Cougar Vantar Scissor Gaming Keyboard Review



Scissor keyboards are hugely popular but rarely released, so today's review of the Cougar Vantar should be interesting.

I've been looking at this for ages. If my mech board dies it's definitely going to be my next keyboard. The price is awesome too, plus Cougar's stuff is made very well for the price.

I need to try a scissor switch keyboard. Im after a keyboard that has low travel and doesnt take much force to press the keys down. Im a big fan of cougar products.

I really like my Cougar mouse so if the board is as good it should be a nice item

Everything Lepa/Lepatek make is nicely put together. I've had their fans and a couple of other bits so I know how well made they are.

The noise of my mech board really does do my head in sometimes.

I tried using a chiclet gaming keyboard once. It was a pleasant experience for gaming (although a keyboard without macro keys and dedicated media buttons is not for me), but it wasn't a very good typing experience. But that might have been due to it's size. The keyboard in question was Redragon Karura 502, and it's really huge. This one looks much smaller so typing might be OK.

I only realised yesterday that this is not the keyboard I've had my eye on. I don't like chiclet keys on a big board I can't type with it.

That's what I have my eye on.
