HyperX has once again impressed the hell out of me mere weeks after reviewing their Cloud Revolver S Gaming Headset (which was amazing, by the way). The Pulsefire FPS Gaming Mouse is a fantastic mouse at only $49.99. It’s a no-brainer if you don’t have a gaming mouse yet.
It’s not that there’s anything crazy about the mouse that nobody else has; it’s got a big, comfy right-handed shape, two buttons on the side, RGB lights–all of that. The one thing that it’s got that I really do like is the on-the-fly preset DPI settings (400/800/1600/3200). Being able to calibrate mouse sensitivity on the fly is awesome, especially when changing classes in a FPS game. Being able to switch from super high to super low sensitivity for hard-sniping or something similar that requires fine movements is really cool. On the other side of things, it’s nice to be able to switch that around and be able to set it right back to normal when you stop playing.
The mouse is incredibly smooth, and the slightly upwards-facing mouse cable keeps it from dragging. The lightweight design and durable pads on the bottom of the mouse really let it glide, as well. The mouse wheel is super smooth–not chunky at all–and it feels nice and natural whether you’re playing a game or scrolling through pages on the interwebs. Combined with any of the HyperX Fury Mouse Pads (which I also received to use with the mouse), it’s one of the most comfortable, delightful experiences I’ve had with a mouse.
I can’t recommend this mouse enough to anyone that doesn’t have a gaming mouse of their own already. For just under fifty bucks, you could pick up this and the HyperX Cloud Stinger Headset for just under $100 and have yourself a nice set of gaming peripherals.
I will say that the mouse’s lightness makes it feel a bit flimsy. Not that I’m reckless with my equipment, but I wouldn’t want to drop this thing onto a hard surface, not even from a desk. It may crack the casing or break. And, no, I don’t suggest testing that theory.
Please, don’t try to break your stuff–especially not sweet gaming mice.
