Microsoft Black USB Wired Desktop 600
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Functionable, cheap, has mouse 02/15/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Black USB Wired Desktop 600

Pros: (Decent function and touch
*Has dedicated A/V keys (all keys can be reassigned if you install the "intellitype" and/or "intellipoint" drivers from MS
Mouse function is solid but basic (expected)
*Wired (I hate wireless unless I HAVE to)
*Wires are of reasonable length (about 6' or 2 m)

Cons: *Play/Pause key will not work on anything but Mediaplayer .. For example doesn't work on Flash videos, Youtube videos, or even MS Silverlight videos.. (for IE 10 at least)
*Mouse is only 800 dpi, but at least it is optical!!
*The cords are stiff and a bit hard to manage

Other Thoughts: I have no explaination why it eosn't do the job.. they key "works" but isn't properly interfaced. I have posted on MS forum for more definition, but no result for now.
I will say I don't think this is the KEYBOARD, but some software issue with IE

Zalman MZ230ED Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Effective, efficient picture (appreciate LED vs LCD)
Decent color and adjustments
Speakers (not "hi-fi", but adequate and all I need)
Buttons are "feel-friendly" and have nice touch
Comes with cords (power, DVI, VGA, audio)
Ships in retail package.. adequate.. VERY LIGHT!

Cons: Cords are very short (barely reach from floor to tabletop
No HDMI (recommend HDMI-female to DVI-male adapter with HDMI cable (extra) or HDMI-male to DVI-male adapter with DVI cable (included) You can find the adapters for under $2 each
Without HDMI must have audio cord (included)
LED's do not evenly backlit screen esp at low brightness
Sound a bit "in a barrel" and not strong volume.. it's ok

Other Thoughts: I know Zalman just sources this, but their reputation was enough to get me to buy such a "bargain" unit and they are backing it with a good warranty
I bought as a backup to my ACER which occasionally "smears" the bottom third of the screen and to replace an old CRT 15" unit
