It's always interesting when a company that makes one specific product decides to jump into a new market and manufacture something different. AOC is the company we are looking at today, as they will be diving headfirst into the peripheral market.

Kitguru was invited to check out AOC's latest monitors at an even held in London. Throughout the exhibition, they found a bunch of AOC keyboards and mice. AOC is originally a monitor manufacturer, but they will now be stepping into keyboards and mice. Firstly, we have the AGON GK500. This keyboard sports a detachable plastic wrist rest, RGB lighting, Outemu switches and comes it at the cost of $75 USD.

Moving onto the more higher-end keyboard, the AGON AGK700. This keyboard is much more expensive than the GK500 as it comes with Cheery MX Blue switches (Cherry MX Red coming soon), dedicated macro buttons, a plush leatherette wrist rest, and a dial at the top of the board. Both keyboards support AOC's new G-Tools software for customization purposes. The AGK700 comes it at a price of $161 USD.

Let's talk, mice. AOC isn't making extremely expensive mice (yet?), as they are starting with the GM500 that only costs $30 USD. The GM500 comes with PixArt's PMW 3325 sensor, Omron switches, a 1.8m braided cable, and a single DPI button.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
