HyperX Alloy Elite RGB review: A solid, Cherry MX-based option, despite its iffy software

 

HyperX's flagship keyboard has brilliant lighting and true Cherry MX switches, but it's oversized and a bit pricey. Oh, and did we mention HyperX's software utility takes up over a gigabyte of space?

Crystal-clear Cherry MX RGB lighting ; Dedicated media controls, including a volume wheel ; Software is 100% optional, and HyperX won't nag you about it

Flimsy wrist rest ; Oversized footprint, with a lot of empty space ; The software (somehow) weighs in at over 1.1GB after install

Like the Alloy FPS, HyperX’s Alloy Elite RGB is a perfectly fine keyboard. The only real issue is that it’s a perfectly fine keyboard in an ever-more-crowded market. It doesn’t undercut the competition on price the way G.Skill has, nor does it have a...

HyperX Alloy Elite RGB

 

True Cherry MX switches, per-key RGB lighting, and a slick, Corsair-style volume roller set apart HyperX's Alloy Elite RGB mechanical gaming keyboard, but its software could do with a touch-up.

Per-key RGB backlighting. Choice of three Cherry MX switch types. Dedicated media keys and volume scroller.

Software needs improvement. No dedicated macro keys.

Bottom Line: True Cherry MX switches, per-key RGB lighting, and a slick, Corsair-style volume roller set apart HyperX's Alloy Elite RGB mechanical gaming keyboard. But its software could do with a touch-up.

HyperX Alloy Elite RGB Keyboard Review: Gorgeous Design, So-So Software

 

The HyperX Alloy Elite keyboard is a beautiful, colorful peripheral with top-of-the-line key switches and a sleek aesthetic. The unoptimized software keeps the keyboard from reaching the upper echelons of gaming-keyboard greatness, but this HyperX...

Authentic Cherry MX keys ; Beautiful design ; Discrete media keys ; Great performance

Software needs some work ; Typing requires some practice

With top-notch Cherry MX keys, a gorgeous design and stellar in-game performance, there's a lot to recommend in the HyperX Alloy Elite RGB.

HyperX Alloy Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

 

It was last year when we reviewed HyperX's first mechanical gaming keyboard, the Alloy FPS. While they showed off some designs for this keyboard at CES, the final product was different and lacked the RGB lighting. Sticking with the traditional red...

HyperX Alloy Elite Is a Great, No-Nonsense Keyboard

 

HyperX hasn't been producing keyboards for very long, which only makes it more impressive that the Alloy Elite is so good. While it's not as deeply customizable as some of its competitors, and the backlighting will not suit everyone's taste, its...

Authentic Cherry MX keys ; Smart design ; Discrete media keys ; Great performance

Garish backlighting ; So-so pricing

The HyperX Alloy Elite has a spacious design, authentic Cherry MX keys, dedicated media controls and an interface that requires no software.

HyperX Alloy Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review and Ratings

 

If the absence of configuration software and a macro editor doesn't cramp your gaming style, this mechanical keyboard is a solid pick at a reasonable price.

Handsome, sturdy steel frame ; Cherry MX mechanical switches ; Lengthy, braided USB cord ; Dedicated media keys and volume wheel

No configuration software or macro editor ; No mic/headphone ports ; Uncomfortable hard-plastic wrist rest

In one other respect, HyperX has improved on the Alloy FPS with its new Alloy Elite—through its change of name. Many users find that FPS games—first-person shooters—really do a lot better if you take the time to set up your game with some key macros....

The Alloy Elite is a great entry into the gaming keyboard segment for the HyperX brand. it is a more versatile keyboard that the previously released Alloy FPS and seems to have a better design as well. You really can’t go wrong with a solid steel frame...

HyperX Alloy Elite RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard review: 'Expensive, but offers brilliant performance'

 

There's something to be said for a functional piece of kit that spruces the place up a bit, and the HyperX Alloy Elite RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard ticks all the boxes and then some. It's a sight to behold, with a steel frame, satin matte black...

Choice of three Cherry MX switches ; Discrete media controls ; Anti-ghosting

Steep price tag for the RGB feature ; Wrist rest could be bigger

We love the HyperX Alloy Elite RGB. You won’t have to compromise style for substance; it offers top notch performance and will make a gorgeous addition to your desk.

HyperX Alloy Elite RGB review

 

One of the best gaming keyboards made better with RGB

Simple, ergonomic design ; Colorful, diffused RGB lighting ; Preloaded with game profiles

RGB lighting hikes price ; Build quality betrays price point ; Underbaked software

The HyperX Alloy Elite RGB is a gorgeous and great-looking keyboard that lighting enthusiasts will love, but its software could use a little more time in the oven.
