The Pulsefire Haste gaming mouse from HyperX has a cool honeycomb design without needing all the flash. It’s lightweight and the mouse sensor on it as you use it is incredible!
After using different mouse’s (or is it mice?) the Pulsefire is a wee bit smaller than most with some cool RGB scroll wheel with a matte black finish. It comes with six buttons from the usual left and right click buttons, the scroll with and the thin back, and forward buttons on the left side of the mouse. Then there are the DPI pre-sets that allows you to change the speed and responsiveness of the mouse. HyperX also has included in some extra mouse feet with Pulsefire Haste. It’s a nice touch as you get some grip tape for your main mouse buttons, for those of you that want that extra grip to your mouse. I didn’t really feel the need for the grips, but it is nice for HyperX to add them in for those that may need them.
I found the Pulsefire Haste slimmer than other mice I have used and the bottom of it and part of the click buttons is covered in holes that allows your hand to breathe. It also seems to add to the overall lighter than other mice, almost like a mini mouse. As with its lightness, it can glide effortlessly across your mousepad without much effort as you use it and in turn makes it more responsive for hardcore gamers looking for that precision. This is more evident when playing games like Battlefield 4 and PUBG, which relies on your quick responsiveness. The mouse is also comfortable in your hands as you use it and makes the everyday functionality less of a chore than most mice out there.
The Pulsefire Haste uses the NGenuity software which allows you to customise your mouse. This app allows you to change the RGB in the scroll wheel, tweak your DPI pre-sets, and if you feel like it, remap some of the mouse buttons like switching the left and right-click buttons, and tweak the RGB wheel’s brightness and pulse rate.
While the design and functionality of the mouse is great, the only issue I do have with the honeycomb holes is that it can be a nuisance in relation to dust or food. If you are like me and love to snack during gaming, then you might have a bit of an issue, now I say might. You may drop a few crumbs from your snacks inside the shell of the mouse if you are a wee bit sloppy or careless as there is no protective material or dust filter inside. The main circuits and components of the Pulsefire Haste are well protected, so there is no worry of breakage or hinderance, but it will probably be more of small nuisance than anything else.
The HyperX Pulsefire Haste is a quality mouse to use when you game on PC and for your everyday usage. It comes in at a bargain of £49.99 for what it offers you when compared to its more expensive counter parts, which this works so much better. If you want a mouse that is super quick, lightweight, and responsive to match, then the Pulsefire Haste is the one for you!
