The front of the box has a cutout giving the buyer a nice view of the mouse and the ability to feel the shape of it. The rest of the packaging is standard fare with the features listed on the back in a few different languages along with a few shots of the mouse. This mouse is intended for right handed use, but lefties wouldn't have too much trouble using it either. Pricing is around $50 US.
PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
After removing the inner clamshell packaging, we have the mouse and a software CD. Picking it up I noticed right away that this mouse is wider than any other I've used and has a solid construction. The cord is a generous eight feet long and the USB 2.0 connector is gold plated as well.
The GM3200 I received for review has a red and orange “scaly” looking paint job to it with a glossy finish (and is also available in blue). The top button area and the sides have a rubberized coating that is quite soft and comfortable. On the end is a “Saitek” logo that pulsates in a few different colors for a pretty neat effect.
