The AORUS Thunder K7 comes packaged in a very large black and blue box, following the corporate colour scheme of the company (Gigabyte, specifically), as well giving an indication of the styling and lighting effects of the K7 itself (more in that in a bit).

Inside the box is a very minimal accessory package: some basic documentation, though there’s no software disk; you’ll need to visit AORUS’s website for the download.

There is a cable for the numpad to use as a standalone, but that’s about it.

Let’s take a closer look at the keyboard itself.
