Zebronics Zeb-Transformer Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo (USB, Braided Cable)
Zebronics Zeb-Transformer Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Review from Sonal K.
if bought for more than 50% off. Do not recommend at full price.
1. Metal top and thick plastic base makes it very strong and minimum deck flex.
2. Raised keycaps and tactile membrane keys. IT’S NOT A MECHANICAL KEYBOARD.
3. Long braided cable with strong USB connector.
4. Decent rubber pads to stop slipping on the desk.
5. Windows lock and RGB light brightness control buttons.
6. Interchangeable WASD and Arrow Keys.
1. Input gets stuck sometimes even if the keys are not stuck. Happens about 4 times in 24 hours on average.
2. Sometimes input is not registered.
3. Keys are not equally tactile. Space bar takes a lot of effort.
4. Only 3 light color combinations, no effects. Forget about software synchronization.
5. It’s NOT TRULY BACKLIT, key labels are not visible by the light, only the key gaps are lit.
6. Packaging is bad.
1. Ergonomic and grippy design, easy to hold for medium and large hands.
2. Metal base allows smooth movement and weight to the mouse.
3. 6 buttons – Left/Right/Scroll/DPI/Forward/Backward
4. 4 DPI settings 1000/1600/2400/3200 through cycling.
5. Long braided cable with stroNg USB connector.
1. Sometimes input is not registered.
2. Metal base is not removable if you prefer the light mouse.
3. Only RGB breathing effect, nothing else.
4. Forget about any other features at this price with RGB.
I bought this about a month ago and it’s running well. The build quality is very strong, you can kill a person with the keyboard. The packaging is very bad, resulting in a lot of people getting damaged products.
Even though there are issues with inputs for both the mouse and keyboard, it never happened during my daily 4-hour gaming binge. However, I don’t recommend this for intense FPS gaming as it can be difficult to hold the mouse for very fast movements for a long time.
The RGB is okay but the money could have been used for adding other features or making the existing ones better, or at least they could’ve made the key labels visible by the light. I do not recommend buying this at Rs.1600 as there are other better alternatives available at that price or a little more, like the Cooler Master keyboard-mouse combo. Buy this if you get a sale where the price is closer to Rs.1000.
Edit: As of 02/02/2020, the ‘1’ and ‘Z’ keys from the alpha-numeric set have stopped working. I have reduced the ratings as the problems mentioned above have increased and a new problem has come up. The mouse works fine, but if clicked too hard, the next click won’t register. I DO NOT RECOMMEND buying at more than half the price, save more money and buy other better options.

Best you can get at this price!
Okay, so I got this combo today. The packaging was a bit bad. The box was deformed at some point, but the keyboard and mouse were in excellent condition.
Talking about the product, the build quality is awesome. The breathing LEDs are a charm. The mouse is way too smooth. The keyboard keys don’t wobble and give somewhat a mechanical feel.
In short, the headline is 100% right. Just go for it!

Best Budget combo. Review after 2 years.
If you in a budget, you will really appreciate this combo. This is one of the best that you can get. If you can find it around or less than 1200, buy it in a local shop. Bcoz, amazon ships this product in an extremely bad shape. I’ve bought 3 of these in the past 2 to 3 years. 1 from local which was good. And 2 from amazon which was damaged a bit. Since there was a local service center I was able to get it replaced. If u don’t get a damaged one, then you’ll definitely love this. Some pros and cons after using for 2 years.
Stylish metallic look
Keys and mouse buttons are really durable
Although it’s a membrane, the keypress is really smooth and silent.
Mouse buttons are smooth and thumb buttons are easy to reach and would be great while gaming.
Sensors are very decent and will be perfectly fine unless you are a professional gamer.
Keyboard has 3 adjustable heights.
If you feel the mouse be heavy, you can remove the side and bottom plates but it’ll void the warranty.
The scroll wheel will definitely fail at one point but this was not an issue for me as this can be fixed easily. Check out YouTube for this.
The RGB lights are pointless. Lights are behind the keys and keys don’t allow light through them so you can’t see the keys in a dark room.
The package always arrives in a damaged state. So you gotta be lucky to get an undamaged piece.
There’s no software so the mouse will always have a breathing light effect and the keyboard has 2 to 3 modes that can’t be modified. But this can’t be considered a con for a product at this price and I always keep the lights off.
Apart from these minor cons, the functionality and performance of this product are outstanding.

