Steelseries Apex Pro Keyboard Review

Introduction

There are many brands who produce peripherals to try and tempt you to part with your hard-earned cash, and anyone who has had to purchase a new device for their system will understand the myriad of options available. One of the few companies that has been consistently producing high quality peripherals whilst also managing to keep innovating is Steelseries.

You're probably most familiar with them from their Rival mouse range, Arctis and Siberia headsets or even the stone cold hall-of-fame classic that was the Sensei mouse. Their keyboard range has been a little more 'out there' with their models flitting between the robust and fairly simple models such as the Steelseries 7G, through to the insanity that was the Steelseries Switch with its entirely changeable keyboard layouts.

More recently they have been producing a range of keyboards under their Apex label and it's the range-topping flagship Apex that we have for you today in the form of the Steelseries Apex Pro. It has all the usual modern keyboard features such as RGB lighting and USB pass-through, but it also has a few tricks up its sleeves of its own. The key switches themselves have an adjustable actuation point, whilst at the top right - following on from the hugely successful Rival 700 - there is an OLED display. Let's not get ahead of ourselves though and tell you rather than show you when we can do both. Onwards.

What's the price though? I feel like this could easily cost around 200 EUR :XQuote

It's $200 in the US so you're probably spot on with that estimate.Quote

Can you set up actuation per key or is it a general setting for all keys?
I ask as id say i'd want less response on secondary action keys (like use or reload or something) than I would on say WASD and Space. But i'd expect to pay a fortune for this TBH lolQuote

I'd like to see a modern take on the old SteelSeries Merc Stealth Gaming Keyboard.
I still use mine but can't connect to the new Steel Series software. Just the old Z Board software.
Maybe a new keyboard where the gaming keys could detach and be bluetooth.
Then you could push the normal keyboard section forward and have more room for your hands.
The Merc Stealth Gaming Keys are much more comfortable. Especially if you have grown up hands.
There is only so much you can do to a bog standard keyboard. You have to innovate!Quote

From VonBlade (review author)

The actuation level of the main keys (a-z, numbers etc, but not arrows, F-keys or numpad, imagine a TKL without the F-keys) is per key.Quote
