Packing and scope of delivery

The external packaging of the mouse has been designed to be visually appealing and compact, while resembling other HyperX product packaging. A black-white-red color scheme was used that catches the eye. Above we find the HyperX brand logo again, as well as the name of the gaming mouse below. On the right in the middle we see the mouse from above, on the left the most important specifications. At the bottom left corner we find information that refers to the manufacturer’s two-year warranty. Further to the right, the available compatibilities for the PC and consoles are last noted.

If we take a look at the pages, we will not find any further important information there. Only the partners of the gaming mouse were noted there. The backside is also equipped with the same technical data, but here in many different languages. At the bottom of the page we see a small box, in which the package inserts were listed. The overall picture of the packaging has been neatly arranged in a visually appealing way, which arouses our curiosity about the inside of the packaging.

Features a folding system on the sides of the packaging, which can typically be opened from above. Inside we see a black cardboard box in which the mouse has been clamped with a small extra piece of plastic. The box also contains a user manual, a support card, exchangeable PTFE pads and optional adhesive grip tapes. In addition, the box contains other items for warranty purposes, but they are not easily visible and readable without damaging the packaging. On the back of the black cardboard box we find a note about the software. We can find it easy and uncomplicated for download on the HyperX homepage.

Workmanship and design

The design of the HyperX Pulsefire Haste Gaming Mouse is not spectacularly different from many other lightweight gaming mice. Again, we find the trend towards weight reduction in gaming mice, a honeycomb grid design. This is a classic honeycomb grid design that eliminates the need for material due to the perforated structure, thus reducing weight. This makes this mouse feel almost as light as a feather. In addition, this texture can be found on the back of the mouse, on the lower part of the right and left mouse button and on the bottom. The mouse remains very stable under heavy pressure thanks to the well workmanship of the matte black plastic case. In general, the mouse is very robust with the well performed workmanship.

Through the grid we can take a look at the inside of the mouse. Here we have made sure that the inner parts do not fall out of the grid optically by other colors and therefore they fit optically to the outer appearance. If we look at the mouse buttons at an acute angle, we can only see the first cables inside – very good! Under the chip, which we can see from above, is the sensor. HyperX decided to use a PixArt PAW3335 sensor. In the chapter “Ergonomics & Practice” we will take a closer look at this sensor. In addition, we also find the four PTFE pads, which have a very good workmanship. These are also large enough to guarantee a good feeling of movement.

Let’s have a closer look at the buttons of the HyperX Pulsefire Haste. The right and left mouse button of the mouse can usually be triggered well and can be heard by a clear click. Features of the mouse wheel are RGB lighting at the edge of the mouse wheel. This can be controlled by HyperX’s own software. The mouse wheel is easy to use and does not require much effort to turn. Therefore the mouse wheel is very quiet. In addition, there is a small button behind the mouse wheel, with which you can access the individual DPI modes. With a little bit of pressure the button is easy to use. Because of the central position you can even accidentally trigger the button when you put your hand down. Finally, the mouse also has the usual two side buttons. These have also been very well workmanship and are firmly seated.

For the sides as well as the right and left main key, additional adhesive grip tapes were supplied. The surface of these is optically similar to the warben pattern. Here you can see that the grip tapes live up to their name. They have been well and accurately workmanship and feel good to the fingers as well as pleasant. In addition, the grip bands stick really firmly to the mouse, so that they can not simply be removed again.

Finally we look at the cable of the HyperX Pulsefire Haste. The workmanship and quality of the cable convinced us. In our hands the cable feels like a softer thicker thread, so it is very smooth and extremely light. The only thing that adds more weight to the cable is the USB connector. This one is also solidly workmanship and has exactly the right size to save even more weight.

Software & RGB lighting

HyperX NGENUITY is the name of the software used to customize the HyperX Pulsefire Haste. The software can be downloaded from the Microsoft store. It is important to mention that the software is still in the beta version, so you can expect some changes and adaptations to the GUI and more. The software can also be used to control other HyperX products, the overview can be found on the left side. If we click on our product, we get to its settings.

The GUI of the software has been designed to be visually very appealing and not too overloaded. For the respective customization options we find three different grids in the upper left corner. In these we can control the RGB lighting, the individual buttons and the sensor. For the RGB-illumination we have only three possibilities to address the LED, realistically these are more than sufficient, because you can’t invent much new or unusual things with the mouse wheel. The sensor settings are also very clear. Here you can adjust the four profiles individually, in which you can set the DPI and also change the color of the modes. The DPI can be set here to a maximum of 16,000 and a minimum of 200. The software is generally easy to use and requires hardly any resources in the background.

Ergonomics & practice

Apart from good design and workmanship, good handling is also important for a gaming mouse. In order to get a decent impression, we tested currently hip games in the FPS shooter area as well as from the open world genre. We noticed immediately after a few minutes that the mouse is very easy to use and lies very comfortably in our hands.

With the gambling thus we did not notice directly negative. The gaming mouse can be controlled easily and very precisely. It doesn’t matter what surface the mouse is on. The mouse conveys a very pleasant feeling on the desktop as well as on a mouse pad. In combination with the grip tapes, this is also significantly increased in our opinion. As mentioned before, the grip tapes are very pleasant on the fingers. In any case, they contribute to more grip.

The mouse buttons are also all good and easy to use. The pressure points feel just right during gambling and convey a pleasant feel for the keys while playing. If you depend on additional mouse buttons on the mouse, you will of course not become a friend with this mouse. But the mouse definitely doesn’t need that, because it is very convincing with its other points.

One of them is the very light weight. Fast movements with the mouse can be done extremely well because there is hardly any weight. At 59 grams, it sometimes seems as if you don’t have a mouse in your hand. Also the cable does not hinder you and lets you enjoy the game.

Conclusion

The HyperX Pulsefire Haste is an all around very successful gaming mouse, which is worth its name and price. It is very light, stable and looks chic and elegant. The sensor is very convincing, because the mouse performs very well on different surfaces. The best performance you get of course on a mouse pad. We also like the simple RGB lighting. The mouse settings via the HyperX NGENUITY software have been designed beautifully and compactly and make it easy to customize the mouse. That is why the HyperX Pulsefire Haste has more than earned our Gold Award.
