SteelSeries announced the APEX 150 gaming keyboard, delivering durability and advanced features in an affordable package. The Apex 150 introduces SteelSeries’ new membrane switches that provide an ultra-fast and quiet key feel with guaranteed 20-million click and splash resistance. The keyboard also features RGB lighting in five zones which are fully programmable with SteelSeries Engine software and compatible with SteelSeries apps such as Discord, PrismSync and the Audio Visualizer.
The APEX 150 is available now at http://steelseries.com/apex150 for $49.99.
The Apex 150 features fully-programmable keys with advanced anti-ghosting and 24-key rollover to deliver fast-paced, accurate gaming. The quick tension keys are designed for fast reaction times; the tension membrane’s design pulls the key into actuation, resulting in a tactile key feel and quiet operation. These switches are exclusive to SteelSeries.
SteelSeries Engine now features chat notifications in partnership with Discord. This feature, introduced with the Apex M750, allows real-time chat notifications from Discord to be synced to SteelSeries illuminated products. Streamers, gamers and esports players can light up the new Apex 150 with customizable notifications that indicate new messages, mute status and more.
In addition to Discord integration, SteelSeries Engine also includes other apps such as the Audio Visualizer, GameSense and PrismSync. The Audio Visualizer syncs the illumination on the Apex 150 (and all SteelSeries illuminated products) with any music or playlist of the user’s choice. GameSense lighting provides reactive illumination which responds to in-game events like low ammo, health, kills, money and cooldown timers. PrismSync dynamically syncs multi-color lighting effects between your Apex 150 and all your SteelSeries Prism-enabled gear.
