COUGAR was founded to build and provide gamers with the best peripherals available and their latest product shows that. The new flagship gaming mouse from COUGAR is the 550M and it looks quite impressive. A smaller brother named the 500M with slightly lower specs is also on the way.
COUGAR’s 550M will be available in two colours, blue and black, giving the user the choice for a perfect match to other devices located on the gaming station.
There is no doubt that COUGAR has a lot of faith in this mouse as it introduces it like this: “This device is the result of years of continuous work with a single objective: creating the most perfect gaming mouse the world has ever seen.”
The new mouse has been designed in cooperation with several professional gaming teams to get just the right device for this field of work. The unique shape allows the user to sustain high levels of performance during long gaming sessions with a minimum amount of fatigue while the hardware allows precise reading and customization.
The 550M features the SDNS-3988 optical gaming sensor that provides 6400 DPI and it features a 1000 Hz polling rate for a fast response. You can adjust both of these as well as customize the buttons and record macros thanks to the COUGAR UIX software. Three profiles can be stored in the onboard memory with up to 21 functions.
There are two independent LED areas and each of them is customizable within the RGB scale and is done via the software.
The COUGAR 500M comes at a lower price, but with the same quality and shape. It is black or white (not pictured) and features a smaller 4000 DPI sensor and some “other different features”.
Availability is set for late July or Early August in most of the world. The price isn’t bad either for what you get, as the 550M has an MSRP of just 59 USD and the 500M $39 USD.
Overclockers UK works closely with COUGAR as we know and they’ve already listed the new COUGAR 550M in both colours. So you can get your pre-orders in already for just £41.99 and be one of the first to have one of these new gaming mice.
