Logitech K750 2.4GHz Wireless Solar Powered Keyboard - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs A few years later... 08/20/2015

This review is from: Logitech K750 2.4GHz Wireless Solar Powered Keyboard - Black

Pros: This product gets and deserves 2 eggs (see numerous issues in Cons and Other thoughts). It's better to list why it gets 2 eggs than why it got knocked down 3. One of the better "scissor-type" keys I've used (laptop keyboards and these are "scissor-type" keys). Great tactile feedback, much more than any other KB like this (and I've had about a dozen "scissor types" trying to find just the right one). Is a little louder than others, but I like that. Has some weight to it, mixed with the rubber feet kept is very steady on my glass and wood desks without moving (unlike others!). It also is very compact, which was a plus for me. In addition to compact, it was very very thin! This I liked the most as it seemed like I was typing right on the desk.

Cons: See Other Thoughts: 4 RMAs over 2.5 years. Also, it doesn't seem to charge too well in a mid-level brightness room. Every 1 month or so, I have to place it on the window during 1 day (can be cloudy, still charges) to full charge - usage is about 3 to 4 hours a day. During those days I leave the house for working at client site or something. Because such an annoyance happening so often, I set my calendar to remind me once a month to "Put KB in Window to Charge"

Other Thoughts: After my purchase in 2012, I've had a long long history with these keyboards (plural). That is plural because I've gone through 4 RMAs for this board. The first one the left SHIFT key broke off (I game a lot, "SHIFT" being used for sprinting). They sent me an entire replacement - that lasted 6 days before the battery died (it wouldn't charge!!). They sent me another replacement (this time, they wanted that 2nd one back in exchange - return label, no cost so far). That's cool. Now on the 3rd version, I used it for about 6 months and it just stopped charging. About to give up, I just called again and they sent me another one. Now, this version is black (all others had a WHITE base). Cool. Except, the LEFT key broke off on day 1! Called and got a 5th. I switched to a mechanical after all these years and RMAs. I use it as a backup and setup machine KB now. If it dies again, outta warranty, it goes into the trash. FINAL THOUGHTS: Overall, I really really liked this keyboard and would be using still today if it wasn't for all the RMAs and issues. Even the charging, while annoying, was livable. But, I would not recommend this to a friend because of all the troubles. If Logitech can get their Quality Control fixed company wide (I've owned a dozen+ Logitech devices: every-single-one-had-to-be-RMA'd-at-least-once!!!!), I may recommend Logitech. But as it stands, I just used their webcam and got rid of everything else (a long long list of things).

ASUS Nexus 7 FHD Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro Quad-Core 2 GB DDR3 Memory 32 GB Flash 7.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Very good in hand, compact.

Cons: USB plug keeps breaking - I've replaced it twice. MMC memory on the primary motherboard has failed at least once - it is of a cheap brand that has limited writes. Asus warranty is awful. It gets 3 eggs because it is useful. Wifi is also very slow.

Other Thoughts: While an awesome device, the USB connector stops working and the MMC memory has limited writes. I've had to service this unit myself 3 times from parts I found used online. I got this for my daughter where I was erasing and filling 28GB worth of TV shows and Movies I'd say 3 times before it failed. After I replaced the motherboard, I found out about the flawed memory. Since then I have carefully selected what to write, and have not erased it since - it will remain as-is, as a streaming device going forward. Just as Google intended it to be by not giving us an SDcard! Argh...

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Very fast. As advertised. Still going after 2 years.

Cons: Price when I bought it was a LOT higher.

Other Thoughts: I have had two of these in two different systems for over 2 years. I write a LOT of data to them almost daily (40 to 100 GB, copying VMs back and forth). Still going strong! But, my mSATA version of this drive did fail! Take note!
