New SteelSeries keyboards are of the highest calibre and cost.
The Apex Pro Mini and Apex Pro Mini Wireless keyboards from gaming accessory manufacturer SteelSeries were unveiled.
Each keyboard employs an OmniPoint 2.0 switch, which provides users with quicker response times, shorter actuation delays, and even more adjustability options. It operates between 0.2mm and 3.8mm. Dual Action keypresses, a premium feature we saw in one of the best gaming keyboards available, the Razer Huntsman V2 Analog, allow users to programme two actions on a single key.
According to SteelSeries, the 0.54ms response time is the fastest in the world when adjusted to 0.2mm. Additionally, the 60 percent smaller design offers extra work space and space for the mouse to travel.
The Apex Pro costs $179 (about £150, AU$260), while the Apex Pro Mini Wireless costs $239 (around £200, AU$345).
Do the priciest keyboards merit their price?
Although these gaming keyboards are unquestionably of the highest calibre, the exorbitant pricing may deter any but the most devoted PC gamers.
The best inexpensive gaming keyboards on the market, however, won’t break the money and provide a great gaming experience. Even SteelSeries has a less expensive model available, the SteelSeries Apex 3, which is currently priced at around $45. There are also many additional models available at comparable prices.
A high-end keyboard is generally not necessary unless you’re a serious player who requires that 0.54ms response speed. Of course, due diligence and adequate research are needed to ensure you’re not obtaining a dud.
