SteelSeries is known for its variety of gaming accessories that includes: headphones, mice, controllers and even keyboards. The firm has recently announced a new addition to its keyboard line with the Apex M750.
To start off, the mechanical keyboard is built using aerospace aluminum that is meant to provide durability, along with a sleek look in its matte black finish. This is combined with the company's third-generation mechanical switches, the QX2 switch, which is relatively silent when in use and can deliver a fast and consistent response. Furthermore, the switch has been tested and is rated with a lifespan of 50 million key presses.
To distinguish the Apex M750 from a crowded market, the firm has enhanced the capabilities of its SteelSeries Engine, a software that can be used to customize the experience of its products by fine tuning the performance and also the lighting effects. For the first time, making its debut with the Apex M750, users will now be able to receive various notifications from Discord through customized visual cues through the keyboard. Although it is making its debut with the new keyboard, it also is accessible through other SteelSeries illuminated products.
The firm is also introducing new Engine Apps that include:
- ImageSync is the easiest way to create complex lighting, allowing gamers to simply upload any animated GIF and automatically converting it into a customized lighting effect.
- Audio Visualizer syncs the illumination on the M750 (and all SteelSeries illuminated products) with any music or playlist of the user's choice
- Gigantic, the popular strategic shooter, is now integrated with SteelSeries Engine, delivering real-time, in-game reactive illumination and haptic feedback across all SteelSeries-compatible devices
The Apex M750 is now available directly from the SteelSeries website and is priced at $139.99.
