This review is from: Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000
Pros: I have owned this keyboard for about 4 years. It is connected to my primary computer, which my wife also usually uses.
I am a hardware reviewer for 3 PC websites and occasionally write essays as long as 12K-15K words. This keyboard has typed literally hundreds of thousands of words just in my personal work, and that doesn't include forums, FB, email groups, etc.
It has been dropped about four feet to the hard floor dozens of times, dangled by the cord more times, been eaten over literally hundreds of times. I remove crumbs by turning it upside down and pounding the edge of the board on my knees, and occasionally blowing with compressed air at 120 psi.
Finally after three years the board is getting a short in the cord where it enters the keyboard, and has begun acting buggy.
Cons: Absolutely none.
Other Thoughts: Obviously I am very hard on keyboards. I doubt if I have ever had one that lasted more than a couple of years. I think I payed $15 for this board at Walmart on clearance.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech Classic Black 104 Normal Keys USB Standard Keyboard 200
Pros: Good keyboard, good price. Key response is ok. Keys are located where they should be. (not always the case with inexpensive keyboards)
Cons: None really.
Other Thoughts: This keyboard was purchased for a kid's PC. Logitech claims "spill resistant". Yes, it probably is, after the liquid dried from the first soda spill, I was actually able to get the keys back working again without disassembly of the keyboard. Not so the second time, though all keys still work, they just stick. Most keyboards are immediately DEAD when something is spilled on them, so this is definitely a plus.
Of course, NewEgg rules, yadda yadda yadda.....
This review is from: ASUS P7P55D EVO LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I normally don't care for software oc'ing, but TurboV EVO is great, took my i7 870 to 4.2gHz, a 42% oc. Has USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gbit/s, so ready for next year's new stuff. Super stable out of the box.
Cons: None that I found.
Other Thoughts: If you need an LGA 1156 board, look no farther than this one, everything you need is right here. Price is right too.READ FULL REVIEW
