Logitech K200 Black 8 Function Keys USB Wired Standard Keyboard for Business
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This keyboard is easy to type on, and the keys are quiet.

All the keys are in a standard location (some keyboards move the \ key or navigation keys; this one doesn't). Special keys to give quick access to mute & volume controls, email, etc.

It uses a wired connection so you don't have to worry about replacing batteries.

Also, the price is good.

Cons: It doesn't work with PS/2 using a USB-PS/2 adapter; it needs to actually be plugged into a USB port.

Also, it doesn't work with some software, such as the Windows 7 recovery software on the Windows 7 install disc. When using the Windows 7 recovery recently, I had to plug in a different keyboard in order to be able to type.

Other Thoughts: If I had known that this keyboard doesn't work with some software (Windows 7 recovery), perhaps I would have thought twice before buying this keyboard. Luckily one of my other computers has a keyboard that works with that though. At any rate, Logitech tends to make fairly good products overall.

The cable coming out of the keyboard is on the right side. Some other keyboards I've used have a duct for the cable to let you change where the cable comes out of the keyboard, to help keep things organized; this keyboard doesn't do that. I think that would be a nice touch, but it isn't a dealbreaker.

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs One of the best versions of Windows 11/17/2012

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros: Windows 7 is reliable. I have been using Windows 7 on several computers since it was released and have a hard time remembering it crashing for me.

It's also faster than previous versions of Windows. One of the things you'll most likely notice is that it seems faster to boot up and to shut down. File searching seems faster too.

Since Windows has the largest market share for a consumer operating system, it has the largest selection of software and the most device support. Whatever you want to do with a computer, there's likely software available for Windows to do it. That includes gaming. Also, if you like to build your own computer or if you buy any peripherals for your computer, any devices you buy are likely to include a hardware driver to enable them to work with Windows.

Windows 7 is optimized a bit compared to Windows Vista and performs well with less RAM and a smaller hard drive.

Also, the main advantage of the 64-bit version is that it lets you use heaps of memory - It does not have the 4GB limit of the 32-bit version. The Professional edition of Windows 7 64-bit lets you use up to 192GB of RAM (compared to 16GB for Home Premium and 8GB for Home Basic).

Windows 7 is also the last version of Windows to feature the classic Windows taskbar and desktop that have pretty much existed since Windows 95. Windows 8 is a game changer, so if you are not sold on Windows 8's new user interface, you may want to stick with Windows 7 until it truly becomes obsolete.

Also, NewEgg's price is fairly reasonable.

Cons: Windows 7 is no longer the newest version of Windows, so Microsoft won't be supporting it for much longer.
