Need a new gaming setup? Well, you’re in luck as SteelSeries have launched both the Apex 3 and Apex 5 gaming keyboards. But wait, there’s more! What is the use of a brand new keyboard if you are still using that old crummy mouse? Don’t worry, SteelSeries have also released the new Rival 3 gaming mouse. Together, SteelSeries have your gaming peripherals covered for the new year.
“There are so many gamers out there that are stuck using boring, traditional office peripherals for gaming,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO. “With these new products, we set office products in our sights and sought to retool our cutting-edge technologies and put them into products that are accessible for every gamer. No one should have to be stuck using run-of-the-mill office products for gaming.”
The SteelSeries Rival 3 gaming mouse is the perfect hybrid of performance and functionality, all without the expensive price tag. The Rival 3 not only looks amazing with its sleek Matt black finish that is enhances its software controlled RGB lighting, but its performance is on par with much more expensive mouses thanks to its TrueMove Core 8,500 CPI sensor. The Rival 3 is also lightweight, in fact it only weighs 77g, theming you can game all day and night without wrist fatigue being a huge factor. The SteelSeries Rival 3 is out now for only $29.99 USD.
What better what to compliment the Rival 3 mouse than with a new SteelSeries Apex keyboard? The Apex 3 gaming keyboard follows the trend set by the Rival 3 by focusing on performance without the associated price. The Apex 3 features a 10-zone RGB lighting, whisper-quiet gaming switches and a magnetic wrist rest that is only seen the premium Apex keyboard range. But perhaps the most useful feature of the Apex 3 is that comes with IP32 protection, meaning that it is water resistance (splash resistant) and wont short out when you accidentally spill your favorite soda all over it.
The Apex 5 build on its little brother by the addition of one of my favorite features, an OLED Smart Display. Of course, you get everything that the Apex 3 has to offer (along with the OLED display), but with upgraded hybrid switches that combine the feel of membrane switches with satisfying tactile click of a blue mechanical switch.
Both the Apex 3 and Apex 5 are available now in the US with the Apex 3 priced at $49.99 USD, while the Apex 5 will set you back $99.99 USD.
