Kensngton Black Windshield/Vent Car Mount for Smartphones (K39217US)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Solid and flexible mount 05/03/2012

This review is from: Kensngton Black Windshield/Vent Car Mount for Smartphones (K39217US)

Pros: The window mount is very sturdy, and the clamp design is great (squeeze the ratcheting sides around the phone to lock in place; push a button on the back to release). The vent mount seems somewhat more fragile, but is very solid when mounted. Vent mount also has a nice ball joint so you can adjust the angle of the cradle.

Cons: When I bought this, I intended to use the window mount. However, because of the long arm, it tends to bob up and down - which can be somewhat distracting, and also annoying if you're trying to look at a map. I only really notice it on surface streets though - on the (relatively smoother) highway it's much better.

Other Thoughts: This is the first car mount I've owned, so I'm guessing that any mount with an adjustable arm will bob a little bit.

Adesso ACK-595UB Mini USB Keyboard (Black)

2 out of 5 eggs Not good for fast typists 01/16/2009

This review is from: Adesso ACK-595UB Mini USB Keyboard (Black)

Pros: Compact, which is exactly what I was looking for.

Cons: If you type faster than about 50wpm, it begins to transpose keys. I repeated this test many times, and with other standard keyboards - so it's not because I was accidentally transposing them myself. If you type too quickly, it really will flip two keys once in a while!

Other Thoughts: After a while (usually a few days, sometimes only a few hours), the keyboard stops working (a message pops up that says something along the lines of "An unrecognized USB device has been inserted"). Unplugging and replugging fixes it most of the time. I leave my computer running all the time, so maybe turning it on and off each day would reset the keyboard frequently enough that this wouldn't happen. I was going to RMA, but it's already been a few weeks.

Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Disappointing 05/20/2008

This review is from: Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000

Pros: Split design allows better wrist positioning, which is the only thing I bought this keyboard for.

Cons: Almost all the ergonomic benefit this keyboard might have had is lost by how stiff the keys are. The spacebar especially requires far too much pressure to push.

Other Thoughts: I didn't notice how hard it was to push the keys in the store, but it was immediately apparent when I opened the box at home. I am used to Logitech keyboards, but unfortunately they do not offer a good ergonomic keyboard (the "Wave" doesn't count). I can only hope the keys on this one loosen up after a few months...
