Cons: -Keys are quite chattery - (is that a thing?)
-The plastic does not feel very high quality
Other Thoughts: I bought this keyboard and mouse combo after my wireless keyboard (that came with my PC build bundle from newegg) finally crapped out. It suffered many long papers throughout my university career and me raging out while playing games and often losing. I needed something new, and this seemed like an affordable upgrade/replacement.
I really have no idea why the PC gaming world has decided to adopt really bizarre styling an imagery -- some attempt to make everything look like an alien spaceship, and then stamp them with over-aggressive and war-esque names like "Devestator". It's a darn keyboard and mouse. I can do without it looking like something that the Bat Mobile excreted from its rear end. That being said, this combo is not too obnoxious, but it definitely feels like it is leaning in that direction.
I've read a few reviews here that lament the fact that the switch to turn on the backlighting is also the scroll lock. Is this really an issue? Who actually uses scroll lock? Is this 1993? I have had no issue with using the scroll lock button as the on/off switch for the backlighting.
About the backlighting, I think that it is just the right amount of brightness. It doesn't glare or blind you, and it is nice to have the letters on the keys actually show through the backlighting as well. Believe it or not, some cheaper keyboards don't do this.
For gaming, this keyboard is great. There is a lot of key travel, and the feedback on the keys is nice. That being said, it is not actually the best for typing. If you're going to be writing a report or paper or something, you may find that it is a bit of pain to write long lengths on. It may just take some getting used to, but generally a more slim keyboard I find to be more favourable to typing out large amounts of text.
It is quite loud and chattery to type on. I have generally been a fan of slim keyboards, but I thought that since my home PC is transitioning to be more straight gaming rather than work/school, I could go with more of a gaming keyboard. It's good, but I think I would probably wake someone up in the next room if I were typing on it late at night. I would say it is on the borderline of unreasonably loud. This may be standard for this type of keyboard though, so take my thoughts here with a grain of salt.
Of the two devices, I think the mouse is probably the better bargain. It feels very nice, and it is quite long (in the event that you have large hands). The scroll wheel on it has a good amount of resistance, which is very nice.
Some people have described the plastic on these devices as "rubbery", or having a rubber coating. I have to disagree with this. It's just a matte plastic. It doesn't feel terribly durable, but it should be fine for most people.
This review is from: Mee audio M9 Classic In-Ear Headphone
Pros: I bought my first pair of MEE earbuds a few years ago on a whim. They were on sale, and I needed something new. Who would have thought that this lesser-known company would actually deliver. I find that the sound is excellent. I bought some JBL over ear headphones and they don't sound as good as my $20 MEE earbuds.
Cons: The first pair I bought had wires that were shaped like fettuccine. It kept them from tangling. These tend to get knotted easily, and I am not the type of person to carefully coil up earbud wires. I generally just throw them in my bag or coat pocket. I usually spend a minute or two having to untangle them.
Other Thoughts: If I were to break these, I would buy another pair.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RHTS-11004 - Circumaural Headphones - 3.5mm Connector
-Compact / Detachable cord
Cons: -Not the greatest build quality
-Design / headphones could be larger to fit "over ears"
-Poor noise cancellation
Other Thoughts: In addition to these headphones, I also bought a pair of MEE electronics earbuds that go into the ear, and around the same price point.
I have to say that it is questionable which would be the better one to use. The passive noise cancellation on these headphones is really not that great, as they don't fit over the ear. The low-end you would typically get from this design of headphone may be lost to the bleeding of ambient room-noise at the higher frequencies.
If you don't mind wearing them, I'd go with some high quality ear buds. They're more compact, (generally) harder to break and the sound quality is almost as good.
If you can't stand ear buds, or find them uncomfortable, this might be a better option. A lot of reviews on here have mentioned that these headphones are "very uncomfortable", but short of the fact that they don't sit completely over your ear, I don't notice any discomfort and I have a particularly large head.
If these are on for $9.99, or whatever, I'd go for them if you need to replace some similar style headphones. Otherwise, I think you'd be really surprised by some of the newer earbud designs.
