"water" resistant you say
Doesn't really mention types of switches it uses.

I've used TeckNet gaming mouses before, they costed about £10, so why not. Went through 3 in a year and they were replaced free of charge but eventually gave up on them. Can't comment on their keyboards though.
Pictured with a mouse but title just keyboard ?
A bit misleading as others pictured with mice are sets.
I bought this keyboard a couple of weeks ago and love it. I've never really had a mechanical keyboard before, and can only say that this one doesn't make a click noise compared to the normal cheap keyboards, the key press is smooth (I assumed it would be a more mechanical click than normal). The lighting effects variations are very good but there is only the one colour.

Yes it does come with a mouse as well. Personally I thinks its a good buy for the price.
I ordered one of these yesterday, arrived today. Pleasantly surprised for the money. The keypresses aren't as smooth as other mechanical keyboards I've used in the past, which is a shame. But for £35, with a mouse, you can't really complain.

To confirm: It does come with the mouse that is pictured.
This was £15.99 for many years, according to zee camelz:

The dotted line means out of stock.

Someone in the reviews mentioned that the keys were loud. Can you confirm this?

They are, but then that's a trait fairly synonymous with mechanical keyboards. I read that you can buy some rubber O-rings to dampen the noise if you want them to be quieter.

Oh....I thought it meant lowest price.
I have this set on a second PC at home.

I think they use their own switches. Feel like softer, mushier, Cherry MX blacks to me.

For comparison, I also use a Steelseries 6Gv2 (Cherry black switches) at work, and a Gigabyte Aivia Osmium (Cherry red switches) on my main gaming PC at home.

Compared to the other two, this is the worst of the three. But I still just about prefer it over membrane keyboards. The switches do not feel as positive as Cherry ones. They feel a little "mushy" to me. Closer to blacks than reds. My space bar has a habit of missing if I catch it towards the edges. (Never happens with my other two) The backlight switches itself off automatically after a short delay with no keypresses.

The mouse similarly is OK. The side buttons are annoying. They are positioned in such a way that I find it almost impossible to pick up the mouse and relocate it on the mat without hitting one of them. But if seems fairly precise and I'm not noticing any drift.

For this price (which seems to be standard - it's what I paid for it) it's decent enough.

But if I'd spent a fortune on a high end gaming rig, I would get better than this as my keyboard/mouse combo.

Compared to the Cherry blacks and reds, the ones this uses seem quiet to me.

And the guy showing the price graph, I suspect that was keyboard only. Not with the mouse included.
