HYPERX PULSEFIRE FPS: A GOOD VALUE GAMING MOUSE


Recommended Posts

alt text

As we have stated in the past one of the most overlooked components to a new custom build is the lowly input device. Many people spend countless hours on choosing the case, the video card, or even just the motherboard but will spend almost no time on the devices which will arguably have one of the largest impacts on overall satisfaction: the mouse, the keyboard, and even the lowly mouse pad. These three are the holy trinity of input device types and have a major impact on usability, enjoyment, and even physical health as together they form the foundation of your work/gaming/etc. ecosystem. Without good input devices the biggest, badest system is as useful as a junker laptop circa 2005.

Not that long ago we took a look at HyperXs keyboard the HyperX Alloy FPS Pro and walked away very impressed with HyperXs mechanical keyboard. This time our focus turns to their first generation mouse the HyperX Pulsefire FPS. The reason we have chosen this particular mouse for this short article is that with so much competition and shear number of options available to consumers some very, very good value options can get lost in the shuffle. Over the past few months we have read many articles on the HyperX Pulsefire FPS gaming mouse and feel that it has not gotten its fair shake. Most articles on this go out of their way to slight it for being nothing more than a clone. A clone of an older generation Razor mouse.

For many people once they hear the words Razor and mouse in the same sentence they close the article and move on. Sure, some people love Razor and think they are the best of the best. Others have had less than optimal experiences with them as their Quality Control and overall asking price leaves a lot to be desired. Compare and contrast that with the HyperX Pulsefire FPS and there are night and day differences. Put simply this mouse does not cost a fortune, does not require any software to run, and generally speaking is shaped to be comfortable for a wide range of consumers as possible.

The downside to this no-frills, wide based appeal is that it does not cost a bloody fortune (and lot of people equate price with quality) and does not come with as many bells or whistles as some. It does not have a bajillion buttons scattered all over it. It does not come with a bajillion DPI sensor. In fact, it does not even use a laser sensor and rather is an optical sensor-based mouse. It does not even come with all that much customization in the lighting department. Instead it is a comfortable five-button mouse that just so happens to use one of the best sensors released in the past couple years. To be specific this mouse uses the Pixart 3310 sensor, which was released way back in 2016. This sensor tops out at a mere 3200 DPI as it is an optical and not a laser-based sensor it works best when used in conjunction with a mouse pad and not directly on bare desk. Better still this mouse will only set consumers back only $50 (USD) as that is all a mouse should cost when you pair away all the various goo-gaws that do nothing for the average buyer besides boosting the price in the stratosphere.

    • Hello everyone, now I am choosing between several laptops, but maybe you can advise me something better my priorities: mostly just for home, for watching movies and YouTube, for some light games (a couple of times a month), and sometimes for work (mostly google drive, various marketing resources, nothing heavy) around 600 USD 15.6" or more Acer, Asus? Order on Amazon? Windows prefarable 256 SSD or more. I will leave links of those notebooks that I am thinking about now https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-44-R41B-Hexa-Core-Processor-Graphics/dp/B087N4ZRXV?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_simh_hd_bw_b2N0e&pf_rd_r=61THRATEMWAKYQZB6J7M&pf_rd_p=121acd9e-769b-5530-ae68-5a92ebd704d6&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=565108 https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-55-56VK-i5-1035G1-Fingerprint-Keyboard/dp/B087RTV311/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&qid=1613042065&rnid=13896617011&s=computers-intl-ship&sr=1-10 THANKS!   Cali employee monitoring software
    • Hopefully, everyone can get this card before the bots do. Full unboxing of the new Nvidia 3060 Ti Gaming X Trio from MSI below:  
    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/
