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...

In terms of feel, key travel and comfort, the SteelSeries Apex feels just like any good membrane keyboard. Of course it lacks the travel and feeling of mechanical keys; the keys of the Apex feel mushy and need to bottom out in order to register, which...

SteelSeries Apex


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.

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.

SteelSeries Apex Gaming Keyboard Review


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.

SteelSeries Apex


The SteelSeries Apex is one of the most colorful – and most capable – keyboards we've seen. Read the full review to find out how color control affects your gaming.

You have extreme customization options through color and key control

This is a membrane keyboard, which means no mechanical switches

Solid design, high-end features and advanced customization make the Apex an attractive gaming keyboard.

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 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


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.

Love this keyboard


The only other problem I had was that some colors would look better than others, but I blame the LEDs they used inside of this keyboard, not any fault on their part.

Multiple layers of macro keys, the lighting zones stay bright and can be adjusted. The thing that hooked me the most about this keyboard had to be the fact that it has a 2-USB port hub at the top of the keyboard to plug in other peripherals. Also, this...

None as far as I can tell! USB ports were sort of my fault >.
