HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Cherry MX Blue Wired Keyboard, 1000Hz Report, Anti ghosting, Red LED Backlit keys is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very clean, compact keyboard. The Alloy FPS has a very compact design that not only looks attractive but is also very functional and easy to clean. I find the Cherry MX Blues to be very crisp with what I find a good actuation force for gaming and other activities. Whilst not RGB I find the lighting to be satisfactory with its varying brightness and effects. The lighting is controlled very easily using the function key with the arrow keys. However the lack of software with the keyboard limits its lighting capabilities to set effects. The general construction is very solid and the black colouring allows it to fit almost any set up. The addition of a USB power pass through on the rear of the keyboard has proven very useful for charging devices such as my phone, allowing me to keep it within reach during gaming sessions. A problem that some people may encounter with the keyboard is that it requires 2 USB ports to be powered to full effect so ensure you have 2 spare ports before purchasing. There is however a lack of keys available for macros and whilst multimedia keys are present, there is no prebinded sleep key which I found to be an annoyance but I solved this using AutoHotKey. Overall I am very happy with this keyboard and I have found no problems of yet.
