COUGAR 200K budget gaming keyboard launches in South Africa

After roaming the international wilderness for a good while, the German gaming peripheral company COUGAR has finally brought its 200K budget gaming keyboard to South Africa.

For the most part, it’s a rather sleek-looking keyboard and looks a good deal more expensive than its fairly modest R377 price tag.

Features include COUGAR’s scissor switch technology that links the key caps to the business end of the board. The company’s claiming that it offers a “quiet and faster” response and sports anti-ghosting of up to 19 keys.

As with most gaming peripherals nowadays, the 200K is also backlit with up to seven different colour profiles to choose from. COUGAR’s colours are orange and black though, so anything other than that looks particularly strange, but nevertheless, there’s that option should a consumer feel the need to tinker.

The backlight, like the much more expensive 700M gaming mouse, can also breathe which is a nice, premium touch.

And finally it seems like peripheral companies are finally batting for lefties as well. The 200K’s directional buttons can be swopped with the WASD arrangement, making gaming feel more natural for left handers.

As per Gearburn tradition, stay tuned for a full review of the COUGAR 200K within the coming weeks.
