HyperX Alloy Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review (Page 5)

DOOM & Battlefield 1

With minimal use, it is easy to see that the Alloy Elite is built with FPS gamers in mind. Considering the additional keycaps and what they offer, along with the fact that this keyboard comes without soft6ware, there is no way to program Macros for MMO gamers to use.

We do like the texture on the keycaps, as they are easy to find without having to look at the keyboard, and the quieter operation of the Cherry MX Red switches is something many will appreciate as well. Outside of that, there aren't a boat load of features to help with gaming, and with 1000Hz polling, NKRO, and anti-ghosting, the Alloy Elite feels like many other keyboards we have used for gaming.

Windows and Productivity

When it comes to the daily usage of the Alloy Elite, we find that typing is smooth and nearly silent if you do not mash on the keys. Everything we are used to on a 104-key layout is present, so there are no complaints with trying to locate things or having to use the Function key like on a TKL to get through basic tasks.

This is where the multimedia keys come into play for us, as we don't tinker with the volume much in gaming. We appreciate the addition of dedicated keys this time, and the roller bar for volume is something that many love to use as well.
