Cougar 450M Ambidextrous Optical Gaming Mouse Review

Cougar 450M Gaming Mouse




As we look at the left side of the 450M, we see a mix of shiny black plastic used on the front, top, and back of the mouse, with a large anti-slip grip area placed in the middle. It is also hard to miss the lime green accents of the buttons, the NVIDIA logo-like shape to the right of them, and the lower section that also carries this color lower into the design.





At the heel of this mouse, we can see the green plastic to either side of the Cougar name and logo placed on the shiny black plastic. As the sides did, around the back that lime green is again visible at the bottom here too.




The right side of the 450M is a mirror image of what we covered when we looked at the left side. This is because it is an ambidextrous design, and we are now up to a total of four buttons so far that the 450M delivers.




At the front of the 450M, we find the center section is opened to allow for the scroll wheel and cable to emerge from the mouse. There is a gray part that surrounds both of them and does help to break up the green on black plastic parts that we have seen so far. We also see that the main buttons are smooth and rounded, and with them, as well as the click function of the scroll wheel, we are now up to seven buttons.




The eighth and final button offered in the 450M is found at the top. As the letters on the button denote, its default function is to swap between the DPI settings, but along with all of the other buttons, it too can be reprogrammed.




We do find 1.8 meters of braided cable, but no Velcro strap this time either. As the cable ends, the plastic connection cover offers the Cougar name on it, and as for the USB 2.0 connection, it is gold plated for this device.




The entire bottom section of the 450M is made from lime green plastic, and it offers three feet, two at the front, and one larger one at the back. The bits of black on the sides are part of the top cover. The eye for the optical sensor is centered in this mouse and is surrounded with the product sticker that offers the serial number as well.
