Gaming peripherals maker SteelSeries has revealed its latest addition to the Apex lineup: the Apex Pro Mini and Apex Pro Mini Wireless keyboards.
Each keyboard uses the OmniPoint 2.0 switch, which operates between 0.2mm and 3.8mm and offers users faster response, actuation times and even more tuning potential. It also features Dual Action keystrokes, allowing users to program two actions into a single keystroke, a premium feature we saw in one of the best gaming keyboards around the Razer Huntsman V2 Analog.
SteelSeries claims that when set to 0.2mm, the 0.54ms response time is the fastest in the world. And the 60% more compact design allows for more desk space and room for mouse movement.
The Apex Pro Mini Wireless will cost $239 (about £200, AU$345), while the Apex Pro will cost $179 (about £150, AU$260).
Review: Are the most expensive keyboards worth it?
While these gaming keyboards are certainly high quality, the prices are incredibly high and can scare anyone but the most dedicated PC gamers.
However, the best cheap gaming keyboards on the market that offer an excellent gaming experience won’t break the bank. Even SteelSeries offers its own cheaper model, the SteelSeries Apex 3, which is around $45 at the moment. And there are many other models that cost around the same.
Of course, due diligence and proper research is important to ensure you’re not getting a clunker, but unless you’re a competitive gamer who needs that 0.54ms response time, you probably won’t need such a keyboard. sophisticated.
