HyperX is better known for its gamer headsets and keyboards than for gaming mice, but the Pulsefire Haste might just make you sit up and take notice.

Its honeycomb shell is a familiar sight today, enabling HyperX to bring the weight down to just 59g. The sides where you grip the mouse is solid plastic, which may help improve comfort for some. I personally don’t mind having holes in my mouse shell at all, and despite having used many of these types of mice for extended periods of time, I’ve never found dust build-up to be an issue. The Pulsefire Haste is very competitive in terms of weight and is lighter even than the smaller Razer Viper Mini.

The mouse sports a symmetrical, ambidextrous shape, and it’s a very safe and versatile one that will accommodate most grip styles. It’s also extremely comfortable in hand. The mouse slops out gently and widens from the middle, and there are nice comfort grooves on the left- and right-click buttons. The hump is located towards the middle, and at 38.2mm tall, it fills out your palm quite nicely. It measures 124.2mm long, making it a medium-sized mouse that is still a bit too big to fingertip if you have small hands.

What Should You Know About Cloud Security Solutions?

First, let’s explain exactly what the cloud is, and how it relates to digital security. Intuitively, some people believe that “cloud” storage means your data is being held in the air somehow, but this isn’t really the case. Instead, most cloud applications store data on physical servers, in datacentres around the globe. Your data is stored remotely, and provided to you upon request.
