Kingston HyperX Pulsefire FPS
Kingston also sells input devices for gamers. The HyperX Pulsefire FPS is a gaming mouse that especially stands out because of its weight: it is rather light, which makes it suited for low-sense gamers that often lift their mouse. In comparison with the rest of the test field the maximum dpi of the used PixArt 3310-sensor is fairly low, but nevertheless it shows excellent performance in the speed tests. We do occasionally measure negative acceleration, especially on the Goliathus mouse pad.
With their first gaming mouse Kingston does not continue down a slippery slope. The extra buttons for changing between four dpi-settings (400, 800, 1600 and 3200) and next/previous are no more than standard. The red led lighting is also not exactly unique. Worth mentioning is that Kingston does not supply any software - for some that might be an advantage but others might miss a lot of functionality. You cannot change your dpi-settings and macros this way.
The basis is solid for Kingston with this HyperX Pulsefire FPS, while the average price of 54 pounds / 60 euros is not that bad. There are definitely improvements to be made for a second version, but we have seen worse entries to this market.
