HAVIT KB486L Keyboard and Mouse Combo Review

With gaming becoming more and more popular every year, people are always on the lookout for good gaming gear. Havit reached out to have their gaming and keyboard mouse combo reviewed – and I was happy to give them a thorough test. Overall, the mouse is really light which might be good depending on what you need and they keyboard is incredibly responsive. Overall, it has all the essentials you would need to game, but let’s dive into the specifics so you can decide if it’s right for you.

Review of the Havit mouse

Compared to the other mouse I use from Havit for my gaming, this one is much lighter. It’s sensitive to movement as well, which is great if you’re playing fast-paced games. It doesn’t have mouse speed adjustments right on it, you’ll have to go into the settings on your computer to change that. You can adjust the DPI from 800-1600-2400-3200-4800-6400. There are no weights on the bottom of it, so you’ll have to like a lighter mouse since you can’t add any in to make it heavier.

The lighting on the mouse has seven different modes to choose between. On my Mac it just rotates between all of the colors, but on PC I can go in and adjust the settings to what I want. The mouse clicks slower than my other gaming mouse, so depending on the speed you need, that’s something to keep in mind. One interesting feature is that the texture of this mouse is that it’s rougher which gives you a good grip on it, even through fast gameplay.

Review of the Havit keyboard

The Havit keyboard has 21 different light modes. This keyboard has red keys, which gives you the good “click” sound if you like to make sure you’re hitting your keys and enjoy that feeling. That’s not my personal favorite type of keyboard to type work with, but for gaming it’s solid. It’s smaller than some other gaming keyboards at 89 keys because they put the numbers over the arrows on the right hand to save space.

This keyboard is 100% anti-ghosting, which essentially means you can push multiple keys at the same time and have them all perform their actions. This is essential if you play fast-paced games so you don’t lose multiple commands when you need them all at the same time. The Y button also had some light cosmetic damage, as you can see in the above picture.

More thoughts

There’s also a mouse pad which is big enough to handle most gameplay without sliding off of it. It also has an anti-slip bottom under the mat so you can game with speed and not slide all over your desk. It stayed in place even through the roughest gameplay. This combo is compatible with multiple types of systems including MAC OS, Windows, and Linux.
