Usage & Testing
The keyboard and mouse both are completely plug and play so just plug them into open USB ports on your system and you are good to go. Windows with automatically install the drivers and there is no software or anything like that.
One plugged in you will notice both the keyboard and mouse will light up blue, which gives a pretty cool effect. The LEDs on the mouse cannot be controlled, but you can adjust the lights on the keyboard. There are four different illumination levels and you can turn the illumination completely off if you want.
I have been using the Commander combo for a couple of weeks now using it as my main keyboard and mouse for gaming. The first thing that I really noticed about the keyboard is that the keys feel much more like mechanical switches than keys on a membrane keyboard. While they obviously are not of the same quality and do not have the same touch and audible feedback they were pretty good for all-around gaming. The over-sized spacebar was actually quite helpful in FPS games.
The included mouse does a pretty good job as well. While you do not have an overabundance of buttons it does get the job done. If you are playing games where you really only need a few buttons the Commander mouse is just fine. The optical sensor does track pretty well and I did not experience any issues really. The grip on the mouse is good and it is still comfortable after hours of gaming.
