My favorite thing about the PC enthusiast community has to be the customization of one’s personal set up. However, like many other things, customization is very subjective. What I think looks good, the next person may not like it so much. But nothing is more subjective than people’s opinions on peripherals. In fact, it’s one of the reasons I tend to sway away from peripheral reviews. However, I’ve always had good luck with Cougar peripherals. So, when Cougar reached out asking us to take a look at the Cougar Surpassion RX wireless gaming mouse, I jumped on the opportunity.
The Surpassion RX is the wireless version of the original Surpassion Gaming mouse from Cougar. The Cougar Surpassion RX uses the PixArt PMW3330 sensor and OMRON gaming switches. Its lithium battery is charged via Micro-USB. The Surpassion RX weighs in at only 90 grams. So on paper, the Cougar Surpassion RX looks like a great mouse. In the past, I’ve personally steered clear of wireless mouses. It’s been several years since I’ve even tested a wireless mouse. Whether it was latency issues or just bad wireless communications, I’m not sure. But I seemed to always have bad luck with wireless mice. So, have advances in technology over the years improved wireless mouse technology? We tested the Cougar SurpassionRX for a solid month to answer that question.
