COUGAR 700K Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Design awarded Cherry mechanical key switches with extra G-key, fully backlit, and an exposed brushed aluminium structure for increased durability. Comprehensively designed to meet MOBA and MMO gaming needs. N-Key Rollover in USB mode: the end of inaccurate input!
Aluminium Frame Structure
Both for achieving a better aesthetic design and for improving the product’s durability, the mechanical key modules are mounted over an exposed bent aluminium structure. Apart from being part of an award-winning design (COMPUTEX awards 2014, IF product design award 2014), this structure makes the keyboard sturdy and durable and gives you what every keyboard should give you: the true feeling of being in command.
6 Programmable G keys (5 on the left side of the keyboard and a sixth one to the right of the space bar) allow for quick access to a variety of functions. Fully configurable, all of them make your life easier by enabling you to access the functions you want without interfering with the standard keys of the keyboard.
Five keys on the left side of the keyboard, near the WASD keys for quick access without moving your hand, and a key just to the right of the space bar for thumb use. More keys, no extra hand movements.
Individual Key Backlight Setting
You can individually configure the backlight of all the keys, making sure the key backlight works exactly the way you need to. As for the brightness of the backlight, there are five levels for you to choose from. This function is very often used for the WASD keys, as well as for any relevant shortcuts you might want to keep always on sight.
On-the-fly Mode Switch
Three dedicated keys allow you to switch configuration Profiles instantly with a single movement, without getting out of the game. Thanks to 700K on-board memory and three internally stored configuration Profiles, you will be able to bring a massive amount of functions with you anywhere you go.
COUGAR UIX System
Set the functionality of all the keys, assign pictures to Profiles for graphical recognition, store macros and share them, all with a very convenient and intuitive interface. The 700K internal memory will then allow you to bring up to three full configuration profiles anywhere you go.

I’m not a 12-year-old gamer, I just appreciate good keyboards, and this had the basic features I was looking for, was fairly-priced, feels pretty good to type on, keys are decently-lit, etc.
The “programmability” is exasperating. The UIX software required to, for example, make the right-side of the split space bar function as a space bar is the most poorly-designed piece of software I think I’ve ever seen. Moreover, it fails to connect to the keyboard unless it’s re-installed every time. You heard that right.
Are those things deal-breakers? Actually, no. Once you get the thing properly-configured, you won’t be running that God-awful UIX software again, so...whatever. If a meteor came down and smashed the keyboard, I’d probably buy it again. Know what you’re getting, and it’s a decent product once you understand how to work around the initial frustrations of it.
Original review below: ___________________________________________________________
It's funny how the same issues that plagued macro keyboards years ago simply repeat; the misery lives on. The keyboard is mechanically okay. Doesn't feel like Cherry MX brown keys, but... Whatever. The issues have to do the macro/programmability. The keyboard has nearly 20 "extra" keys, but none of them for "re-set!" This bungle means, for example, that if you wish to re-set a profile, you have to "Press FN + M1/M2/M3 for 3 sec." WTF? All those keys? Just the FN and _one_ of the profile keys? What happens if you've re-mapped the FN key -- because it's located stupidly where it is -- to be the "Win" key; how do you then re-set that profile?!? ...!!! ...??? These guys need less 12-year-old-appealing design chops and better product/software UX designers. This thing, right now, is useless.
- High build quality
- Cherry MX Brown switches
This is definitely a high-quality keyboard. The keys are super responsive and the build quality is excellent.
Here's why I didn't like it:
- The Windows key is on the right side of the space bar, but not the left. That totally throws me off as I always use the left one.
- The space bar is split into two keys and only the left one works as a space bar. I had to go in and program the other key to also be a space bar. Regardless, my thumb hits the split in the middle almost every time I hit the space bar and I have to hit the space bar a second time.
Here's why I returned it:
I found that I would sometimes have to hit some of the keys more than once in order for the character to type. The keys that were impacted were the "L" key and the "2" key (not on the number pad).
The two big show stoppers were
1) The keys would often double (or triple) tap. So typing would llook sorrrt of llikee thhiss.
2) It would auto record macros. On multiple occasions a single key would auto-magically get assigned a macro based upon what I was currently typing. So the next time I would hit that key, the keyboard would suddenly start auto filling half a sentence that I had typed earlier. There is no way I was hitting the macro record key, because that sucker is way in the upper left beyond the F keys (and I would have to hit it twice, once to start the macro and once to finish).
As others have mentioned the software is wonky and not great. I also found it limited in options and not very user friendly. Some times changes would be saved, sometimes not.
I ended up returning the keyboard.
Their customer service is good for what it is. Good people, but seems like a small office. Email only, standard business hours. Have all your paperwork in order, then pay to ship it and wait a couple weeks for a replacement. Its what it is, not a knock on them, just not what I need. I honestly couldn't afford the shipping with the first keyboard. After I bought another I couldn't even be bothered to go through it all.
I swear I treat my products good, they're eye candy as much as a tool. These are just flimsier than even the cheapest keyboards, but they felt great for the 6 months they worked for me. I just expected at least a few years from a $130 keyboard. Maybe I'm naive.
