Corsair MM700 RGB Overview
Taking a first look at the MM700 RGB it is a very large mousepad, as I said it is more of a desk mat. The official dimensions are 930mm x 400mm.
If you haven’t guessed already this is a cloth mat. Corsair describes the cloth as a “Glide-Enhanced Woven Textile Surface” with “low-friction tracking for pinpoint targeting.” The cloth has a speed feel to me. In the bottom left corner is a Corsair logo.
At the top right corner is the control box, which also features a 2-port USB hub. This is actually the first time I’ve seen this. This makes it quite easy to plug in things like your keyboard or even a USB flash drive. There is a port on the front and another on the right side. On the rear is a Type-C connection for the included USB cable and a small button that you can use to cycle through different lighting effects.
So how does the RGB lighting work? Well there are is think clear tubing that is stitched into the edge of the mousepad. RGB LEDs are in the controller and the light travels through the tubing.
Flipping the mousepad over the backside has an anti-slip textured rubber base, which allows it to stay in place on your desk.
