The HyperX Pulsefire Haste Wireless Gaming Mouse is ultra-lightweight that when the first time I picked it up, I thought it was a dummy unit until I switched it on and RGB glows on the scroll wheel.

Bear with me, I’m not a PC gamer and I do use the mouse mainly for productivity, and here’s my thought about this wireless mouse.
The honeycomb body helps to cut weight without compromising durability and strength. Weigh at shy 60gram with a USB dongle stored at the bottom adds grips on its own while maneuvering the mouse. If you want a more textured finish, right out of the box, it comes with a set of grip tape stickers that you can place on the buttons and the sides of the mouse.
HyperX uses virgin-grade PTFE skates that glide very smoothly on the mousepad, even on a bare desk.
The internal structure and components of this mouse are exposed to dirt, grime, and even liquid through the honeycomb design. Thankfully, this mouse is built to be IP55-rated dust and water resistant.
TTC Golden micro switches were used on the mouse which is rated for up to 80 million clicks.
A quick glance, it’s a pretty stealth design with only one RGB zone on the scroll wheel. With the HyperX NGENUITY enable you to select RGB effects and colors, custom key mapping configuration, DPI settings as well as firmware updates for all other HyperX peripheral devices.
The RGB lighting will automatically turn off after about a minute of the mouse being idle. This not only helps extend the battery life but also reduces potential distractions.
The HyperX Pulsefire Haste wireless mouse features a PixArt PAW3335 sensor that is capable to manage up to 16,000 max DPI and can be quickly switched to different sensitivity levels by clicking the DPI button behind the scroll wheel. This allows me to hop between standard sensitivity for my editing works to a more responsive DPI setting for games. I did find the mouse perform fairly sensitive with an almost lag-free experience.
Connects to your computer with a low-profile 2.4GHz USB receiver and it doesn’t support Bluetooth connection. You can always use the provided braided USB A to USB C cable for a wired connection while charging. It also comes with a round USB hub that’s very useful if you are connecting the cable to the back of your tower desktop where you swap between the dongle and the mouse for a quick charge.
This mouse has a USB C charging port, which is a welcome change from some other mice that still insist on using microUSB. The 370mAh battery promises up to 100 hours of battery life and based on my daily use for work about 6 – 8 hours a day, I only charge it after 3 weeks of usage. I wish there would be a low battery indicator from the mouse without the need to refer to the HyperX NGENUITY software of just died halfway while using it.
I’m very impressed with the brilliant engineering, solid performance, and great battery life all in just a mere 60 grams body. The HyperX Pulse Haste wireless gaming mouse is priced ranging from RM 255 – RM 349 which is quite a good deal for an entry-level wireless gaming mouse plus productivity use. It would be a perfect addition if you are already in HyperX’s ecosystem with their keyboard and headset.
