Cougar 700M Review – Software

Cougar call their software UIX and when it is launched we are show a nice simple screen which allows us to set our DPI profiles, polling rate and angle snapping. There are also options for double click speed, scroll speed and pointer speed. Then over on the left we can set modes/profiles. Moving to the Key assignment screen we have the option to re-map all eight buttons and the scroll wheel to the functions we want (including macros). Finally there is the Lighting Control screen which allows us to set the colour of the LEDs along with choosing between fully on, off and breathing. Firmware updates are also possible with this mouse and the latest software can be found on Cougars site.

Cougar 700M Review – User Experience and Conclusion

Starting with the build quality and design of the 700M we have a well constructed mouse. The aluminium frame is incredibly sturdy and each section of the body is well attached to it, even the floating palm rest. Speaking of that palm rest, the non-slip version is without doubt the better of the two, we cant see any need to use the other. It would actually be better if Cougar included a second, larger rest instead of the default one. That would add an extra option for those with larger hands but otherwise the design is good with the variable weight being particularly useful. Elsewhere we like the textured sides and the mouse should be durable thanks to the protected cable and Omron switches.

Inside the mouse we have components which match much of the competition and the key specifications do the same. We had no issues with tracking and the mouse was responsive and accurate while feeling comfortable during many hours of use. We were also pleasantly surprised by the software provided. It is intuitive, responsive and has all the features we would need from a gaming mouse. Looking to the pad for a moment, it too impressed. It is thick enough to offer comfort when gaming and the finish is decent on both sides. The option of three sizes also means there should be something for everyone, just as the 2nd colour option on the mouse provides.

That brings us to value where the Cougar 700m retails for £70. That is competitive pricing for such a customisable mouse with decent software and excellent performance.

  1. “We had no issues with tracking and the mouse was responsive and accurate while feeling comfortable during many hours of use.”

    What style grip is this mouse designed for? Are the replaceable palm rests for palm grip and claw grip respectively like the G9/x? What size are your hands and what grip do you use? Can you swap profiles on the mouse itself or do you need to use software? How well does the Sport/Sniper button work or how does it compare to that of other mice like the Corsair M65

    Does the scroll wheel click sideways like most logitech mice? Did you run any accuracy tests to check for acceleration native to most/all laser sensors?

    • HI, i found myself using claw for the smaller attachment and palm for the larger one. Might vary from person to person, based on the height they set the area too. (I have average sized hands). From memory, as the mouse/software are not installed any more, the profiles can be changed using the mouse and the sniper button does exactly as you would expect. Cougar say it is angled for easier action but I didn’t find any significant benefit to the position/angle. No worse or better than expected. No side clicks. Tracking/accuracy etc comments were based on real world use over a couple of weeks.

  2. I think I am in love.
    I need to get one.