The product is very good ….. Elite keyboard under fair price …..
But the MRP isn’t 2599… But it is 1599 (as shown behind the box).
Review by Devesh
Worth a deal for 1150 rupees ….but don’t get your hopes too high
This really a worth deal for 1150 which I got this pair of keyboard and mouse for. So now, first of all, I received this package 1 day after the estimated day the packaging was really bad and was making some noises then I found that there were two screws which were unscrewed in the process of shipping or something. The ergonomics of the mouse is really good it just fits perfectly in my hands the buttons on the mouse pretty good but two side buttons are really clumsy to click I have accidentally the button I don’t want to click like 1/5 times the keyboard also doesn’t have that clicky feeling it has a soft feeling the wires are really good they are braided and have gold plating on the male USB end ….overall a good deal but don’t get your hopes so high , the quality is good for the price you are paying you don’t get to customize the RGB of individual key but you can try few zone lighting or u can turn the lights off but you cannot turn off the mouse lights
Review by Khan Saheb
EVEN IF U TURN OFF ALL THE LIGHTS ITS WORTH MORE THAN WHAT IT’S BEING SOLD FOR!
I was a bit skeptical at first when this was on offer for 1200rs, as I don’t usually trust reviews here. but must say this one blew my expectations and I have a newfound respect for reviewers too.
The quality of the keyboard and the mouse is very good better than good I must say.
The LED features could have been more elaborate well anyways u can turn them off on both the devices.
(On the mouse long-press the Dpi button to turn off the LED). ps-found it the hard way.
STURDY, BEAUTIFUL, AND VALUABLE FOR UR EVERY PENNY.
Review by Omkar
Got in two days after ordering.. packaging was the worst ever.. keyboard was damaged from the outside.. a slight 4 bends on the body and a lot of scratches on the back. came in wet condition.. didn’t applied for replacement because it was working fine and also think that it was waste of time as it takes a week to exchange.. be careful although the product is good..
Edit: after giving one star.. it stops taking images in review.

Best mouse I’ve used to date
Love this mouse. And I’ve been using it every day since I got it. The ergonomics make it easy to hold for long hours, and the dpi setting works well based on the kind of work you’re doing. There is a button on the side to make web navigation easier (backward/forward actions on web pages can be done from the mouse itself) The wheel has a certain play to it while scrolling which is so satisfying; the led can be turned off or on according to your preference. It kind of has become the rockstar of my desk..lol
Best gaming keyboard and mouse
Whatever expectations I had with this keyboard and mouse are fulfilled and I really like it. I ordered this for gaming and typing because I am a blogger, so I need to type a lot and till now it’s working perfectly fine. But the only issue I saw was that the backspace key was wobbling a little bit when it arrived, and after the use obviously, it will increase but that is just normal and will happen with any keyboard whose key travel is high, but surprisingly wobbling doesn’t make any noise. The sound when I type is not a mechanical sound but still gives a mechanical keyboard feel. RGB colors of the mouse are very cool and are kind of very unique colors which you don’t see very often in daily life and RGB of keyboard is not extraordinary, infact I would say that if RGB of keyboard is turned off then it looks nicer because the color combination of black keys aluminum’s color makes it a very decent and classy looking keyboard. The build quality of the keyboard and mouse is very nice and I accidentally drooped the keyboard from about a height of 5 feet and it had no damage at all. I also had a doubt that the print on the keycaps would fade after use and since in gaming W, S, A, D keys are used the most, so I thought that those key’s print would fade but it didn’t happen and they are as clear as if it’s new. The price this product offers is also decent and the product is awesome. So much recommended

Good entry-level Gaming Keyboard.
Delivered in one day with a good package.
Got deal around 1129/-
The keyboard is having brushed metal aluminum with a sturdy build. 3 hight adjustment. Lighting with 4 different modes, 3 steady color modes with different combinations of RGB which you can see in the attached images. And 4th mode is breathing lights on the keyboard. Keys are not anti-ghosting means no through the illumination of keys. Keys are off course not Mechanical but feels good touch though. The reason it’s called Gaming Keyboard is it’s having lights and sturdy build and Windows key lock option.
The mouse is not so heavy with an ergonomically good fit in hand. Breathing lights look good and can be switch Off. DPI function is usefull as per requirement.
Two extra thumb buttons help while browsing and gaming.
