Bought this on sale for $9.99, but bought it just for the keyboard. I tried using it but had a hard time useing it. The biggest problem I found with the keyboard is the number pad. It has a different layout then normal and it dual functions with the little "delete" keypad.
Love the keyboard, especially the dedicated game section for the left hand with lots of well organized action buttons. It's slightly wider than usual (my cordless is 18" wide, this is about 21" but still fits on my pull out tray. I could fit a mouse but a bit tight, although I prefer table top for mouse anyway).
Mouse is weakest link but could be used a spare.
Mouse is cheap, didn't even bother to plug it in to be honest. Headset is flimsy but I just broke my last one so we'll see how this one does, it has adjustable volume control but no mute on the device.
Overall satisfied with purchase (paid $30). The quality is above average in my opinion, except for the headset which seems to be a bit flimsy. Mouse works fine, I like the keyboard better. However, the looks of the keyboard isn't that attractive (perhaps I've been too spoiled by the awesome Logitech G11/G15 series keyboards).
I would still recommend it to those who want a cheap alternative to a gaming kit. It's been on sale for $20 as a surprise special item before.
If you are looking for a cheap entry into gaming peripherals, this set is an excellent start. While it doesn't quite compare (safe the keyboard) to some other (and, of course, more expensive) options, it's great for the price.
For a first time FPS this is a great package, has Full vista support ever 64 bit. The software is very easy to use, and there is tons of game mods pre-made. Be sure to download the latest software of course.
If you have limited real estate on your desktop then be prepared to move things. This board is quite long so does require some space. The mouse works great though it is very lightweight, and have no idea how to get the red button on the top to work.
The Ideazon Gaming Pack is a great keyboard/mouse/headset combo, at an amazing price. The star of the package, the MERC gaming keyboard, is amazing. The keyboard is not the most aesthetically good looking keyboard out there because of the extra gaming pad on the left side of the keyboard(one of my friends calls it the pregnant keyboard :P). However, its functionality is the best for gaming. The keys on the pad are placed perfectly for easy access of all your fingers. The ZEngine is what makes this keyboard shine. You can create profiles for each game you have, and customize the keys to your liking. You can also set macros to keys. It also comes with a bunch of preset profiles for hundreds of games. Overall, the keyboard is great for any gamer out there, especially those interested in FPS or RPG games. The other components of this package are very average products. The mouse is not bad for gaming. The increase in DPI is helpful in shooter games. However, the mouse does not have any extra buttons, except the DPI switch button, which are common on other gaming mouses. The headset is also average. The sound quality is average. The microphone is actually quite good. I have not had any problems so far with the microphone, and is clear in games. Do not expect a top of the line gaming microphone.
