There are two things that stand out about this new mouse from Kingston HyperX, the moniker they hung on it and the RGB programmability. The Pulsefire Surge may sound like a special attack you need to charge up but The Tech Report found it to be fairly generic, from the shape of the body to the Pixart PMW3389 IR LED sensor. However, for those who love to put on a lightshow, the HyperX NGenuity software offers a unique trick. You can program the 33 RGB LED clusters individually, offering a chance for a truly enlightened mouse, if you are willing to pay the $70 MSRP.
"HyperX's Pulsefire Surge starts with a proven design and rings it with an array of configurable RGB LEDs to let gamers enjoy both form and function. We put the Pulsefire Surge to the mat to see whether it games as well as it glows."
