Packaging and Accessories
Aukey has used the same minimalist packaging here as we saw with the KM-G4 keyboard, though it does not have the plastic-sealed wrap and we get the printed cardboard directly. On the front is the company name, an illustration of the keyboard, and a generic "Mechanical Keyboard" phrase, which allows them to use this same packaging style for other keyboards as well. It is on the back where we see the actual model name printed, along with their contact information and certification labels. There is a single flap in the middle to help keep the contents inside in place.
After having opened the packaging, we see the keyboard itself in a foam wrap and held in place between two shaped pieces of thicker foam. Good packaging overall here, and I received the keyboard in perfect condition. Underneath lies a multi-language user manual and a warranty card reminding you to register the product. The user manual is handy if you want to be sure of what the keyboard-specific secondary functions do, but otherwise, the KM-G8 is straightforward to set up and use.
There is one more accessory Aukey provides here, and it is placed in an unusual spot by being kept in place via the keyboard's cable tie. We see here a plastic ring-style keycap puller, and while I would have preferred a wire keycap puller instead, I have become accustomed to that not being the case. Regardless, I was not expecting to see one here, which makes it a pleasant surprise.
