This review is from: Logitech K400 (920-003070) Black USB RF Wireless Standard Keyboard
Pros: Perfect size for my intended use (HTPC)
Cons: Will take a little bit of effort to get used to the funky right shift key size. A built-in scroll wheel would have been nice, but I knew it didn't have it going in.
Other Thoughts: I took my time researching wireless keyboards, and this one is definitely a winner. Plug & play, no need for the included extender (the KB in my lap is about 5 or 6 feet away from the PC). Plugged into the front USB 2.0 port of my newly-built HTPC, zero problems! Since the mobo has a wake-on-lan feature, I can use the keyboard to turn the thing on! On/Off switch is an excellent feature, looking forward to seeing just how long the batteries will last. Stop looking, go ahead and get this one.READ FULL REVIEW
Military Class (lets RUMBLE!!)
Cons: SATA / USB3 header orientation
Did not provide any winning Powerball numbers
Other Thoughts: Warren is correct. The USB3/SATA ports are 'sideways' and make plugging the cables in a bit of a pain, at least in a HTPC case. Not impossible for my skinny fingers, but be aware. I would give 4.5 stars if I could, but didn't want to penalize this board a full egg because of this. I purchased this board for my first HTPC and have been very pleased with the results! For those of you that are going this route, make sure to use the included CD to install chipset AND vga drivers! I pulled my hair out for an entire day trying to figure out why I couldn't get sound through a brand-new HDMI cable. Another fantastic feature is the ability of my wireless keyboard to power it up with a Wake On LAN via USB device. I'm not talking about wake from suspend/sleep/whatever. I'm talking about Power Up when it's OFF. Such a simple thing, but it works like a champ. Here's the rest of the equipment:

This review is from: Kingston 32GB microSDHC Flash Card Model SDC4/32GB
Pros: Compatible with Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2
Stable & Reliable
Cons: Replacement didn't come with the winning Powerball numbers pre-loaded.
Seriously though, there aren't any cons so far...
Other Thoughts: After contacting Jewel from Kingston, she took BOTH my old cards back (even sent me a free Fedex shipping label) and sent 2 brand new 32GB cards. I'm VERY happy! Both cards are in an LG F6 phone, and have had zero issues since installation. Jewel, thank you for your superior customer service, tell your boss you deserve a raise!READ FULL REVIEW
