Pros: Low cost
Simple without unnecessary frills
Nice key action
Cons: Keys are not lighted
Other Thoughts: This is a wired USB keyboard. I purchased a Microsoft Wired Keyboard 600 in November of 2011. It worked well, but I spilled coffee on it (which had a lot of sticky sugar) and the keys would on rare occasion stick and I would have to unplug the USB connector and plug it back in to stop the stuck key. It looks like about 10% of the users of this keyboard complain about stuck/repeating keys.
The new model I purchased this week (model 1576) was manufactured March 2016. Weirdly, the markings on the keyboard have been moved from the upper-left-corner of each key to the center of each key. It really looks odd when you first see it.
I love the simplicity and the feel of the keys on this particular keyboard and see no reason to spend more on any other board.
Pros: Lasted 4 years
Cons: Stopped working after reading perhaps 400 DVDs, 50 Blu-rays and writing perhaps 25 DVDs and 5 Blu-rays.
I took it apart and noted a transistor that had exploded and left a scorched mark on the inside of the drive's case.
Other Thoughts: Reading the reviews it looks like about 25% of these devices stop working within a year. So, maybe I should count myself lucky.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Not sure at this point. I mostly rely on some dated smallnetbuilder reviews.
Cons: Not sure at this point. I mostly rely on some dated smallnetbuilder reviews.
Other Thoughts: Reading the reviews, I'm not seeing which firmware version the reviewers are using. If they are not using Ver.184.108.40.206917 then the review is not helpful. There are 3 open source firmware versions available. I assume none of these reviewers are running non-Linksys firmware... but, how would I know?READ FULL REVIEW
