ENGINEERED FOR SPEED
Inspired by the design of the popular Apex gaming keyboard, we set out to make the fastest mechanical gaming keyboard without compromise. We thought of everything: from the low-profile design to the fast-reacting switches to the dual processors.
As gamers we are all different. But whether you like to destroy your enemies, explore new areas of the latest x-pac or build a new city, the Apex M800 has virtually unlimited ways in which to customize it to make it yours. From advanced custom lighting schemes, to advanced text macro creation, to in-game integration, the M800 has everything you need to make it yours…
ATTENTION TO DETAIL
We are obsessive gamers. We know what works for gamers and what doesn’t. That’s why we obsessed over the angle of attack of the keyboard to make sure that your hands wouldn’t tire as quickly as they would with a traditional board. We sweated over the ideal key shape to allow you to glide faster between key strokes. We even insisted on a clear dome on the illuminated switches – so the keys would be the brightest on the market. It’s the little things that matter.
We partnered with experts in switch technology to create the perfect switch for the M800. The result is the incredible QS1 switch. With a smooth linear action and 25% faster actuation than the traditional mechanical switch, the QS1 is built for pure speed (see comparison).
QS1 switches have a 3mm throw depth, a 1.5mm actuation and only require a 45cN actuation force. All of the design choices in the QS1 switch specifications were made with two goals in mind: React faster and spend less effort as you destroy your competition!
INDIVIDUAL KEY ILLUMINATION
All of the LEDs on the M800 are individually customizable and feature a centered LED and a clear switch housing. The new keys are the perfect solution to show off your keyboard’s 16.8 million colors and 8 brightness levels with crisp illumination and minimal light bleed.
We broke the mold with the M800, ditching the typical limits on customized profiles. 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.
Fire up a game and SteelSeries Engine 3 recognizes that, instantly changing settings for you. When you change over to a different game your fine-tuned settings will switch right along with you.
