I bought this keyboard and mouse combo for my Sister who doesn't like wireless keyboards and mice because of the trouble they can cause. I am delighted with this set especially in view of the price. You get a really good quality keyboard and mouse in this Microsoft pack. Both products install very easily together with some really useful software that gives you considerable control over both the keyboard and mouse. The keyboard has a positive, tactile feel as well as a number of customised keys that work with Windows 7 - one of the advantages of this being Microsoft's own hardware. The keyboard also works without any of the lag that I've experienced with wireless keyboards.
This is just what I wanted. I've been buying £50-£80 mechanical keyboards. I've had to return some, but this keyboard is a keeper. Compare to my current Cherry Black, responsive touch and that old click sound. This one also have fancy Leds. That's so great, but I rarely look at my keyboard anyway when I'm typing. The Aukey Keyboard has a good weight to it and it is really solid on the desk, no movement at all.
With the thermal paste applied, the brackets oriented and screwed in correctly, and the cooler attached, we went about the rest of the build with ease. Slotting in the graphics card is one of the simplest steps, despite its importance, and connecting cables is a somewhat tedious but straightforward process. (Consult your motherboard manual if need be.) The case was helpful for cable management, generally speaking, with an interesting hinged flap in the back, behind the right side panel, for hiding and holding the bulk of the cables in place. All told, we found enough hidey-holes and pass-throughs to tunnel most of the cables and stash around back before plugging everything in.
Professional teams do often have a gear sponsor. In most cases the players can still use their own personal mouse choice when competing though. There’s still cases of players being forced to use sponsor gear (even if they don’t feel comfortable with the mouse shapes the sponsor has to offer, for example) but we feel these cases are becoming increasingly rare. When we analyze a professional we will always consider the gear they actually use for competing instead of the gear that they’re paid to advertise.
