Hello eSports champions and hopefuls out there, SteelSeries, one of the leaders in gaming peripherals, just announced and released their SteelSeries Apex M500 Mechanical keyboard. According to Steel Series, it’s a “battle-ready mechanical Keyboard for performance purists now armed with Cherry MX and SteelSeries Engine software.”

I have used my share of SteelSeries equipment during my gaming adventures and I have yet to be disappointed personally. This tournament-ready keyboard includes features such as Anti-Ghosting technology, blue LED backlighting and a traditional key layout for universality.

The Cherry MX Red Switches are one of the most preferred choices for pro gamers worldwide. They provide excellent durability and exceptional consistency. These keys have the best switch rating and include a 50-million-press guarantee. With these type of features, this keyboard is shaping up to be an indispensable tool for gamers everywhere. I have tested Cherry MX Red Switches in the past and these keys are one of the best when it comes to responsiveness and durability.

The included SteelSeries Engine Software gives the ultimate level of customization for players; anyone can program their personal favorite combinations of keys onto an individual key. You can create unlimited profiles for your keys to create unique macros for faster gaming, launching game profiles automatically and many more things. Utilizing this software is a great way to help you stand apart from others out there with lightning fast speed and unlock many other possibilities.

Finally the keyboard comes equipped with three cable guides so you can customize it to your setup at home and eliminate any tangles or interference. The 100% Anti-Ghosting technology has 104 key rollover to ensure precision no matter how fast gamers play.
