APEX M500

The Apex M500 is a tournament-grade backlit mechanical gaming keyboard built entirely around the needs of professional gamers.

ESPORTS LEGACY

The Apex M500 adds to the legacy which began with our release of the first mechanical gaming keyboard, the 6Gv2. With the addition of Cherry MX Red switches, the M500 creates a new standard for pro-performance and durability.

Outlast The Competition

Guaranteed durability! Cherry MX's keypress guarantee ensures your switches will work and feel the same for more than 50 million clicks. That's over 5 times longer than that dusty old membrane keyboard on your desk.

Full Anti-Ghosting

Every gamer knows the feeling of knowing that you pressed a key in the heat of battle and having it not register in-game. Unlike the competition, we didn't cut corners. The M500 offers full Anti-Ghosting and N-Key Rollover.

More Than A Feeling

It doesn't matter if it's the first keypress or the millionth, your keys will always feel brand new. Every switch maintains their same key feel over time, which is critical for building the muscle memory needed to play at the highest levels.

APEX M500
Cherry MX Reds

Featuring the industry-leading Cherry MX Red Mechanical Gaming Switches, the Apex M500 delivers the game-winning performance required by pros. The low force and actuation point of the switch results in dramatically faster gameplay making Reds the undisputed choice of professionals. Games are decided in seconds, and every advantage is essential.

THE DESIGN

Products shouldn't look like they came through a portal from the future. We designed the Apex M500 to get the job done. The sleek and minimalistic design gives you everything you need in a professional gaming keyboard, without any of the fluff.

Built Like a Tank

A durable keyboard is essential. Created with the toughest plastics and reinforced with a battle-hardened steel back plate, we've gone to extra lengths to ensure the construction and materials can withstand anything thrown its way.

Blue LED Illumination

Brilliant blue LEDs under every single key provide the brightest visibility and eye-catching style. Take it a step further and choose between 3 different breathe settings with 4 individual levels of brightness.

Standard Key Layout

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. A standard key layout means no learning curve and no surprises.With Cherry key stems, gamers can swap out the keycaps for a custom set and everything fits perfectly.

1. Quick Access Media Control

No need to Alt-Tab out of the game to get your media settings just right.


2. Cable Management

The unique cable management system gives you multiple ways to straighten up your battlestation. Three individual guides let you choose where your cable comes out of your keyboard, eliminating any cable issues on your desk.


3. Adjustable height

Large and sturdy adjustable feet give you the perfect angle for attack. Because you know what they say about keyboards with big feet...


4. Engineering 101

We didn't place the pattern under the M500 just because it looks cool. Every shape was engineered to dramatically increase the structural integrity of the keyboard.

Customization

MAKE IT YOURS
Limitless Customization

Apex M500 has the largest arsenal of customization options compared to other mechanical gaming keyboard in its class. Customize and re-assign any and all keys to make yours one-of-a-kind.
