My word of advice to Alienware is redesign the six button side plate to bring the buttons back a quarter inch and down a few cm. as well as get rid of the lip that the top mouse buttons create. The last change would be to never make a mouse without grips. Probably your biggest design flaw!
The mouse looks good. Lights aren’t too bright, and customizable in their (still) clunky interface. Build is solid, and the design is generally well-received. Doesn’t feel cheap, and after using it for a few months it still feels brand new.
It features a lot of customization options, including adjusting the palm rest, swapping out the sides, lighting, DPI, and weight. I removed the extra weights because it’s hard enough (impossible) to lift as it is, no matter which of the swappable side pieces you use. I am using the 2 left side buttons instead of the 6 button configuration because I don’t have Trump hands and those 6 buttons were stuffed together like fat people in a clown car.
As many other owners have said, yes, this is a difficult mouse to pick up. There’s no real grip unless you’re going to wind up pressing buttons to compress your hand around the mouse for a lift. I’m not sure how this got past usability testing.
I’ve got an Alienware 51, AW768 keyboard, and 2 AW3418DW monitors to go along with this AW958 mouse so I’m trying to make adjustments to use this mouse so everything matches. I’ll update this review if I uncover the mystery on how to hold this thing properly. Don’t hold your breath.
I tried a LOT of different mice from Alienware, ROCCAT, Logitech and Corsair. All of them were great mice for gamers - but they really hurt my hand. Trying to google "mice for sore pinky" led me to a few forum posts where the AW958 was mentioned in a brief post.
At a glance, the AW958 Mouse sports a unique look that oozes class and boasts a low profile design. There are a few notable exceptions - the cable is braided, the mouse buttons are firm easy to reach and feel fantastic when clicking, and the sides and palm rest are just the right fit.
The mouse is unique in a couple ways. The "wings" have a gap between them and the top of the mouse, making for a aggressive design that is hard to match. The side buttons are flat with a lip on the upper edge of each button. I found the button location is much better due to the slightly lower placement. You can swap the 2 button wing for the included six-button wing for a MMO style setup. The buttons on the six-button wing are a bit higher then the buttons on the two-button wing.
Another big option included in the box is adjustable weights. When you turn the mouse over, you’ll notice a pair of grooved sections on the back. Pushing these in will cause them to pop back and you can then remove them to expose the weight trays. Each weight tray can house up to two of the included 5g weights, allowing you to increase the weight of the mouse by 5, 10, 15, or 20g. It's another feature that sets this apart from competitors in the same price space.
Finally, the Alienware Control Software can be downloaded to set up lots of different options. The ACC is split into three main screens: Lighting, Macros, and Settings. The Lighting tab is pretty self-explanatory and lets you specify a color, choose from six presets, and adjust the tempo.
If you are looking for a mouse that needs to fit just right, I would give this a serious look. Yes, its a few years old - however at the time I am writing this review, there are quite a few new ones for sale. It is the first time in a very long history of cheap plastic products that I can say it was worth every single penny. I would have easily paid double to get the features I have.
Thank you to the Dell Alienware team for creating such a great piece of hardware for those of us that cant use any mouse with the "claw" grip. I am not an employee of Dell, and I was not sent this to review.
