Reviewers from Laptopmag have found the following[***]:
For $199, the SteelSeries Apex Pro offers an excellent per-key actuation feature. The Apex Pro discards the top row (above the function keys) that some gaming keyboards have. The OmniPoint switches feature a 0.7 ms response time, which is significantly faster than Cherry MX Speed Switches.
Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
The SteelSeries Apex Pro is an outstanding keyboard for gamers but it's quite versatile too. If you prefer a simple keyboard with outstanding typing quality, check out the IBM Model M. The SteelSeries has a customizable OLED screen, USB passthrough, and its Omnipoint switches provide a better typing experience than the Linear Optical switches on our unit.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The SteelSeries Apex Pro is one of the best gaming keyboards we've ever had the pleasure to use. You can custom-tune the actuation of most of the keys on this keyboard, dialing in exactly how you want your typing - and obviously, gaming - experience to feel. The key caps are elevated above the keyboard deck, giving the keyboard a very modern and clean aesthetic.
Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The SteelSeries Apex Pro is a premium gaming keyboard with customisable actuation points for every key. Each key features an actuation point ranging from 0.4 to 3.6mm, which can be customised to your liking. The aluminium-alloy frame has been described as ‘aircraft’ grade, meaning it could likely withstand a lot of punishment. You can customise the aforementioned OLED display with a number of different statistics, or even modify it yourself to display bespoke images or text.
