Rosewill sends the RGB80 out in a flat black package that displays the ten-keyless mechanical keyboard in many of the color options, although only one color is functional at a time. We also see under the naming that they claim this to be a 16.8 million color choice solution, but not with the software they provide... yet.

One of the longer sides has the Rosewill name to the left, but we stepped in closer to view the five features offered at this end. They cover the colors, the adjustable levels of intensity, and layouts of the lighting, anti-ghosting, the fact it's fully mechanical, and they also offer five profiles to play around with.

Both of the smaller ends display the RGB80 naming, and again with the amount of colors that the RGB naming insinuates, one would believe that that means that there is an option to use the RGB scale to enter colors, but you will soon see that isn't entirely possible.

To cover their markets, Rosewill uses the other long, thin panel to display features contained in this design. We will see the English version of these on the back panel of the packaging.

On the back we see the keyboard at the top with lines running from sections, and explanations of the features they are pointing to. Under that is the English version of the features, followed by the specifications. To the right are four images highlighting the applied texture, the detachable braided cable, the profile keys, and the optional key caps.

Inside, we find the RGB80 inside of a thin foam sleeve to keep it from getting paint rubbed off of it if it were to move around inside. The extra key caps and USB cable are located behind the keyboard, under the folded section of cardboard. We also found some paperwork lying at the bottom of the box to help with installing and controlling the keyboard.
