Overall we are pretty impressed with what the Cougar 600M gaming mouse has to offer. It is clear that Cougar are serious about competing with the more established players in the gaming peripheral market like Razer and SteelSeries.
The aesthetic design of the 600M is fairly distinctive and is sure to appeal to a gaming audience, however we imagine many gamers would favour a model from a better known brand unless there is a reasonable cost saving. Still, the build quality of the mouse is on par with other premium gaming peripheral manufacturers.
In terms of sheer performance, the Cougar 600M has a lot to offer. Every aspect of the physical performance of the mouse feels premium and the impressive on-paper specification backs this up nicely. We are also impressed with the software configuration utility that Cougar supply with the mouse. This provides every configuration option we could reasonably ask for through a simple interface – the macro configuration options are particularly impressive.
At the time of writing, the Cougar 600M is not available from any major retailers in the UK, however it can be purchased through a number of importers for around £40. At this price it offers very good value for money and is sure to tempt some gamers away from more established gaming peripheral brands in the market.
