Pros: This is my favorite keyboard. I have used many and always come back to the good old trusty Microsoft Ergonomic 4000. In fact, I have a stockpile of three of these in case Microsoft stops making them. I absolutely adore the layout. The key press is nice and springy and it doesn't make too much noise to press. Have I mentioned it's ergonomic?
Cons: Some could argue the keys are mushy (but I think they're just right). The S,L,C, and B keys are starting to wear off which is really no problem but doesn't hint the best in quality. I had previously had one of these that broke, I am on my second one, though the other lasted ~2 years. This one is going on 3.
Other Thoughts: I just love this keyboard's layout. If other companies made similar ergonomic split layouts, Microsoft might have a competitor, but right now this is pretty much the only act in town.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: OK transfer speed, reliable technically
Has 4gb, as advertised (of course)
No cap to lose
Cons: The 'Capless design' which should really be a plus, is, unfortunately poorly designed. After a long amount of heavy use (it sits in my pocket, and I fiddle with it) It is easy to jam in the closed position, sometimes requiring a screwdriver to open. I feel that this would happen with normal use, even if I did not use it in an unusual use pattern.
Other Thoughts: It looks nice, I bought two of them; the NAND inside is still going strong.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Big screen, good resolution
Cheap, easily one of the cheapest in the 23/24" range
Generally good colors
Cons: Now, where do I start:
First, the thing that makes me the most angry about this monitor, with "2ms" response time, is the fact that an enormous amount of ghosting occurs. Anywhere from scrolling down a page to moving a window around the screen creates a large ghost trail behind it. Maybe I have a bad monitor, or oversensitive eyes, but I don't know how other people don't see this. For an example gamewise, I have seen ghost trails on bullets in Bad Company 2.
The second issue is the leaking. When the monitor is supposed to be showing a black screen, it has white light leaking through on all sides. And not just a little bit, it is definitely distracting when watching dark movies, or playing darker games.
Another issue is that there is a very poor viewing angle; if you are anything off center, colors are very distorted.
The final issue is the control scheme: The buttons are extremely unintuitive, and the on-screen menu is even worse.
Other Thoughts: In all, I was hoping to get a cheap, large, and good monitor for gaming. Unfortunatly, whether it be that I got a bad monitor, or that Asus is advertising specs falsely. This monitor is pretty bad in just about every regard.READ FULL REVIEW
