About the Ares…
Most of the combo reviews I’ve written so far is from Cooler Master. It started with Devastator, continued with Octane and then the Masterkeys Lite L which is better out of the three. Gamdias is making a lot of gaming keyboard and mouse combo dubbed as ‘Ares’ and this particular one is the GKC6000.
Packaging and Contents
The Ares essential combo comes in a standard packaging. The keyboard is modeled Ares GKB6000 while the mouse is the Ourea GMS5500 which is available as a standalone mouse. The combo does utilize Gamdias one-utility-fits-all Hera software.
