Are you serious? MS makes the second coolest keyboard in the world... the coolest, of course, is my Logitech Cordless MX , but after that the MS ones are pretty sweet. You have to admit, they make excellent input devices. Their software sucks but their hardware division has it down.

I'm a pretty big fan of their keyboards. Rugged and good looking. Their mice are decent if you have tiny girl hands, but if you have man hands... you'd might as well just go straight to Logitech.

I can understand. I originally bought the keyboard for my PC, but then I realized how nicer it is to type on than the Apple Keyboard. I've been using the natural style for almost 10 years and find I am faster on it than the typical keyboard layout. Aside from the MS keyboard lacking an Apple logo, it is the best keyboard I have ever used. The included software for Macs is well done.

I found that the MS software for the Mac is far superior than the software that came with my Logitech MX700 and elite keyboard, which were replaced by the MS Optical Desktop Pro. Also, what is up with the lag when adjusting the volume with the Logitech keyboard? My MS keyboard doesn't do that.

Yes, Microsoft's software is better than Logitech's because you can specify actions on a per-application basis. But I can live with the Logitech software.

What do you meant there is lag when adjusting volume? It seems fine to me. All I've noticed is that if you spin the wheel super fast, it doesn't adjust the volume any faster than if you spin it at a medium rate.

there IS lag when adjusting volume.. apparently this is fixed with more ram but I doubt it..

About the MS keyboard- yeah I dig the ergo style myself. I know addesso makes a really expensive split keyboard like that (and it's in clear/black or grey/black) -- but they're totally subjective.. I kinda want one but I heard they're not too great.

I've noticed lag as well, but that was with older, slower machines I've used. My PowerBook G3/233 did it and my iBook did it, but my PowerMac doesn't do it and my eMac never did either. Funny, the laptops were both G3s and the desktops were both G4s. My desktop adjusts its volume plenty fast all the time, and I rarely experience any slowdowns at all with it.

I haven't used an Adesso keyboard, but I did use an MS Natural Keyboard for a couple months. It was pretty good, but since it used PS/2 only and not USB, I had to kind of jury-rig everything into place. Got an adapter to use the keyboard on a USB port, and used uControl to swap the Alt and Windows keys (which translate to Option and Command, respectively). Volume adjustment worked, F12 to eject the CD worked, but none of the hotkeys worked and no software drivers were available. I am fine with the ergonomic form factor but the standard one is also just fine. The feel of the keys on this Logitech is amazing, better than either the MS or the Apple. That makes up for the lack of an ergonomic design.

Anyway, I'll get back on topic and post a picture of my setup in the PowerMac Pictures thread.

When you spin the wheel fast the sound dialog on your screen kinda lags behind.

I've got to ask the same thing has AE-35 Unit, what's the LCD model you're using?

I've been wainting to see the perfect match and this seems like it!

That is the Samsung 173T. It comes in black and silver. It's super bright compared to PB LCD, i had turn down the contrast and brightness by half. And i haven't calibrated it yet, it's too blue.

Here a pic from back home in Norway with a messed up desk, running twinview with my good old Eizo L565k-screen. Also shown is my very good old Psion Series 5.

Templetalker, is that a Panasonic MR230 or 250 that you have? I myself have the N/E10 combo, and an additional R909 recorder. I've always wondered how the Panasonic was, I really like the clean look of it.

Hey Azt33, Cool Man. The SJ-MR250 is truly sweeter then a bumble bee's booty! I picked it up passing through Tokyo on a trip up to Northern Japan. My only complaint is the amp for the mic produces a hiss at higher volumes. On the positive side however, it's so sweet for its size and I even left it out in the rain all night long and it works like new! (phew) Also, I haven't got a clue how to work the NET MD on Apples. Do you have any ideas? Peace : )

Templetalker, have a look here

You'll find that board a nice board if you are into MD. So the Panasonic is not only nice looking, but also durable! I think I need to think about getting one...

Also keep in mind that this is about 1/4 of my DVD collection and I still have about another 300 CDs back in my moms storage room (My old room )
