HyperX Alloy Elite RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Well I just ordered this keyboard with the Cherry MX Blue keys, should be here on Monday, really good reviews and got it using my reward points from Amazon, I'll post some Pictures when I get it. I've had a few keyboards over the years, Corsair K90 with Cherry reds when it first came out, 2 Duckys and they are still going strong especially the Legend....best keyboard I've had. But since I've seen the Asus Flair and this HyperX Elite the flashy lights and media keys got to me...I just wish Ducky would come out with the media key layout and then you would have a Wonderful keyboard!

Re: HyperX Alloy Elite RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Well this baby is built like a tank, 3.5 lbs, so far so good, usb pass through, 3 different levels of brightness plus completely off, software for what I use took me a few minutes to figure out to set a static color for the entire keyboard, it does a ton of stuff I'll never use. Keyboard feels just like my Duckys, really for the little bit I've used it, feels better than my Shine 5, the spacing is better, more like my Ducky Legend....now let's see how long this baby last!

Re: HyperX Alloy Elite RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Well having this keyboard for a couple of days now I'll have to say its a very nice device, on par with my Ducky Shine 5, the build quality is excellent. Glad I went with this over the Asus Flair keyboard, which at Amazon is taking a beating by the people who bought it!
