Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation
Packaging for the XM One or XM1 is dark, which makes the information pop at the top and bottom of the panel. Both the company and product name are at the top in white and orange lettering and using the same colors, we see mentions of its lightweight, the maximum CPI, and what sensor, and that this mouse offers under 1ms responses. Taking up most of the panel is what are gray triangles, maybe glass, maybe some other effect, but you do have to look closely to make out the product which should have center stage.
On the right side of the box, the lettering is set so that it is easier to read with the box on its back. On the left is the company logo and Endgame Gear name, but you need to get to the right edge to see the XM One version of the product name.
Ten languages are offered for the four-point list of features of the XM1, on the back of the box. In that list are things like their patented technology for the under 1ms from input to action. Endgame Gear also pre-sorts their fifty-million click Omron switches, they make sure you know the 70-gram weight again, and again address the sensor and its abilities.
The last side of the packaging has nothing new to take in, as it is identical to the panel on the other side of the box.
To protect the mouse for shipping, Endgame Gear opts for an open-cell foam, which encapsulates the mouse. This protects the device from minor scratches to hard knocks, and with the cable kept separate, it is likely your XM1 will arrive in as excellent condition as ours has.
The last thing we found in the box was this card. On it, we see where to obtain the software first, in big, bold letters. The default options for the CPI levels and a mention of the mouse offering four levels of CPI control built into the mouse, as well as how to change profiles and the polling rate, are all detailed here. If you do have an issue or a question, Endgame Gear ensures you have that address handy as well.
