HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
Last year saw HyperX launch their stunning Allow FPS gaming keyboard, which came equipped with the clickity clack of Cherry MX Blue Switches. MX Blue are fantastic, but they’re certainly not for everyone, and HyperX has listened to consumers and delivered two brand new models. The new versions come with either MX Brown or MX Red mechanical switches, and we’ve got the MX Red model in the eTeknix office today!
“HyperX™ Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard features a minimalistic, compact design that’s ideal for FPS gameplay. Its space-saving layout maximizes desktop space for FPS mouse movement. Ultra-portable, HyperX Alloy FPS comes complete with a high-quality mesh travel pouch to store and protect the keyboard and accessories, and the detachable, mini-USB braided power cord reduces storage bulk and potential cable damage. For high-precision, gaming-grade key contact and reliability, it features Cherry® MX mechanical keys.”
Designed for the competitive gamer, the Alloy features a compact chassis design, steel construction, detachable cables, and more, making it perfect to take on tour with you to LAN gaming events, or even just be a more durable keyboard in general for the stay at home PC gamer.
