Logitech 920-000914 Black 106 Normal Keys USB Wired Ultra-thin Illuminated Keyboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Excellent but a few oddities 04/20/2012

This review is from: Logitech 920-000914 Black 106 Normal Keys USB Wired Ultra-thin Illuminated Keyboard

Pros: Flat keys, backlit keys, three levels of illumination (or off completely). I type very fast on this keyboard and it isn't a struggle to type on like my last Dell keyboard - which hurt after a few minutes.

The design is extremely thin and the rubberized wrist wrest is fairly comfortable and I feel a nice addition to the rest of the keyboard.

Cons: There are a few oddities that deserve my four-egg review.

First, the "F" keys don't light up. They have icons on them that light up, the actual letters "F1", "F2", etc *do not* light up. This also includes the Print Screen and Pause/Break buttons. Again, the icons on them light up, but not the actual letters or words that say what they are. Not sure what Logitech was thinking there.

Other Thoughts: This is a great keyboard and I would recommend it to people. I would give it 5 stars if it weren't for the function keys that don't light up.

SAMSUNG RF Series RF511-S02 Notebook Intel Core i7 2630QM (2.00GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M w/ NVIDIA Optimus 15.6

Pros: Extremely fast. Google Earth starts up completely in less than 3 seconds. I am not a gamer but I just wanted a fast computer than get do some serious multitasking. I have no patience when it comes to computers and this computer solves my problem very easily.

Cons: I am listing a lengthy cons section here, but notice I still give the RF511 four eggs. It's great, but:

It comes with bloatware. However, it is much better than most HP's that come with gigs and gigs of bloatware. This had some WildTanget games I uninstalled. It came with Norton and I took that off. None of the bloatware was obtrusive, though.

"Fast Start" is okay. It's more like 7 seconds by the time the laptop reconnects to wireless.

You have to wait about 10 minutes in the beginning while Samsung installs a bunch of their own software that tries to make the experience better. Unfortunately I have found the WiFi manager causes more problems than it solves so I simply deleted it. When I would wake the computer from sleep the WiFi had issues until I deleted their WiFi manager.

There is an interesting Intel TurboBoost program that tries to install but just sits there every time I start up my computer. Read the "other thoughts" section to see details.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I did something to trigger it. If you find yourself with either the wireless not reconnecting after returning from sleep, delete the wifimanager.exe file from:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Samsung\Easy Display Manager\

This is very frustrating because it does not list itself in the Startup folder nor in the msconfig startup list so you have to just delete it. Toss it in the recycle bin, reboot, make sure you don't get any errors next time, and then delete it for good.


It looks like Intel/Samsung stores some TurboBoost setup file in:

C:\Windows\MSetup

If you have an installation window at startup that just sits there forever and never does anything nor tells you what it is, it's called gadget.exe and/or TurboBoostInst.exe and is located in the msetup folder. Delete it and it will stop bothering you.

Don't get me wrong, this laptop is fantastic but considering the bloatware doesn't put itself in the startup list I had to dock an egg. That's rather obtrusive a
