COUGAR 700M Aluminium Gaming Mouse Review

COUGAR 700M Aluminium Gaming Mouse

COUGAR was established in 2007 by a group of PC hardware enthusiasts in Germany, who wanted more than the typical PC peripherals, so they established a team to create gaming peripherals of the highest quality and aesthetics. They started with PC cases and PSUs and have since moved to gaming mice and keyboards.

They started out with the COUGAR 200M and 600M gaming mice, which are conventional designs. The new COUGAR 700M changes that with a new innovative design that won the iF Product Design Award for 2014 - a tremendous achievement for such a young company.

They accomplished this by thinking outside the box. Instead of creating another variation of the typical mouse, they created the COUGAR 700M around a folded aluminium framing structure that is not only more rigid but also much lighter at just 110 g. The result was a futuristic-looking mouse that is truly a sight to behold.

But how does it feel in the hand? Can it perform as well as it looks? That's what we are going to examine today in our review of the COUGAR 700M aluminium gaming mouse. Let's check it out!

Our Review System

Tech ARP is committed to developing new ways to improve your experience with us. As part of our continuous efforts to improve the value of our reviews to you, we are implementing a multi-tier review system.

This review system is designed to allow you to quickly receive information on the latest hardware or software. This new system also allows you to quickly get the gist of the review without reading through it. This can be very useful, especially in situations where you need to make a quick purchase decision.

In this new system, we start with a Product Overview whenever a company sends us a press release about their latest product. We shift through extraneous PR-talk to create a straightforward summary of the product's features as well as specifications. This allows you to quickly find out all the pertinent details about the product, without reading through official press releases.

When we receive the product for review, we will quickly take photos of it and create a Pictorial Review. The purpose of a pictorial review is to allow you, the reader, to quickly examine the product visually. It may help you make better purchase decisions, especially if you cannot wait for the full review.

After thorough testing, we will post a Comprehensive Review of the product. This adds on to the pictorial review with comprehensive test results and our final conclusion on the product.

But no matter whether you are reading a Pictorial Review or a Comprehensive Review, you can always read the summary of the review as well as examine the product's specifications right on the first page. In all our new reviews, we will maintain the first page as a Product Overview page. If the product is listed in PriceGrabber, you can also check out the lowest price online.

We hope this new review system will make your experience a lot more enjoyable and informative!
