11 November 2013
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: 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 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.
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...
