Built Like a Tank
A durable keyboard is essential. Created with the toughest plastics and reinforced with a battle-hardened steel back plate, we’ve gone to extra lengths to ensure the construction and materials can withstand anything thrown its way.
Blue LED Illumination
Brilliant blue LEDs under every single key provide the brightest visibility and eye-catching style. Take it a step further and choose between 3 different breathe settings with 4 individual levels of brightness.
Standard Key Layout
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. A standard key layout means no learning curve and no surprises. With Cherry key stems, gamers can swap out the keycaps for a custom set and everything fits perfectly.
Outlast The Competition
Guaranteed durability! Cherry MX’s keypress guarantee ensures your switches will work and feel the same for more than 50 million clicks. That’s over 5 times longer than that dusty old membrane keyboard on your desk.
Every gamer knows the feeling of knowing that you pressed a key in the heat of battle and having it not register in-game. Unlike the competition, we didn’t cut corners. The M500 offers full Anti-Ghosting and N-Key Rollover.
More Than A Feeling
It doesn’t matter if it’s the first keypress or the millionth, your keys will always feel brand new. Every switch maintains their same key feel over time, which is critical for building the muscle memory needed to play at the highest levels.
Apex M500 has the largest arsenal of customization options compared to other mechanical gaming keyboard in its class. Customize and re-assign any and all keys to make yours one-of-a-kind.
With SteelSeries Engine, take control with the most expansive set of macros and personalization options. Text based, key-press, and-on-the-fly macros can all be programmed and set with ease.
Your profiles aren’t limited to just your keyboard. Program any key to cycle between your keyboard, headset, and mouse profiles. You can even create an unlimited number of profiles that auto-deploy your exact settings right when you launch your games
