No macros, no remappings, no setups. Just you and the highest quality keyboard available on the market.

Great full keyboard 10/27/2016 2:06:45 PM

Pros: Upgraded from a glitchy membrane keyboard, and I don't think I'm ever going back to those.
-LEDs are nice, WASD keys are illuminated which I like for gaming
-Satisfying to type on, my first mechanical keyboard
-Detachable handrest as well as detachable magnetic rubber pad on Left side is a nice and appreciated feature
- USB port on backside of keyboard is smart, makes it easy to hook up your mouse, I mean besides touchpads who doesn't use one?

Cons: Download software for keyboard seemed incomplete and non-functioning so I was kind of left in the dark with that, but keyboard worked fine without it regardless.

Overall Review: Not a con but make sure speed setting is set to 1x if you're playing a game, otherwise it may cause issues with keys that are held down for a period of time ( like your W,A,S, and D keys for moving)

Looks decent, and is easy to clean out. 7/30/2016 5:34:59 PM

Pros: It has decent aesthetics
Easy to clean with air since it has raised keys.

Cons: Didn't feel very comfortable for me
After 3 months it started getting a problem where it repeated t and a few other keys multiple times while typing.

Overall Review: Had to shelf the keyboard after the problem progressed further and take my old keyboard back out to use.

It has some good ideas. 7/26/2016 10:57:23 AM

Pros: I kinda liked the idea of the FPS palm rest. Also, the aluminum chassis...

Cons: Not a fan of the aluminum chassis as it turns out.. It makes the keys extra loud.

Overall Review: I had to send it back due to the noise but also because I couldn't look at it seriously after I realized it looked like it came off the set of the 70's TV show Space: 1999...

Shoddy manufacturing 5/27/2016 8:43:17 PM

Pros: -Pretty

Cons: -Top keys break after clicking a few times
-Keyboard stopped working (wouldn't leave boot mode) after I carried it in my backpack once. My other 3 keyboards never had issues before, not sure why the 600K did.
-Support less than useless

Overall Review: When I had my Corsair headphones break, they replaced them no questions asked. When my Asus laptop stopped working, they fixed it for me. When my Cougar keyboard broke after a month, they repeated the instruction manual to me then said tough luck. Guess which company I'm not going back to.

One of the best values out there 4/22/2016 11:39:19 AM

Pros: -Purchased on Newegg for under $70 on sale, a steal for any quality mechanical keyboard, much less one with genuine cherry keys, an aluminum chassis and a feature set like this keyboard.

-The wristrest is serviceable and the rubberized magnetic FPS attachment is a very nice touch. Only grip is that there aren't two of them to give the option of a symetrical and rubberized wristrest.

-This keyboard (with MX Red switches) is incredibly responsive for gaming and it may be placedo, but I could swear that the 1000hz polling rate (1 update per 1ms) and on board processor made a noticeable difference over my keyboards with standard polling rate 125hz (1 update per 8 ms) and no processor. As best I can tell, with the info I have, there is between an 8 and 20 ms speed difference between this keyboard and a mech with standard polling rate. That is a really small margin, and hardly reason to buy this keyboard by itself, but given that it is a dedicated gaming keyboard with virtually everything you could want (sans macro keys and full backlighting) for a very low price, there is no way I can give this anything less than 5 stars.

-Looks/Toughness. Nice build quality, aluminum. Raised keys mean easy cleaning. Not likely to break this bad boy any time soon.

-Plug and play. No software needed.

-Comes with stickers...yep, stickers with various Cougar logos. Gimmicky? Perhaps, but a nice touch and I've had a soft spot for stickers since kindergarten because...stickers.

Cons: Backlighting is adjustable brightness, but only in a single color (orange) and limited to just the WASD and arrow keys.
Volume control is inferior to scroll wheel as found on Logitech and Corsair mechs. Not a knock on this keyboard, but once you've had the convenience of a scroll wheel anything else feels inferior.

Overall Review: Found I preferred the short travel distance and tactile feedback of the MX Browns on my Logitech 710+ over the MX Reds on this board after only two weeks of use. This is a personal preference and not a reflection of the build quality or value of the keyboard.

Keycaps are a rather dense single shot ABS. No complaint there.

Overall a very outstanding keyboard for the price point I got it for. Even at a price point of $100, this is a pretty good value. I very much like Cougar's apparent design philosophy and styling and even though this keyboard is not my daily driver due to the Cherry MX Reds, I would definitely consider purchasing Cougar products in the future.

Great Product, excellent construction besides the cable 1/28/2016 3:57:09 PM

Pros: Real Cherry MX Switches
No Drivers Needed
Windows Keys lockout
N-Key rollover
(some) lighted keys

This keyboard really delivers when it works. The construction is top notch, it's a real solid keyboard that will last for a long time. (except possible the cable) You don't have to use both USB cables if you don't want to, only the one for the keyboard. (They're labelled)

The driverless N-Key rollover is accomplished by pretending to be multiple keyboards. In windows you will see multiple keyboards in the device manager. Here is the Linux kernel log when plugging it in:

Cons: Takes a while for windows to recognize the keyboard(s) when plugged in. Recognition is instant under Linux.

Mine seems to have come with a bad cable. It took me a while to figure this out, story below.

Occasionally the keyboard would stop functioning and all the lights, including the repeat setting light would go out. Pressing the lighting and repeat buttons would bring back the lights, but the keyboard would no longer function. This happened in both windows and Linux, on several different Dells and PC built with components from Newegg. All the aforementioned computers function normally with various other keyboards including dell, microsoft, and cherry branded keyboards. Plugging directly into the computers or using a powered hub did not change the behaviour. Under Linux, the log was filled with errors such as "device descriptor read/64, error -32" and "device not accepting address 33, error -71" which would end with the error "unable to enumerate USB device" I updated the firmware with the updater available on the Cougar web site, but it did not help. Eventually I finally figured out that I can cause the error by flexing the cable at one of the points where it was bent when packaged in the box.

Overall Review: Unfortunately I have taken the keyboard to Europe and thus can't practically RMA it with Newegg. I will attempt to contact Cougar for support. (Luckily they are located in Germany)

4 eggs, would have gotten 5, but it came with a bad cable. Hopefully this is not a common problem because otherwise this keyboard is eggselent!
