    5.0 out of 5 stars Great product!
    My son loves SteelSeries products and this keyboard is on his Christmas list this year. I caught it on sale and couldn’t be happier. I can’t wait to see the look on his face when he realizes he is getting the newer updated one versus one he has now. His old one has down very well. He is a gamer and homeschooler, so it gets used to the max. His keys on his old one are beginning to not respond, so this new one is coming at the perfect time. I have no worries this keyboard will be awesome too.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Software issue
    The media could not be loaded.  I like this board a lot because of the RGB, the actuation point which you can change and even the OLED screen to display animations or messages. I had the first Apex pro which I liked and when I saw this I bought the newest one cuz why not but the reason I gave this board 4 stars is because of the software. When using the software to change the RGB’s animation the animation stops for about 10 seconds and resumes which is a weird delay. Same with the OLED, stops and resumes after 10 seconds. But there is another thing about the animation on the OLED screen. Its play at a faster animation speed than the normal animation speed its supposed to play at. Other than the software with the board its a good board. A new cool feature it does have is a detachable USB-C cable. They did take out the extra USB slot which I don’t care about but that is probably the only thing the removed from the first board. Wish I could give this 5 stars but until Steel Series fixes the software then I will probably update my review. Also the stabilizers on this board are good.(This is probably not a good review but I want to let buyers know about the issues I was having with this)8/10Update 10/19: I returned the wired version for the wireless version and all my problems are solved as in the RGB not being delayed and the OLED screen working normally. Is it worth spending the extra $64? That is for you to decide. I will give it a 9/10. I hope SS fixes these problems for the wired version in the future.

    5.0 out of 5 stars I’m a Pro
    Let me start off by saying that I’m a professional gamer. I’m so professional, I put the “pro” in “procrastination.” And let me tell you, the SteelSeries Pro TKL 2023 keyboard is the perfect keyboard for anyone who wants to take their procrastination to the next level.First of all, let’s talk about the design. It’s sleek, it’s sexy, it’s…oh who am I kidding, it’s a keyboard. But it’s a damn good keyboard. The keys are so responsive, you’ll feel like you’re typing on clouds. And the tenkeyless design means you’ll have more space on your desk for important things, like a picture of your cat or a half-eaten bag of chips.But what really sets this keyboard apart is the RGB lighting. I mean, who needs a social life when you can have a keyboard that lights up in 16.8 million different colors? You can even customize the lighting for each key, so you can make your WASD keys look like a rainbow, or your F1-F12 keys look like a disco ball. It’s like a party on your desk, and you’re the only one invited.And if you’re worried about accidentally spilling your Mountain Dew on this bad boy, don’t be. The SteelSeries Pro TKL 2023 is spill-resistant, so you can spill as much Mountain Dew as you want (just don’t tell your dentist).In conclusion, if you’re looking for a keyboard that’s both practical and flashy, look no further than the SteelSeries Pro TKL 2023. It’s perfect for procrastinators, gamers, and anyone who wants to add a little pizzazz to their workspace. And who knows, maybe it’ll even make you a better gamer. Or at least a better procrastinator.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Beats out Wooting — edited. no longer beats wooting
    The media could not be loaded.  Edit: I’ve only had this keyboard for 3 months at this point. Never spilled anything on it, never hit it or anything like that. It now randomly types keys rf4 and space over and over randomly. Extremely annoying for a 3 month old product. I tried all the troubleshooting techniques. Most tech companies let you send the item back or destroy you product and you get a replacement quickly. I had to send about 10 pictures of the keyboard (when it has a software issue). Had to send the serial number and other information about 4-5 times. Overall took about 15 emails and a week and a half to get a code just to order a replacement. And in that time the product went out of stock. Most companies just send you a new one. Not steelseries. They waste your time until it goes out of stock. And now that keyboard you spent $180 for is gone and you now have no keyboard for months. Worst tech company I have ever dealt with. Never ever buying any form of steelseries product again in my life.I saw a bunch of hype for the Wooting 60HE all over the internet and was very interested in the features it had, but despise 60% keyboards. I saw that SteelSeries updated their pro keyboards to have the exact same functionality of the Wooting, but also had full and tkl versions. I saw many reviews on the internet saying the software of the steelseries was its main downfall, but imo the software works just fine. Very easy to understand and never fails me. I also replaced the keycaps with the white steelseries pudding caps to make it look that much better, but the default keycaps are still very nice. The sound while typing is pleasant as well, better than I expected when comparing to youtube reviews. I originally bought a refurbished version and it actually sounded incredible, it almost sounded modded to me but idk why it sounded like a custom keyboard. I highly recommend the refurbished version tbh. But the new one was cheaper on prime day so I figured a better warranty and completely new keyboard for less money was a better deal. But if you’re choosing between this and the wooting, I’d 100% choose this. I don’t see one scenario the wooting wins honestly.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect
    I really liked this keyboard, feels super smooth and had no real issues. Only reason I’m rating it 4 stars is because it takes 5-10 seconds to wake up from sleep. I’m used to a Logitech G915 tkl and it wakes from sleep instantly. If that small thing doesn’t bother you then you will love this keyboard

