Pros: I got the Cherry MX Brown in "black" color with red LEDs. As a gamer who also does a ton of typing for work, I needed the best of both worlds. I can't think of a better keystroke the the Cherry MX brown for me. I've tried the MX red, and it feels too smooth. The Blue is too loud. The brown is smooth but your fingers know when you hit the key.
The LEDs are cool though I keep them off.
The tactile coating on the keys feels great under my fingers. Maybe as I "grease" the keys up over time that will change. for now feels amazing.
Sound knob is also A+. Great for gaming, 1ms response time.
Black brushed metal looks great.
Cons: Cable could be a little longer, I used to have a wireless keyboard and miss the flexibility, though it is still about 4-5 feet. Very thick cable, which is fine with me, but just something to keep an eye on.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Personally I like the design. The mouse feels good. Click is solid. It's not amazing, but what do you want?
The laser mouse is x100 better than optical. I am using this for an HTPC and being able to use the mouse right on the sofa is great.
Cons: Sometimes it is glitchy, and you have to play a guessing game with the keyboard to get it on.
"MCE" keys do not work with linux and (appear) not to be programmable. The Volume, pause/play do work right out the box with 11.04
Other Thoughts: When I first got this I was experiencing major lag in the mouse and keyboard, it was horrible. Follow IOGEAR's advice on these forums and either put the usb sensor on the front of the PC or just use the extension cable to let it sit facing the mouse. For me it went from almost annoyance unusable to almost flawless by just using the USB extenderREAD FULL REVIEW
