amazon Alienware AW610M reviews
When it comes to the Alienware brand, many gamers will immediately think of PC and gaming laptop product lines that are unique, weird, and have an “alien” but also full of power and uniqueness from America’s leading gaming computer manufacturer.
However, in the Asia market, quite a few users know that Alienware has also launched its accessories for gamers in the domestic market since 2018, with separate lines of gaming mice and keyboards, However, these products are still somewhat tight-lipped and are usually only circulated among high-end gamers.
Recently, also to respond to the trend of “cutting the wire” for gaming mice that is happening strongly, Alienware also launched the all-new Alienware AW610M wireless gaming mouse line, a more acceptable price to mid-range gamers.
For many years, Alienware has consistently maintained its “alien” design style and the Alienware AW610M is no exception.
Unlike the Alienware AW958 gaming mouse version that Biareview has introduced to readers before, which only has one black/silver tone, the new generation wireless mouse model was launched with two colors. Various include black version and white version.
The box is designed with the dominant white tone, highlighting the image of the mouse in the center position.
The back of the box is the specifications of the mouse, the most notable of which is the battery life of the mouse which can be up to 350 hours of use. A relatively impressive number in today’s wireless mouse world.
The packaging method of the mouse is also quite strange with the horizontal retraction of the sealing glue in an extremely luxurious but equally simple style on some high-end gaming accessory products on the market today.
The appearance design of the Alienware AW610M is completely different from the elongated, ergonomic design like mouse models from Asian manufacturers like Razer or ASUS, which are somewhat similar to “compatriots” Corsair when Has a symmetrical form and quite a large size with rafting armrests to the sides to minimize friction between the hand and the mouse pad.
This design is often found in high-end gaming mice from Western mouse manufacturers such as Corsair Dark Core RGB Pro with a quieter, more smooth.
The design of this mouse model is only suitable for true “big hands” who use the palm grip method, because that way, the palm part can hug. The entire mouse size and the inner cheek of the thumb can “rest” exactly on the mouse fin.
But for that reason, for users with smaller hands, holding the mouse will be a bit more difficult.
In addition, although designed in a symmetrical form, Alienware only arranges two function buttons (page scroll) on the left side of the mouse, which is only convenient for right-handed mouse users.
These mouse buttons are also made in an “alien” style with a polygonal shape and a slightly raised center, which is placed in the right thumb position.
Although Alienware announced that users can reprogram the function of up to seven keys on the Alienware AW610M through the control software these are the only two function buttons that the user can influence because no one wants to sacrifice basic buttons like a left mouse, right mouse button, or scroll button.
As a wireless gaming mouse model for the mid-range segment, this mouse model is equipped with PixArt’s reading eye with a mouse speed of only 16,000DPI.
This power is completely suitable for the majority of gamers, including those who play games on large screens with 4K resolution.
The ability to operate the mouse is extremely smooth even though the signal scanning speed is only at the basic 1000Hz, with no stuttering even when operating at a low battery level.
The mouse connects to a PC or laptop via a 2.4GHz signal dongle that can be “hidden” on the underside of the mouse for easy movement.
This dongle is held by a latch and can be easily turned on by a spring push when the user presses it lightly.
This design is extremely convenient, easy to use, and more intuitive than “containing the mouse” in a separate compartment with a mechanical cover like the Corsair Saber PRO Wireless, helping users, even novices to the mouse can recognize and “fight the game” right away without any other settings.
The connectivity of the Alienware AW610M is extremely stable, without signal interference even when there are other strong 2.4GHz broadcast sources such as wifi waves, and wireless headphones working around.
That makes the mouse experience extremely smooth and comfortable, not much different from the experience when plugged in, so despite being “advertised” by Alienware, it can work in both wireless and wired modes, but it is certain that users will “forget” about the mouse wire unless the battery level is low.
The battery life of the mouse is extremely impressive.
According to Alienware’s specifications, this mouse model can operate up to 350 hours in power-saving mode.
According to the test of the writer, even in normal operating mode with decorative lights at maximum brightness, Alienware AW610M can still “stand” for a week of continuous work without recharging the battery.
Although not as “strong” as office mouse models with a battery life of up to many months, it is enough for you to completely rest assured that you can carry the mouse with you for long trips without worrying about charging for the mouse.
Although it comes from one of the top gaming brands today, the Alienware AW610M also has a few issues that users need to consider.
First of all, the rather large size of this gaming mouse makes it difficult for gamers with small hands or young gamers to find it difficult to use.
On the other hand, it’s a bit confusing when Alienware equips this mouse model with a Micro USB cable instead of USB Type C like many wireless mouse models launched in recent times.
Not to mention the wire connected to this mouse has a very special texture, and cannot be replaced by normal charging cable models.
Therefore, you must keep this connection very carefully to be able to use it for a long time with the mouse.
Besides, the Alienware AW610M does not have convenient Bluetooth connectivity, so the only way you can use a wireless mouse is to use the included dongle, which is very inconvenient for those who work on a tablet or Macbook when an adapter is needed to expand the connection port.
Finally, the Alienware Command Center driver has a pretty bad design, causing users to spend time learning and tinkering to be able to use the mouse as desired.