    5.0 out of 5 stars Really nice keyboard
    I really like the customization. However, I don’t know much about other keyboards to know how nice they are, but I have different configurations for different games and it just works flawlessly, but the application steel series uses is pretty much top of the line. I use it for several things.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product – Not Skilled Enough to Use
    Very high quality product. Bought it for the extreme actuation speed. Evidently this is best used by pro gamers because I kept typing the wrong keys by accident since it was so sensitive.

    3.0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to like this keyboard
    The main competitor to this keyboard in my opinion is the G715. I ended up buying the G715 and returning this keyboard. The G715, felt superior connection wise and overall performed better for my purposes.Pros:- Switches felt great- The double actuation thing, though niche can provide amazing flexibility- OLED screen is by far amazing aesthetically- Connection via 2.4ghz, bluetooth to mutliple devices and usb- Build quality feels greatCons:- When waking up, it would take 1-3 seconds to wake up. This means when you press any key, on wake up, you will end up missing a few key strokes. This was infuriating as a software developer as the keyboard would sometimes sleep as I am working. Then a few keystrokes will be missed as I am writing my code. This completely interrupts my train of thought.- Colors felt washed out while compared to an Apex Pro- Missing entire row of keys (print screen, lock, pause break). Not a big deal for probably 99% of users but when you use linux, lock and pause/break is useful. I understand the OLED screen covers the area but I missed those keys.- Updating firmware is a big pain in the ass. You have to disconnect and reconnect both dongles/keyboard multiple times before the GG software recognizes both peripherals. Also, sometimes the firmware updater doesn’t launch correctly.- Battery life was inconsistent. I have a kvm switch between my mac and pc. On one machine the GG software would display 70% battery life and the other 95% battery life. Which one is correct? I am not sure.

    5.0 out of 5 stars In love with a keyboard? Absolutely.
    The media could not be loaded.  The Apex Pro TKL wireless is so damn good. Customizable display, macros and dual action keys with onboard configurations and settings, Super fast wireless USB connection with Bluetooth options that work with PC/Mac/iPad /PS5 makes this a dream to use. The GG software needs improvement but once you get used to it, it’s fun to tinker with. Got a few different profiles setup with custom color settings and video loops to help identify what mode I’m using. got it on a wicked good sale ($175 if I recall) and was an easy decision to make.

    3.0 out of 5 stars RGB is Extremely Buggy
    First off everything besides the RGB/Software on this keyboard is fantastic. Lets get that out of the way.Also let it be known that I am on my SECOND Apex Pro TKL 2023 edition and they both had this annoying issue.If you have any intentions of actually using the RGB I would wait until Steel Series issues some sort of update for this keyboard/Steel Series GG (not sure where the issue lies as customer support was only sending canned responses to return the keyboard and no answers on the issue itself)THE ISSUE: The RGB patterns you select to run on a loop will randomly freeze about every 5-10 seconds and then resume again. The actions you select the keys to perform when pressed will also freeze in the same intervals. When you really ramp up the actions that the lights perform it will freeze even MORE frequently.While it may seem ridiculous to be upset about the RGB of all things, it wouldn’t be such a huge deal if the thing didn’t cost $200. Its a bit unreal that this keyboard launched in 2022 at that price point and has an RGB issue… Just want to let others know what they are getting into before dropping $200 on an underwhelming and laggy light show.If you don’t care about RGB this thing is all you could ask for in a gaming keyboard!*I will try and edit this review if there is ever an update that fixes this issue but for now ill hold on to it in the hopes that Steel Series will address it*

