They are made of simple layers that are easy and inexpensive to manufacture at the factory, but the typing experience does not have the same level of quality nor durability as mechanical keyboards do. Mechanical keyboards are more expensive because of the complicity to make them and the materials used in them. However, the feeling to use that keyboard is better, they are also more durable and they are faster. The best keyboard for CSGO definitely has to be mechanical.
Low price and low-quality keyboards have a problem called keyboard ghosting. What is that? Thas why you need to look for a keyword that has high Anti-ghosting. What is Anti-ghosting in a gaming keyboard? Anti-ghosting is software added to keyboards that helps them prevent anti ghostings.
Some of the keyboards with Anti-ghosting even have the ability to support as many simultaneous key presses as there are keys on the keyboard. You have probably heard for macro-keys. Those keys are additional keys on a keyboard. You can program that macro keys to do whatever you want. It is possible to do that just by pressing one key if you have macro keys on your keyboard. You can program each macro key for a different buy, full buy, AWP buy, anti-eco buy, half buy, and eco buy.
It is easier to control your in-game economy because you know the exact cost of each buy. Those macro keys can be used to program some simple actions outside of the game, which can come in handy too. It can only reduce the time of buy but you always have enough time.
All in all, it is useful but not so much. However, it is nice to see a keyboard with RGB lighting. We all know that wireless technology improved over the years and they work like a charm. However, I personally prefer wired keyboards for gaming and I would stick to that.
I am a bit of a conservative guy when it comes to that. I also have another low-budget wireless keyboard that I use when I want to connect my PC to a TV and just relax on a couch while watching a movie or something like that. It is up to you. This is the number one keyboard on our list. Why is that? This is a wired keyboard that is both simple and reliable. It also has 6 macro keys that can be programmed however you like.
As for the anti-ghosting, this is one of a few keyboards that have a perfectly advanced anti-ghosting system. The design of this keyboard is also unique. All in all, this keyboard has everything we mentioned before and it is the best keyboard for CSGO money can buy. For those who prefer keyboards without NumPad, this is the best choice for you. Or even mice? Well, they are going to do their best. Before I even start talking about the packaging, there is a small viewing hole on the box, which allows you to press down on the keys, the first thing I noticed was, nothing.
Nothing you might be thinking, really, well yeah, nothing. When it comes to mechanical keyboards the keys are always loud when being pressed, these keys are not, it's like using any normal keyboard with the benefits of mechanical. Steelseries have always known how to show off their products and they have done the same here, the front is a huge picture of the keyboard and like I said before a hole to press down on the keys.
The main selling points would be, Customizable, Mechanical, Fastest and individual illumination, all of which are mentioned on the front. It is extremely durable with a million-click lifespan. Its low-profile design, optimized key shape and quick linear action and designed to maximize key press speed and ergonomics so you can play for hours on end in combat. The dual processor architecture gives the keys a dedicated CPU for error-free, fast-action response.
The QS1 mechanical switches feature centred LEDs which deliver even illumination and minimize light bleed between keys. Change your illumination style instantly based on a profile, game mode or with the press of a key. Design your own custom lighting effects or switch among built-in options like pulse, breathe and more. One thing that I know and something I have seen from another gaming peripheral company, colour or should I say illumination, the keyboard boasts Steelseries have done well with this keyboard, this is from my first thoughts, following their new line of products which have Before you plug-n-play grab yourself the SteelSeries Engine 3 from Since using my Razer Chroma Mouse, I have been macroing buttons to make games, not easier, but more accessible, as most of the time, you will find game developers assign keys that are all over the damn keyboard and does not make your gaming experience, that much fun.
I am hoping though that more game developers bring Gamesense to their games, as SteelSeries is one of the main gaming peripheral companies on the block and game scene does make gaming more fun and colorful. Gaming with this keyboard is a joy, with its almost silent keys, lighting system, macroing and its just great build quality. I can tell you now, the keyboard never missed a keystroke, even when I press the key lightly the APEX M picked it up.
Maybe they meant something else, as a keyboard is only as fast as its user, maybe it's about key response, based on my, light clicks maybe it makes sense to say that it picks up my light clicks, not like other keyboards. So it has to be down to the reaction time of the switches they have used, the time it takes for a key when pressed to reset for another keystroke. Making your life colourful is what Playing the Moving towards extras, how do you fancy some more USB ports…?
They have also assigned all cabling to the back of the keyboard, which in effect helps with cable routing and something I love from Steelseries the Braided Cord, is also used so no tangled wires. The Apex M is a piece of art, refined, touched up and given to us.
Dark, yet vibrant, sleek but bold, a keyboard that stands out in a crowd, a true wonder of our world, the gaming world. I have seen Steelseries create the best Headset in the world, that beats all the competition with ease, I have seen them make great keyboards from the original Apex to this one.
This is where SteelSeries need to focus on, why? All their mice are the same, same design different colour, create mice with more buttons, more colour variations, finger rest positioning, different design, look at the competition and improve.
Showing 0 comments. There was a problem loading the comments at the moment. I picked up this keyboard about 6 weeks ago. When I first got it I was super excited. The M is very nice to type on - although it doesn't quite feel like a mechanical keyboard it still has a better feel to using it than a rubber dome model. The low profile keys are flat and uniform, which is great for me; I type in Dvorak and I love the fact I can rearrange the keys into an alternative layout because they are all an identical shape, size and fitting.
