Introduction

Founded in 2007, Cougar is a relatively new manufacturer that has been making efforts to enhance their global presence. When we posted our first review of their extravagant Challenger case back in 2012, Cougar was just taking their first steps into the North American market. Nowadays, their products can be found in most parts of the world. The German company originally started as a case and power supply manufacturer over seven years ago, but more recently they have branched out into the advanced gaming peripherals market. Today we are looking at two of these new peripherals, the 700K mechanical keyboard and the 700M gaming mouse.

The 700K and the 700M are Cougar's best keyboard and mouse at this point of time. The 700K can be shortly described as an aluminum body, fully programmable mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX switches, while the 700M is an advanced ergonomic gaming mouse designed specifically for FPS gaming. Their specifications are, at the very least, impressive; unfortunately, so is their retail price, and not in a good way. The 700K and the 700M are retailing for $150 and $70 at the time of this review, pitting them against a long list of other similarly impressive products available from a dozen other manufacturers. Do they have what it takes to stand out from the crowd? We will find out in this review.

    1MHz Polling Rate? Or is it supposed to be 1KHz?

    If it is correct, could someone tell me how that works over USB? :)

    It's more of a flash suppressor like the A2 than a muzzle brake. Just sayin'... Reply