    5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Logitech G915 TKL Tenkeyless Lightspeed Wireless RGB Mechanical by a lot
    This keyboard is awesome. Feels like a real mechanical keyboard unlike the Logitech. Key caps are way better and more readable with the LED backlighting than the Logitech. I never used the wireless of the Logitech because the batteries die so fast with LED backlighting on. The only complaint I have is that you need the software running for the custom LED settings to take effect. You can’t save them as the default on the keyboard. I was looking at a lot of keyboards and I am very happy with my decision.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Some steps forward, some steps back
    I purchased the old Apex Pro TKL a few weeks before this new version was released, so I was able to return it to “upgrade” to the 2023 model. Here are my thoughts on the 2023 edition after having the experience of using both boards.Pros:- Detachable USB-C cable. The old model’s enormous, non-removable cable was one of the worst qualities about it.- PBT keycaps. These definitely feel more premium than the ABS keycaps of the previous model.Cons:- Unlike the previous model, there is no onboard memory for RGB profiles. This means that if you want to customize RGB lighting, Steelseries software must be running on your PC at all times. This is a huge negative in my opinion and unacceptable for a keyboard that is this expensive.- Overall build quality feels worse than the previous model. Lots of key wobble, scroll wheel and button feel like cheap components compared to the previous model.In terms of gaming performance, I haven’t noticed a difference between the two boards at all. Supposedly the “Omnipoint 2.0” switches are faster and have a lower possible actuation point, but they feel the same to me. I think the 2023 edition is a better feature set overall for the detachable cable / keycaps alone, but the poor feeling build quality and inability to customize RGB without always on software is really unfortunate considering the price of this keyboard.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Works as intended but got a flaw
    Like its ability to be adjusted as needed, but tends to be prone to turning to the right over time when in use, and the magnetic wrist rest has weak magnets to the keyboard

    4.0 out of 5 stars Best value rapid trigger keyboard
    **Pros:**1. **Performance:** The SteelSeries Apex Pro TKL with the new ‘rapid trigger’ feature is a game-changer. The difference in games like Valorant is very noticeable.2. **Customizability:** While the out-of-the-box sound and feel may not be exceptional, it’s easy to mod the keyboard. Adding foam or doing a tape mod made the typing feel and sound better.3. **Great Value:** Compared to Wooting keyboards with analog switches / rapid trigger, this one offers better value for your money. Plus, it’s more reliably in stock, so you don’t have to wait forever to get your hands on it.4. **Lighting:** The RGB lighting on this keyboard is very vibrant.**Cons:**1. **Keycaps Could Be Better:** The included keycaps aren’t top-notch, but they’re easy to swap out for better ones.2. **Clunky Software:** The software for customizing the keyboard can be a bit clunky.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced, but great keyboard
    As with any gaming keyboard, this is easily overpriced by like 50 bucks. However, I will say that among the gaming keyboards that are out there, this one really feels good to type on. I absolutely adore the customization options that come with the key switch.The magnetic wrist rest felt good at first, but started to creak as I kept using it. The keyboard itself’s build quality felt quite good, so I was a little disappointed and surprised to see that the same level of attention and care wasn’t given to the wrist rest. It’s very annoying to hear the creak and even worse to feel my wrist sinking into the magnetic wrist rest ever so slightly every time I use it.

    This is the best gaming keyboard I have owned. I still have not even messed with the activation points of the keys. It takes a little to get use to the keys but once I did it awesome. I am use to tactile keys. The app needs some updates but it’s getting there. Can’t wait for them to add more apps and games to the app. If looking for new keyboard and not wanting to create your own this is the way to go.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Garbage software holds back what could be a good product
    TLDR: the keyboards battery and charging software causes this product to barely functions, and after just 2 months of non-intensive daily use the product fully stopped functioning.I like the keyboard it feels good, the keys have a nice soft bounce the arm rest is really comfortable. The largest problem is that the keyboard does not function. Simply sneezing withing 300ft of this keyboard will drop the battery life from 90% to 5%. It does not charge well and if it does charge the battery will only last for a week fully plugged into a computer 24/7, at which point you have to magically wait and SOMETIMES it will charge up to 100% for you to use it for 25 min and it already be at 50%. Something is wrong with this product and I am not the only person who has been having this issue. really disappointed in the product and will not be buying from steelseries again.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Its Great, but has it’s issues.
    The keyboard itself is fantastic. It is ridiculously good in-game and feels great to type on. The LCD display is useful and I found it to be extremely convenient. The only problem however is the software. It’s insanely slow and clunky to use, and it’s reset my lighting profiles numerous times out of nowhere (usually fixes itself when I open the app). I do prefer this keyboard over anything else i’ve used, yet I really wish the software was better, because then it would be a flawless keyboard.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great for gaming and typing
    I bought this keyboard to replace my Logitech RGB G910, which I had purchased in 2017 for $130. That was a great gaming keyboard, but for typing it wasn’t very good at all. So I figured I was due for an upgrade and after a bit of research, settled on the SteelSeries Apex Pro TKL 2023. So far, I am very impressed at how the keyboard handles both gaming and regular typing workloads. The keys are ultra sensitive (key sensitivity can be modified) and responsive which makes typing very fast and accurate, especially compared to my previous G910 which was infamous for requiring heavy keystrokes. The Apex Pro TKL 2023 by comparison needs far lighter keystrokes.Gaming wise I would also give the edge to the Apex Pro, though it’s not necessarily a fair comparison as the Logitech is a much older keyboard but since that is my point of reference I will go with it. Another thing I love about this keyboard compared to my old Logitech G910 is that it comes with a decent assortment of preloaded RGB color profiles. This means I don’t have to install SteelSeries software unless I really want to change to a custom profile. The G910 by comparison had only one preloaded RGB profile and as far as I know, you had to have the Logitech software running to be able to set a custom profile.These manufacturers do that because they want you to download their software so they can further pull you into their ecosystem, which is why they limit the amount of customization you can do without the software. SteelSeries is no different in that regard, but at least they have a lot more stock profiles to choose from.Anyway, all in all a great keyboard that can multifunction for gaming and regular workloads and highly recommended.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great keyboard, wireless unecessary
    The wireless version goes to sleep after a minute or two of no interaction. Making it frustrating to use wirelessly. You wake up the keyboard by tapping a key, and it takes like 3-5 seconds to start, which is way too long when it shuts off so often. Also it’s sad to see Steel Series cut costs on this product. The main qwer keys are made with the new nice switches. But the arrow keys, function keys and home keys are a different switch. Minus a star for cutting costs on a $250 keyboard.

