With Apple neglecting to update the iPad Air 2 during its fall 2015 event, accessories for the device will continue to be relevant and in-demand for the foreseeable future. We went hands-on with Logitech's new Blok case lineup for the iPad Air 2, which debuted in July under its new Logi brand name.

The simplest of the three cases, the Logi Blok Protective Shell, fits around the back of the iPad and changes the shape of the tablet, adding sharp corners and a blocky feel. The corners are designed to absorb shock better should the iPad be dropped, and we thought the Blok offered a lot of protection while leaving ports accessible and buttons easy to press.


The Blok Protective Case is a lot like the Shell, but it adds a built-in flap that serves as a stand. We were impressed with the stand because it was rigid and stable, but we did find the flap hard to manage when it wasn't in use as a stand.

The third case, the Blok Protective Keyboard Case, combines the shell and stand from the two previous cases with a detachable keyboard. Because the keyboard attaches to the rest of the case via magnets, it's highly versatile and can be used in several ways. The keyboard itself is smaller than a standard keyboard though still pleasant to type on, but we weren't a fan of its non-rechargeable batteries.

All three of the Logi Blok cases come in multiple colors and can be purchased from the Logitech website for the iPad Air 2, the iPad mini 2, and the iPad mini 3. The Blok Protective Shell is priced at $39.99, the Blok Protective Case is priced at $69.99, and the Blok Protective Keyboard Case is priced at $129.99.

Who would pay 130$ for an ugly looking case which has a non rechargeable keyboard? This sounds like a joke to me...

Logitech does definitely have prettier cases for less $$
