General + -
Our global verdict about this keyboard is generally positive as Steelseries managed to create a solid product. We like the fact that this keyboard is heavy, features simple, standard design and therefore also a standard layout. Apart from that there is a blue backlight, which is clear and precise and definitely bright enough.   - Weight
- Lightning effects
Manufacturing quality / Ergonomics   + -
The Steelseries Apex M500 gaming keyboard is comfortable to use. All the keys are well placed and easy to reach so you will not find yourself pressing the wrong key by accident. There are programmable F-buttons, through which you can access makros by pressing FN and the corresponding F-key. In addition there are also multimedia functions already programmed. Regarding the Cherry MX Red switches we can say, they're precise and linear while providing good tactile feedback. Also the blue backlight is very good and it offers few different lightning effects.   - Build quality
- Backlight
- Switches

Software   + -
The software is simple, clear and has everything you might need. It is free and easy to get and this is a good thing in our book.   - Easy to use
Recommendation / Price   + -
The starting price of the Apex M500 on Geizhals is 119 euro excluding shipping costs. In terms of value, the keyboard is certainly a good product with attractive features and mechanical switches hovewer we believe that the price is a bit steep.   - Price is a bit steep
We gave the Apex M500 from Steelseries 4 out of 5 stars.
