Steelseries Apex Pro Keyboard Review

OLED Display Options

The OLED display hides many tricks up its sleeve. A long press upon the button brings up the menu and from there you have five options with plenty of submenus too, all controlled with the wheel acting and choice and selection, whilst the main button acts as the back button. There are simple methods of adjusting the lighting whether you want to scroll through the main colours most people will use, adjust the brightness, or even flick to one of the pre-designed setups.

Cue Mr Jimi Hendrix.

As well as the lighting you can control most things from the OLED display including your macros, profiles and even a factory reset if you were so inclined.

Finally the key actuation distance, the show piece of the Apex Pro, is easily adjustable from on board as well as within the Steelseries Engine software. Perfect if you require different sensitivity for different applications.

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
