RAPOO Gaming Labs, a renowned developer when it comes to PC and gaming peripherals, takes its gaming up a notch with the introduction of its own brand for hardcore gaming, VPRO.
VPRO introduces a wide range of gaming peripherals for the benefit of veteran gamers and entry-gamers alike. The brand introduces high-end mechanical keyboards, impeccable tracking mice, and quality-sounding headsets.
RAPOO has been part of the peripheral business since 2002, and with VPRO rolling out, the company is eyeing to be a fierce competitor when it comes to gaming.
Last April 3, 2017, RAPOO launched its brand new line of gaming peripherals under the name VPRO. The event was led by RAPOO Overseas Managing Director Oliver Shi, Regional Sales Director Johnson Zhang, along with the group’s Country Manager Aileen Chua and Local Retail Sales Manager Lem Estiva.
“Gaming has gotten a lot more serious these past few years, and there are already a lot of Filipino ProGamers who are making a name for themselves in eSports tournaments all over the world. We want to nurture the passion and talent Filipinos have by letting them experience the gaming gear used by the top Cyber Athletes in the world,” says Kyle Guo, Rapoo R&D Director.
What is VPRO?
VPRO is a professional gaming brand under RAPOO which specializes on a wide range of gaming peripherals, each to suite a user’s needs, wants, and budget. The new brand produces quality and value peripherals such as gaming mice, mechanical keyboards, and gaming headsets.
Utilizing the prowess of RAPOO when it comes to manufacturing peripherals, VPRO is able to drastically reduce the product-development cycles, allowing it to keep track of the latest trends and the demands of the gaming community.
Unlike its competitors, RAPOO is able to self-produce most of its components, thereby producing incredible gears while maintaining a low price ceiling.
