It seems like everyone makes a mouse, throw a billion buttons on it, throw some DPI and a bunch of gimmicks on it and it’s good right… wrong. Many times, these mice are clones, look and feel like every other but many don’t care about the things that mater, but it seems that Cougar does. Cougar has been around for a while now and they have been making keyboard and mice for almost as long. With that said, I bring you my review on their newest mouse, the Cougar Revenger 12,000 DPI Ultimate Optical Gaming Mouse.

Nice specs, and the box looks nice, let’s tear it open and see what’s inside.
OK, before we get into the mouse itself, let’s go over the other things in the box first.
The first thing we see is the Users Manual. It’s a basic manual, but it has some good info in it.
One side goes over the default button assignment, features and specifications.
The other, goes over where to download Cougars UIX software, Installation procedures, Warranty information, Disclaimers and Legal Notices.
One very important thing they mention on this side as well, “Please do not directly look into the optical beam!”. Be careful with this, and yeah I giggled a little.
The mouse also comes with these 4 stickers. 3 of the stickers look like guitar pics, and then one is a rectangular logo on the top right hand corner. Sadly, the Dragonblogger logo is not an included logo.
That’s about it for the extra’s, now let’s check it out the mouse itself, the Cougar Revenger.
I have spent many years in the PC boutique name space as Product Development Engineer for Alienware and later Dell through Alienware’s acquisition and finally Velocity Micro. During these years I spent my time developing new configurations, products and technologies with companies such as AMD, Asus, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA and more. The Arts, Gaming, New & Old technologies drive my interests and passion. Now as my day job, I am an IT Manager but doing reviews on my time and my dime.
