Hey wassup OCNers? Today we are going to talk about a gaming mouse, the gaming mouse. A gaming mouse that’s only 53 grams, extremely comfortable, and best of all, under $50 bucks. Yes we are talking about the Cooler Master MM710 and in short, it’s glorious.
Hey hey people, I am bluedevil, thanks for coming by and having a chat about Cooler Master’s MM710, a 53 gram lightweight, that I have been using for the last few months. I can honestly say, this is the best mouse I have used to date. Personally I really like the plain honeycomb look that lacks any form of RGB. But the bigger question is, did I get better at FPS shooters? Well I will let you be the judge of that.
Alight, lets rundown the specs of this little guy. The MM710 is a claw, palm, or fingertip style mouse, so pretty universal in terms of player grip type. Made from ABS plastic to keep the weight down to a staggering 53 grams, strength integrity is not sacrificed. The MM710 comes in two color choices, black and white, with a matte or glossy finish. Now under the hood is where the real magic happens with the PixArt PMW3389 sensor. Armed with seven levels of DPI adjustment, ranging from 400 all the way up to 16 thousand. Mouse lift off distance is less than 2mm, with a polling rate of 1000hz. Also under the hood is the 32 bit ARM Cortex M0+ processor, giving the user the ability to save mouse profiles to the available 512kb of onboard storage. Omron switches in both the left and right buttons help keep click longevity strong within the MM710 with a rated 20 million clicks, while the side buttons are a bit mushy, they are not the stars of the show.
So I gathered up a few mice around the studio, in thought I could see which mouse does me good in a few rounds of Quake Champions. To pit against the Cooler Master MM710 is the Nixeus Revel Fit, which is a bit heavier mouse at 99 grams, the Cooler Master MasterSet MS121 mouse at 91 grams, and lastly the Fnatic Flick 2 at 93 grams. Grabbing the Nixeus Revel Fit for my first session of Quake Champions left me in dead last place with only a few frags, not the match I had hoped for. Alright, now the MS121 mouse from the Cooler Master MasterSet. Now this mouse really feels like the MM710, until you move it. While having a lot of the same contours and textures as the MM710, the MS121 still feels a bit too heavy in my second match netting me 3rd place on my team. So feeling a bit frustrated, I swapped over to the MM710, and dayum, 1st place. At almost half the weight of the previous two, the MM710 is most definitely a flick shooter mouse. The final mouse in this lineup is the Fnatic Flick 2. So with a name like Flick, you would think that it’s for flick shooters, and it is. Actually Fnatic has its own esports team if that tells you anything. My last match of Quake Champions, with the Flick 2, was ok, but the mouse still felt heavy compared to the MM710.
Now I am not gonna lie, I am not a godsend to twitch shooters, cause there is much better players than I am for sure. What I will say is that I feel that my accuracy is better with the MM710 than other mice I have used. The fit and finish is good, while some creaking is present, I really can’t complain about the build quality. The MM710 almost feels like a wireless mouse, thanks to it’s ultraweave cable, that’s 1.8 meters long, it seems to glide across anything it comes in contact with it. Not to mention the PTFE feet, which seem to float on any surface you set the MM710 on. Back up on top, is the very clicky left and right buttons, which like I said have Omron switches rated to last 20 million clicks. The angled texture on the scroll wheel also is so comfortable compared to the ribs on the Nixeus Revel Fit and the Fnatic Flick 2.
Aesthetically the CM MM710 checks a lot of boxes for being a great gaming mouse. The model that I got is matte black, which I prefer. The external shell has a honeycomb pattern, which I think resembles the Cooler Master logo more.
What else can you say about a mouse? It’s a straight forward design that works really well.
So in closing, the Cooler Master MM710 gets a perfect score of 5 out of 5 flames. Not only does the MM710 deliver on what is to be noticeably better gameplay from its lightweight design, reduces wrist fatigue, and comes in at a good price.
