Kingston and HyperX at PAX Aus 2016

You might all know Kingston for amazing HyperX RAM but did you know that they also now make some pretty cool peripherals?khx2

I had a chance to talk to Michael Teng from Kingston at PAX Aus over the weekend and he took the time to show me the new HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. Now it’s not often I get excited about a keyboard I have had the same Logitech G19 for 7 years now and it’s fine. I find I don’t use the  macros on the keyboard so I have all the wasted space on my desk.  The HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard takes a very different approach. khx3

Michael has offered us the chance to check out the new range of keyboards in the coming weeks but for now let’s have a quick look.khx1

Check plate texture ensures you always find the right keys without having to look away from the screen. I know I have missed kills and failed to move in time due to moving to hitting ESDF by mistake.


It’s solid, it’s sleek, and it looks sexy!  Let’s have a look at the official info from here.

I am a massive Star Wars fan and even have the Rebel logo tattooed on my right arm and even have two children named after influential female Star Wars characters from the expanded universe! Over the last few years I have played several different MMOs trying to fill the void that was created by my first experience with a Star Wars MMO world in Sony’s Star Wars Galaxies. I was told about SWTOR 2003 at E3 by a Lucasfilm representative who had intervened in a conversation about the issues that Sony was having with the Star Wars franchise. So to say that I had been waiting for STWOR for a while is an understatement! Playing SWTOR and Elite Dangerous most of the time with the odd FPS to mix it up.
