Cooler Master MasterMouse MM520 & MM530 Review

Rating: 9.0.

Following on from our look at Cooler Master’s budget headset, the MH320, today our attention turns to two equally cheap mice – the MM520 and the MM530. Both have the same core features, including PMW 3360 sensors, RGB lighting and robust PBT panels, but they differ in terms of their shape. Could these be new budget kings?

Typically, the mice we review cost anywhere from £50 to upwards of £100. It is quite interesting, then, that Cooler Master’s MasterMouse MM520 and MM530 both cost just £34.99 here in the UK, placing them right at the very budget end of the market. Can they impress, and are they good value for money? Let’s find out.
