Here at Benchmark Reviews we have seen a lot of Cougar products come through as of late. Today we are proud to review something a little different, the Cougar 600K mechanical keyboard featuring Cherry MX Blue switches. There are quite a few things that make this keyboard unique and set it apart from it’s previous flagship keyboard, the Cougar 700K. The feature set alone from the 600K create a special synergy for typing purists that not only puts it in a class of its own, but definitely needs further examination.
The Cougar 600K encapsulates the primary core functions of a keyboard to such a point that the engineering and manufacturing process has become a form of art. The expression “less is more” comes to mind when using the 600K without sacrificing aspects aimed at the gaming segment. One of the most impressive features is that it manages to do all of this with no drivers: A true plug and play experience (for once).
