It's a little more expensive than the other options, but it's rare to find a game mouse that embodies the pillars of the Alienware brand as well as these.
The Alienware 610M is a wireless gaming mouse with built-in thumb rest, RGB illumination, a 16,000 DPI sensor, 2.4Ghz wireless connectivity, 40g acceleration, and 350 hours of battery life. The latter is pretty cool and, if we only talk about mice with this kind of high-performance sensor, close to the category that is most leading (depending on whether you count the wireless mice with Bluetooth support). I thought the button layout of the Alienware 610M was brilliant.
The re’s a nub-like trigger situated next to the scroll wheel that enables you to easily and quickly bump the DPI up or down plus a few programmable macro keys on the left. In terms of responsiveness, I’m particularly satisfied with what the Alienware 610M has delivered. It didn’t excite me as much as something like the Razer Viper Ultimate, but playing MOBA’s like League of Legends and Overwatch 3 with this thing was still a treat.
Razer just debuted with their first 20K DPI mouse, and I can’t help but wish for a version that meets the same standards. Thumb rests are always tricky, but I’m especially happy with the symmetrical rests on the back of the Alienware 610M. They are made of a softly structured plastic with an ever decreasing amount at hand. Together, they more than adequately support my wrist during longer play sessions.
There are four lighting zones on the Alienware 610M that can be adjusted using the Alienware Command Center. This is as easy to say as it is to do, although it does mean you’ll need to install a little peripheral software on your PC – which will annoy some users more than others. There are a few details that bother me here, such as the choice of Micro USB instead of USB Type-C and leaving the Bluetooth connectivity option off the table, but for the most part, the Alienware 610M gets the things that matter about gaming mice right.
