Everything to get a Gamer's Pulse Racing: The Cougar Vantar Gaming Keyboard in Detail

The Cougar Vantar focuses on the most essential and important functions needed by gamers. If technical frippery and superfluous bells and whistles are your thing, avert your gaze now. A speciality of this gaming keyboard lies in the scissor switches that enable an extremely flat build - and as a consequence - a pleasingly comfortable typing experience.

Moreover the keyboard offers extensive media control options intelligently distributed across the function buttons by means of the FN key. The Win-Lock key allows the Windows key to be deactivated to prevent accidental activation - and thereby a jarring kick to the desktop - whilst in the midst of online battle. For maximum customisability and individuality the WASD and arrow keys are switchable. Anti-ghosting is provided for up to 19 simultaneous key presses and rubberised feet come as standard.

Design and LED Lighting

Visually Cougar has kept the flat Vantar keyboard relatively simple. The input device comes in basic black, while conveying the impression of brushed aluminium. From the perspective of this model's lighting options, Cougar has provided several possibility for individual customisation as it comes with 8 possible colour (white, yellow, blue, orange, turquoise, green, violet, red) as well as 8 additional effects (Rainbow 1, Rainbow 2, Breathing, Wave, Constant, Rhythm, Customise, Ripple). The intensity of the illumination can be adjusted or completely deactivated. The Vantar is sure to take pride of place on any desk.

Quiet, light and bright!

Purchased this after looking at many RGB's components and keyboards, seeing the price tag, i was expecting a "meh" reaction, but really what you see in real life is mindblowing, no photos or videos do it justice!

I love the different colour settings (seem to be more than other RGB's expensive keyboards i have owned in the past!)

The keyboard is quiet and light to touch the keys, which again is amazing for gaming, typing you name it.

Two very small negatives to point out,
1) Keyboard letters and numbers are faded transparent, this makes it difficult to use without the lights being on.
2) The kick back legs are short, so this keyboard almost sits horizontal, won't affect the daily user, but maybe heavy gamers/typists.

All in all, its still 10/10 for what it offers, being a quiet, slim, light and lovely finished keyboard, this deserves to be in your RGB collection. (if only for the 100% LED's around the border!)

This keyboard is awesome. It is very quiet, well, much quieter than the normal keyboards I have been using for a while. The backlights work as stated. The keyboard seems to be well made. Aesthetically pleasing and sturdy.

Awards & Media Coverage

  • OC3D.NET Gamers Choice Award

    The Cougar Vantar is light, small, affordable, and up there with the very best scissor switch keyboards on the market. Indeed it's one of the few proper attempts at making a scissor switch keyboard that has RGB lighting and with a little refinement Cougar might corner the market whilst everyone else is busy making yet another tiny adjustment to the Cherry MX formula. If silent typing on a laptop style keyboard with some lighting options is your bag, little else comes close and we award it our OC3D Gamers Choice.
