SteelSeries Apex review

 

You'll notice right away just how large the Apex is. The palm rest isn't an optional accessory as it is with many other keyboards, so it comes out of the box in one large unit. The length is also exaggerated by the many macro and media keys on either...

The SteelSeries Apex was made with gaming enthusiasts in mind, from the flashy customizable colours and macro keys to the addition of diagonal directional keys to minimize key presses. Once you've got your fancy new gaming rig, you'll want a keyboard...

Steelseries Apex Gaming Keyboard Review - FunkyKit

 

First I want to thank Steelseries for providing me with their new Apex Gaming keyboard, its a really nice keyboard with illuminated keys you can customize how you want to.

When I first saw the apex i had something like this is one of the most beautiful keyboards I’ve ever seen!

Steelseries Apex Gaming Keyboard Review

 

For a non-mechanical keyboard the Steelseries Apex works really well and is supported by some excellent intuitive software which made the process of adding macros or adjusting the various lighting effects a dream.

SteelSeries Apex gaming keyboard

 

A flashy and comprehensive keyboard that's well suited to gaming

Practical layout and implementation of macros keys ; Great additions such as multi-zone illumination and oversized space bar

Integrated wrist rest leaves no room for adjustment ; A bit pricey for a membrane-based keyboard

The SteelSeries Apex does a good job of securing its place as a premium, membrane-based keyboard. While the design and illumination is compelling, it may be tempting to pay a bit more to get a mechanical keyboard instead.

SteelSeries Apex

 

The SteelSeries Apex is a big keyboard that is packed with features to take your game to a new level, all for a more affordable price than the competition.

Dozens of programmable controls. Four independent custom lighting zones. Tactile anchoring on the W key. Additional diagonal arrow keys. Dedicated media controls. Extra-large space bar. USB Pass-thrus.

Silicone dome switches.

Conclusion Given the dozens of customizable commands, the many gamer-friendly features, and the quality design, the SteelSeries Apex is one of the best gaming keyboards we've reviewed, in spite of the fact that it's not available with mechanical...

SteelSeries Apex Gaming Keyboard Capsule Review

 

After the hype from Corsair's K70 RGB since its announcement early this year, mechanical RGB keyboards became all the rage. Several companies even managed to beat Corsair to the punch and release an RGB mechanical keyboard first, such as the tenkeyless...

And these are only the mechanical keyboards that threaten the SteelSeries Apex; there are even more membrane keyboard at lower prices (too many to effectively list). They do not have the number of extra keys or the RGB backlighting that the Apex does,...

The SteelSeries Apex brings to the table a unique implementation of backlight color as well as a ridiculous amount of macro control in a way that's sure to delight.
