The likes of Corsair, Steelseries and Razer have a massive fan following in the world of PC gaming peripherals. But, for those of you who are not willing to spend over $200 for a mechanical gaming keyboard, the Rapoo VPro V500Pro is the latest budget-friendly solution that is easy to buy.
Of late, there have been lots of peripherals that cost less than $50 including gaming mice and gaming keyboards, both mechanical and membrane keyboards. It is up to the gamer to decide the kind of experience they are looking forward to because after having spent close to $1000 or double the sum on a gaming PC, it may be bit tough to spend an equal amount on all the peripherals associated with the Master Race experience.
The Rapoo VPro V500Pro keyboard is made of an aluminum frame that provides it extreme durability and rigidity when typing. The keys are designed to mimic Cherry MX Blue switches with much higher noise levels but they are also the best at providing a tactile feedback. Every press will be evident in this type of keys that are manufactured by Rapoo that significantly reduces the cost of the keys unlike keyboards that use original Cherry MX Blue switches.
The compact keyboard is designed to ideally suit the PC space and doesn’t have any additional programmable keys as it focuses primarily on the basics. The company claims that their switches should comfortably last up to 60 million clicks and also supports anti-ghosting technology so as to let gamers press all keys at once without any issues.
With a spill resistant design, it is not water proof but water resistant and any accidental liquid spills should be immediately wiped clean. The Rapoo VPro V500Pro is available in the UK for 49.99 GBP and expected to cost around $60 or so when it gets launched in other regions.
