only get one chance to make a first impression and
it's pretty clear that Gyration are only too aware
of this fact. This isn't the kind of box design you
pick up from the tight-wad.com online archive of free
box templates, this is a custom designed job that's
a real touch of class. Silver ink on blue, box window
and ample info get the message across in some style.
inside the box is everything you need to get moving,
it's very much plug and point. In addition to a fold
out quick start guide you also get individual manuals
on both the mouse and keyboard, the mouse and keyboard
themselves, RF reciever, mouse charging cradle, power
adaptor and a set of batteries for the keyboard.
RF receiver is a fairly sleek, curvy looking affair.
On the front are a status light, Num, Caps and Scroll
status lights for the keyboard and a conflict light
to indicate that an unrecognized device is trying
to access an active channel.
the top of the unit is the "Learn" button
which is used alongside the "Teach" buttons
on the mouse and keyboard to synchronize them.
there's anything I'd do to the RF receiver to improve
things it would be to design it so it can also be
fitted in a spare 3.5" external bay in your case
should you choose to free up some desk space. This
would probably mean incorporating a flatter face and
possibly redesigning the antenna and it would also
reduce the usefulness of the keyboard status lights
unless you have your case on your desk but I think
it would be an interesting option.
