Everything is right physically. However, software is the worst I have seen and used.
I have also used Logitech's and Razer's software previously. Cooler master's software is the worst.
Buggy and doesn't work right on Windows 7. Very difficult to use thus a potential very good mouse turn into a medcore experience with the poorly design software.
It is very unfortunate.
As you can see from the picture it comes in quite a tiny box just big enough to carry the mouse itself. Considering that these mice usually ship in just a simple bubble wrap envelope, you have to certainly hope your box doesn't arrive crushed or something because it does not offer much in the way of protection. Mine came in looking brand spanking new so that was good. Included in the box are extra mouse feet and it even comes with grip tape (very thoughtful of companies to start including these). I actually went ahead and applied the side grip tapes that it came with to replicate how the Xornet II was in it's stock form (it came with rubberized sides). Now when I hold the two mice side by side I can barely tell any difference at all (except for the fact that the MM720 is a whole chunky 30g lighter and makes the mouse feel that much more amazing compared to it's predecessors).
For reference I have 19.5 x 10.5 cm hands and use a claw grip with this mouse (IMO the only way to use this bad boy). Coolermaster even straight up says on the box that it is a claw mouse and it is one of the best claw mice I have ever used... just fits your hand like a glove and the new lightweight is a cherry on top. I've seen some people with smaller hands saying they can get away with a palm grip of sorts or those with larger hands saying they fingertip grip it but to me it will always be the greatest claw mouse for sure.
I don't know if this was a feature of past Coolermaster mice but you actually don't really need to use the software at all because you can change basic functions using button combinations.
Middle mouse wheel click + Forward Side Button = color change
Middle mouse wheel click + Back Side Button = color mode change (static, fading, color cycle, indicator and OFF)
*the indicator mode is a static mode that shows you your current DPI via mouse wheel color and current profile via main body LED at all times
Middle mouse wheel click + Right Click = profile change
If your favorite DPI isn't included in the presets (which seem to be the usual 400-800-1200-1600-3200-6400-16000), you will have to use the software to setup your own custom step too I suppose. When you are pressing the DPI button underneath the mouse, your current DPI step is indicated by the color of the mouse wheel but there does not seem to be any documentation anywhere that even tells you what these steps mean (at least I did not see any around). So here is what I determined while just going through each step myself:
Mouse wheel color = DPI step
Yellow = 400
Dark Blue = 800
Pink = 1200
Green = 1600
Light Blue = 3200
Orange = 6400
Red = 16000
Although you don't need the software to use the basic functions of the mouse, I would highly suggest doing one thing that DOES require installing the software and that is going into the settings and changing the "button response time" from 12ms (the default setting that the mouse ships with) to 4ms to ensure you are getting the absolute fastest performance out of your mouse. Also a bonus of installing the software is that you will get updated to the latest firmware for the mouse. After doing all of this though, if you wish to, you can save your settings to any of the mouses 5 profiles that get saved to onboard memory and then proceed to completely uninstall the software because you simply don't need it anymore! Love the simplicity!
The shape is practically identical sitting next to the Xornet II so no worries there about them having changed or messed anything up about it. Coating is quite nice actually and the plastics do feel more premium compared to the MM710 (although I never had a issue with gripping either). Gripping it is really easy. Holes are smaller and better placed as well considering my fingers don't touch them at all compared to the MM710 where there was a hole sitting right where my thumb used to rest (would finish my gaming sessions with a nice indent of the Coolermaster logo on my thumb, lol).
Came into this one with low expectations with all the negative comments towards optical switches and some reviews saying the mouse wheel is kind of loose feeling and not very tactile compared to other options like the ALPS encoder on the previous MM710. However I was pleasantly surprised and really like what Coolermaster has done here. The main mouse buttons are light and very easy to spam click. They feel just fine when bottoming them out and the reset back to normal position feels good.. I would not really describe them as mushy at all. I would almost compare these clicks to the G Pro Wireless clicks, but obviously those being mechanical have more of a tactile feedback. These ones are just super smooth and quiet... it's akin to playing on a console controller with vibration turned off... it's actually quite nice... just calmly aiming around with no rumble or distractions... I might actually prefer this feel! The only other optical click mouse I've tried is the original Razer Viper and that thing felt horrible in comparison... very mushy clicks when bottoming out and the sound was very cheap and hollow. These actually sound like good clicks and don't feel too shabby at all. The light clicks and spammability is really nice without going overboard like the G Pro Wireless does. The clicks on the GPW always made me accidentally click and I haven't accidentally clicked once on the MM720 (besides like the first couple minutes of using the mouse and getting acclimated to it)
As far as the mouse wheel goes, many were describing it as kind of loose feeling. I wouldn't exactly describe it like that but to me it feels like the mouse wheel almost has two modes. When you scroll really slowly and precisely, you can feel each individual step quite easily and it's easy enough to scroll steps one by one and use this for things like switching weapons. When you scroll really fast, for example on a webpage, you definitely do not feel the steps as much but scrolling is nice and quick as a result. The mouse wheel is actually pretty quiet while scrolling as well which is nice. Scrolling downwards seems quieter than scrolling upwards which has a hint of clack to it and resulting in it being a bit louder... I've seen this behavior on other scroll wheels before. Overall, scroll wheel is just fine to me and I plan to use this mouse all the time even outside of gaming (no need to whip out my Logitech MX Master for non-gaming). Mouse wheel click down is really nice... not too stiff and not too easily activated either so it does not feel flimsy.
