Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation

Yellow and black is the norm for Corsair and their products, and the Nightsword RGB follows suit. The company name and logo is at the top, with an image of the Nightsword in the center, viewed from above. At the bottom, not only is there the iCUE notation, but we also see the full name, the Nightsword RGB Performance Tunable FPS/MOBA Gaming Mouse.

Much like what we saw on the M55 RGB packaging, this side is used to display three things. There is the name and logo, for the company, the full name of the product, and the "Control Freak" written at the right.

The back panel offers the full name at the top, along with the iCUE mention, but below, next to the images of the mouse are the features in four languages. They cover the 18,000 DPI, the smart tunable weight system, the contoured shape and rubber grips, the ten programmable buttons, and that there are two sets of weights and six locations to install them. At the bottom, we see that you need a PC with a USB port, Windows 7 or newer OS, and an internet connection for iCUE to get the best of this mouse.

The remaining panel offers much of what we saw on the other side panel, but this time we see an illuminated image of the Nightsword to illustrate what to expect of this mouse aesthetically, when in use.

The interior packaging is what we are used to seeing, where thin cardboard is used to reinforce the outer packaging, with form fitting plastic used to protect the mouse as well as display it in full view. Under the mouse are the goodies and the cable.

First of the goodies is this plastic container which sports the Corsair logo on the top of it. Once opened, we see two types of add-in weights. Snuggled in dense foam, the three weights on the left are 2.8 grams. The trio on the right are solid, and weigh in at 4.5 grams. None, one, or all of the weights can be used in the mouse, and iCUE even has a way to virtually weight the mouse and see where the center of gravity is before adding a single weight into the mouse.

The literature that comes with the Nightsword RGB is like what we saw with the M55 RGB. The guide shows the mouse layout with descriptions, tells you how to connect the mouse, and has a small section on weighting, all repeated in multiple languages. The warranty information goes over what is and what is not covered for the period of two-years that Corsair has it under warranty.

As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
