Alienware AW958 Mouse + AW768 Keyboard: A safe, reliable and conventional choice

Alienware’s AW958 Mouse and AW768 Keyboard seem like a safe, reliable and conventional choice
Price$ 428.00 (AUD)
While their mainline notebooks and laptops have always been the focus for the Dell-backed gaming brand, Alienware have rarely shied away from playing in the broader gaming accessory space. After all, the things that help make a great gaming experience extend far beyond the machine at the heart of it.
The latest additions to this come in the form of the new AW958 Mouse and AW768 Keyboard.
As alluded to above, both Alienware’s new gaming mouse and keyboard are pitched as products built to enhance your existing gaming experience. Since this promise doesn't really tap too much into brand-power, Alienware are more-or-less relying on two things to win customers over: math and aesthetics.
Boasting a resolution range of up to 12,000 DPI, 250 IPS and five toggleable DPI settings, the AW958 elite gaming mouse promises to not only marry top-tier performance and easily customizable aesthetics, but keep them happily married for a lifetime of 50 million clicks.
It comes accompanied by the AW768 keyboard, with which it shares support for Alienware’s AlienFX RGB lighting tech. Again, it’s all about the numbers here. The mechanical switches on the AW768 comes with anti-ghosting and N-key rollover on all keys, onboard memory, 15 programmable macro keys and a set of easy to use media buttons.
The short version: this a pair of gaming products products that will likely sit flush alongside any other Alienware products you might already own and leave it to the numbers to sell help you decide whether or not they’re worth the investment. If you’re already going to be buying a gaming mouse, keyboard and headset, why not keep things in the (Alienware) family?
The AW958 is a wired, surface calibration capable, optical mouse with a resolution range of 100-12000DPI and a braided nylon cable. It comes with four interchangeable side modules and an swappable set of four 5g weights. It boasts integration with Alienware AlienFX RGB lighting system and packs-in 13 programmable buttons.
Then, the AW768 is a wired, mechanical keyboard with brown switches and a 2mm actuation distance. Like the AW958, it supports the AlienFX RGB lighting system. As mentioned above, it’s also got anti-ghosting and N-key rollover on all keys, onboard memory, 15 programmable macro keys (running along the left edge) and a pair of media buttons (a mute key and a volume slider) to flesh out the package.

Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
