SteelSeries Apex M500 (US)

Are you about to enter the world of professional gaming peripherals, but are you limited by a budget? Then you might like this mechanical keyboard SteelSeries Apex M500, which provides everything that e-sports players require.

True and tested Cherry MX Red switches, the ability of individual recognition of any number of simultaneous keystrokes (Full Anti-Ghosting and N-Key Roll Over), a resistance of a military tank, an individual blue backlight of every key, and a perfect minimalist functional design. Of course, included with the keyboard is an advanced software for unlimited customisability and creation of macros and profiles. It's simply a great keyboard, which features have been awarded by many positive reviews.

Key features

  • Mechanical gaming switches Cherry MX Red
  • Blue LED backlight under each individual key
  • 100% programmable with SteelSeries Engine
  • Full Anti-Ghosting and N-Key Roll Over to recognise any number of keystrokes
  • Standard American (US) keyboard layout
  • Reinforced steel back plate and extreme durability
  • Cable management and height adjustment
  • Interactive SteelSeries key

Necessary equipment for each player

Cherry MX switches guarantee that your buttons are fully functional with the same response and feedback for more than 50 million clicks. That is more than 5 times longer than the archaic membrane keyboard, and that is without mentioning the differences in the character of the key press.

Each player knows the uncomfortable feeling in a combat frenzy when they are sure that they pressed the key and it has not been registered in the game. M500, therefore, works with any number of simultaneous key presses (Full Anti-Ghosting and N-Key Roll Over).

It does not matter whether it is a first or millionth push, feeling of the key response will be the same as with a new keyboard. Each switch Cherry MX retains the same functional properties over time, which is important for building muscle memory needed to play at the highest level.

The key to success is a design done right

The durability of a keyboard is an essential parameter. SteelSeries Apex M500 was created from the highest quality plastics, and it is reinforced with a steel plate. You can be sure that the keyboard is built to last, and you can concentrate on your performance. Vibrant blue LEDs under each individual key additionally provide excellent visibility of keys even during night battles, while being stylish and decent at the same time. The keyboard even features 3 different breathing mode effects and 4 different levels of brightness.

Standard American (US) layout is a true classic, and keyboard combines it with compact size and standard placement of individual keys, so you will not have to learn anything new, and you can jump straight into the fray. Standardised locks Cheery allow you to change the keycaps for any custom set, whenever you want.

Unlimited customisability

Compared with competing models, keyboard Apex M500 offers a truly monstrous amount of customisability options. You can optimise and relabel any key so that it exactly fits your play style. SteelSeries Engine allows you to create macros using either on-the-fly function, text or buttons. Forget about a limited number of profiles, as you can create any number of them and they will be activated automatically at the start of a game.

Best keyboard I have ever had. And I'm a professional gamer and former typist. Bought it for intense gaming and not disappointed. You cannot change the color of the lighting.
