Zalman chose to get fancy on the front with wispy blue and white graphics surrounding the image of the ZM-K700M, as part of their Z-Machine gaming gear line. We also see at the top that they do show right up front that this uses Cherry MX switches, and this model is in English.

Both of the smaller ends are very basic in what they offer. This end of the box delivers the Zalman name and web address. On the other end of the box, they provide the Z-Machine gaming gear notification.

Both of the longer sides are entirely black, and dead in the middle we find the Z-Machine gaming gear notification again.

On the back you are given features like the Z-bar speed meter, LED options, it tells what the Z-key is for, that it can hold ten macros over two profiles, that the options offered are fun, and they believe that the Cherry MX red switches will provide a comfortable experience. To the right, near the bottom, we are given the same specifications we covered earlier.

As we opened the box, we found the manual floating around on top of the keyboard. The keyboard is wrapped in a foam liner for protection, and the attached USB cable is tucked behind it.

In that same place, the cable is tucked, you also find this USB to PS/2 adapter as many mechanical keyboard users swear USB connectivity is not the way to go, especially if you are super quick around the keys. We were also sent a set of replacement feet backed with 3M tape.

The manual is very thick, but his is due to the number of times they have to repeat themselves to cover all the regions they sell this keyboard. What we have it open to are the meat and potatoes. This will be your cheat sheet for the first few days to get a grasp of what everything does, and where it is located on the keyboard.
