HyperX Pulsefire Haste 2 Review

Just two years ago I took a look at the HyperX Pulsefire Haste gaming mouse, and it has been my mouse of choice for gaming ever since. I had found no real flaws with the original Haste, giving it a 10/10 score and the ThinkComputers Recommended Award, and have had zero complaints to this point. The mouse has held up great and still performs like day one. Naturally, when I saw the Haste 2 at CES 2023, I was excited at the prospect of reviewing it when it became available. Well, that day is here, as I have the HyperX Pulsefire Haste 2 Wireless in my possession, and have put it through the paces. Will the new version of the Haste be enough to dethrone the original? Read on to find out!

Special thanks to HyperX for providing the Pulsefire Haste 2 Wireless review sample!

The Haste 2’s retail packaging is very similar to that of the Haste, in that the front of the box features the same overall layout, but in a white and gray color scheme.
