Mice are a huge deal for gamers everywhere. Feel, comfort and performance are a must for anyone planning on getting the best out of their gaming experience. HyperX has sent us one of their new additions to the gaming mouse lineup, the Pulsefire Surge. After their first ever mouse the Pulsefire FPS, were excited to see what HyperX has added in their development for 2019.
Packaging and Contents
We have covered quite a few products from HyperX as of late and we are confident we will not be disappointed. As you can see above the packaging adheres to the professional looking concept. On the outside there is all the teams sponsored by HyperX as well as many features which we will cover a little later in the review. The surge sits in its home here surrounded by black cardboard. All of the moving glossy parts are also covered in a protective film to eliminate scratches during transport. An obvious addition to the surge is the manual, warranty info as well as a thank you card from HyperX. The quick start guide describes all of the available buttons and how to connect this peripheral.1.8 Meters of braided cable span the length to the USB port. That is it for everything in the box, now lets take a deeper look at the mouse.
The way a mouse looks is almost as important as how it performs now a days and there is an abundance of sleek looks and ample RGB within the Surge. Here we see the front view of HyperX’s Surge. The braided cable runs right of the front of this ambidextrous mouse. In addition we see the DPI button up top as well as part of the RGB ring encircling the entire perimeter of the mouse. Both the left and right mouse button are rated for 50 million clicks and consist of Omron switches.The other side view lets us see the curves of this “Thicc”gaming beast. The RGB traces the curve perfectly. Right below the RGB line is a slightly grippy pinky and four-finger rest area. This is a huge upgrade to the FPS as we found the FPS grips to be too sticky.We get a great look of the symmetrical nature of the Surge in the picture above. You can quite obviously trace the RGB here as well as take a look at HyperX’s RGB logo which can be controlled separate from the other LED’s.To the opposite side of the mouse is where mouse button three and four are located. The addition of these mouse buttons is very standard in today’s market with all the big companies adding them in to improve functionality. Underneath this aesthetic beauty is the real meat and potatoes. We are excited to see how the two huge friction-less pads perform. If you focus your attention in on the center you will find a PixartPMW3389 sensor. This sensor is among the best in the market and gives the user up to 16000 dpi.
