3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre Attention to Detail
By MrFastFox666 on October 12, 2021
I was very excited to receive this keybaord. I've always wanted a white keyboard, but they're quite uncommon, especially in a TKL size. Sadly, the Apex 7 Ghost was rather disappointing.

They keyboard itself looks and feels nice. Fit and finish is excelent, and it feels solid, if a little light weight. The switches feel excellent, nice and smooth, very little friction, and very linear force. The little cable guides on the bottom are also quite helpful.

Sadly, that's all the good things I have to say. The cable is horrible, it is very thick and stiff, is NOT braided, and is this weird gray color that will match nothing in your setup. It looks like it came from a cheap MP3 player from the late 90s.
The legend on the keycaps is quite ugly, it just looks like the defualt font on whatever program they used to design the keyboard. It makes it look like a cheap knockoff from china.
The wrist rest feels nice, but I doubt the soft touch plastic will hold up for more than a few years before it gets all sticky and nasty. It's also a disgusting off-white color, it looks like it has endured 5+ years of greasy sweaty palms rubbing against it, it looks like it's really old and faded.
The OLED screen is nice, but to use it you need to use little apps on the SteelSeries engine, which are very clunky and feel hacked together. It's also pathetically dim, even under artificial lighting it looks like it's in a power saving mode or something (which it isn't).
The little wheel is used to adjust the volume, and you can click it to mute your PC. Sadly, the metal surface has very little friction, so to get it to turn you need to press down on it quite a bit, which causes it to click. This makes adjusting the volume nearly impossible because you just end up muting your PC.

Sadly, I'll be returning this keyboard. It looks awesome and I like the size, but it's just a mediocre keyboard when compared to the competition. My 5 year old Corsair K65 is much better in almost every respect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Limited Edition Ghost Keyboard
Reviewed in Canada on December 5, 2021
Been looking for a new keyboard for a while now but finding a white keyboard that looks cool and is actually decent is a little challenging. Then SteelSeries came out with this limited edition keyboard and I knew this was the one. It looks so nice and clean in person, the key caps are lovely, the red switches are a nice change coming from loud and clicky blues, the build quality is solid and it feels sturdy, and I like the extra features like the USB pass-thru and the media controls. The small OLED screen is cool too but I haven't really done much in the way of customizing it yet. I mean really, you shouldn't be looking at your keyboard for in game alerts and such.

All in all if you're looking for a nice clean looking and well built white/silver keyboard, this one should definitely be on your list.

Oh and it's worth noting that because of the OLED screen, the Print Screen, Scroll Lock, and Pause/Break buttons aren't there. Not really a huge deal if you don't use those that often, but it's still worth mentioning.
