Pros: This keyboard mouse combo is great value for the money, and if it weren't for the mouse having typical "cheap wireless mouse" problems it would be a perfect package.
The keyboards shipped relatively slowly from China, but that was to be expected. They arrived in perfect condition and were packaged well. I bought two of different colors, and wanted to test to see if two combo's on PC's side-by-side would interfere with one another: And they DO NOT interfere. They both work flawlessly side-by-side.
Both the white and black look wonderful and were just as pictured. the small USB receiver fits inside the bottom of the mouse for easy transport/ storage. The media keys on the keyboard worked perfectly with Windows 8.1 and iTunes and install was plug and play. There is not a "skip song" or "forward" button which I would have liked, but there is mute, Vol+ and Vol-, a Home key for web browsing, a mail key, a calc key, and a power button for your PC.
Keyboard feels very typical for a membrane keyboard and I was comfortably able to type 85WPM with great accuracy on typeracer. The keys are a "half height" key that has become common on Logitech, Razer, and Microsoft membrane keyboards, so they are familiar and I think they are very comfortable and type well. (Albeit not near as crisp as a mechanical keyboard)
Both mouse and keyboard work up to about 15ft, I noticed some jittering at 20ft in the mouse movement.
Forward and back buttons work well, the mouse wheel has decently well defined "clicks" (not a smooth wheel). No left and right tilt on the center mouse wheel. Downclicking the center mouse wheel is comfortable and precise and has a nice audible click when pressed. Other than the light weight of the mouse, the quality seems really good for the money.
Cons: Requires two AAA batteries for the keyboard, and two more for the mouse. The mouse has two DPI setting, LOW and HIGH (no indicator for what mode you're in, you can tell by the mouse movement.)
On the low setting I experienced terrible mouse jitter on my desk surface and on my Steel Series mouse pad. I tried a Razer Vespula mouse pad and it was FAR better. The low DPI setting REALLY needs a high quality mouse surface to get any accuracy.
When on the HIGH DPI setting most mouse surfaces are fine, and you can increase the sensitivity of the mouse higher, which I liked. I am sure the high DPI setting will drain the batteries more quickly.
The mouse and keyboard will "sleep" after non-use of about 5 seconds. The lights on the keyboard indicating Num Lock or Caps Lock will go off as well, and has tricked me a few times as a result.
Sometimes the mouse is difficult to wake back up, scrolling the mouse wheel seems to be the most effective way. During constant use, this is not a problem.
Other Thoughts: I would NOT recommend this setup as a primary gaming setup, purely because of the mouse having poor accuracy and a "wake-up" problem that could ruin a good shot during a game. I think this would be a great backup/loaner setup, or a good LAN setup because of its light weight (and no wires!). FPS players will hate the mouse, RTS players might not even notice.
PS- I typed this review using the keyboard. Reminds me of a Logitech membrane keyboard that looks nearly identical...somehow I don't think it's a coincidence.
Pros: Runs fast, runs cool, runs quiet
Cons: Price? (Like all SSD's)
Other Thoughts: I run a Minecraft Server on this thing (which is known for its constant Hard Drive usage) and the drive is still going strong 6 months later. Really happy with the performance increase.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works, Affordable, Fast, Slim, Low Profile, Nice Heatsink
Other Thoughts: It works great and runs cool. Super slim and low-profile so I'm sure it'd fit in most builds with space constraints. Really happy with this purchase. I'm not a G Skill fanboy but all the RAM I've bought from them has been really good.READ FULL REVIEW
