Cougar Revenger Mouse and Bunker Bungee Review
Starting with the Bunker Bungee, it's an excellent solution to the need to keep your cable free from friction and entanglement without taking up a big chunk of your desk. If you've never used one it would be easy to wonder exactly how much benefit they can have to your gaming, but if you have used one you'll understand. If you tire of your cable snagging on the desk edges, or resisting your movements or anything that is impeding your gaming capabilities then we heartily recommend a bungee to solve your issues, and the Cougar Bunker is an ingenious take on the genre.
The Revenger mouse continues Cougar's excellent range of gaming mice, barring one unfortunate design choice.
Starting with all the good parts it is difficult to look anywhere other than the Pixart 3360 sensor. It's high resolution optical sensor which brings incredible levels of accuracy to proceedings. A mouse is only as good as the sensor within and in the case of the Cougar Revenger it is very good indeed. Buttons are the near-standard Omron switches, and it seems that Cougar have used a slightly lighter actuation version. We're not even sure if such a thing exists in microswitch technology or whether it is the design of the mouse buttons themselves but they required a tiny bit less pressure to activate than most Omron switches we're used to. You get a very crisp, clean click. Lovely. The side buttons are also very nice to click and coupled to the high grip sides you are in full control at all times.
The software is fantastic with everything simply laid out - not as common as you'd imagine - and responsive. We always hold true to the "more control = better" mantra here at OC3D and the fact the macro editor supports both relative and absolute coordinates has to be loudly applauded. Why every mouse doesn't give this option is a bit of a strange one, but kudos to Cougar for implementing it.
The only negative has to be the trigger button behind the scroll wheel. It requires far too much pressure to be used reliably and you certainly can't bind it to anything you'll be using mid-game. We can't even see what benefits this system has over just putting a button there. It costs you accuracy, and anything that does that has to be counted as a negative.
However, if you look beyond that, or perhaps just ignore it, then the combination of a comfortable design, excellent lighting and a brilliant sensor still gives the Cougar Revenger our OC3D Gamers Choice Award. Just put a normal button at the top next time please Cougar.
