Our first contact with Cougar, the German manufacturer of PC cases and peripherals, was with the extravagant Challenger case back in 2012. The company was hesitantly taking their first steps into the North American market back then. Today, much has changed, with Cougar having a significant worldwide presence and a far larger selection of products.

A few months ago, we had a look at their 700K mechanical keyboard and 700M gaming mouse. Although their naming suggests that they are a set, these are sold individually and are the company's flagship gaming peripherals. True enough, their quality and performance is excellent but their price tag is hefty as well. Therefore, for those that do want to retain high quality standards but do not need quite as many features, Cougar released the 600K mechanical keyboard and the 600M gaming mouse. Both of these devices are based on the design of their high-end siblings but lack many of their advanced functions. Today we'll be taking a close look at them in this capsule review.

    Guys - when the G4 review? ;)

    Call me picky, but I think centi is supposed to be a small c, as in cm, and Newtons are definitely supposed to be a capital N, so shouldn't it be cN, not Cn?

    Yes to cN

    In other news, I guess the authors meant to write, in the conclusion: "The major issue here is that despite all those functionality reductions, the retail price of the Cougar 600K ***is not*** significantly lower than the full-featured 700K."

    Damn keyboards, eh?

    Nice one on the damn keyboard jest. And it's indeed rather sloppy to leave out a chunk of a sentence..

    But as for the content: seeing this keyboard is a bit of a disaster as it is, I expect the price will soon become more competitive as it's tossed in the 'last ones, no refunds' bargain bin.

    Hey guys! I just found this fancy device: www.indexmouse.com
    Seems to be a real game changer to me. It's a wireless finger mouse. You move the cursor just by pointing with your index finger. I definitely want one.
