HyperX Pulsefire FPS Pro & Fury S Speed Edition Review

👤by Weston Dakin Comments 📅21-10-18

£50 is a good amount for a mouse as this price is sort of like a sweet spot; usually, mice in this range are well made, yet don’t skimp on the internals or features, and the HyperX Pulsefire FPS PRO is one such offering in that price category. Coming in a £49.98 in the UK ($59.99 US / $89.00 AUS) it is just under that previously mentioned sweet spot and just so happens to be a very well made mouse with plenty of performance prowess. Is it the full package though? Well in terms of design and build, it definitely is right at the top of the list thanks to its solid build and subdued gamer design. The comfort is also very good as HyperX have clearly put some serious thought into making it comfortable which it is - well given you have above average sized hands. As the FPS Pro is a touch on the long side, you do need hands that are average and above in order for this to be comfortable. It also works well for both palm and claw grip styles which is great. The side grips also help improve comfort, and of course grip, this is thanks to the rubberised nature of them and also the pattern of the grip. Other strong suits include the vibrant RGB lighting and of course the performance. Speaking of, the gaming performance on offer from the FPS Pro is superb; the experience is fluid, accurate, fast and well controlled.

So the FPS Pro has a lot going for it, but there is one slight caveat, and that is the software, it just doesn’t feel as polished as some other software offerings out there. It does work well, but some of the functionality could be improved to make the user experience that much better.

The Fury S is another great offering from HyperX as it blends performance with design, though that design may not be to everyone’s taste, it is very nice. In terms of the performance, it's a very good surface to game on thanks to its low friction and smooth nature; this makes most mice glide with minimal effort. If speed isn’t your thing and you want more control, then they do offer a precision mat, this does forego the design, but it does offer that extra precision if that is what you want. One thing that we don’t like is that the designs are directly linked to the surface style. By that, we mean that the speed surface has its own design as does the precision, but what if you want the precision surface and aren’t a fan of the design. Then with the current offerings, you’re a bit stuck. We think HyperX should offer both surface types with both designs, that way you a free to choose your preferred surface and design. On a more positive note, the underside grip is brilliant and does keep the mat planted when in use. Also, the Fury S is available in four different sizes to suit tastes and of course the size of your desk. So if the extra large is too big, then they have three smaller variants to choose from.

Are they worth their respective prices? Well, it's a yes on both fronts. The FPS Pro is a superb gaming mouse that pretty much ticks all the boxes. The Fury S is priced at £29.99 GBP ($29.99 US / $35.00 AUS) and is brilliant for injecting some colour to your setup as well as offering very good performance for gaming and everyday use.

The HyperX Pulsefire FPS Pro is right up there with the best you can get at the respective price point thanks to its superb performance and strong core attributes.

The HyperX Fury S is a super smooth and speedy surface that would be a great fit for gamers that want a splash of colour and speed.
