HyperX is one of the main players in the current development of peripherals for gamers everywhere. They have perfected the keyboard with the Alloy Elite RGB and were curious to see if they can continue the trend in gaming mice. HyperX sent us out their brand new Pulsefire FPS Pro. This is an upgrade from the original version, which featured a red LED. HyperX also graced us with their new Precision Fury mouse surface to test the synergy between these two products.
Packaging Design & Specifications
Minimal color and straight to the point we find the packaging on these two gaming peripherals very professional. After opening the FPS Pro we find that the packing of the mouse differs from its predecessor. Instead of having a cardboard engagement ring like opening we see a plain black cardboard mold. This is probably the attempt of HyperX at saving a few dollars on a, not so necessary, feature. HyperX’s Precision mouse pad has a unique “You have to feel this fabric” square on the packaging. We love this addition because you can feel the product before you buy it. After the complete unboxing we find ourselves looking at a mouse with beautiful curves. Before we get into the nitty-gritty we would like to mention the instruction manual, thank you card and 2 year warranty information pamphlet. We love when these companies throw in a thank you note. A little appreciation can go a long way. Moving on to the body of the mouse. The FPS Pro comes with 6 fully programmable Omron switches and is also ambidextrous. Two switches are located on the thumb rest while four switches are seen on top. These felt really good to press and also come with a 20 million click life.Two grip pads span either side to keep control and keep your thumb from sliding down. These felt a touch too grippy, however this is something you can just get used to in time.The underside consists of two HUGE friction-less pads. These are the meat and potatoes of this gaming mouse due to the fact that you want the least amount of friction while moving this 95 gram weapon.Our FPS Pro comes equipped with a Pixart 3389 sensor that supports up to 16000 DPI. Why you would need that much sensitivity, we don’t know, but the more the better! HyperX has added a fairly standard 1.8 m braided cable to connect the USB 2.0 to its forever home in the back of your PC.
