Logitech K120 Wired Standard USB Keyboard - Black
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Just a good keyboard 07/01/2015

This review is from: Logitech K120 Wired Standard USB Keyboard - Black

Pros: Nice feel for a membrane keyboard
Not too loud, but not silent
Keys actually respond when pressed (read other thoughts on this)
Spill resistant
Very thin and light, but not too flimsy

This is my third K120, and I cannot use any other keyboard now. (The death of my two previous ones were a result of my own errors and clumsiness). I do some mild gaming, and really like this keyboard. It's very thin, and I don't like to actuate my wrist and fingers very high to type. The K120 sits low on my desk and feels nice.

Cons: Media keys would be cool, but it's a keyboard under $20.

Other Thoughts: After the recent death of my second K120, I wanted to try some other keyboards. I tried a Logitech 510+, a 710+ mechanical keyboard, a Razer Blackwidow Chroma, and a few others I can't even remember. I ended up getting yet another K120, because it felt so much better to me.

I mentioned in pros about the keys actually responding when pressed. What I mean by that, is when you press a key down on a K120 and feel that "bump", it actually responds and sends the signal. The 510 keyboard didn't do this. You would press a key, it would "bump", but not respond unless you pressed it further. The mechanical keyboards didn't have this problem, though.

I do like how a mechanical keyboard feels and clicks, but I don't like how "fat" they are to accommodate the tall switches. The keys themselves are taller too, and I feel like my fingers are jumping a chasm to reach the next key. The K120 is nice and thin, and the keys are the perfect size and are spaced well.

5 out of 5 eggs Beefy 03/03/2015

This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 970 4GB G1 GAMING OC EDITION

Pros: Runs everything I've been throwing at it flawlessly
Quiet
Looks great in case with the lit up "Windforce" logo

Cons: The moment I read that the card is actually 3.5g, all of my games suddenly looked like they were running on Commodore 64 graphics. I am infuriated, and all of the smooth gameplay and crispness I was granted when I was FALSELY lead to believe that it was a 4g card went out the window. Everyone grab your torches and pitchforks right now, and let us march to Nvidia...

----Are they gone?--- Great!

In all seriousness, I have no cons for this card. The only thing is my CPU, which is causing a serious bottleneck in certain games, but that's not the card's fault.

Other Thoughts: For those dealt a serious blow and are crushed by the 3.5 fiasco, put some peel and stick flames on the case. It'll really help.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: LED color and change option was cool
The intermittent fan was nice and quiet
Had enough juice for what I needed

Cons: Died after a month of use. It first started cutting off after several hours, then fewer hours, then eventually about 10 minutes. Had to RMA it, and I'm still waiting for the "new" one to return.

Other Thoughts: Currently using my, now antique, Thermaltake 430w PSU as a backup, which has been in 4 rigs through it's life.

I would rate a bit higher because the RMA process was fairly simple, but my problem is that not only was the original PSU deemed "defective", then returned and "refurbished", but it is now being returned a third time to the factory for more issues. What does it take to get a functioning PSU?
