RIM's new BlackBerry Mini Keyboard quickly converts a PlayBook tablet into a virtual laptop while adding protection and a lot of style.
Logitech's unique Fold-Up Keyboard for iPad 2 seems perfect for an executive desk, turning an iPad into a miniworkstation with eye-opening elegance. It's a shame the keyboard doesn't work as magnificently.
The Logitech Keyboard Case for the iPad 2 does exactly what it promises, offering a highly portable Bluetooth keyboard for use with an iPad; however, it's a better keyboard than it is a case.
The Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800 is a worthwhile refresh with updates that include a Unifying receiver for consolidated USB port access, rechargeable AA NiMH batteries, and Logitech's comfortable PerfectStroke key design. If you do your typing in the dark, the adjustable backlit Wireless K800 won't disappoint.
Fans of Apple's legendary Extended II keyboard will love the Matias Tactile Pro 3.0's sculpted keys and satisfying click. Its sturdy build and laser-etched keys also ensure a long lifespan. If you get past the $150 price, the Matias Tactile Pro 3.0 makes a solid replacement for the stock Apple keyboard.
The Das Keyboard Model S Ultimate Silent is aesthetically minimal and truly designed for typing purists and keyboard snobs who have no need for key labels. If the lack of printed letters isn't enough, the $135 price tag will deter casual users who can find a cheaper input device with extra features elsewhere.
Apple's keyboard dock for the iPad offers a functional and elegant solution for anyone who finds the touch-screen keyboard too limiting, but it does not transform the iPad into a proper computer.
The Logitech Wireless Keyboard K350 stands out for its comfortable ergonomic touches, an easy learning curve, affordable price, and unique Unifying connection. We have minor issues with the placement of the media controls, but heavy typists will appreciate what Logitech has to offer.
The Logitech diNovo for Notebooks looks sexy and is comfortable for typing, but it's a pricey upgrade for a keyboard that lacks integrated USB ports and backlit keys.
Although you don't get a price break by buying the package instead of the individual devices, we still consider this one of the best mouse and keyboard packages on the market. It combines an even better version of our favorite mouse and an equally adept keyboard at a very reasonable price.
The keys on the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard are comfortable to use and emit a satisfying click, but it lacks convenient features we've come to expect from a PC keyboard. Nevertheless, we think this Logitech is a practical, affordable, and convenient keyboard that manages to look sexy at the same time.
Microsoft's Wireless Media Desktop 1000 will provide you with a perfectly capable wireless mouse and keyboard for a more reasonable price than its competition. We just wish Microsoft would give more thought to the design and overall feel of its hardware.
Typing purists, gamers, and computing old schoolers will love the Das Professional Keyboard and its satisfying mechanical switch design. Most casual users, however, will balk at the $125 price for such an otherwise spare input device.
The Adesso Tru-Form Pro is a decent introduction to split keyboards, but there are more comfortable models that cost less.
It's not as fancy as any of the higher-end multimedia input devices from Logitech or Microsoft, but we found the straightforward features of Trust's DS-3250 Optical Wireless Multimedia worthwhile and easy to use. And at less than $70, its price is right, too.
The Alto notebook stand is a creative attempt to make using a laptop at a desk more comfortable, but due to a few design issues we can't recommend it for everybody.
The Logitech Cordless MediaBoard for PlayStation 3 is currently one of the only Sony-certified--and totally compatible--cordless keyboards for the PS3, but it's really not a true PS3 keyboard.
Razer brings all the polish to its Tarantula gaming keyboard that it has to mice over the years. The Tarantula is a little more expensive than other keyboards geared toward gamers, but its build quality, customization options, and responsiveness are definitely worth it.
