Cougar introduces its 230M and 250M, two new budget-class gaming mice with a suggested retail price of $19.99 and $29.99, respectively. Both models focus on delivering the bare basics, without too many fancy features that drive up the cost.
COUGAR announces today the arrival of a revolutionary pair of gaming mice to the market: 230M and 250M. These mice's significance comes not only from their specs or appearance, but also from the idea behind them: putting pro level gaming mice within everybody's grasp.
The new 230M and 250M offer a solution to every gamer, including both right and left handed users: Their ambidextrous design is highly comfortable for everybody. While their appearance and objective is similar, there are differences between both: 230M has been designed for purists who care mostly about the mouse's quality and accuracy, while 250M adds to that a broad functionality.
Both products share many features essential for gaming. Both have a 1000 Hz polling rate, which guarantees extremely low (1ms) response time, and their components are all of the highest quality, as shown for example in their OMRON Switches and gaming grade scroll wheel. Apart from that, they both sport extremely high quality sensors (3200 DPI for 230M, 4000 DPI for 250M) that allow the user to adjust the DPI levels on the fly (4 fixed levels for 230M, configurable DPI levels for 250M).
230M caters to purists who do not require any extra functionality apart from the essential DPI adjustment option. They care only about having an accurate and reliable sensor, the minimum response time and a good ergonomic design, and with 230M this is exactly what they get.
250M, on the other hand, includes a wide range of functions, all of them managed through the best gaming device management system on the market, COUGAR UIX. With 6 fully programmable buttons (including two distinctive “thumb paddle” buttons) and internal memory for up to 3 full configuration profiles, 250M allows the user to access up to 21 different functions.
These are, in essence, two gaming mice which come to give an excellent option to all those people who want an affordable gaming mouse. 250M's USA MSRP is 29.9 USD, 230M's USA MSRP is 19.9 USD.
