HyperX Pulsefire Dart review

Last updated:  

In addition to being HyperX's first foray into wireless mice, the Pulsefire Dart is also the company's most comfortable and responsive mouse yet.

The Good

  • Split-design mouse buttons are reliable and responsive
  • Wider body and leatherette grips make for a more comfortable grip
  • Qi wireless charging is a useful addition

The Bad

  • Scroll wheel feels a little plasticky

It's been just five years since HyperX branched out from its origins as the gaming-focused offshoot of storage brand Kingston to a fully-fledged PC peripheral manufacturer. From high-performance gaming headsets to multi-purpose mechanical keyboards, the company has covered a whole lot of ground in a relatively short span of time.

There was one notable gap in HyperX's line-up, however: a wireless mouse. While the likes of the HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB and HyperX Pulsefire Core are excellent mice in their own right, folks who prefer the freedom of cutting the cord were left wanting.

Until now, that is. The HyperX Pulsefire Dart is HyperX's first wireless mouse, and I'm happy to say it was worth the wait.


Design

  • Wider build provides more stability
  • Leatherette grips on each side provide extra control
  • Subdued design suitable for both home and office environments

Verdict

The HyperX Pulsefire Dart improves upon its predecessors in a number of key ways, making it the best mouse HyperX has yet produced. More than that, the addition of wireless functionality, a broader, more comfortable design and support for Qi charging makes the HyperX Pulsefire Dart an excellent gaming mouse that holds its own against the competition.
