  • IP32 water resistant - prevents accidental damage from liquid spills
  • 10-zone RGB Illumination - gorgeous color schemes and reactive effects
  • Whisper quiet gaming switches - nearly silent use for 20 million low-friction keypresses
  • Premium magnetic wrist rest - provides full palm support and comfort
  • Dedicated multimedia controls - adjust volume and settings on the fly

  • Fast-action keys
    With the Apex, the low-profile design coupled with the fast-action keys allows the user to react more quickly, gaining a competitive edge.
  • Customization
    SteelSeries Engine 3 has you covered when it comes to customizing lighting, macros, and even more Apex options. The software ensures you are able to completely customize your Apex keyboard.
  • 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.
  • Reliable key strikes, easy navigation and a cache of extra keys
    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 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.
  • Easy 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, SteelSeries want to make sure that you find your way back to WASD as quickly as possible without having to look.
  • Extra keys
    SteelSeries wanted to give you even more control with Apex so SteelSeries 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.
  • Comprehensive macros
    The Apex gives you even more ways to win thanks to 22 additional macro keys. You can even record macros on the fly.
  • Plug and play
    There's no need to install software in order to use the Apex. However, you will miss out on a lot of customization options. Just plug it in if you need to get right to the gaming. The keyboard will still work, including a few features like the disabling of the windows key and more.
  • Activezone lighting
    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 profiles, to quickly determine which macro profile is enabled. SteelSeries suggest grouping 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 feet
    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 two USB ports to your setup giving you quick access to storage right on your Apex keyboard.
