Unboxing

The box is really simple. It is just a cardboard box with Alfawise on front, on the sides we see that it is about the V10 and that it is a gaming mouse. And that is it. Inside we find only the mouse, no guide or manual. Easy packaging.

Hardware & Design

The Alfawise V10 is not the biggest mouse, but it is comfortable to hold. The buttons are in a good position so you can click them very easily. Since the Alfawise V10 is made from plastic, it is a light mouse. That is not a bad thing, but I can understand that some people like to have a more heavier mouse. At the bottom of the mouse we can change the HZ rate and the RGB mode.

Features

Of course we have the RGB lights, which look cool. I think that the real value in this mouse is the ability to change the behavior of the buttons. With the software you can change the way the buttons react, so you can really personalize the Alfawise V10.

Modus

There is a switchable button at the bottom of the Alfawise V10. Here you can change the mode of the RGB light. There are 4 different modes to select.

  • Mode 1: This is the “Glowing” mode. Every color glows from super dark to bright and dark again. When the whole circle is made, it switches to the next color.
  • Mode 2: I call this the “Flow” mode. It changes color in a flowing way and it siwtches really smoothly.
  • Mode 3: This I call the “Switch” mode. It suddenly switches color without any glowing or flowing. Just bright colors and sudden switches.
  • Mode 4: “Nothing”. No colors, no switching. Just a black mouse.
  • HZ Rate

    You can adjust the HZ rate like you can change the RGB Mode. There is a switachable button on the bottom of the Alfawise V10 which you can set to 125, 250, 500 or 1000 HZ. This HZ Rate, also known as Polling Rate or Report Rate, is used to set how many times the mouse will send data to the computer. In the table below you see how often this happens if you set it to one of these rates.

    HZ Rate    
    125
    2505001000HZ

    Software

    You can also change the behaviour of the buttons, which is super handy! This way you can really make it personal. To change the buttons behaviour, you need THIS PROGRAM. (Downloading this program is at own risk. Your computer can give you a warning since it is an .exe file)

    With the software as you can see, you can change the actions associated with the buttons. You can also change the mouse speeds, scrolling speed or the double click speed. There is also the option to change the Macro Settings. To get to this menu, you have to click the “gear” sign in the top of the program. Here you can change the speeds and the macro’s.

    For me this is really a big plus. Being able to change the action of the buttons so you have the power to decide what each buttons does is really handy. Now, if you are a gamer, you can take advantage over someone who does not have the option to choose this.

    Conclusion

    If you are on a budget and want a gaming mouse which is highly adjustable, this is a good option. You can change the behavior of the buttons, the lights and the HZ rate and DPI. The mouse is easy to hold and fits your hand (depending on the size of your hands) good. It is comfortable to use. You can not change the weight of the mouse, which for some people would be very handy. The Alfawise V10 is not that heavy now.
