Today we will be going over the COUGAR Minos X3 gaming mouse. The Minos X3 was specifically designed with the needs of pro eSports players in mind. With it’s pro-grad PMW3310 optical sensor, 6 buttons and on-the-fly DPI and polling rates, this mouse is good to go right out of the box! I was personally looking forward to reviewing another mouse from COUGAR, since I was so very well impressed by the Revenger, I was curious to see how the two mice would differ from one another.
Real Gear for Real Gamers
Created in 2007 by a group of engineers, COUGAR has been devoted since its first day to a single objective: to endow every single product with a superb quality, a rich functionality and a distinctive design. This aspiration moved us during our first years in the PC case, PSU and fan market. Our efforts bore their fruits in the form of user satisfaction, many praising reviews and prestigious design awards such as the 2010 design & innovation award, organized by iF at Computex Taipei 2010.
After several years of success with our first products, we decided to enter the gaming gear market. The reason for this was our long-term dissatisfaction with the state of things in the areas of gaming mice, keyboards and headsets. The market was flooded with poor quality products, gimmicks presented as “gaming functions” and either boring or childish designs. Since all of us are gamers, it was hard for us not to feel that we had not only the power, but also the duty to do something about it.

Our engineers did not achieve this alone. In order to be able to completely fulfill gamers’ needs, COUGAR works regularly with pro gamers that act as partners and participate in every single stage of the product development process. This guarantees that our products help gamers achieve higher levels of performance, and get the highest value from their gaming gear.
In less than ten years, COUGAR has grown from its birthplace in Germany to become one of the global leaders in gaming hardware, managing to become a success in markets like the USA, Russia, Australia, Thailand, Korea, Japan, Brazil and many more, and bringing great value gamers all around the world. We won’t stop until COUGAR products become the new standard for gaming gear, never forgetting that we do real gear for real gamers.
Now let’s see what the specs are for this gaming mouse!
