AGON by AOC expands its portfolio with various products, including keyboards, mice, mousepads, and headsets. With the AGON AGK700, the brand introduces its flagship mechanical gaming keyboard. Even at first glance, you can see that the full-size keyboard has a lot to offer, thanks to its numerous control elements. Significant features like anti-ghosting, n-key rollover, USB passthrough, and programmable RGB lighting are all included.

EXTRA FEATURES PROVIDE MORE COMFORT

The range of functions has also been expanded with five dedicated macro keys on the left side. With these, preferred key or action sequences can be quickly and easily programmed and activated at the touch of a button to gain advantages when gaming. There is a USB 2.0 passthrough on the back for easy connection of additional devices.  

Media control including volume knob

In addition, AGON by AOC ships the keyboard with a removable, softly padded wrist rest covered in faux leather to minimize wrist strain. The magnetic attachment ensures that the rest can be attached or removed flexibly and in seconds. To further enhance comfort, fold-out rubberized feet are integrated into the back to change the tilt angle of the keyboard.

TECHNOLOGIES FOR GAMERS

Since the AGON AGK700 is primarily aimed at gamers, AGON by AOC also integrates all relevant technologies. The integrated n-key rollover ensures that all keystrokes are registered correctly - no matter how many keys you press simultaneously, all inputs arrive reliably. Combined with the anti-ghosting feature, this also ensures that only the keys that are actually pressed are transmitted to the system and not neighboring keys. 

TOP-QUALITY THANKS TO CHERRY MX RGB SWITCHES

To meet the demanding requirements of gamers, AGON by AOC relies on our CHERRY MX switches for the AGON AGK700. The gaming keyboard is available with our CHERRY MX RGB Red. The MX RGB Red offers a linear, smooth switching characteristic that requires only 45 centiNewtons of operating force to actuate, making them ideal for quick typing.

The AGON AGK700 also features single-key RGB lighting that can be synchronized with selected AGON by AOC monitors and other gaming gear, provided they support "Light FX". Instead of synchronization, it is also possible to program custom colors and effects via the intuitive "G-Menu" software or in real-time via the extra buttons on the top of the AGON AGK700. Other functions of the application include key programming, macro management, and profile management.

CONCLUSION

The AGON AGK700 is a true gaming keyboard flagship due to its extensive feature set. Not only do the high-quality workmanship and the aluminum top plate ensure a classy appearance, but also the numerous integrated technologies allow comfortable, reliable gaming. The AGON AGK700 also leaves hardly anything to be desired in terms of customization. In addition to the adjustable RGB lighting, the gaming keyboard also has five dedicated macro keys that can be assigned complex key combinations. On top of that, there is a high comfort level, for example, thanks to the magnetic, softly padded wrist rest and the USB passthrough on the back.
