The DW 9100 is named Slim and measures 44 x 13 x 1.5 cm. Despite its length, it takes up little space on a table. Aesthetically, the whole is refined with a copper plate under the keys and with a base of the same color. The mouse is definitely linked to this black and copper alloy, but we’ll get to that in more detail later.
Despite the chassis being mostly made of plastic, the build quality is impeccable in any case. The manufacturer has chosen a hard coating that has the advantage of not retaining fingerprints. The keyboard is very stiff and the endings are very neat; It is flawless on that side.
In this model, the cherry did not install pull-out feet to lift it, but was adorned with non-slip pads that could not be removed.
The DW 9100 Slim connects to the back of a rechargeable keyboard and USB-C / USB-A cable. It works when inserted, which is very commendable. Next to the USB-C port is a power button and a selection switch for wireless connection. In fact, Cherry offers two types of connections: via Bluetooth or a 2.4 GHz USB-A radio receiver. Especially for standard PCs that do not have Bluetooth, we appreciate that the choice is left to the user. It also offers the ability to connect the keyboard to two different computers.
There is a keyboard A priority Some features, but Cherry Keys software actually allows you to configure a lot of shortcuts on the F keys on the top of the keyboard for quick access to certain folders, programs or macros. Finally, the backlight is not as visible as the wireless keyboards, and the LEDs indicate their function only on the Shift and Number keys. Autonomy is logically high, but it was unfortunately not reported by Cherry. The battery capacity is 650mAh and it cannot be removed.
Aside from the colors and materials that go with the keyboard, the little mouse in the bag looks like two drops of water MW 8 upgraded From the same manufacturer.
Some technical components differ, especially in terms of sensitivity, the dpi can be adjusted in three stages using the button located under the dial: 1000 dpi, 1600 dpi or 2400 dpi. The wheel is also noticeable, but does not provide free or horizontal scrolling.
Its dimensions are 99 x 62 x 33 mm and its weight is 90 grams which is a very practical mouse to carry anywhere, but this small size will prevent the use of large hands. Absorption Palm grip Very hard and necessary to support the grip of a nail (Nail grip) Or at your fingertips (Fingertip) Also, despite the symmetrical shape, the mouse is not really blurry because the buttons on the edge are located only on the left side.
As a bonus, a Vellore caring case is provided to protect the cherry. The USB-C cable is plugged into the front and can be used with the mouse while recharging. Turning it on, we find slide-enhancing PTFE pads, a magnetized housing for the USB receiver, a switch to select the connection type, and a small activation button for the Bluetooth connection.
In total, there are six buttons with two main clicks, two side buttons, sensitivity adjustment and wheel click. Like the keyboard, you can assign different functions to these buttons using the Cherry Keys software. Key clicks respond surprisingly to this Ilkin mouse.
