One Volume Commentary?  I go round and round with that one.  For true basics, The Bible Guide is is pretty good.  But it is a bit basic for me usually.  Better is the New Bible Commentary, the Harper, and the Oxford (no longer available).  But actually lately I have been using the notes for the NET Bible.  The problem with one volume commentaries is that they are too short for whenever things get interesting...

Daily Devotional?  I don't use the ones in Logos.  This year I am using the collection of Walther sermons called "God Grant It" in print...

Much of what we prefer is based upon our background and experience. With that said I really like the Faithlife Study Bible in that it provides links to other Logos resources for more depth. I do not always agree with the comments, but then that is why we should have several commentaries to reference.

For devotionals I like Lucado's Grace for the moment for inspiration and Carson's For the Love of God for depth.

Hope this helps.

The Believer's Bible Commentary is pretty good.

The Holman's Illustrated Bible Dictionary is great!

The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia is better!

I've been using this as a devotional reading this year - https://www.logos.com/product/3433/for-the-love-of-god-vol-1-a-daily-companion-for-discovering-the-riches-of-gods-word I like that it involves many genres of Scripture each day. In 2014 I plan to use https://www.logos.com/product/3434/for-the-love-of-god-vol-2-a-daily-companion-for-discovering-the-treasures-of-gods-word

The best one volume commentary is not yet available in Logos nor is it available for individual pre-pub.  Eerdman's Bible Commentary is the best one volume out there that I have seen,

Eerdmans Commentary Collection (13 vols.)

As for devotional, there are so many but one that I really like is 

The 365-Day Devotional Commentary by Larry Richards

I would strongly recommend either the Bible Knowledge Commentary or the ESV Study Bible (or the ESV Study Bible Notes if you already have the ESV Bible). The BKC is actually a two volume commentary, but it is stored in Logos as one. Due to its larger size, It is quite rich for a single commentary. The ESV Study Bible is another great resource and additionally includes a lot of maps, tables, and articles that are very informative.
