Then you probably shouldn't be looking at Tenkeyless keyboards?laugh out loud
You really need to mention what switches it has. (Cherry MX Red)
This is a pretty good price for an entry level mechanical keyboard. If this is your first mech, you'll probably be very happy. Just be careful. There is quite the rabbit hole here if you get sucked in. I got a very similar keyboard for a similar price about 5 years ago. Now, I'm looking at building a custom keeb that costs more than my entire desktop setup. Be careful.

I've been using this keyboard for over a year now but the MX Blue variant and it's pretty good. Don't have any complaints.

Got one some months ago but don't use it anymore. Good feel but the risers don't lift the rear up enough to get a comfortable angle for me. Got tired of propping it with wadded napkins basically.

You may also want to consider the $50 G.Skill KM360. Same Cherry MX Reds, white LEDs, Aluminum Plate (HyperX uses Steel, both have advantages/disadvantages), comes in white also, and detachable USB-C cable (HyperX uses ancient USB Mini-B cables which harken old blackberry days...). They HyperX does have multimedia keys which the KM360 does not if that's a deal breaker.

What are the disadvantages with the ancient usb mini-b cables?

Alloy...does it mean it's metal build, or just the name?

When Amazon had it on Black Friday for the same price (7 cents cheaper but oh well), I got one.

Package comes in, brand new box, the whole F row key-caps out of place, like someone snagged them off.
Maybe just a one off, but did not leave a good first impression.
I start using it for gaming and typing. Just not for me. Key-caps ridges are too high, it makes it difficult to move/reach other keys when WASDing especially if moving fast.
Typing on it with Cherry MX Reds felt very empty, and it does not very good. Subjective, but. I am sure I had to get used to it but I kept making too many mistakes when typing and rarely do.
Returned. I think that for 50 bucks its a good keyboard but.. I would not recommend, or at least I'd do more research to ensure thats what you really want. Especially with the slew of options out there nowdays.

Can you tell me the reasoning for even saying this? I don't quite understand if I'm honest. Either way, try TKL 8f you haven't. I used to always want the numpad too, then I tried a TKL, never went back.
