I’ve always had the idea of reviewing these products individually and I may do that in the future but as of right now, the recurring question from some of our readers is “is the set good?” and for almost $400 or just under Php20,000, I would understand the concern. ASUS did offer these products in a promotion during launch but with interest still in limbo due to close proximity with the ROG PNK edition release as well as being closer to the stock ROG color set, the hype is not as intense like it was during the heat of the PNK edition.
That said, the question remains unanswered and for me, I say its worth. Despite individual nitpicks, all the components of the ROG Electro Punk gaming peripheral set are individually good and together, there’s no gestalt form to bring out a functionally superior entity but to quantify a peripheral ecosystem is quite the challenge. For the most part, any PC gamer would choose his or her own peripherals and that’s that but there exists PC builders who adhere to strict brand loyalty. It is these people that ASUS and ROG is looking to to offer these products. To basically confer their undying allegiance to ROG and to a specific color theme.

In closing, if it makes you feel good I can agree with that decision and as a personal owner of this set at this point, I don’t have the PC to fit with the peripherals but its definitely something more livelier that what I had before with a mixed set and people have definitely been noticing the theme much more than my previous RGB keyboard and holey mouse. So, if that’s something that you’re into this is definitely the easiest way to a hotpink route without getting pricier keycap set and repainting your other gear.
The ROG PNK peripheral set definitely had a larger marketing backing its campaign hence its more prolific in some streamers. The ROG Electro Punk seems to be a more subtle release and that’s expected as this more of a palette swap rather than a full-on recolor like the previous PNK colorways. Still, with a much more mature product set, the ROG Electro Punk gaming peripherals offer better overall value and whether you get it individually or a set, you’ll have a great gaming experience.
The ROG Strix Electro Punk gaming peripheral set is backed by a 1-year standard warranty from ASUS and receives a collective B2G Recommended Award as well as a B2G Silver Award!
