Apex 350 US version

I really liked the keyboard. RGB Light are bright, key are smooth, silent and fast (for a membrane) and having a USB hub is a real "plus". But, I returned the keyboard. I'm coming from an old G15 and this one was HUGE compared to the G15... I had almost no space on my keyboard tray. The RGB is only on five zone. It make the RGB thing a little useless... You'll most likely end with one color overall (instant of having WSAD another color for example).

Keyboard Model?????

I wish I could identify the keyboard model as it looks like the Apex 350 keyboard but I'm not sure. The only Steelseries product that I need now is a keyboard.

Bad Membrane Switches

Pros: - Good RGB control for its price range - Media keys are useful - Plenty of customizable macro/function keys - 2 USB Pass-through Ports - Braided Cable Cons: - No incline adjustment - Bad membrane responsiveness Despite such rich features, the build design of the membrane detection is horrible. You have to press down with a lot of force in order for the key to interact with the membrane. This is especially noticeable with the Shift and Control keys. In short, when you press a key down, sometimes it doesnt register at all. For this very reason, I find it hard to recommend this keyboard for gaming. The fundamental function of the keys were designed poorly and overshadows all the great features. If you want quality membrane switch gaming keyboards, AZIO and GIGABYTE are where you should look.

Best keyboard

I currently have this keyboard for 8 months now and it has done everything I ever wanted it too do! Customizable buttons feature with 4 layouts which I think is cool so I can have a layout all red then another one all turquoise then green then white. I do like the springy buttons which makes it easier to game. I recommend this keyboard for all.

Streamer/Pro-Gamer

It has to be one of the best non-mechanical RGB keyboard i've owned. I used to be a huge Logitec fan but after my old G15 broke i had to replace it. I picked up this keyboard paired with a Steelseries Rival (also RGB) and i dont regret it at all. Keys are smooth, perfect sized and SILENT. Something i hated about mechanical keyboards was the unbearable noise (my girlfriend couldnt take it either) and this keyboard emits very few noises when typing. You get two sets of sturdy rubber feets to determine the angle of your keyboard (instead of cheap and fragile plastic tabs) wich is great since the basic feets are pretty flat and i prefer using an angled keyboard. The RGB software needed to manage the colors is intuitive and works very well! You can create profiles to change the color on every RGB steelseries gear you own with the press of a button. Macros keys are great for gaming and also general tasks you might perform often (copy-paste etc). Overall a great product that i've had for around 5-6 months with no problems at all compared to sticky keys on my first G15 and the nightmare i had trying to get my first (and last ever) Razer keyboard. 10/10 would buy again!!

Great Keyboard for the price

This keyboard is great for any gamer who may be starting out. It is fairly inexpensive and has lots of features. I am using this with a Mac and i am very happy with the perfect compatibility of software. This is hard to find in a keyboard. The software itself is very easy to use once you get used to it, and even recognizes some games and will change things like colour and brightness in respect to aspects like ammo and health. The key travel is a bit more than expected, and that's not a bad thing. This is a good option instead of a mechanical, but the ergonomics could be a bit better. Definitely with the price.

Keys not sensitive enough

Treated this keyboard extremely well and lasted two days before the shift key would have to be mashed in order to work. Started happening with all keys. Other than that sweet keyboard with colors and all.

Excellent value gaming keyboard.

This is a great keyboard. Even if it's pretty over sized (22" x9" can take it's toll on limited space!), I've found the macro keys are pretty handy to use not just for games, but also for production-oriented applications. Being able to have two USB pass throughs is a handy feature as well, even more if you happen to have a USB hub to connect various peripherals. Colors are somewhat dim depending on your current lighting, but they're still very nice under darker conditions, although you won't be getting the full rainbow crazy led experience some more expensive keyboards will offer. Wouldn't mind such functionality, though. Performance-wise, it's excellent. So far I haven't had any issues with it, although I do expect it to last less than a mechanical keyboard. Nevertheless, it's still very responsive, and silent. The built-in wrist rest is actually extremely comfortable, and the massive space bar is just phenomenal once you get used to it. Built in profiles can be quite handy as well to dynamically change your macro layout on the fly. Overall, my only gripe with this product is the limited color customization.

Amazing!

I recently bought this item from bestbuy-- and I was a bit skeptichal at first. When I brought this home-- I unboxed it and set it up right away. It takes two usb ports to power it-- however-- I find that it is amazing value as it has two usb ports on the back of the keyboard. I have an older laptop and I find that my carpal tunnell is bothered by my laptop keyboard-- so this keyboard I find using it for the past month has significantly helped as I put the other nubs that lift the keyboard up which makes my typing and hands feel so much better. I find this keyboard is surprisingly ergonomic-- which is what you need for longer periods of gaming. I am in love with this keyboard. It takes a while to setup-- however- I found tutorials online-- and I use it for World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Minecraft, Counterstrike-- and various other games. I would recommend this to anyone who is on the computer for long periods of time. I also like that I have customized back lit keyboard-- that I can effectively read what I am doing in the dark. I have no regrets buying this laptop. I got it on sale. Thank you Bestbuy for carrying this keyboard!

Paint coming of the keys!

I bought this keyboard three months ago and the paint on the keys is coming off. I contacted the customer service a SteelSeries and mention the defect with photos of my keyboard and the details of the degradation. They have sent my request to Mike and one month later noting. Still nothing. I should have stayed with Logitech.
