HyperX Alloy FPS RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review (Page 6)

In the fast paced action of DOOM, it is hard not to give props to the Kailh Silver Speed switches. We are used to much stronger springs in the switches we use day to day, and with little force required to actuate the switches, and the travel distance cut shorter than most, we were able to dodge plasm balls and whatever else is flung our way. However, when playing PUBG, we also noticed the ugly side of having a keyboard with soft springs and short throw.

Moment and our clicks being recorded were fine, no functional issues with the way the Alloy FPS RGB worked at all. However, when hiding or waiting to ambush an enemy, we did find that just the weight of our fingers resting would sometimes trigger movement of the character, and even worse, when stretching a finger for the F key, while gaming, we found ourselves jumping across the doorway rather than opening the door. Other than that, the Alloy FPS RGB has been part of an upswing for our stats in PUBG.

Windows and Productivity

When it comes to searching the web, answering emails, or writing this review, we find that the Alloy FPS RGB is not going to replace any of our blue switch keyboards any time soon. There are two reasons for this actually. The first reason, we have explained many times, and it is that we have fat fingers.

When it comes with linear switches, and the fact that they are some of the lightest switches in the game, we are constantly adding letters here and there or an odd number or two as we type our way across the keys.

The second reason isn't a deal breaker, but the fact that the keyboard will vibrate and resonate when in use is something that will cause a numb feeling ion your fingertips. This is likely due to the limited support in the bottom half of the fame, and whether flat or on its extended feet, the noise and feeling was there.
