Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation

The packaging is intended to attract attention, using a large image of the keyboard, all lit up and looking good. On the left side of the box, we find the manufacturer name and logo, mentions of Cherry MX Speed switches, the RGB nature of the lights, and the X1 RGB model name at the bottom.

One of the longer side panels explains two things. The first is that this is a professional gaming keyboard, and the second is the list of nine specifications offers at the bottom.

Both of the smaller panels on either end of the box are identical. Both of them show an image of the keyboard along with the X1 RGB naming, and the TT Premium logo.

If you were uncertain of who makes the keyboard, all you have to do is glance at the second long side panel. It is used for the sole purpose of displaying the company logo and name.

On the back, we again see an image of the keyboard, but this time there are notations to the RGB lighting, the game mode and Macro record button, the Windows lock, and the magnetically detachable wrist rest.

 

To the right we see some of the programmed LED modes, the multimedia keys, the pass-through ports, and even an actuation diagram showing the benefit to MX Speed switches.

The keyboard is wrapped in a thin foam bag for protection, and our keyboard is in excellent condition. Under the keyboard, you will locate the wrist rest and the paperwork, while at the back edge, the cable, optional keycaps, and the keycap puller are found.

In this image, we have all of the additional parts. The wrist rest is contoured, sloping to a thin front edge, it is textured on the top, and with the use of two tabs, is magnetically attached to the front edge of the X1 RGB. In front of it, we have the keycap puller and the eight red keys for gamers.

The manual is multi-lingual, but it does show us how to connect the device, how it works, and where to get the software. There is also another insert which notes what Thermaltake will cover, should anything go wrong with the product.
