Peripheral connection

USB

USB (Universal Serial Bus) is an industry standard developed in the mid-1990s that defines the cables, connectors and protocols used for connection, communication and power supply between computers and electronic devices.

USB was designed to standardize the connection of computer peripherals, such as keyboards, pointing devices, digital cameras, printers, portable media players, disk drives and network adapters to personal computers, both to communicate and to supply electric power. It has become commonplace on other devices, such as smartphones, PDAs and video game consoles. USB has effectively replaced a variety of earlier interfaces, such as serial and parallel ports, as well as separate power chargers for portable devices.

MX-Red

Die recht selten anzutreffenden Cherry MX-Red-Schalter sind eine Sonderform des MX-Black und zeichnen sich durch einen sehr leichten Druckpunkt und eine niedrige Betätigungskraft aus. Bis auf einige wenige Liebhaber fanden Tastaturen mit diesen Schalter keine Käufer und fristen auf Grund der hohen Fehlerrate beim Schreiben eher ein Nischendasein.

Edition 08/2016 - Die SteelSeries Apex M500 ist eine etwas abgespeckte Version der M800. Statt der hauseigenen QS1-Variante, setzt man hier auf die gerade bei Gamern sehr beliebten Cherry-MX-Red-Switches. In Kombination mit komplettem Anti-Ghosting und N-Key-Rollover wird jeder Druck registriert, unabhängig von der Geschwindigkeit und der Menge an Tasten die gleichzeitig gedrückt werden. Die Verarbeitung der Apex M500 ist prima, die robuste Stahlrückseite in Verbindung mit griffiger Plastikoberfläche sind für ein hochwertiges Gefühl verantwortlich. Die Beleuchtung wird hier durch dimmbare LEDs in blau gewährleistet. Eine Handballenauflage gibt es nicht, dennoch ist der Gesamteindruck der SteelSeries Apex M500 als positiv zu bewerten.

Edition 08/2016 - Die Apex M500 kann nicht durch ihre Ausstattung begeistern, die sich hier nur auf das Nötigste beschränkt. Stattdessen bietet SteelSeries hier ein Gerät an, das sich von der oftmals besser ausgestatteten Konkurrenz in diesem Preissegment vor allem durch das generelle Gefühl der Wertigkeit absetzen kann. Die Haptik ist exzellent und auch das Tippgefühl weiß zu gefallen. Wem es genau auf diese Punkte ankommt und daher keine großen Spielereien benötigt, dürfte mit der Apex M500 letztlich sehr zufrieden sein. more

Solide Verarbeitung
schmutzresistente Oberfläche
durchdachtes Layout
hochwertige Tastentechnik
LEDs nicht einzeln konfigurierbar
Hochstellfüße schlecht greifbar
