Cougar Attack X3 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation




The front of the packaging offers us the company logo, to the left, a large image of the keyboard across the middle, and to the right, we see it is a Cherry MX based offering and that Cougar is a German company in the top portion. Near the bottom we are given the Attack X3 mechanical gaming keyboard identification, while to the right of that Cougar offers a list of seven features, and icons of three more important ones.





On one of the longer sides of the packaging, we see that Cougar offers site addresses to find out more or follow them on social media, the system requirements, and package contents. To the right of this, we see four boxes above the four switch type options, and with a round orange sticker, it is denoted that this sample is equipped with Cherry MX blue switches.




This shorter side panel offers us the logo and company name, as well as the full product name before we get to the small image of the Attack X3 with the company address below it, to the right.




The other long side of the box offers the logo and product naming off to the left of what we show here. What we have closed in on is the image of the Attack X3 followed by the specifications we covered on the previous page. Off to the right of this is a pair of QR codes, one leading to the product page, while the other leads to their Facebook page.




The second smaller panel offers all of the same information we saw on its opposing panel, but this time, there is a much larger image of the product, and the information provided has been moved around a bit.




As we move to the back of the box, we see it is sealed with anti-tamper stickers at the top, while the bulk of the panel is used to display as much information as possible. To the left, we find the keyboard with all of the secondary functions addressed, and to the right are eight images covering the features not shown in that image. The bottom then offers a list of features, which is repeated a total of twelve times to cover all of their markets.




After slicing through the stickers, we opened the box to find the Attack X3 wrapped in plastic, and backward from most other keyboards. Aside from the keyboard, we find a thicker section near the front hiding the cabling, and under the board is the literature for the Attack X3.




The literature we mentioned comes in the form of this smaller user manual. Inside of this fold out pamphlet, we found features listed, and image of the keyboard with all of its key layout extras explained. On the back, we are given a brief tutorial on the UIX software, how to install this device, and it even addresses the terms of the one-year warranty.
