Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation

The K68 RGB comes in the same packaging as all other Corsair keyboards. On the front, to the left, we see the Corsair name and logo, along with indications of per-key RGB lighting, spill and dust resistance, and use of Cherry MX switches. In the middle is a near actual size image of the K68 RGB, while to the right we see the switches are reds, and that the K68 RGB is a mechanical gaming keyboard.

If the indications on the left of the front panel were not enough to get what is going on, Corsair used this side panel to explain things. There are descriptions for the LEDs, the membrane, and the switches. It is also where Corsair takes time to mention the palm rest and the multimedia keys.

While there is not much information to be had looking at this end of the box, we do like the slick look of the black and yellow, along with the white names and logo, with the touch of colors around the RGB nomenclature.

The second skinny side of the box has less information to offer than its opposing panel, but along with the company and product names, we find the list of specifications, we see what comes in the box, and are also shown the system requirements.

Most of this end of the box matches what we saw at the other end, but more important is the sticker at the bottom. It is there in which we are told that this keyboard is built with an English (US) layout with the QWERTY keys along the top row.

The back of the box has much to offer beyond the image of the keyboard in the middle. To the left, they mention the LEDs, the switches, CUE software, and resistance to dust and spills. At the top, we see anti-ghosting and NKRO, Windows lock, and multimedia keys pointed out. At the bottom is a close-up image of the texture of the palm rest, and to the right is a glimpse of the software and what it offers.

After opening the box, we immediately see the keyboard wrapped in a plastic bag. At the back of the box, under the black cardboard, is where the attached USB cable is contained, while the manual, warranty information, and the palm rest are all found under the keyboard.

The palm rest connects to the keyboard with a pair of clips on the back edge of it; it is thicker at the back than it is in the front, and is highly textured. For those who type or game most of the day, this is an ergonomic addition that will grip the palms of your hands, and relieve stresses so that you can use it longer.

The last things we pulled out of the box are these inserts. The first of them is the user's manual, where it shows how to connect the product, points out some of the features, and explains how to obtain the software. The warranty guide next to it explains what Corsair is responsible for when it comes to an RMA, and to the right is another insert specific to the Australian warranty coverage.
