Steelseries is a company that knows gaming. Since first arriving on the scene in 2001, Steelseries has been a familiar face when it comes to esports and professional gaming. They have always strived to create the very best for the players and teams who depend on their products. It’s no different for the consumers either as the very same products that make it to the pros are also the very same products that make it to the hands of your average gamer, regardless of skill level. I know I’ve been using Steelseries products for years now and will continue to do so as long as they keep pumping out quality products.
So with that said, here’s the very best that Steelseries has to offer in 2021.
APEX 7 TKL AND AEROX 3 WIRELESS LIMITED EDITION GHOST COLLECTION

APEX PRO ADJUSTABLE MECHANICAL KEYBOARD
If a TKL keyboard isn’t your thing and you prefer a more traditional, full-sized layout, then Steelseries has you covered with Apex Pro and its first-of-its-kind adjustable mechanical switches. This is thanks in part to its patented OmniPoint switches that allow for customizable per-key sensitivity. The switch can be activated at a high, sensitive actuation point of 0.4mm, or as low and long as 3.6mm.
Other notable features include five onboard profiles on the keyboard, an included magnetic wrist rest, and an OLED smart display that allows users to customize the actuation and lighting straight from the keyboard. It also shows instant notifications
from apps like Discord and Spotify, and games like CS:GO and Dota2.
