The keyboard features Rainbow colour backlighting which is excellent if you have an RGB PC to correspond with the set-up. The Keyboard also features Gaming grade membrane switches which make key presses smooth and recognizable, this also helps with more accurate key presses. Anti-ghosting technology is also imbedded in this keyboard with a 24-key rollover meaning no latency between the keyboard and the PC. The keyboard is a full keyboard with Windows lock (FN+F11 is the full keyboard lock/unlock) (FN+Windows key is the windows lock). The mouse that comes with the keyboard features a gaming grade optical sensor with a sensitivity of up to 2400dpi (blue-800dpi / pink-1200dpi / red-1600dpi / purple-2400dpi) with a fixed pulse lighting effect for added ambience. The mouse also has 6 ergonomic buttons, durable enough to hold out for 10 million clicks, which also feature gaming grade switches.
The scroll wheel has a very nice grip to it which make scrolling that much easier, the mouse itself is very ergonomic and very comfortable to hold with nice glide feet so I didn’t find myself to be sliding everywhere. I was very precise and it wasn’t at all difficult. the scroll wheel gives a nice slow turn while I found my little finger to grind on the mat but it’s not much of a complaint. the keyboard has anti ghosting which is a very nice touch, comfortable to type on especially with the mouse pad, almost no flex (a very sturdy keyboard).

Lastly and most importantly the RGB looks fantastic on the keyboard.
Both the mouse and the keyboard have very nice lighting effects.

Overall the gameplay felt really nice and clean for both of the products (very accurate) and the keyboard is a little bit on the louder side but I personally am a fan of that. I played at 800dpi and found my experience to be very enjoyable.
This is definitely worth buying if you’re looking for a mouse and keyboard combo and I would recommend this 100% for a budget build.
