Price at time of Review: $79.99 for 500K and $139.99 for 600K on Newegg.com


Great Aesthetics, Solid Construction, Feature Packed


500K - Split Space Bar
Now that you have seen both keyboards, listen to our testing impressions and our nitpicks. We have to say that Cougar did a great job with both the 500K and 600K keyboards. They have a great selection for this very diverse market and we think they hit the right spots. With the 500K coming in a $79.99 making if a very affordable option and the 600K at $139.99 is a very honorable mention.

Pure Overclock just recently had the pleasure of reviewing Cougar’s flagship 700K Mechanical gaming keyboard. This keyboard received many accolades along with some of the highest awards from the industry for its beautiful aluminum construction and customized software. While the price tag is on the high side for the 700K model, some can justify spending that kind of money. We all know the term, “you get what you pay for,” but some of us are simply looking for the best bang for your buck. Plus, with the abundance of today’s gamers making comments like, “we don’t always use all the features” that are available on those more expensive keyboards, folks are looking for alternatives.

All is not lost. With Cougar’s well received launch of its first mechanical gaming keyboards, they have set out to really expand in this arena. They came up with a wide range of options from the very affordable to the very expensive. Cougar likely aiming to reach a wider audience and we don’t blame them for doing so. In our hands today, we have their newly developed 500K and 600K gaming keyboards, both of which have been designed for gamers, typists and priced for your average joe who can’t quite justify the 700K’s price tag.


So today, we get to put both these very affordable keyboards to the test to see how they match up with today’s competition and Cougar’s own 700K model.
