TWO STARS - Really? Yes: Here's Why!
on 7 April 2015
Besides being DOA, here's what's wrong with this keyboard and why - if you're going to keep your next keyboard for a couple of years - you'll want to invest in something better.
First of all, the key lasering/printing is dark. Meaning that daytime use leaves you with barely visible lettering regardless of brightness setting - it's dark with no backlight, and STILL dark with full backlighting. If you know exactly where your keys are, or if you only play in a VERY dark room after the kids have gone to bed then you MIGHT be okay - but there are keyboards out there that do illumination/colouring SO MUCH BETTER.
The cables are an okay length but could be longer. If your rig is a fair distance away from your and you want to connect via USB 3.0 (and thus can't reroute through (most) monitors, then this might be a dealbreaker.
The mouse is actually decent in some ways. Lighting is fun, grip is decent, and the scrollwheel click is tuned nicely - meaning you can hit it with the pad of your finger and it'll depress as expected.
Mine didn't work so has gone back the same day - but apart from that (which is obviously bad luck) I still wouldn't recommend the set, even for £16. Yes, if you're on a super tight budget or you get through keyboards as often as Blizzard buffs mages, then fine - maybe as a backup. But there's a reason this set is £16. It just lacks something. Put the money towards something with a better track record and look after it.
