QS1 Switch

We partnered with experts in switch technology to create the perfect switch for the M800 -- the QS1. These switches have a 3mm throw depth, a 1.5mm actuation, and only require a 45cN actuation force.

Powerful Macros

The left side of the keyboard features 6 quick-access macro keys. Along with every key on the keyboard, these are fully programmable to any keyboard key, mouse button, media control, application or macro.

SteelSeries Engine 3 also includes our feature-rich macro editor. It can handle both keypress and text-based macros. M800 can also record new macros on the fly with a simple button press.

Lighting Patterns

We built in some incredible pre-configured lighting options, like Breathe, Color Wave, Cooldown Timers and Reactive Keys that highlight the keyboard’s vibrant and crisp illumination. Further personalize Apex M800 by creating and programming your own illumination designs.
