Pros: Backlighting is subtle and awesome looking. Brown switches feel nice to type on. Overall, feels like a quality keyboard and built well.
Cons: 1) I'm very reliant on the function keys of my keyboard. While this has them, they placed poorly along F1-F7, while the Fn key is all the way on the right hand side of the keyboard. This layout forces you to hold Fn with your right hand and to hit the function key of your choice with your left hand.
The previous keyboard I came from had the commonly used media keys on F9-F12, allowing you to hold the function key with your thumb and to easily press the media keys with your index finger.
2) The numlock/caplock/scroll lock lights are incredibly bright if you're looking straight down at the keyboard. If you're reclined back in a chair and viewing the keyboard from an angle then it's not a problem, but for anyone sitting with proper posture looking straight down, you're in for a blinding experience.
3) I also find my pinky rubbing against the corner of the Left Control key and find it to be pretty frustrating and uncomfortable. I'm going to need to force myself to key my idle pinky someplace else.
This review is from: Shark NV22L Navigator Upright Vacuum
Pros: Picks up things my last didn't, brush shuts itself off if something gets caught in it...which is very good for me since I have a cheap carpet where strands sometimes get pulled up. Shark could get away with selling this for over $400, that's how good it is. Cup is extremely easy to empty out without making a mess all over.
Cons: Somewhat small cup, but even in my house where I have 5 cats and a dog, I can do two rooms before needing to empty it.
Other Thoughts: I am a 27 year old guy who bought this as a Mother's Day gift, men are supposed to get excited over sports...not vacuums, but I can't help it with such a great item.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Das Keyboard DASK3ULTMS1SI Black USB Wired Standard Model S Ultimate Silent Keyboard
Pros: I honestly hadn't heard of mechanical keyboards until about a week ago. I've used them when I was a kid in the 80's, but I didn't understand anything about keyboards then. I started reading up on them and was intrigued. My main problem while deciding what to buy was whether I wanted the silent or original model.
I personally like the clicking of the original, but my boyfriend sleeps over at night and will be on my PC while I try and sleep. Therefore I chose the quieter of the two. This "Silent" keyboard is not silent at all. It's not loud by any means, but it sounds more or less like a regular rubber dome keyboard.
The feel and quality of the keyboard is impressive. Its fairly dense and heavy considering it's rather small. I came close to getting the Black Widow mechanical keyboard, I liked the backlighting and the function keys, but I read too many reviews of keys cracking after a fairly short time.
Cons: The only possible con I can think of is the finish of the frame. It's like a black piano finish, and will most definitely attract dust, animal hair and smudges along with any finger prints. It isn't terrible looking, but unless you wipe it down after every day it won't keep that shiny new look like when you pull it out of the box. I wanted to deduct half an egg for this but that's not possible, and I think the keyboard overall deserves to round up rather than down.
Other Thoughts: When I told my friends what I spent on this on the day I ordered it, they all thought I was crazy and that this was a complete waste of money. Every single one of them after using it themselves immediately understood why this was worth every penny.
It's a beautiful keyboard, it's a pleasure to type on. The only downside is I'll have to buy one to use at work, because once you get used to typing on a mechanical keyboard you'll hate to use conventional rubber dome ones.
