SteelSeries Has Announced What Could Be The World's Most Versatile Keyboard
Topic: Mechanical Keyboards
Hot of the press out of Computex, SteelSeries has just unveiled two new mechanical keyboards the Apex Pro and Apex Pro TKL both featuring the brand new Omni Point Adjustable Actuation Switches. Not the standard mechanical keyboard you're used to seeing as these particular keyboards contain magnetic sensors that allow users to adjust the actuation distance between different applications aided by the SteelSeries Engine.
Published reports state that users will be able to adjust the distance from 3.6mm to as low as 0.4mm, letting anyone effectively type on the keyboard and even boost gaming performance. You can also modify the sensitivity level the same as your gaming mouse.
If you have read my past articles you know I'm always pointing out the standout features, with the Apex Pro models, the standout feature is an understatement as it has an OLED screen which can you use in a variety of ways.
You can switch between locally stored files in your system, or display notifications from various web-based apps. There's even a roller right beside the screen. That's to be used to control the volume or other settings.
SteelSeries announced two other keyboards that fall within the same product line, and they are the Apex 7 and Apex 7 TKL the build and design are very identical to the Pro series having only just the traditional mechanical switches minus the OmniPoint feature. Three color schemes available are Red, Brown, and Blue.
Price listing will go as follows; the TKL models expected price-point will be $159.99 for the full-size version and $129.99 TKL model. Now the Pro series is scheduled to be launched in June and will cost $199.99 for the Numpad edition, $179.99 for the compact version.
Noted: for those who aren't familiar with Computex, it's an electronics trade show that mostly features computers and PC hardware. It takes place every year (May to be exact) located in Taipei Taiwan.
