Final Verdict

The Alloy FPS RGB from HyperX is an excellent evolution of the original Alloy FPS. The MSRP is $110 and retails for about $100 (Amazon). This is a feature packed mechanical gaming keyboard in a package that is no bigger than your standard size one. Reclaim your desk space and still have that amazing touch typing ability that comes with a mechanical keyboard. While the keyboard works out of the box with any operating system, to unlock the full potential, you need to install the software and setup the keyboard, once, on Windows.

However, after that initial setup, the keyboard stores everything in its own memory. Once it is setup, you can bring it to any other computer and it works without any software. This is a nice compromise for people like myself that run Linux full time. It would be nice to have the functionality to setup in Linux and Mac, too. The Kailh silver switches have linear resistance with no "click" sound and the actuation length is very short. You'll be activating keys with very little force and makes typing very quick. The shorter activation length means you'll have very slightly improved reaction times. All in all, this is a worth upgrade. That being said, if you already have a mechanical keyboard that you're happy with, we aren't going to tell you to upgrade it. If you are in the market for a new keyboard, the Alloy FPS RGB is a great choice.

ASE Publishing would like to thank HyperX for making this review possible.
