HyperX Pulsefire FPS Gaming Mouse Review

Closer Look and Performance

The Pulsefire FPS mouse was designed for right-handers. It’s also really light what should improve comfort and precision during longer gaming sessions.

Except standard left and right mouse buttons and wheel there are two additional buttons on the left side. Simply forward and back buttons. Sadly there is no additional software to configure these buttons as anything else. However for FPS games it should be enough.

Kingston used Omron switches for the main buttons which give fast response time and high durability counted for 20 million clicks.

It’s braided for durability but is quite flexible. Its length is 1.8 meter so typical for this type of product.

On the back of the mouse there is HyperX logo with red lighting. We can’t change that. The only LEDs which are changing colors are these under DPI switch. There are four modes and each of them has different colors. We can pick 400, 800, 1600 or 3200 DPI. Personally I’m not using much more than 3000 DPI in any game so regardless what I play, 3200 seems like a reasonable maximum. I guess that some gamers wish to see a bit higher limit.

On the back of the mouse there are two large teflon skates. We can also see the Pixart PMW 3310 optical sensor. I’m not a fan of cloth mouse pads but the Pulsefire and the FURY S are really nice combo and it works great for me.

I assume that this mouse will be used for everything, not only games. While testing the Pulsefire FPS all was working smooth. This mouse is really comfortable for any applications. There were no issues with delays or tracking. Everything was just perfect. In games was the same story. All just as you wish it to be so you are forgetting about the mouse and can focus on the game.
