HyperX Alloy Elite Gaming keyboard unboxing with Ed Baily

We recently travelled down to see the Kingston team and HyperX European Business Guru Ed Baily unboxed their latest Alloy Elite for us. Its worth pointing out that Dominic has just reviewed this for KitGuru over HERE so you may want to check out our full review today as well if you are interested in buying this new high spec gaming keyboard.

Watch via our VIMEO Channel below, or over on Youtube at 1080p HERE

This particular keyboard is not full RGB (they have the Alloy Elite RGB for that), however for an extra £20 spend over the Alloy FPS you get a wrist rest, volume slider, dedicated media keys and one button LED controls. Seems like money well spent to us.

Be sure to check out Ed Baily’s unboxing above, on our Vimeo and YouTube channels.
