This Valentine’s Day, apart from the usual flowers, chocolates, and stuffed toys, why not gift your gamer loved one with a mechanical keyboard? In fact, here are two of them, as suggested by Rapoo!
The entry-level V500 Alloy Mechanical Gaming Keyboard uses a Tenkeyless design, and is equipped with Rapoo’s mechanical switches (our unit had Blue switches) which are rated for 60 million clicks. It’s also spill resistant, for your peace of mind.
It boasts an Aluminum Alloy surface cover, suspension type keycap design, programmable keys, on-board memory so you get to keep your settings, and a gold plated USB connector with a braided fiber cable.
On the other hand, the V500SE is the brand’s mid-range offering, and also uses its in-house mechanical switches with a rated lifespan of 60 million clicks. It also features a spill-resistant design, and has dedicated media keys for convenience. You get a metal cover, as well as individually backlit keys.
The Rapoo V500 and V500 SE are currently on sale at discounted prices via Rapoo Philippines’ official store on Shopee. The former is priced at PhP1,199 (from PhP2,499) and the latter at PhP1,399 (from PhP2,199).
