Pros: Great color out of box, pretty slim but stable base.
Cons: Monitor takes a little longer to turn on than I'm used to, nothing too annoying, especially if you never turn off your monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -High quality mechanical keys
-Has no number pad
Cons: -Has no number pad
Other Thoughts: This is my first mechanical keyboard. I've had it for about 6 months and I absolutely love it. The keyboard is heavy and feels substantial so it doesn't slide around when you use it. I'm a programmer and Cherry Blue switches are amazing for typing other than when they wake up my wife..
I list the lack of a number pad as a positive and negative because I love it and hate it at the same time. It's actually very convenient to have that extra space when gaming and I don't notice its absence when I'm doing most work. However I recently switched from 3ds max to blender and the lack of a number pad is fairly crippling.
For most purposes though, this is a great deal on a great keyboard. I would recommend it to anyone thinking of buying their first mechanical keyboard.
Pros: On the fly adjustable DPI
Works well without a mouse pad
Included Logitech Setpoint software is robust
Cons: Braided cord is nice but sometimes gets caught on the edge of the desk
The skin makes the mouse look a little dirty/used
Other Thoughts: This is my first quality mouse and I have to say it's totally worth the price. Getting used to higher DPI took about a day of use. The software included with this mouse is very easy to use and allows a lot of customization. I guess the real theme of this mouse is the ability to make it as good or bad for you as you want.
Functionally I love everything about this mouse and my only concerns are on the cosmetic side. The braided cord is nice, but on my cheap walmart desk it will occasionally snag on the back edge, usually only with very long mouse motions. Also, I'm not a huge fan of the "smudged" look on the mouse skin. It makes it look like I've owned it for a year when I haven't.
Overall I would definitely recommend this mouse to anyone looking to upgrade from a standard cheap mouse especially if you can find it on sale.
