Minimum details. no illustrations. CM Novatouch TKL with CM branding on the top. Towards the underbelly of the box is where a small image of the keyboard’s layout is put up, along with its features mentioned in more than one language.

Once you open the box, you’ll find that the keyboard is nicely protected by a thick layer of foam. Under the keyboard, you’ll find the gold-plated right-angled USB cable, a key cap puller (a better one) and a pack of O-rings.
