Today we review Motospeed CK888 mechanical keyboard and mouse. The main feature of these devices is RGB backlight. We look at the appearance, design and functionality of keyboard and mouse.
Motospeed is a famous Chinese manufacturer of gaming peripherals such as keyboard, mouse, pads. Its head office is located in Shenzhen.
Keyboard and mouse Motospeed CK888 were provided to us on review by online store GearBest.
For those people who type a lot of text or play computer games, keyboard and mouse are important devices.
Recently, manufacturers use RGB backlight for different products, from computer cases, graphic cards, coolers to periphery as keyboard and mouse. If you are working or playing games in the evening, then RGB backlight will be very useful for you.
A box with a keyboard has an interesting style with panther head or other similar animal on the front panel.
The box has a large size, but it is expected, because inside is a long keyboard. Inside the box you will find the keyboard and mouse, which are packed in soft white bags.
Also, you get manual in various languages, including Chinese, English, Russian, etc. I would like to note that manual describes the key combinations for different actions, such as adjust the sound, open calculator, open my computer, etc. This is a good and useful instruction.
The computer mouse has a nice design, thanks to which it fits comfortably in the hand. On the right and left side of the mouse are inserts which do not allow it to slide in hand.
The mouse has 6 buttons: the main buttons right and left click; two buttons on the left side and two top buttons, ie the drum and button to change DPI.
The buttons on the left side can be configured to copy and paste text, which is very convenient for those users who work with text.
As we have said, Motospeed CK888 is a mechanical keyboard. All mechanical keyboards have fairly loud click compared to the membrane keyboard. For some users it is disadvantage, but for other – benefit.
The basic of keyboard is made of aluminum alloy. It is a very good, because it will not be scratched and covered with dust.
On the back of Motospeed CK888 keyboard are written specifications. We should note that it consumes slightly less power than many of its competitors: 5V and 500mA.
Also here you will find stands to adjust the tilt angle and anti-slip rubber inserts.
Now look at the front panel of keyboard.
As usual, F1-F12 keys are located at the top of keyboard. They also perform a shortcut function, such as volume, pause, stop, email, calculator, etc.
Switchers under the buttons are 3 types: MX blue, MX brown, MX black. MX blue is the loudest, MX brown – very quiet, and MX black – almost inaudible. The buttons are removed quite easily.
Another advantage of mechanical keyboard is that the crumbs from the food will not be trapped under the keys.
When you connect the keyboard at the first time, it flashes 3 different colors. Very nice, but too distracting. Of course, you can turn off RGB backlight or select another mode by pressing keys FN + Insert. Using FN + DEL, you can change the color of RGB backlight. The keyboard has a lot of different and interesting modes.
You can hold down FN + key arrow up or key arrow down to increase the brightness of RGB backlight or to reduced it.
The combination of FN + key arrow left or key arrow right to reduce or increase the speed of flickering lights.
As you can notice, the keys 1-5 have inscriptions FPS, CF, COD, LOL, and RACE. They mean different modes of different genres of games. Pressing FN + key from 1 to 5, you turn on the RGB backlight for the keys that are most commonly used in a particular genre of games.
Another interesting feature – by pressing FN + HM (HomePage), you can program each key independently.
FN + PrintScreen allows you to quickly enable or disable RGB backlight.
You can also use RGB backlight during the day. Of course, it is not so bright and stunning, but it still can be clearly seen.
The video below demonstrate different modes of RGB backlight.
The mouse has a strong laser. Like the keyboard, it has RGB backlight. Pressing the center button, you can change DPI mode, as well as backlight color.
The mouse works well even on rough surfaces. The keys are quite loud, but comfortable.
Unlike the keyboard, you can not turn off RGB backlight on the mouse.
The video below shows the basic mouse functions.
I would recommend the keyboard for users who have long wanted to buy a mechanical keyboard. The main feature of mechanical keyboards is that you definitely hear keystroke. RGB backlight is an excellent feature. Especially for the New Year holidays RGB backlight decorate your cozy evenings.
The price of Motospeed CK888 is about $46.99. You can buy the keyboard and mouse at online store GearBest.
