  • Awesome lighting and super smooth !
    Reviewed by Busymama07 - December 2, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We’re loving this gaming keyboard by Apex ! The lightening on this keyboard is perfect everything is brightly lit and can see clearly in the darkest room. The apex 3 keyboard is smooth, super comfortable to game with even after hours of countless play and what’s even better is there is absolutely no lag when hitting on the keys. The handrest on this keyboard can easily be removed to maximize your space or reattached when needed so effortlessly, since it’s magnetized. If your an intermediate or noob gamer this keyboard is an absolute must have to add to your gaming Setup and makes gaming so much more fun having this apex 3.

  • Slick and cool keyboard.
    Reviewed by PhillipB - March 31, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Setup was a snap. Plug and play and boom you are in. Quick function keys were easy to use. Also programing key entry was easy too. The keys are raised to accentuate the lighting which is really nice. The lights are bright and hot key functions are easy to use as well. Typing and game play are responsive. No lag. No sticking keys. Wrist rest magnet feature is nice. Easy on easy off. Only bad thing is if you move the keyboard the wrist rest will not follow like standard keyboards. I was too scared to try the water proof spill protection so I will take the word of it's water resistant rating. I would recommend this product. Nicely done.

  • Good Starter Keyboard
    Reviewed by hitsuyoo - March 29, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Out of the box, it's ready to plug and play with. It has really cool lighting effects that can be changed either on the board or through Steellseries software It's a membrane style keyboard with really good key travel and can be a little cumbersome for mechanical keyboard users. It comes with a wrist pad in the box, so that's a plus. I would recommend this board for starters that want some cool flare for their setup and not pay so much. Then there are the game console players. If you'd like to use a keyboard while gaming, this isn't a bad choice. Another nice feature is that it's splash resistant. So if you're gaming and happen to spill( I honestly recommend not drinking and gaming) it will hold up , if you take immediate action and clean it up. All in all, it's for novice. Still, it's a decent keyboard, but not for serious PC gamers. As always, here is the link to my full online review. If you can spare the extra scratch, pick up a better keyboard. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FgyUrkqHEnvyFTquuew-9z5G1ihW8MniBblscIHKmBQ/edit?usp=sharing

  • Great features
    Reviewed by JKSpring5 - December 4, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The key board has some additional cool capabilities that are not part of the normal keyboard. They have a volume roller on the top right side which rolls up and down depending on volume needs. There is one multimedia button that can be used for pause, play, forward and rewind. There is a profile switch key as well. There is a on the fly macro recording key. The keyboard is colorful, eye catchy ancestor bright.
