The front of the box is actually very informative when it comes to knowing what exactly you're dealing with. Across the top we have the brand, ATEN in this case. The other end makes note of its Dual-Link DVI compatibility. Below that, we have a picture of the front and back of the unit.
Heading towards the bottom half of the box, we have mention of some of the main features; again, the fact it supports 2560 x 1600, widescreen resolutions, support for 7.1 surround sound, the inclusion of KVM cables and more.
Turning to the back of the box, we have a bit of a description on what exactly Dual-Link DVI is along with an explanation on all the ports and how you would make use of them. The box really is half marketing and half instruction manual; it's the closest thing to reading instructions I've done over the past few years.
Moving inside the package, you're obviously greeted by a multitude of cables that help you get the device setup.
First up, we have our main set of cables which include a DVI connection, microphone and stereo audio port along with a USB port on each side. This is the main cable that is needed to help the KVM speak to the other PCs.
Next, if you want to move up from stereo to 5.1 or 7.1, we have all the other audio jacks and colours needed that go between the KVM and your PCs sound card.
Also included is a cable that lets you update the firmware on the unit along with a dual PS/2 to USB convertor which is necessary if one or both of your devices use PS/2. Though, if you are still using PS/2, you are living in the dark ages and it's probably time for an upgrade.
The last item in the cable bunch is a power adapter that is needed to use the KVM.
Also included in the package is a manual and quick start guide to help you get up and running as soon as possible.
