The SteelSeries Apex M500 Gaming Keyboard is a low-frills gaming keyboard that gets the job done. It’s an understated, yet durable keyboard with a steel back plate and rubber pads to prevent the keyboard from slipping. And although it lacks extra keys specifically for macros, all 104 keys are programmable through its Engine 3 software and they are backlit with blue LEDs. This gaming keyboard is built like a tank and it’s for those who follow the philosophy of function over form. Sometimes you don’t want all the extra features that many of the other keyboards have. Sometimes you just need a keyboard that lets you simply game.
