Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation




The majority of the front panel is used for the large image of the Ares and Ourea, shown lit up and ready for gaming. The chrome sticker notifies users to visit the site at the provided address to register and obtain information and benefits. The smaller white section to the right offers the naming of what comes in the kit and lists four features that can be found in these devices.





This longer panel offers a list of ten features. It covers lighting, profiles, competitive usage, timers, and so on down the list.




Both of the smaller ends of the packaging sport the Zeus logo. While we are not sure how their mouse name has anything to do with this kit, it does look cool with the white logo in the middle of a flat black panel.




This longer panel offers five icons down its length. They denote the membrane switches, the ten million clicks, WASD and arrow key exchange, a four layer structure, and special grooves in the bottom for cable management. Of course, these all are specific to the Ares, and not the Ourea.




As we move around to the back of the box, we find, off to the left, a brief statement on the Ares which lists features, repeated in many languages. In the middle is the specifications chart, contents list, and the system requirements. This leaves the right side for Gamdias to offer the multilingual statement about the Ourea and its features.




As we slice through a sticker to allow us to open the box, we find the keyboard is wrapped in plastic and set on the left side of the box. With cardboard used to hide the wiring at the back, it also is used to keep the mouse on the right separated from the keyboard so that they do not rub together in transit.




Under the keyboard, you will locate the quick installation guide, which pretty much shows you how to connect the devices and offers information that you need to go to their site to grab the Hera software. Along with the guide, Gamdias also sends along a pair of Zeus stickers to put on anything you see fitting to stick them to.
