Cooler Master MM710 Gaming Mouse Review


Cooler Master MM710: MasterPlus Software

The MasterPlus software for the MM710 includes many of the standard adjustment settings seen on other gaming mice. In the Buttons tab, we can reassign all of the buttons except the left-click button to perform different functions. These functions include mouse, keyboard, and multimedia functions. After making changes, clicking the Apply button will save the button assignments to the memory of the mouse.

The MM710 is highly focused on performance, and I am happy to see many adjustable settings in this tab. We can adjust the Windows mouse sensitivity and double click speed along with polling rate and lift-off distance. There is also an option to tune the sensor to different surfaces. The PWM 3389 optical sensor is rated at 16000 DPI, but the software allows 32000 DPI. I tested the sensor at 32000 DPI, and it is noticeably faster than 16000 DPI. Even if it is truly 32000 DPI, I am not too sure who would benefit from using a DPI at this high of a number.

In the Macros tab, we can record mouse and keyboard keys and save them to a macro function. We can also fine tune each mouse or keyboard stroke down to the millisecond. Once we are finished tuning the macro, we can assign it to any of the remappable buttons.

There are five separate profiles we can cycle between on the MM710. By default, no buttons are assigned to cycle through the profiles. But if you would like to cycle between different profiles, you will have to reassign one of the buttons to allow profile cycling.

In the next section, we will test the MM710 mouse and end this review with my conclusion.
