We gamers love our hydration, specifically energy drinks. Go to any LAN party or eSports tournament setting and you’ll probably see cases in the fridge. So, suffice to say, a lot of gaming tech can get messed up pretty bad when a can of insert name here splashes across the desk. Thankfully, SteelSeries has just unveiled a new product that will heighten the current level of gaming performance and won’t die when your favorite drink explodes in victory or defeat!
Introducing the SteelSeries Apex 150!
For just $49.99, you can purchase this uber durable keyboard that SteelSeries promises to be the quietest, most capable, affordable keyboard on the market today. In addition to the splash resistance, here are a few of the features the Apex 150 includes.
The Apex 150 features fully-programmable keys with advanced anti-ghosting and 24-key rollover to deliver fast-paced, accurate gaming. The quick tension keys are designed for fast reaction times; the tension membrane’s design pulls the key into actuation, resulting in a tactile key feel and quiet operation. These switches are exclusive to SteelSeries.
SteelSeries Engine now features chat notifications in partnership with Discord. This feature, introduced with the Apex M750, allows real-time chat notifications from Discord to be synced to SteelSeries illuminated products. Streamers, gamers and esports players can light up the new Apex 150 with customizable notifications that indicate new messages, mute status and more.
In addition to Discord integration, SteelSeries Engine also includes other apps such as the Audio Visualizer, GameSense and PrismSync. The Audio Visualizer syncs the illumination on the Apex 150 (and all SteelSeries illuminated products) with any music or playlist of the user’s choice. GameSense lighting provides reactive illumination which responds to in-game events like low ammo, health, kills, money and cooldown timers. PrismSync dynamically syncs multi-color lighting effects between your Apex 150 and all your SteelSeries Prism-enabled gear.
What appeals to me the most is the GameSense feature. I think it’s pretty awesome that the keyboard illuminates to in-game events. Plus, the fact that they’re bringing back the Discord feature from the Apex M750 shows that SteelSeries is committed to giving their consumers the best for a low price.
