HyperX Alloy Elite 2 RGB Review • User experience

Alloy Elite 2 RGB with Hyperx wrist rest (not included in the package)

I have used this keyboard both for playing online and for writing my articles and I was really happy with it.



Although obviously my hands are used to another product which is the one I use daily, managing to impose an objective, cold and detached judgment on them, I have come to the conclusion that these switch rossi Hyperx do their very well.

La Alloy Elite 2 RGB gaming keyboard is great for playing: lo switch is linear and it does not require exaggerated actuation force, which suggests it for this type of use.

Even for writing the keys return faithful feedback and comfort.

Obviously the software, but that will be dealt with in more detail in the next paragraphs.

The multimedia keys do theirs without praise or infamy, as it should be.

HyperX Alloy Elite 2 RGB Review • Design, ergonomics and build quality

The HyperX Alloy Elite 2 RGB accompanied by the comfortable and economical wrist rest.

La keyboard it is comfortable, simple but resistant.

With these three words I take responsibility for defining this product, but I will go into it further to talk about it in detail.

Il design is exceptional, also thanks to backlight (detailed later).

A wrist rest is missing, which I had specially sent from HyperX to test it in combo with the main article.


As for ergonomics I find that it meets all the standards of a top-of-the-range product, but has no praise or demerits to point out.



La build quality is outstanding, too bad only for the upper bar which is not in metal like the rest of the armor but in plastic (albeit a well-made plastic).

The classic is present USB 2.0 where you can connect any peripheral or device quickly.

If you want to buy the wrist rest, which in my opinion is really extremely comfortable and soft, you can find the link to purchase it on Amazon below!

HyperX Alloy Elite 2 RGB Review • Software and backlight

We come to what is the weak point of the keyboard: the software area of HyperX bearing the name of NGENUITY.


It is currently one beta: a good beta for heaven's sake, but still a beta.

It allows you to do basic operations like creating macro o management of hardware and lighting profiles.

It allows you to activate the most classic of game modes and to adjust the brightness (if you do not want to do it with the appropriate button).

Despite the software allow us to carry out the major operations, it is still far from lending itself a certainty of absolute quality as some of the competitors are; first of all that Corsair.

As for the backlight this gaming keyboard it is one of the best, if not the best, I have ever dealt with.

La backlight you can adjust it well 5 levels via the appropriate button or via software and is very treacherous. It is literally impossible not to display a key on it.

Then there are the most classic and numerous plays of light of all types, which can be managed by the software or by the button relating to the on-board profiles.

HyperX Alloy Elite 2 RGB Review • Conclusion

Overall I find this keyboard to be one of the best gaming keyboards on the market.

With a software more thorough and meticulous there would literally be no flaw.

The price is in fact in line or lower than that of the top-of-the-range keyboards offered by the competition and therefore makes it this one Alloy Elite 2 RGB a gem in terms of quality / price ratio.

If you want to see the product more closely you just have to see our video review: with it you can understand if this Alloy Elite 2 RGB and the HyperX mechanical gaming keyboard that's right for you!
