What customers say about "Size & Weight"
HyperX Alloy Elite (HX-KB2RD2-UK/R1) RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • Great full sized RGB keyboard for gaming, I love it.
  • Size wise the whole qwerty keyboard section is about 19cm x 6cm and that’s a bit smaller than I would ideally like.
  • Superb quality, The keys feel nice and chunky and the base is made out of metal giving it a really nice cool feeling and a bit of weight to resist those intense moments in gaming.
  • This one seems to be very well constructed and has the physical weight to go with it.
  • The palm rest can be left off and the top gaming keys have a set of alternate keycaps that can be fitted if you wish (extractor tool included).

What customers say about "Keys"
HyperX Alloy Elite (HX-KB2RD2-UK/R1) RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • This keyboard is bad ass, the key feel is perfect for me, just the right amount of click, lots of additional features and buttons, looks awesome, love the different coloured keys for easy identification, if your looking for a good gaming board look no further!
  • The registry point of the keys is also super high, it took me a while before I got used to the fact that if i let my hand rest on the board too hard i could start triggering a key.
  • Keep in mind the key mechanisms are MX reds, they do not have the tactile feedback or distinct click of the MX blues on my previous keyboard.
  • The key caps which come on the keyboard feel very high quality and the media keys and lighting modes switch are very nice and practical.
  • Very good keyboard because if the genuine cherrymx switches, great multimedia keys and fantastic rgb lighting and macro recording

What customers say about "Features"
HyperX Alloy Elite (HX-KB2RD2-UK/R1) RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • The RGB lighting is controlled by a piece of proprietary software that allows for a very large degree of customisation in terms of lighting and the effects when striking the keyboard.
  • Overall this keyboard is great and the lighting and performance is amazing, but there a few little problems with it.
  • The keyboard itself is alright, however I feel the NGenuity software that you need to use for the macros and lighting is so bad that it genuinely affects the rating of this product.
  • Bought this as a replacement for a previous keyboard that lost a couple of keys due to extensive game play, this one is great the rgb lighting makes life easy when you can set it up for certain games so only the controls for that game are lit
  • Very good keyboard because if the genuine cherrymx switches, great multimedia keys and fantastic rgb lighting and macro recording
