Gaming

Playing DOOM with AORUS Gaming mouse and Keyboard resulted in a great gaming time with good experience. The design of the AORUS mouse is really nice because it increases the overall comfort with better positioned side buttons.

AORUS K7 Gaming keyboard also added a great comfort with Cherry MX RED switches which feel quite light and effortless to the touch.

  • Nil

AORUS K7 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard :

  • No hand rest
  • Missing dedicated audio mute and volume control keys

Conclusion

First let me talk about the keyboard. When it comes to the mechanical keys and RGB lighting , the AORUS K7 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is the nicest and most comfortable keyboard I have every ran into. Great brushed aluminum looks and Cherry MX RED switches make it a good gaming keyboard. But personally for me a gaming keyboard must have a dedicated audio mute and volume control keys for fast in game audio control. And for daily typing this keyboard is great for the purpose but a hand rest would have added more comfort to any long typing sessions.

Now the AORUS M3 Gaming mouse is also a very comfortable and responsive gaming mouse. When paired with the K7 keyboard this mouse make a great gaming Keyboard mouse combo.

Now considering the price of both products i.e. AORUS M3 Gaming mouse comes around Rs.3.5K(approx) and AORUS K7 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is around Rs.8.5K(approx), we can clearly say that M3 mouse gives a very good value for the price where as the K7 keyboard is bit little expensive , but considering the quality keys, product finishing and overall looks we can easily recommend this bundle for gamers and worthy of our PC TeK Reviews CHOICE Award.
