Kingston’s sub-brand HyperX launched the HyperX Pulse Fire Surge a few months ago. The gaming mouse is focused on both FPS and casual gamers. It gives a great vibe to the gaming setup as well as brings a ton of features on board. Here’s how the mouse performed out in the real world.
HyperX Pulsefire Surge Review: Design
HyperX Pulsefire Surge is known to resemble quite a lot to the Razer DeathAdder mouse in terms of the design. This makes the mouse quite comfortable to hold even during long gaming sessions. The mouse comes with a total of six buttons, out of which three are the default, one is for switching DPI and there are two customizable buttons on the left, which are really handy. The RGB lighting and the glowing logo gives a gamer vibe to the mouse.
One thing that I particularly disliked about this mouse is the fact the buttons do not make a clicky noise when they are clicked. It makes the mouse feel less tactile when compared to something like a Logitech G102.
HyperX Pulsefire Surge Review: Features
The Pulsefire Surge uses a Pixart 3389 sensor, which is the same sensor used in the Razer DeathAdder Elite. The sensor offers a DPI of up to 16,000. HyperX Pulsefire Surge needs a software called NGenuity, which can be used to customize the DPI and the RGB lighting of the mouse. The 360-degree RGB lighting on the mouse can really help to enlighten your gaming setup.
The software needs quite some time to get used to as it is not as easy as it seems. Saving a profile can be a problem if you are coming from Logitech or any other mouse brand. The software needs you to make an extra step if you want to save the profile. However, the plus point here is that the mouse comes with onboard memory, so one need to install the software to customise everything when connecting the mouse to a new PC.
HyperX Pulsefire Surge Review: Verdict
At a price of around Rs. 4,800, the HyperX Pulsefire Surge does pack in a punch. The mouse comes with 360-degree RGB lighting and a DPI of up to 16,000. If you are looking for a great and reliable gaming mouse for all sorts of games, this might just end your search right here. However, if you are looking for a more simplistic mouse with more tactile feedback, you might as well look elsewhere.
