The packaging for the Ergostand II is very similar to a laptop, which makes since in the fact that it is both designed for laptops and because the size and shape are very similar to that of a laptop. On the front of the rectangular box we get a few different looks at the Ergostand II in action. Right away we can see a couple of different angles that the stand can prop our devices up at. On top of those images we also get to see a picture of the device actually in use at the bottom right hand corner of the box.  On the bottom left hand corner we see that the stand has an ergonomic design, removable mesh, and that it supports up to 17” devices. In the top left hand corner we see a bit of branding in the Cooler Master logo.

On the bottom of the package we see a short blurb with the name of the product and the website to visit in order to get more information. This info is listed in a number of different languages so that everyone around the world might understand it.

On the back the first thing I noticed was obviously the pictures. Each picture highlights or shows a different feature of the Ergostand II. For instance one picture shows off the adjustable ergonomic design, while another shows off the four USB ports and adjustable fan speed control. It like having a list of features but in picture book format! The next thing I see is the actual feature list, it’s like the awesome pictures we have, but words instead. At least the words appear in multiple different languages again, so if you happen to be illiterate you can feel silly in ten different tongues. The final thing of interest on the back of the box is the specifications chart, which can also be found towards the start of this review. It lists basic information such as dimensions, weight, fan speeds, power, and material of which the product is made.

Finally we head to the sides and the top. The sides are rather uneventful, only another picture of the product and the product name is to be found. Again we see some more Cooler Master branding, but it has been kept to a minimum so it isn’t annoying at all. On the top there is no information or pictures, but there is something pretty cool. There is a handle located at the top for carrying the box around, this is awesome if you are the type of person like myself who tries to keep everything in its original packaging when moving it around. It also makes it incredibly easy to just transport the device with you. With its size and shape it could be a bit awkward to carry around without a box, kind of like a laptop without a bag, but having the handle on the box makes it easier to take with you on a trip.

Inside we find the Ergostand II wrapped up in plastic and tucked into two molded foam shipping pieces. This is to keep the stand from getting banged around and scratched up in transport. Also inside the box is our packaged cable. This cable will give us power from our laptop via USB to the Ergostand II so that the fan may actually run. Finally we have a short user guide, which is nice, but seems a bit unneeded, because how hard can a laptop stand really be to use? I know I will regret saying that when I go to set it up and ask myself, what goes where? I don’t even.
