About this deal

Customization, especially a high level of it, adds so much value to your accessories, and Steelseries is doing that right through the GG app. new': False, 'is_limited': False, 'members_only': False, 'early_access': False, 'web_exclusive': False, 'name': 'PrismCaps', 'options': [{'option_slug': 'color', 'option_value_value': 'black', 'option_value_label': 'Black', 'option_value_title': 'Black'}], 'description': None, 'url': '/gaming-accessories/prismcaps? png', 'values': [{'option_slug': 'color', 'option_value_value': 'pink', 'option_value_label': 'Pink', 'option_value_title': 'Pink'}], 'url': '/gaming-accessories/prismcaps?

Admittedly, I still find many major firms using optical switches to not quite offer the flexibility that the original Wooting One did. The OptiPoint switches also offer the benefit of being removeable in the Apex 9 TKL, though the optical-ness of them does limit that hot-swappable functionality somewhat.

The keyboard comes with preset shortcuts, however, for switching between gaming and typing mode (SS key + I/O), switching between on-board profiles (SS key + F9), recording macros (SS key + F10) and adjusting the brightness of the per-key RGB (SS key + F11/F12), so the software isn’t critical. Ugly font, hideous light bleed, and it lacks the PrintScreen/Scroll Lock/Pause (which I map to media keys) => I'll stick with my Wooting One.

Through the software, you can modify the RGB lighting on a per-key basis, whether the lighting is active or reactive, and even create unique lighting schemes. We've also added a new Switches test box, added additional test comparisons to our Hardware Customizability test box that we introduced with our last Test Bench.

While quick and responsive to game and type with, the empty clack of the Apex 9's keys as they hit the switch housing just doesn't resonate with me. This keyboard uses proprietary linear OptiPoint switches, which have two fixed preset actuation points: one for gaming and a slightly longer one for typing.

I've never needed a keycap puller in an emergency situation sorta way, but I've definitely been scrambling through my desk organiser for one at times. We've also added new objective evaluations to the Typing Noise test, and we've simplified several tests and removed several others that were no longer relevant. com/thumbs/catalogue/products/01118-mechanical-keyboard-muffler-kit/a3890e294a8d43ecb3bcc9cb70e85d8e.For both, you aren’t going to have to try too hard though, saving your hands from wear and tear and hopefully decreasing your chances of carpal tunnel syndrome. png', 'values': [{'option_slug': 'language', 'option_value_value': 'taiwanese', 'option_value_label': 'Taiwanese', 'option_value_title': 'Taiwanese'}], 'url': '/gaming-accessories/keyboard-keycap-set?

A couple of months ago, SteelSeries launched the Apex Pro Mini — an ultra-compact, highly-customizable gaming keyboard. These switches have an adjustable pre-travel distance; however, instead of a whole range, you have the option of two actuation point settings: 1.There's definitely some further functionality I'd love to see out of SteelSeries' optical switches, at the very least a more granular actuation adjustment setting to get that set just right for me, and I think the GG app could be a little smarter looking. From hot-swappable key switches, to adjustable keystroke actuation points, this keyboard will last for years to come since it can change based on your needs. There's no bezel to it, for lack of a better word, and what I mean by that is there's very little outer edge to the keyboard face that extends beyond where the keys end. On the other hand, the SteelSeries boards are available in a TKL (80%) or Compact 60% form factors and use OptiPoint optical switches.
