Some weird function key choices

The Logitech MX Mechanical keyboard has me nervous that the company has incepted me and sees what I dream about: the MX Keys but with mechanical switches.

That's right — all the peak convenience and productivity of the chiclet-style MX Keys, but with the tactile response of mechanical switches. Logitech nails the essentials with awesomely tactile switches and long battery life, alongside taking this chance to address problems with the original MX Keys such as adding an adjustable tilt. Though, power users may lament the weird function key choices like an emoji key.

Combine this with the Logitech MX Master 3S, however, and you've got a belter of a keyboard and mouse combo. Once again, Logitech sits atop the throne of productivity mice with the MX Master 3S. For right-handed people, this is an incredible mouse for getting things done with a fantastic ergonomic shape and a comprehensive software suite for maximizing usability. Plus, with quieter switches and an improved sensor, you have the versatility to work on big projects and tiny details alike.

Limited customization

The MSI Vigor GK30’s floating keycaps design looks great when paired with its six zones of RGB, but there’s more to MSI’s wired gaming keyboard than flashy lights. The board is pretty sturdy with plenty of grip along its base, combined with a weight of over two pounds and you won’t have to worry about accidental travel during gaming sessions. The GK30 uses three-part, mechanical-like plunger switches for a crisp typing experience, with each key having a 12 million+ keystroke lifespan. MSI’s keyboard also features 6-key rollover and 20-key anti-ghosting tech to avoid any unwanted key presses during gaming sessions. It’s not the best keyboard you can own, but it is a fantastic budget offering.

The bundled MSI GM11 wired mouse is a great budget option featuring subtle RGB lighting around its base and a six-button layout of Omron switches with a 10 million+ click lifespan. In terms of performance, the GM11 makes use of a Pixart optical sensor capable of resolutions up to 5,000 DPI and a polling rate of 1,000Hz. All in all, the combined might of the GK30 and the GM11 makes for a solid entry-level gaming peripheral bundle that’s more than worth its budget price tag.

If you’re working for long stretches of time, above all else, comfort is key. While it might look like it was designed by M.C. Escher, Microsoft’s ergonomic keyboard is built from the ground up with comfort in mind. Reverse tilt angles promote straight and neutral wrist positions, a natural arc throughout the split keyset design mimics the curved shape of the fingertips and there’s ample wrist support thanks to a sizable palm rest. It may take some getting used to, but there’s no doubt that the reduction in stress and fatigue on your joints will make it all worthwhile.

The included ergonomic mouse is similarly targeting user comfort, designed with the ideal height and pitch in mind to reduce pressure on problematic carpal tunnel areas by promoting natural hand and wrist postures. It features seven buttons, one of which is a customizable Windows button that can be set to offer quick and easy access to the Start menu or Cortana. Microsoft’s ergonomic mouse might look a little odd, but everything about it is designed to provide the user with the best ergonomic experience possible. To that end, it succeeds — capping off the Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop bundle nicely.

The Ghost A1 Keyboard is a must-have if you’re a minimalist at heart. Its 60% size strips away the function, navigation and numeric keys to put the Cherry MX-powered (Red, brown and blue switches are available) main keyboard on show, and then it illuminates each of the Double Shot PBT keys with fantastic per-key-RGB lighting. While the keyboard is small, you won't have to worry about it shifting around thanks to its hefty, premium-built, full aluminum chassis. Ghost’s mechanical marvel can last up to 24-hours of usage per charge when connected by Bluetooth, and is charged (or ran) by a USB-C connection.

Bundles have a nasty habit of one item completely outshining the other, but the Ghost M1 holds its own against its premium keyboard counterpart. The M1’s honeycomb-style chassis features six buttons and RGB lighting while weighing just 65 grams, allowing it to glide across surfaces with ease. There’s also serious performance at hand, with the M1 making use of a Pixart PMW-3389 sensor that can reach up to 16,000 DPI, has a polling rate of 1,000Hz and a lightning-fast 1ms response time. Whether you’re looking for a daily driver or a gaming gem, Ghost’s M1 mouse has plenty to offer.
