That USB vacuum we showed you last August pretty much sucked—in other words, one of our many astute commenters said it didn't suck enough, and couldn't pick up hardly any of those crumbs and various pieces of detritus and ejecta populating the area in and around his keyboard.

That USB vac was a $14 item, and now we bring you the USB Keyboard Vacuum, and it costs $9 less and sucks more, one way or another. You be the judge. Keep in mind that this one includes two attachments, a brush and a flexible rubber tip to get into those hard-to-reach places. Anybody tried this one?

DISCUSSION

I bought one of these at the Container Store (impulse buy) it's the *exact* same as the one pictured. First, it was only $4.99. Score!

However, it was DOA. *sigh*

Took it back, exchanged it, and took it home.

Plugged the second one in and it fired up. That's about all it does. It blows chunks. It doesn't generate enough suction to sweep up anything unless the nozzle is directly pressed up against it, and the nozzles are too big to really get in between keys.

Yeah, it's only $5-10, but it's a complete waste of $5-10. You'd have better results licking your keyboard clean.
