I reviewed few mechanical keyboards and mouse not-t00-long ago. A lot of people love mechanical keyboards as soon as they were able to get used to it, especially those who have been using membrane keyboards for a very long time. After ditching dual sensors long time ago, CM mouse lineups were also being loved by a lot of gamers, especially the fact that they’ve made a very good mouse specifically for those who claw grip- CM Spawn and CM Xornet. CM Recon also made a pretty good impression.
There’s also the need of having cheap keyboards and mouse as well. While membrane keyboards even with basic multimedia keys do end up being a good choice for PC gamers with a restricted budget, in most cases they end up having a need for backlit as well. Microsoft did have a Sidewinder keyboards catering to this not-so-small amount of users, but then it sold way too quickly than one would imagine. For gaming, getting a mouse within a restricted budget is not an easy task.
That’s where the combo has its usefulness. To my knowledge Razer had a keyboard-mouse gaming combo for a brief moment, though I am uncertain if they had backlit on the keyboards, or how good or bad they were.
In any case, Coolermaster did the right thing by having a gaming gear combo catering to this specific budget restriction and basic requirement. While one would imagine that combo kits like this would be an instant bestseller I think there’s no harm in checking out how good this combo really is!
