I recently published the review of HyperX Puslefire Core RGB, which is one of the mid-range gaming mouse offered by HyperX, but if you’re looking for something entry-level that is good enough for Counter-Strike GO or Apex Legends kind shooters, HyperX Pulsefire Core is your best option. Following is my review of HyperX Pulsefire Core that is currently available at the price of Rs. 3150 on Amazon.
HyperX Pulsefire Core Gaming Mouse Review
Similar to its RGB version Pulsefire Core is a medium-sized gaming mouse powered by Pixart 3327 sensor 6 (200DPI) for smooth and precision tracking and comes with 7 programmable buttons. The switches are all gaming-grade that is claimed to be rated for up to 20 million clicks. This gaming mouse weighs 87gms, and design-wise almost similar to its pricier sibling. The only noticeable difference in appearance is the signature HyperX lightning RGB curve lines which are not absent in this budget gaming mouse. The braided cable is present in this version as well, which mak
The Core gaming mouse is powered by their Hyperx Ngenuity software, which lets you tweak the RGB effects on the mouse. This tool also allows you to program the available 7 buttons to change the DPI Sensitivity levels, colors, and record and set macros for particular buttons.
Negenuity is pretty easy to use, and you simply have to click on button image, to program it to do certain functions.
RGB option allows you to set the HyperX Logo on the mouse to set as a single color, dual color or in spectrum mode that slowly changes to different colors, and in my opinion the best of them all. You can definitely customize it according to your gaming desktop setup. The customization tool is not as advanced compared to others, but it gets the job done.
The optical sensor in the Pulsefire core mouse is extremely reliable good for doing 360 turns without spinning out of the range, much better than Pixtart 3310. The cable is very light, and won’t restrict you from using the mouse the best way possible. The DPI can be changed from 200 to 6400 with the steps of 100.
On the bottom of the mouse, you get two flat feet, that offers smooth gliding over mouse pads or flat surfaces. On the top, you have smooth plastic that feels comfortable to hold, and on the side, you get contour textures that provide additional grips.
On the top of the mouse, you have DPI configuration set as default, whereas the additional buttons on the left side are configured to go forward and back.
The mouse front is flared at the front, similar to what we’ve seen in the Pulsefire Core RGB gaming mouse. It will fit perfectly for medium to large-sized palms and offer better controls compared to other options in this price range.
The feedback on the clicks is quite good, except for the sides, which sounded shallow. The right button sounds softer than the left one, but overall good work on major buttons of this mouse.
The gaming performance of the HyperX Pulsefire Core is solid, compared to anything you can buy in a similar budget. A well built gaming mouse suitable for most hands, except for the ones who don’t prefer flared design at the front. The mouse is something very personal to individual preferences, but for most entry to mid-level gamers out there, this mid-size gaming mouse is the perfect companion for FPS gaming!
