HyperX Pulsefire RGB Gaming Mouse
From the left, the Pulsefire Surge RGB is defined as a top and bottom with the white plastic that runs down it, which is where it is backlit with RGB LEDs. The top section is made of textured plastic, while the lower part, contain the pair of high gloss buttons, is covered with a rubberized coating for added grip.
At the back we see that the RGB LED strip angles inward, makes a sharp turn to go across the bottom, and after another tight turn, angles back out to the side on the right. It is much easier to see the difference in surfaces here, and we also see the backlit HyperX log high up on the heel.
The right side looks much like it does on the left, with the obvious lack of buttons. The light bar continues along this side of the mouse as well, and below it, you can see some of the scuffs and scratches in the rubberized coating from handling it.
We did get an earlier sample where the main buttons were much closer, due to them potentially rubbing; the gap was increased to what you see here. The buttons are not flat, which helps to cradle your fingers. The cable comes out of the center and is low in the bottom half.
Between the buttons on the top of the Pulsefire Surge RGB is a rubberized scroll wheel, which does not light up, and a button set quite a bit behind it. Set from the factory, this button will swap through the three DPI levels, which can later be set to what is comfortable to each customer.
Under the mouse, we see three things worth mentioning. Extra-large feet are used at the front and back of the mouse to lower friction and support the mouse much better. The eye of the sensor is dead center of the mouse, and below it is the product sticker with the model and serial number on it.
The cable is 1.8-meters in length, it is rubberized on the inside, and covered with braided black cloth. There is not a retainable strap for those who want to use this when traveling, and the connection is non-descript too. However, if you forgot where to go to obtain the software, there is a big red sticker to remind you as you connect it to the PC.
