I didn't know what to expect really as I didn't get this for gaming. I wanted something "cool" looking for my recording studio. For the price, I'm very happy with the product. Folks are complaining in the reviews that they cannot turn off the mouse, however there is a fix for that. If you get an on and off 3.0 switch hub you can simply add your mouse in there. Make sure the hub is 3.0 with the blue input with separate switches. My hub has individual switch per port which made it easy and direct when I lock my computer, all lights go off by clicking off the switches on the hub. Hope that helps. Highly recommend this keyboard and mouse.