Now the side buttons.... I am not a side button guy at all. I never use them on any mouse because I simply hate releasing my grip in order to use them. There are mice out there like the G403 where the buttons are large enough and positioned well enough that you can kind of just roll your thumb and easily activate them but this one here similar to the Xornet in the past has a bit of a ledge underneath the buttons + they are positioned quite high. My thumb in a claw grip is resting quite low so there is no way I can easily activate them without releasing my grip. But like I said, I wouldn't even care if this mouse had no side buttons at all because I simply don't use em! At least they are up and out of my way :p But some others might not appreciate this or feel they actually like the buttons... all depends on how you grip it i suppose.
Cable is very nice, just like the one on the MM710... they are not much different to me... I liked the one on the MM710 and like this one just the same... one of the best stock cables and no need to paracord for me.
These ones felt kind of sharp on the edges and I could feel it as I swiped around the mouse on the pad for the first time. But they broke in very quickly and that sharpness is already completely gone. Now business as usual and they feel just fine like the ones on the MM710 did.
The weight of the mouse is really well balanced. When you held the MM710 in the middle with two fingertips, you could tell it was a little front heavy because it would slump right forwards. I heard the MM711 although heavier was a bit better balanced because of it's RGB internals. This MM720 feels very well balanced and I suppose the RGB shroud actually helps that at the back of the mouse. The MM710 and MM720 feel similar weight wise though the MM720 is supposed to be like 4g lighter? I can't tell much of a difference with such a miniscule difference in weight... it made it super easy to swap right over to this mouse!
About the RGB... I loved how the MM710 came with no RGB inside of it... it's useless to me and it saved weight. Now I'm not about to crack open this mouse and remove all the RGB internals because it's already plenty light enough but as I posted earlier it is super easy to simply turn the LED's off even without software. As far as how the RGB looks... the wheel honestly looks kind of cheap & tacky with it's shine through lighting. Turned off, the wheel just looks like any other mouse wheel so that's good. The lighting on the main body of the mouse is pretty good I suppose with the shroud evenly lighting around the mouse. But yeah... OFF looks best to me :)
Overall, LOVING this mouse so far... it's everything I hoped it would be. Feels nice and premium in hand whereas the MM710 did have kind of a cheap feeling to it. No creaks, cracks or squeaks or rattles so far (hopefully it stays that way!). So far it seems like I got an excellent copy... main mouse buttons are uniform as can be, feel and sound the same and that is always nice. No button wobble or anything like that.
Once again, thank you so much Coolermaster for bringing this shape back to life. I can see myself maining this mouse for years to come and my MM710 has been retired to the drawer to collect dust :)
Other mice I've tried recently vs the MM720: XM1, Hati-S, Skoll-S, Naos-M, GPW, Viper Mini, Viper Ultimate, Roccat Kone Pure Ultra, MM710. Probably missing a few others.
-Overall build quality is definitely upgraded from MM710 early days. Solid throughout with no real sign of flex and rattling. Considering it's 49g I am amazed at the build quality.
-Buttons have little to no side wobble
-Little to no pre and post travel
-Clicks and optical switch feel amazing, much better than RVU gen1 switches/clicks or RVM.
-Scroll wheel isn't too bad, light tactile steps. No wobble. Clicks crisp.
-Glossy isn't as bad as some other mice I've tried, gives some good grip. Usually use matte but this is definitely not bad.
-RGB pretty nicely done if you like lights
-Cable is a step up from the MM710. One of the better paracord type cords I've seen. XM1 is still king though
-Feet feel pretty good, no issues. Not sure if tiger/core/etc feet would be much better than this.
-Includes extra feet and comes with grips you can apply. More and more mouse companies should be doing this.
-Side buttons are tiny, requires a bit of reaching for the forward button depending on your grip.
