  • Passthrough ports.
  • Sturdy cable.
  • Pudding keycaps
  • RGB is impressive.
  • Media keys and scroll wheel.


  • A bit of a grease magnet.
  • Shiny keycaps are slippery.
  • Lots of competition around this price-point.

KitGuru says: There are lots of other keyboards out there in this price range, but If you’re looking for impressive RGB and something that is really sturdy this is a great buy. The HyperX Alloy Elite 2 delivers the key specs needed for gaming and it handles itself well in pretty much all situations. The pudding keycaps are also very easy on the eye.
