The Advantage Of Using A Steelseries Keyboard

And whether you are a serious gamer or simply a casual PC player, you likely take your selection of gaming keyboard extremely seriously. It is not a simple device that you just plug in and use to get you going. It is multi-functional, with features that allow you to quickly look up online guides, forums, FAQs and news regarding your specific genre of gaming. But beyond those basic uses, what else can your keyboard do for you?

In addition to the above mentioned uses, several high-quality gaming keyboards offer additional features that will make your gaming experience even better. One such key feature is a combination of mechanical switches and touch sensitive keys. Mechanical keyboards utilize an innovative design where the actuation of each key is linked to the action of a physical keypad. When your finger hits a key, the “bump” that it generates with the corresponding pressure is felt by a sensor embedded within the key, sending a light signal to the computer which causes the corresponding action to be executed. Because the mechanical switches used are so highly responsive, these keys provide a light, tactile feel that is second to none.

Many of the more advanced gaming keyboard models also use what is known as “gaming key” technology, whereby a number of different actions – typically macro/hotkey commands – are combinations of actions that can be executed by pressing certain keys simultaneously. For example, when you press a key to macros a menu of options will be displayed immediately. If you then type a different key, say “back”, this combination of actions will be executed. These added actions and functions add a great deal of functionality to today’s gaming keyboard, allowing for a much deeper and more detailed experience than could be had with a standard (at least semi-permanent) keyboards.

Steelseries Apex is the world’s leading manufacturer of gaming keyboards and headsets. The company’s Attic series of keyboards are considered some of the most durable on the market, having been designed to handle not only massive amounts of pressure, but direct contact with a human hand as well. In addition to these Aptic series switches and bumps, Steelseries also provides a large selection of LED under-body illumination switches which can light up the back of your keyboard or monitor for extra safety and visibility in low lighting environments. With all of these features and functions packed into one sleek and compact keyboard, the Steelseries Apex Pro is truly one of the industry’s leading keyboards.

The standard (and maybe even boring) gaming keypad tend to be left-handed. Luckily, the Steelseries Apex Pro has a special switch that allows it to be operated right-handed users just like a standard keyboard. This feature makes using a standard keyboard more comfortable for those who have to write constantly or use the keyboard while performing other tasks. In addition to the light-up facility on the under-body of the keyboard, the keyboard also has what is called the wrist-rest, which can be easily adjusted to your own personal style. There is also a soft-closing feature which can be adjusted to maintain the proper level of sensitivity.

Some of the biggest advantages to using a keyboard over a standard model is the extra macro keys the keyboard has compared to other models. Unlike other models that have extremely limited macro keys and only a few commands (such as “backspace” and “tab”), the keyboard allows you to set up to 10 macros which makes controlling your computer more efficient and faster when running multiple applications simultaneously. And since the Steelseries Apex uses a very unique mechanism for input, the built-in sound effects and visual indicators add to the fun and efficiency of using a gaming keyboard. There are a total of six visual indicators in the Steensersies keyboard which can all be individually adjusted for any situations. These include the likes of the “space bar” which cycles between the six different windows, the “tab” button, which cycles between the six windows and the “back space” which close the currently active window.
