What is the Alloy Elite RGB?

It offers complete color customization with NGenuity software with up to three custom lighting profiles that can be saved directly to the keyboard’s onboard memory for on-the-go lighting.

Beautiful and well lit LED RGB Keys

How to Use

The HyperX Alloy Elite RGB is a true plug and play keyboard that works directly out of the box but enthusiasts can push this tech to the limits with personal settings to match one’s own tastes.  The Keyboard requires 2 USB Slots which may hamper users who’s laptops offer minimal connections but the keyboard does offer a USB port of its own which I use for plugging in my HyperX mouse or my Xbox One or Scuff Controller. The extra keycaps provided are great for breaking out the necessary keys for gaming and are easily removed with the provided tool.

Why You Should Buy

The Alloy Elite RGB is a must have for any serious gamer who needs every click to sustain his or her combat advantage. It is as solid a keyboard as you could ask for. Strong, elegant and sleek as always comes to mind with the HyperX Line of equipment. The Alloy Elite series offers a workhorse of a keyboard with the beauty of a show pony. I love this keyboard so much that I cringe whenever I have to help someone with their PC and sub-par keyboard. You may never realize what you are missing not just in gaming but in everyday usage by not owning a truly refined piece of equipment such as this!

Price & Availability

You can purchase your new Alloy Elite RGB for $169.99 at AmazonBest Buy, or directly from HyperX.

  • After spending countless hours researching every mechanical keyboard offering on the market, I feel I made the absolute best choice. This HyperX Alloy Elite with Cherry MX Brown switches keyboard is an outstanding keyboard. The construction is first rate, it has a professional feel, it is heavy in weight so it is very stable. The key board action rivals the great buckling spring keyboards of yester-year that eventually gave way to the ultra cheap junk rubber dome keyboards that are pervasive in the industry today.
