The market is awash with identikit mice, with every iteration less distinguishable from the last. That absolutely can't be an accusation labelled at Cougar's 700M. For a company who are more famous for their PSUs to knock it out of the park with their first high end gaming mouse, and to do so with an unconventional design, was a searing bright spot. It might look like it's so pared back that is is uncomfortable, but actually everything is where you would place it, and the build quality is sublime thanks to the alloy spine. Spot on.
Gaming mice with more than the regular amount of buttons, four and the scroll wheel, are becoming more common as manufacturers seek to balance the multi button arrangements of console controllers on the PC. The best of these is the Roccat Tyon which managed to bring so many new features to the table that we didn't know where to begin. Analogue lever, clutch button, x-axis switch, it has it all. Combine that outstanding design with Omron switches and an Avago sensor and it's a recipe for greatness.
