Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation
Packaging for the MM710 is quite compact, as neither dimension is over six inches! On the front, laid on top of the Cooler Master purple we see on a lot of their products, we see the mouse in near life-size. We are told at the bottom that this is a pro-grade gaming mouse with a honeycomb shell and Ultraweave cable. That leaves us with the three white circles at top-right, where its light weight is shown, the 16K DPI range, as well as the 10-million clicks of the main switches.
The right side of the box does not afford a ton of room for information, but Cooler Master figured out how to cram in the fact that this is a gaming mouse, the MM710, and if you need more information visit them online, in twenty-three languages!
The back of the box starts with the Cooler Master name and logo, as well as the MM710 naming, but below are six things they feel you need to know about it. It has a lightweight honeycomb shell, it is an ambidextrous shape but no concessions made to left-handed gamers. There is mention of the PTFE feet used, the Ultraweave cable covering, the high-end switches, and lastly, showing us the 16,000 DPI optical sensor. These features are then repeated in eight languages before we see the support address, system requirements, and the model/serial number sticker.
As we make it to the left side of the packaging, we see that Cooler Master offers the logo and tagline to the left of the full name of the MM710. At the right, we see the specific model number to the included mouse on the sticker with UPCs.
Under the packaging, or on the bottom panel, we find regional information should you need the address of one of them, or if for some reason you need to make contact by phone, it is all right here for you to use.
Inside the box, there is only some folded cardboard for crush protection. Thankfully our sample was packed well in a larger box, but the reality is that if this box was under something substantial, that cardboard is going to offer little resistance. The mouse is also wrapped in a thin foam bag to protect the finishes, which it did perfectly, and we also see a baggie with bits in it set into the gap of the cardboard.
The guide provided with the MM710 is small and to the point. Once opened, we are shown the button overview, there each button on the mouse is labeled. On the next panel is a pair of charts for package contents, and on the back panel is where Cooler Master presents the warranty information. Our MM710 is a pre-release sample, and things may have changed, but there is no mention anywhere of the MasterPlus software, or where to obtain it.
We cannot say this enough, every manufacturer who sells a mouse to someone should include a spare set of feet in the box, as Cooler Master did! Whether there comes a need to open the mouse to fetch out a screw that accidentally fell in, or when the time comes that the feet are just plain worn out, the replacement set is there, waiting to be used! As a reviewer, I need to remove the feet, which many are destroyed in the process, and having the extra set made our job so much easier!
