The SteelSeries Apex 3 gaming keyboard is on sale today. You can grab the full-size keyboard for just $34.99, which is $15 off what it normally goes for and the best price we've ever seen. Or you can grab the tenkeyless version, which forgoes the numpad, and saves you a few more bucks at $31.99. That version normally sells for around $45, and today's deal puts it within $2 of the lowest price we've seen.
The choice is mostly a personal one. Do you want the extra numpad on the right or do you want something a little more compact? The full size version also comes with a wrist rest if that matters to you. Either way you're getting a great product at an even better price.
These keyboards are incredibly durable and built to last. Plus they have a lot of features you're going to like as a gamer, including a gaming switch that makes the keys whisper quiet. That can be super important if you are trying to focus on the game. It could also be a big deal if you're into recording your gaming sessions either for a video platform like YouTube or while playing your games live on stream. You don't want that annoying sound of a clicky keyboard in the background while you're trying to explain your next step or talk to your live chat. This keyboard can eliminate all of that while still giving you a great experience.
Both versions of the keyboard are IP32 rated. That means they have resistance to both water and dust up to a certain point. I wouldn't go scuba diving with them any time soon, but if you happen to spill a little energy drink on the keyboard you won't have to worry about ruining it. Just clean it up and get back to gaming!
Some of the other features include 10-zone RGB illumination (8-zone in the TKL keyboard), which allows you to set creative color schemes and get reactive effects to whatever you're doing. The full size keyboard also comes with a wrist rest for full palm support and extended comfort. You also get dedicated media controls that let you adjust the volume and other settings on the fly.
