Top critical review
Only suitable for WASD gamers
31 August 2018
(Note: I'm a hardcore gamer, not a casual gamer, so these points, though they seem silly, are very important for my gaming).
I have these primary problems:
1. Key rollover doesn't work for Numpad keys. When I press Up-Arrow, Left-Arrow and Numpad-0 keys simultaneously, the Numpad-0 functionality doesn't work. This is a deal-breaker for gamers who don't use WASD, and still use the old Arrow keys for movement. Come on RedGear, even the basic Logitech K270 keyboard handles this properly, even though that is not a gaming keyboard.
2. The Numpad/Caps Lock/Windows Lock lights are ridiculously bright, and for some reason are angled to hit you directly under your eyes. Why?? There is a white coating on that LED cover, facing away from the user, covering the LED up completely would have been much easier on the eyes.
3. The keys are raised far too high. Again, probably a problem only for the Arrrow-key users, you will by mistake press the Ledt-Arrow while pressing the Up-Arrow.
The mouse is uncomfortable (maybe it's just me), my hand is hurting, something that many other mice have not done.
The headphone (as others have mentioned) isn't great at bass, but if I increase the volume to double the usual level I set it to, it seems fine. The over-head band however, is way too tight (there are two bands, the lower band is the problem). I had a headache the first day I used it, seems to be getting better the more my head is getting used to it.
I really wanted to like this product, given the good ratings, but sadly, some of us will be better off using a basic Logitech keyboard/mouse, rather than this supposedly 'gaming' gear. The fact that this is a budget gaming gear is very evident.
To make matters worse, apparently, I can't return this, I can only get this exchanged. That's 2.5k gone down the drain.
