Genius SlimStar 8000 Wireless Keyboard/Mouse Set Review
Whenever someone brings up the topic about keyboards, the first thought that runs through my mind is 'headshot'. Why headshot? Well, I just think about the frustrated gamer who does a miniature Hulk smash on his keyboard when he suddenly dies in Counter-Strike. I hate to imagine how many keyboards die every year due to competitive gamers unleashing their rage. Of course, when it comes down to playing games at a competitive level, many would say a mechanical keyboard is the only way to go. Mechanical keyboards excel at quick keystrokes due to independent switches and high tactile resistance. Obviously, those who want the upper edge and play at a competitive level would probably be looking for the typical gaming keyboard and wired mouse. In today's world, some feature LCD screens, and still others provide macro capabilities. However, many people could say, at one point or another, they had to play games with a normal office keyboard. I remember way back when I first got my own awesome gaming computer, I had to settle with a cheap wireless keyboard and mouse. It was nothing special, but I will tell you a little secret of mine. I still loved it. Was I a super competitive gamer at 14? No. Games were all about the fun of being engaged in some fantasy and working towards an objective. It never really mattered if there was a few milliseconds of delay, or have my wireless mouse die on me in the middle of critical situations. The latter grew into the reason why I changed over to a wired mouse for gaming. Nonetheless, the Genius SlimStar 8000 brings back the nostalgia of playing games and completing other office work with a wireless keyboard and mouse, and things have gotten much smaller since then. Read on to find out more about this slim little keyboard and mouse.
