The review is about the Apex Pro Keyboard, NOT Apex 7.
Adjusting the actuation is great! I can feel the difference in games with their super fast actuation. Typing is just the reverse though, I have a lot of typos with the super fast actuation. Which isn't a problem at all, because you can switch profiles on the fly and have one of the best typing experiences imaginable with super deep 3.6 mm actuation point. It's like having multiple keyboards at once, and being able to change them effortlessly to suit the task at hand.
Some disadvantages I'd like to point out:
- Not waterproof. Be careful with it.
- Only the main block uses omnipoint switches. Not a big issue considering you don't really use the other keys, but that's a good reason to make a 60% or TKL Keyboard with only omnipoint switches, no? After using TKL keyboards I've really appreciate the extra space. I highly recommend the TKL version over the full one, once it actually releases.
- O-rings will prevent the 3.6mm actuation point from working properly, and I really didn't like how O-rings felt on this keyboard. Not really an issue considering that the keyboard is already quite silent even without any O-rings.
The Apex 7 Keyboard has mechanical switches guaranteed for 50 million keypresses. Red switches are known for their consistently smooth movement from top to bottom without any bump, allowing for lightning-fast actuation. An integrated OLED Smart display with on-board storage is your command center for on-the-fly info from your game, Spotify, or Discord, and provides software-free customization for tweaking and saving your settings. An unbreakable aluminum alloy frame makes it a standout mechanical keyboard.
