Review of the Logitech K480 Multi-Device Keyboard at PCMag[amazon_link asins=’B00MUTWLW4′ template=’ProductAd’ store=’store-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’cf829050-c646-11e7-914d-450e3cc2e183′]Many of the keyboards we’ve looked at lately have been multi-device models, in that you can pair two or more computing devices—smartphones, tablets, PCs, Macs—to them simultaneously, and then switch back and forth with the touch of a button. Aside from Microsoft’s Universal Foldable Keyboard ($70) [amazon_link asins=’B00UBGU4PY’ template=’CopyOf-PriceLink’ store=’store-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’b7079fb3-c646-11e7-b6e8-edb52833b7d4′], though, none have been small enough to consider carrying around with you — except Logitech’s Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480.[amazon_link asins=’B00MUTWLW4′ template=’CopyOf-PriceLink’ store=’store-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’d7e48ed7-c646-11e7-aad7-d986d0ccf020′]

The K480 is compact and light compared to many multi-device keyboards, including those in Logitech’s line-up. It’s also inexpensive. Logitech lists it for $50, but we found it at several online outlets for around $30. At that price, the only real issues left are — does it, as its more expensive siblings and competitors do, perform well, and is it really portable?

Some, such as EC Technology’s Bluetooth Ultra-Slim Keyboard and the Jorno Keyboard [amazon_link asins=’B06XDB3PY1′ template=’CopyOf-PriceLink’ store=’store-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’85e211d2-c7db-11e7-b25a-334e0791e278′], fold in thirds. Others, including VisionTek’s Waterproof Bluetooth Mini Keyboard and today’s review unit, Microsoft’s Universal Foldable Keyboard [amazon_link asins=’B00UBGU4PY’ template=’CopyOf-PriceLink’ store=’store-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’502fbb58-c7db-11e7-a9f3-d1685f6efb0d’], fold in half. Nearly all are water resistant to some degree, and most of them support all three of the standard tablet and smartphone operating systems: Android, iOS, and Windows.

MICROSOFT UNIVERSAL FOLDABLE KEYBOARD REVIEW at Digital Trends

Akin to its Surface 3 [amazon_link asins=’B072QRCFCG’ template=’CopyOf-PriceLink’ store=’store-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’a909daf6-c7db-11e7-8315-1120cf3ed1c0′] and Surface 3 Pro Type Cover keyboard sibling, Microsoft’s mobile keyboard is light, compact, and easy to use. And like most Microsoft keyboards (and other peripherals), it’s well-designed and well-built, if somewhat expensive. If you shop around, you can find it for around $70. You can pick up the VisionTek model for as little as $20, though, and the iClever BK03 [amazon_link asins=’B00YWLJNPQ’ template=’CopyOf-PriceLink’ store=’store-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’cab64e92-c7db-11e7-8722-a3c87f235499′] Ultra Slim Mini Bluetooth Keyboard, yet another competitor, sells for about $36. At nearly two-thirds of a C-note, do you get what you pay for?
