Rather than the black and purple box that we are used to, the SK621 ships in a white box with purple trim. On the front of the box, we see who made it and the full name of the keyboard off to the left. In the center is a view of what is inside of the box, while to the right are a mention of the switches used, as well as notations for its Bluetooth compatibility, its RGB support, and again, use of Cherry MX switches.

On this long side of the box, the entire panel is purple, but the only things we see are the company name, logo, and tag line, and again, the SK621 Compact 60% Mechanical Wireless Keyboard with Low-profile Switches product name.

Both of the small ends of the box are identical in every detail. The only thing worth a mention, since everything else has been addressed a couple of times already is the sticker showing that this SK621 comes with the US keyboard layout.

The second long side of the box offers up the fact that this is a mechanical keyboard and gives you the address to find more information. After repeating that in twenty-two other languages, to the right we see the North America location information, the address for support, and the product sticker on the right end of it.

Around the back of the box, we can see another image of the keyboard, but this time, there are features shown and explained. These cover things like its Bluetooth connectivity, slim keycaps, easy to use software, on-the-fly controls, portability, and use of Cherry MX switches. Only eight of the other languages get this information before we see the contents list and OS support near the bottom of the right side.

After removing the thin outer box, there is a much thicker black cardboard box inside. Inside of that box, we then find the keyboard shipped inside of a velvet bag with drawstring closure at one end. A nice touch for those looking to this product for its portability and use when traveling. Under the keyboard, you will find the literature and parts.

The parts you will find at the bottom of the box is what we are showing now. At the top is a 1.8-meter long cable, which has a braided cover on it from the USB 2.0 connector on the right, to the USB Type-C connection on the left, and is bound with a reusable Velcro strap. At the bottom, we see a keycap puller tool, which if you need to clean the top plate of the keyboard, can come in handy.

Two forms of literature come with the SK621. At the top, there is a manual of how to connect the keyboard in the standard fashion, along with many listings of the secondary functionality and how to use them. We would keep this one handy, as you will be referring to it a lot at first until you get to know how it all works without software. The second insert is all about how to connect the SK621 wirelessly via Bluetooth and should clear up any questions or issues you may have when trying to make that happen.
