    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been beyond pleased with this keyboard! It was so easy to hook up and get it running! Literally all I had to do was plug it into the usb slot and it connected instantly, it's great! It has a ton of options for color setting, which is amazing! You also have to option to control the brightness (even turning off, if wanted). I love that it has a little roll dial that allows you to control the volume. The keys are insanely responsive when typing! I don't like that the keys are so loud, but, it is something that I have gotten a little used to so far. All in all, I am pleased with this keyboard and can see it lasting me a good amount of time.

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This keyboard screams high quality! As soon as I opened the package the weight and the feeling were noticeable. I hooked it up to my pc, it recognized it right away. I did need to go download the software from their site, but was simple enough. Paired w app loved changing the colors and keystroke actions. Meaning press a key and whole row lights up like a laser. Really cool. It’s actually really quiet for being mechanical, they are subdued but minimal sound. Playing games with keyboard, was extremely fast and responsive. I loved the little Oled screening keyboard that showed in game stats etc ! Overall great keyboard!

  • Awesome keyboard
    Reviewed by Komi - April 8, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The SteelSeries - Apex 5 Wired Gaming Hybrid Mechanical Blue Switch Keyboard with RGB Back Lighting is great to use. The body material gives the keyboard a sturdy heavy weight feel. The magnetically detachable wrist rest is quite comfortable and has a satin finish feel to it. It doesn't detach from the keyboard while typing so that's great. The best thing about this keyboard is the reactive RGB effect. When you type a key, the light colors flow through the fingers & looks pretty cool. My 16 month old son is also fascinated by the lights on the keyboard & always wants to sit & hit the keys. One of the best keyboards I've used so far.