This makes it the only backlit mechanical keyboard in Dvorak that I've owned. A lot of keyboard manufacturers insist on angling their keys, so they only fit into 1 place cleanly, which makes rearranging the keys impossible.
The lights also shine clearly through the keys without much bleeding, and the software to customize the lighting is pretty easy to use. Unfortunately this is where the good points about this keyboard end. What it makes up for in function, it loses out on in manufacturing quality. The key caps are extremely shoddy in construction.
Fortunately I was able to obtain replacement key caps the store had a defective one in the back which I could nick key caps off I've been typing and gaming with low profile keys for years. This keyboard is exactly what I have been looking for, the combination of low profile key caps with quiet mechanical switches! There is no other keyboard like it.
Yes, it's over priced but it's definitely recommended if your requirements match mine. Apex M has much quieter keys without that bottoming out sound. They still feel mechanical and a joy to type on. I use my computer not only for gaming so typing is also a priority for me.
This fits the bill just great. The lighting is much better, the LED is situated in the middle of the switch, there is no light spill whatsoever. It looks much better than Corsair's offerings. The Corsair had this ridiculously thick rubber cable which is hard to bend and route. The Apex M comes with a sturdy, braided cable.
Much better to route through the monitor stand and around behind the desk and hide. The SteelSeries software is much easier to use compared to Corsairs. Customisation is straight forward. The two USB ports are better than the single on the Corsair. The oversized spacebar is just superb to use in gaming.
It relieves strain in the hand for sure. Great build quality contrary to reports read further. Now, some reviewers complained of flexing however my version does not flex at all. It's as rigid as the Corsair. I acquired my Apex M from Amazon Germany.
Perhaps SteelSeries modified the production and added some reinforcement? I use Cherry MX switches at work so I am very well familiar with the two. I've also used the Romer G switches from Logitech built by Omron and they are also rather nice. However, I must confess I much prefer these QS1 switches to anything else on the market, and that includes the Cherry MX silent which I have also tried.
The combination of the QS1 switch and low profile keys cannot be beat if you are coming from a membrane keyboard and want a similar experience with all the benefits of a mechanical switch and feel. One person found this helpful. I would like to thank SteelSeries for yet again sending me the keyboard for review. I should note the version I got sent has the UK Layout keyboard. Full specification and a description of the keyboard can be found on SteelSeries' website.
Build quality Before getting into the build quality of the M, I would like to describe the package contents. I felt the contents were really lacking, especially for a keyboard that's quite expensive. In the package you do receive the following: Rubber keyboard riser Apple key replacement Manuals SteelSeries sticker With what's included, I really like the rubber risers that are included.
It's exactly what was included in the original Apex, and it's nice to see it being used by SteelSeries again in the M It might not seem like much, but those plastic keyboard risers can get broken relatively easy and by having a rubber riser, it prevents any breakage happening and doubles up as giving the keyboard some grip on slippery surfaces.
Now moving on to the build quality of the keyboard itself. First of all, the keyboard is connected and powered by a gold-plated USB. I would have liked to see USB 3. On a separate note the cable that connects the keyboard is braided, and it's nice to see this type of cable being used by SteelSeries.
Now looking more closely at the keyboard itself, it was nice to see some key features being utilised. What really caught my eye, literally speaking, was the SteelSeries button, that transforms the F5 to F12 keys into dedicated media keys.
What I like about this is not only the fact that it is super responsive and colour illuminated, but that SteelSeries have thought of a way to integrate the feature, without clogging up the keyboard - as with the original Apex, with all its Macros, it meant it was overly big - and its dedicated media keys despite being useful added to the clutter on the keyboard. To add to all of this, the clever inclusion of having the Windows lock there is very well thought out.
By pressing the SteelSeries button and then the left Windows key, it does a Win-Lock, something that's useful for gamers alike. Moving on is the 6 programmable keys that can be found on the left-hand side of the keyboard. These are pretty standard nowadays, however I was disappointed with the lack of an easy mapping function for these keys.
Instead you are presented by a long list of different options and a Macro Recorder. Now, the most important part of this review and the build quality section, the QS1 mechanical switch. The QS1 is an in-house developed switch, which unlike other manufacturers that went away from Cherry MX switches and are using Chinese manufacturer Kailth's switches whilst naming it as their own in their keyboards - SteelSeries have gone above and beyond in creating their own switch.
This is nice to see as it brings another mechanical switch to the market. It's near impossible for someone like me to test how reliable and accurate the switch is, however SteelSeries have quoted rate of million actuations, whilst also proclaiming itself as the "World's Fastest Keyboard" by having a lower actuation point 1.
This all means that it's softer to press and responds "quicker". But to me personally, that doesn't make it faster. To me the term "fast" is the speed of which the key is pressed to the PC registering it. I'm not sure there's a test or one that I could realistically carry out - but I can't imagine it being faster than the Cherry MX switches. In a nutshell, due to the switch being more easily pressed, at the same rated force of 45CN, it means it would seem faster to respond as you have to have to press with less effort.
Make it as you will, but that's the specs of the switch, but in realist terms, how does it perform? Well I found the switch to be very punctual, very easy to press and extremely responsive with excellent anti-ghosting capabilities.
