XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming Mouse Review PC

XPG continues to deliver gaming peripherals for every level of gamer at a fast pace. Sporting an ergonomic design that reflects XPG’s industrial design language called “Exoskeleton”. Built for form and function the ALPHA is made for gaming enthusiasts and Esports pros alike. The XPG ALPHA features a high-performance Pixart PAW 335 sensor, Bluetooth connectivity, 2.4G wireless, 60 hours of battery life, premium Omron switches, and 6 programmable buttons priced at $89.95.

It’s been a while since the feel of a mouse has really stood out to me. XPG’s Exoskeleton design features a small lip to rest your thumb on the left side of the mouse. So, your thumb never touches the mouse pad it feels really comfortable. I have never put it into perspective until now but with most mice, we are actually holding our thumb up off the pad, in this case, we can lay it down on the lip lazy style. It’s one of those things you will never know until you actually test it. Between the mesh grip on both sides and its great shape, the mouse feels stellar in your hand. I am impressed.

The XPG ALPHA has 6 programmable buttons that can be saved to user profiles and used on different devices. This mouse will play best with FPS, MOBA, and Action RPG titles. It’s a bit short on buttons for an MMORPG. On the bottom, you will find a switch to connect wirelessly via Bluetooth or 2.4G devices. A hatch with a transmitter fits seemly on the bottom for easy transportation. I love the triangle shape of the middle mouse button it gives you some extra area to press it for those with big fingers. Light RGB lighting consists of a logo on the heel and highlights inside the mouse wheel.

We have been impressed with XPG product performance in the past and we expect no difference here. Omoron switches are seen in most high-end brand mice like Razer and Logitech. These are premium switches that perform at a high level and tested up to 60 million clicks. Its Pixart PAW 3335 sensor is basically a lower power-consuming version of the 3389. It’s a solid performer with a DPI range from 100 to 16,000 which is great for FPS or MOBA. This mouse glides super smooth and is upper tier in the performance department for a wireless setup.

I am a big fan of this frame design I think the lower lip that holds your thumb is amazing. I have mentioned before in past reviews that the XPG software that controls the mouse is one of the better systems. It’s very easy to use but offers a higher level of RGB customization and mouse adjustment. My only complaint here is that the mouse is on the heavier side even for a wireless mouse at 3.5 ounces. This product is priced perfectly for a performance wireless mouse. A must-look if your eye is out for one.
