We have been checking out Cougar’s gaming keyboards over the past couple of months. We first took a look at the high-end 700K, then moved down to the more minimalistic 600K, and today we will be taking a look at the more entry-level 500K. This keyboard is actually quite a lot like the higher-end 700K, it has the same 6 programmable G-keys, N-key rollover, a 32-bit ARM processor and on-board memory, the FPS palm rest and more. What it does lack is the aluminum design and mechanical key switches. So if you are not a fan of mechanical key switches this could be the keyboard for you. This has to be one of the more fully-featured non-mechanical keyboards that we have seen lately. Let’s jump in and see what this keyboard can do!
Special thanks to Cougar for providing us with the 500K Gaming Keyboard to review.
The 500K comes in a very nice retail package. On the front it has a full photo of the keyboard and lists some of the main features.
Flipping the box over there is a full overview of the keyboard itself and it goes into detail on many of the features.
Opening the box up inside you will find the 500K gaming keyboard, user’s manual and a set of Cougar stickers.
For a full unboxing and overview of the 500K gaming keyboard be sure to check out our video below.
