MasterKeys Lite L Combo with RGB

Subjective Testing

There’s only one way we know of to test a Keyboard Mouse combo and that’s turn to the gaming rig in the lab and spend some hours with it. In this case about 30 hours total gaming across a range of games. We are running on an Intel 6700K CPU on the Asus Maximus VIII motherboard with Kingston 3000MHz memory and our EVGA GTX 1070 FTW ACX 3.0 so we don’t anticipate system or video card lag being a factor in testing.

We ran through a large portion of gaming in SKYRIM, GTA 5, Far Cry Primal and Ashes of the Singularity and found the simulated mechanical feel of the keyboard to be passable but the key travel is a bit long compared to the uber expensive mechanical models. The 50 g actuation pressure didn’t cause fatigue during hours long gaming sessions but we needed a cheat sheet for on the fly adjustments to keyboard and mouse. With continued use the learning curve might be carved away slightly but we suggest setting the Keyboard to static (your fav color) and concentrating on the gaming and not adjusting the keyboard.

The mouse was feather light in our hands and traced across our rigid mouse mat easily as well as high quality mouse pad. Just for fun we threw out a flea market $1.00 mouse pad and the mouse traveled easily across it but a cheap mouse pad we couldn’t recommend. The mouse performed admirably but the mouse pads in the cheap range tend to eat away at the Teflon feet. The button clicks on the top two buttons are feather light and required some re-calibration on muscle memory and at times were to easy to click but that falls under learning curve not manufacturing flaw.

In all given the $59 price tag the MasterKeys Lite L Combo with RGB performed admirably but with room for improvement.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 – AMD and Nvidia in sweet harmony

For a long time the combination Intel/Nvidia was the norm for powerful gaming laptops.  AMD has tried to break in to the market but not had much success. The laptop I am looking at today, ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15, is another challenger to the old partnership. It comes with AMD:s latest mobile part, the Ryzen 7 4800HS combined with a Nvidia RTX2060 Max-Q, all packed into a nice slim laptop with a 15" 240 Hz 1080P IPS-screen.
