Logitech Wireless Combo MK260 920-002950 Black 8 Hot Keys USB RF Wireless Standard Keyboard and Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Dedicated keys for play/stop; speaker off, louder, softer; home; mail; sleep; and calculator. Good key action. Key characters are covered with clear protective plastic--no wear-off. Freedom from a cable is very, very nice. Mouse works fine.

Cons: There are no led indicators for CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK. If you type a password with CAPS LOCK on, there's no way to know until until you're rejectied. One never realizes how important these little lights are until they're gone.

The keyboard transmitter and receiver are too weak. Sometimes keystrokes do nothing. Sometimes they do nothing for a while, then all the characters typed appear as if they were coughed up from a crippled buffer. The buffer and latch circuitry could need work.

The keyboard is underpowered at 3.0 volts (two AA's) Logitech, in a new design cycle, should slip two more battery slots in the keyboard. Four AA's could provide either 6 volts or more current. This would provide plenty of power for led's and logic circuits.

Other Thoughts: If I had it to do over, I would wait to buy to buy a later model. Some people won't care about the missing indicator lights, but I would pay a little more for them.

NETGEAR ProSAFE 5-Port Fast Ethernet Switch (FS105) - Lifetime Warranty

5 out of 5 eggs Life-changing hardware 08/09/2011

This review is from: NETGEAR ProSAFE 5-Port Fast Ethernet Switch (FS105) - Lifetime Warranty

Pros: F A S T! Each line gets its own connection--no multiplex polling. With the $10 rebate on a future NetGear purchase, the price is very reasonable.

Cons: Can't see all leds unless you install it with a mirror.

MSI H61M-P21 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Cannot adapt to adapter 08/09/2011

This review is from: MSI H61M-P21 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Very good mobo. But...

Cons: The MSI H61M-P21 (B3) images all show a display adapter slot. The slot probably works, but not for a display adapter. The onboard video is the only choice you have. There is no bypass. There is no deactivation. It's Night of the Living Onboard. When disabled or uninstalled with Device Manager, it comes back.

Other Thoughts: If you want dual displays, get another board.
