Conclusion and Thoughts

SunbeamTech tried to incorporate attractiveness and performance into a keyboard and mouse, but there were a few problems. The small mouse size is uncomfortable for users with big hands, as they constantly try to find a way to grasp the mouse. The inability to adjust the height for the keyboard, as well as the poor placement of the toggle application/close application keys, gave me an uncomfortable time while I was gaming and typing. Another bad idea was the use of the scroll key to illuminate the keyboard. I often find myself using the page up/down keys to scroll through a page or document, but if I wanted the keyboard to be illuminated, that would mean sacrificing those keys. If the keyboard and mouse brought me comfort and provided better key placements on the keyboard, I'd recommend this product without any hesitation. Try harder next time, SunbeamTech!

Pros:

  • Illumination when plugged into the computer
  • Many multimedia/office/internet navigation hot keys
  • No skipping or noticeable difference between mice

Cons:

  • Lack of height adjustment
  • Mouse size is too small
  • Poor placement of keys on keyboard
  • Cords could be too short for some users (approx. 4 feet in length)
