    My review of the Logitech MK270 ::

    Just testing out/reviewing a new keyboard and mouse for the workstation. Overall, I really like it at first glance while eyeing it in the school store. It has a standard QWERTY layout and a numpad, which should make it a decent option for most users (at least at first glance). It also has height-adjustment, and the key switches are pretty quiet, which is perfect for most office/professional settings.The sprinkling of media keys at the very top is a nice plus, and add some decent functionality. And, to top it all off, this entire set is wireless - which gets rid of cable management nightmares for beginners (although you will have batteries to replace every so often - not rechargeable unless you buy those yourself). That won't be much of an issue, though, seeing that many people have already gotten past that, and it's still a nice benefit to be able to use the peripherals at any distance you want on the desk  But, the keys are kinda mushy, and the mouse is smaller than one would hope. Even ignoring the mouse (which is otherwise okay for short-term use) it's still a bit difficult to get typing fast on this thing, and that's definitely not due to the key layout. The true gripe is pertaining to the key switches used, which is why I was so disappointed. As a result of the design decisions made, it's also difficult to type accurately without looking down at the darned thing half the time, because I can't be sure which key(s) I'm (accidentally) hitting. Even when I do start to get up to speed, I have to look down every so often. It's just frustrating. It's not that it's a bad keyboard, either. It's a decent keyboard with deal-breaking decisions made in its design, which is why I am so disappointed. Due to the key switches, I'm more tempted to simply toss out the keyboard and keep the mouse, which pains me - since it ruins the economic value of the (already overpriced) set. The bad part is, aside from the new media keys, this layout is almost identical to my primary keyboard (on the Xeon workstation). It truly does come down to the key switches in this case  Got it for ~40 USD at the school store. It's a 6/10 in my book due to these shortcomings. Otherwise, this would have been a great option for PC builders on a budget who need affordable peripherals, but can't go full mechanical. Perhaps I will be able to find a better version of this set elsewhere...

    EDIT :: The final nail in the coffin was found when I discovered that it doesn't even use Logitech's Unifying Receiver technology, making it a discount Bluetooth device (but proprietary and incompatible with other unified Logitech products). Thus, the rating has been reduced by one point more - 5/10.

    imagine a whole nations road transport vehicles equipped with a modified AI tech which communicates with each other makes intelligent real-time live decisions to avoid collisions & divert traffic . there would be zero bumper to bumper collisions in a huge dramatic scale since it wont rely on human reaction time to make decisions when to stop or divert away ,  vehicles would always stand apart like similar poles of a magnet trying to meet. it just wont happen. everybody wins. except insurance companies.

    Intel shortage seems quite real, on Brazilian retailers the Ryzen 7 1800X is actually selling cheaper than the i5 8400, quite remarkable.

    The Ryzen 7 2700 is priced identically to the left overs of the i5 7600K.
     
    Gee... It is unquestionable where value lays at even when you still rather have Intel under the hood.

    While at a budget meeting? Are you crying because you’re happy or sad?
