Head over to the Microsoft Store to grab the HyperX Alloy FPS Pro mechanical keyboard on sale for $49.99. That's a $20 discount off the keyboard's regular price, and most other retailers like Best Buy are still selling it at the street price.
This particular version comes with Cherry MX Red mechanical switches. I prefer Red switches because they have great feedback when you're typing without being overly noisy. HyperX does make a Cherry MX Blue version, but unfortunately that one is not on sale at the moment.
A very minimal keyboard for mechanical gamers who don't need a numpad. Uses Cherry MX Red switches for durability and clickiness. Portable design includes detachable cable. Has anti-ghosting and N Key rollover. Red dynamic lighting effects.
The HyperX Alloy is a beautiful, minimal keyless keyboard. That means it does not have the numpad on the side, but that's ok because the smaller size lets you be even more precise. This sort of design is preferred by a lot of competitive gamers because it brings the mouse closer to you, allowing for faster reflexes. It also just looks nicer and takes up less space on your desktop, which can be a benefit for you when space is at a premium.
It's designed with a solid steel frame and helps preserve your desktop real estate. Plus, you can take it on the go and game anywhere. Not only is it smaller due to the tenkeyless design, it also has a detachable cable. That makes it an easy keyboard to pack up when you're on the move.
The Cherry MX Red mechanical switches give you ultra responsiveness with high precision key contact. The keyboard also has dynamic LED red backlighting that you can illuminate and customize with six LED modes and five brightness levels.
