If there were a design award for packaging, CM Storm would get it for this panel. I mean, what is cooler than a mouse on fire? I am sure this will get your attention on the shelf. Both Cooler Master and CM Storm, along with the Havoc name and DPI abilities are all placed around an image of the Havoc from the top down, and the rest of the panel is flat black for high contrast.
The front panel is held on with Velcro, and once opened will show you features about the Havoc on the left. On the right side you get a clear view of the mouse you are buying, and again you can see the bit about this being a professional gaming mouse and the DPI scale.
The right side of the packaging continues to carry part of the red and grey logo from the front. Off to the left of it though you will find the Storm Tactics of Strength, Security and Control.
On the back there is another splash of red and grey, but the majority of this panel is dedicated to the features, and a brief description is given along with each of the features listed. At the bottom is regional information for addressed and site information for those in need of support.
The last panel of the packaging repeats the same information down the panel in 21 languages, before it shows the Windows support and various OS's that this will run with at the bottom.
Getting much closer to see just what Cooler Master was explaining in the last image, you can see that they inform buyers that this is a gaming mouse, the Havoc, and where to go for more information about the Havoc before purchasing one.
The inner packaging is a two piece plastic shell. There is one for the top that also adds the side supports that are taller than the mouse to take any impacts first and protect the mouse in the middle. The lower section fits into the bottom and has a bit of room for the cord. The red color in the middle is just a paper board insert to give the product some flash and hide the wiring and paperwork from view.
