HyperX Alloy Origins 65 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

When I received the HyperX Alloy Origins Core RGB keyboard some months ago, I felt it was one of the best compact keyboard that I tested. However, I think I’m still missing somethin… luckily, I didn’t have to wait long to see the release of HyperX’s new Alloy Origins 65 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. I assume that many other gamers had similar thoughts on how to make a great product even better, and HyperX listened to these ideas. As a result, we received HyperX Alloy Origins 65. Even though the market followed and we can see more 60% or 65% size keyboards then we can expect that the HyperX will give us something extra, and this review will tell you why the Origins 65 is so special.

Let’s begin with specifications and features.

Brilliantly Compact

The HyperX Alloy Origins 65 is a balanced keyboard which blends compactness and functionality, but compromises nothing. A 65% form factor makes it more compact than a tenkeyless keyboard, while still offering arrow keys. With a durable, full aluminum body, and balanced HyperX switches rated to withstand 80 million keypresses, it’s as reliable as it is compact. The stock double shot PBT keycaps have the keys’ secondary functions printed on them so you can quickly locate any additional functionality you need. Let your style shine bright with the HyperX switches’ exposed LED design, and stunning lighting effects. Further customize your keyboard with macros, personalized lighting profiles, and more with HyperX NGENUITY software.

 

Functionally compact 65% form factor

An optimized balance of compactness and functionality. The 65% form factor frees up more mouse space than a tenkeyless keyboard, but keeps dedicated arrow keys, Page Up/Down, Home, and Delete keys.

 

Full aircraft-grade aluminum body

The aluminum casing keeps the keyboard structurally sound and stable when the action gets intense and the game hangs in the balance; battle after battle, night after night.

 

Double shot PBT keycaps with side-printed secondary functions

The keycaps are designed with durable PBT material that is resistant to wear, friction, and solvents. Secondary functions are printed on the sides of the keycaps for quick recognition.
