Raptor’s V500 series has always been the price butcher in the field of mechanical keyboard. It has launched a number of entry-level products with a hundred yuan level, and all of them have become popular, which has promoted the popularization of mechanical keyboard to a certain extent. Recently, with its famous 2.4G wireless technology, raptor launched the V500 Pro wireless version for the first time in this series, bringing the wireless mechanical keyboard to the price of less than 200 yuan. Let’s start to see how its experience is.
Raptor v500pro wireless mechanical keyboard adopts the standard 104 key full-size configuration. At the same time, it continues the concise narrow frame design of V500 series. The black frosted aluminum alloy upper cover makes it more stable and low-key.
The size of the keyboard is 434 * 131 * 36.5mm, and the weight is about 872g, which is relatively light. The FN + function key is preset on the top of the keyboard, which can quickly adjust the volume, play and other commonly used multimedia functions.
In addition, the top right of the keyboard does not use the conventional indicator light, but has an independent light display area, which can display the case lock and power status, and the visual effect is more soft and not dazzling.
The side of the keyboard looks thin. It has a certain input angle. If necessary, it can also open the foot support at the bottom.
At the bottom of the keyboard, there is a pair of single section foot supports and a group of large area anti-skid foot stickers.
In addition, there are four liquid guide holes at the bottom to prevent accidental splashing during use, so that careless users no longer worry about overturning the water cup.
Keyboard accessories include instructions, type-C charging cable, wireless receiver and a sword puller.
Raber V500 Pro wireless version uses ABS material radium character key cap, the front of the key cap has anti-skid coating, compared with the general ABS key cap, the ability of anti oiling is stronger, and the feel is more delicate.
In terms of shaft body, raptor V500 Pro wireless version adopts Raptor’s own mechanical shaft body, with a key life of 60 million times. There are four types of shaft body to choose from: black, green, red and tea. This is the version of the tea axis in my hand. The trigger pressure is moderate. There is a weak sense of paragraph when I press it. The sound is not big. At the same time, the rebound feedback is strong, but the stability of the axis still has room to improve.
In terms of wireless connection, the stability of 2.4G wireless connection adopted by Raptor V500 Pro is better than that of most Bluetooth connections. In the environment with mobile phone, wireless mouse and other interference factors, there is no disconnection or key connection or failure after continuous use for a whole day. In addition, the input delay is slightly lower than that of Bluetooth, so it is not a problem to deal with office and light games.
In terms of endurance, raptor V500 Pro adopts 300mAh built-in lithium battery design, and its back end is type-C charging port (charging only, not wired connection). Thanks to its low-power chip, power-saving technology and no backlight design, the official endurance data can be used continuously for 50 hours, daily office can be up to about 15 days, and the trouble of frequent charging is avoided. At the same time, it only takes 1.5 hours to fully charge.
In general, the wireless version of Raptor V500 Pro retains the core experience of the wireless mechanical keyboard at the 100 yuan price level, making the price of the wireless mechanical keyboard more user-friendly. With its cool and versatile appearance and intimate splash proof design, it is very suitable for the first wireless keyboard for students or newcomers in the workplace.
