The HyperX Alloy Origins Core wired mechanical keyboard has dropped to $62.99 through the Microsoft store. This is an unusually low price that even beats out other places you can find it on sale, like Amazon where it's still $70 even while discounted. The keyboard regularly sells for around $90, and today's deal at Microsoft is the lowest price we have ever seen.
We have seen deals on other compact HyperX keyboards before, but even the 60% HyperX Alloy Origins is going for $100 right now at Amazon. We do love this lineup from HyperX though and gave the Origins 60 4.5 stars out of 5 in our review.
A great option if you're looking for a compact keyboard with some satisfying mechanical switches. This price from Microsoft is better than anywhere else right now.
HyperX makes quality keyboards, and the Origins Core is no exception. This is a keyboard built-to-last no matter how you slice it. It is built with a full aircraft-grade aluminum body, which is not only meant to be durable but also feels solid. The mechanical switches will also last you a long time as they are rated to last for up to 80 million keystrokes. That's a whole lot of typing.
You won't have to worry about this keyboard getting jostled around, which is important because the compact design makes it great as a portable option. Carry it with you to competitive events or just because you need something for school or for working on the road. The detachable cable makes it easy to pack, too. Just take the cable off and keep it with you wherever you go.
One of the great things about the keyboard is its per-key RGB lighting. You can customize all of the RGB and create your own personal light show. Use HyperX's free Ngenuity software to really change every aspect of the customization. Add some preset dynamic lighting effects or create something new.
