This review is from: Logitech MK710 2.4GHz Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo - Black
Pros: Uses the Unified nano USB receiver, so you can mix and match with other Unified-compatible products.
The mouse in this bundle is better than the one in the similarly-priced MK700; it's sold separately as the Marathon mouse. The mouse shape fits my hand better (the MK700 mouse is a bit too "flat" for my liking). The tactile/free-wheeling switch for the scroll wheel is on top of the mouse (not on the bottom like the MK700 mouse).
The keyboard is essentially the same as the MK700. This is one of the few Logitech keyboards that has a standard 3x2 key layout for the Ins / Home / PgUp / Del / End / PgDn keys. Most other Logitech keyboards have a 5-key layout, where the Delete key takes up 2 rows.
Cons: Wish the mouse had rechargeable batteries, but you could always use your own rechargeable AA's.
The mouse still feels a bit small - it's really more suited for use with a laptop than a desktop.
The keyboard doesn't use the usual LEDs for the Caps Lock / Num Lock indicators; it has a small LCD screen, but it's hard to read in low light.
Other Thoughts: This is basically the "upgrade" to the MK700 bundle, and they cost about the same. If you have a choice, you'll probably enjoy the MK710 more.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BELKIN F3U134vFLEX Flexible USB Adapter
Pros: These things are great. It's basically a little USB extender with an articulated joint in the middle. The joint swivels +/- 180 degrees in two axes, so you can fit USB dongles in a very small space. I use them on the front of the machine for the wireless dongles for mice/keyboards. I also use one on the back of a machine to hold a USB smart card fob, so I can fold it up next to the PC and move it a little closer to the wall.
Cons: A bit expensive for what they are.
Other Thoughts: These are aimed at the notebook market, where you might have USB ports so close together that one device blocks an adjacent port. But I think they also work great for USB devices that you leave plugged in on a desktop machine.READ FULL REVIEW
