Visually, the MM720 from Cooler Master knows how to attract attention in any case. The case of the new gaming mouse is perforated, making the peripheral device stand out clearly from its familiar counterparts. But that’s not the only advantage of the unconventional design: it also makes the mouse a real lightweight. It weighs only 45 grams without cables.
Clearly designed for use with the right hand, the device houses the PixArt-PMW-3389 sensor, is equipped with Omron D2FC-F-7N switches and aims to impress with a sampling rate of 1,000 hertz. Technically, it is thus hardly different from its predecessor, the MM710. Externally, however, the relatives share only little. The MM72 is not only perforated but also shorter and wider than its predecessor. It measures a total of 107 × 75 × 35 mm. It also offers a large finger rest area on the right side. Weighing in at just 45 grams, it is currently the second lightest mouse with a modern sensor – only the M1K from Zaunkoenig is even lighter. Although Cooler Master reserves the right to make slight upward corrections due to structural adjustments, the MM720 should remain lighter than its 53 gram predecessor in any case.
The device, which is equipped with six buttons, will be available in black and white. The manufacturer also stated that it was experimenting with other colours. However, the pink model shown at CES is explicitly intended to be a pre-series model. It therefore remains to be seen whether other colors will come onto the market – and which ones they will be.
PTFE sliding feet and a particularly flexible wrapped cable are among the other special features of the gaming mouse. The mouse should be able to glide over the mouse pad particularly easily. The cable sheathing should also serve the gliding properties.
The MM720 is to be launched on the market in April this year. The targeted price is 60 US dollars.
