The core of the Apex Pro are the adjustable mechanical switches, which are such a world first. The self-developed Omnipoint RGB switches can be adapted to your own wishes with regard to their tripping sensitivity – for almost every button individually. Trigger points between 0.4 and 3.6 millimeters can be selected. This means that the keyboard can be optimized for a wide variety of applications, which is certainly a great advantage if you are not just doing a single job on the PC in everyday life. This great flexibility is made possible by magnetic sensors located in the buttons. Those who opt for a trigger point of 0.4 millimeters, however, have the fastest triggering gaming keyboard on the market. The lifetime of the keys is specified by the manufacturer as 100 million clicks and is therefore clearly above average.
Also worth mentioning is the small OLED display located in the upper right corner of the keyboard. On the display you can easily see your own pictures (even GIFs), which offers another possibility to customize the device. Especially in (semi-)professional gaming, where team logos are used, this rather unusual extra can be an advantage. Alternatively, the display can also be used to make basic settings without software. For example, the necessary triggering force for the switches or the lighting can be set on it.
The latter is another central feature of the keyboard. Each key has RGB lighting. This allows various possibilities: Each key can be illuminated individually. This is possible in rudimentary form via the integrated display and fully via the manufacturer’s free software.
Last but not least, the Apex Pro gaming keyboard also offers a USB pass-through connection, for example to connect USB sticks directly to the keyboard.
