The packaging for the Strafe RGB MX Silent starts with a large photo of the entire keyboard with the backlighting on and covers the front of the box with it. Then around the keyboard they slipped in some of the important information like the Corsair logo up in the top left and the model name down in the bottom right. In addition to having MX Silent right in the product name they also include a photo of the silent switch down in the bottom right corner. Up in the top right are a few icons like a Cherry MX logo to show that they use genuine Cherry switches, one for the RGB backlighting, and a gears logo that is to show that the keyboard supports Corsair Cue. Down in the bottom left corner they have yellow strips with a little bit of information about a few of the boards highlights. Around back there is another photo of the keyboard but this time from the top down. They used that to draw lines to different features and to include short explanations of each of them. They also go into more detail on what the Corsair Cue software is as well as information on the MX Silent switch. They cover most of what you might need to know but I would still love to see a short specification listing as well.

Inside the box when you open everything up it’s a bit of a mess. There are cardboard pieces on the front and back to protect the keyboard at the bottom of everything. The front cardboard also holds the wrist rest in place. Everything is individually wrapped up to keep it clean and free from fingerprints.

Along with the documentation on the keyboard Corsair also slipped in this shrunk wrapped bag of goodies. Inside are two different sets of keycaps as well as a plastic keycap puller. They pulled the air out of the bag to keep the two sets split up because they share a few keys and it could get a bit confusing but I will cover those more in the next section.

Well a day later than I had originally planned but today I check out the Corsair Strafe with the new Cherry MX Silent switches. If you do nothing else you should at least see the different in the video on the performance page. Have a good weekend everyone!
