COUGAR 700K Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

COUGAR 700K is a premium mechanical gaming keyboard aimed at serious and professional gamers. Inspired by military "stealth technology", the design is created from elements of geometry; mechanical key modules are mounted on exposed and a bended aluminum structure with premium brushed surface treatments. This structure provides the user with more efficient typing, not to mention a sturdy and strong structural foundation. The ends are then wrapped in a plastic frame to create a protected feel. Intuitive key and button groupings are neatly integrated into the plastic frame, thereby drawing and driving attention towards key areas and allowing the gamers to concentrate and focus on their competitive matches. An extra FPS palm rest with magnetic attachment on the palm rest area provides great ergonomic support for WASD keys control.

FPS PALM REST

Protect yourself from injuries, gain comfort and improve your performance. Especially designed for FPS (but useful as well for other game genres) this detachable rubber palm support provides a strong grip and just the right height to effortlessly keep your hand in place during action, in the right position to access both the WASD keys and the 6 G-Keys with your shortcuts.

700K

SIX G-KEYS

6 programmable G keys (5 on the left side of the keyboard and a sixth one to the right of the space bar) allow for quick access to a variety of functions. Fully configurable, all of them make your life easier by enabling you to access the functions you want without interfering with the standard keys of the keyboard. Five keys on the left side of the keyboard, near the WASD keys for quick access without moving your hand, and a key just to the right of the space bar for thumb use. More keys, no extra hand movements.

700K

INDIVIDUAL KEY BACKLIGHT SETTING

You can individually configure the backlight of all the keys, making sure the key backlight works exactly the way you need to. As for the brightness of the backlight, there are five levels for you to choose from. This function is very often used for the WASD keys, as well as for any relevant shortcuts you might want to keep always on sight.

700K

ON-THE-FLY MODE SWITCH KEY

Your keyboard is already configured, you are playing and suddenly realize that there is another macro that would come in handy for the game you're currently playing. Getting out of the game to record it? Not with COUGAR 700K. With the dedicated MR key for macro recording, you can record new macros anytime on the fly.

Works like a dream, but some minor quality disappointments 5/29/2020 4:50:13 PM

Overall Review: I may be more impressed with this product than is warranted simply because it is my first mechanical keyboard and the difference in typing is unbelievable compared to the cheap keyboards I've used up to this point. I love the feel of the switches. It makes typing a total pleasure.

The styling is very cool. The brushed aluminum creates a nice accent and reflects the light from the LED's to good effect. I have two small gripes and while these are truly minor concerns for me, a more discerning consumer might take issue with these faults.

First, while the LED glow behind the keys is really nice, the LED's don't all effectively light the characters on the keys themselves. The problem occurs on those keys with more than one character, such as the number keys on the top row (with symbols above) or wide keys with complete words like, 'Enter' or 'Shift'. On the top row of number keys, the symbol above the number is lit, but the number itself is quite dim. On the 'Enter' key, the 'E' and 'R' at either end of the word are dimmer than the three middle letters. For the money I paid for this keyboard, I'd hope for uniformly lit symbols.

The other issue I have is a quality assurance problem. The cord on this keyboard is a regular plastic sheathed cord which has had an additional braided nylon sheath added to the outside. I suspect it is mostly for style because the cord feels pretty beefy on its own and I can see that the plastic sheath underneath the nylon braid is sturdy enough. But, therein lies the problem: I can see the plastic sheath underneath the nylon braid. This is because at the point where the cord connects to the keyboard, the nylon braid is a little frayed and puckered. One strand of nylon in particular has come loose and is sticking out like a little tassel and it is at this point that the plastic sheath underneath is visible. I don't understand how this defect passed QA because it is obvious at a glance.

I like to assume that the manufacturer would stand behind their product and replace this unit for these defects (except the LED's because that is clearly a design issue) but I will not bother haranguing them for what amounts to minor cosmetic issues because overall I am very happy with this keyboard. Then again, I am not a discerning consumer.

Tricky but excellent keyboard...until it breaks 10/26/2018 4:01:30 PM

Pros: -excellent keys (mechanical)

-chord is great, accidently almost sliced it opening the package, would have cut any other chord had it not been braided.

-easy use for a first timer mechanical keyboard. Very easy to program macros and straightforward

Cons: -color cannot be changed

-Firmware is an issue. see other comments for a full description.
During firmware update, it freezes. Upon restart the keyboard will still be blinking for the firmware update and not work. What I needed to do was uninstall the keyboard and mouse drivers, and reinstall. It then worked fine and has ever since. The mouse I have is logitek so there might be some incompatibility issues

-update, have had it for awhile now, stopped working completely on 3 different computers... would not recommend for the casual user

Updated Review - Excellent hardware design and layout 5/18/2018 12:09:56 PM

Pros: The design of the hardware, keys, cords, and ergonomics of this keyboard are superb. The light level for key back-lighting can be fine adjusted to your needs. Quality of components is very high, with excellent stability from a rigid aluminum back frame. The UNIX software allows for smooth compatibility of other Cougar mice. Adjustments can be made quickly, and many profiles can be saved while Macros can be setup and saved with ease.

Cons: I had a number of problems while using this keyboard and 700M mouse on USB 2.0 ports w/WIN 8. I finally got this combination of keyboard and mouse to work very well by shifting both the keyboard and mouse to the USB 3.0 ports. Apparently, the output rates (information flow) is quite high for this product; therefore, it might be overloading the USB 2.0 ports completely, causing lockup's and freezes. The included "driver" is only for Win 7. Win 10 IGNORES this "driver" and uses its own driver for the keyboard. UNIX is not really a "driver" in this situation. UIX is an overlay software program for custom programming the 700K, Cougar mice, and lighting control.

