To create a setup gamer It is necessary to have high standard items on your desk, including peripherals that can help a lot in your performance! Check out the review that we made of Keyboard Alienware 510K Mechanical It's from Mouse Gamer Alienware 510M!
Alienware 510K Mechanical Keyboard
Design and Construction
Aimed at the gamer audience, this keyboard gives Alienware already impresses with its RGB lighting technology that promises 16.8 million different color possibilities, which can be easily controlled by Alienware Command Center, an application that installs automatically when you connect the keyboard to your desktop or notebook.
The robust keyboard, without visual pollution like excess keys or colors that do not match, comes only with the keys in black and the body in lead color.
Another highlight that we hit the eye when using this keyboard is the rotary volume control, reminiscent of a kind of “steamroller”.
The keyboard Alienware it also has other keys with shortcuts that clearly help in the players' daily lives, such as: multimedia shortcuts, RGB brightness controllers and the “Windows” key blocker, which will surely save you if you accidentally press this button in the middle of a match of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS GO).
Finally, this mechanical keyboard has two height adjustments, a USB port located at the top, and its double USB cable made with a resistant material, sewn and is two meters long.
O Alienware 510K highlights the mechanism of the keys, which have the style low profile 35% lower than conventional mechanical keys.
This brings a better precision to the movement and there is no risk of your finger hitting another key when making a quick move.
It also caught our attention the silent touches of this keyboard, something rare in most competitors in the market.
Alienware has equipped its product with the switches CHERRY MX Red, of the linear type, which bring greater speed to the players because they allow quick double or triple touches on the keyboard.
The keyboard brings the system NKRO – N-KEY ROLLOVER, which records multiple keys pressed simultaneously.
It allows you to type faster, or perform a move in which you need to press several keys as in a strafe at the CS: GO, which consists of appearing and hiding behind a wall or object in order to search for information on the map, or to “fish” the enemy of Sniper (AWP).
The products Alienware are in a price range above most popular brands, and the price of the keyboard can scare the player who has a tighter budget: on the website Dell, Alienware's official reseller in Brazil, the 510K costs R $ 799.00.
When testing the Alienware, we immediately noticed the great performance of this keyboard: when playing CS: GO it was possible to execute more straight and uniform movements, giving quality to strafes and “hake” from AWP – Sniper.
Having this peripheral installed in your gamer setup guarantees great moves.
For those who do not want many aesthetic details or buttons in excess, the 510K fulfills its role to the needs of gamers, bringing a performance in response time, agility and speed in the execution of the most complex plays, in addition to the RGB lighting that brings a totally futuristic and elegant look to the keyboard.
Alienware 510M Gaming Mouse
Design and Construction
O Alienware 510M Gaming Mouse brings an ergonomic look similar to a spaceship.
Robust and elegant, it has the colors matte black and lead, and comes equipped with three buttons on the left side, two buttons next to the left click button, the classic left and right buttons, and a sensitivity control button (DPI) that changes the color when selecting another resolution.
The mouse has LED lighting that can vary in color, and the USB cable has the same material used on the keyboard 510K, with good resistance and textile type finish.
The great advantage of obtaining a mouse like this from Alienware the number of buttons that can be configured for different macros, making games much faster and more practical.
Possible 10 buttons configurable by the application Alienware Command Center, the purpose of this mouse is to bring ergonomics and reaction speed to the player.
O Alienware Command Center allows you to configure different functions for a better experience when using this mouse, such as mouse sensitivity, create game macros or shortcuts for daily use, and also mark game profiles in order to access the configuration created for each type game, be it an FPS or RPG, for example.
The configured skills can be activated via the side buttons.
However, the position of these buttons could be improved, since the thumb ends up accidentally triggering the skills configured for these buttons, as occurred when testing with the game League of Legends (the macro was set up to release one of the skills that remain in the Q / W / E / R boats and ended up spending a skill unnecessarily).
The mouse Alienware brings 16 thousand DPI of resolution, offering a high reflection rate.
Bear in mind that high resolution doesn’t mean greater accuracy when aiming at CS: GO, for example, the movement will only be faster and with greater reflex.
Therefore, I need to test which sensitivity best suits your playing style, and the mousepad it also directly influences the choice of your DPI.
The price of Alienware 510M accompanies other products superior to those of competitors, averaging R $ 400.00 on the official website of Dell.
When we tested this mouse from Alienware, the peripheral gains positive points in its beauty and ergonomics, bringing comfort in its use (although this noble editor found the mouse a bit heavy and with the feeling of having a larger structure due to its small hand).
In the test when playing CS: GO and League of Legends, it is noticed that the clicks are fast, silent and soft, which brings quality to the moves, and with the macro function it is possible to configure any skill in the chosen game.
With that, this mouse will certainly bring great advantages for players with its ergonomics, precision, speed and macros that can be configured as shortcuts, completely optimizing your gaming experience.
