{ SmartPower SP-450 } + Sonata II

What are SPCR members experience on SP-450?

I was considering getting NSK2400( NSK2450B!?) but Sonata II /w 50 rebate seems quite a bargain. Unfortunately, it comes with SP-450 which seems to not last a year.

I'd like to hear from SP-450 users.

BL(backlight) keyboard noise

I have an EL(electroluminescence) BL keyboard(Zippy EL-620). Unfortunately it whines when BL is on :evil:. Do all EL keyboard whine? Also I've been eyeing Saitek Eclipse keyboard.

I have a cyberpower 750 surge supressor that whines intermittently near threshold level. The strip has been used 2-3 years, but only noticed it now because it was hooked up to noisy SFF dell till now.

Also my compact EL(blue glow) keyboard(Zippy EL-620) buzzes(2-5kHz) when on :(

Best bet would be finding something cheap on ebay. Attach a mini keyboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823128020 . A miniature option would be attaching a portable keyboard (e.g. http://www.targus.com/us/product_details.asp?sku=PA870U ) to a PDA(quality of keyboard is an iss...

IMO, most corporate careers have the same fate. I came to the conclusion some years ago that I am utterly unemployable in the corporate context. ditto :wink: Wish I had realized that before getting a BSEE. In reply to Aris, I was similar WRT things you liked and education. I worked in a huge comput...
