Cougar 700M Black Edition Laser Gaming Mouse Review

Cougar Speed Large Gaming Mouse Pad




Along with the 700M, we were sent the Cougar Speed Large, 450mm by 400mm, gaming mouse pad to try out. It comes in this very tall, but slender cardboard box that is mostly black, and highlights the orange used throughout.




This side of the packaging offers a hole in it to feel the material used on top of the pad, discusses the base design and material, tells us the pad is 4mm thick, and ends with a tiny specifications chart.




This side shows us how much room is afforded on this mouse pad, and then in small text covers the texture of the top, the design of the bottom, its optimized thickness, and that it is available in three sizes. This information repeats seven more times in various languages.




This panel covers the naming off to the left. Moving across the middle, we see all three sizes next to each other for comparison, and to the right is the website information, along with a QR code to take you to Cougar World, or their Facebook page.




We chose the area next to the applied name and logo to show a close up of the cloth, and its weave. While the cloth appears very tightly woven, the feel to the pad is quite rough, to give the high DPI sensor in our 700M the best chance for accuracy, as sometimes smooth pads leave something to be desired in the upper DPI range.




Keeping with the Cougar colors, not only is part of the naming on the top orange, but the 4mm of dense foam used under the cloth is also bright orange. There is a herringbone pattern found on the bottom of the foam with thousands of little pads to help grip the surface the mouse pad rests upon.




Stepping back, with the 700M on top of the Speed Large mouse pad, we can see there is more than enough room to move around the pad freely, eliminating eighty percent of the times needed to lift and reposition the mouse. This allows for expansive movements, and more freedom than a lot of other pads we have seen supplied with mice.
