Checking this new keyboard. I don't like it as much as the keys are not what you would expect them to be. In addition to that, they're quite soft so they don't provide the tactile bump up feel that a fully mechanical keyboard would provide you. And also I haven't figured out how to turn on the backlight on it. Indeed, without the backlight, it's almost impossible to see the letters.
The keys themselves are slippery too. I've read in a few forums that they are overed with some non-slippery material – it is not the case at all.
I haven't figured out how to turn the backlight on still. I watched a few YouTube videos and they are always pushing a function button and then F1 or F2 or other buttons. Unfortunately, there is no such thing here on this keyboard, it's a menu button instead of a function button :-(
As to the “gaming” mouse, it's a good size, it fits the hand nciely, buttons are nice and large. Some complained that they were hard to press – I disagree, they are just the right firmness / softness combination. The scrolling wheel on the other hand is on the harder side.
Get an old used clicky-clicky mechanical keyboard for $5-10 instead. They were super reliable and still are in service to this day.
Those old keyboards are now rebranded as "gaming keyboards" but back in the 80s and 90s, they were on the desk with every single computer LOL :-)
