COUGAR Celebrates First Year in Gaming Peripherals and Vows to Continue

COUGAR entered the DIY PC market about five years ago, but they have only been making peripheral devices for the last year. The decision to enter this market was sparked by feedback from users who were frustrated with the current offering, especially on the software part.

COUGAR thought, this is something we can do something about and got working on their own devices. The 700M gaming mouse and 700K mechanical keyboard did very well in their reviews and scored great awards all around. The hardware is just one part of it all and they also released the UIX software along with it, allowing the user to take back control of his input devices with a user-friendly interface.

COUGAR released more products such as the 500 and 600 series of mice and keyboard, and they vowed to continue that with even more future products for the gaming minded user as well as to continue their sponsorships for eSport teams.

New planned products include mice for all sort of gamers, both left and right handed users, but also products such as headphones and water resistant gaming keyboards. We will make sure to keep you updated on their new products as they get released and as well as reviews whenever possible.

ADATA Launches HD710A Durable USB 3.0 External HDD for Mac

ADATA just announced the launch of the HD710A waterproof, dustproof, and shock-resistant USB 3.0 external hard drive for Apple users on the go and with a rugged lifestyle. This new ultra-durable external hard drive is designed especially for MacBooks, but there shouldn’t be anything preventing you from using it on other systems. It comes with storage capacities of 1TB or 2TB, enough to store all your precious moments in the most secure way possible. The white design will let it match your Apple equipment and the drive fully supports Time Machine for backups, but also comes with ADATA’s on-the-go Mac software to enhance the functionality.

The triple-layer construction incorporates exceptionally elastic silicone material to provide great shock absorption from all angles. It has passed the MIL-STD-810G 516.6 military-grade shock-resistant test as well as the stringent IP68 test against water and dust. The drive can survive for up to 60 minutes in up to 1.5 meter of water; it should take a lot to kill this drive.

The USB 3.0 cable easily wraps around the drive itself when not in use, practical for storage on the road as you won’t have to search your bags for the cable. It’s always where the drive is. The low weight of just 220g further enhances the portability and the drive is backed by a three-year warranty.

No word on pricing or direct availability yet, but the black PC version goes for $69.99 and $126.48 on Amazon.
