Cougar 700M Black Edition Laser Gaming Mouse Review

When the UIX software is installed and opened, this is what you see first. Currently, we are in mode one; you can look at them like profiles. In the main section, each mode allows for individual control of the four DPI settings, polling rate, angle snapping, click speed, scroll speed, sniper DPI level, and the pointer speed.




If you are to click on the Game Profile Management above the mode section, this thin window appears over the top. This is where the profiles can be addressed to import previous game setups; this is also where you can make gaming or program related profiles that auto load when said program is started.




Moving down the left side, we exited the performance section, and have entered the key assignment section. This section shows the default layout that leaves the sniper button and that far left button on top with no function. To change functionality, or add some, just drag and drop from the right to the key on the left, and it will swap to what you drug there in basic mode.




In the same section, but now in advanced mode, we see the button options are all changed to DPI options in the main widow, but at the top there is a dropdown menu that provides even more options to assign the mouse buttons to, and this is where you would work Cougar Fusion if we had a Cougar keyboard or headset.




Clicking on the Macro tab brings this up in the right side pane. First, you need to assign it to a group. Once that is done, you would click on the New Macro, or import button to bring one previously made to the 700M. If you choose New Macro, a whole other window opens with options to record mouse movements, time delays, and fixed and relative coordinates; there is even an option to record after the software is exited.




To allow each user to suit the 700M to their home environment, or just something else to play with on the 700M, is the multitude of color options that can be used for the front facing LED on this mouse. There modes include breathing, full LED, and the option to turn it off. To pick a color, you can click on the color wheel, pick one of the presets along the bottom, or enter the RGB code numbers, and finely tune your choice.
