SteelSeries Apex LED Gaming Keyboard Lets You Customize its Colors

by Shane McGlaun

There are tons of gaming keyboards on the market today, and many of them share the same basic feature set. Acessory maker SteelSeries has unveiled a new gaming keyboard called the Apex that has an impressively customizable backlighting system to set it apart from the masses. The keyboard is capable of displaying 16.8 million different backlight colors.

The backlight also has eight levels of dimming control, and you can select which areas of the keyboard you want to be a specific color. That means you could make keys that go with macros for your favorite game one color, while leaving the remainder of the keyboard another color. Though unlike the completely customizeable Luxeed LED keyboard, this one only supports 5 predefined color zones. It would be nice if you could individually address each key.

Other than the fancy LED lighting system, the keyboard also has 22 macro keys. Each of those keys has four functions states Рfor a total of 88 possible macros. The keyboard also features anti-ghosting technology supporting up to 20 concurrent key presses. One of the more unusual features of the keyboard is two extra arrow keys that point up/left and up/right for quickly moving on the diagonal.

The SteelSeries Apex keyboard is available now for $99(USD).
