  • Comfortable and ergonomic design
  • Works well as an office mouse
  • Two additional side buttons
  • USB receiver can be stored in bottom of mouse
  • Nothing in particular

Summary

The Alienware AW610M gaming mouse is a mixed bag at best. Its unique wingtip design gives you a slight palm rest which is comfortable, but unfortunately, it means this mouse may be difficult to use with a fingertip grip. The mouse wheel wobbles a bit from side-to-side and you can hear it when you shake the mouse.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

The AW610M is a seven-button, right-handed mouse. It has two clicks, a scroll wheel, and a two-input DPI control switch. Only three of the mouse's seven inputs are customizable via the Command Center software. The sensor is sharp, tracking up to 16,000dpi and accurate at up to 400 inches per second.

The Alienware AW610M is a decent gaming mouse that feels quite comfortable. It has a symmetrical design and has silicone wingtips on either side to rest your hand on. The mouse wheel wobbles a bit from side-to-side, and you can hear it when you shake the mouse, though we don't know if this will be an issue. It's a very big and heavy mouse that's better suited for larger hands. Although it's a gaming mouse, its dedicated software doesn't allow for much customization, which is disappointing.

Pros[**]
  • Comfortable wingtip design
  • Comfortable for all hand sizes
  • Works with both Windows and macOS
Cons[**]
  • Not suitable for fingertip grip

The Logitech G Pro Wireless feels better-built, can be used by more hand sizes with more grip types, has significantly lower latency.
