This review is from: Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000
Pros: The keyboard is full of nifty features(buttons) and feels great when typing. The rubberized wrist rest is very soft. There is one major flaw that I encountered...
Cons: The space bar. Something is awfully wrong with it or it could be just the one I have is defective but pressing in the far right doesn't work.
Other Thoughts: I discovered a guide online that remedies the con and makes the space bar reliable. You can pull the space bar off, get a post-it note and fold it to fit into the hollow post in the middle of the space bar. Next cut the post-it note down so about 1/8" of it sticks out. Put it back together and it should now catch when you press the space bar anywhere.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RHMS-13003 Diamond, 2 Joint Spring Arm
Pros: An awesome addition to my battle station. The arm allows me to place a 23.6" widescreen monitor well above my 27" monitor with about a 3" gap. So that gives you an idea of how high this single arm can reach. The second arm has a cable management system built into it which makes the entire system complete and clean.
Cons: No complaints at all.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill Mechanical Keyboard RK-9000RE with Cherry MX Red Switch
Pros: Super responsive, wholesome mechanical clicks, loved typing on this keyboard. Superb quality for the 3 months it was operational.
Cons: Very poor soldering job on the mini USB port. About 3 months into using it, it broke free and made the keyboard completely useless.
Other Thoughts: If you love this keyboard enough to attempt a soldering job and don't care to wait for a replacement that could also fail just as quickly, the keyboard isn't very hard to take apart. First, unscrew all visible screws and the one under the sticker in the middle and get a thin/flat prying mechanism(I used a knife) to slide the keyboard apart from its shell at the seam. The mini USB port has plenty of clearance to work around without having to dismantle it any further.
After soldering the mini USB port back nice and solid, it has been operational since. (It has been over a year now.)
