There’s no question that gamers — and some of the staff here at Techaeris — love their mechanical gaming keyboards. We’ve reviewed quite a few here at Techaeris and SteelSeries has just added the APEX M750 mechanical gaming keyboard to their lineup, touting it as “The Complete Package.”
In the past, SteelSeries has worked closely with gamers to develop and test new products and the APEX M750 features new QX2 linear mechanical switches and a sleek, modern, durable aerospace aluminum core. With a low-force, linear actuation point, the QX2 switches are quiet, deliver ultra-fast and consistent gameplay, and are guaranteed for 50 million key presses.
The new keyboard also brings new SteelSeries Engine features. Alongside the current PrismSync and GameSense features, the SteelSeries Engine App lineup is expanding to include ImageSync, an Audio Visualizer, and support for the recently released MOBA Gigantic. ImageSync will allow users to upload an animated GIF which will then be converted into a customized lighting effect, while the Audio Visualizer will sync the M750 and all illuminated SteelSeries products with music. Support for Gigantic will give gamers in-game reactive lighting and haptic feedback for even more control over gameplay.
The new APEX M750 mechanical gaming keyboard is now available on the SteelSeries website for $139.99USD.
