After downloading, installing, and an automatic flash of the devices firmware, we are then delivered to the main window of the UIX System software. In the right window, we find what is covered under the performance heading. There is only the polling rate adjustment, and while my German is non-existent, to the right is a repeat rate adjustment, while below it is a test for repeat rate speed, to see if it suits your needs.

The key assignment allows exactly what one would expect, the option to change key assignments. After we clicked on the H-key as an example, we are allowed to choose normal functionality, disable it, or customize the key, as in remapping or Macro use.

Switching over to the Macro tab at the top right of the window shows us the Macro options. Here you can group commands, make a new Macro, import, export, edit, delete, and copy them. While the options do not allow for time adjustments, time is recorded between commands.

The lighting control tab offers the ability to set the brightness of the LED panel, or put it into a breathing mode on the left half of the window. To the right you can select one of three color options, or by selecting the cycling arrow icon, it puts the panel into a mode where it rotates through red, green, and yellow backlighting.

As with all of the Cougar products, there is also this game profile management window. Here you can select the profile you wish to program, each with its own color of backlighting. You can insert an image for the profile pertaining to the game or application it is used for, and if you have had previous keyboards with profiles saved on the PC, you can import them and play around that way, or just create a new one to suit your needs.
