Packaging, Accessories and Documentation
Packaging is typical Corsair with a mostly black box, this time with bright red accents. Along with an image of the mouse just off to the right, there is a list covering the DPI and optical sensor, weight system, and seven programmable buttons all found in the Raptor M45 gaming mouse.
The front panel does open up to show the mouse to the right under the plastic dome. The left side shows the mouse and some of the features in images, while above and below are features at the top and the DPI and sensor being discussed in other languages at the bottom.
This is a view of the right side of the packaging without the front panel open. Here they simply offer the Corsair name at the top, and in the middle is an image of the M45 along with its full naming.
Turning to the back, we find the M45 pictured largely and dead center of the panel. Around it, they point out the scroll wheel, use of Omron Switches, right-handed design, polling rate, DPI adjustment with LED indicator, soft touch finish, and the larger PTFE feet used in this design.
The last panel starts with both the company and product names moved to the top so that there was room for four versions of the specifications and performance lists. It's too bad the online charts weren't this descriptive. The packaging really would inform the customer, if they don't happen to buy it online.
Inside of the packaging, there is this thick cardboard inner packaging to stand tall around the mouse to keep it from being crushed. They also tuck the dome over the mouse under a layer of cardboard to be certain the M45 inside is not going to move at all.
Under the mouse, there is some paperwork tucked in with it as well. To the left is what you can claim and what is not covered under the two year warranty, and to the right is the quick start guide to help you plug in the mouse and tell you where to get the software.
