Before this keyboard I had a cheap model by Logitech in use, which at least technically still works perfect – but during my work at the office I got used to more flat keyboards, whose tactile feeling I find considerable more comfortable.
The name “Gigaset” is associated with Siemens – this was the brand Siemens had used for a long time for their phones. However Gigaset became an independent company which produces phones and accessories under this name in license. Also see http://www.gigaset.de.
Beginning of 2011 I’ve purchased a Gigaset S790 as replacement for my old phone. This model is also available with an integrated answering machine as S795 or as ISDN version under the name SX790 or SX795.

In the beginning of 2010 I have searched for a better solution for my own data backup and eventually decided to use “RDX”.
RDX is the abbrevation for “removable disc exchange”. It is a system with very robust cartridges containing 2.5″ harddiscs. The system was already developed in 2004 by ProStor. Meanwhile drives and media are also offered by Tandberg Data, HP and Imation. These manufactures affiliated to the “rdx storage alliance”.
Since I often move between Augsburg and Berlin, I thought about getting a mobile computer for a while. But a laptop was too big – and with appropriate battery runtime of at least 4-5 hours also quite expensive. Therefore my choice was a “netbook” with 10.2″ display – the Samsung NC10.
Since my old keyboard does not work properly anymore, a replacement was neccessary. I’ve choosen a cheap model by Logitech – “Deluxe 250” – with PS/2 connection, which I use in the USB variant on a daily basis in the office. It also seems, Logitech favours this model as OEM stuff for hardware manufacturers – because officially you don’t find this keyboard on the Logitech homepage.
The LG GP08NU10 is an external CD/DVD recorder, which is only powered via USB and comes without a power adapter. Due to its compact size it is a good supplement for netbooks or compact laptops, which do not provide an optical drive.
This printer is not available anymore – it was replaced by the HL-2035, which is nearly identical regarding the technical data and can be used under Linux with the same driver. Since I already use this device for quite a while, I want to tell about my experiences with it here.
