Although Rapoo has been around for years and are very popular in Asia and Europe, they haven’t really made a big splash in the U.S. yet. They launched their VPro gaming brand last August and brought the whole line to CES to show them off.
The line consists of three mechanical keyboards equipped with long lasting keys, approximately 60 million key strokes with a 2mm travel, and 50 g operating force. The line starts with the V500 which is a compact board designed for LAN parties, etc.
Next up is the V700 which is a full board equipped with a NUM pad and back lit keys.
Rounding out the group is the V800 with programmable back lit keys. The board also has onboard memory so it remembers your settings and changes when you switch computers.
There is also a combo set, the V100 that includes a dome switch equipped keyboard and 3000 DPI optical mouse.
Finally there are three gaming mice in the VPro stable. It includes the V200, V300, and the V900. The two lowest models are both optical mice with onboard memory to save settings. The V200 has a max of 3000 DPI with five programmable keys while the V300 maxes out at 4000 DPI and has six programmable keys. The V900 is the flagship mouse and is laser equipped. It features an 8200 DPI laser and has a 1000Hz polling rate. Additionally it has fully customizable buttons and led lighting.
