EpicGear is a new company to us here at ThinkComputers. You can guess by their name that they make gaming products. They make a wide variety of gaming keyboards, headsets, mice, and other accessories. Today we will be taking a look at one one of their more interesting bundles, which gives you their Defiant Gaming Keyboard and MMS Switch 24-pack all inside a carrying case, which they call the Assassin. The keyboard is a full mechanical keyboard with Epic Gear’s own MMS switches, full backlighting, and much more. The MMS Switch 24-pack allows us to try out new switches and mix and match switches on the keyboard itself. Let’s jump in and see if this is the bundle you are going to want to get for your next LAN party!
Special thanks to Epic Gear for providing us with the Defiant Keyboard and Assassin Case Bundle to review.
Packaging & What You Get
The keyboard came as a bundle as I mentioned so it comes inside of the Assassin Case. The Assassin Case is a hard case that has the Epic Gear logo on each side. What it really reminds me of is a gun case, maybe that’s why it is called the Assassin! The case seems to be very well made and has a handle at the top for easy carrying.
Opening the case up inside we can see that it is padded on both sides. This will help protect whatever hardware you have inside. Epic gear put the Defiant keyboard inside without a retail box or anything like that. The case lid has a webbed carrying pouch where you can put accessories. I can easily see you having your keyboard, mouse, mousepad, and even extra cables all in this one case.
Getting everything out of the case there is quite a lot! We have the Defiant Keyboard, MMS 24-pack of mechanical switches, pack of colored light bars, stands for the keyboard, rubber wrist rest, keycap and key switch puller, quick start guide, and a few Epic Gear stickers.
