While it doesn't have a terrific amount of travel, the Craft is comfortable for long typing sessions.

Backlight

Among other things, the keyboard has a proximity sensor which turns the backlight on when your hand comes within a few inches, and adjusts the intensity based on the ambient light.

Shallow

The keys have about as much travel as a decent laptop keyboard.

Power

There's a switch to turn the keyboard on and initiate pairing, and a USB-C port for charging the built-in battery.

Make a dent

As on many of Logitech's other keyboards, the keycaps have indentations to help you hit them in the correct spot and prevent you from hitting their neighbors.

Multidevice

Like Logitech's other multidevice keyboards, the Craft has labels for both Windows and Mac on the relevant keys.

Bottom

Rubber feet keep it from sliding. You can't adjust the tilt angle, though.

For righties

Because of the placement of the Crown dial, you have to operate it with your left hand, so it assumes your dominant hand -- the one navigating -- is on the right.
