Cougar raises the game



Cougar had released the Cougar 200K keyboard, a compact and durable device especially designed for gamers.

The 200K is a good choice of its segment due to its compact and durable design, which also offers a quality experience second to none in comparison to non-mechanical keyboards. Its anti-ghosting technology, implemented in the 19 keys that are vital for gaming, ensures perfect accuracy when gaming, and the implemented extra functions (media controls, brightness adjustment and more) are implemented in a non-intrusive way. This means the 200K is able to maintain the standard keyboard layout, altering it in only two keys, one for backlight control and another one to activate the secondary functions for keys.

Another extra specifically designed for gamers, the 200K allows to switch the functionality of the WASD keys and the direction keys, which is especially useful for left handed users or those gamers who might require adjustments in the keyboard layout. Finally, the possibility of adjusting the repeat rate will become helpful when facing games that require repeated key use.

The final touch comes from its durable and sturdy build: The 200K’s weight and its anti-slip rubber feet ensure it stays stable and gives it a quality feel that sets it apart from the light weight and instability of most membrane and scissor switch keyboards of the market.

All those features come packed in an elegant design in line with the high standards Cougar sets for its products, with a hairline style surface and an elegant 7 colour backlight both for the keys and for the front of the keyboard that can be controlled through the dedicated backlight key. This design also includes an option to, through a key combination, activate the breathing effect of its backlight, creating an impressive visual effect. Cougar 200K has already been acclaimed by pro gamers.
