HyperX Blue Switches come to the tenkeyless version of the Alloy keyboard

HyperX Alloy Origins Core (with Blue Switches) Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Impressions

I’m a big proponent of HyperX’s Alloy mechanical keyboard line. Over almost five years, I’ve reviewed a lot of variants of the Alloy, and I’ve never come across one I haven’t been impressed by. A lot of this is probably because HyperX knows what they’re doing right with the Alloy, and new variants don’t dev...

A good mid-tier offering with a few drawbacks

ASTRO A20 Gen 2 Review

ASTRO debuted its first A20 (Gen 1) wireless headset three years ago as a mid-tier alternative to the pricier A50. As the gaming industry prepared for the launch of the current gen consoles (PS5 and Series X), so, too, did ASTRO; this past October they launched the Gen 2 version of the A20 wireless headset, which touts a couple new features over the Gen 1 while still maintaining that mid-tier pricing.

A 60% keyboard collaboration between Ducky and HyperX

HyperX x Ducky One 2 Mini Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Black Colorway Review

Earlier this year in May, HyperX and Ducky launched a collaboration: the HyperX x Ducky One 2 Mini Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. This was an exciting collaboration that partnered Ducky signatures (like 60% keyboard size and Ducky Macro 2.0) with HyperX hallmarks (such as in-house HyperX switches with exposed LEDs). Only 3700 units were released, and they sold out very quickly.

The lightest Pulsefire mouse yet, with a delicious honeycomb shell

HyperX Pulsefire Haste Gaming Mouse Review

Earlier this week, HyperX released its latest mouse in the Pulsefire line: the Pulsefire Haste. This mouse takes the general shape and configuration shared by other mice in the same family and applies a honeycomb hex shell design to be lighter in weight. At only 59g, the Haste is 28g lighter than the Core (the previous lightest mouse in the wired P...

The Alloy Origins strikes again, this time with HyperX's in-house Aqua/Tactile switches!

HyperX Alloy Origins Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (with Aqua Switches) Review

Last October, I reviewed the HyperX Alloy Origins Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (with Red/Linear switches) and had a lot of great things to say about it. Today I’m reviewing the same keyboard, but this time with Aqua/Tactile switches. While it would be easy to just say “The Alloy Origins with Aqua switches is great, just like the last vers...

A Switch convertible charging case/stand from HyperX

HyperX Chargeplay Clutch for Nintendo Switch Review

The HyperX Chargeplay Clutch charging case for Nintendo Switch is a multi-use mobile case, detachable battery pack, Switch stand, and controller holder. It’s exceedingly strong in the creativity and innovativeness departments, but misses the mark a bit when it comes to comfort and practicality. Let’s start with the Clutch’s...

HyperX releases a Pulsefire mouse with 11 buttons and a mouse pad with lighting effects

HyperX Pulsefire Raid Mouse and FURY Ultra Mouse Pad Review

At the end of my last HyperX mouse review for the Pulsefire FPS Pro, I said: “The only other thing I could wish for is another couple of buttons to make the FPS Pro a little more MOBA and MMO-friendly, but that’s honestly a minor quibble.” Well, it seems like HyperX heard my plea, since the new Pulsefire Raid is seeking to fix my final quibble with the Pulsefire line of HyperX mice, a line that I’ve seen consistently iterate and grow over the past few years.

A stylish new color palette for the acclaimed Cloud MIX

HyperX Cloud MIX Rose Gold Impressions

While I’m a big fan in general of HyperX’s gaming headsets, the Cloud MIX is still one of my very favorites. It is by far the most versatile headset I’ve had the opportunity to use, supporting use with a single 3.5mm jack (for mobile devices, certain computers/laptops, and consoles), dual 3.5mm jacks (for computers that support an audio/microphone jack set-up), and Bluetooth connections.
