Good Budget Combo (2 months use)

 

I think the keyboard works really well (for a membrane keyboard) and if you don't want to drop $100+ on a mechanical one this would be my first choice. The mouse is a little worse but overall gets the job done better than a standard office mouse will....

Keyboard: I really like the keyboard. It has quite a bit more feedback and a better feel than your standard office keyboard. The lighting is very vibrant as well. As for the build quality of the keyboard, it's all just cheap plastic but I've had no...

Keyboard: None really ; Mouse: The mouse wheel squeaked for a few weeks after I bought it and just auto-resolved itself but it was very annoying. The Blue lighting on the back of the mouse died after only a few days of use. The mouse is also very odd...

great deal for the money

 

imho, the mouse itself is worth the price tag of this combo. the keyboard is unusable in a work setting because you need scroll lock turned off in ms office applications (moving around cells in excel with the arrow keys for example). with the lights...

cheap backlit keyboard. the mouse is great and looks nice

scroll lock has to stay on for backlight to work. you cannot see the lettering on the keys if the backlight is off

I would definitely recommend this keyboard and mouse bundle. For the price, this is about the best keyboard, though it won't last forever, it is ideal for starters

Keyboard ; This is a beautiful keyboard with buttons dedicated to volume and music. It is back lit which really helps out in my opinion. The keys make a good sound not the mechanical gaming keyboard sound but close to it. It has a number pad. I like it...

Keyboard ; The space bar makes a weird sound ; Mouse ; Only goes up to 2000 DPI

Great Value

 

If the problem keeps happening I may replace my mouse, and the awesome 2 year warranty allows me to do that.

Very comfortable design, and the keyboard is bright but still easy on your eyes. The keys feel solid, nothing feels cheap or flimsy and cleaning is a breeze. As an avid gamer, the Keyboard and Mouse held up despite countless hours every day being in use

Just like other reviewers my mouse began to have a slight jitter when scrolling down a page. A swab of Isopropyl Alcohol seemed to alleviate, if not eliminate the problem for a extended amount of time.I don't think its a faulty design, just the design...

Best keyboard for the price.. with a good mouse!

 

If you wanted a comfortable keyboard that types really well and with media keys then this is the one in this price range. It comes with a mouse that is actually really decent with a back and forward button on the side(my favorite mouse configuration)....

Backlit, can turn off ; Nice Matte finish on most of keyboard ; Not too edgy of a design, just right for me ; Dedicated media controls are a HUGE plus for any keyboard, especially for such a low price

Backlight turns off from the scroll lock button. Which, honestly isn't a real issue. Just something you should know. I don't know if anyone really wants it off but a rare few ; Not mechanical, but it's a really low price and feels pretty close to a...

Pretty awesome for the price.

 

As far as "responsiveness" and other things people look for in gaming keyboards/mice, I have to say I really haven't noticed any difference between these and my previous setup. There also aren't any extra programmable keys. I didn't put this as a pro...

Bright enough to see in the dark, which was 99% what I was looking for in a new keyboard. Mission accomplished ; Couple of extra mouse buttons that you may or may not have use for ; Overall, simple equipment for a good price

Scroll Lock is the "turn the LEDs on/off" key, so if you want the lights on while you're using a program where Scroll Lock does something, you're gonna have a bad time ; Mouse wheel seems to squeak intermittently

Great Keyboard For The Price

 

Its a great combo, and for the price its even better. Generic wired keyboard and mouse combos come at this price, plus this keyboard has leds. The cord is a good length also
