Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation
The box of the STREAK is made of thick cardboard, and the exterior is shiny where it displays a slightly smaller than life-size image of the keyboard, but the rest of the surface is matte. On the left of the image are the company logo and name, while the right flank of the keyboard has the STREAK product name.
On this long and short side of the box, we start with a sticker at the left containing the name, model number, and compliance information. There is a Fnatic Gear logo, specifications, a bit about the switch choices, and at the right end, we see the type of included switches and the layout of the keyboard.
One of the smallest ends of the box shows off the Fnatic prowess, with their dare to win strategy. Seven years as number one in Counter-Strike, three major winners at Counter-Strike, and five LCS champions in League of Legends. At the bottom, there is a snippet from JW, a professional CS:GO player, who says his life depends on this keyboard, and yours should too!
The second long but short side of the box is entirely white, except for the Fnatic name and logo next to the fact that they have been a professional e-Sports team since 2004.
The last of the sides offers the Fnatic logo in orange, and the backdrop is split between white and black as a carryover from the front panel design.
The back of the box starts with a bit about Fnatic, where they discuss making winning products, the skill to do so is on you, and a bit about the STREAK. There are two vies of the keyboard, one showing the signature plate at the top, while the larger image is used to point out the RGB LEDs. Competition mode, use of anodized aluminum, dedicated multimedia keys and Function Lock, and a shortlist of features at the end to close the deal.
Once the tamper-proof stickers are cut, the top of the box will lift off, exposing the STREAK for your viewing pleasure. The combination of a tightly fitting lid and a thin layer of dense foam under the keyboard have protected it well. The yellow section of cardboard at the back houses the cable, and to find the palm rest and literature, lift the keyboard out of the box, as they are both under it.
The palm rest is a two-part design that allows for three distances from the leading edge of the keyboard. The metal section clips into grooves and holes in the keyboard, while the padded, dimpled, leather-like material sits on a plastic frame which lies in the slots of the metal component.
Under the keyboard, but above the palm rest, there is the black box at the top left, nestled into a section of the packaging. Inside of it you will find a multi-lingual guide as to the functionality of the dual-purpose and dedicated keys found on the STREAK. For those that like stickers, you get three, and they can be applied to anything you feel can use the Fnatic name or logo.
