Throughout the decade, there are brands like Apple, Razer and Samsung that always focus on the mid-range and flagship products. SteelSeries is one such gaming peripherals manufacturer that delivers impeccable quality but with an increased pricing which now comes down to three super-affordable products.
The newly launched gaming mouse named Rival 3 and the gaming keyboards Apex 3, Apex 5 are designed to appease the entry level gamer. After all, despite what the illusion claims that PC gamers often spend $2000 or more on their gaming rigs, the average person can hardly go anywhere up to $500 or so. With such tight budget, they can’t spend $80 or $120 on gaming mice or gaming keyboards.
Ideally addressing the entry level gamer, SteelSeries has launched the Rival 3 gaming mouse which can go up to 8500CPI, has TrueMove Core sensor and 60 million click ratings. Priced at just $29.99, it delivers the quality the brand is known for without too many frills that most gamers can’t make use of.
The Apex 3 gaming keyboard uses POM reinforced membrane which means it is the average keyboard but with RGB and a gaming touch while the Apex 5 is much more expensive with hybrid mechanical keyboards. Mechanical gaming keyboards are always on the expensive side and it costs $99.99 which is okay for those who really need those buttons.
For everyone else, the Apex 3 is an easy choice as it costs $49.99 well within the budget range. Both these keyboards have manual volume wheel so that you can adjust your music or game volume on the fly. The comfortable wrist pad enhances your gaming experience and it also has IP32 water resistance rating. The SteelSeries Apex 5 uses OLED display to showcase game stats, uses a tactile blue switch and falls on the higher end of the spectrum for anyone who would want to go mechanical but not spend $300 or more on a gaming keyboard.
