Ability to turn the light off.
The soft touch on the sides and on the buttons.
Optical mice react faster than laser mice.
Cons: Ambidextrous designs aren't good. For years I've been using mice designed for your right hand. I didn't realize how uncomfortable this would be for me. The issue I have is that my index finger hovers too high and I constantly feel that I'm forcing my hand to hover over the mouse. My finger started hurting an hour in and I got rid of the mouse.
The wheel has feedback (I've seen worse wheels for sure) but it's lackluster, and doesn't feel as good as my current mouse.
Front thumb button is too far forward (like all mice).
The light on it's lowest setting is still too bright, dwarfing the backlight on my keyboard.
The optical laser can be seen through the mouse when the light is turned off.
The feet are bad. I have a hard mouse pad with a grainy texture and my current mouse is quiet on it while this one makes a lot of noise. To the touch the feet on this are almost as hard as the mouse itself.
Other Thoughts: It's pretty heavy.
The cord is braided. I personally don't like them but most mice come that way now.
Pros: Key response is nice.
Cons: The backlighting is bad. The symbols on the lower half of the key get almost no light compared to the top.
The icons for the numlock and such at the top right are much brighter than the other keys. It looks really bad. -2 eggs.
Other Thoughts: It's even noisier than I thought it would be. Not taking an egg off since I bought the blue for the clicky sound, it's just more annoying than I thought it would be.
I didn't realize how much I would be annoyed by having to hold the func key in order to use the multimedia keys at the top. I use these keys every day and on my sidewinder x4 it's easy.
This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo Bundle (Blue Edition)
Pros: The obvious, price.
Keys are very quiet except space bar.
Cons: Neither the mouse or keyboard I received sits level. I've never had this problem with anything I've bought. This alone warrants 1 egg. I stuffed a paper towel under the top left of the keyboard but the mouse can't be fixed.
Restarting the computer turns the keyboard lights off.
Without the lights the keys are very dim and hard to read.
The prop feet under the keyboard don't have rubber tips.
The mouse wheel has almost no feedback and it's stiff to move.
The mouse design is awkward. It's symmetrical design means there's a sharp edge under the outside of your palm. Do yourself a favor, don't buy a symmetrical mouse if you are right handed.
As with most mice, the front thumb button is too far forward to be useful.
Other Thoughts: They decided to put glossy parts on the keyboard. Whoever thought putting fingerprint magnets on a keyboard needs their head checked.
The keys feel mushy, much more so compared to this x4 I'm typing on. This is something that some people will prefer and I personally don't mind the difference.
I bought this because I thought it was an unbeatable deal. I'm assuming this manufacturing defect is rare and I'm just unlucky.
My first assumption was that the desk was warped but the other keyboards and mice I've used don't wobble so, yeah.
Returning things for me is such an annoyance since I have to drive 40 minutes each way to get to a UPS store that I'm just going to keep it since my mom doesn't mind the mouse.
If I bought this for me I'd return it for sure.
