Some of the reviews (at Jeffs store) suggested that it’s a bit rubbish with Teams.
Yeah, what's up with that?

I have an external USB microphone that works wonders for all meetings, trainings and webinars (Zoom, GTM, Webex, Slack,...). I do recordings with it as well... no issue whatsoever.

But half the time I have to join a Teams meeting it seemingly doesn't work properly. People can't understand me or I'm too silent... only half of the time. I'm then forced to switch to my headset.
Most devices are certified for one of the other, MS or UC. I imagine they have to be slightly different

Just buy a nice Corsair K70 RGB - and have the RGB set to 'explode' on key presses!

Need to fit your pictures to the screen to avoid those vertical black bars...and you need to put some little desiccant crystals under John's feet to make it look realistic wink

I was thinking that but I've read reviews from people who've had the K70 for a while and they report it flexes and a few other issues. Or it may just be the people reporting this are few and far between. Correct for the black bars, I use a 1440 monitor at home, must update my wallpaper slides.

Nice spot on Mr McClane though!

I've had a K68 for a year now and can't report anything like that - it replaced an IBM Model M, which was one of the apocalypse proof models from the 80's, so any poor construction would be noticeable - no issues for me at all.

I've had a K70 for a few years (bought used) and it doesn't flex. It's partially metal so I don't see how it could under normal use...

Echo show 5 from the look of it; I've one in white on my desk. Mainly to look at the camera for the front door when the doorbell goes.

I was wondering what the headphone amp/DAC was....

Found myself standing a lot during the day so built a custom standing desk.





Bought the frame from Amazon and an kitchen island Walnut butcher block. It’s 6ft by 39”. (The monitors are 34” ultrawides to give scale.

I added cable management and power sockets as well. Very please with the result.

I’m in my 3rd K95, I currently have 2, one with cherry and one with brown. All of them have suffered key chatter. In doing some research, it appears to be Logitech that suffers key chatter. As per the post above, I have just changed my desk and the feel of the keyboard has been transformed. I’m going to give it some time to see if that also resolved the chatter.

That looks exceptional. We're doing a garden office build and my plan is to build something very similar for that (2m X 75cm)

it's a Focusrite Solo USB Audio Interface. Drives my speakers and also gives me some inputs if I want to record any instruments, voice etc...

Ta. Overkill for what I need, but looks good value!
