Today I was over my step brothers place, helping him fix his computer again. After a lot of cleaning up, I finally discovered the issue, then it blue screened; which confirmed my belief. We ended up going over to a local computer store (the only one left in the area for miles) called MicroCenter.
Recently, I have been struggling with my keyboard and mouse. The mouse hasn’t been tracking as well as I like, and the keyboard has not been keeping up with me as I type. My tweets, IMs and emails seemed to be missing letters and words a lot of as late. I found I had to press the keys harder in order to get the input.
So before we left the store, I decided to take a quick look at the keyboard selection. What I had before was this model: the Wireless Desktop Optical Elite and I ended up replacing it today with this model: the Wireless Laser Desktop 6000.
I made a quick comparison review on the difference between the keyboards and I discussed what I liked and didn’t like.
Below you can also see the pictures I took of the differences in size and shape.
Two points I didn’t mention in the video, that I think are worth noting. The old keyboard / mouse set was wireless (via RF) and the mouse was optical/infrared. The new keyboard / mouse set uses bluetooth and the mouse is optical/laser.
