SteelSeries APEX [RAW] Gaming Keyboard Review
9 October 2013
Conclusion: The APEX [RAW] may not share some of its brothers unique characteristics/features but it still has the same high quality build, the same sleek design, 32 total macro key commands, low-profile keys that are obviously faster to use than regular height ones, the same anti-ghosting feature, rubber feet...
Pros: - Build Quality, - Low-Profile Keys, - 17 Macro Keys (34 Macro Commands Total), - 8-Level White Illumination, - Anti-Ghosting Technology (Up To 6 Simultaneous Key Presses), - Enlarged Space Bar, - Removable Rubber Feet, - Price (For Some)
Summary: Not every gamer has a king's ransom to spend on gaming peripherals, nor do they need a fat stack of cash with products like the SteelSeries Apex [RAW]. For $70 MSRP, the [RAW] offers a fair bit of gaming prowess for your buck.
Pros: Relatively Affordable:, Raised Macro Keys:, Extra Arrows:, Bumpy W Key:, How Many Macros Would You Like?:
Conclusion: If you want the dizzle-dazzle of a gaming product, stay clear of the Steelseries Apex RAW. The keyboard is a champion performer but it holds no frills that will make you go wow. The Apex RAW is a well built, simple looking, no nonsense gaming keyboard that will have you moving, and throwing macros...
Conclusion: At first glance, the Apex [RAW] is just another membrane keyboard offering little in the way of innovation and to some it may even seem a little expensive for what it is, but you really shouldn’t judge a book by its cover as there are many little touches that make this one of the best membrane...
Pros: Great design and build quality, Great macro options and extra keys, Software works with other Steelseries products, Nice typing action
Conclusion: Nonetheless, we’re still somewhat in two minds about the Apex Raw. On the one hand it is a sensible lower-price version of the Apex, with a reasonably well balanced selection of features that really do work when it comes to both typing and gaming - it's classic SteelSeries 'no frills' stuff.
Summary: Not everybody jumped on the mechanical keyboard’s bandwagon. For those who prefer membrane models, the Apex [RAW] is an efficient no-frills product that sticks to the basics. The ease of programming and the key layout make this peripheral ideal for macro enthusiasts.
Pros: Lots of well-positioned macro keys, Nice option for those who dislike mechanical keyboards, Intelligent software associates macros to games and applications, Keys with different shapes make typing easier, Full illumination, Elegant design
Cons: Rubber feet take time to adjust, Lack of spare USB ports to hook up other peripherals
Summary: I'm going to start with some serious honesty here. I have gotten used to mechanical keyboards, and now I really don't like using rubber dome keyboards all that much. I usually go through a couple weeks of testing in games, keeping up with IMs and such, maybe even some random Facebook'ing here and...
Excerpt: 0 Flares 0 Flares × Apex – noun [C] /ˈeɪ.peks/ the highest point or most successful part of something. SteelSeries makes its ambitions bright and clear with the name of their latest keyboard, The Apex [RAW].
Conclusion: O teclado é, provavelmente, o periférico que mais usamos quando nos sentamos à frente do pc e é sempre bom que seja uma peça confortável de usar uma vez que poderemos ter de o utilizar por várias horas. A Steelseries criou um produto a pensar não só nos jogadores mas também no utilizador comum.
