HyperX Pulsefire FPS Gaming Mouse Review (Page 3)

HyperX Pulsefire FPS Gaming


The left side of the Pulsefire FPS shows off its egg-like shape, and we see a lot of flat black plastic. There are a pair of buttons on this side of the mouse, surrounded by a large rubber grip, which has a pattern applied to it to ensure grip even in the most heated of situations.


The heel of the Pulsefire FPS is well rounded and has the HyperX logo placed near the bottom. We also like the curves of the body lines which separates the sides from the larger center section and smaller plate where the backlit logo is found.


The right side of the Pulsefire FPS sits much lower than the left increasing its ergonomic form, and we see no buttons, as this is not an ambidextrous design. HyperX did take the time to add another grip to the right side, using the same pattern we saw on the other side, just this time a bit smaller, filling the area where the ring and pinky fingers rest.


From the front of the mouse, we find a design that is very Razer-esque in shape, but many successful mice share the open center and concave button styling. The cable leaves the mouse from the center, and the nose of the Pulsefire FPS has been blunted.


The scroll wheel has a black center, a red trim ring around both sides, and an easy to grip rubberized center that runs around the wheel. Further back on top of the mouse, we see the DPI selector button with an opaque section in it to be backlit to denote which of the four stages is in use.


What helps HyperX reduce the coefficient of friction it that two large feet allow this mouse to glide on the mouse pad. The eye of the sensor is set a bit forward from center but leaves room below it for the large product sticker showing electrical specifications and the model and serial numbers.


There are 1.8memters of this red and black braided cable coming from the Pulsefire. Sadly we do not see an inline choke, nor do we see a hook and loop strap to contain the wire, but we do find a connector with the HyperX name on it and a standard USB 2.0 connection.
