G.SKILL Ripjaws MX780 Laser Gaming Mouse Review

Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation




The left of the package is taken up with the G.SKILL and Ripjaws MX780 naming on what appears to be a memory heat spreader. To the right we find the LEDs are full RGB, we see a large image of the mouse, and at the bottom, the DPI and sensor, the custom RGB lighting, the eight buttons, and its ambidextrous and height adjustable design.





The front does open on this package and exposes a panel on the left showing both sets of side grips with the MX780, and at the bottom covers features, shows where the weights go, and also shows how the heel raises. Off to the right, we get a view of the MX780 and the goodies that come with it.




The right side of this box keeps things fairly simple with a solid black panel used to highlight the red and white text for the company and product naming.




On the back, the LEDs on the MX780 have been changed, while off to the left of it there are seven features listed. The fine print at the bottom lists the adjustable height heel, the side grips, the eight buttons, and the ambidexterity.




This smaller side of the box, rather than to copy the other side, this time we have a view of the MX780 along with smaller text, and to the right they even added the web address.




Protecting the mouse and its bits from damages and keeping them from moving around, they chose this shell over a shell design. It works tremendously well as the sides take any impacts, and just like ours did, allows the MX780 to arrive unmolested.




Under the plastic, there is some paperwork to locate. To the left is the quick start guide, and its job is to get the MX780 connected to the PC, briefly go over its features, and then point you to where to get the driver and software download. The warranty guide informs you of what is covered in the two years they offer with this device.




In the back, we have the pair of magnetic side grips that turn what is shipped as a right-hand mouse into a left-hand mouse. In simpler terms, it reverses the larger thumb grip and the smaller finger grips with those sent on the MX780. We also see the pair of 4.5-gram weights in their rubber sleeves, and we also get a hex driver to work the hell positioning.




Both the set on the MX780 as well as this optional left-hand set are held onto the mouse with a pair of very strong magnets for their size. They are also designed to sit low on the sides, so that when you grip it to lift the MX780, the pressure is not on the magnets.
