The keyboard arrived in a surprisingly large package. Aorus took the time to layout the information on the box very carefully and it is presented tactfully. The packaging shows the keyboard on the front and goes into more details about the features of the Thunder K7 on the back.

After removing the outer shell, another box houses the Aorus Thunder K7. The keyboard and accessories are protected from damage by a semi-rigid compartmentalized plastic shell on the front and a thick closed cell foam pad in the back. Each individual part of the keyboard is wrapped in a plastic bag for further protection against scuffs and scratches.
