Getting the opportunity to review computer peripherals is like a double-edged sword. “Why?” do you ask? Well first off, I get to play with something new, a nice new keyboard or mouse, maybe even a headset. The downside though, is realizing that the actual gear you own is not that great, and that leads you to spend money to get really cool things. The Aryaman keyboard was something like that to me, and Kunlun mouse pad definitely gave me that feeling (I actually own the Kunlun now), unfortunately, the Memeanlion Chroma was not like that for me at all. In this article, I’ll review the Redragon Aryaman Mechanical Keyboard, the Memeanlion Chroma Gaming Mouse, and the Kunlun Gaming Mouse Pad. I will explain why I wasn’t too happy with the mouse, and what made me really like the mouse pad. Of course, I’ll have the specifics and the performance of all these Redragon items below.

Design and Feel:
The Aryaman is well designed. It’s sturdy and weighs quite a lot for a keyboard. The keys are very responsive, being the Light Blue switches. Other than being a little loud because of the switches, it responds very well during gaming sessions, typing on the Aryaman is really enjoyable too. The Aryaman is almost identical to the Kumara when it comes to the switches and the double injection molded keycaps. The few differences are the RGB for the Aryaman, with it having a Num Pad as well as a removable wrist rest. I feel that the Aryaman is definitely a one up to the Kumara, however, other than a few extra cosmetic features, it doesn’t really bring anything extra to the table.
When testing this keyboard, I played a lot of PUBG, Dota 2 and WoW (mainly because these are the games I generally play). In all the games, I enjoyed the responsiveness of the Aryaman. Other than the sound of the tapping keys during game-play (which doesn’t really affect me when I have my headset on), everything ran smoothly. Having the palm rest is an added bonus, and I honestly didn’t realize how much I enjoyed using it until I changed back to my Kumara. I also liked the RGB look as it suited the RGB to my tower and to the Memeanlion Chroma gaming mouse.
For an entry-level RGB mechanical keyboard, the Aryaman is a great keyboard. It feels solid, sturdy, and it’s even spill-proof. The only thing that lets this Redragon keyboard down is the price. The economy is not in a good place at the moment, and buying tech items is really expensive. The Aryaman is close to R1100-00 from Raru with the Kumara being R800-00. So, the price of these items has really gone up. However, compared to your other big brands, it’s still a more cost-effective item. I give the Aryaman a solid 7/10.

Design and Feel:
The design of the Memeanlion Chroma Gaming mouse is very basic. This is your standard entry level mouse with not much to really say about it. It has a really cool gaming look with the RGB lights on either side of the mouse. Other than that, nothing else stands out and screams “I’m awesome”. No, at the price range you pay for this mouse, it has just enough to make sure that it is worth it. Even though the mouse comes with adjustable weights, it still feels really light (even with all the weights in it), personally I like a heavy mouse, something that feels like a tank really, but for someone else a lighter mouse is perfect. The plastic used is not too bad though. The Teflon pads are just right to make sure that the mouse moves smoothly across the mouse pad.
Like the Aryaman Keyboard, I played a lot of a PUBG and Dota 2 with this mouse with WoW BFA thrown into the mix. During PUBG, I noticed that the ease of adjusting the DPI was great, which enabled me to get to the right sensitivity, this, however, is not new and is not limited to the Memeanlion Chroma. I did feel that the left and right mouse buttons were not as responsive as I would have liked, and more than once during game-play in PUBG, when trying to use my scope it zoomed in and out even though I only clicked the right button once.
During WoW BFA, I noticed that you could not use any other buttons in-game if you were using one of the mouse buttons for Push-to-Talk on the VOIP program. This became very clear when I was using Discord and trying to talk to my friend while clearing a dungeon. It became increasingly frustrating when the skills I was pressing with the mouse was not registering while talking. I have not seen this with any other mouse brands (I personally use the Redragon M901 Perdition and haven’t had this issue before).
In all, the actual ergonomics of the mouse is great. For extensive game-play, it is comfortable on the wrist and the palm of the hand. This is definitely an entry level mouse, and that is not something that Redragon should be ashamed of. For those who can’t afford a fancy gaming mouse then this is the way to go, offering just enough for the price you pay. It has enough buttons, the cool gaming look and it is comfortable for both left and right-handed people. You could look at paying something around R400-00 for the Memeanlion Chroma and can purchase it from Raru. This mouse gets a 6/10 from me. If this is what you can afford, you won’t regret it.

Design and Feel:
I really like the design and feel of this mouse pad. It’s large enough to fit the mouse and keyboard underneath it. The design on the top of the mouse pad looks great while not being overbearing. The top of the mouse pad is smooth and feels great on the skin, especially while moving across the gaming pad. The underside has processed rubber foam which ensures your mouse pad doesn’t slip around, this just makes gaming more comfortable all-round.
While using the Kunlun, I used a keyboard with a num-pad and a keyboard without a num-pad. I also used the M901 Perdition mouse and the Memeanlion Chroma mouse on this mouse pad. I have not had any issues with the mouse not tracking correctly. With our without the num pad, both the mouse and the keyboard fitted perfectly on the mouse pad and did not go over onto the desk itself. In all, using this mouse pad was great.
As mentioned above, because I enjoyed using the Kunlun so much, I now own it myself. It is protecting my Oregan Pine desk, especially since the keyboard fits on the mouse pad as well. It looks and feels great, and the materials used are perfect. For the price you pay, I highly recommend the Redragon Kunlun Gaming Mouse Pad, and this get’s a solid 8/10 from me. If you would like to purchase the Kunlun, it goes for about R380-00 from Raru.
