one. logo. change. ...can make a difference
It's a butterfly. No, it's a crying Pokémon. Or is it a Rorschach inkblot?
Yup! That's a skinned Rival, Apex and Siberia. Having said that.... I would still buy it if I had the $$$
it's good with the keyboard what's that extra USB
Most likely power and the writing itself. My keyboard have that
The extra USB connector is to power the two USB ports included on the keyboard. I have the Apex M800 and it's awesome.
They look flat-top chicklet keys on the keyboard, and not tall enough to be a mechanical keyboard. That would not be good for a gaming keyboard. Does anyone know if they are, or is that just a poor rendering?
It's a Steelseries APEX ... might not be mechanical
