HyperX is increasing their repertoire of computer gaming peripherals by releasing the PulseFire FPS gaming mouse. We had a chance to take a closer look at this mouse, starting with an unboxing.
The box for the Pulsefire FPS mouse is pretty standard and holds no surprises. The box has a nice image of the mouse along with some basic details of the product. The sides and rear of the box also cover similar details including multiple languages for the specs.
Slide off the outer shell of the box, and you are greeted by the inner box, which is a sleek black box, with the HyperX logo embossed in silver. While simplistic, this is surprisingly striking. The red accent of the inner section is also noticeable. This part of the box lifts up an shows you the PulseFire FPS, all on display for your mouth-watering approval.
The Pulsefire FPS is resting on a plastic shell which lifts out easily, underneath is a quick-start guide along with a warranty card. The cord of the mouse is tucked neatly under the plastic shell.
The first thing that got my attention with the Pulsefire FPS was the weight. Upon removing it from the plastic shell I noted how extremly light this mouse was. The USB cord was nicely fabric braided in the HyperX red/black motif, which is perfect.
The top of the mouse has the normal left/right buttons, along with the standard scroll wheel. Just below the scroll wheel is a button to selet the DPI sensitivity of the laser. On the left side is 2 buttons easily reached by the thumb. The underside of the mouse has 2 large skates for the mouse to translate across your surface with ease.
Plugging in the PulseFire FPS, you are greeted by more of the red/black color with the wheel and DPI selet button lighting up, along with the HyperX logo at the base of the mouse. Aside from the light weight this mouse is strikingly nice.
One thing I did note is when compared to our recently aquired Razer DeathAdder Chroma, the HyperX and DeathAdder are suprisingly similar in design. More on that in the upcoming reviews.
