Apex 5 Wired Hybrid Mechanical Keyboard by SteelSeries

Apex 5 Wired RGB Gaming Keyboard

Game With PrecisionIntroducing the Apex 5 keyboard from SteelSeries, combining the smoothness of a membrane switch with the added durability, performance and tactile click of a blue mechanical switch to give you a true hybrid and premium gaming experience – where you can take the best of both worlds. This outstanding keyboard is also fitted with an OLED screen which can display profiles, game info, discord notifications and much more. Built from Aircraft-Grade aluminium alloy and with an included premium magnetic wrist rest you really can't go wrong with SteelSeries.

True Hybrid Keyboard Switches

Get Yourself the Best of Both Worlds Rather than adding extra-reinforcement and a plastic noisemaker as some "hybrid" keyboards do, SteelSeries instead started with a mechanical blue switch to keep the same crisp, tactile feel of a mechanical switch. Keeping the same actuation point of 2mm – however, the magic happens beneath the spring itself. SteelSeries have replaced the standard gold-plated circuits with a super durable membrane to save on cost and also to make bottoming the key out feel more comfortable.

Aircraft-Grade Aluminium Design & Magnetic Wrist Rest

Image to show premium wristrest

Super Durable and comfortable The series 5000 metal frame has been manufactured to provide you with the unbreakable durability that serious enthusiasts strive for. Pair this with the included premium grade wrist rest, the perfect keyboard accessory, with a simple magnetic solution for easy and secure attachment, full palm support, and durable soft touch finish. Made to make sure you’re comfortable typing and gaming for as long as you desire.

OLED Smart Display & Dedicated Multimedia Keys

Information on-the-Fly One of the more unique features on the SteelSeries Apex 5 is the integration of a smart OLED screen which you can customise with your favourite GIFs, receive message notifications, change your light settings, even get information about what music you're listening too or what game you're playing. A clickable metal roller and media keys also allow you to adjust the volume settings, rewind, skip and pause all at the easy touch of the button.

Three-Way Cable Routing

Three way cable routing

Cable Management Made Easy Stop your cables from stretching, pulling or getting in the way, the Apex 5 has custom in-built channels in the base of the keyboard that allow you to choose from one of three possible routes for your cable to exit, keeping your desk tidy and your keyboard safe.
