Cougar 700M unboxing

Unboxing the COUGAR 700M Black Edition gaming mouse [Video]

There are few gaming peripherals that incite more unneeded fanboyism than the mouse. Glowing in an array of colours, with panels, palm rests and weights the gamer can obsessively tinker with, it’s probably the most personal part of a gaming rig too.

Now COUGAR, a German peripheral company relatively new to the scene, has launched yet another device gamers can argue about. It’s called the COUGAR 700M, and it’s now available in sunny South Africa.

Is it something to get excited about? Well, if you’re one for numbers you might want to sit down for this.

Boasting an on-board 32-bit ARM processor, 512KB RAM and a sensor that peaks at 8200DPI, it’s definitely one of the more heavily-engineered devices we’ve seen in a while. And it doesn’t quite stop there either. The COUGAR 700M sits on an aluminium frame, which is gorgeous to the touch, flaunts a polished black plastic finish, removable and height-adjustable palm rest and a mood or profile glow emitted from the front of the mouse. Add a braided cable and gold-plated USB plug to the package and we’re smitten.

But don’t just take that for an answer. Have a look at the unboxing and note just how intricate the box is.
