Hybrid Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

COUGAR 450K brings you all the features you would expect from a high-end gaming keyboard. With highly comfortable hybrid mechanical switches, 450K provides the accurate tactile feedback of fully mechanical keyboards and durability far above other keyboards of its class while at the same time offering a superior level of comfort and less finger strain.

450K also sports impressive customization capabilities that include macros, remapping and the adjustment of several key settings of the keyboard. All this is managed through the incredibly user-friendly interface of COUGAR UIX. You can store your settings in the keyboard's on-board memory (with capacity for up to 3 Profiles) and use the three colour full backlight to distinguish them visually. All this and much more is waiting for you in this incredible gaming keyboard!

Highly Durable Splash-Resistant Design

The Keyboard That Survives Your Battles
In the heat of battle, you cannot always afford to be gentle. Fast movements are in order, and as the game advances, keystrokes become more and more violent. 450K can sustain intense gaming sessions, but it does something more. The most durable of mechanical keyboards will often die if an accident such as water being spilt over it. Not 450K. With its Splash-Proof design, COUGAR 450K allows you to focus on winning and stop worrying about anything else.

UIX + On-Board Storage

Macros. Remapping. Lots of Settings. Wherever you Go.
COUGAR 450K's support for UIX allows you to adjust the functionality of the keyboards' keys, define macros and modify many vital settings of the keyboard. All of this is done with a highly intuitive interface that is shared with compatible COUGAR mice, which means that after you get used to 450K using, for example, 450M will be easy and natural.

After configuring all the settings, 450K’s on-board memory will allow you to bring with you up to three configuration Profiles anywhere you go.
