Logitech K830 920-006081 USB RF Wireless Mini Illuminated Living-Room Keyboard with Touchpad
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Small, very light weight, somewhat customizable with available software from Logitech, good battery life.

Cons: Although their software promises that the F keys can ALL be modified or even returned to the normal F key functions, this isn't currently true. F10, F11 and F12 are permanently assigned as media controls for back, play/pause and forward, respectively. So if your software uses those F keys, you may be somewhat frustrated.

I frequently switch between normal and full-screen in IE with the F11 key, but with this keyboard I must add the FN key with my other hand. I also have other software that uses F11, so this might bug me more than other folks.

Also, even though it's illuminated very nicely, only those reassigned labels light up on the F keys. The F1 - F12 labels are added in an orange color which is invisible without direct light shining on the keyboard, and even then don't stand out at all.

Other Thoughts: People have been complaining to Logitech about these types of changes since they brought out their first Illuminated Keyboard, but they don't seem to listen at all. They do make occasional, seemingly random, changes. For example, this one has reassigned the F8 key to open IE to your home page. Their other illuminated keyboards have reassigned F1. Changing from one to another only leads to problems.

BitFenix Spectre Pro All Black 120mm Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs We'll see... 11/22/2014

This review is from: BitFenix Spectre Pro All Black 120mm Case Fan

Pros: Spun up right away

Cons: Bearing noise was immediately extreme; much louder than the six-year-old fan (which ran 24/7) it was to replace! Have RMA'd and hopefully will get back one which is as quiet as other reviews implied.

Other Thoughts: This sounded like a very old sleeve bearing. It was among the loudest fan bearings I've ever heard, and was the first NEW fan I've bought ANYWHERE with nasty bearing noise.

Belkin Home/Office BE106000-10 6-Outlets Surge Suppressor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Not bad 11/03/2013

This review is from: Belkin Home/Office BE106000-10 6-Outlets Surge Suppressor

Pros: Ten foot cord, slim design, compact size.

Cons: This may be just me, but I was disappointed to find that it DOES have a switch. (It's on the end with the cord.) I was hoping that it didn't have one, because switches are too easily bumped - especially by pets - causing things to turn off unexpectedly. And it only takes a very light touch to turn this one off. At least it's in a place that makes it less likely to be bumped, on the end and next to the cord. But it would be better IMHO if it didn't have a switch at all.

Other Thoughts: The thin design makes it possible to fit this between a piece of furniture and a wall, keeping it out of sight.
