Consumer review (newegg.com)

So far so good, with some setup quirks

 

Others have stated that the software installation can brick this thing, and I thought I'd done it myself. I plugged in both a 700K (this keyboard) and 700M (their equivalent mouse) at the same time and booted up. While both worked right off of boot and...

Mechanical keys ; Minimalist top design (easy clean beneath) ; Lighting ; Programmability / macro / modes ; Aluminum main structure ; Wrist wrest (ha ha) but removable if desired ; I like the 'aggressive' angular stealth styling, definitely a matter of...

Software setup is atrocious at first, as others have mentioned ; Backlighting is single color, and intensity stepping is a little bit obvious (could use smoother gradients) on 'breathing' modes ; Could use some more programmability in lighting...

use for windows only

 

I would absolutely keep this keyboard if id didn't lock up. This keyboard is great if you only use windows and never intend to play around in your BIOS/UEFI.

Great keyboard, in windows. great for typing and the macro software works well

no linux compatibility. Many companies don't support linux, and that's absolutely OK; generally their keyboards still function as basic keyboards, you just can't use the macro software. This keyboard however locks up completely when you touch a...

COUGAR KBC700-1IS 700K Gaming Keyboard with Red Cherry MX Switches

 

Body is rock solid. doesn't slide around like most keyboards on my desk. not because it's heavy, But because of the the rubber feet and pads. Lots of settings to play with make it very versatile. 3 different screensaver functions as the call them for...

Heavy duty construction, Solid feeling keys. takes me back to the old 386 and 486 IBM keyboard days. I have mulled over alot of mechanical keyboards. And I wanted 3 things. Mechanical keys of course, Back-lit, and quality construction. Most are all...

WORST KEYBOARD EVER

 

This was a HUGE LET DOWN. Simply because the 700M gaming mouse IS AWESOME! Such a let down. I also had a 1000W PSU and was planning on later buying one of their cases but not after this. Customer support tried to help but couldn't and having to pay for...

USB port worked, looks NICE, loved the backlights are GORGEOUS

Only works long enough to log into windows, then nothing worked at all (except the built in USB port and backlights). Installation software was not included so i had to download that off the website and that didn't even work (extracted files then sat @...

COUGAR KBC700-1IS

 

One of the best gaming keyboards I have used. Purchased with the Cougar 700m gaming mouse and I couldn't be happier with this combo. So many options to go through but the 700k has really taken my FPS gaming to another level. The ergonomics and cherry...

Key leds cannot be changed from orange

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Wow!! so good!

 

All in all this keyboard is perfect! the way everything is layed out not to many keys but just the right amount. I give it a 9/10 but 4.5/5 here so I just rounded to 5 because of the Firmwire update you use on your mouse or keyboard with the UIX system...

Nice weight ; Smooth MX cherry red keys ; Very nice wrist wrest with the fps add on ; Thick cable ; Very cool led backlights ; UIX is very good with keyboard and mouse ; Perfect for my competitive CS:GO games

The firmwire can be tricky it needs to be explained better. So ill explain that in the other thoughts for you. =)

I normally go for cheap, but...

 

Quality product. Highly recommend. I would be cautious with installing the UIX software. I don't know how widespread the problem is as of now.

I'll start by saying that I am thoroughly pleased with this keyboard and that it performs to my expectations. The lighting features are nice and the keyboard has nice solid-build feeling to it. The keystrokes are smooth and the keys are firm. The Macro...

None besides some buggy software, which should be easy enough to fix

Keyboard

 

I bought this as a package deal with mouse. They complement each other well! So far I like this keyboard a lot! Plenty of programing options and the keyboard feels and looks great! I'm a hard core gamer. Works great so far for that purpose. So far I'm...

Light show is awesome. Well built and really looks nice. Keys are nice and snappy. The hand rest is awesome and removable. Programing is easy and straight forward. Plenty of macro buttons. USB, Mic, and headphone connectors on back of keyboard are very...

Wish It had a option to change color of lights
