Thanks to the rubberized side parts, the mouse lies very comfortably in the hand and can be used for a longer period of time without any problems. Only the small size could be unpleasant for users with very large hands after long periods of use. Here, however, it is again necessary to refer to the concept, which relies on flat, thin and small individual parts. Furthermore, it is unlikely that such long periods of use will be achieved in practice, so that problems should only arise in isolated exceptional cases.
The mouse is equipped with six buttons, a mouse wheel with optical scanning and a magnetic USB receiver seal. The resolution can be set in three steps between 600, 1,000 and 1,600 DPI. Overall, the mouse seemed simple but functional to us in the test. It was easy to use and met all our requirements. In addition, it can be adapted to individual needs to a certain extent, which turned out to be absolutely sufficient. Although it can’t keep up with the precision of outstanding gaming mice, it’s not designed for that either. Another advantage is the low weight of the mouse, which makes it suitable for transport and mobile use. The size is also kept accordingly and Cherry also supplies a small bag for transport. All in all we are very satisfied with the mouse.
As already mentioned, the keyboard is equipped with a sturdy metal plate that leaves it extremely secure. The SX scissor technology is used for the keys, which has a positive effect on the service life and operability. The typing feeling was extremely pleasant in the test. Especially typical office activities can be done very well with the keyboard, as it offers a pleasant typing feeling. We could not notice any disturbing background noises at any time during the test.
The labeling of the keys is resistant to abrasion, which can be expected in this day and age. The existing status LEDs for the up, roll and num-lock keys are now also part of the basic equipment of an average keyboard. The additional delete key in the numeric keypad is an extra that may not be needed, but could provide some users with a practical relief so that we rate it positively.
Other extras include a lock button, a web calculator, a calculator and several volume keys. However, a button for play/pause is missing. All in all, the keyboard is very solidly equipped and can convince in practice.
