A Closer Look

The Redragon M711 Cobra looks like a gaming mouse, but without having a futuristic look. It's fairly simple and sleek, with the Redragon logo on the back. It has RGB lighting on both the logo and on each side of the mouse wheel. It has a slight downward slant on the right side, too. It has a pretty typical incremented mouse wheel, with RGB lighting. There are notches on the wheel, giving it a rugged feeling.


The Redragon M711 Cobra is a very well-built gaming mouse. It's made of solid plastic and there are no wobbling parts. Due to its wired design and slightly bulky body, the Redragon M711 Cobra isn't the best option for traveling. However, people looking for a gaming mouse for their desk setup won't be bothered by this.


The buttons to control the DPI while using the mouse are located on top of the of the mouse. They give you more accuracy and control when playing FPSs. Two thumb buttons are on the left side of the mouse. There are latex grips on the side to help grab the mouse firmly and it's quite easy to reach all the buttons, too.


The Redragon M711 Cobra is a wired mouse. It has a typical braided cable. This mouse's cable is rigid and not very flexible. The cable maintains a lot of kinks, which can be bothersome when using the mouse. The USB interface can work with 2.0 ports or 3.0 ports.


The Redragon Cobra M711 FPS is equipped with the PixArt PMW3360. According to specifications, the 3360 is capable of up to 12,000 CPI, as well as a maximum tracking speed of 250 IPS, which equals 6.35 m/s. However, the Cobra M711 is capable of up to 24,000 CPI, which is achieved by using interpolation. Out of the box, five pre-defined CPI steps are available: 1000, 2000, 4000, 8000, and 12,000 CPI. Its feet are fairly good and glide well. There isn't any weight optimization with this mouse. It still feels decently light, but isn't as light as some ultra-lightweight gaming mice.

The Redragon is fairly good software. The program allows for full reprogramming of each button on the mouse to do a wide range of actions. Whether you want the scroll wheel to act as a pause/play shortcut or the thumb button to execute a fine-tuned macro, you’re able to make those changes here. You can also fully control the DPI with a range of up to 10,000, which, frankly, is too high for most people, but having the option is nice regardless. The mouse doesn't have onboard memory, so you won't be able to use it with multiple computers, but this might not be an issue for most gamers that only have a single setup. Unfortunately, you can't save multiple profiles and switch between them.

Final Thoughts

Overall it's a really great mouse and even if I'm being critical there just isn't anything chincy about it.. the materials and build quality are just as good as a name brand $70+ mouse. It's great for right-handed people who are looking for a mouse with amazing performance and setting options. The customer service for redragon is excellent and they responded almost immediately to any troubles with solutions.
