A fantastic choice for typing or gaming, the Alloy Elite RGB isn't just flashy, it's packed with excellent features and built from premium materials, and one of the best gaming keyboards on the market.

The MX Brown switches built into the Alloy Elite are Cherry's midrange solution for those that don't want to tilt all the way into Blue territory (clicky and tactile) or Red (quiet and linear). They're a sort of happy medium, providing a little bump of tactile feedback with every button press but nearly as silent as Reds. They're the key to why this configuration of the Alloy Elite RGB is such a perfect hybrid, suitable for both gaming and typing.
