Great Keyboard for Great price when it was available 3/16/2019 8:18:43 AM

Pros: Its got plenty of colors, good coloring options, and matches items has good response on the keys as I type. its easy to clean aswell, and has great texture when it comes to the feel of the keyboard. I especially like the dark gunmetal color that is the basis for the keyboard.

Cons: RGB can be spotty at times, not looking full in color, but thats really only from certain angles.

Overall Review: Definitely is a great Keyboard, when it comes back into stock Its a recommended buy for all.

Nice quick and quiet touch 2/7/2019 3:30:00 PM

Pros: Nice light, quick and quiet touch. Not a deep stroke keyboard. Pretty fast. Lights up in 8 LED colors. I use it on gaming nights. No mechanical clacks. Not for heavy hands. Seems quite durable. Haven't pounded the board yet.

Cons: LED lighting is partial when looking at an angle. If you're like me and need to see the key tops, you need to be almost above the keys to see the full lighting of each letter/number. Only drawback.

Overall Review: For the price it's a very good buy. Thou in the future, I'd like to see the key tops better lit. I'd buy it again. It's a fun keyboard.

Awesome Keyboard that Won't Break the Bank! 7/13/2018 11:37:40 AM

Pros: Great design
Nice RGB features and options
Nice build quality

Cons: None

Overall Review: This is a nice step up from the other cougar keyboard that I have with RGB lighting. The effects are cool, it's easy to change them, and they work nicely with the design of the keyboard.
Another thing I like is that you get a decent gaming keyboard without the loud mechanical switches. The chiclet design is also nice.

Broken Key on Arrival 4/4/2018 12:44:34 PM

Pros: -Beautiful Lighting
-Quiet Keys
-Non-broken keys type well

Cons: -It arrived with a broken off " . del" key on the numpad
-According to cougars website, broken keys on arrival aren't a good reason to use the warranty and the FAQ for it suggests a replacement from retailer, as they don't carry replacement keys.

Overall Review: I will try to update this after a replacement is received, assuming the replacement works, and is intact, I would go ahead and give it a 5 off first impressions, can't speak to long term use, but a broken key on arrival isn't a good sign, hopefully it's a rare occurance, here's hoping!

Edit: The return looks good and seems to work fine, hopefully it lasts.

Functional, but disappointing. 2/9/2018 9:10:28 AM

Pros: -It works.
-It lights up, rgb and all.
-Everything works as advertised.
-Nice and heavy, but don't assume it's durable.

Cons: -As said, everything works as advertised, BUT with weak quality. Glad I didn't buy this for $40! ($27 sale)
-The letters on the keys are not very clear at all, you can see the lines where the plastic was poured into a mould, like a toy from the dollar store.
-Yeah it's driverless. I don't like driverless. I like drivers, because that means functionality. My PC has a color scheme that I like to keep and that's blue/white. You can 'customize', but the trade-off is that the lights are static, so no waves or other cool functions if you want to use your favorite colors. It's just still.

Overall Review: All in all, this keyboard almost made it. It really did come close. But for a budget keyboard, especially for its MSRP, I would recommend so many other rgb (and even mechanical if you dig that) keyboards over this. Sorry Cougar, but you failed to impress.

Manufacturer Response:
Thank you for sharing your experience. We are happy to hear that everything works as advertised, and would like to provide you with some feedback regarding the issues you mention.

First, regarding the driver-free nature of the product, it is a design choice intended to ease installation and usage; Vantar is specifically targeted to gamers who want a reliable and comfortable experience with gaming aesthetics and some useful functions. You are completely correct in describing its build as nice and heavy; Vantar is built to be an attractive and durable companion for gamers. If you are interested in extended functionality through drivers, other products such as Attack X3 RGB and similar models will provide full customization through COUGAR's UIX system.

As for the readability of the keycaps, there is a normal amount of variability between different keys, but this again is a design choice to achieve a certain aesthetic effect and under no circumstance should make the letters on the keycap unreadable. If this is the case, that most likely means an unusual pattern of distribution of the keycap's plastic for that specific unit. We stand firm in our commitment that every single COUGAR customer should get a satisfactory experience; if you think this affects your ability to enjoy Vantar, please contact rma@compucaseusa.com, and our team will provide a solution.

Great value 2/8/2018 8:03:24 PM

Pros: Looks very stylish and definitely stands out. I hated the branding on the space bar/above the arrow keys on the pictures, but seeing it in picture, it's really barely even there when i'm using it.

Cons: Rythm lighting feature doesn't work for me
