ROCCAT is back with an new gaming mouse in its Kone lineup, first introduced in 2007. The new Kone Pro though is taking design cues from the recent Burst Pro Extreme. What sets this apart from other mice out there? Let's fine out.
Optical switches are the new craze in the PC peripheral world, and due to their laser precision and lightning fast speed, the technology is marketed heavily to the gaming community. But does it stand up to the hype? I tried out a mouse and keyboard combo from Bloody to see if I could get to the bottom of that question....
I have floated back and forth between console and PC gaming over the years. While focusing on the PC field and adding to my Steam library more I have found that the hardware is as important as the games themselves. Thankfully, the HyperX Pulsefire Core does a wonderful job as an entry level piece of hardware for those entering, or reentering, the PC field.
The HyperX Pulsefire FPS Pro is the third gaming mouse the company has manufactured and, thus far, my favorite of the three. If you read my reviews on the previous two (the Pulsefire FPS and the Pulsefire Surge), you might remember how I wished I could smash the two together to create my ideal mouse. The Pulsefire FPS Pro makes those dreams a reality.
For years the Razer Deathadder was the perfect mouse for me in terms of comfort and performance. But over time the Razer software has gotten incredibly bloated, buggy, and downright unreliable. After a botched firmware update bricked my Razer Blackwidow v2 keyboard, I decided it was time to replace my peripherals. Having just switched to SteelSeries Arctis Pro, I already knew their software was top notch. Now I had to find the perfect mouse to match.
The HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB Gaming Mouse (henceforth, just “Pulsefire Surge”) provides a more specialized experience compared to the original Pulsefire mouse. In eschewing plug-and-play (a term that means the peripheral is fully functional out of the box without any required software), it offers more customizability, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
The HyperX Pulsefire FPS Mouse delivers on its promise for a smooth, responsive, and comfortable gaming experience. Although some improvements could be made to put its plug-and-play functionality more on par with customization software-driven mice, the Pulsefire is still able to stand out in the flooded market of gaming mice with its strong design for a reasonable price.
