Mionix offers very little on the front of the box, but what they do offer is all you need to know this far. Placing the Mionix logo right smack in the center, so you can easily tell who makes it, and then using the rest of the area to show a nearly life-sized image of the keyboard, adorned with the glow of RGB LEDs. At the bottom of the panel, we find the product name, Wei, and that it is made for gamers and artists.

Both of the longer sides of the box are identical and have what we see in the black text, centered on either side. We again find the Mionix logo, and this time is it presented to the left of geographical locations, and the line that follows is "if you are in, you're in."

Both of the smaller ends are also identical. We can read who the keyboard is made for, why it has fresh color options, the type of switches, and more information about the design found inside of the box.

We get the animal and candy references to the names of the products available in this series of keyboards, but we do find it odd that the user is eating Oreos while looking like he is using a candy bar and dog tags as a mouse. On the right of all of that, we see many features lists in many languages, and also that the Wei we have is a US layout keyboard based on Cherry MX Red switches.

Once we opened the box, we found the Wei Ice Cream in full view. Only the cardboard box is what Mionix uses to protect the keyboard, as neither sample was bagged before putting it in the box. While the keyboards did arrive safely, there is quite a bit of dust on them. At the back, under all of the food images, is where the cable is kept to keep from marring the keycaps or the aluminum top plate.

Under the Wei, inside of the box, you will find the quick start guide with warranty information. In it, there is a brief text description for connectivity, and it then moves right into the warranty. The coverage of the terms is for two years inside of the EU, and only one year for all other locations. There is also information on support, compliances, safety, environmental disposal information, Limits of Liability, and information including addresses for Mionix. Inside of the booklet, we also found a pair of stickers to put on anything you see fit.

Since we are discussing packaging, we moved the Mionix Long Pad packaging images here, but we will show the product later in the review. Again, the front of the box has the image of the product, its name, and the Mionix logo. The long sides of the package match, and displays specifications and phrases about this product.

The back of the box shows both ways the Mionix Long Pad can be put to use, and to be blunt, as a mouse pad, you have to love high DPI and lifting the mouse a bunch to use it in that manner. In the white area, we see an Ice Cream sandwich alluding to the product inside, followed by specifications and features of the device in multiple languages.
