Summary: Alienware Pro Wireless Gaming Keyboard provides excellent wireless performance with impressing polling speeds.


Wireless performance

Wireless is the future, however there are limitations to this technology, especially from a gaming point of view which is speed and reliability – However Alienware continue to refine and redefine their technology. Cue in the Alienware Pro Wireless Gaming Keyboard for 2024 that has been designed for gamers in collaboration with professional eSports Team Liquid. Some of the features include mechanical keys, lighting fast timings (including pro-tuned actuation of 40g), sound dampening, Alienware Command Centre (RGB, macros) plus a generous 72-hours of wireless gaming. Further, it’s a slightly more compact gaming keyboard (75% form factor) and even comes with swappable keys.

The Alienware Pro Wireless Gaming Keyboard comes with an RRP of $199AUD (May 2024) that is available in two colours, Lunar White and Dark Side of the Moon (reviewed). So before we jump into our review, let’s check out some of the features  of the Alienware Pro Wireless Gaming Keyboard.

As you can see, the Alienware Pro Wireless Gaming Keyboard is indeed a… well, a pro when it comes to gaming features.

As mentioned, the keyboard has a small form factor of 75% and measures at height: 4.06cm (1.60 in), width: 31.24cm (12.30 in), depth: 12.70cm (5.00 in) and a weight of just 819.73g (1.81 lbs) which makes it quite portable. Alienware also ensures that this keyboard comes with everything you need from a high quality USB-C cable plus a key tool to swap the keys.


The Alienware Pro Wireless Gaming Keyboard comes well packed from Alienware and once unleashed from its packaging, this gaming keyboard feels sturdy and professional built. Buttons are conveniently located on the back of the unit. The silicon feet underneath the keyboard also give you additional security when your gaming heats up so that it doesn’t move. I also like how the keyboard works straight out of the box and more importantly, the keys feel excellent to use. Further, the wireless connectivity switch on the back informs you of which device it is connected to, which means 2.4Ghz or Bluetooth (3 devices).

On the top, keys are well placed and the 40 grams of actuation force make the keyboard very responsive – while not triggered on the slightest touch, it is more gun happy than most which is a treat for gamers. In terms of setup, the keyboard works straight out of the box, however to maximise the features of this pro gaming product, you do need to install the Alienware Command Center that allows you tweak the keyboard, create macros and use the very impressive RGB lighting, including creating some totally awesome special effects. Alienware should also be commended on this app as it’s very easy to use and navigate, no issues here whatsoever.

What about gaming? A+! The Alienware Pro Wireless Gaming Keyboard 1000Mhz polling rate over the 2.4Ghz connection (and USB-C)  is super fast and I had no lag or issues with connectivity whatsoever over the wireless connection. Games such as Borderlands 2, Call of Duty Modern Warfare III, Overwatch 2 and Control worked like a charm on the Alienware Pro Wireless Gaming Keyboard and more importantly, it was all via a wireless connection. Another highlight for me were the mechanical keys that again feel great and super responsive with good “clicking”. However you do need to spend a few days training yourself with the keyboard but once you have, this keyboard becomes an extension of your body. Additionally, typing and non-gaming software worked well and this review was written on the Alienware Pro Wireless Gaming Keyboard.

Final Thoughts?

If you’re looking for an affordable and future proofed wireless gaming keyboard, then you’re in luck with the Alienware Pro Wireless Gaming Keyboard which not only aims high but delivers a totally immersive wireless gaming experience. It also looks the part, especially with its RGB lighting, compact design and excellent overall responsiveness with its mechanical keys over a wireless connection.
