Been having some bad luck with keyboards lately. My last favorite, the Logitech Access Keyboard served me well for over 3 years with great key response and nice feel. Heck, that thing rocked for just about everything.
But, a misfortunate coffee spilled brought a quick end to her.
So, I was using the stock keyboard that came with my PC for the last week. God, what a pile of crap. My biggest complaint was that the shift key combos were too slow, so I would either miss the cap or capitalize 2 letters. What a pain. It was just a clunker.
Wow! I’ve always been a big fan of laptop keyboards. I like the quietness and the key response. Plus, there is a little bit of a solid feel to the keys usually that I like. This keyboard works just like that. It’s quiet, has great response and is plenty fast. Highly recommend it if you are in the market. Price wasn’t horrible at $70 including the mouse.
I didn’t really need the mouse. The one I have been using is a work horse and hasn’t given me any problems in the 5+ years I’ve had it. But’s it’s nice to have a matched set. One of the cool things with the new mouse is that the scroll wheel also has a side to side function that will do a bunch of things (I’m sure) including switch between tabs in Firefox, which is wicked cool!
As I’ve said in the past, it really doesn’t take much for me.
