Corsair Raptor K40 Gaming Keyboard Review

Packaging, Accessories and Documentation




The packaging is eye grabbing and bright as it has red accents in the naming and design. To the right is a large image of the keyboard with the backlight. Off to the left, above the product naming, we are also given a list of features.




Along this long side of the packaging, there are three things pointed out. First, they cover the color change capability, and then they go into the G-keys offered, and they finish out with the multimedia keys being highlighted. The opposing long side of the box only shows the company and product naming, so we will not be showing that.




The smaller ends of the box both are similar to what we see here. On this end, along with the naming, there is also the red box stating this is a QWERTY US layout keyboard. The other end does not have the layout notification, but it is otherwise the same.




Around back, Corsair keeps things pretty simple as well. The image at the top points out the G-keys, Macros, and multimedia keys, while below that image are multilingual listings of its features. The right side does the same thing by listing the specs and system requirements in multilingual fashion.




Inside of the box, we find the keyboard wrapped in a plastic bag to keep the cardboard from rubbing directly against the K40. At the back is a cardboard spacer to keep the board in place, but it also offers a place for the cable. As for the paperwork included, that can be found under the keyboard at the bottom of the box.




The paperwork offered is what we show here with the warranty guide and a special insert for Australian consumers. We are also given a quick start guide that covers the basics of the K40 and shows us how to connect it and where to go for software.
