When you are putting together a gaming PC, every part is integral. One of the most important things about your build are your peripherals. Having a good mouse tailored to what you need is a must. Now I have usually stuck to one brand as far as peripherals were concerned and HyperX has completely changed my mind on this. Having one of their best keyboards I was excited when I saw this mouse was released. My initial thoughts with this mouse was that it was a little thicker than other equipment that I’ve used in the past. I am by no means a small guy and I have larger than normal hands. This mouse fills out the inside of my hand nicely so there is less strain on my hand.
The Pulsefire FPS Pro RGB Mouse looks as good as it feels. The mouse is a slick black color all around with the RGB lights on the scroll wheel and the HyperX Logo on the top of the mouse. HyperX was gracious enough to send one of their signature mouse pads with the mouse to compliment it. The Pulsefire FPS Pro also benefits from the HyperX Ngenuity software that was used on their other RGB devices. Unfortunately I am still having trouble with this software as it seems to freeze every time I open it. I have seen the software in action and can say that when it works, it’s great. Ngenuity allows you to customize the colors, set up macros and mess with the sensitivity of the mouse itself.
I played a few different games since I have received the mouse. I tried a couple different genres to see how the mouse works with them. I can happily say that it works great whether you are playing an adventure game, an MMO, or a shooter. Now, this mouse was made with shooters in mind because of how precise it is. Now all of this accuracy is with this mousepad they sent me, I couldn’t speak to other mousepads. There isn’t a lot of negative to say about this mouse, aside from the Ngenuity software not working, which has nothing to do with the mouse itself. Check out the specs for the mouse below, as well as my recommendation for the product. At a price point of $39.99 you really can’t beat this!
