The Computer Mouse is one of the most important pieces of equipment you will have in the Modern World. Whether it be for casual leisure use or hardcore Gaming, you will always need a Mouse. Over the years, many Computer Mice have been made and got better with each iteration. The Alpha Wireless is the latest Gaming Mouse released by XPG. It boasts of being one of the best Gaming Mice out there. Is it that good? Well, if you are looking for the answer to that question then you have come to the right place. In this article, I will review the XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming Mouse on its Pros & Cons and conclude whether it is fit for use.
XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming Mouse Review
As a Gaming Mouse, there are four categories that the Mouse should excel in. These Categories are:
- Design & Comfort
If a Gaming Mouse can satisfy the above Categories, then you can consider it a good one. I have been testing out the XPG Alpha Wireless for a week now & here is what I have to say about it.
Design & Comfort
The XPG Alpha Wireless has an amazing Ergonomic Design that fits snuggly for a palm of most sizes. It is lightweight and has a great Curve design that allows the fingers to rest well on it. If you are a Gamer, then you will like the Mouse as you can use any of the Hand Grips to hold the Mouse, be it for a MOBA game like League of Legends or an FPS game like Apex Legends.
The XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming Mouse has RGB Lights in it that display the XPG logo, the Mouse Wheel, & the underside of the Mouse Buttons. The mouse has 6 unique Buttons that are Tactile and feel fantastic to use. If you are a person who loves the clicky sound of buttons then this Mouse will be a treat for you. The XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming Mouse also comes with a Thumb rest on it to avoid unnecessary Thumb drag or to slow your movements.
XPG has designed this Mouse with their patented :Exoskeleton design. This design aims to synergize the strengths of both performance and function with aesthetics. For the most part, they have succeeded in doing just that. The Mouse is super comfortable to handle and works like a Charm when it comes to Gaming. The Wired Cable comes with grooves that lock it in place, making sure it doesn’t come loose. I haven’t done a lot of Headshots in FPS games recently but the Mouse helped me complete my Headshot Quests.
XPG Alpha Wireless Functionality Review
The XPG Alpha Wireless is a Gaming Mouse & as such thrives in the competitive environment. The Wireless Mouse has 3 modes of connecting to a PC, i.e. 2.4G, Wired, & Bluetooth 5.1. Bluetooth 5.1 is more for more leisure use of the Mouse as it is not the fastest way of communication between the Mouse & PC. On the other hand, the 2.4G & Wired options are perfect. Wired is always the best option no matter the situation but the 2.4G option has been very accurate & responsive. The XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming Mouse comes with 6 Buttons. Each of them can be mapped to whatever Function you want, well except for the DPI button.
For a Gamer, the extra two buttons become very helpful for certain important keybinds. This could be for Communication or even for a quick Weapon or Skill use. On top of that, the DPI button can be mapped to have a DPI level of 100 to 16,000 very easily. So you can flip between Slow & Accurate movement to Quick & Instant movement with a click of a button.
As I have mentioned above, clicking heads in a game like CS:GO or Valorant feels amazing & crisp. If you feel like a Headshot Demon then this mouse will make you a Monster, no cap. You will be accused of hacking, trust me I was. Jokes aside, the mouse is pretty solid & in tense situations and has helped me Clutch rounds.

This is what you will get by purchasing the XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming Mouse. The Mouse has XPG PRIME support. XPG PRIME is a dedicated Software that allows the user to adjust & edit the Mouse as per their liking. From the Lighting to the DPI, you can set it all. You can rebind Keys & set Profiles for what you need. The XPG PRIME is the perfect tool and has been a blessing to use.
Some of the options the XPG PRIME offers are pretty limited but if you log in with your credentials, you will unlock more Features. As I have mentioned above, you can set up three profiles for what you need. The DPI Button scroll between one to six various DPI options that you have set in the XPG PRIME software by changing the number of Steps.
The XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming Mouse is pretty Solid & durable. The Mouse can take some Fall Damage as well as the slams while Gaming. I am a Low-Sens guy, so I often lift and drop the mouse. The XPG Alpha Wireless managed to survive all that slamming, especially when things got heated. You know, Valorant can be painful sometimes. Although it is Solid, it has a Plastic Body. So I do not recommend you fling it to a Wall or the Floor. If you manage to avoid that, the Mouse will go on for a long time.
The XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming Mouse has over 60 hours of battery life. I can vouch for this as I used it constantly at 2.4G mode which consumes a lot of Battery. The Mouse went for the whole week without Charging. Even if the Battery drains out, you can charge it up for an hour & get almost a Day of use out of it.
The XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming Mouse is pretty Solid & amazing. Although I have praised the Mouse a lot in this Review, there are a few Cons to the Mouse. First Off, the XPG Alpha Wireless Mouse costs about 4782.58 INR. That is a pretty hefty price considering that most Gaming Mice have better Specs & Designs. Secondly, the Wire that comes with the Mouse is not as malleable and can be a nuisance to deal with. Another problem is if the Wire gets ruined, then you will have to order it from XPG as a Third-party USB Type-C cable will not work. If you can deal with it, then the XPG Alpha Wireless can become a good option for you.
The XPG Alpha Wireless has a Wired variant that is around 1.5K cheaper but is not as worth it as the other options available. The XPG Alpha Wireless on the other hand is pretty good for its price. In my opinion, purchasing the XPG Alpha Wireless is a pretty good deal & worth it.
