AOC enters gaming peripheral market

AOC is the next company to enter the gaming peripheral market. Various firms have entered this market over the past decade or so and now the monitor maker is trying its hand at gaming keyboards and mice. You can check out the products at KitGuru.
Starting with the keyboards, up first we have the GK500. This is set to retail for 69.90 Euros (we’ve not yet heard about UK pricing) and it is a full-size board. Offering a detachable plastic wrist rest alongside RGB illuminated keys, what helps set this board apart from the competition is its use of Outemu switches. Keyboard enthusiasts may have heard of Outemu but many people won’t have – in a nutshell, they offer Cherry MX clones at a lower price, which is likely part of the reason AOC can offer this board for 70 Euros. It also sports an aluminium top plate and will support AOC’s new G-Tools software.