  39. K O

    4.0 out of 5 stars One of the top 3 mech boards
    If you are like me and looking at this board, you may be getting frustrated at how hard it is to find that nearly perfect board that should exist, when you’re willing to drop over $230.Pros:- Omnipoint switches work as advertised — if you like super fast response time, you can’t beat these. These switches also have excellent bounce and no ping.- PBT keycaps are nice, and switch cross-stems are compatible with a lot of after-market keycaps. Overall a solid thock.- Unlike other small wireless boards (ahem Logitech G915 TKL…), this has no rattle- Very light and quite compact even among TKLs, makes for a good portable board in a TKL case.- The volume wheel is very satisfying.Cons:- Firmware issues, firmware issues all around. There are some updates available, but even with it, the battery indicator is botched. My first piece would refuse to charge (as far as I could tell) until it was nearly drained. The second unit charged, but the battery indicator would be all over the place based on what was going on, ranging from 30% to 80% within a 4 minute span! Which is accurate? Who knows.- Also, the battery life kinda sucks. Typically lost over 50% charge with moderate LED lighting in 5-6 hours of use with an aggressive sleep timer set. Other boards lose barely 15% with this amount of usage.- The keyboard doesn’t wake up very fast, and it doesn’t register the keypress you used to wake it up. Leads to missed keystrokes often, especially if you set a low sleep timeout to conserve battery.- The only Caps lock indicator is the LED color of the key becomes white (which tbh is kinda blue, see below) when active. This is really hard to see quickly, and there is no option to use the superfluous OLED screen for this. Overall the OLED screen would have been better used for lock or battery indicator lights. This is kind of a big QoL issue for me that could be easily resolved with OLED firmware.- LEDs are kinda off. Blues are too strong, reds very weak, and have heard of folks having issues with LEDs dying, with no easy repairability.- Despite how nice the switches are, they don’t feel as good as gasket-mounted/dampened switches. The spacebar is a huge offender, with no stabilizers it is jarringly louder than every other key, but is one pressed quite often so it makes you sound like a really bad drummer. It’s hard to not compare this board to others at this price point that sound way better (see: ROG Azoth).- The USB-C 2.4Ghz transmitter is quite chonky as far as transmitters go these days (again, see ROG Azoth). This makes it project a good bit from your computer, making for a prime cable-snagger. On top of that you likely need a USB-A adapter or extension cable, which is one more component that is a failure point, takes up space and hampers portability. There’s also no dock in the keyboard for them (which they could have easily accommodated) for portability.The cons list outnumbers the pros by just a little bit much for a $200+ keyboard, hence why I returned it. Ultimately the ASUS ROG Azoth was the first and only $200+ board to check the features I wanted while having fewer cons than pros. Still, the Apex Pro TKL is a clear second, with some advantages that might tip the scales in its favor if those are more important to you.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds great, made for gamin’, but LED issues.
    I have been using this for a couple of weeks now, and it is a very very lovely little thing. I get the urge to just go and tack away at it because it is so satisfying to use the keys.The .2mm actuation takes some getting used to, but provides a very prompt response to whatever you need to do in game, just be weary of accidentally hitting another key, but that gets better with practice. The on-the-fly adjustability of actuation makes switching from a game to writing an essay very quick.The cable it comes with is very robust, and long enough for any normal setup, and the connection is very stable.My big disappointment with this purchase is the LED issues. After about 10 seconds the LEDs just freeze for like 3 seconds, making any dynamic lighting unusable, but they are still very pretty when static. I assume this is a software bug that should get patched with time, but as updates roll around on Prism, nothing gets fixed.This falls just short of “you get what you pay for” as of now, but if the LED issues were fixed, this would be money I have zero regrets spending.

