Cougar 550M Gaming Mouse

Many PC enthusiasts should be familiar with Cougar and their products. For those who haven’t heard of them yet, the company was founded during 2007 in Germany making computer peripherals. They have since branched into computer cases, power supplies, and computer fans under their parent corporation CompuCase and Cougar products are sold worldwide. Given the amount of time Cougar has been in business, it is our expectation that the 550M gaming mouse we are reviewing won’t disappoint.

It can be found at Newegg for $39.99 and has a warranty of one year.

    I just bought this mouse today and I love and hate it at the same time. The size, shape, buttons and features are all excellent. The sensor seems to be very accurate so far. The UIX software is very intuitive and easy to use. This mouse feels incredibly comfortable in the hand and I actually prefer the textured plastic grips to rubber ones. My only gripe is that this thing feels HEAVY. Hopefully I’ll get used to the weight but I think they’ve made a mistake is this regard.

    Love the fact they put “32bit ARM processor” in the specs… Considering all modern ARM designs are 32bit, and their Cortex M0 is dirt cheap, it’s like saying a car comes with power windows! Hell, I have servomotors using M0 cores!
