Pros: Extremely fast and reliable.
Cons: Removable cover for the USB plug snapped a little after I got it. Not critical, just irksome. Also, microSD sticks out of the back when in use (or SD out of the side); previous model (microSD only) had a hinged cover which closed over the microSD, protecting it, and making it easier to use as a thumb drive (leaving the card in place while throwing the whole thing in a backpack or pocket).
Other Thoughts: This is my second iogear reader--I got this one because I loved my old one so much, but wanted one that supported USB 3.0 when I got my UHS-1 microSD card. Generally I wind up using the old one more, because of the protected microsd slot and since I'm generally not transferring much at once, but I use this one when I'm transferring really large files, because it's so much faster. Very happy with it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BELKIN F8E208-BLK Black 107 Normal Keys PS/2 Wired Ergonomic ErgoBoard Keyboard
Pros: This has served as a decent workhorse keyboard. The key feel is nice, and the keys are mostly well-placed--standard arrow-key and backspace placement, and even standard home/end/etc. placement. The dual space keys are a nice touch, as the smaller keys' pressure-spreader bars are a little more reliable than those of a full-size space bar's. And I always prefer a wired keyboard to wireless.
Cons: This keyboard has two critically bad key designs, in my book. First, "\" is to the right of the right-hand shift key. Second, the "power" key in the upper right actually did turn off my computer, though it wouldn't turn it on, making it purely a nuisance, but I couldn't disable it through BIOS or software. Also, some of the key labels have faded over time. And a detachable wrist rest would have been nice.READ FULL REVIEW
