Most Favorable Review

Pretty good, keys could be better

Logitech MX Keys Advanced Wireless Illuminated Keyboard
Logitech MX Keys Advanced Wireless Illuminated Keyboard

Pros: Connects easily Decent software Good battery life

Cons: Could use a higher rise, or adjustable legs Keys looked more comfortable in pictures than they really are Keys a bit too close together, I always hit volume up when reaching for Delete or F12

Overall Review: Overall a pretty good keyboard with decent features, but seems to me to be just a tad smaller than I would like it to b, and the keys, despite nice shape, aren't as comfortable as I expected. Pretty good to have as a travel keyboard, if anything, but I would probably get a different model if I had to replace it right now.

Works quite well

Pros: Good image quality.High resolution.Works with Windows Hello.

Cons: Probably not Logitech's problem, but getting it to properly work with Windows Hello is tricky.

Overall Review: Works perfectly fine as a Webcam. Might be overkill for videoconferencing, but video quality is very good.Getting it to work with Windows Hello was trickier, and most suggestions I have seen online did not work.What worked for me (YMMV): after installing all drivers per Logitech's documentation (including from Windows Update), open Windows Hello settings and set up facial recognition login. If everything is correct, it will show your face, with the depth recognition grid overlaid over it. No need to roll back to some ancient camera firmware as I have seen recommended.On a desktop it's probably all that's required. On a laptop with a built-in Hello camera, when crack the laptop lid open before unlocking the computer. If you don't, the red light on the camera will flash but it will not go through the recognition step. If you do, light will flash a bit longer, and it will recognize you and unlock the computer...

Does what it says

Pros: Easy to use, fast enough.

Overall Review: I used this on a laptop with failing built-in ethernet, and it works perfectly fine. Perfectly capable of achieving my full internet speed of ~500M/s, is easy to install, and no problems so far.

Overall Review: Seems to do exactly ehat a switch should. No issues so far.

Screws. In right size. What else could one want?

Silverstone SST-CA03 High Quality M.2 SSD Screw Kit for Computer Professionals and Enthusiasts
Silverstone SST-CA03 High Quality M.2 SSD Screw Kit for Computer Professionals and Enthusiasts

Pros: M.2 screws.

Cons: Can't buy just one.

Overall Review: I really needed only one screw, because my SSD did not come with one and motherboard didn't have one either, and this seemed to be the cheapest option. It's a screw. It does what it should. Works just fine.
