Packaging & Accessories

There certainly is no denying the packaging container the M8600 comes in is unique. The long tube with bold graphics and bold styling certainly catches the eye, as it was obviously meant to. Gigabyte makes no attempt at hiding its true nature behind a bland façade as this flash light looking container screams “enthusiast gamer” with an unabashed enthusiasm which is almost infectious. Unfortunately, such a unique looking box means some challenges when it comes to shipping this to end users.

The tube itself consists of three sections with the bottom being for the accessories (including a cloth tote bag and replacement low friction feet) and the top being for the mouse itself. The central portion is simply there to tie the two halves together.

The list of accessories which accompany this mouse is extremely complete and completely overkill. There is a replacement 50 hour battery, the dual purpose battery charger / wireless receiver, two sets of interchangeable cables and the typical installation CD; you also get a replacement set of ultra low friction feet and a cloth tote bag to carry the accessories in! To say we are impressed with this accessory list is an understatement and the extra battery is definitely a nice addition.
