We get the whole idea of what HyperX is trying to do with the Pulsefire FPS, and we feel that they delivered in almost every aspect. They have limited themselves to doing one thing, but doing that one thing very well. HyperX wanted a comfortable mouse that is highly precise wanted to ensure no matter how long you had to use it you would never lose your grip and to make a mouse that was light and easy to slide around on whatever the surface may be. We feel they hit the nail on the head with all of these aspects and are now able to support teams with the full accouterment of gear to practice with and hopefully win at the tournaments. This is the same for the average Joe too. Since this is available off the shelf, it can improve gaming for not just eSports legends, but the average player like us, who will likely never see the big stage or prize money.
Two things are minimal to some, but we feel they need to be discussed. We get the fact that many users do not need software, but we do know of competing mice at this price range which does offer more features due to the inclusion if a UI. This has us looking at the Pulsefire FPS with harsher glasses on, as we then look at everything to see what else they may have missed. With professional gamers, and the fact they use top-tier PCs to play on, latency is less of an issue, but we do feel noise might be with so many similar devices talking so much at the same time. We do think the Pulsefire could benefit from an inline choke, and we know it could have used a hook and loop strap for the cable. As we said, these are no deal killer points we are making, but looking at the bigger picture of options for this amount of money, the Pulsefire FPS does have some stiff competition. That being said, for what the Pulsefire FPS is, and what features and comfort levels it does offer, it does all of them very well with no problems to be had.
We still feel that HyperX lead off with the right foot and has stepped onto the scene with an admirable product. Geared to professional gamers, built in cooperation with them, and designed for comfort, grip, accuracy, to be lightweight, and near effortless to use, HyperX delivers in spades on all of these points. If you are the type of player that would rather have a product designed for one specific task, raising your standings in any FPS you play, the Pulsefire FPS is a solid choice to make. If you are the type that likes to fiddle around in software, add Macros, have RGB lighting, the bloat associated with many products outside of these aspects, then the Pulsefire FPS is not for you. For the serious gamers out there, professional or not, the Pulsefire FPS Gaming Mouse is a pleasure to use, and we recommend it for anyone who is serious about First Person Shooter titles.
