For the packaging for the XTi Cooler Master went with a simple black background design with a large nearly life sized photo of the keyboard on the top to show what is inside. They do have the normal Cooler Master and CMStorm logos as well as the Quickfire XTi logo in a metallic finish. They did include a small sticker on the front to let us know what color Cherry MX key switch they went with, for our sample they sent it over with greens, a switch that isn’t available currently in the XTi but I assume is something they are toying with as a one off that they sometimes sell on their own marketplace to enthusiasts. The back of the box has another photo of the keyboard only this time smaller. This left room for a feature list in the top section as well as the same list translated into multiple languages down in the bottom section. The back has the same black background but they also have a zoomed in photo of the keyboard in the background, showing off the blue/red backlighting.

Inside the XTi comes wrapped up in a thick microfiber sleeve. The USB cable comes disconnected and tucked away up under the cardboard. You also get a wired keycap remover and a thin quick start guide. The keycap puller is nice to see because some manufactures have been recently avoiding RMAs on keyboards that the owners have mentioned removing the keycaps. Cooler Master including a keycap puller helps show that they don’t mind you replacing the caps.

Before we hit the weekend I take a look at the latest mechanical keyboard from Cooler Master, the Quickfire XTi.
