HyperX Pulsefire FPS Review (Page 4 of 4)

Page 4 - Conclusion

With the Pulsefire FPS, the HyperX team has shown a lot has been learned along the way during their dive into the gaming peripheral market. From the start, the Pulsefire FPS falls in line with most lightweight mice, featuring an all-plastic body and rubber side grips for better control. The overall body looks very similar to a Razer mouse, but it feels good in the hands. Its design, despite its plastic build, is durable enough to stand up to most gaming sessions. Moving to performance, the HyperX Pulsefire FPS also performs admirably, with a lightweight body and proven sensor underneath. Gaming can be done with accuracy and control without any negatives like spinning out or acceleration, as long as you do not use too high of a sensitivity. This also translates into good performance during graphical work. Both primary and secondary buttons are within reach and all of them provide good feedback without being too stiff. It almost seems like HyperX does not have a lot to learn for their next mice, but there are a couple suggestions I would make. I would like to see improvement at the higher sensitivity, though this will probably require a better sensor overall. However, my main suggestion would be to see some user software. I think it would be great to see a unifying HyperX utility to help control not only this mouse, but also other products such as keyboards and headsets, too. Specifically for the Pulsefire FPS, it would have been nice to allow some custom settings for DPI steps, LED illumination, and lift off distance. At a retail price of around $50 USD, this mouse is priced to compete, but it is not necessarily the best value conscious choice. Other mice, such as the Corsair Gaming Harpoon RGB offer more customization and similar performance at a cheaper price. This being said, the HyperX Pulsefire FPS is a comfortable, no-fuss mouse, and anyone can immediately pick this up and start using it.
