HyperX Pulsefire Surge


The crazy visual flair comes from the fully customizable 32 zones of lighting, each zone being a little bit of the illumination glowing around the mouse's perimeter. Each zone is a segment, about half an inch long, of the encircling strip. On a mouse,...

32 zones of RGB lighting. High DPI range. Tactile scroll wheel. Ambidextrous design.

Software wouldn't launch on some test systems. Lefties won't be able to use side shortcut buttons easily.

The HyperX Pulsefire Surge is an adequate ambidextrous gaming mouse whose snazzy, encircling RGB lighting sets it apart, but its software needs some fixes.

HyperX's Pulsefire Surge brings in an accurate optical sensor, RGB lighting, software support in a beautifully illuminated gaming mouse.

High sensor tracking accuracy ; Beautiful RGB design

Slightly expensive

HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB Mouse Review


The HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB seems to offer the perfect balance of performance and aesthetics, boa It's only HyperX's second gaming mouse – great if you love RGB!

Super solid build quality.

Just 6 buttons could limit appeal.
