All of the samples that were sent out for review were pre-release samples, shipped inside of a plain brown box. However, in the media kit they provided, we are given a look at the packaging for their K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE. In typical colors, and with the usual layout, we find features to the left, a huge image of the keyboard, but this time, a notation about the switch travel, finishing off with the product naming on at least a couple sides of the box.

There is some literature shipped inside of the box along with the keyboard. Here we find a quick start guide for the keyboard, basically noting that you should plug in both connections, then venture off to Corsair for the CUE software. There is also a larger warranty guide for the majority of their markets, explaining what is covered under the two-year warranty, as well as a smaller Australia-specific version.

From this distance, the center of the wrist rest and its tiny dimples is hard to see, but we can tell that the soft touch section is wrapped around a textured plastic frame. This is made to easily snap on and off of the front of the keyboard and offers rubber feet under it to make sure the K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE can still stand securely.

On top of adding ion the wrist rest, Corsair also provides highly textured, gray and white FPS and MOBA key cap sets. The plastic of the key caps are molded in black, and on top of that, there is a rubber top applied. Even so, these caps still offer translucent legends on them, as not to obstruct the RGB awesomeness that the K70 offers.
