If the old adage about first impressions is true then the Alloy FPS makes a seriously good first impression. Freed from the box we find a carry bag with possibly the biggest logo we've seen printed on anything portable. Once you lift that off the Alloy FPS is revealed in all its glory. A base about as thin and small as it's possible to make whilst still providing a full size keyboard layout. The keys themselves have a crisp font, and the white HyperX logo is clean and clear against the matte black background. Included in the package are eight alternate key caps with the WASD being like diamond plate aluminium, the number keys a smoother design, and all of them in a contrasting deep red. The cable is a mini-B PS3 pad style at the keyboard end, and requires two USB ports into your computer to allow for all the lighting and phone charging offerings that the Alloy FPS has. 

One odd thing we noticed was that the Cherry font was different on some keys than others. Maybe this has occurred a lot on other keyboards, but we're pretty sure we'd have spotted it by now. Still, they feel the same in use so perhaps it's just a different batch. After all, they must produce tens of millions of them each year.
