HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review


Final Thoughts And Conclusion

Coming to the market with a price tag of $99.99 shipped you would think the price tag is a bit high for a no frills gaming keyboard like the HyperX Alloy FPS, but what it lacks in features it more than makes up for in performance and quality. This is one solid keyboard and appears to be built to last for years of use, if you happen to see one at a retail store just pick it up and press it’s keys and you will see this thing is not only heavy, but is sturdy as hell.


It was truly a pleasure to review the HyperX Alloy FPS because as an avid FPS gamer myself I just want to frag. The simplicity and ease of use of the HyperX Alloy FPS allows me to go into my gaming session and just have fun without having to worry about all the bells and whistles of other more feature rich keyboards in this price range. Features that most FPS gamers never even use.


Although I wish the HyperX Alloy FPS came with a better instruction manual I can’t really ding it for that. It does exactly what is was built to do and that is save some desk space and give FPS gamers a keyboard that can get them up and fragging in no time as well as giving them some customizable options in regards to the lighting of the keys.


The Cherry MX blue switches are a very nice addition as they are very sought after in mechanical keyboards. The only drawback to these switches is how loud they are. If you are trying to game in a quiet environment… I wish you luck my friends. With allo f that said I truly liked the HyperX Alloy FPS and will continue to use it for all of my gaming sessions. Not too sure I will be using to write any essays or anything like that as I am sure at some point the clicking of the Cherry MX keys would become a distraction. But we all know this keyboard wasn’t made to write school papers…. Right?

Legit Bottom Line: The HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is well-built with Cherry MX Blue switches and should be fine if you are okay with the switch noise and lack of media keys.
