Cougar 450M Ambidextrous Optical Gaming Mouse Review

Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation




The packaging is typical for Cougar with the use of a black box and the product highlighted in the center. At the bottom of the front panel we are offered a list of seven essential features for the 450M, and to the right we see that this offers 16.8 million color choices, it uses the UIX system software, and of course as the image suggests, this is the Black Edition.





Under the company logo and product name, we see three pictures on this side panel. The first one is to denote the 1000Hz polling rate capability. The second shows that the Omron switches offer five million clicks each, and the lowest image indicates the ambidextrous design of the 450M.




On the back, we are shown there are three DPI stages backlit with different colors, side keys, a scroll wheel of gaming grade, a braided cable, anti-slip flanking, and again a mention of the color options for the pair of LEDs. Below the images we see that there is a full list of features offered in English and German, but for the nine other languages, they receive a condensed version.




The last side of the packaging is this thinner panel which offers the logo, product name, and an image of the 450M on the top half. The lower section of this panel offers a full list of specifications very similar to the one we covered previously.




Removing the inner packaging from the box shows that Cougar has wrapped the entire mouse with cardboard. Since the front of the box does not offer a flip open panel, it allows Cougar to protect the finish of this mouse from all angles so that it does not get damaged in transit.




Also placed inside of the box is a sheet of stickers to put on your case, or anywhere you see fit. The user manual unfolds to show us the default button assignments, features, and specifications on the front of it. Once it is flipped over, the manual informs us to go and download the UIX software, tells us how to connect the 450M, and then moves into what they cover within the one-year warranty offered with this mouse.
