[Amazon.ca] HyperX Alloy FPS Pro TKL Keyboard, MX RED switch $68.98

Decent basic TKL mechanical keyboard with cherry MX red switches - actual Cherry MX, not HyperX reds or "compatible" clones. Metal top plate, red backlight. By basic, i'm referring to no-frills included; no macros, no customizable lighting through software, just solid color LEDs/no RGB here.

$4 away from ATL, have not seen it drop much in price since late winter/early spring of last year.

$60 at CC in store, if you can find it: https://www.canadacomputers.com/product ... _id=111574

Same price for blue switches at CC : https://www.canadacomputers.com/product ... _id=121161

Recommend getting some PBT doubleshot keycaps for it, HyperX sells decent pudding style keycaps that are $30 for your choice of white or black: https://www.amazon.ca/HyperX-Pudding-Ke ... B087QTR4CT. These are translucent and look best on RGB keyboards like the ducky one 2, but they'll work here too.

Yeah, lowest I've seen was through the MS store using GC per this thread in June 2020: microsoft-store-kingston-hyperx-alloy-f ... #p32661823

I thought this keyboard was discontinued some time ago, it had disappeared from the hyperX store when they had promos earlier this year. Also, I noticed Kingston/HyperX have been pushing their own switches on the newer alloy series RGB boards, seeing genuine Cherry MX switches at these prices is becoming increasingly rare

I've been looking for a TKL keyboard for gaming as well.
Been slamming my mouse into my fullsized keyboard's numpad too many times now.

I've been using a very old SteelSeries 6GV2 red switches keyboard.

Are these a good option or any other good TKL options in this price range?

Exactly why I bought a TKL, and this exact keyboard. I bought the Alloy Origins Core TKL not too long afterwards. They've made me a HyperX fan.

I don't know why, but I can't stand the logo in the middle of the spacebar...nor why the keyboard needs two logos visible from a single view.

HyperX Switches are effectively the same thing as Cherry MX's counter parties - or likely better to be honest.
and both should be very similar to Gateron Reds as well... (all 3 of them have very very similar actuation force and travel distance)

I personally wouldn't make a decision based off switches between them.

it's a solid option.
I've changed to 60% these days, but back when I was using my full-size, I actually ordered a 22-24 keypad (which can be set as numpad), and was using it (sideways) instead for playing games.

That's because HP bought HyperX Gaming and Kingston only still uses the brand for memory modules, but it will change to where HyperX Impact will be say Kingston Fury etc. You'll obviously see a decline in existing partnerships. Lots of companies such as Razer are also moving to in house parts, which may be comparable or save costs, but I agree, almost always there is a decline in quality.
