Cougar 600M Gaming Mouse Orange Edition Review
Published: 17th February 2015 | Source: Cougar | Price: |
As there are two different versions of the 600M, black and orange, then it makes sense for the packaging to be clear about which model you're buying, and if you think it looks bright on the box then, if I can borrow the Bachman-Turner Overdrive, you ain't seen nothing yet.
There is no doubt that the "Orange Edition" name is well earned. This is fearsomely orange. Oddly the photo from underneath seems more like the Telecom firm colour than safety orange, but it definitely is the colour it is in all the other photos. No half measures here by Cougar in the vividness of the colour.
The left mouse button also contains the DPI indicator. The scroll wheel is, like all the other plastics on the 600M, a deep piano black. Behind the scroll wheel is the DPI adjuster itself, which can be programmed if you so wish.
As a right handed mouse the right hand side is empty, but the left has the back/forward buttons which are such a part of the modern gaming mouse design that mice look odd without them. Beneath that is a button we're starting to see more often in recent times, the Sniper button. This acts as a clutch, toggling down to a DPI of your choice, or can be assigned to a function of your choosing.
The cable is both long and braided, with a Cougar logo on the USB to help you determine which black USB plug is which when fiddling in the back of your case.
