HyperX Alloy Origins Gaming Keyboard Review

When it comes to HyperX’s gaming keyboards they are not overly flashy or have features most gamers just won’t use, they mean business. Honestly, I think more keyboards need to be designed this way as it is more about performance than looks or marketing tag-lines. Today we are taking a look at the HyperX Alloy Origins Gaming Keyboard which features the company’s new Aqua switches that are said to offer a tactile, but non-clicky experience. Besides the new switches we have a full-size gaming keyboard with an aircraft-grade aluminum body, per-key RGB lighting, a detachable USB-C cable, and much more! Let’s jump in and see what this keyboard is all about!

Special thanks to HyperX for providing us with the Alloy Origins Gaming Keyboard to review.
