Dell recently announced a slew of Alienware hardware including a range of gaming mice and gaming keyboards. Now, just one day after their initial announcement, Alienware's newest gaming accessories are available. There are three new mice available, the Alienware Wireless Gaming Mouse, the Alienware RGB Gaming Mouse, and the Alienware Wired/Wireless Gaming Mouse. There are also two new keyboards available, the Alienware AW510K and the Alienware AW310K.
The Alienware Wireless Gaming Mouse gets up to 300 hours of gaming on a single AA battery. It has six programmable buttons and a 12,000 DPI PixArt Sensor for accuracy and precision. It's available in black with a small accent between the two top buttons. The Alienware Wireless Gaming Mouse is available for $63.
The Alienware RGB Gaming Mouse supports Alienware RGB. It has ten programmable buttons, and you can customize the scroll wheel. It has a 16,000 DPI sensor which Alienware points out is "best-in-class." It's available in "dark side of the moon" which is a two-tone color combination featuring dark grey and black. The Alienware RGB Gaming Mouse costs $75.
The Alienware Wired/Wireless Gaming Mouse supports either wired or wireless connections and gets up to 350 hours on a single charge. It has a 16,000 DPI sensor and a customizable scroll wheel. It also has seven programmable buttons. It's available in "Lunar Light" (white) and "Dark Side of the Moon" (black and dark grey). You can also customize its look using Alien FX RGB Lighting. The Alienware Wireless/Wired gaming mouse is a bit more expensive at $100.
On the keyboard side of things, the AW510K packs a low-profile design with Cherry MX switches. Besides low-profile switches, the keyboard features per-key customizable RGB lighting, fully programmable keys, and a dedicated volume roller. Rated for durability up to 50 million keystrokes, the AW510K comes in either white or black variants, and the floating keys make it easy to clean if things get a little grimy. The AW510K is available for $160.
The Alienware AW310K is a more simple keyboard. You'll still get Cherry MX Red switches here, fully programmable floating keys, and dedicated media keys. As opposed to the RGB keys seen on the AW510K, however, you'll only get white backlit keys here, and it's not low-profile. The Alienware AW310K is listed at $100.
