Gaming Convenience

Using the FN shortcut key combined with the F1-12 row, you can access multimedia playback settings, your email, calculator, and more.

COUGAR Vantar Reviews

Great affordable keyboard

By Kenneth
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-09

Requirements for my latest use case were a reasonably priced, sturdy, quiet, USB keyboard. This keyboard matched those requirements perfectly. A YouTube review mentioned the back-lighting is not perfectly visible at certain angles. This is noticeable, but not a show stopper. I'm a touch typist and back-lighting is not a requirement for me. I've been using the keyboard for about one week. It feels sturdy, has a nice feel, and is quiet. I would definitely recommend the product.

It works well, the keys are precise and colours are nice. The only little problem is that the letters are barely visible despite the underlying light.

Didn't even last a year, the keys fall off and the cord and connection is failing. Don't waste your money.

Not even a year old and they keys are popping off. Not very useful if i can't use a key on a keyboard.

Cheap. Ergonomic. Beautiful.

Call me a casual gamer, but I actually prefer scissor keys to the old-fashioned mechanical types. When I bought this, I didn't read the description, and didn't expect anything more than a glowing rainbow keyboard. But it just so happens that the Vantar comes with a few extra bells and whistles that are actually pretty fun and useful. First, the LEDs can be animated with a decent amount of control. Second, the WASD, and arrow keys can be swapped for easier left-handed reach. Also, the Windows meta key can be disabled (to prevent accidental home-screening). I still don't really understand anti-ghosting technology. And I don't really care. This keyboard hasn't hindered me from 360 no-scoping noobs in HALO Infinite. If it breaks, I'll buy another.

Great scissors based keyboard. Maybe one issue characters too dim if no light mode is selected. Overall just what I was looking for.

Is there a Mac version, or any other company that has low profile Mac keyboards that glow like this, or is there a button replacement?
Asked by: Stephyn
You can still use it on a Mac, it will recognize it as a generic keyboard and ask you to map it when you plug it in. It will just have the Windows keys which is not ideal. We carry two other models with a low profile form factor.

Would this work with Chromebook Chrome OS?
Asked by: Hope
Yes You can use a standard PC keyboard with your Chromebook. This means that any USB keyboard will work with a Chromebook just as it would on a Windows or mac. Just like adding a wireless Chromebook mouse, you can plug in or connect any USB or Bluetooth keyboard to your Chromebook and it will work fine for most purposes

Can someone test rollover for me? google "rollover tester" and go to the gadzikowski link, or whatever your favorite rollover tester program. Try to press uparrow, rightarrow, rightctrl, rightshift, numpad0. Do you get all those keys to register at once? This keyboard says it is designed for rollover around the wasd keys, but I am left handed so i use all the keys around the arrows. Thanks.
Asked by: Michael
It depends on the order of which the keys are pressed. If I first start holding num0 then it registers "NUM0RIGHTARROWUPARROWCTRLSHIFT (Count: 5)". If I hold num0 last it changes "shift" to "insert" so then it shows "CTRLUPARROWRIGHTARROWINSERT (Count: 4)"
