Welcome to the first published review here at APH Networks of 2017! To think Christmas is only one day of the year, and yet it seems like we have gone through a month of the holiday season already. By now, you have probably gone back to your regular music, all tired of the Christmas tunes. In addition, the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping, decorating, entertaining, and partying has now become something to recover from. However, with all the cheer and glee, it is easy to get caught up in the moment, and forget the real reason of Christmas. We may think we are celebrating this holiday in the best way possible by getting prepped for everything, going out lots, and partying, but we end up losing track of the things and people we care the most about. To me, I love Christmas, because there is a bigger meaning behind the holiday than just giving gifts and things, which is to celebrate the birth of Jesus. But for others, it is also a moment in the year to settle down and spend time with your family or friends. Sure, you may need to prepare some things, but I think it is important to be with the ones you care for. In essence, I much prefer a return to the simpler times of just having company over to catch up with while building more memories. With this in mind, today we have a Kingston keyboard, which is actually their first time at making a typing instrument. However, rather than throwing everything and the kitchen sink into this mechanical keyboard, the HyperX Alloy FPS is a stripping down of the unnecessary extras or distractions and instead going back to the basics. With a return to the foundations of a solid mechanical keyboard, is it any good? Read on to find out!
