Cooler Master MM710 Gaming Mouse
As mice go, the shape of the MM710 is "standard" fare. There is a wider gap than usual that follows the bottom of the main button, as it goes back over the pair of shiny side buttons. The lower portion is concave in shape to allow the thumb to grip it comfortably but is also where the honeycomb weight reduction takes place, allowing us to see right through the MM710, and is also a way for air to flow through it.
The back of the mouse is rounded across the heel, and with the textured plastic offering the matte finish here, we see many more honeycomb-shaped holes, where plastic has been removed from the frame, leaving a spot near the top for a blanked-out Cooler Master logo ring.
While Cooler Master made mention of the ambidextrous shape of the MM710, while true, there are no buttons on the right side of the mouse for left-handers to use. The gaps are the same, the shape of the side panel is the same, and even the layout of the honeycomb openings are identical.
At the front of the MM710, the buttons do come to a point near the center, but both of the main buttons are curved to help keep your fingers in place. Below the main buttons, from dead center of the mouse, the Ultraweave cable leaves the MM710.
In the gap between the main buttons, we see the shiny black scroll wheel and the rubber ring around the outside with the DPI level selector button behind it. We can also see that Cooler Master did not stop at the heel and the sides of the mouse, they also put seven openings in each of the main buttons!
With the weight of the MM710 being what it is, we feel it would be perfect for traveling with as well. However, while the Ultraweave on the 1.8 meters of cable is nice, a more permanent solution for wire tending would be much appreciated! Not only is the USB 2.0 connection gold plated, purple on the inside, and has the Cooler Master name in the plastic, we also see a Ferrite choke in-line.
Under the MasterMouse MM710, we find a wide, white PTFE foot used to support the front of the mouse. The product sticker comes next, with the model and serial numbers on it, and then a vast expanse of more honeycomb-shaped holes, with the optical sensor eye placed in the center of it all. That leaves us with the other pair of white PTFE feet, supporting the back of the MM710.
