Cougar is a recent entrant to the gaming-gear market. While the brand was established in 2007, it mainly focused on PSUs and enclosures. Now it expanded to new grounds, with a new department dubbed Cougar Gaming. With the entry-level gaming mouse 600M, its time to put the brand to the test.
As I said, Cougar is one of the new guys, and honestly, its kinda hard not to get lost in this massive, continuously expanding peripheral market. You have to bring something really interesting to the table if you want to be noticed / appreciated. In this regard, Cougar has a very rugged aesthetic going for it, with metal bits, loads of pretty lights, and sharp edges. Right now they have several mice models available, and 2 mechanical keyboard-types. This line-up should be enough, if what they're selling is actually worth it.
I got my hands on the 600M, a mid-range gaming mouse with a sleek shape, very flashy accents, and size / ergonomics dedicated to (palm) claw-grip users, or at least that's what I could gather from the first five minutes with it.
Is it any good though? That remains to be seen. I have to check it up thoroughly, maybe even pry it open, check the software package, see what makes it tick, and after that, I can give it a proper verdict.
