Cooler Master reveals the MM720, a new gaming mouse that prides itself for weighing just 49g. Interestingly, that's also the price of the mouse. Cooler Master is currently taking pre-orders for $49.99 via Amazon and will start deliveries on October 27. A black and a white version is offered.

Cooler Master, a global leader in designing and manufacturing innovative gaming peripherals and computer components, has released the MM720 Gaming Mouse, a lightweight gaming mouse with ergonomic form factor. The MM720 launches in matte black and glossy white and is available for pre-order starting today, September 30, 2020. It will be on shelves available for purchase on October 27, 2020 via Amazon, respectively, for $49.99.

The MM720 takes the iconic shape of Cooler Master’s previously popular Xornet and Spawn mice and replaces the housing with an ultralight honeycomb shell, similar to that found on the MM711 series of lightweight gaming mice. In addition, a lightweight ultra-weave cable reduces drag without compromising durability. As a result, the mouse weighs in at a total of 49g and retains the same ergonomic benefits of its previous iterations.

“The Spawn and Xornet mice are still beloved in the PC gaming community to this day,” says Bryant Nguyen, Peripheral General Manager. “Making an updated version of these mice was a matter of ‘when’ not ‘if’ - and adding a lightweight factor to it really puts it over the top as a must-have gaming accessory.”

What’s Upgraded?
Cooler Master has upgraded the internals considerably, with optical switches, a pro-grade 16000DPI optical gaming grade sensor, and PTFE feet for superior glide across your favorite surface. The internals have been coated in dust- and water-resistant material rated and certified at IP58 to provide increased protection.

As an added bonus, the first 30K units manufactured will also include Mice Grip tape included inside the retail packaging for added protection and control. The grip tape is made with anti-slip material, comes pre-cut and extra thick at 0.75mm padding. The Grip Tape will also be available for retail at a later date and priced at $9.99 USD.

The MM720 joins Cooler Master’s MM710 and MM711 to offer a varied lineup of super-lightweight mice in different shapes optimized for different grip types and playstyles. The most recent iterations of the MM711 mice have included limited edition Colorway Designs such as Blue Steel, Wilderness, and Retro - available at the Cooler Master online store, as well as other select retailers.

“We’ve listened to feedback over the years to produce this vast, varied portfolio of lightweight gaming mice to all of those who want it, regardless of grip type,” says Nguyen. “If you need a lightweight mouse that is customized to your play style, we have it.”
