Packaging

The Skiller is positioned on the left of the front of the packaging amidst some mist and the reflection below it. On the right side there are blocks with features covering the key programmability, the eight swappable gaming keys, the software, N-Key Rollover support, ten profiles and multimedia keys.

Both of the thin sides of the Skiller packaging offer only the product name and that this is a gaming keyboard.

On the back, the left portion of the packaging shows the Skiller at a better angle for viewing all of the keys with three close-up images of the replaceable key caps, the multimedia keys and the software being highlighted at the bottom.

The right third of the back panel offers an English and German chart for the features, specifications and included parts list that doesn't mention the key puller. At the bottom, the same six features we discussed on the front are shown here as well.

A thin plastic bag is all that really protects the keyboard during transit. Even as far as a fold over portion to secure the USB cable that usually makes for a snug fit of the board is not present. You can also see the additional key caps and puller are set in a bag to float freely around inside.

Out of the box and the plastic liner, you can see that all of the shiny bits of the keyboard are also protected with this application of plastic. Between the box, liner and this stuck on layer, the Skiller did arrive in perfect condition.

Removing them from the bag, you can see that the light blue replacement gaming key caps are very textured and are much flatter than the other keys on the board. The included key puller will make this job simple to swap them out with ease.

There is also a CD included that contains the instruction manual and the software to make the Skiller a completed package. The keyboard and multimedia keys work by default, but to enjoy the massive level of programmability, you must run the keyboard software.
