Conclusion: As we speak i consider 3 gaming peripherals manufacturers as the top in this industry and SteelSeries is amongst them for a reason so i never had any doubts about the success of their APEX gaming keyboard. The materials used are of high quality, it has a very sleek design, it's very easy to use (largely thanks to the fact that it has no unnecessary bells and whistles on it) and it offers many features that serious gamers will find extremely useful such as a total of 88...

Excerpt: We have just posted up our review of the SteelSeries APEX Gaming Keyboard . This keyboard is not a mechanical keyboard, but SteelSeries has managed to put together an amazing product with nice software, a ton of macros and some great lighting customization. If you're looking for a new gaming keyboard, and want something that doesn't sound like your digging through a box of LEGO, the SteelSeries APEX is worth a look. Check it out in our full review .
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. The short travel along with the keyboard being non-mechanical makes typing really quiet. In fact, in game "rage" typing remains exceptionally quiet as well.
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
Summary: Based on rubber domes, the new SteelSeries Apex keyboard comes with a lot of interesting features like the ActiveZone Lighting system, extra directional arrows, raised macro keys, 4 separate layers, anti-ghosting for the most frequently used keys in games and more.
Excerpt: Like a juggernaut on your desk, the SteelSeries Apex keyboard will command attention with its large size, multicoloured lighted zones, and vast array of macro keys. You'll feel like a starship captain with an advanced console at your fingertips--if you can fit it on your desk, that is. See Group test: what's the best keyboard?

Summary: The SteelSeries Apex does a good job of securing its place as a premium, membrane-based keyboard. While the design and illumination is compelling, it may be tempting to pay a bit more to get a mechanical keyboard instead.
Pros: Practical layout and implementation of macros keys, Great additions such as multi-zone illumination and oversized space bar
Cons: Integrated wrist rest leaves no room for adjustment, A bit pricey for a membrane-based keyboard
Summary: For a non-mechanical keyboard the Steelseries Apex works really well and is supported by some excellent intuitive software which made the process of adding macros or adjusting the various lighting effects a dream.
Excerpt: Desuden har det to USB-porte på bagsiden, og det lange USB-kabel er pakket ind i stof. Det er et gaming-tastatur til den kræsne bruger. Husk i øvrigt at måle pladsen på skrivebordet. Tastaturet fylder 56 centimeter i bredden.
