Kanex QWERTYX Bluetooth Wireless Standard Multi-Sync Keyboard
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Overall, good, but a few gotcha's 01/22/2015

This review is from: Kanex QWERTYX Bluetooth Wireless Standard Multi-Sync Keyboard

Pros: Feels good for standard format keyboard.
- Like the multi-sync ability

Overall, probably very much like what Apple would have done if they had a full sized bluetooth enabled keyboard with a few exceptions...

Cons: Now, while this is likely close to what Apple would have done, a few things to keep in mind.

Function Keys:
Apple keyboards and other off brand keyboards give you an option to make the F1 - F15 keys function as F keys w/o having to hit the function (Fn) key. Effectivity making the Apple only keys work only if you hit the (Fn) key for Brightness, volume, power, etc..

Even on the Mac, their are some programs that are function key heavy and, like me, some people require F keys be default for productivity reasons..

If you're a heavy Function (F1-F15) key user, do not get this keyboard. Kanex does not, had says they will not, offer an option to swap to F keys by default like others do..

This is a good keyboard, solid, but also it's not true aluminum, it's faux plastic.. Still looks good, just don't expect a shinny keyboard. :)

Other Thoughts: I like they keyboard, not sure if I'll keep it, really a bummer that cannot make F keys default.

LG  27MB85R-B  Black  27
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: They make no mention that this is a Thunderbolt monitor. It is, will use Thunderbolt 2 technology. Will connect the USB 3 hub and use TB port. You can daisy chain other TB monitors or data products off this monitor.

Cons: have to hunt for drivers for Mac..

Other Thoughts: This is the replacement Thunderbolt monitor that Apple never made. Updated USB ports and Thunderbolt 2 technology.

Pros: Great price, great no frills high res monitor..

Cons: not fancy, but I knew that.. so I'm OK with that

Other Thoughts: I hesitated on the referb... but don't regret it.. It's been working like a champ for 3 months now... great deal..
