Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation
In what we can only describe as a throwback to the 80s, the front of the DM5 Blink is splatter painted with pink and blue, which does an excellent job of highlighting the top view of the mouse that uses up most of the panel. At the top, we see the Dream Machines name, and keeping things clean and simple is the DM5 Blink name at the bottom.
The right side of the box stays white and sticking to the clean and simple theme, all we see on this panel are the log at left, and the DM5 in blue with Blink in pink. We will not be showing the left side of the box, as it is an identical match to what we see here.
The back of the box has the product and company names at the top, with a bit more of the 80s mixed in behind the featured images. The four features listed cover the PixArt 3389 sensor, use of 20-million click Huano switches, the top of the DPI scale of 16,000, and that it offers 16-million color choices in the RGB backlighting. The fine print at the bottom tells us that this is a gaming mouse, but does so in nine languages.
Inside of the box, we found a two-part plastic shell keeping the DM5 Blink secure and free of scuffs and dust. To aide in that, Dream Machines also packs the cable in a bag, so that there is no way it will make direct contact with the mouse. While our box was slightly wrinkled from shipping, the inner packaging held up to the trip and delivered us a pristine product for testing.
The literature is more of a guide, and upon opening it, you will find a five-step procedure for connectivity and use. At the bottom of which, there are two addressed to be used to obtain the software to control it further. There are also images showing proper cleaning, how best to use the mouse, and what types of surfaces, and that it should not be left in the sun or the rain. On the back, there are two more things mentioned. First is that the DPI buttons are shown, and at the bottom, it shows a few images alluding to the fact that if you have questions, they have people waiting to take them.
The last bits we found in the box are what we have in this image. There is a replacement set of feet that we see across the back. Sitting in front of them is the DM Shot cover plate, and an extra-long DM Shot button if the stock button on the mouse is not long enough for you to reach.
