Cooler Master MM710 Review

The Cooler Master MM710 is without a doubt, the ugliest mouse I have ever reviewed, but it’s very lightweight and works well enough. I always congratulate the peripheral manufacturers for trying something new. The Cooler Master MM710 ($ 50) is unlike any other gaming mouse on the market, with a honeycomb hollow design that makes it one of the lightest peripherals.

It’s good that the MM710 is new though because it’s also the ugliest mouse I’ve ever seen. Although the dozens of blank hex shapes aren’t as awkward as they seem.

There’s something to be said about a mouse that weighs just 1.9 ounces, and the MM710 works just like any other device once you launch the game. But the odd design and middling software package make the MM710 a tough recommendation unless you want something different.

Cooler Master MM710 Design

To give credit to what’s owed, I’ve never seen another mouse like the MM710. It is full of holes. (However, this design is becoming increasingly popular, as brands from Glorious PC Gaming Race to Logitech are trying to capitalize on this trend.) Instead of covering the sensor with a hard layer of plastic, the MM710 clogs all of its internal hardware near the top of the mouse. Leaving the bottom completely hollowed out. To further lighten the device, the chassis is filled with blank hexagons, giving the entire mouse a honeycomb look. The result is a mouse without many mice on it

How you like this design depends on how light the mice like. a 1.9-ounce weight is pushing things up. The Logitech G305 is one of the lightest in the market, and it’s also wireless, and even this mouse weighs 3.4 ounces. The presence of a lightweight mouse allows you to easily move it; The presence of a very light mouse allows you to bypass the target with ease.

Still, like most mice, the MM710 is easy to handle once you get used to its special feel. What annoys me a little more is that the device claims to be unwanted, even though it is mainly geared towards right-handed players. While the mouse is somewhat symmetrical, it has two thumb buttons on the left side and none on the right. The claim from the box that the MM710 is “misleading” sounds a bit misleading.

Other than that the button layout is good, although the mouse is quite small (4.6 x 2.5 x 1.5 inches), so things can get cramped. There is a left button, a right button, a clickable scroll wheel, and a DPI switch. Everything is in its place, although the thumb buttons can be difficult to hold, depending on the size of your hand.

Cooler Master MM710 Features

The MM710’s main feature is its bizarre design, which will be a stern test of your “love or hate” instinct. As for the functions you can tackle, there’s Cooler Master MasterPlus, which gets the job mostly done.

When I first installed MasterPlus, it asked me to update the mouse firmware. (Technically, it prompted me to update the “keyboard” firmware, even though I did own a mouse, but I digress. After a series of somewhat confusing prompts (don’t tell you to unplug and reconnect the mouse until it works properly), the software crashes and won’t It restarts again until I killed the process in Task Manager.

However, once it was up and running, it worked fine. You can reprogram the thumb buttons, customize up to five DPI levels (up to 16,000), or play with more advanced features like polling speed and angle adjustment.

One criticism of the program is that you can only program up to five game profiles at a time, and finding executable files for games on your own is a bit complicated. (Most programs scan your system and organize the game list for you.) The RGB lighting is also absent, but since the lightweight and low price has been the main concern here, it’s not something I expected.

Cooler Master MM710 Performance

Since the mouse is so small and lightweight it would often get past where I was going and then had to make up.

From a real-time gaming perspective, MM710 performed well. I ran the mouse over Overwatch, Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, and Final Fantasy XIV. Mouse analyzed every command, from executing MMO skill rotations to sending a Gothic army against the Byzantines, correctly and quickly.

The mouse is so small and light it often goes past, where I was going to then, had to make up. For a game like Thronebreaker, that’s not a big deal, as you can take as much time as you want to plan your next move. But it did lead to some looming disasters in Overwatch and Age of Empires, where making a split-second decision can mean the difference between winning and losing.

I don’t want to exaggerate the issue. It didn’t happen every other click, and I’m sure I’ll get used to it in time but the mouse is much lighter than anything I’ve ever used, which makes handling difficult.

Pros
  • Extremely light
  • Good performance
  • Novel concept
Cons
  • Unattractive design
  • Feels insubstantial
  • Bare-bones software

Conclusion:

As much as I count Cooler Master to try something new, I don’t think the MM710 will work for most people. The honeycomb design is unattractive and the advantages of having such a lightweight mouse are questionable. Add semi-stable software, and the MM710 will start to appear very much in demand, even for $ 50.

On the other hand, the mouse is not terrible at all. The sensor is great, the performance is solid, and you love it or hate it, you’re unlikely to see another mouse like this. See if you can have one before you decide to buy it within 10 seconds you will know if it works for you.
