This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard & Mouse Combo (Blue LED Model)
Pros: I read the reviews and was a little skeptical about this purchase. After unboxing it, and configuring Ubuntu to play nicely, I found my fears to be unwarranted. The keyboard is fairly nice despite being their "cheap" model. The mouse isn't too bad, even after being crazy in love with my old one. Neither of them have any "wow" factors to them, but I quite like them. I haven't had any issues with the scroll wheel as some people seem to have, but I haven't owned it more than a day or two. Will update if things go south.
Cons: No deal breakers for me, but some things to be aware of.
The mouse is a little large, but not overly so. It will definitely take some getting used to, though I won't have any trouble. I believe my hands are average size.
Mouse is not customizable. You are stuck with the two thumb buttons being back and forward. You may be able to pull some operating system tricks to pull this off, but nothing out of the box.
As others have stated, having the backlight bound to the scroll lock key was a terrible design choice, but I am not too put out about it. Getting it to work on Ubuntu took a little doing, but as someone else stated it is easy to google for the solution.
Also, trying to use the keyboard without the backlight is a chore as the letters are merely clear on black to let the backlight through. Though I usually don't look at it much while using it anyway, so this is not a deal breaker for me. Maybe after using it I will look down at it less?
The legs to tilt the keyboard are pretty low. If you like a tilted keyboard, then this might not be for you. Of course you can always prop it up with something. With the legs down, the thing practically tilts away from me. I am used to the flat keyboard on my laptop though, so I haven't felt the need to prop it up. This may drive some people crazy though.
Other Thoughts: The laser on the mouse is a cool blue color. It is also very dim and you CANNOT injure your eyes by looking into it... at least that is the case with mine. Not that you should really be trying that anyway *sheepish grin*
I give this 5 eggs for what it is for the price and as an "entry level" gaming mouse and keyboard. This mouse and keyboard CANNOT compare to those you would spend 50 or 100 dollars on, but for what it is, it does it's job well enough.
This review is from: Bundle Monster Synthetic Leather Textured Cover Case for Kindle Touch Dark Blue
Pros: Protects the device nicely and my wife loves it. I own a different one, but actually like this one better.
I like that two of the holding straps are non-elastic, which means they won't wear out as quickly.
Seems durable and looks decent.
Cons: None thus far.READ FULL REVIEW
