The Apex 7 has an aluminium top plate and volume wheel with a plastic back. The keyboard feels well-constructed although it does have a slight flex to it. The Apex 7 also have a USB passthrough so you can plug an additional USB port into it. The stabilizers feel good and they are not too loud or shaky sounding.

Favourite keyboard from SteelSeries for many:
The Apex 7 is the best keyboard from SteelSeries, in many gamers' opinions. The Apex 7 is a mechanical keyboard that comes with your choice between a Red, Blue, or Brown SteelSeries-branded switch. The keyboard also comes in two different layout sizes: tenkeyless(TKL) or full-sized. We preferred the more compact TKL layout as it fits better on a smaller desk and looks more aesthetic with a slightly squarer shape to it.
