Low-Profile Keys
Introducing the SteelSeries Apex, a gaming keyboard designed with low-profile, fast-action keys which allow owners to react quickly, move strategically and gain the competitive edge.

Superior Anti-Ghosting
The SteelSeries Apex gaming keyboard supports anti-ghosting for 20 keys located in the most-used gaming areas on the keyboard. Out of these 20 capable keys, 6 can be used simultaneously, allowing those key presses to register and without locking the keyboard. These keys are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Q, W, E, R, A, S, D, F, L-Ctrl, L-Shift, Space, and the four arrow keys.

Macros Galore
The Apex gives you 88 more ways to win. 22 independent macro keys are each capable of up to 4 layers (via layer select keys), for a total of 88 potential macros. Of course, much of the keyboard is also programmable making for an enormous total of 504 programmable keys. And to top it off the macro keys above the F-keys are raised up for easy access and combinations.

Fast Return to WASD
Small bumps on the W-key provide a faster return to WASD. When you quickly have to type a message or execute a command, we want to make sure that you find your way back to WASD as quickly as possible without having to look.

Extra Keys
We wanted to give you even more control with Apex so we added an array of other keys. Independent media and volume keys provide instant access to media control and more. Two more arrow keys give extra directional convenience. The SteelSeries key allows you to access special functions like disabling the Windows key.

This fully packed oversized keyboard is amazing. It has so many bells and whistles you will find yourself playing with all the features before actually using the keyboard. Build quality is brilliant as is the software involved. Reviews choice as it offers so many features and the backlit colours are excellent.


For my personal use, its too big.
