COUGAR 600M, the gaming mouse that squeaks

The Cougar 600M Gaming Mouse does well at adding functionality without going to the extremes some other models have. The sensor can be set up to 8200 DPI and you can also adjust the USB polling rate from 125Hz to 1000Hz, a nice feature for those who want to be able to have complete control over their input.  Those who love LEDs will like that the software allows you to toggle the lighting between 16.8 million colours as well as programming the eight buttons as single functions or macros.  How well does it game?  Check out the full review at Overclockers Club.

"The scroll wheel was an issue I only found from "longer" use, that I probably would not have noticed in a typical review testing time frame. After enough use, it started to squeak a bit, and in general make more noise. However, enough use later, and it's back to no squeak. It seems like it will be something that comes and goes. It still works, and that is most important."

Im sorry that the wheel squeaked on your cougar 600M mouse. This issue appears to be a quality control issue because a few of my users have complained about the same thing. Hopefully this issue can be fixed because it is an excellent mouse. Please follow me at

I have to say i have been using the same mouse for my PC gaming and i haven't had any issues with it as of yet. The only regret is its not compatible with my ps4 camera games .And that includes my kids using it for their game time 3 times a week, so it could just be an issue with the particular model you had. Hope your issue got resolved?
