Rapoo V500 Pro Mechanical Keyboard and V16 Optical Mouse Hands-on Review


Rapoo has been in the market for over 5 years and it has been a home for computer / mobile accessories, smart home devices and gaming peripherals.

Luckily, we had the chance to take a hands-on and use two of their gaming peripherals for a month – the Rapoo V500 Pro mechanical gaming keyboard and the V16 optical gaming mouse.

Rapoo V500 Pro


The V500 Pro is a mechanical gaming keyboard. It has a mix-colored backlight with adjustable brightness.

Even though we see different colors on each section of the keyboard, this one is not a RGB keyboard. It means that you cannot personalized or change the colors of other sections to the one that you prefer.


We like how the different sections like the F-keys are separated by a larger space compared to other keyboards. This kind of setup makes our typing experience more convenient preventing us from accidental press on unnecessary button.


The same with the special keys, arrow keys, and the num pad. We also like that there is a gap between them.

After a month of usage, we can say that the V500 Pro is a good option if you are planning to upgrade on a mechanical keyboard. Even though it was really made for casual gamers, the typing experience is also better on this kind of keyboard compared to the normal one.

The Rapoo V16 is an optical gaming mouse. It is a good companion for the V500 Pro because they are one of the most affordable gaming peripherals under the Rapoo VPro gaming series.

It has 3 adjustable DPI values from 750, 1350, and 2000. The VPro logo also has a breathing orange light that adds an cool look on the mouse.

For the price of P695, we can say that the Rapoo V16 is a good value for the money.

The Rapoo V500 Pro and V16 are now available here in the Philippines via partner stores like Silicon Valley, Complink, and PC Express.
