Cyborg M.M.O. 7 mouse
To change things a bit, we chose another product altogether to test and afterwards review. And by “another product” we mean a mouse, the $130 Cyborg M.M.O. 7 mouse to be exact. And we chose it because we know there are many gamers among our readers. So let’s see together what (hopefully) pleasant surprises this model offers. Or not.
A special gadget for gamers
The Cyborg M.M.O. 7 is a gaming mouse that breaks conventions. The number of keys it features is more generous. We counted 1 mode shift button and sideways wheel, 5 thumb keys and a four-way POV switch on the thumb rest. The ones for the pinky sport 1 key. Then there is the main mouse boasting other 2 mode keys besides its usual number of buttons and 1 sensitivity key. The design of this product translates into a weight cartridge which includes 3 palm rests that can be interchanged, five 6-gram weights and 3 pinky rests that can also easily be interchanged for a more comfortable use.
If you want comfort when using a gaming mouse, then the M.M.O. 7 is the right model for your everyday gaming needs. However, at first we were a bit taken aback with the design, but we got accustomed after a not too long period of time. But remember: to have the most enjoyable experience, first program this mouse’s keys to act accordingly. Either way, the thumb keys that have a different position on the mouse were very handy in tests while gaming.
As on any other gaming mouse, the M.M.O. 7 has a couple of both mode and non-mode keys. The former gave us access to ActionLock. This is a feature that switches the clicking option to the holding one. The non-mode keys has 3 modes. They react according to the type of game you are playing by mapping various modes. This option makes the M.M.O. 7 all the more appealing. But apart from having many pros, it also comes with cons, naturally. When you are playing a game and you have to stop yourself to change something, it’s not nice. Well, the problem is that the user can quickly press the ActionLock by sheer without wanting to. That results into a simultaneous pressing of the mouse key and the ActionLock one.
The official Internet page of Mad Catz lists a rather large number of game profiles of different genres. According to the explanation we found, the aforementioned game profiles help the user of this mouse choose the best commands for a game or several. Personal configuration is the key element here. For our tests we chose 3 profile titles. One of them was Star Wars: The Old Republic one. The time it took to load them all was no more than several minutes. We wanted to see the same fast times when it was time to change the profile we were using to a different one. To do that, we had to access the mouse’s software. And that took quite some time. After that we cleared the profile we were using and that was that. It should have happened way faster, but we weren’t that greatly bothered by it.
Today’s mouse, the Cyborg M.M.O. 7, is a tool that will befit many people who are into gaming. This mouse does not require a generous amount of money, is swift and delivers an enjoyable performance. Minus that sometimes annoying ActionLock option.
