Pros Cons
  • This keyboard features RGB lighting.
  • Multimedia-specific controls Larger cables simplify connections.
  • It's portable, thanks to the retractable palm rest.
  • Hard-pressed switches aren't silent.
  • The console connection takes time.

With this mechanical keyboard, you can confidently play through spills. SteelSeries has provided you with lots of space between the enormous keys, which is terrific. Another critical component is the more significant, removable palm rest. The RGB lights are fantastic, especially if you enjoy playing video games at night. You could bring this excellent keyboard to a friend's house and play World of Warcraft together. 

This mechanical gaming keyboard's 10-zone RGB illumination may be readily changed to fit your preferences or the surrounding lights. Although the switches used by SteelSeries aren't nearly as excellent as those on the Logitech G910 Orion Spectrum Wired Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, they are nonetheless reticent and durable.

You have a pretty polished gaming setup with the SteelSeries Apex 3 on your desk. With the help of the multimedia controls, you can instantly change the volume and play, pause, or fast-forward music. The keyboard's three-way cable routing scheme means that the extra cable is not a problem. By assigning shortcut keys, SteelSeries' straightforward software lets you personalize your gaming experience. Finally, the chassis of this keyboard is not very durable, so be careful not to damage it.

Question: States "whisper quiet switches" does it have membrane-style switches? I need something quieter than red switches, which are pretty loud.

Answer: In reality, I made this keyboard. There are no membranes. Use the alphabetic keys to modify the parameters. The standard, non-adjustable red color is used on the number pad, arrow keys, etc. I'd be exaggerating if I said they were silent. A laptop keyboard is significantly quieter than this one (although, I guess it depends on the laptop brand). However, I wouldn't describe them as being silent either. They will be able to hear what you are typing, though, if there are others in the room. Theoretically, changing the sensitivity levels might make the keys more responsive. The key should then be lightly touched to activate it. They would get quieter as a result. But I can see how typing it would be difficult as well.

Question: Will this keyboard help me defeat cyberbullies?

Answer: You can rule them entirely if you win over god and anime.

Question: Does anyone go from a corsair board to this? Thoughts on comparison mainly from the k95 platinum or k70 mk2 to this apex 7 with brown switches? Thanks

Answer: The Apex 7's top is composed of plastic, despite claims that it is "aircraft quality aluminum." There is an OLED screen, a roller, and a button for accessing those functionalities, but there isn't a specific media key or RGB logo/lightbar. The board provides 15 hardware effects as opposed to the K95 Platinum's and the K70 Mk.2's five, and the customization software is more user-friendly than iCUE (albeit it cannot do more via software like the Corsair).
