Cougar 550M Gaming Mouse Review

Final Thoughts and Conclusion


This has been one of the most, if not the most comfortable mouse I have ever used, before this one it was the Logitech Hyperion Fury G402.  It fits my entire hand and leaves all of the buttons easily accessible.  The lighting option is a nice feature but of course is a bit gimmicky as you don’t really look at your mouse.  The adjustability of the mouse is incredible, you can change any and every option which is a great and you can even save them just in case your hard drives dies and you have to reinstall everything, it will stay within the onboard memory.

I usually don’t like installing software for keyboard or mice, but this one is great and can actually handle both the keyboard and mouse, you can find the Cougar Mechanical gaming Keyboard AttackX3-4IS I reviewed earlier here which I go over this software in depth as well.

With all this awesomeness, there is one HUGE drawback to this and a tiny one,


  • Has a braided USB cable
  • LED-lighted
  • 2 Lighting Zones
  • Offers 4 modes of lighting
    • Off, Full Lighted, Breathing and Cycle
  • Programmable Keys
  • Sturdy build quality
  • Powerful software
  • Decent DPI Resolution
  • VERY comfortable


  • No Apple Support
  • Priced too high


While this is a great mouse, comparing to what is out there it competes well, but not it in pricing.  All other aspects of this mouse are perfect, but pricing is a biggy for me and I try to be price sensitive for all.  I want more than anything to give this mouse a 5 out of 5, but the pricing deducts 1 entire point, I can only give it a 4 out of 5, but Highly Recommended.
