It is obvious that the number of gaming peripheral brands are growing in the Philippines. If you follow our social media channels and blog, you would know that we have been posting sample and review items we have been receiving from brands such as ASUS Republic of Gamers, Zowie and Gamdias.
One year that captivated our attention was Rapoo. Rapoo is a winner of multiple accolades from the press and international bodies such as the Industry Forum and Design (iF) for its innovations on product designs, has created a system which loads the odds to benefit the end user.
They launched a few items last April 2017, and we even got the chance to review their VPRO V310 mouse and VPRO V720S gaming keyboard. This year, they started to engage a few bloggers and game streamers to introduce and promote their latest line of new products.
The new products of Rapoo include two performance mice, a decked-out headset and two gaming keyboards. V16 and V280 are budget gaming mice that are positioned for gamers who spend a huge amount of time playing games. Its ergonomic design and streamlined build prevent unnecessary strain on the wrists and hands. Both mice have a feature called Accurate Navigation Professional gaming optical engine, allowing for increased accuracy for navigating tricky turns and stops, but the V280 elevates the experience that much further with an adjustable real-time DPI button and an onboard memory. V16 and V280 cost PhP659 and PhP1,320 respectively.
Rapoo’s latest mechanical keyboards V500Pro (PhP2,495) and V700RGB Alloy (PhP3,395) feature full mechanical keys with switches that can withstand up to 60M operations. It also has a non-conflict design, which lets you press a number of keys simultaneously without any issues – a feature that is similar to N-Key rollover.
Lastly, Rapoo’s latest headset, the VH200, which retails for PhP1,495, feature a comfortable over-ear design adorned with 16M RGB. It also has adjustable sound modes and discrete noise-canceling microphones.
