The naming is to the left for the company, and the product seem to the right. There is an annotation to the RGB feature, and they show the switches used, and along the bottom are sure to cover ten other features found in or on the Ripjaws KM780 RGB.

Laying the box down and looking at one of the longer sides, we did find the G.SKILL name and logo to the left, but the technical specifications, system requirements, and package contents were more important to cover in a readable fashion.

This smaller end is kept pretty simple with just a black panel so that the red and white boldly contrasts the company and product naming. We also see that the box is sealed, and nobody has tampered with this since it left the factory.

The other longer side also keeps things simple with the company logo to the left and the KM780 RGB keyboard printed down its length.

Both ends are sealed as we can now see, and as to the rest of the panel, it is a direct copy to what we saw on the other end.

Making it now to the back of the packaging shows us the KM780 RGB with LEDs lit and the red key caps installed. Around that image, there are twelve things addressed, and in case they are not clear enough, they are listed again in the fine print at the bottom.

The keyboard is shipped inside of plastic, with cardboard around it, and a folded bit at the back to offset space and offer a place for the cable. The rest of the included goods are in compartments below this and are also bagged in plastic so that like this one, it arrives in great shape.

The quick start guide does what it sounds like, it gets you connected, briefly covers the keyboard, and shows where to get the drivers. Never fear, there is a full user manual available there too. Also included is the paperwork for what G.SKILL will cover in the two-year warranty period.

As we mentioned, do not forget to look under the keyboard. Otherwise, you may miss the black textured wrist rest, as well as the key cap puller and caps set case.

Opening the smaller case we find ten red caps with thick raised sections across their tops, and each is angled for the perfect fit to the fingertip. Inside of the top, there is also a key cap puller that is clipped in so that neither the caps of the puller gets lost.
