As for the mouse I was surprised how small it was and also lightweight and I wasnít sure if I would like it being used to a chunky Microsoft explorer but after a few moments of browsing the web with it I found that it was very responsive and I my explorer mouse soon became a bad memory, the wheel mouse was very similar to the explores so no complaints there and the response was just as good at 800 dpi , nice compact and small.
Not only does the mouse have great looks it also has ultra sensitive optical technology so you can make precise movements when you are battling on your latest game or just browsing the web, it is also comfortable because it is only 80g the mouse doesnít become heavy in you hand, the problems I have with the mouse are the amount of buttons it has only 3 and Iím used to a mouse with 5 but if you look at it from thermaltakes point of view adding more buttons would have made it more bulky and it would have taken away from the design, and Iím sure thermaltake can bring out a 5 button mouse in the future, apart from there only being 3 buttons I soon got to live without the other 2 buttons while gaming and soon got back to my usual elite self, the only other thing I didnít like was the mouse has a red glow and not a blue like the keyboard and case but I suppose that is just me being spoilt.
As you can see the keyboard lights match the case and use blue LEDís, ok time to take a look at the specs for the keyboard and mouse

You can see the keyboard is not USB 2.0 but this is only a keyboard and doesnít need the speed that USB 2.0 delivers the mouse is only 800dpi which is not one of the top performers but it is still very responsive and would look great on anyoneís desk. Including mineJ. The keyboard I found to be very easy to use and after a few hours I found it better to use as a chunkier keyboard.
So after reviewing the Tsunami keyboard and mouse what do I think about it, well I like the slim and simple design of the mouse which is also very comfortable and found that it was easy to get used to, I preferred it over my old Microsoft explorer which was very large and heavy, as for the keyboard after playing Halflife 2 for a few hours and then using it for a week I had mastered the laptop type keys and was bashing away on them like a secretary that has had to much coffee, I also found the internet hotkeys save you more time than you realize being able to refresh, move forward and back through the pages and even turn off the computer with the touch of a button just makes using the computer that much easier for the novice users out there.†
So would I buy the tsunami mouse & keyboard, in simple words yes as it makes my computer that much better I just canít wait to see if Thermaltake release the tsunami monitor that is pictured on the front of the box. Would I buy this keyboard if I didnít have the tsunami case well if you are looking for a stylish and streamline keyboard and mouse then this might be what you are looking for.