    Let me start off by saying this is a great keyboard, build quality is superb. All the problems with it could be fixed I believe, but currently it’s half baked at best. The ESC key being green while it’s plugged in is annoying, even more so when it’s blinking as it charges. The caps lock indicator just makes the C key super bright which looks dumb. Why wouldn’t you just have the caps lock key light up? The real issue is you can’t save on-board profiles, so when you switch to bluetooth you are stuck with unicorn vomit since the on-board defaults are all terrible. Like you just can’t have 1 on-board profile that’s a solid color…seriously. No way to change it in the OLED display menu either, when the wired version has those options, doesn’t even make sense.So I have the wifi adapter plugged into my laptop and the keyboard attached to my main system through the USB-C. Swap to USB, then swap back to wifi, guess what, you are still typing on whatever it’s attached to though USB, completely ignoring that it’s in wifi mode. You must have their software running if you want set any custom RGB other than the unchangeable on-board unicorn vomit. When the keyboard goes to sleep mode, you can’t activate it unless whatever machine you have it plugged into though USB is turned on, even in wifi or bluetooth modes. Even then, I was having to unplug it and plug it back in for it to light up and work.If you don’t mind running their junk software and you are only using it on 1 machine, the keyboard is super well built and a thing of beauty, although skip the wireless and just go for the standard version IMO. Until they fix all the glaring flaws, stay away from this one. $250 for this thing is absurd in it’s current condition. If this was my company, the people responsible for the software/firmware decisions would be fired immediately, it’s literally that bad.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Disappointed
    It’s a great keyboard, truly responsive, fast, and one of the better products I have chosen to up my game with fortnite and comp. But the switches and the casing is very cheaply put together for the price. When I was paying such a high price I was expecting much more quality for the performance it has.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Tactile Feel of Keys is Great but Keyboard is Small
    I really like the way the keys feel on this keyboard. I have crappy hands with minimal fine movement skills so how the keys work is very important to me. On the flip side the keyboard is small in my opinion and I have trouble using it because of this. The palm pad is loose and I am adjusting it all the time and it makes noise when I am typing on the desk. It flaps up and down. I have to move my right hand off the pad to use the arrow keys. A real negative. If it wasn’t for how the keys work I would send it back.

    First off, I fell for the gimick.. The oled screen on the keyboard got me. But how often do you look at your keyboard to see a tiny screen?? The dual actuation works i guess but its a learning curve. The software is forced down your throat so you can use all its features and its pretty taxing on a system. To actually change the coloring of it you use and off shoot of the normal app and that just doesnt make sense to me at all.. Now the best part.. This keyboard sounds TERRIBLE, Scratchy keys on top of a thin aluminum plate make for a very bad sound. I even changed the keycaps trying to help it and it only made it worse. Long story short, don’t fall for the small screen and dual actuation keys because its not worth this insane price.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes it channels ghost
    I love the keyboard, but three days after my return windows with Amazon closed, it started typing on its own. I tried the keyboard on two different computers, and it had the same problem. The second computer didn’t have the Steelseries software installed, so that has been ruled out. The key spamming was very minor at first, but a month later, it’s constantly spamming keys the keyboard is now unusable.If I had only spent $20 on the keyboard, then it would be in a land fill right now.The issue started after updating the firmware to the rapid trigger firmware that was recently released. I’m not the only person having this problem after this firmware update. I have no idea what percentage of keyboards are being affected by this issue, but there are several post on Reddit and the SteelSeries discord server about it. It’s been over a month since this started and steel series still has not acknowledged that there is a problem with some of these keyboards. I will never buy another steel series product. The RMA process is a garbage. Please think twice about buying steel series products.EDIT: Three weeks after I received my RMA replacement keyboard from Steelseries, it started spamming keys like the original.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Has all the bells and whistles
    Keyboard feels very heavy but durable. Keys glides smoothly, a bit loud. Software can customize any key by color and actuation distance. Mini oled screen present to show system temps or gifs. Volume roller is small. Wireless in two formats with dongle detachable to long wire. Decent battery life.
