All I can say is wow
on April 6, 2011
First let me finish worshiping this thing before I get to why I rated it only 4 stars.
The keyboard is spectacular! It dosent sound like any keyboard I have ever used, it sounds like...well, wood. Kind of clunky is how I would describe it, but it feels almost like any other keyboard if I close my eyes. The reason I say almost is because 1. It dosent feel like plastic and 2. Because the spacing of the keys is maybe 5% different than a normal windows keyboard (I'm an IT guy and am on one all day so I noticed, others will most likely not notice). The color will very from the picture, but thats to be expected, but my color might change when I oil it. Yes I said oil it. This is after all a WOODEN keyboard and wood needs to be oiled if I remember correctly from my chef classes on cutting boards. And by oiled I mean very very lightly! Anyway, keyboard is great.
The mouse is very very nice except for one issue I will get to at the end. The color matches very well and the only slight drawback is the logo on the mouse, but hey, its w/e. The scroll wheel also glows blue, just fyi and it looks nice.
The color of the wires on the mouse and keyboard are "wood" colored (light light brown?).
The bad (the only bad) thing is the mouse. Not the looks or feel, but the tech inside it. It dosen't really work right. It just dosen't "feel" correct on the screen when I use it. This might just be a mistake in the manufacturing of the mouse so I will call amazon or impecca (amazon first, 5 star customer service) to see if I should ship the whole thing back or just the mouse to see if a new one will work better. This is the only bad thing about the keyboard that is major. The only minor thing is that the "num lock" light dosent light up, but this might just be because I'm on my friends mac (my computer that I ordered this for has not been shipped, or...well...paid for or chosen lol and will be windows). If you have a mac I don't recommend because the keys are not mac oriented, ie the squiggly key and command keys are not on it. I hate macs anyway so its not a big deal. And thats all for bad.
I'll post a pic of this also.
One last note is that I looked on the impecca (makers) web site and this set cost [...] ([...] for just the keyboard and [...] for just the mouse)! Not [...] like on amazon, so get it here! I will edit this post with many details when my ordeal with customer service and geting a replacement etc pans out later. As of now, I would get this keyboard anyway, screw the mouse!
