There is much to see on the front of the box containing the K70 RGB MK.2 keyboards. The Corsair name and logo is at the left, along with notations to the three onboard profiles, the multi-color per key backlight, and use of Cherry MX switches. A near life-size image of the keyboard in the center, and under it we see points on the aluminum top frame, the 8MB of onboard storage, and gold contact switches, but at the top-right corner is where we look at the specific switch type used.

Most of what is shown on this long skinny side of the box we saw on the front. Beyond the memory, lighting, and switch type, we also see mentions of the detachable soft-touch palm rest for optimal comfort as well as the dedicated multimedia and volume controls.

On the smaller ends of the box, we find the Corsair name and logo on the left. Taking the rest of the black area in the middle of the bright yellow is the K70 RGB MK.2 product name as well as that it is a mechanical gaming keyboard.

The other long side of the box has some stickers for company use at the other end, but the right end, seen here, has what you want to see. Along with the name of the product, there are the technical specifications, package contents, minimum requirements, and even a link to look up the warranty information before purchase.

While both ends are similar in what is offered on the panel, this end of the box has one thing extra. The sticker near the bottom informs us that the keys are in an English layout with the QWERTY keys along the top.

Once flipped over, the back of the box will answer any other questions you may have had. The left side covers the lighting, storage, switch type, NKRO and Anti-ghosting support, and even the included extra keycaps. At the top, the aluminum bits, the pass-through port, and the dedicated multimedia keys are addressed. At the right, we get a glimpse of the iCUE software and what it can do, while at the bottom is the last thing pointed out, where there is a close-up image of the texture on the wrist rest.

The internal packaging is pretty typical for a Corsair keyboard, where it is in a plastic wrapping, and set into the box with a bit at the back folded over to keep it in place. Under that cardboard at the back edge, you will find not just the cable, but also the extra goodies, while the paperwork was sitting on top of the keyboard.

The wrist rest clips to the leading edge of the keyboard, it has rubber feet under it to add more grip, and the top is textured to keep your palms from slipping. Of course, the rest is angled, which improves wrist support, and should lessen any pain found without using it.

Along with the gray painted MOBA and FPS keycaps, all angled, so they are easy to feel out in the dark, we also get a standard plastic keycap puller.

The user guide is on the left, where we see how to connect the keyboard and where to go for software. In the middle is the standard warranty guide that goes over what Corsair will deem worthy of service for the period of two-years. That leaves the third booklet, which covers the Australian markets warranty information.
