ROG PNK LTD Gear [CES 2019]

It’s 2019. Who would have thought we’re still not over everything pink? At the recently concluded and much talked about Consumer Electronics Show 2019 (CES 2019), Asus introduced the very pretty ROG PNK LTD Gear. Yep, that’s a bunch of powerful peripherals in gentle, soft colors.

In 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue were all over the place. It was, after all, the Pantone Colors of the Year. Everybody thought people would get over that and move on easily.  Truth is, a lot of us are still in love with that gentle pink hue. Pink was such a strong pantone color that even in 2018, millenial pink and rose gold remain to be a much coveted color for gadgets, clothes, accessories, and almost everything else.

This 2019, Asus ROG proves that pink is not going away anytime soon. Yes, we’re way past gender norms and assigning things as feminine and masculine. Pink is for everyone and everything.

The ROG PNK LTD line is said to haven been crafted from ROG’s “desire to change things up by adding a little bit of flair to the products we already love.” And flair it certainly has.

ROG Strix Flare in PINK!

Perhaps the most coveted (and probably most expensive) in the ROG PNK LTD Gear lineup is the ROG Strix Flare PNK LTD.

The ROG Strix Flare PNK LTD is gorgeous.

Pretty, yes? But pretty does not mean boring or weak. The ROG Strix Flare PNK LTD packs the same power, usability, and features as other ROG Strix Flare products.

It comes with the same easy-to-reach media controls on the left with a rubberized volume wheel, ridged for easy scrolling. It has a customizable acrylic insert comes emblazoned with the ROG logo that you can DIY with a blank insert that comes with the keyboard.

Of course it has the per-key RGB lighting can set to go all out on pink. It can also be set into rainbow of colors that can pulse with different effects.

A Pink Mouse? YES, PLEASE!

A pink keyboard goes well, with what else but a pink mouse?

ROG PNK LTD Gladius II Origin pink gaming mouse
The ROG Gladius II Origin PNK LTD is the perfect pink ROG gear to bring around. I want one!

I mean… who would not love to work anywhere with that beauty?

Underneath the pink exterior, the ROG Gladius II Origin PNK LTD packs the same power and functionality as the ROG Gladius II Origin (that the PINK LTD PR funnily calls vanilla, hehe!).

It has the same PixArt 3360 optical sensor that can reach up to 12000 DPI. It has a dedicated DPI switch for easy transitioning between programmed settings for those who use their ROG for both play and work.

All the PNK LTD Gear are, needless to say, available for a limited time only. So the Gladius II Origins PNK LTD is built to last. Underneath the primary buttions are Omron switches rated for 50 million clicks. It comes with a durable braided cable and a second standard cable and pouch for bringing around the pink beauty. As I type this, I am trying to stop my brain from thinking about getting a ROG Gladius II Origins PINK LTD. Who is with me?

Let’s hope ASUS comes up with another link of peripherals in pretty colors by the time your PINK LTD Gladius II wears out. Or better yet, buy more than one. Hoard away if you have the budget for it.
