HyperX Alloy FPS RGB

HyperX Alloy FPS RGB

The Alloy FPS RGB is a mechanical keyboard from HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston.

Gaming Keyboard with Kailh Silver Speed Switches

The keyboard was revealed in September 2018 and it offers many features valued by gamers. The Alloy FPS RGB has full n-key rollover, offers flexible RGB lighting and has space to store up to three different profile configurations on-board. It comes with a detachable cable of 5.9 ft (1.80 m) length and it has an additional USB port that can be used to charge a phone or another device. It really can only be used for charging though, so it’s not a fully-featured USB passthrough.

While its predecessor Alloy FPS Pro featured Cherry MX switches, the Alloy FPS RGB comes with Kailh Silver Speed switches. Those linear switches have a rather short actuation distance and require less force than Cherry MX Red.

"HyperX's Alloy FPS line gets an RGB upgrade, but the basics stay the same. This is still HyperX's most quietly competent keyboard, with few standout features but an attractive design and an affordable price."

"Die Tastatur überzeugt sowohl technisch als auch optisch und bietet im mittelpreisigen Segment der mechanischen Tastaturen eines der derzeit besten Produkte am Markt. Käufer müssen allerdings auf separate Multimedia- und Makrotasten verzichten."
