SteelSeries Apex M500 NKRO Gaming Keyboard With Cherry MX Red Switches!

Monday, June 13, 2016

Games are decided in seconds and there is no worse feeling that your gaming keyboard or gaming mouse letting you down in the heat of battle!
If you are looking for ways to increase faster gameplay, you can achieve this with a mechanical gaming keyboard that uses Cherry MX Red switches with very low throw depth as well as low actuation and reset depth.
The SteelSeries Apex M500 mechanical gaming keyboard not only uses Cherry MX Red switches with swappable keycaps but it has a throw depth of 4 mm and an actuation and reset depth of 2 mm.
The Apex M500 is quite literary built like a tank with reinforced steel back plate chassis and high durable plastic.
With the SteelSeries Apex M500 mechanical gaming keyboard you also get very handy features like Anti-Ghosting and N-Key Rollover, as well as programmable text-based and key-press macros.
If you are not familiar with N-Key Rollover and Anti-ghosting, N-Key Rollover essentially allows you to be able to press multiple keys on the keyboard simultaneously and every single key press will be registered completely independently in gameplay.
With Anti-ghosting, you won't get "mysterious" keys being registered when you press multiple keys at the same time. Both N-Key Rollover and Anti-ghosting features are really necessary when playing arcade fighting games, Guitar hero, Magicka Wizard Wars or the video game OSU!
The Verdict
The SteelSeries Apex M500 mechanical gaming keyboard is a quality piece of engineering that has been made to last. SteelSeries have kept the key layout of the Apex M500 standard but have added better keyboard functionality by adding blue LEDs under every single key. You can also adjust the levels of brightness of the blue LED and choose between 3 different breathe settings.

The Apex M500 also features media control buttons (for quick access) and a unique cable management system that allows you to manage the keyboard cable in different ways. Also, you can customize and reassign any of the keys and you can program macros very easily during gameplay. Check out the SteelSeries Apex M500 NKRO Gaming Keyboard
