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.
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.
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.
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.
Stylish And Intuitive Design
The combination of 16.8 million color illumination, low-profile keys and sleek lines come together giving Apex beautiful form and optimized function. We built in a few more features to make Apex the complete solution.
The Apex features 5 independent color zones that are each capable of 16.8 million colors. These can be customized to create a unique color scheme for each of your macro layers. This allows you to quickly determine which macro layer is enabled and helps finding groups of your macros according to their color. Imagine a yellow theme for harvest macros, blue theme for defend macros, red for attack macros and more. The possibilities are limitless.
Swappable rubber feet allow you to find the most comfortable gaming angle for those long gaming sessions. You can raise or lower Apex depending on which feet you decide to game with.
Integrated USB Hub
An integrated USB hub adds to two USB ports to your setup giving you quick access to storage right on your Apex keyboard.
Under the Hood
SteelSeries Engine has you covered when it comes to customizing lighting, macros, and even more Apex options. Or you can plug Apex in and get right to the gaming.
If you want the full Apex experience then SteelSeries Engine is the way to go. Download the software suite for complete control over your keyboard. The options include control over your lighting intensity levels, unlimited macro creation, an unlimited number of profiles, and complete button remapping.
Plug and Play
Theres no need to install software of any kind in order to use the Apex. Without the software many features will still work including disabling of the windows key and more.
