Anyone tried HyperX Alloy Line?

Can't find a discussion thread on it. Has Anyone tried the hyperx alloy FPS or elite long term? Thoughts?

I dont like the fact they only do RGB or RED HORRIBLE LED backlight, otherewise they seem to be pretty good or they pay a lot of pro player teams to force them to used the keyboards.

Here in Argentina, HyperX is very popular due the agressive price and also offer VERY good rewards to the resellers. The quality is very good on par with the big names. I don't see in my job too much RMA of their products specially the keyboards, they rarely fail.
I own a Alloy FPS Blue over a year ago and is working just fine, the only complain is the space bar is a bit loose. I tried the Alloy Elite the construction and quality is very similar but with rgb and media keys, i doub about the durability of that "volume wheel" and the arm rest is a cheap ass piece of plastic.

Ye, my biggest gripe is the lack of stability on the bigger keys, not just the spacebar tbh. It feels off when you are playing something fast-paced.

Wanna know as well. People write they are good keyboards. Was wondering are they really good or it's just marketing.

I have been using the Alloy FPS with MX Blues since they right after they released, and it's my favorite keyboard by far. I previously had a Razer Blackwidow with MX Browns, and a Corsair K70 with MX Reds. I really like the fact it's a very minimal keyboard, red back lighting which is all I need, and the metal frame makes it very sturdy. I'm really happy with it. It's held up well with all my gaming, and I mainly play FPS.

The alloy series is one of the best I had the pleasure to use. I got to play with the alloy fps pro at Gamescom 2017 and it was amazing. I would have gotten one instantly if I hadnt bought a ducky one tkl 3 months before and the fact that the alloy pro doesnt seem to be available with a German keyboard layout.

I bought the Hyper X alloy Elite RGB. Absolutely love it. Great build quality, beautiful looks, Cherry MX Brown keys. I got it on sale for 139 at BB. Worth every penny.
