      Product information
      Take your gaming to the next level with the SteelSeries Apex M800 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard.

      Engineered for speed

      From its low-profile design to the fast-reacting switches to the dual processors, the Apex M800 was built to be the fastest mechanical gaming keyboard available.

      The keyboard is built at an ergonomic low angle and with an optimally designed linear key layout that cuts down on finger travel distance. This allows for seamless, quick transitions between keys and across the keyboard for less fatigue on your fingers no matter how fast you move them. The end result is a comfortable and responsive gaming experience.

      The QS1 switch is newly designed and offers a smooth linear action. Built for pure speed, it provides 25% faster actuation than the traditional mechanical switch, giving you the edge in your games.

      With an additional CPU that is dedicated only to processing key presses, you can avoid the frustrating issue of lag. The addition of N-key rollover allows you to press up to 256 keys at once with zero issues, giving you total control over your actions.

      Customisable

      All gamers are different, and the Apex M800 allows you to express who you are as a gamer. All of the LEDs on the M800 are individually customisable and feature a centred LED and a clear switch housing. With 16.8 million colours and eight brightness levels available, all with crisp illumination and minimal light bleed, you can create your own unique style for your gaming sessions.

      You can configure and save as many variations in your keyboard's lighting and programming as you want and instantly remap them with the touch of a button.

      All 114 buttons on the keyboard can be programmed, and with advanced text macro creation and in-game integration you can be confident of a completely unique and customised gaming experience.

      With superior speed, options and power, the SteelSeries Apex M800 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is the ideal addition to your gaming set up.

      Fast key presses, great design
      The caps lock key is very close to the a key, nothing else.

      Easyish to customise.
      Colours look great when playing in the dark.

      Not too nosiy.
      Occasionally having to unplug and repluig it back in again to make it activate (issues from my USB ports I think). Keys are sensitive so poor typing more easily results in the wrong key being hit.

      The mechanical switches are excellent and activated with little pressure on the keys. Unlike MX switches, they are also less clicky but still have a nice sound and a decent amount of feedback.

      Lighting. More like Jarre. With 16.7 millions colours and shades you do get a nice display. The software can make it pulse, breathe, highlight only certain keys for games, assign a cooldown for those important spell keys (for expample you press "P" and it goes out. 5 seconds later it fades back in again ready for use).

      The macro keys are very easy to programme as well with plenty of choice and built in commands for the latest games. These can also be downloaded.

      It has two usb 2 ports in the rear and these are powered through the PC.

      Lighting and some other functions can also be used via the onboard keys.

      As a bonus it also came with a key extractor and some replaceable MAC keys for those who want a decent keyboard for their £300000 pound MAC (lets face it they only turn the M round to do a W or is it Vice Versa?)

      Finally, when I installed the software it performed a firmware update which proves good support.

      The icing on the cake? You can play games like Minesweeper or Worm on the keyboard. And I do mean ON the keyboard using the lights.

      For the sale price it is? It is steal. Mine was £94 quid but even less? No brainer!
      Well, lots of positives.

      Negatives: The keyboard is plastic. It's weighty, sturdy and feels great but still plastic.

      The Caps lock is not very well placed. Unlike some keyboards where there is a little indentation you are forever hitting the thing.

      It is not forgiving for slippy fingers!

      You need 2 usb ports to run this so make sure you have them free!

      Also, it can be a bit picky when coming out of hibernation and sometimes you need to change ports. Hopefully another firmware update will fix this.
