Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard for Business
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Excellent when on sale 03/17/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard for Business

Pros: Clean simple, design. Wireless. Ergonomic. Easy to install and use. Pretty much defines "standard keyboard" but on the higher scale. A solid product, for what it is.

COMES WITH BATTERIES!! ZOMG!!1!

Cons: Nothing to indicate the status caps lock or num lock.

Other Thoughts: I bought three of these on sale for ~$22 each; one for myself and one for each of my parents. All three of us felt that the lack of caps lock/num lock indicators was a buzzkill. The design may not feel comfortable for those with larger hands. Regardless, these were excellent keyboards for the sale price, despite not being quite what I expected.

Samsung 6500 32
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Great, but not what was expected. 11/22/2012

This review is from: Samsung 6500 32" 1080p 120Hz 3D Slim LED Smart TV UN32ES6500FXZA

Pros: Beautiful image, good response time, 3D works well and looks great, WiFi was easy to set up, low glare, came with two pairs of glasses WITH batteries.

This TV is everything the description makes it out to be (other than refresh rate; see below)

Cons: This is a 60 Hz TV. Or maybe a dual 60 Hz where the max frame rate is 60 and a second frame rate is dedicated to 3D. Regardless, the info button on the remote shows 60 frames, third party software (Fraps) shows 60 frames, Windows shows 60 frames, and showing FPS while gaming shows no more than 60 frames (currently running dual GTX 480s in SLI).

Default 16:9 ratio was larger than the screen size of the TV when connected to PC. Had to stretch to fit until finding the fix (see 'renaming source' in Other Thoughts)

Personally, I distrust the marketing term CMR. I don't mind if performance features are summed up into one arbitrary number, but please provide a link to details that explain the rating (Samsung's website does not seem to do this). If CMR becomes an industry standard, great. If CMR is only a Samsung standard, add it to the ignore list.

Other Thoughts: I originally purchased this TV to be used as a monitor for PC gaming. For the color and picture to be represented correctly, one must rename the source to HDMI/DVI PC (emphasis on 'PC': it's built in, but is worded as if it only renames, not actually changes the mode). Renaming the input to PC works well, but disables a lot of features in the TV (not sure if it matters, nothing explains what the features really do).

Final thoughts: if you want a TV for watching movies or using the various apps that are built in or can be downloaded, you may enjoy this TV. However, if your primary intent is for PC gaming, make sure you understand exactly what you're buying. I feel this is a good product, but also feel it was not adequately marketed for someone with gaming in mind (renaming source to PC disables Game Mode, which was one of the original selling points for me).

Note: I have not tested this TV with console gaming.
