SteelSeries Apex M800 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard


Apex M800

Newly-designed Switches

We partnered with experts in switch technology to create the perfect switch for the M800. The result is the incredible QS1 switch. With a smooth linear action and 25% faster actuation than the traditional mechanical switch, the QS1 is built for pure speed (see comparison).

QS1 switches have a 3mm throw depth, a 1.5mm actuation and only require a 45cN actuation force. All of the design choices in the QS1 switch specifications were made with two goals in mind: React faster and spend less wasted effort as you destroy your competition!

Apex M800

Low-Profile Layout

The keyboard is built at a low angle and with an optimally designed linear key layout that cuts down on finger travel distance. This allows for seamless, quick transitions between keys and across the keyboard for less fatigue on your fingers no matter how furiously they fly.

Apex M800

Guaranteed Performance with Dual Processors

Your 600 APM would go to waste if the brains of the keyboard couldn't keep up. That's why we added an additional CPU inside the M800 that is dedicated only to processing key presses. No lag, no excuses. And when the gaming gets hectic, N-key rollover allows up to 256 key presses at once with zero issues.

Apex M800

Lighting Patterns

We built in some incredible pre-configured lighting options, like Breathe, Wave and Trigger that highlight the keyboard's vibrant and crisp illumination. Further personalize Apex M800 by creating, programing and sharing your own illumination designs.

Apex M800

Play Smarter With Powerful Macros

Our feature-rich macro editor is incredibly easy to use, for both casual and advanced users. We even include powerful text-based macro capabilities, for unlimited macros from SteelSeries Engine to the in-game console. M800 can also record macros on the fly with a simple button press.

To top it off, every key on the Apex M800 is individually programmable to any keyboard key, mouse button, media control, application or macro.

Apex M800

Custom Profiles For All Scenarios

We broke the mold with the M800, ditching the typical limits on customized profiles. Configure and save as many variations in your keyboard's lighting and programming as you want and instantly remap them with the touch of a button.

Fire up a game and SteelSeries Engine recognizes that, instantly changing settings for you. When you change over to a different game your fine-tuned settings will switch right along with you.

Apex M800

Incredible Features via SteelSeries Engine

SteelSeries Engine software is your control center to the M800, giving you access to features like individual key programming, CloudSync and profile switching across all your SteelSeries devices. It is both extremely powerful and simple to use – things our competition has every right to envy.

Apex M800

Individual Key Illumination

All of the LEDs on the M800 are individually customizable and feature a centered LED and a clear switch housing. The new keys are the perfect solution to show off your keyboard's 16.8 million colors and 8 brightness levels with crisp illumination and minimal light bleed.
