This review is from: Logitech K350 Black USB 2.4 GHz Wireless Ergonomic Keyboard
-Not too expensive
-"Extra" function keys can be useful
Cons: -Poor signal quality
-Low durability/longevity (see other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: I had an old Microsoft Comfort Keyboard 3000 that i had used for something like 5 years. It didn't stop working but the receiver was huge and eventually i left it at home in mid August when going off to school and decided to replace it instead of waiting to get it. The K350 was fairly priced and had similar ergonomics to the 3000, along with being readily available) so i picked it up. It worked flawlessly until around a moth ago. For the most part it would infrequently not respond then suddenly spit out all the characters that had been typed while it was frozen. Last week it started to infrequently just not work and today it finally died.
That's ~6 months from shelf to trash can, after my previous mid-range keyboard lasted around 5 years and was, in comparison, abused. I went with a Corsair K90 to replace it. Hopefully that'll last me forever.
Pros: Blazing fast
Fits well in a full tower
Easy to overclock
Not as hot as I thought it would be
Price went down right before i bought it (heh)
Cons: Still runs a little hotter than i'd like it to
Stock cooler is average at best
Fan is effectively a vaccuum at anything about 75%. At least I can use it as an excuse to ignore people
Other Thoughts: I was really pleasantly surprised when i installed this card into my new rig. Slid right in, no driver or installation problems. It also runs a lot cooler than i expected it to, 70-72c at load with stock clocks in my HAF 932, which leads to my next point. This card overclocks like a dream, at least for me. Easily running at speeds that pass those of the 480 without coming anywhere near what i would consider "dangerous" (e.g. 85-90c), even under load while overclocked (730/1460/1850 fan at 80%). Needless to say, this card provides an excellent value, and with EVGA's lifetime warrantee (which, i checked, does extend even to self-overclocked cards, as long as they weren't overclocked "recklessly" as i believe i saw it stated) there isn't much to worry about, no matter what this card is put through.READ FULL REVIEW
