HyperX PulsFire Haste 2 Wireless Review
HyperX Pulse fire Haste 2 Wireless review:
Stunning budget-friendly performance
If you’re looking for a wireless gaming mouse that won’t break the bank, you might want to check out the HyperX Pulsefire Haste 2 Wireless. This mouse is the successor to the original Pulsefire Haste, which was already a great wired mouse for its price. The Haste 2 Wireless adds wireless connectivity, RGB lighting, and a slightly improved design while keeping the same lightweight and comfortable shape.
The Haste 2 Wireless:
The Haste 2 Wireless wireless mouse is one of the lightest on the market, weighing only 80 grams with the battery. It has a honeycomb shell to save weight and promote ventilation, but it also includes grip tape and dust covers if you want a more substantial feel. There are six buttons on the mouse, including two side buttons and a DPI switch. The buttons are clear and sensitive, and the HyperX NGENUITY software allows you to personalize them.
Use OF PixArt:
The mouse uses a PixArt PAW3335 sensor that can go up to 16,000 DPI and has a 1000 Hz polling rate. The sensor is accurate and reliable, and I didn’t experience any issues with tracking or skipping. The mouse also has a low latency of 1 ms in wireless mode, which is impressive for a budget-friendly mouse. You can use the mouse in wired mode as well, with the included USB-C cable.
The battery life of the Haste 2 Wireless is adequate but not exceptional. It can last up to 36 hours with the RGB lights turned off and up to 20 hours with the RGB lighting turned on. The RGB lighting is faint, appearing solely on the scroll wheel and the logo. You may use the software to modify the brightness and effects, or you can turn it off altogether to preserve battery life. On the underside of the mouse is a battery indicator that displays how much energy is remaining.
The Haste 2 Wireless is backward compatible with Windows, Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. It has a USB dongle that may be stored within the mouse when not in use. The dongle offers a robust and interference-free 2.4 GHz wireless connection. The mouse also has Bluetooth capability, which is useful for connecting to other devices such as laptops or tablets. Bluetooth mode, on the other hand, has a greater latency of 8 ms and a lower DPI of 800.
The HyperX Pulsefire:
The HyperX Pulsefire Haste 2 Wireless is a fantastic wireless gaming mouse that offers stunning performance for its price. It has a lightweight and comfortable design, a reliable sensor, low latency wireless connectivity, and customizable buttons and RGB lighting. It’s not perfect though, as it has a mediocre battery life and limited Bluetooth functionality. But if you’re looking for a wireless mouse that won’t cost you an arm and a leg, you should consider the Haste 2 Wireless.
