RAPOO V500 Pro: A Budget Friendly RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard


I have been using RAPOO V500 Pro for 2 months already. I have listed my observations based on the product design, feel, and price point.

Design

Rapoo V500Pro truly excels. Out of the box, the keyboard sports a full keyboard setup with function keys on the top and a dedicated numpad. The body is primarily made of solid plastic with no bending whenever pressure is applied. This allows the keyboard to become lighter while maintaining a sturdy build all throughout its body. It is supported by rubber grommets and adjustable feet that allows you to have the keyboard flat or elevated. The keyboard cable sports a rubber finish and is terminated with a standard USB connector.

The keyboard houses 104 individuals sitting on top of their proprietary blue switches which has a lifespan of 60 Million keystrokes. A high number for a blue switch that is made in-house. Each individual key is backlit with RGB lighting that – in addition to the mechanical feel their switches offer - completes the overall gaming theme. 

Feel

Its sturdy feel on hand even though it sports a light and sleek design. I did not feel any bending throughout using the keyboard; a problem most keyboards this thin experience. The keys are tactile and responsive. I really like the clicky feel whenever they are pressed and there are also no significant delays in action upon pressing.

Thoughts

The Rapoo V500pro is a solid keyboard for its price. The overall design of the keyboard is solid and will appeal to gamers who are really into tactile key responses and RGB lighting. It is lightweight and sleek design can also appeal to those gamers who are on the go but cannot live without a full-sized keyboard. 

If you are looking for a budget friendly keyboard that stands out from the rest, then the Rapoo V500 Pro might just be the keyboard for you.

Price

Rapoo V500 Pro is available for purchase on Silicon Valley, Complink, and PC Express for about 2495 pesos.
