Designed for the creative, the Craft is the latest, and very probably the biggest, wireless keyboard from Logitech. It is very nice to use and exceptionally quiet compared to other similar models.
We appreciate the attention that has been paid to the details. For example, the keys of the Craft are backlit but only light up when your hands are near the keyboard.
