2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro Overview: Lightweight Gaming Mouse with Excellent Sensor
By: Alex Chub | 16.09.2021, 10:08
The 2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro mouse is a very interesting option for those looking for a very lightweight mouse with proven components inside for an adequate price. The mouse boasts a comfortable right-handed shape and honeycomb-shaped hole structure, which resulted in minimal weight and good airflow. The wonderful optical sensor Pixart PMW 3389 is installed inside, and buttons use Omron switches with lifetime of 20 million button presses. The cable is light and handy and the software is clear and easy to use. The only slight complaint I have is that the casing is a bit squeaky. Although it's hard to talk about durability in general after two weeks of use. 2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro can be bought now for 1400 UAH.
4 reasons to buy 2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro:
excellent optical sensor Pixart PMW 3389;
comfortable design, minimal weight and interesting design;
The 2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro is packed into a small black and yellow box with decent printing and basic info. Inside the box you will find the mouse itself, documentation, additional Teflon glides and a sticker with the brand logo
. What does the 2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro look like?
2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro has a mesh design that is gaining popularity right now. The mouse is dotted with honeycomb holes. This design has both pluses and minuses. It allows you to reduce mouse weight and your palm sweats less thanks to air circulation. The other side of the coin is that dust and dirt gets inside. Beside interesting design we received the mouse in original "Retro White" color that actually is beige. The whole upper part of the mouse arm is made of it. The mouse is asymmetrical for the right hand. The main buttons are wide and separated from the rest of the surface. At the same time they don't flutter or rattle.
The side panels are made of slightly darker beige plastic and also have a honeycomb surface. Due to this the fingers do not slip and there are no additional rubberized inserts. On the right side there are no additional elements. On the left side there are two big red additional buttons. Thanks to their size and clear separation, they are comfortable to use and do not miss a thing.
The scroll wheel is covered with rubberized dots. It is illuminated on the sides. Behind the scroll wheel is the DPI switch button. It is far enough away from the wheel and there are no accidental presses. At the very bottom the back of the mouse is equipped with LED backlight.
The cable entry point is in the middle of the mouse and there is a good protection against bending. The manufacturer decided to make the front and the bottom of the mouse out of black plastic. It is an odd decision. On the other hand these parts are hardly ever visible.
The whole lower part of the mouse is also full of holes. In the centre is a window of the optical sensor PixArt PMW3389. On the perimeter there are four Teflon legs. Next to the sensor there is a button for switching the sampling rate and on the other side there is a slider that can be used for switching the backlight off completely or for switching the rear LED band off.
The mouse is connected to your computer with a 1.8m long non-detachable fabric braided cable with gold-plated connector and ferrite filter. It's quite thick, but it's lightweight and quite pliable. Although a minimal memory effect is still present. But all in all it is comfortable to use and doesn't disturb you while playing.
The 2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro looks rather originally. The build quality is quite good on the whole but you can sometimes hear some minimal squeaking and crunching when you squeeze it. Although in normal use there are no issues at all.
How comfortable is it to use?
2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro is relatively small: 123x68x39 mm and very lightweight: 68g. Thanks to that the mouse is easy to use for a long time. The form is designed for right handed use. Generally, the shape is suitable for any type of grip. Depending on my palm size, either palm or finger grip will be optimal: for me with an average palm the finger grip suited me best. The openings on each side prevent slippage, and the mouse feels good in your hand so it won't slip out. The thumb rests comfortably under the gap between the thumb and mouse buttons. And there's no problem with the weighting: either the nose or the stern doesn't tilt up when the mouse is lifted off the surface.
The main buttons use OMRON switches with the claimed lifespan of 20 million keystrokes. They have a short, but very distinct and informative click. In addition to this, the buttons are well-locked, so there is no play or excessive movement. The scroll wheel uses F-Switch encoder. It is very informative: you can feel the clicks perfectly, besides, you can't call it tight. It runs absolutely silently at any scrolling speed.
What does 2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro do?
The 2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro uses the optical sensor PixArt PMW3389 with native resolution of 16 000 DPI. Although the maximum resolution can be set to 26,000 DPI in the application. It is hard to say why: 16 000 DPI is more than enough. The sensor is capable of tracking motion at a maximum speed of 400 inches per second and acceleration up to 50g. This optical sensor is used in a lot of gaming mice and is already very familiar. It is perfectly fine with positioning and is virtually impossible to tear off. So it is comfortable to play any game, including the highest FPS speeds. There were no surprises and in 2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro the sensor works perfectly.
The firmware is functional, and at the same time, quite easy to use. It is possible to change button assignment, record macros, tune DPI values (you can set from 1 to 5, the indicator is the backlight of the scrolling wheel and mouse internals), select the polling frequency (125/250/500/1000 Hz), adjust the backlight, mouse sensitivity in the range from 1 to 20, scrolling speed in the range from 1 to 10 or by pages, and also double-click speed from 900 to 200. Three different settings profiles can be saved in the application and they can be imported and exported. The only thing missing is the height adjustment of the surface peel-off.
Bottom line: Three things to know about the 2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro:
2E Gaming HyperSpeed Pro is a lightweight and comfortable right handed gaming mouse;
It uses a fast and accurate optical sensor PixArt PMW3389 with 16 000 DPI resolution;
The main buttons use durable and convenient Omron switches.
