Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation


The front of the box in which the Hermes P2 is shipped in a chock a block with information. On the dark section of the panel, we see the keyboards, a cut-away of the switches, features, the keycap puller, a nod to the RGB LEDs, and even a pair of renderings showing a couple of the default LED modes. To the right, we see some of these features again but listed, so it is easy to read and understand.


The first of the longer sides of the box keeps things simple though. While on the right are the company and product names, the bulk of the panel is used to show the P2 RGB from four angles of view.


Spinning the box to the left, we then run into this shorter panel, which offers the Zeus logo in a while on a broad expanse of black cardboard.


Again, the names are present at the left end of this panel, but we chose to move in a bit. Doing so allows us to show the built-in wrist rest, the exposed metal faceplate design, and there is also a look at the HERA software.


The last thin panel of the box shows the company name and tagline on the left. The right side is used for company and legal information. The bottom offers symbols, most important to users are the Made in Canada logo and the Windows 10 compatible icon at the end.


In each of the tiles to the left, the storage, metal plate, Windows lock, keyboard programmability, hotkeys, exchangeable keys, as well as software and firmware are mentioned in various languages. The right half offers the keyboard in an image, with the specifications, package contents and system requirements shown below it.


After cutting through a sticker, we can open the box, which exposed a view of lots of thin foam padding material. The foam is wrapped around the entire keyboard to protect the finish of it, while the cardboard at the front is used to keep it in place. Once the keyboard is lifted out of the box, the front cardboard section can be opened to find the cable and the keycap puller.


While we found no form of paperwork inside of the box, not even a product placement sheet, we did locate the keycap puller in a plastic bag. Metal is shaped into this form, and plastic wraps the circular bit to keep from running up against the edges of the metal. The metal is left in a rough state, however, and will mar the paint used on these keycaps.
