    "I am tough on keyboards, so when a friend suggested a Apex brand, I was a little skeptical. I decided to finally give it a try and it has not only met my expectations, it has exceeded them. Good solid keys and excellent lighting have made this my favorite keyboard. I have really put it through the ringer and it still keeps working like new."

    "The keyboard feels very sturdy and is quite comfortable to use but I would not recommend it for writing full time. Although I like the keyboard somewhat I would probably spend the extra money for cherry keys next time around."

    "This will ultimately come down to your personal preference of Corsair vs Logitek. However, this keyboard is pretty much flawless in terms of use. In looks? It's a little off to me, but I can understand that's personal preference. "
