The new Apex M800 keyboard, with RGB lighting and a price of 199 Euros, is the first keyboard that hides inside the mechanism developed by SteelSeries that introduces more speed and a central LED, plus an acrylic chassis that improves the brightness of each key.
The new mechanism is called QS1 and has a central LED, a return spring and a lateral actuator with 3mm of stroke, activation at only 1.5mm of stroke and a resistance of 45 grams that achieves a fairly light touch.
This new mechanism, according to SteelSeries, allows more speed, maintaining good levels of response for the player. Its central LED lighting lets it enhance each key and its transparent frame enhances the LED effect.
The new Apex M800 is the first SteelSeries keyboard with this mechanism but, according to the manufacturer, you will probably soon see other new models on a more affordable range.
