SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini Wireless is made of plastic and bends a little. The keycaps are thermoplastic PBT and have a superb feel, with little to no movement on the switches. The all-powerful switches include north-facing LEDs that rotate between shades quite smoothly.

The keys can even respond to numerous button pushes. For example, when I press the function key, the keyboard turns solid orange on all the keys that have a function assigned to them. The SteelSeries GG app lets you customise the colours according to your preference.

There are two pairs of angled feet on the keyboard for three typing angles. The keyboard offers Bluetooth connectivity and supports 2.4GHz wireless through an included dongle. SteelSeries claims 30 hours of use on a single charge and includes a braided USB-C connection for wired mode and charging.

Each corner of the foundation includes four rubber feet on the bottom. However, you lose some of that stability with the angled legs deployed. Also, the wired Apex Pro Mini has a trap door to hold the supplied keycap puller, which is a disgrace to lose if you want to reduce clutter, but the wireless version doesn’t.

Gaming Experience

The whole experience is quick and pleasant, particularly when using the wrist rest.

The one flaw of the SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini Wireless is that it takes an exceptionally long time to wake up. It makes no difference what platform or operating system you are running on; it takes a couple of second to wake up, which can be nasty when you are trying to log in quickly otherwise you’ve just taken a break from typing.

Unfortunately, we cannot tell you how many times we had to rewrite things due to this problem.

That’s not all the time a deal breaker. When the SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini Wireless wakes up, its terrific performance nearly belies that flaw.

Despite having less bounce than mechanical switches, the keys have a lovely and satisfying feel. Although the keycaps are smaller, they’ve a nice inward curve that keeps your fingertips in place.

SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini Wireless worth buying?

1. You want to configure actuation points and double actuation.

The SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini Wireless is more than simply a feature set. It has features you will not find anywhere else, such as programmable and dual actuation.

2. You have money.

Tiny wireless gaming keyboards are already expensive, but this one is even more so. If you can handle it and plan to use every function, it’s worth the money.

3. You need the form factor of 60%.

This small footprint gaming keyboard is optimal for gamers with limited room or who want portability.


We have mixed feelings about the Apex Pro Mini Wireless. Using a 60 percent key layout for the first time was a learning experience that took some time to get the hang of, but once established, it is challenging to return.

The added desk space is optimal for people who struggle with clutter. The all-powerful switches, which we initially dismissed as a gimmick, resulted in some of the most responsive gaming sessions we have ever had. Based on the competitive market, the SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini is a decent effort that does not stand out.
