Posted October 23, 2014 by Sandy Bruce in Peripherals


Release Date: Now
Price at time of Review: Cougar 700M $69.99 Speed/Control Mouse pad up to $19.99


Comfort, customization, weight adjustment, palm rest, rapid fire and 45 degree button, accurate movement, price


Speed-L was too large for my desk. LEDs could be brighter
It would be hard for me not to buy one. Great features, customizable comfort, easy configuration, topped off with a price that beats most comparable products. Separate or as a pair, the Cougar Speed/Control Mouse Pad and 700M gaming mouse set the stage for a successful run in the peripherals market.

Cougar is known for making exotic looking cases, performance chassis fans and the color “orange”. They’ve also been working on expanding to other product sectors over the last few years; We even saw them release a line of power supplies that was generally well received. Hoping to expand on that success, we are now witnessing Cougar reach into the very competitive “gaming peripherals” market. As eSports continues to pick up momentum and followers, hardcore gaming itself is rising from parent’s basements to being broadcast to millions across the globe. As a result, each day new gamers are born into this growing market, and Cougar is looking to “pounce” on this potential revenue stream (Editor’s Note: I see what you did there… -Mike). Cougar sent us the 700M Gaming Mouse and the Cougar Mouse Pad Speed, their latest enthusiast gaming products, to take a look at. We’re going to see if Cougar has what it takes to survive in this tough market, or if they could end up on the “endangered products” list. First, a few words about Cougar:



COUGAR was started in Germany in 2007 by a group of computer peripherals engineers who wanted to design with passion. We established a professional team, adhered to the design philosophy of technology centered on human use and aesthetic perfection. These combinations lead to products that met the global demand for high-end professional gamers. COUGAR’s field testing of the chassis and power supplies constantly went beyond normal development to bring about a diversified line of gaming computer peripherals products and continues to this day. This enthusiasm and innovative spirit is a continuing source of vitality for COUGAR.

    Great review, but I still have to wonder if the pad is really that important. Do the advantages outweigh the use of “standard” pads?

      Will it make or break your entire gaming career? No. Not at all. Is it nice to have a mouse pad that makes movements a little easier for a few bucks more than a decent mouse pad from OfficeMAx? I say yes it is. Does it need to be this large? No way. This thing is huge!! Id stick with the medium.
