So here we take a look at the ACGam Mechanical Chrome Keyboard and a hard mouse mat with Chroma lighting.
Let’s start with the Keyboard, I think first it’s better to check the video review here, from unboxing to testing:
If you want a quick overview of the keyboard, then here are the key features.
Fully Programmable (single keys, macros and each key lighting)
Has really awesome looks (black, with chrome trim / edge)
Has lot of lighting effects (about 40 or so, via software only)
Blue switches (clicky – good feedback for typers)
Has windows key lock (or you can disable the key completely via software)
Numlock, CAPS lock, Scroll lock and Win lock LED colors are all different (red, green, blue, pink)
Each button can have 2 lighting effects (1 color when key is up and other color when you press the button)
It’s perfect for typists, but will do fine for gaming too. Personally I don’t like clicky keys for gaming as they get into microphone and you can hear them through headset, but if you’re not bothered by the clicky sounds, then it’s perfectly fine for gaming.
Now let’s take a look at the ACGam gaming mouse mat. As usual, here’s a video review for those who want to see it in detail
So this mouse mat is amazin, because:
It’s quite huge 350x250mm
Hard material (you can’t bend it, so it’s suitable for un-even or soft surfaces)
Anti-slip padding underneath
LED lighting around edges and on logo
Touch sensitive button on top (changes through 7 colors and 2 effects)
Powered via USB (you can use PC or USB power adapter)
Very simple mouse mat, but it makes your PC setup look so much better, it’s suitable for office or gaming. By using the button on top, you can change the colors (only 7 color options) and also 2 chroma effects, where it flashes through the different colors (so called chroma)
Personally I don’t like the smooth surface of the mouse mat as it makes my mouse too sensitive / twitchy. When i try taking precise shots in games, mouse often twitches a bit, but it’s matter of preference. I’m used to the mouse mats that use soft surface, so that mouse won’t slide that well on it.
However this mouse mat is still cool.
3 Different companies, 3 different mechanical keyboard, but which one is the best? What are the differences, pros and cons?
We have the following keyboard:
EasySMX Mechanical Keyboard
Aukey KM-G3 Mechanical Keyboard
Reidea KM06 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
So here we have 3 review videos and basic key featuers brought out for you, in case you don’t feel like watching all the videos.
This keyboard is meant for typing, but works also for gamers.
It uses blue switches, they’re loud, but give you good feedback, which is great if you’re typist.
– Fully programmable (all buttons can be programmed)
– LED colors are fully customizable (each key can be different color)
– Epic LED effects (such as matrix code style coloring)
– Comes with software (needed for advanced programming of keyboard, colors, functions..etc)
– Macro support (you can program macros onto keys)
– numlock / scroll lock / caps lock LEDs are too bright, they sting in your eye really bad, I had to put a sticker over them to dampen the effects. It really is BAD, it’s blinding you when gaming.
So which one is the best of them all? Well this is the whole idea of this post, they’re all different. If you’re a gamer, then Reidea KM06 is the way to go, it has lot of cool features, such as programmable keys.
All of these keyboards meet the basic gamer needs, such as “win key lock” and “anti ghosting”.
If you’re a gamer, then I strongly recommend the Reidea keyboard, but if you’re working in office or home on a job that requires you to type a lot, then EasySMX keyboard is way to go for sure, it’s cheapest of them all and palm rest makes it better for you to type. However if you do little bit of both, if you’re just a casual computer user, then I recommend the Aukey’s keyboard. It has the functions such as backlight customization, which is important in gaming, as sometimes wrong colors can reflect off the monitor or well, most gamers just want their keyboard to look awesome and fit with their setup. Aukey keyboard can do just that + blue switches makes it really cool to type on, they’re just bit too loud if you’re a gamer, they will get into your microphone and you can hear them through your headset, so it’s suitable for casual gamers only.
We have a Asus gaming keyboard to poke at ASUS Cerberus Led Backlit Gaming Keyboard.
There’s no video review about it at this moment.
Full SECC metal plate – Rugged durability
Splash-proof design with drain hole – Protects against spilled liquids
12 macro keys ( More about that later)
Fully rubberized feet – Enhanced friction for strong movements
No software (all modifications reset upon disconnect)
Learning curve to use the keyboard to its full potential
What does the keyboard package contain:
Bag of candy ( yes.. good ol gummy bears! don’t expect to get em tho )
If you really want to have a keyboard with simple macro usage Don’t buy this one
Because you will be very disappointed and annoyed by it all over prolonged time!
If you just want a keyboard that’s nice to use without actual need for macros this is really nice keyboard for you then.