Overall Review: OK, and am again using the 700K and Cougar mouse combination with good results. It is a shame my first experience was not good. I WAS USING WIN 8.1 AT THAT TIME, so with Win 10, and shifting the 700 keyboard and mouse to the USB 3.0 ports do the trick?????? Not sure, but all is well now.

Good, but not as good as I expected 4/4/2018 8:43:32 AM

Pros: Keyboard is very sturdy, keys are very responsive, and fairly quiet. Works very well for typing if you lower the key repeat rate.

Cons: There was a small, 1/4" long scratch in the aluminum body on the one I received. Not bad enough to make me want to replace it, but for the price of this keyboard, it shouldn't be there. The three volume controls are NOT Cherry MX red switches, and are quite sticky. You really have to punch the key to get it to work. They are also significantly lower than the rest of the keys, which is annoying. The difference in force required to activate them really throws me off, since I'm expecting that the red switch force will work, and it doesn't. So if those keys were red switches, I would give this a 5 star.

Overall Review: If you have big hands like me, the palm rest isn't big enough.

Really excited to get this 3/17/2018 4:37:33 PM

Pros: - right off the bat, i was really impressed by the unorthodox design of the space/g6 bar split and side keys. i was looking for something of equal/superior quality to the BlackWidow Chroma at more or less half the price.
- most players use WASD, but I use WQES as it feels too hard to hit f1 or the tilde (`) with WASD, extending the reach of my fingers. The unorthodox design of the cougar 700k will open up many options for my pinky finger that were not available to me before.
- highly recommend this keyboard for Overwatch and Hotbar MMOs like Final Fantasy XIV and World of Warcraft due to the very specific macros used in those games like arena1 arena2 arena3 etc.
- exterior looks really nice, super sturdy.
- atm it comes with a nifty mechanical keyboard toolkit, free of charge :)

Cons: - pretty sure the only glow color you can get is this red/orange looking color. as much money as people put into setups these days you are LOSING MONEY not making this an option. If my computer case, mouse and monitor have red LEDs, I want my chair and keyboard to be red too!

Overall Review: - if you sell this item in stores that do not have a demo and it has no sampling cutout on the box to test the actuation, YOU ARE LOSING MONEY. This is the entire reason I came to newegg, because even when you go to a local retailer they won't take advantage of the fact they can make a faster sale with demos or testing but at the same time turn around and complain about the rise of online retailers!

I mean think about it friends, do you buy a car without test driving it? Do you marry a woman you've never met? If you buy a drill and it's not good enough or it is complete overkill for the job you bought it for, do you keep it or do you return it? I will use my keyboard for many years, many hours a day. If I just needed a keyboard to check my facebook I would have gone to a pawn shop or facebook marketplace.

Not bad coming from a pre RGB rzr BW ult 1/12/2018 5:54:55 AM

Pros: So far really like this keyboard. I have been using Rzr BW’s for a few years now and wanted something different and something that would match close with the Panzer case I have so of course this fit the bill perfectly. The UIX software seems to be simple and useable from the limited time I have had to mess around with it. The lighting effects, while a bit limited, are pretty cool. It’s a user’s taste regarding the palm rest design but for me I really like it compared to not having one with my Rzr BW Tournament.

Cons: I would have likes to see some more metal construction but I guess that's hard to come by these days.

Some lay out oddities like the split space bar and missing left side windows key(may be a plus for some) but nothing major.

Price may be a bit high on it comparing it's functionality to other keyboards, especially if RGB is a must for someone, but if this keyboard has longevity through it's build quality then it can be justified.

Overall Review: -Rated 4 stars for now, I may revisit the review after spending some more time on it. It doesn't quite check every box for me but it was a definite upgrade from my old keyboard with plenty of extra functionality and IMHO a cleaner and simpler software system. In total I am very happy with it.
-The UIX software is pretty interesting in how you download an application for each Cougar Perf but it all functions from one GUI so it's not to bad or cumbersome to use. I'm running Win 10 Pro 64 and have not seen any stability issues yet.
-I just wish they made this model with RGB functionality to match the rest of my system but the orange will work for me and I knew this before buying it.

Solid doesn't even begin to describe it. 11/15/2017 11:14:20 PM

Pros: -The feel of typing and again the feel of typing is so like heaven. Took me like a week to get used to fluent motions again as opposed to a cheaper keyboard.
-Nice wrist rest
-Easily configurable
-Improved my first person shooter gaming even.
-So many Features and configurations
-Macros are easy to program and use even without program if you read instructions.

Cons: -I have to say not much first, because this keyboard is solid as can be. Feels like heaven to type.
-OK, i get it you can turn off sleep mode immediately, but my gosh it is annoying as a default. A nice light fading sleep mode would have been better than trying to imitate the Vegas strip.
-There is a bit of inconsistency in the lighting on the number keys (just fades up a bit)

Overall Review: Lots of features and macros that I won't actually need, but if I take a step down it won't have thing like disabling the windows key and one I was looking at didn't have media buttons, but was mechanical. I will use just enough of the features.
I would buy this again and again. I will probably only use one of the macro buttons, but they are very functional. I tried the feature to test and they worked as promised.
The appeal over their cheaper mechanical board is really the media buttons, lighting mode switch, windows key off, and multi memory keyboard setting for my use at least.
If you are just looking for the typing feel I suppose you could go with their stripped down model, but even if it's one feature you will use all the time it might be worth it if you spend a bunch of time on the computer.
