With a plethora of gaming mice available to gamers, companies have to really work to provide a product that stands out from the rest of the field. We’ve seen this come in iterations over the years, covering everything from lighting and swapable components, to exotic materials and tons of gimmicks. Cooler Master is no stranger to the peripheral world, and their MM830 offers a slightly different take on the multi-button mouse design, and even includes a pretty nice tactical feature that we rarely see. Now that we have had our hands on the Cooler Master MM830 for a bit, we are ready to share our results with you!

The MM830 comes packaged in a pretty standard box design, with a large image of the mouse on the front, highlighted by various features. The front of the retail packaging provides a good balance of information and visuals, without being too overwhelming.
The backside of the MM830’s box again highlights a few of the more interesting features of the mouse, this time with a little more information about each of them. A grouping of feature lists in various languages is also present, to assist with non-English buyers.
