Cougar 700K Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

TweakTown Rating: 99%Manufacturer: Cougar





The outer packaging is really a sleeve that goes over a thick cardboard box, but the front of the sleeve shows a huge image of the 700K running down the middle. At the top, they offer the Cougar logo, and explain that this is an iF award winner. At the bottom, next to the 700K, we see a list of eight features, as well as notations for the UIX software and Fusion it offers.




This long, skinny panel would be the bottom in the last image, and off to the left is the cougar logo, and 700K naming. We found this end to be more important, as it shows the four switch options, and which of those is inside the box.




Even on the smaller ends of the box, they took the time to make sure the naming is on there. They were also sure to show off that keyboard, and the orange LED backlighting.




There is a ton to take in on the back of the package. At the left there is a view of the keyboard with all of the switch groups and important features marked out around it. To the right, we see a list of ten things worthy of explaining with an image, leaving the bottom for multi-lingual feature lists.




Cougar places some additional information on the other, longer side panel on the right end. There is a pair of QR codes for their Facebook and official website, the specifications, package contents, system requirements, and along with the serial number, we see this is a U.S. layout keyboard.




Inside of the box, you really cannot ask for better packaging. Cougar conceals the 700K in dense foam on all sides, and even has a pad glued to the lid to keep the 700K in one place through its travels. There is also a section cut out to hold the palm rest separately from the keyboard. The cable is tucked in the cardboard at the back. With all of this attention to detail here, the 700K could have fallen out of the truck a few times, and still arrived in perfect condition. Our sample certainly arrived in perfect condition.
