Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation
The packaging is typical to what we see on many of the Corsair peripherals, where the use of bright yellow grabs your attention, while the rest of the box is black. On the front of the box, we find the Corsair name and logo at the top of the panel, with a near life-sized image of the M55 RGB PRO right in the center. The bottom of the panel offers the full name of the mouse, and also offers an icon showing that it is iCUE compatible.
The right side of the box is black, and without too much to discuss aside from what we saw on the front, we do see the "Control Freak" here, which we have seen previously on other Corsair mice.
Around the back of the box, we get the complete name of the mouse at the top, but this time followed by features. Corsair mentions the ambidextrous design, the high-performance sensor, its lightweight, the durable construction and braided cable, and also the plug-and-play ease of this device. Next to the features are a pair of images of the M55 RGB PRO, while below is a short list of system requirements.
The last external panel on the packaging offers up what we saw on the opposing panel, but this time the Control Freak has been removed, and in its place is yet another view of the M55 RGB PRO.
While not particularly attractive, or designed in any way to show off the mouse, the inner packaging is made of black cardboard, which encompasses the entire mouse. The mouse is also wrapped in plastic to protect shiny finishes and the matte texture of the M55, leaving the cable exposed. No matter how this looks, it has done the job it is intended for, and has protected our M55 RGB PRO in transit, leaving us with a flawless product.
Also in the box with the mouse is the literature. The guide on the left shows all of the parts of the mouse, pointed out with letters, which are then explained in text below. It them moves into connectivity and software downloading before explaining that the M55 RGB PRO is set for right-hand use by default, and offers instructions on how to convert it to left-hand usage. This information is then repeated in three other languages. As for the insert to the right, this covers all of the terms of the warranty and also offers up subsections of how they handle the various aspects of possible issues.
