Thread: I actually bought a Microsoft product recently

  1. #1

    Default I actually bought a Microsoft product recently

    Yeah I know, mainly my new keyboard that I am typing on now.
    My friggin $60 logitech keyboard had only 8 months of life but nope it no longer functions and I did nothing wrong...
    Changed the batteries with fresh brand new ones, cleaned it out, checked the receiver, plugged the receiver in and out, and it was still dead.
    Ugh I swear this is the last I get from logitech, I have had it up to my neck in bad products from them.
    I know this sucks as a linux user to buy a microsoft product, but I have had better experiences with microsofts mice and keyboards.

    My $12 (USD) Logitech K120 USB keyboard is still rock solid, but a little dirty.

    Sorry for your problem.

    Hi
    I've got an older Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse (circa 2006), it
    was a rechargable mouse, but the charger died, so just manually charge
    them, it still works fine. I also have two Logitech unifying mouses
    which run fine as well, much easier to connect/use than the older
    versions. Plan on getting one of the unifying keyboards as well.

    If you want a quality keyboard that lasts forever, buy any Cherry G80-3000 variant, depending on your country and
    preferred style. The MX-Blue variant is Vim's perfect partner.

    The unifying mice are good, in terms of mice Logitech is still okay but if you are planning on buying a keyboard dont go logitech.

    I had a Logitech keyboard, ps2 cable type. A friend tumbled my glass of
    water over it, accidentally. I disassembled it, in order to try to dry
    out the innards (layers). Futile. Only the left hand side works, must of
    the keys on the right side fail.

    It worked, but it was not that good. The labels on many keys are worn
    out, meaning that only the surface was painted.

    Now I have a mechanical keyboard, Tt esports, by Thermaltake. Feels
    good, but some keys are getting fainter. I'm afraid it can also be paint.

    I also tried a Zalman gaming keyboard. Keys are retroilluminated with
    LEDs; but it turns out that the top keys do not get sufficient light,
    except if the room is very dark. If the room is well illuminated the top
    keys are quite difficult to read, because the whitish material that form
    the letters does not contrast well with the black material forming the
    background of the key. Otherwise it was a nice keyboard.


    For a mouse I have a Logitech Trackball. Actually, I have more than one,
    they are so good. Cable models.

    Forgive me if i am wrong but Isn't using all those wireless mice and
    keyboard with batteries(toxic) pretty bad for the environment. For me a
    PS2 device(mouse and keyboard) does the job well enough. ofcourse
    people's opinion differ.
