ADATA XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming Mouse Review

Software & Lighting

ADATA has an all-in-one software application for their XPG products called XPG Prime, which can be downloaded here.

Opening the software up you’ll see all of your connected XPG devices. Here we can see our XPG Alpha Wireless mouse listed.

Clicking on the icon for the XPG Alpha you’ll be brought into the configuration screen. The first tab here is Lighting. Here you can select different lighting effects, the direction of the effect, speed, and brightness. There is only one lighting zone for the entire mouse.

The next tab is Key, which is for reprogramming the mouse. Here you can select any of the six buttons and reprogram them. You have full mouse functions, keyboard functions, media controls, windows shortcuts, the ability to launch programs, text, macro, and you can fully disable the button. There is a full macro editor built into the software as well.

Up next is the Performance Tab. Here we can set how many DPI levels there are, the DPI for each of those levels, if angle snapping is on or off, debounce time, lift off distance, and the polling rate.

The final tab is Power Status. Here you can set the power idle interval (time in seconds) and what percent to give you a low battery alarm. I was a bit surprised that there was no current battery level listing anywhere in the software.

When it comes to RGB lighting you have lighting on the XPG logo on the palm rest, around the two main buttons, and on the scroll wheel. This lighting looks good, but like all RGB lighting on mice it is not necessary.
