Cougar announced the release of the mechanical gaming keyboard COUGAR 600K.
Sharing design with the full-sized COUGAR 700K that already, the 600K offers a different approach with the same quality. While the COUGAR 700K is fully customizable and comes bundled with many features, the 600K caters to purists, people for which the most important is that nothing gets in the way.
The 600K is a N-Key Rollover mechanical keyboard featuring Cherry MX Switches. Its purist approach to functionality means that there is no need to install drivers or set it up to start using it. With the box open, the keyboard is just plug-and-play. To complement this, and in a strictly non-intrusive way, a few essential functions useful for gaming are incorporated, which need no configuration or installation.
The 600K allows for quick adjustment of the repeat rate of keys, especially useful for games which require pressing repeatedly a specific key. Apart from this, a dedicated key to activate or deactivate the Windows key, a lighting control for the WASD and Direction keys LED and multimedia keys supplement the core functions. These extra keys are located on top of the keyboard, so they won't require the user to adjust his movements in any way to reach all the standard keys. In addition, 600K includes a USB pass-through, completing the set of small additions to make the user’s life more comfortable.
“We knew that there were people who simply weren’t interested in the plethora of functions offered by high end keyboards but at the same time didn’t want to settle for a lower end one. For all those people, who just want a pure, high quality mechanical keyboard in a durable and elegant design, we created the COUGAR 600K,” said Lio Huang, Marketing Dept. III Director, COUGAR.
The COUGAR 600K will be available in all four Cherry MX Switch colors.
