Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation
The front panel plays off the flash of white light on the left of the keyboard image, and delivers the name of the keyboard, a nod to the 16.9 million color choices, and that this is a US layout device, at the top. Lower on the panel we see that it uses mechanical switches, there is a frameless design, and that this is "raw power, unchained."
This longer side of the box, we cropped out the names, so we could see the use of SWARM software, that it is MMO, MOBA, and FPS approved, and we also can see five features in blue boxes. Those icons cover the Game Mode button, the Breathing Mode of LED lighting, Per-key Illumination, 1000Hz polling rate, and anti-ghosting.
Both smaller ends are identical and are similar in motif as the front panel is. There is the ROCCAT name and logo, the Suora FX name, an image of the keyboard viewed from the back, that this is an RGB illuminated frameless gaming mechanical keyboard, and even offers the site address.
With just a pair of barcodes at the other end of this long panel, we decided to just get the company name, logo, product name and description, as it looks much better than white squares and black vertical lines.
The back of the box covers much of what we have seen up to now, around another image of the Suora FX at the top. The lower section lists nine features, repeats them in another nine languages, and is also where the specs, contents, and requirements are found.
The inner packaging is about as good as it gets. Not only does ROCCAT surround the Suora FX with plastic to protect it, but it is also placed in a cardboard tray which keeps it centered in the box. Taking it a step further, there is also a layer of dense foam that lays on top of the keyboard, to be certain that no matter how it is handled, it arrives in superb condition like ours did.
Under the keyboard, we found some literature too, but no stickers this time. The guide is a fold out section of thick paper coated in plastic, which offers basic connectivity, tells you how to access the drivers, but beyond that, it is a cheat sheet to learn to use the dual function buttons. In certain areas, how you dispose of the product is important, and ROCCAT includes a guide for those matters as well.
