This review is from: eForCity 10 Assorted Color Touch Screen Stylus
Pros: I'm having no problems with them. They do pretty much what they say they will.
In fact, I'd bought a 5 pack of similar ones elsewhere a couple of months ago (they even look like the same brand). Right away the rubber tips started pushing into the tubes on 4 out of 5 of them. I don't see that even thinking of happening with these guys. Maybe time will change my mind... who knows?
I'm very happy with my purchase. I even got 'em on sale for a steal, making it even a better buy!
Cons: None that I can see so far!
Other Thoughts: One other reviewer said that "Easier, safer and more efficient to use your finger instead of this. You have to press down really hard and risk damaging screen to use this."
On my phone, I can adjust the sensitivity, and I have mine set on high sensitivity. There seems to be no problems with pressing too hard. I guess I have fat fingers, & I've got a real problem with texting. Not anymore though. These puppies seem to be just what the doctor ordered.
Pros: This keyboard is replacing an older Logitech membrane keyboard that served its life in about 2 years. I'd go so far as to think that I should be able to easily get 5 years out of this one. I'm not a gamer, so I won't pretend that I am. I bought this, a mechanical keyboard, because I want one that’s going to last. And who else puts more mileage on a keyboard than a gamer?
The first thing I’ve noticed is its weight! It feels rugged! Typing on this puppy is a breeze. It’s small, but not overly so. The USB cord is nice and thick, but still flexible (I do wish it were braided, but I won’t even knock off an egg for that.). The backlighting is fantastic, with switching from off, and 4 more levels of brightness. I have mine set on the lowest, and it’s easily visible.
If you’re looking for a keyboard with a lot of amenities, I must say, you should look elsewhere. This keyboard has sparse extras. It does have a set of Media Keys with FF, Stop, Pause, and volume up/down and mute. Also, it has a switch that will disable your Windows Key so it doesn’t interfere with gaming, but I don’t see me ever using that.
Cons: >First off, there's no key puller, I already knew this though before I bought it. I thought I might have one here at the homestead, but I don’t. I’ll scour NewEgg, and pick one up for cheap.
> LED lights for the NUMLOCK and CAPSLOCK, and SCROL LOCK can't be adjusted, and are on the verge of being too bright. If it becomes a hassle, a little piece of some kind of tape ought to do the trick.
>A few other people have posted on the problem of seeing the lowercase special characters in the function keys, as well as the number keys (on the main keyboard). And I’m here to say; yes… it’s a small problem. I’m getting over it.
>The biggest problem for me, I guess is the accessibility of the media keys is my biggest complaint. They’re arranged so that you have to do a combination of keys to access them. Adding to that, they’re far enough apart; that I have to quit what I’m doing, and use two hands to get to ‘em. If accessibility is a problem, I'd suggest going with a more expensive keyboard.
Other Thoughts: In spite of my any of my complaints about accessibility features, I won’t even knock off an egg, because this is such an awesome keyboard. Every letter I type screams of quality. If I had the money, I’d probably buy something that would be near heaven. But on my paycheck, you get a lot of keyboard, for very little money. I bought this keyboard not because it was on sale (which it was), but partially because of all the positive reviews. And I’m here to back everyone of them up.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It was on sale for the price of $7.99 with free shipping. Hard to beat at that price, It types, and it's a keyboard with a few goodies, like a hotkey for the calculator, volume up/down with a mute button. Even at the regular price of $14.99 it feels like it may not be too bad a deal, and may last a couple of years.
Cons: BUT... I'm not sure how long it's going to work. I gave it a gentle twist, and it flexed like crazy. It feels very flimsy and small...
The cord is somewhat short I feel (about 5ft)... I had to use an extension cord to get it to the computer.
The backspace key is awkwardly small, and the whole keyboard layout is awkward. It uses an oversized <Enter> Key, and a horribly small <Backspace> key, that if I want to use it, I've got to look for it. It has an irritating type-feel to the keys, and they're somewhat hard to press fully and comfortably. I find myself having to hit a key twice sometimes to get it to register.
The Number Lock/Caps Lock light is very dim, and you'd almost have to have the lights off to see it.
Other Thoughts: Bearing in mind 1> I've only had the keyboard for a day, and maybe the keys might "break in" in a week or so.
2> I only bought this keyboard on the spur of the minute, because my old one died on me. I'll prolly use it for a couple of weeks, and I'll be ordering a more high end keyboard. One that I'm sure I can give some high recommendations for.
All in all, it's worth the money spent.
