Speedlink ULTOR and OMNIVI Review
Speedlink is not a company I am familiar with, yet loved the modern and unique look of their items. So I decided to reach out and was to get their mouse and keyboard. I have been using them for a couple of months and am totally in love.
I love the keys on this keyboard, they are mechanical, but a lot quieter then previous one. It is a lot smaller then ones I have used in the past due the lack of the num pad. They also have a rubber finish to them, which is a lot nicer on my finger tips then the harsher plastic.
This thing looks cool, with its Iron Man red and the black keys with blue leds. The WSAD keys feature a white light, as these are most common for gamers. The cable provided is 1.7 long and is braided making it very durable. The size makes it feel like I can just pick it and and put it in my bag, which I tend to do now. There is a lack of an arm rest, which isn’t a bad thing but can be a nice addition.

The only negative for me, is the lack of a num pad. This is a big thing for me as I use this more for office work and less about gaming.
Lets talk about the elephant in the room, the look of this mouse. It’s amazing! It looks like a mouse a gamer would have and it feels great in the hand. It’s a very light, smooth-moving mouse with a good positive clicking action on the buttons; the wheel rotates smoothly too. There’s a pleasing gap between the forward and backward side buttons; this makes it very easy to be certain your thumb is on the right button.

Some aspects of the mouse are higher quality than I’d expect for this price; the cable in particular is fabric-covered, feels very sturdy and doesn’t get itself caught on anything. The actual feel of the mouse body is good but not great – a sort of matt plastic with no rubberised surfaces, and the mouse is physically just a little on the small size. That said it still soundly beats the bargain-basement Logitech equivalents I’ve handled.
