What a lightweight wireless mouse could possibly have in common with the VW Golf? Both are above-average cars that can do everything, but can’t set any absolute highlights. Whether the MM712 with its average price-performance ratio and modest configuration can also become a bestseller, you can read in the review.
Lightweight mice are a trend that needs to be tested to be understood. After initial skepticism, I quickly understood and came to appreciate the idea and the advantages. I never found my way back to the very heavy Logitech G502, which I had adored for years. At just 59 grams, the Cooler Master MM712 is one of the lightest wireless mice around, without sacrificing any important features. To see what the Hunger Hook can do, let’s first unpack it from its packaging.
The packaging once again picks up on the gaudy design that Cooler Master chose some time ago. Eye-catching and modern, something different than the boring black/gray. I like it.
The mouse is held in place by a cardboard slider, and in the little bag at the top are grip tape stickers that you can stick on the mouse’s casing for extra grip.
A quickstart guide and a cable are also in the box.
The cable can either be used for charging, as a connection cable or in combination with the small black USB-A to USB-C as an extension – for example for the small wireless receiver.
Speaking of the wireless receiver, it can be found in a separate compartment in the bottom of the mouse.
Other things to be found on the bottom: high-quality PTFE gliding feet, the PixArt sensor, the button for pairing (Bluetooth), the switch between Bluetooth/wired/2.4GHz connection mode and the profile switch for switching through the 5 profiles.
The workmanship is consistently on a high level, and I will discuss the good look and feel in the corresponding section.
