I love finding a unique low price on a popular item. The sort of price where we haven’t seen it before and probably won’t again for a little bit. The HyperX Alloy FPS RGB mechanical keyboard is down to $54.99 on Amazon. That’s a 50% discount off a keyboard that regularly sells for around $110. Even when it does go on sale it usually only drops to around $80. A few months ago the HyperX site had it for as low as $65, but we’ve never seen it go as low as today’s drop ever before. It looks like this keyboard may have been discontinued since it’s out of stock at HyperX, which may mean we never see this deal again after the inventory is gone.
If you’re looking for a full-size 104-key keyboard, the Alloy FPS is the way to go. Despite being full size it still manages to be as compact as possible, so it’s great for FPS games where you need to keep your mouse as close as possible. It also uses a detachable cable, which makes it great for moving around. Store it easily in your backpack on the way to a LAN or a tournament or just moving from class to class. It’s also very durable with a solid steel frame, so it won’t break or get messed up when jostled around.
The keyboard has a USB pass-through port. You can use this to connect other devices without needing them to reach the back of your computer. That’s great for mice, headsets, or even for charging a mobile device if necessary.
This is a mechanical keyboard, and it has Kailh Silver Speed mechanical switches. These are tactile switches with good feedback and super quick actuation. They are durable, too, with a rating up to 70 million keystrokes. The ultra-light actuation force means every action you commit to happens a fraction of a second faster. If APM is important to you because of the shooters or RTS games you play, this keyboard won’t let you down.
With 100% anti-ghosting and full N key rollover, it doesn’t matter how fast you type or how many commands you enter at once. The keyboard will remember and execute everything. No important inputs will be forgotten.
