I wanted to love this
Reviewed in Canada on February 12, 2020
I needed a new keyboard for an older gaming PC and was looking around for a decent inexpensive set. My research led me here. While I didn't need a mouse necessarily, I figured buying this combo would be a great way to renew that side of things as well. First impressions were great, I loved the look and feel of the keyboard (amazing) and the RGB colors and effects were top notch. The mouse also has very nice lighting and has a decent optical sensor. Unfortunately, I soon discovered that the left Shift key was only working about 60% of the time out of the box but did seem to resolve itself for a while and was working 100% for a short time. After that, I noticed that it once again was occasionally not acknowledging being pressed. This was especially noticeable when playing pinball games where the Shift keys act as the flippers or first person shooters where the Shift key is used to toggle between walk and run. The mouse, while responsive and mostly comfortable in the hand, is quite heavy for my tastes and was cumbersome to move around and subtracted from my performance in first person shooters. I think the bottom could maybe be a bit more smooth too. Also when you would move the scroll wheel up, it felt a little clunky (although moving it down felt perfect). Sadly, in the end, I wanted to love this combo but am returning it and going back to the drawing board. I think I will just get a mechanical keyboard by itself and re-use the old mouse. I will keep my eyes on Havit however, this experience at least shows great promise.
