HyperX Alloy Origins Review: Design & Build Quality
The HyperX Alloy Origins is a full size keyboard with dimensions of 44.2 x 13.21 x 3.81 cm.
However, some gamers need a TKL (tenkeyless) gaming keyboard for that you can consider HyperX Alloy Origins Core.
All the features of both boards are equal. The only difference is that HyperX Alloy Origins is available in full size while HyperX Alloy Origins Core comes in TKL version.
Let’s get back to our review.
The entire body of this keyboard is made of aluminum which is coated with a soft finish, thereby improving the overall build quality of the keyboard.
The keycaps of the HyperX Alloy Origins keyboard are made from high quality ABS plastic, so that you will not have any problem with the keycaps.
I didn’t notice any latency when I used this keyboard which is really a good thing. Since it is a wired keyboard, it is imperative to have low latency.
We do not get wrist rest in this keyboard weighing more than 1 kg which looks a bit disappointing but the legs of this keyboard can be adjusted in 3 angles (3°, 7° or 11°) which provide a little better support to the wrist.
With the HyperX Alloy Origins, we get a 1.8 meter long detachable Type-C braided cable that makes the keyboard more portable. I found its quality very good and durable.
Overall, we get a better ergonomic design in the HyperX Alloy Origins mechanical keyboard that uses better material, which makes its build quality much better.
HyperX Alloy Origins Review: RGB Backlit
The HyperX Alloy Origins gaming keyboard features full RGB lighting and each key can be individually customized with HyperX’s NGENUITY software.
Where we get on-board memory to create 3 profiles in which we can create and save custom-designed light shows and use them directly without customizing again and again.
By the way, these backlights are brighter than other keyboards, so if you like RGB lights with high brightness then this is for you.
HyperX Alloy Origins Review: Typing Quality
I had a great typing experience in the HyperX Alloy Origins gaming keyboard. Its keys are quite well-spaced and stable due to which the typing accuracy becomes much better.
Since the keycaps are made of ABS plastic which doesn’t feel cheap at all, we never complained of fatigue during long gaming sessions.
Along with this, it is also quiet, so even if you are using this keyboard in the office, you can work peacefully.
HyperX Alloy Origins Review: Game Mode
In HyperX Alloy Origins gaming keyboard, we get to see Game Mode, with the help of which we can lock the windows key.
Due to this, there are often complaints of games being minimized during gaming.

HyperX Alloy Origins Review: Software
To better customize the HyperX Alloy Origins gaming keyboard, we can use the HyperX NGENUITY software.
Although if you are a macOS user then you will not be able to use this software which is disappointing but window users can customize the keyboard to a great extent with this.
As I told you, in this we get onboard memory in which we can save profiles so that we will not need to do customization again and again.
By the way, all the keys are fully programmable so that you can program any key to perform a specific task.
In this, we not only get to see the cloud sync feature, but there is no need for an account to use it, which makes it easy to use.
- Those looking for a premium gaming keyboard

- Good for those who need fully RGB backlight

In short, if you have a good budget, then you can comfortably invest in the HyperX Alloy Origins gaming keyboard.
