Feature: A 60% keyboard that's great for games but not much else

Hands on with the HyperX x Ducky One 2 Mini keyboard

How small is too small for a gaming keyboard? Personally, I think my lower limit stops at tenkeyless jobs like the Logitech G915 TKL or my current best gaming keyboard champion, the Fnatic miniStreak. Losing a keyboard's number pad has never been an issue for me, but I can't say the same thing about losing my beloved arrow keys, which is the main thing that…

HyperX and Ducky team up for a new ultra compact keyboard

I was a big fan of the Ducky One 2 keyboard when I had it in for testing last year, but its Cherry MX switches did mean it felt quite a lot like every other mechanical keyboard out there. The good news is that Ducky have teamed up with HyperX to make a new limited edition version of their 60% One 2 Mini keyboard, which…

Feature: A more flexible alternative to the Steelseries Rival 110

HyperX Pulsefire Core review: A great budget gaming mouse

Ever since the beginning of 2018, the Steelseries Rival 110 has been my best gaming mouse recommendation for those on a budget. Available for just £25 / $23 these days, it's a tough act to beat for anyone looking to keep costs down to an absolute minimum. But now there's a new budget mouse in town looking to take that crown from the Rival 110:…

Feature: Core strength

HyperX Alloy Core RGB review: A great entry-level membrane gaming keyboard

When it comes to finding the world's best gaming keyboard, the age-old wisdom of the internet hivemind will often say, 'Mechanical or bust, mate.' Heeding such advice, however, would be to ignore the many great (and not to mention considerably cheaper) membrane gaming keyboards out there at the moment, such as our current best membrane champ, the Razer Cynosa Chroma, and today's test subject, the…

Feature: I have mixed feelings about this one

HyperX Cloud Mix review: An all-in-one Bluetooth and wired headset

If you've ever wished you could wear your gaming headset out and about without looking like a walking, talking RGB Christmas tree, then you might want to turn your attention to the HyperX Cloud Mix. Indoors, it connects to your PC via its two-pronged 3.5mm adapter; outdoors, its Bluetooth 4.2 support means you can also listen to stuff and take calls on your phone or…

Feature: How to build a 1080p gaming PC on the cheap

Build a PC that runs Plunkbat and Battlefield V for £599 from these Black Friday deals

On this hallowed day o'deals that is Black Friday, I thought I'd take a small break from my epic deals hunting (all of which can be found in our jumbo Black Friday hub, by the way) to do something a bit more practical: tell you how to build a PC from the best Black Friday PC gaming deals that will run Plunkbat and Battlefield V…

Feature: Head in the clouds

HyperX Cloud Alpha review: Good looks and great sound (most of the time)

HyperX clearly have a thing about clouds - no, not that mopey JRPG chap, the real, white fluffy things you find in the sky. I had a good time with their wireless Cloud Flight headset earlier in the year, for instance, but since then the number of Clouds in their audio line-up seems to have grown exponentially. Today, I've got the Cloud Alpha, which is…

HyperX Alloy FPS RGB review: Move over Cherry, it’s Kailh time

Cast your eye over our best gaming keyboard list and you'll find most, if not all, of my top mechanical picks are based around Cherry's excellent MX switches. That's probably not surprising given that Cherry are one of the biggest and most reliable names in keyboard circles, but HyperX's new Alloy FPS RGB makes a strong case for trying something a little bit different to…

Feature: Power surge?

HyperX Pulsefire Surge review: A petite gaming mouse undermined by fussy software

The HyperX Pulsefire Surge has had a bit of a rocky ride to shop shelves. You might have caught a brief glimpse of it earlier in the year before it was pulled due to a fault in the design of the two main click buttons coming too close together, but now it's back, retooled and ready for action in all its rainbow LED glory. Let's…

HyperX Alloy Elite review: Mechanical keyboard bliss

My newfound love of mechanical keyboards has been a little shaken of late. While I'm still not completely down with paying over £100 for a keyboard, the Asus ROG Claymore made a pretty convincing argument for burning a hole in my bank card. Then the Corsair K70 Lux RGB I reviewed went and ruined things slightly with its weird spongy Silent Cherry MX switches and…

Feature: Finger on the pulse

HyperX Pulsefire FPS review: What it lacks in customisation, it makes up for in comfort

If you've ever been within spitting distance of a Plunkbat chicken dinner, you know the importance of having a light, nimble mouse under your fingers. You won't be tucking into anything even remotely bird-shaped if you've only got something big and bulky like the Roccat Kone Aimo or Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB at your disposal. Instead, you need a mouse you can move with ease…

HyperX Cloud Flight review: Near wireless gaming headset perfection

It's been barely a week since the annual CES tech bonanza shut up shop for another year, but HyperX has wasted no time getting in its very first wireless gaming headset out into the wild. Dubbed the Cloud Flight, this 2.4GHz headset boasts the longest battery life of any of its wireless competitors - up to a whopping 30 hours to be precise.That's enough time…
