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 called the SteelSeries Apex M500, which provides everything that gamers need.

The true and tested Cherry MX Red switches the ability to individually recognize any number of simultaneous keystrokes, and a unique backlight of every key with a perfectly minimalist functional design. This is an advanced software for unlimited customization and creation of macros and profiles. It's just a great keyboard, whose features have been rewarded with 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 recognize 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

The Cherry MX switch guarantees that your buttons are fully functional with the same response and feedback for more than 50 million clicks. This is more than 5 times longer than the archaic membrane keyboard, and not to mention the differences in the character of the key press.

Each player knows the uncomfortable feeling in a combat frenzy when they are sure they pressed the right key but it wasn't registered in the game. The M500, therefore, works with a number of simultaneous key presses  (Full Anti-Ghosting and N-Key Roll Over).

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

The key to success is a design done right

The durability of a keyboard is an essential parameter. The SteelSeries Apex M500 was created from the highest quality plastics and 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.

The standard American (US) layout is a true classic, and the keyboard combines it with a 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. Standardized locks allow you to change the keycaps for any custom set, whenever you want.

Unlimited customisability

In comparison to competing models, the Apex M500 keyboard offers a truly monstrous amount of customizability options. You can optimize and relay any key so that it fits your style perfectly. 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.
