Jaw droppingly gorgeous, and that is putting it plainly.
Let us start with the Mouse Pad, we have the black Archelon mouse pad that has red edging with the Dragon in the corner that is visible through the red background. Simple yet beautiful, the colour combination blends perfectly here.
The mouse packs quite a punch, it has its own LED which can be turned on or off at your leisure, the Redragon Logo on the back that is lit up with the LED. The design and feel of the mouse is very pleasing and sleek. It has that soft rubber feel that blends in with your touch.
The keyboard is so much more than it seems, each key is individually RGB lit to offer clear display. The multimedia shortcut keys add that extra flair and function to your experience. The S101 offers 7 RGB Backlight colours and 6 different lighting modes putting the power of vanity in your hands for all 104 keys.
The Garuda headset is pretty, it has no lighting which is kind of a let-down considering its counterparts have lights. However, the look and design is elegant and very easy on the eyes.
The mouse pad offers the same quality feel and touch as you would get with any other Redragon mouse pad, it has that non-skid bottom with that silky feel surface. Your mouse handles like a dream on the mouse pad with no drag or resistance whatsoever.
The mouse fits your hand like a glove, it offers some weight which I personally like, I like feeling the weight of the item I am holding, it makes it more memorable for me, and the M601 offers that to a point, it is not as heavy as I would like but it makes up for that in everything else that it offers.
The touch of the mouse is so pleasing, it is easy and fun to use. It offers a comfortable spot for most of your fingers allowing for a more pleasant experience.
The keyboard is quite comfortable, it has somewhat of a built in arm rest that does offer some support. The key layout and spacing sit a tad too close to each other for my liking, but this is not a mechanical keyboard so it is understandable and acceptable. The multitude of lighting effects and choices makes it very easy on the eye. The finish for the keyboard itself blends quite well with the lights, a very nice combination effect here.
The S101 comes with Non-Slip rear feet that can be adjusted for perfect typing angles as well.
The headset is adjustable, it offers a lengthy cord which gives you some room to move in and less risk of pulling something over. The Ear cups sit comfortably over your ears ensuring lengthy gaming sessions aren’t interrupted. The microphone is fully adjustable and easy to adjust for use or non-use.
I’ve been using this entire set for quite a while now and some of it I will continue to use, but my experience thus far is only good. Considering that this is a value pack, one, would assume low quality items, this is not the case here.
Frankly most items last longer if they are cared for properly and used in the correct manner. The mouse really shines here, it handles gaming like a pro and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down, the mouse itself is just as sturdy, there is no sign of any damages or material being rubbed off after use, and trust me I am behind a PC 15 hours a day so my equipment works over time every day, it handles all its tasks beautifully.
The mouse pad is of the same high quality standards as the other Redragon ones so there is no issue here at all.
The keyboard is an absolute dream to game on or to work with, the keyboard offers a quiet and precise keystroke experience. The Spill- resistance is the real winner here, too many times an accident occurred that has resulted in rage, anger or sadness due to damaged hardware. The S101 is built to withstand liquid spill. DISCLAIMER; Do not test it out at home!
The Garuda H101 Stereo Gaming Headphones is lightweight but do not let that fool you, it is built to last, the foam memory over the cups are of a high quality and will keep your experience on par for a long time to come. The cable itself has been braided just like the keyboard and mouse ensuring that every part of this set is high quality and very durable.

MGR Gaming’s Conclusions:
The better and fancier hardware gets the pricier they become and to be frank, it is difficult to maintain a set up that is comprised of the best of the best, not only in performance but in vanity as well.
So, it is refreshing to see that Redragon went as far as to combine a set of hardware they have that is comprised of high quality value items for one great price. This set may not be seen as the best of the best, but for the price you get a lot more than what you pay for. If these items are used properly and cared for, they will last for a long time ensuring you get more than your money’s worth.
