Everything about the Isku FX’s box is big. It’s big for a keyboard box (22x12x1.5 in), it’s got a big picture of the keyboard on the front, and the big bold words scream “look at me!”

03_boxback

The back of the box outlines some of the Isku FX’a notable features.

Compared to the original Isku, features new to the Isku FX are multicolor LED backlights capable of over 16 million colors and support for ROCCAT Talk FX, a driver feature that allows on-screen actions to be translated into reactive keyboard lighting. All other features are carried over from the original Isku which include Easy Shift [+], up to 36 programmable macro keys, and five profiles.

Behind the outer cardstock box is an inner cardboard box where we find the Isku FX packed in an anti-static bag.

05_contents

There’s barely anything else besides the Isku FX. The only thing else included is a quick installation guide that reiterates some of the keyboard’s features described on the box, steps for recording macros, steps for using Easy-Shift[+], and installing the Isku FX. No driver CD is included, thus necessitating an internet connection in order to download the keyboard software.
