We recently took a look at the COUGAR 600K mechanical gaming keyboard and now we've got it's little brother in the shop - the 500K gaming keyboard. The 500K is similar to the 600K in looks and layout but where the 600K lacks in software controls and full backlighting the 500K shines with the exception of the use of a membrane keyboard instead of mechanical switches. COUGAR was kind enough to send us one to check out for you guys so let's take a look at it now.
Gigabyte isn't a name your normally associate with peripherals. When you think Gigabyte you typically think motherboards and graphics cards right?

This mouse was designed by the winner of the 2013 Gigabyte Mouse Design Competition. They sent us one to check out so let's get to it!
Gaming keyboards are everywhere these days. Membrane switches, mechanical switches, no backlighting, partial backlighting, full-color backlighting, selectable backlighting, software enhancements, etc. The list goes on.

No fancy software, mechanical switches, brushed aluminum main body and modest single-color backlighting. What is this monstrosity you ask? Well my friends the answer is the COUGAR 600K mechanical gaming keyboard. COUGAR was kind enough to send us one to check out so let's get to it!
