HyperX's ultra-fast $100 wireless gaming mouse is on sale for just $40


You need to bump up your mouse game. And if you're still suffering with a regular office mouse, you may not even know how bad things are. That's why you need to head over to Amazon today and pick up the HyperX Pulsefire Dart for $40 that's $60 off the MSRP and the all-time low. What's great about a high-powered mouse is that it's fast. You can move your cursor across the display with far smaller movements, making it much easier to land ludicrous in-game headshots, yes, but also launch apps, highlight some text or a spreadsheet cell, or switch tabs in a browser. The Pulsefire Dart is a gaming mouse, but its "gamery" look is not over the top, with LED lighting in the scroll wheel and the logo towards the bottom.

HyperX Pulsefire Haste Wireless review: An esports-worthy wireless mouse


The HyperX Pulsefire Haste Wireless is arguably the best wireless esports mouse currently available, being incredibly lightweight and featuring a precise 16,000 dpi sensor that takes no prisoners in high performance games. The HyperX Pulsefire Haste Wireless is built on the back of its wired counterpart's esports pedigree, sharing all the same features, including a low vertical profile that relaxes your grip through your wrist, making it easy to perform wide, sweeping movements without feeling cramped. The mouse's cleverly designed honeycomb chassis oozes style, putting it on trend with other top-notch gaming mice in 2022. It also comes with extra grips and slides so that you can personalize your setup exactly. Shipping for $59.99, the HyperX Pulsefire Haste Wireless costs $20 more than its wired cousin, but for gamers wanting a lightweight wireless esports mouse, it's a solid performer that's hard to beat.

HyperX expands into a new market with its new Pulsefire gaming mouse


Several months ago, HyperX was still predominantly a headset company. Sure, Kingston also made sure to slap the HyperX logo on sticks of RAM, but it was the Cloud line of gaming headsets that garnered the most attention. The release of the HyperX Alloy keyboard last October, however, heralded loftier aims. On Tuesday at CES, HyperX took that a step further: With the announcement of its new Pulsefire mouse, the company's now officially a one-stop shop for gaming peripherals. Despite the black-and-red color scheme, the Pulsefire seems like an obvious take on Razer's DeathAdder--same scooped shape, textured side, and those flanged mouse buttons.



From the scooped shape to the lightweight chassis to the flanged tips on each mouse button, HyperX has adhered mighty closely to Razer's popular design. That hasn't stopped the DPI Arms Race though, with the DeathAdder nowadays boasting up to 16,000 DPI, Logitech's popular G502 and its Pixart 3366 sensor touting 12,000, and so on. I don't think literally anyone in the world needs Razer's 16,000 DPI, at least not yet, but I do know plenty of people using 5,000 or 6,000 on 4K monitors because they prefer smaller mouse movements. Five buttons, light weight, generic shape, so-so mouse wheel, DPI switcher--it's bare-bones, but maybe that's fine.

HyperX Pulsefire Haste review


The HyperX Pulsefire Haste has been my main mouse for both work and gaming for the better part of the last two years, and I even featured it on our list of best gaming mice. The fact that it only features RGB lighting on the scroll wheel is a plus for me as well since I use a palm grip and any other lighting zones would be a waste. And if anyone shares a workspace or has a gaming computer that also doubles as their workstation, the limited RGB lighting lets you add a touch of personal style without being distracting to coworkers or clients. While it doesn't have tons of customizable buttons or specialized features, the Pulsefire Haste is a solid gaming mouse that suits a variety of genres from shooters and RPGs to action-platformers and MMOs. The wired version of the Pulsefire Haste sells for $49.99 (£35.99,
