The SteelSeries Apex 3 Water Resistant Gaming Keyboard is a full-fledged gaming keyboard created by combining SteelSeries’ cutting-edge technology with a collection of gaming-focused features.
IP32 water resistance, whisper quiet gaming switches, dedicated multimedia controls, three-way cable routing, magnetic wrist rest and brilliant 10-zone RGB illumination team up for a premium gaming keyboard experience.
Accidents happen, and Apex 3 can survive them.
With the IP32 rating, it's harder for dust, dirt, and debris to enter the keyboard, which keeps the internal components safe against the damage that buildup can cause over time. Now, you can’t put your keyboard in the dishwasher or submerge it underwater, but it will be totally safe from average, everyday accidents.
Give me the details!
Sure, IP32 is an industry standard for water and dust resistance. IP stands for the International Protection rating (sometimes also called "Ingress Protection".
The number after it classifies just how much protection is provided for internal electrical components against things like dust and water. The first number designates how much something is protected from dust, the second is its protection from water.
Help, I spilt something on my keyboard
No worries, if you are lucky enough to own the Apex 3 keyboard, all you have to do is allow the water to escape from the built-in drainage holes on the bottom on the keyboard. No need to stick it in rice as that just makes a starchy mess.
Choose from brilliant rainbow RGB effects, your favorite color schemes, or even to react when you’re under attack. Personalize the illumination to match any style. Reactive RBG effects are avaialble for certain apps and games, such as:
Low friction switches for near silent use and unmatched durability, with performance guaranteed for over 20 million keypresses.
With a simple magnetic solution for easy and secure attachment, full palm support, and durable soft touch finish, so you’re comfortable typing and gaming for as long as you want.
A clickable metal roller and media keys allow you to adjust volume and settings on the fly: rewind, skip, pause and more, all at the touch of a button.
Prevent your cable from stretching, pulling, and getting in the way. The frame has built-in channels that allow you to choose from one of three possible places for your cable to exit, keeping your desk tidy.
