沙巴体育平台 www.yousuperb.com Philips and 3B Tech this week have begun to sell Philips-branded computer peripherals in the USA. The lineup of products includes relatively inexpensive keyboards and mice aimed at gamers and featuring appropriate aesthetics like RGB backlighting. Philips-branded keyboards and mice have been available in China for a while, and now they are formally available in the USA

At present, Amazon sells 13 Philips-branded peripherals: wired or wireless keyboards, mice, and combos. All of the products are aimed at gamers and carry either entry-level or mainstream price tags. Numerous keyboards feature mechanical switches, which are rare in these segments, which will attract attention of those who want quality tactile feedback, but aren't necessarily looking for a premium-priced device.

The top-of-the-range Philips-trademarked keyboard currently on sale is the SPK8614. The unit uses custom "Blue" switches that are either made by Philips, or are produced by a switch maker specially for the brand’s keyboards. The switches feature a 2-mm actuation and require 60G/58.8 CN of force. The keyboard also has a detachable wrist rest, Ambiglow Chroma FX RGB accent lighting, customizable key lightmaps, media controls as well as an aluminum top plate. The Philips SPK8614 keyboard is now available from Amazon for $39.99.

The most advanced Philips-branded gaming mouse sold officially in the USA is the SPK9413, which is equipped with a 2,400-DPI optical sensor and features a 500 Hz polling. The mouse has six programmable buttons as well as Ambiglow RGB breathing light effects. The product is sold for $16.99 at Amazon. Meanwhile, Newegg also offers an advanced Momentum SPK9842 mouse featuring a 16,400 DPI laser sensor, seven programmable buttons, and RGB lights. The product can be ordered via Newegg from China for $96.09.

Being among the best-known high-tech brands, Philips produces a variety of products and also licenses its name to third parties for goods that it does not make itself. This is exactly the case with the peripherals carrying the trademark: the products are made by Shenzhen Youyuan Hongye Electronic based in China that holds an appropriate license. Previously, these devices officially were available only in China, but now the company is expanding their availability to other markets.

    The CD-i wasn't insulting enough, now they're making a P.P. brand Reply

    I would be very wary about purchasing anything Phillips or LG since they are both subsidiaries. Right now there are multiple class action lawsuits against LG for their failure prone overpriced refrigerators. I had a brand new LG (model LSFXC2496D) which died after only 17 months of use. No amount of emails, calls, or escalations to LG would return any support other than another dismissive reply seeking more money for repairs. This was for a refrigerator which had a posted 10-yr warranty on their linear inverter compressor which fails at very alarming rates. Phillips I would avoid also having been burnt with one of their flat panel displays which died after only 3 years of use. Samsung however is bullet proof and I sing their praises continually Reply

    What kind of dumb logic is this? Because TV died after 3 years the whole brand is trash? Same with LG, WTF?
    How about Samsung phones that blew up? Why are you still buying Samsung if their phones injure people?
    Things break all the time, you can buy something and its DOA, so what the brand is not reliable now?

    They only blow up if you shoot them, though. That's why it's "bullet-proof" - it's in the name! Reply

    I seem to remember a court case where Samsung got in trouble for paying students to astroturf.

    Looks like they never stopped.

    Samsung????? The Samsung 7 Slate featured a screen that LITERALLY fell away from the casing. Around that time their top of the line laptop had wireless issues. They did not fix either machine and simply released something new.

    Samsung, like nearly ALL the others, have good products and bad products.

    If Philips wants to sell RGB crap they at least should launch monitors with ambilight. Reply
  • patel21 - Thursday, August 22, 2019 - link

    Yup, I would buy a decent spec'd monitor with ambient light. Reply
  • FreckledTrout - Thursday, August 22, 2019 - link

    Yeah i'm surprised that isn't much more of a thing. Having a nice built in bias light on a monitor would be lovely. This is how you mage RGB useful. Reply

    Just what we need, yet ANOTHER brand label on the same old RGB keyboards and mice from one of the world's three nameless factories that build-to-order for production plant lacking companies. Reply
