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.
The Cougar 550M is a high-end gaming mouse featuring a 6400 DPI SDNS-3988 optical sensor, DPI switching, onboard memory, six fully programmable buttons, and two RGB lighting zones. It can be found at Newegg for $39.99 and has a warranty of one year. Though the mouse may look a bit like the Razer DeathAdder when viewed from above as shown on the front of the box, the two mice actually have very different shapes.
