ADATA XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming Mouse Review

Usage & Final Thoughts

I have been using the XPG Alpha as my main mouse for the past couple of weeks, so it has been used for daily tasks as well as quite a few different gaming sessions. First, the mouse was extremely easy to setup. Just make sure it is charged and then plug in the 2.4 GHz receiver and you’ll be good to go. There were no drivers or anything like that that install, it just worked out of the box. If you want to reprogram the mouse or change the lighting you will however have to download the XPG Prime software.

The mouse is definitely comfortable, but if you are coming from a a lightweight mouse this mouse will take a little bit to get used to as it is a bit heavier at 98 grams. The shape of the mouse lends itself to your hand very well and I really like the oversized thumb rest. The textured sides really make it so you have a secure grip on the mouse too.

I used the mouse in both 2.4 GHz and Bluetooth modes without any issues, although if you are doing any competitive gaming I would for sure use the 2.4 GHz receiver. Talking about this receiver it is nice that it can be stored in a small compartment on the bottom of the mouse. This ensures that you won’t lose it when you are traveling. If you happen to run out of battery on the mouse you can charge it with the included cable and you can even use the mouse in wired mode.

There really is not much not like about this mouse. If anything I would have liked to have seen a battery level indicator in the software itself.

At the end of the day this is a solid wireless gaming mouse that comes in at a very affordable price of $64.99 at our favorite online retailer. Overall ThinkComputers gives the XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming Mouse a 9 out of 10 score.
