HyperX releases an upgrade to the popular Pulsefire FPS mouse the new Pulsefire FPS Pro!
Kingston HyperX has made some great peripherals and the new Pulsefire FPS pro is another great example. I have previously reviewed the Pulsefire FPS as well as the Pulsefire Surge and the new Pulsefire FPS Pro feels like a combination of the best features of both mice. After unboxing the first impression is the that the mouse is both large and stout. not to mention comfortable. The sides are well rubberized and the bottom is fitted with rubber skates to help it glide smoothly over surfaces. The RGB colors apply to the HyperX Logo and click wheel button. There is no color band surrounding the mouse like in the Pulsefire Surge. I am happy with this as some slight FX is my preference. The Omron switches feel and sound very strong and have a solid click to them. I tend to crank up the DPI when playing MMOs and survival games. I tested the mouse with Conan Exiles, Neverwinter Ravenloft, Star Trek Online and Minecraft and felt that it worked extremely well with my demands. Yes, it is limited to 6 buttons so hardcore MMO players may want a bit more but I felt that it was really efficient and easy to program. When I combined it with a Fury S mouse pad the two worked in fabulous harmony, gliding as if it were on a sheet of glass.
