Cougar 450K Gaming Keyboard Review

Cougar has really impressed us with their line of gaming peripherals. We’ve already taken a look at the high-end 700K, 600K, and 500K gaming keyboard from Cougar. I actually still use the 600K as my main keyboard on my desktop. Today we will be taking a look at a very budget friendly ($59) keyboard in Cougar’s 450K. This gaming keyboard features Cougar’s own hybrid mechanical switches, which are designed to give you the same tactile feedback as mechanical switches, but with enhanced durability. The keyboard also features 3-color backlighting, 10 programmable keys, a splash-proof design and much more! Is this the gaming gaming keyboard you are looking for? Read on as we find out!

Special thanks to Cougar for providing us with the 450K Gaming Keyboard to review.


The Cougar 450K comes in Cougar’s typical retail packaging, which is always very informative. On the front we have a photo of the keyboard in action and it lets us know some of the main features.
