  • Black-out design.
  • Aluminium plate for added stability.
  • Clicky and tactile keys.
  • Lots of functions in regards to lighting.
  • Spill resistant.
  • Anti ghosting.

Cons:

  • No software.
  • Basic rubber cable.
  • Heavy Blue switches won’t be for everyone.
  • The RGB LEDs aren’t bright enough to light up the whole key.
  • Keys do scuff quite easily using the key cap remover.
  • The keycaps attract grease and sweat.

KitGuru says: We have been quite critical while reviewing the V500Pro but despite some cons the price is really competitive and there are some excellent features on tap considering this is a £50 keyboard. If you are looking for a good example of a budget friendly gaming keyboard that will get the job done then this is definitely for you.
