Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation

The packaging for our LAPDOG is pretty basic. The box is shiny and black, and all of the text is presented in white. On the top of the box, the Corsair name is under the fragile sticker at the left, the LAPDOG name is large and bold, and to the right it is said to be a Gaming Control Center.

On the longer side, we did cut off the Corsair name and logo to the left, but we kept the important bits. This says we can have "living room gaming with no compromise," while the far right end offers a list of five features to read over.

On this smaller end, things are kept short and sweet. You get the company name and logo, the product name in the largest font, and the type of product it is at the bottom.

The other of the long sides of the box offers the Corsair name, and the LAPDOG naming we seen on the other side, but this time we cut it down even more. This bit is imperative. Due to the design of the LAPDOG, you can only use Corsair K70 series and K65 series keyboards.

This smaller end of the box condenses what we saw on the opposing end, and shifts it to the left just a bit. This allows then to add in the product sticker at the bottom, and we assume the large white box will be used to display combination keyboard kits.

Inside of the box, we find a compartment to the far right with a cable and power adapter in it, while the LAPDOG takes up the rest of the internals. The lap pad is at the bottom, wrapped in plastic, and under a layer of cardboard. On the top, we find the main component of the LAPDOG, also wrapped in plastic, and it all uses dense foam to support and protect this product from damages, and it works perfectly in doing so.

As part of the kit, we were shipped this 100 – 240V two-pronged power adapter to deliver 12V to the USB 3.0 hub. This means you can power all four ports at once without having to worry about if the USB cable carries enough power to it.

To connect the LAPDOG to the PC, Corsair offers this cable. Here we have a rubberized cable that contains both a USB 3.0 extension cable, but also incorporates the 12V power line as well. The best part is that this cable measures seventeen feet in length, and should be long enough for most situations.

The instruction manual covers the LAPDOG and everything else you need to know about it. It starts off with two sections depending on which keyboard type you want to install. It then shows the installation process step-by-step, making sure to cover everything needed to get gaming from the couch.
