HyperX Alloy FPS Gaming Keyboard hitting stores
The newly released Alloy FPS Gaming Keyboard from HyperX is finally hitting stores and it adds itself to an already impressive lineup from HyperX.
Built with a solid steel alloy frame, the HyperX Alloy FPS gaming keyboard features Cherry MX Blue Mechanical switches, HyperX red LED backlighting and six preset LED modes – including a custom mode. The keyboard features an in built Game Mode which allows you to easily disable the Windows key to prevent game play interruptions, along with anti-ghosting and full N-Key rollover functionality.
The HyperX Alloy also features a USB charging port on the back of the keyboard and in the box are additional HyperX red-colored WASD/1234 keys, a detachable braided cord, and a mesh travel pouch for protection and storage on the move.
The use of original Cherry MX switches is a brilliant sign of quality. The durable steel plate and 2 year warranty also solidifies HyperX’s intentions of this being a keyboard that they feel stand the test of time.
The guys over at Overclockers already have the HyperX Alloy available for £99.95 with other e-tailers not trailing too far behind. From the images so far this certainly looks like a stylish keyboard and I hope to get one for review shortly.
