The HyperX Alloy Origins 60 is one of the best mini keyboards I’ve ever tried – even though I still couldn’t wait to put it aside once I was done. This tiny $100 peripheral perfectly captures both the conveniences and frustrations of the divisive mini keyboard design, but it does so with HyperX’s signature no-nonsense design philosophy. I can’t promise that you’ll like the Alloy Origins 60, but I can promise that if you have your heart set on a mini keyboard, it’s worth considering.

Like other HyperX keyboards, the Alloy Origins 60 has excellent key switches, a smart physical design, pretty lights and good-enough software. And, like other mini keyboards, the Alloy Origins 60 requires a sizable learning curve for anything outside of gaming. It’s a niche product, to be sure, but it’s a nice product done well.

It’s difficult to review a mini keyboard without evaluating the mini keyboard design itself, which is decidedly not for everyone. Still, the HyperX Alloy Origins 60 delivers where it counts, with great performance and solid build quality. If you’re willing to sacrifice 40% of your keyboard, the Alloy Origins 60 might be one of the best gaming keyboards you can get. Read our full HyperX Alloy Origins 60 review for the full story.
