Pros: This is a very small KB. it takes up much less desk space than the ones with keypads, cursor control keys, and rows of programmable functions that I never get around to programming. It's quieter than the MicroSquash keyboard it replaces.
There are fewer parts to break.
Cons: I am greatly irritated by the design flaw which defaults to a double set of numbers while some characters (e.g. u and j) cannot be typed at all.
I am less than thrilled with the flatness of the keyboard as well. However, permanently propping up the top on a wrist rest is a good workaround.
Other Thoughts: I can't get over the design flaw which maps some of the keys to other characters. The "u" key, for example, registers as a "4." It's deliberate. The designers decided that the existing row of number keys should not be used, so they converted part of the KB to a numeric keypad. Thus, there are two ways to type a 4, but no way to type a u. It's infuriating. pressing "Function-Numlock" corrects, this, but more often than not I forget to change it until after I have messed up my password. Did they think that professional accountants were the major market for this particular keyboard?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ENERMAX UC-12EB 120mm Case Fan
Pros: This fan is as quiet as any I have ever used. In fact, it's quieter. It's a real marvel. Even on minimum power it moves more than enough air for my computer. My CPU and motherboard temps both run in the 30's. I don't overclock.
Cons: It doesn't move as much air as some fans do. Primarily, I think, because it doesn't spin particularly fast even at full power. If you're pushing your components to the limit of heat dissipation, you'll no doubt need something else. But I can't hear this fan to tell if it's working. If I did OC, I'd consider using a case with several of these.
Other Thoughts: The magnetic, no contact, bearing is a real and actual thing. The shaft of the fan floats on an electromagnetic field, similar to the way a magnet can be suspended in the air above another magnet.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Absolutely superb color photos.
Extremely low energy use.
Low temperature fusing, which prevents problems with certain specialty papers.
Cons: Our printer jammed about every third or fourth print job. We can's use it under these circumstances.
Other Thoughts: It is entirely possible that the printer's propensity to jam only manifest itself when we did some sort of special job (possibly duplexing or card stock, both of which we use).READ FULL REVIEW
