SteelSeries Apex M750 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2017-12-05

The Apex M750 was primarily thought for gaming purposes, so SteelSeries has integrated the QX2 mechanical switches, which were built in cooperation with Gateron. These linear switches have an actuation point of 2mm with an overall travel of 4mm; with the 45cN actuation force, these do bring a similar feel to the Cherry MX Reds but at the same time they produce quite a bit of noise. This aspect may be a non-issue during gaming sessions, but when doing productivity work these could become annoying. Also, it is good to mention that because of the shorter than usual travel distance, users may need some time to get used to when typing documents, because in the first week of usage, we kept making quite a bit of mistakes.
