Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard for Business
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Just got this keyboard 08/29/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard for Business

Pros: The keys have a nice soft feel to them and the keyboard is quieter than I expected. It seems to me that the buttons are closer together than what I normally type on, just any old computer keyboard, but once I get used to it I guess the less my fingers travel the faster I may be able to type. The palmrest is removable and comes with batteries.

Cons: The key layout is a bit odd. Insert is shifted up to be on the same key as Print Screen to make room for an extra large delete key, and Pause/Break is missing entirely... I guess to make room for a Calculator button, why this button couldn't also operate as Pause is beyond me because all the other Function buttons (F1 through F12) have alternative uses, like you would find on a laptop keyboard - Minus one star.

There are no lights to indicate the status of Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, or Number Lock. There is however a low battery indicator, which didn't light up at all when I received my keyboard because... the batteries were completely dead. Not only were the batteries dead but they were from two different batches over a year apart! One manufactured in July, 2011 and the other September 2012. - Minus another star.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm happy with the keyboard but it's shortcomings bothered me enough that I removed two stars. Maybe you won't mind the missing Pause/Break key and will come with two good batteries.

Rosewill RCW-616 Laptop 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It works now that I've fixed it.

Cons: It didn't work, I found six bad solder joints on the 2.5" side of this adapter. Had to break out the soldering iron to fix them... they looked like they had no solder on them at all and the entire thing looks sloppy, it must have been hand done. It's working now that I've soldered those six pins.

StarTech IDE2SAT IDE to SATA Drive Mounted Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great! 08/12/2014

This review is from: StarTech IDE2SAT IDE to SATA Drive Mounted Adapter

Pros: I have used these twice now to replace failing HDDs in older computers that simply couldn't be cheaply be replaced. At first I tried the only IDE HDD that Newegg still sells brand-new but it failed inside of six months. I decided to try one of these and a WD Caviar Black drive and now I know that this is the solution I should have chosen in the first place. A life saver.

Cons: None.
