Tom's Guide
2 October 2014
  • Summary: In spite of some software oddities and the oversight of at least one very useful feature (on-the-fly macro recording), the Apex is still a respectable piece of hardware that justifies its high price tag.
  • Pros: Colorful, customizable design; Better-than-average membrane keys; Lots of extra programmable buttons
  • Cons: Unreliable, confusing installation; Macro recording limitations; Hampers typing speed

SteelSeries Apex Gaming Keyboard Capsule Review

3 January 2014
  • Conclusion: In terms of feel, key travel and comfort, the SteelSeries Apex feels just like any good membrane keyboard. Of course it lacks the travel and feeling of mechanical keys; the keys of the Apex feel mushy and need to bottom out in order to register, which is the way all membrane keyboards work.

SteelSeries APEX Gaming Keyboard

12 December 2013
  • Summary: So how does the SteelSeries Apex Gaming keyboard perform? Well, I found that for me it performs just as well as the mechanical keyboard I was using before the Apex. The keys themselves have a low profile which makes the keystroke travel really short.
  • Pros: Sleek design, Countless lighting options, 88 macros, Two USB ports, Non slip rubber feet, Easy programming, Key strokes are quiet
  • Cons: Hard to keep clean, Rather large, Lacks simple height adjustment

  • Conclusion: Back in the days, I used to visit my cousin in Toronto every year. Actually, I still do, but that is another story. We used to hang out in the den of his house, where he would sit in front of his desktop computer, and I would work away on my laptop.

22 July 2013
  • Conclusion: Overall the Steelseries APEX was a great keyboard to use, with many of it’s features actually being useful as opposed to just a gimmick. The additional macro keys were useful inclusion and the ability to customise the back-lighting was a great touch.
