SteelSeries Apex Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard


SteelSeries Apex Pro Review The Apex Pro’s frame is built from aircraft-grade
aluminum alloy. Instead of having a typical black finish,
it sports more of a black steel color, which contrasts well with the per-key RGB lighting. When I pulled the Apex Pro out of the box,
I noticed right away that it was relatively light, but the chassis still felt sturdy. For a keyboard with plenty of features, the
Apex Pro discards the top row that some gaming keyboards have. Instead, the Apex Pro fits its functions into
a few F keys, and in the empty space that most gaming keyboards tend not to use. Some gamers may prefer to have discrete buttons,
but severing the top row allows the Apex Pro to be more compact sleek, even. SteelSeries didn’t put just any mechanical
switches in the Apex Pro; the company made its own. Meet the OmniPoint Switch: A mechanical switch
with adjustable actuation force. Keys have to travel to a certain point before
they actuate. In most keyboards there isn’t a simple way
to change that fixed point without tearing the peripheral open. With the Apex Pro, you can adjust the actuation
force of the OmniPoint switches to anywhere between 0.4 mm and 3.6 mm, which translates
to a 1 to 10 scale in the SteelSeries Engine app. If you set your keys to 1, you can activate
your switch with barely a press, while setting them to 10 requires you to depress the key
fully. The best part is that you can set 61 individual
keys at different actuation forces. Gaming on the Apex Pro felt surprisingly good,
especially since I was convinced that Cherry MX Blue switches were the most comfortable
way to game. However, the OmniPoint Switches are a fierce
competitor. When I put my skills to the test in Overwatch’s
Lucio Ball game mode, I sucked but my movements nevertheless felt fluid because of how responsive
the keys were. Kindly see the description for this Amazon
