"Stylish and powerful"
5 stars"

The Apex M800 is definitely the coolest looking mechanical keyboard around, in my opinion. But it works as well as it looks. The lighting patterns are customizable and vibrant for those late night gaming sessions, and the keys aren't too loud. They feel weighty and responsive though, as you would expect from a mechanical keyboard. Would recommend!

"not bad at all"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This keyboard is so easy to press compared my old school PC gaming keyboard though the keys are closer together > the colours are bright though constantly keep changing so better not to make the area dark however, try not to press the windows key as it disables the keyboard though can be fixed by re pressing the windows key though once get used to the keyboard game play will be a sinch

"Comfortable, Smooth and Satisfied"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The keys are smooth, not too high and not too low. The customize ability is neat. But a little confusing at first. Comfortable to use and no issues found with the product. Only issue I had was with the courier. Did not deliver to me at all. Redirected to a post shop way out and had to collect the item myself and ring 3 times.


The tournament-grade SteelSeries Apex M800 is the world’s fastest and most programmable mechanical gaming keyboard. It gives you the quick response and personal control to master your favorite games.
