If you're thinking of taking the plunge and upgrading to a mechanical keyboard, you're in luck. Right now, the excellent HyperX Alloy Elite is on sale at Amazon (opens in new tab) for £99.99. It's one of the best mechanical keyboards (opens in new tab) out there, boasting a savings of £50. A little research into the historical price shows that £10 is a more realistic figure here, but even so, it still pushes one of our favourite mechanical keyboards to just a hair below the £100 mark.
The HyperX Alloy Elite comes with a full suite of dedicated media keys and a detachable wrist rest. And of course, no premium keyboard would be complete without an entire disco of RGB lighting effects that you can fully customise without the need for a software download. A unique set of access keys allows you toggle on Game Mode or adjust brightness and lighting effects on the fly.
The HyperX Alloy Elite is incredibly durable, too. The full-sized board has a solid steel frame built to withstand a lot of use—as well as the occasional temper tantrum. Sporting the top Cherry switches, this particular model boasts the Cherry MX Reds for a quiet key press.
