Cougar Attack X3 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

A Closer Look


First impressions of the X3 are very positive, it has a good weight to it and the appearance is certainly very nice. A mixture of matte black keys on a polished and brushed aluminium chassis, with a little bit of black trim at the top and bottom, not only does it look great, it also feels incredibly durable.

The font on the key caps is nice and large, which obviously makes them easier to read, but it also gives a larger percentage of the key cap for the LED lighting to shine through. Right at the top, you’ll find secondary functions on the F-keys, such as the profile memory selectors, and master lighting control.

Here you’ll find polling rate adjustments.

Finally, my personal favourites, the multimedia controls, as well as buttons to toggle between 6K and NK rollover.

There’s a full number pad on this keyboard, but just above it, you’ll also find some volume controls although it should be noted that these are the only non-mechanical switches on the keyboard.

The bottom left Windows key is gone, swapped out for an FN-shift key, allowing you quickly access the secondary functions on the F-keys.

There’s also a Windows lock function, helping you to avoid staring at your desktop wallpaper in the middle of a heated battle on your favourite game; no one likes accidentally minimising their game!

Around the back, a rather simple flat design, not that it matters much, of course, as you rarely see this side. There are two large and durable rubber grips at the front, as well as two durable feet with extra rubber grips. The combination of the weighted design and the rubber grips means the X3 stays firmly in place on your desktop, even when mashing at the keys.

There’s not really much to see around the back, just the central connection point for the USB cable.

The key caps are removable, making maintaining and cleaning the keyboard nice and easy; here you can see the Cherry MX Blue switches.

    It looks pretty good although I would like to see full RGB on the next Cougar keyboard. I have their 700K which has worked well for me so far and I’m happy to see they’ve dropped the idiotic ‘split’ spacebar from the previous versions on this model.
