Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation
The front of the box is bright and flashy, with the logo at the left, and a large image of the keyboard in the center. To the left we see mentions of the switches, amount of profiles, per-key RGB backlighting, and use of Cherry MX switches. We also see, at the bottom, the switches are Silent, there is 8MB of storage, and again with the backlighting.
On the more extended panel, Corsair used the space to cover things like the onboard storage, lighting, type of switches, inclusion of a palm rest, and dedicated multimedia keys.
The smaller end of the box is encircled with yellow, while the black section highlights the name of the product and the Corsair logo.
The second long side of the box is mostly black, but there is this section where the name of the keyboard is found. Next, to it, there are the technical specifications in condensed form, package contents, and the system requirements.
Much like the other end of the box, this smaller end also provides the company and product names. On this end, we get the extra sticker at the bottom to explain that this keyboard is an English QWERTY layout.
There is a ton going on when we look at the back of the box. The left edge covers features and includes a look at the optional keycaps. The middle is an image of the keyboard with the Windows lock, USB pass-through, and dedicated multimedia buttons are pointed to. The right edge is used to show the iCUE software and explain some of what can be done, and there is even a mention of the palm rest at the bottom.
With doubled walls of cardboard on both sides, and a snug fit from front to back, the plastic bag is the only thing protecting the finishes. However simple, the Strafe RGB MK.2 is in great shape and is the cable and keycaps at the back, as well as the palm rest found under the keyboard.
The palm rest is like what comes with many other Corsair keyboards. Using clips to attach to the front edge of the keyboard, this soft-touch palm rest will add comfort to those who type or game for long hours at a time.
Along with sets of gray, highly textured, MOBA and FPS gaming keycaps, Corsair also provides a key puller. The caps are angled for a more comfortable location, and will still allow the RGB backlighting to shine through the letters.
The manual at the left explains what should be in the box and what it needs to function. After an installation guide, you are also given the address to obtain the iCUE software. Along with the larger warranty guide, there is an insert for Australian users, explaining the coverage and where to go if an issue arises.
